Overview

Wisconsin Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

INTERIOR

Built in 2008. 1450 Sq. Ft, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, Kitchen/ living room Great Room layout. Slate floors in bathrooms. Two sided open fireplace between great room and 4 season sun room with vaulted ceiling.

Many windows. All new appliances including range, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Skylights in upstairs bedrooms. Built-ins in bedrooms. All new furniture throughout the cabin.

There are two queen size beds in two of the bedrooms and one room has two small single beds. There is also a Pack and Play available for a baby. And there is an inflatable queen size bed that can be used in the sunroom to accomodate extra sleeping.

THE GROUNDS

There is an Artesian well that is 200 feet deep in the granite ledge. Artesian wells are more common in sand and very uncommon in granite.

Because of the artesian well, there is a dripping pipe you'll notice near the house where the water pump pipe is located. This well provides some of the best water you’ll ever taste.

The cabin has total privacy with no neighbors on either side. There are a couple cabins across the river and just north of the cabin that are visible when at the river's edge.

THE RIVER/LAND

The total acreage is approximately 6.5 with 300 feet of river frontage. The cabin is set back from the river so as to not be visible from the river, yet maintains a view of the river. At the river’s edge there is a picnic area. There are also two wooden platforms for setting up tents.

The land is wooded with a mix of small pine, some large pine old growth and hardwood. There are walking paths throughout wooded lot. There are no houses on either side of the lot. It is not uncommon to see a lot of wildlife. There are many deer, grouse, eagles that nest just up the river, and an occasional bear. The 6.5 acres that the cabin sit on abutts 1500 acres of undeveloped land.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES

In the summer months you can enjoy hiking or mountain biking, swimming in the river, canoeing or kayaking or fishing. The Chippewa river is one of the best rivers for fishing in the state of Wisconsin. Seven miles straight north is where the Chippewa River comes out of the Chippewa Flowage. At the Flowage there is a great new boat landing. An entire day could be spent exploring the flowage via boat.

TUSCOBIA TRAIL

The cabin is 3/4 of a mile from Tuscobia Trail. This is a premiere trail for ATVs in the spring through fall and Snowmobiling in the winter. The best thing is that the cabin is far enough away from the trail that you never see or hear atvs or snowmobiles. So, if that does not interest you, you won't be bothered by any noise. If you are into atving or snowmobiling, you have close access to the trail.

PROFESSIONAL FISHING GUIDE

There is a professional fishing guide that lives about 1 mile down the road. He is available to take people out for day trips to some of the best fishing spots in the area. He has very reasonable rates, provides shore lunches at noon, and cleans and packs fish at the end of the day. His guiding services are perfect for novices who are not sure what bait to use to experienced people who just want to get to the best locations right away. Inquire about rates.

WINTER ACTIVITIES

In the winter there is also plenty of land to go cross country skiing or snowshoeing. The road down to the cabin is a perfect sled run in the winter months.

MORE PICTURES

There are many more pictures of the cabin and information about the region at the cabin website at rivercabin.info.

About Jason

We currently live in Minneapolis, and before that I lived in Madison, WI. My wife and I grew up in rural locations. I'm originally from northern Wisconsin near Rhinelander and my wife is originally from near Hanover, NH.

Jason purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Jason chose Wisconsin

On trips to and from my parents (now in Eagle River, WI) we found that we kept stopping about half way for baby-out-of-the-car breaks. One small park in Ojibwa next to the Chippewa River saw many diaper changes. Since the trip was about 4.5 hours, and we were wanting to get away on the weekends more often to have our kids know a country experience, we started to look in this area. It was perfect for us. A half way point for my parents and siblings in WI and next to a river. My wife and I have taken a houseboat all the way down the Mississippi River and enjoy the freedom of rivers.

What makes this cabin unique

When we are at the cabin we enjoy going on hikes and kayaking in the river. We also enjoy being so close to the Chippewa Flowage and a national park. In the winter our driveway down to the cabin is a perfect sled run for us and the kids.

Nice relaxing weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the cabin. All the information we needed was provided, (phone numbers, check out instructions, etc.)

The path to the river was so inviting. We spent every morning sitting in the porch with our coffee watching for wildlife, which we saw one morning when a bear came to inspect the smell of breakfast cooking. Love the sky lights in the upstairs bedrooms. I would bring a DVD player next time. It does kind of echo with no window treatments to absorb sound, so late sleepers might have a hard time getting in their ZZZs.

chippewa river cabin

  • 4 of 5

Nice place. Well laid out and furnished. All of us liked it and are considering a future rental in late Sept/early Oct. If I owned this property I would probably mow the space from the house to the river more expansively with the idea of keeping the mosquitos down. The location is perfect from the standpoint of launching day trips to different parts of WI.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review . Your point on the mosquito front is well taken. We just cleared brush on either side of the trail and hope to widen it and get more grass growing by next spring. We just ran out of time last year. The mosquito issue was compounded by the much above average rainfall that we received this year. They are not nearly as bad with normal rainfall amounts. We look forward to having you spend another week in the fall. That time of year is also beautiful at the cabin - with the bonus of no mosquitoes.

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just incredible. It was BETTER than the pictures and provided everything we needed. We loved in the indoor fire place for cool evenings. We loved the area, the Chippewa River, and having kayaks and a canoe available was awesome. The young adults in our party used those frequently. We definitely recommend this cabin.

Nice updated cabin

  • 4 of 5

This listing and photos accurately described the property. The owner was very easy to work with and had everything ready for us. If you are looking for a very private, northwoods stay this would work great.

Summer week on the river

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends joined me for a wonderful week at the river cabin. With all the windows which are fully screened you feel as if you are camping in a screen tent among a remote and beautiful woods along a gentle flowing river. But with all the modern amenities of a new cabin you get the great outdoors without having to rough it.

We spent many hours either floating down the river with inner tubes or simply setting our lawn chairs in the water in front of the cabin. One of the guys had good success catching smallmouth bass just wading along the shorelines. At night the stars were in fully glory as there are no city lights to distort their natural shine. We brought along road bikes and found some excellent routes to bike near Radisson.

No need to bring bottled water as you cannot buy water as good as the artesian well water. All members of our group would highly reccomend this cabin as a great place to come and get away. The owners are very helpful as I asked a slew of questions which always got quick and informative responses.

We will be back next year.

A Great Experience !

  • 5 of 5

Three of us (women between the ages of 28-52) spent the weekend snowshoeing in the area and nearby trails. We wanted to experience the outdoors, the serenity of nature, and a clean, comfortable, modern cabin. We experienced it all~ The cabin is identical in person as in the pictures--a great comfort to walk into a place feeling the same as when you viewed the pictures online. My family rented this cabin in the summer of 2010 and we had great fun kayaking, hiking, and experiencing wildlife (bears, deer, grouse, eagles). We Will Be Back !
