Pinecone retreat is a newly built cabin in 2008. It is in a great resort, Spiderlake resort. We are on a chain of 5 lakes. The cabin has a great view to the water and just down the hill is your dock. A little further over are 2 more docks and a swimming area.

This cabin is in a great recreational area. There are many other lakes nearby. Snowmobiling and ice fishing in the winter and ATV riding in the summer.

Just 5 miles away is Birchwood with many restaurants and shopping. There is also Doolitle park a great place for the kids to play. Just Rite on Main is a great shopping experience enjoyed year round.

About Jean Boatman

Jean Boatman, I am a vacation home owner along with my husband Wayne. My husband drives truck and I am an interior decorator/painter. We built and designied this cabin with comfort and up north decor in mind.

Jean Boatman purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Jean Boatman chose Northern Wisconsin

This home is for our enjoyment now and later when we retire. We had been managing a campground in this resort and love the area. There are so many great places to dine out & shop. We enjoy The Birchwood Cafe and Just Right On Main for dining and shopping. We decided to build when the new lots became available and were first to get the best veiw of the lake.

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy the people who come into this area. There is fishing, Atv trails and many nice shopping and entertaining things to do in the area. There is snowmobile trails in the winter and ice fishing or just relaxing in this comfy cabin. I also designed the basement to be either a family game area or it can be transformed into a space for scrapbooking and other crafts for up to 8 people.

A lovely place for relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Pine Cone was immaculate, really well equipped and was really enjoyed by our family. Was disappointed that the beach area was about 11/2 'city' blocks away. Grounds were nicely kept. We had a very nice time, wished the weather would of cooperated more.

Owner's Response: Our setting for the cabin is one of the finest in the area. A wonderful view from the front deck. Morning coffee is especially enjoyable in this serene setting.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice clean modern cabin with all the amenities. Large deck on front of cabin overlooking Spider Lake. Lots of sleeping room. Very peaceful. Located right on the ATV trails which makes trailering your machines to a trail head unnecessary. If you want a good meal or cold beer the Spider Lake Saloon is within walking distance.

Jean's cabin was once again beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

I think this was my 3rd or 4th stay at Jean's cabin. Everything was, once again, first class. I'm going to try to book a stay later this year but definitely again next year.

Great place for 2 families

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my family and my sisters family. 6 kids ranging in ages. This house worked well for us. Had a basement that the kids slept and played in. It kept cool on the hot days. Had satalite TV which was nice in the evenings. Had wi-fi which the kids used on their laptops for homeschooling. The upstairs level was perfect. Nice size kitchen and open. The kitchen had every appliance you would ever need. The deck looking over the lake was nice. There is a bar next door, but you barley notice because all the windows face the other way, over the lake. We walked down to the beach, which was more of a boat landing, no real sand. We used the dock that came with the house, and used the paddle boat too. The town of Birchwood is only 5 minutes away and has some cute shops and places to eat. This is a great house for the price, you really can't get a better deal for your money.

Very Nice Ice Fishing/Snowmobile trip

  • 5 of 5

My college buddies and I rented Pine cone Retreat in February for a long weekend of Ice fishing and snowmobiling.

What impressed me the most was how clean the cabin was. It was immaculate.

Cabin has everything you need. I cant think of a utensil they didn't have.

For those of you coming up for snowmobiling or 4 wheeling there is plenty of parking. We had 5 trucks and 3 trailers and had no problem finding room to park.

Ice fishing during the day was slow, we caught a few Pike on tip ups near sundown. After dark we had good luck catching crappies.

In the winter you could get snowmobiles and 4 wheelers down to the lake, but there is no access if you want to drive a truck or large ice house out on the ice.

Snowmobile trail runs right along the border of the property. You are on in seconds.

We had 7 people in the cabin, and everyone slept comfortably.

WIFI was adequate, I would say its normal for the area.

We had a few questions for Jean before the trip and she always got back to me within minutes.

Over all, No complaints, highly recommended.
