About the property

Rustic Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-9)

We are located in the heart of the Flambeau River State Forest. The Flambeau River State Forest offers a variety of recreational opportunities during all seasons for the outdoor enthusiast. This rustic cabin has a functional floor plan with its fully equipped kitchen and split log kitchen table. The living room is anchored by a full-wall, stone, wood burning fireplace and is flush with light filtered through the antique windows.

The three bedrooms are all roughly the same size and are furnished with twin beds & dressers with one having a bunk bed set in it. Bedroom #1 can be converted from a twin to king bed. The cabin can host up to nine people by utilizing the full size sofa sleeper. Each room’s central LP heat vent can be individually controlled. There are no enclosed closets in the bedrooms but rather a suspended, hard closet rod upon which to hang street clothes or heavy, wet hunting/fishing gear so that it dries. The bathroom has a tub/shower combination. The enclosed entryway covers wood for the fireplace and has shelf space for coolers and other equipment. Enjoy your morning coffee on the back deck as you view Long Creek.

Long Creek runs along the backside of the cabin and gives you access to the North Fork Flambeau River. We are also located on Snowmobile/ATV trail #25 next to business #1. So no need to trailer just get up and go.

About Josh & Kaisa Schuelke

We love living in the Northwoods and all it has to offer. We are very avid outdoors people who truly enjoy hunting, fishing, kayaking, campfires, and living on the river. We live everyday where most people come to vacation. We have three children that keep us on our toes.

Josh & Kaisa Schuelke purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Josh & Kaisa Schuelke chose Winter

We both grew up in the Northern Wisconsin area. We bought the cabin in 2014 when the former owner offered it to us. We like the location in the heart of the Flambeau River State Forest and close to our home. This cabin has such a unique rustic quality and a great story of how it came to be where it is.

What makes this cabin unique

~HUNTING~ The area has some of the best grouse, woodcock and whitetail habitat in the country. Regardless of what you are after, with 90,000+ acres at your disposal, yours days afield will be filled with adventure.

~FLAMBEAU RIVER & BASS LAKE~ The Flambeau River consists of the N. & S. forks which contain Class I-IV rapids for advanced canoers and kayakers and also have placid stretches for those looking for an easy float. There are campsites located on both forks and shuttle service is available at Big Bear Recreational Rentals located next door. Bass Lake, located deep in the forest off Tower Rd. (get directions from the Forest Office) is a non-motorized wilderness lake awaiting your fishing or floating enjoyment. There is parking and a groomed trail to the lake to carry in your gear. Pack a picnic lunch and eat near the launch at the base of a large hemlock grove.

~CHIPPEWA FLOWAGE, CONNORS LAKE AND LAKE OF THE PINES~ The nearest launch for the 'Big Chip' as it is know, is just north of Hwy 70 on Cty Rd. CC north of New Post, WI. This flowage, known for record muskies, is largely undeveloped and loaded with numerous islands so bring a map. Pack lunch and pull up on any of the 140 islands for your own private break in the fishing action. Connors Lake is known for walleye and has great sand beach & playground which is within walking distance of the boat launch which is great for children. More developed than Lake of the Pines, it's crystal clear. Lake of the Pines, known for good pan fishing, also has a beach (at the campground) and a launch.

~Hunting/Fishing~ licenses can be purchased at The Flambeau River Office, across the street from the cabin. Bait can be purchased in Winter or Phillips.

~ATV's/SNOWMOBILING/ SKIING~ The cabin is located on trail #25 next to business #1. The forest contains mile and miles of trails for all types of activities with maps for each available at the Forest Office, across the street from the cabin.

Isolation at it's best

  • 4 of 5

Love heading "up north" in the winter, in Wisconsin. It was crazy cold, but we were prepared, and the fireplace was wonderful. Talk about getting away from it all, neither my wife's or my phone received signal, so we were truly disconnected. However, it didn't take long to get to town to pick up some milk. Some very nice hiking/skiing trails in the area. Beautiful snow, great fireplace, hot shower. Don't need much else in winter.

Great Place to spend our weekend.

  • 5 of 5

My family of six stayed here the second weekend of December to get a Christmas Tree. We absolutely loved it here. The huge fireplace was great and we used it everyday, everyone had a place to sleep and the beds were comfortable. On Saturday we were able to walk out the front door and into the forest where we had a permit to cut a Christmas tree. We never even started the car, we just walked a mile or so into the forest and found our tree. We only saw a few people out during our entire stay. The kids played card games and stayed off electronics for the first time in ages. This was the most refreshing weekend we've had in a very long time and we will certainly be back next winter again and want to come up for the summer as well.

Large cabin located just off the Flambeau River

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting the cabin. We were very happy with the Cabin size and the area it was located. Large State Forest across the street offering a lot of biking/hiking opportunities. Approximately 1/2 mile east on CR W was a parking lot(free) with 2 separate trail heads. 1 for ATV/Snowmobiles and another for hiking/biking/X country skiing for enjoyment of all. We already booked again for next year. Lots of room to stretch out and relax when getting back from a full day of recreation.

Thank you Josh & Kaisa

Good Location Leaky roof

  • 2 of 5

The location is great for ATVing, however it rained pretty hard and we had water leaking in. It needs to get fixed up some before it would become a great location.

Great place to stay! Cannot wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Even though the weather didn't cooperate for our planned canoe trip down the river, we still enjoyed our weekend due to the great accommodations! A cozy, fully furnished cabin, located next door to a great bar/restaurant and within walking distance of hiking trails, fishing spots, and the river....can't beat it! Already checking the calendar to see when we can return! The owners were quick to respond to messages and were close by if anything came up, but we truly felt like it was "our cabin" while we were there! I also want to add that even though we didn't utilize the rental/shuttle service next door (Big Bear Recreational Rentals) because of the weather, Dan the owner was super helpful and pleasant to deal with! Hoping next time to be able to take advantage of the many services they offer!
