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.
There is an outdoor dog kennel available to use.

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
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.
~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.
The cabin is all that we had hoped and more. The dreary weather was all the more reason why the large fireplace was so welcoming. I would definitely stay again as the cabin has all the amenities that one would need for two days or the entire week.
Our group of 8 stayed 5 nights over New Year's. It worked well for our group. Plenty of room to park our trailers and sleds. Snowmobile trail is just out the door, gas available next door at Red's Big Bear. Trails were OK as it was early season. Since our stay they'very got lots more snow. Cabin was clean and comfortable. Loved making a fire in the stone fireplace each night to warm up. Kitchen was well stocked with large crock pot, griddle, coffee pot, etc. Owners were accessible. We will be staying here again for winter sled trips as it fit our needs. Thanks for the hospitality!
The cabin was very clean, and extremely cool. Very cozy with all the comforts. One of our sons thought we should move there.
Josh took care of anything that was needed, which was pretty much taking care of us on a kayak trip down the river, because everything else was well prepared. They leave you alone unless you need something from them. We were there for 4 days and mainly spent our time riding our ATVs around the area trails. The trails were good...a little too good (like roads), but we found better/more challenging riding up in Chequamegon Forest, and it's a short ride on nice trails to get there. We also did some fishing and kayaking. We mostly brought all our own food, so we didn't try the restaurant for anything other than some drinks ;) What we saw looked good, and people gave favorable comments. We had a great time, the weather was perfect, and we'll definitely be back....maybe even for snowmobiling.
Our only complaints, and these aren't really complaints but suggestions, were in the yard around the cabin. It's well maintained and has a nice lawn, but with it's proximity to the bar/restaurant and canoe rentals, it could be made a little more private. Even a privacy fence on two sides would be a big improvement with some "No Parking" signs. We had a couple people park pretty much in the yard to go to the restaurant. Even so, it was still nice and quiet. We don't have any complaints of being near the restaurant as far as noise or anything. The grill.....hmmmm....it's a standard Weber Kettle, but the grates were so corroded away that you had to put something on it to keep the food from falling through. We bought a lower (for the charcoal) grate and left it for them, but couldn't find the cooking grate locally. Minor thing I'm sure Josh will fix....he just may not have known. We had brought some wood for the fire pit, but it was located in an undesirable location, so we never used it. It might be a product of the trees surrounding the cabin for safety, but it was down by some tall weeds and not really "friendly". Maybe a new spot would be better.
All in all, we loved it, and our two teenage boys had a great time....we even got them off their phones for a few days. I'd definitely recommend it.
We had a great time enjoying the north woods! The cabin was perfect with a nice location to UTV/ATV trails and having the restaurant in walking distance was very convenient. Thank you for the outstanding accommodation!
We had a great stay in this rustic cabin! Our boys were in awe when they walked in, both saying "whoaaa!" when they saw the inside. The wildlife display is a good example of the history of the cabin. The stone fireplace is beautiful and the accommodations very comfortable. The cabin has a very good feel to it, we all felt relaxed and at peace while we were there.
The view is lovely and it was incredibly peaceful. I very much enjoyed coffee on the back deck in the morning.
We loved going over to Red's, everyone was very friendly and the food was great. We also rented a kayak for a day, which was very convenient and fun, they were very accommodating and made this very easy. We loved looking for the elk and hiking at Little Falls Slough Gundy was one of our favorites.
We can't wait to go back to this cabin! Thank you Josh and Kaisa for sharing this cabin. Amy, Juston, Henry, Harry and Topper
It was a fun vintage cabin in the Northwoods. Everything worked and it had the amenities we expected. It was ready early so we were able to arrive sooner than 4pm. The cabin was filled with mounts so there was a lot of conversation pieces. It was raining so we were unable to canoe. Overall fun weekend!
