Overview

Northern Wisconsin Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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 Northern Wisconsin

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.

Beautiful northwoods cabin located in the heart of the Flambeau River State Forest

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been staying here for years. Located within walking distance of one of two restaurants, river access and the DNR office, we have all we need after a day on the river. The accommodations are clean and well maintained. Complete with full kitchen, three bedrooms, full bath, and living room with a large fireplace, perfect for those cold rainy days. The owners are very welcoming and eager to to make your stay a memorable one. This has been a perfect fit for our grouse hunts, Muskie fishing, or kayak trips down the river. Great people

Beautiful and Centrally Located, but not very Secluded

  • 4 of 5

Overall the cabin was amazing. Everything we were looking for and expecting for the cabin, surrounding buildings were a little bit of a disappointment. Which wasn't much of an issue but just wasn't what we'er expecting. Owners are very nice and close for assistance but not intrusive.

Pros:

- Cabin is a Northern Cabin to the "T"

- Fireplace is big!

- Great cozy layout and everything you need

- Close to the river (not right off the river)

- Centrally located to lots of parks and towns

- Bar and grill right next door (if your looking for that)

- Owners very nice and close by to help

Cons:

- Not very secluded

- Surrounded by cabins and bar

- Not right off the river

Owner's Response: Thanks - you have listed numerous benefits of staying at the cabin and others will agree. The cabin’s front yard is not very secluded, but the backyard offers the privacy that renters are looking for. Long Creek runs along the back yard of the cabin which does offer access to the Flambeau River, and can be quite beautiful to view.

Quick Winter Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I brought our two dogs up for a quick weekend getaway - it was wonderful. We were able to spend lots of time relaxing in front of the fire, enjoying the peace and quiet of northern Wisconsin. We went for a drink at Red's lodge next door, didn't stay long but seemed nice. We spent most of our time cooking at home and just relaxing by the fire. The kitchen had all of the utensils we needed for our few days. Our dogs liked having the back yard to run around in, plenty of space if you have dogs or kids. We also went cross country skiing, we rented skis at the Crazy Loon which the owners had suggested - really wonderful experience at Holy Cross Trails for the morning.

We would definitely go again, and since the cabin accommodates so many we would like to bring friends or family with us next time as well. Seems like it would be a fun trip in the summer, too. Was too cold for the outdoor firepit or to spend time by the river, but the scenery was gorgeous.

Nice stay, good value

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was clean and comfy. I loved all the deer on the wall. Red's big bear lodge next door is a great option if you are not in the mood to cook. Beautiful area with a lot of outdoor activities to offer. We used it as a stay for work, which is much more affordable and convenient than hotels in the area.

A++++

Flambeau River Kayaking

  • 5 of 5

we met proprietors Josh and Kaisa on our first trip to the Flambeau River six years ago. They are great people and we warmed up to them immediately. Josh can set you up to do just about anything in the area, kayaking, fishing, hunting, and lodging. We have been renting his cabin for the last three trips and he is always there for a shuttle up the River. The cabin fits our needs perfectly. Convenient, clean, well appointed and roomy. My wife and I couldn't ask for more. We are already planning for our next trip. Thanks again

Owner's Response: Nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our cabin and that you already are planning on coming back. We really enjoyed meeting you. One of the many incentives of vacationing at our cabin is all the great things you can enjoy right in your back yard: kayaking, fishing, hunting and so much more. This beautiful area has so much to offer. Thank you!
