|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
200-plus feet of lakefront. Fish off the pier. Canoe. Kayak. Boat. Just play in the water. Enjoy a beverage and a good book on the wrap-around deck facing the lake. Roast hot dogs and make s'mores at the campfire area. Rest, relax, renew. Hear the call of the loons. Watch the eagles soar and the deer walk by. The little ones can fish off the pier. For those who can cast, fishing off the private pier might even land a small mouth bass or big musky.
Maximum of eight in the cabin at any one time and no more than 6 adults (those over the age of 18) staying at any one time. Please look elsewhere if your party is larger than 8.
Our wallhanging as you go to the lower level says it all:
'Cabin Rules--Welcome to the good life, where the rules are short and sweet. No schedules, no deadlines, no dress code. We keep it simple. Take time to rest, relax & renew. Breathe deep, make s'mores and spend time enjoying the great outdoors. It's the perfect time to hike and explore.'
Whether you want to chill out or be active or both, this homey, comfortable 'home-away-from-home' cabin, located on 7 wooded acres with 200-plus footage on Upper Buckatabon, is perfect any time of the year. You'll love the spectacular sunrises and lake views from the dining area and living room. And the cabin feel permeates everywhere, from the decor to the pine walls and ceilings.

If you're seeking privacy, this is the place. A wooded area/land separtes the cabin and the house on the left (which is about 1/2 block away) and a hill hides the cabin from the house on the right.

John is Wisconsin born and raised and has been fishing and snowmobiling in Northern Wisconsin since a child. I'm a Kansas girl who fell in love with this Wisconsin guy and the Northern Woods of Wisconsin. We're blessed to call this cabin in the woods ours.
Teres Lambert purchased this cabin in 1985
John's parents purchased the house in 1985 and lived in it until their passing. We enjoyed the location (view and activities) so much that we purchased the property from his parents' estate in September 2010.
The peace and quiet. The spectacular sunrises and sunsets. The fact that you can't see immediate neighbors. The convenience of the lake and all of its activities. And there's nothing like roasting hot dogs and/or marshmallows while enjoying a beverage at the secluded campfire area while viewing the lake.
We swam, boated, canoed, watched the stars and listened to the loons and met fisherman on the lake. The house is so lovely, clean, well equipped and conducive in every way for North Woods enjoyment!
This was our second year staying here. We have been going to the same lake for years. We just loved the cabin, very well kept and very clean. Owners are very accommodating to us. We love it and plan on going year after year. Lots of fish of all kinds and very relaxing. Love waking up to the sounds of the loons and watching the eagles. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quite, relaxing get away!!
This cabin was awesome. How they describe it is to a T. Where it is located out in the middle of the Northwoods on a lake is so peaceful and it makes forget about everything and want to stay there. I rented this cabin to just get away and relax. The wildlife was everywhere. Deer by the cabin everynight, Bald eagles soaring above Wolves howling at night or early morning. The cabin and clean and very well stocked with just about anything you need and its spacious. I had three buddies come up and stay and we fished all week. I love musky fishing and they were hard to come by had a couple hits but couldnt land one. Pan fish and bass were abundant caught alot of fish. I would definitely recommend this cabin to spend and awesome week at. I know a couple of my buddies want the information to come back here with their families and just us guys fishing again. I definitley will be back.
Had excellent a time during our stay. Our group has been coming up to buckatabon for years now and Krueger cabin has been the best for location for accommodations. The fishing has been great, nice pier for our boat. Look forward for next year.
We truly enjoyed this spacious lake house in its remote and beautiful setting. The cabin was clean, comfy, well-equipped and more than adequate for four adults and two kids. We rented a pontoon boat and a canoe to fish, explore and spend time on the water. The house's wonderful dock on the lake was perfect for the boats, as well as allowing the kids to float or fish from the pier. Some area highlights included a short drive to hike to a waterfall, pony rides for the kids in Eagle River and we ate a the Burnt Bridge restaurant twice (yum!). But just sitting on the expansive deck overlooking the water, listening to the loons, sighting bald eagles and relaxing with a book is enough to get us back up there.
It was a wonderful week at Krueger's cottage on Lake Buckataban, plenty of sunshine a little bit of rain and alot of fishing. We enjoyed the great wrap around deck and experienced alot of wildlife. It was a breathe taking view everyday, the eagles flew overhead, the deer ate on the ridge outside the dining room window and the loons called to us every evening. What a way to spend the week!
Just returned from a Fall week at the Krueger House. The very attractive rustic home comfortably accommodated two couples, one upstairs and one downstairs, with quality sleeping and bath facilities on both levels.
The beautiful deck view of Lake Buckatabon is currently my computer screensaver.
Departed on Saturday and received a return check for the damage deposit on the following Wednesday.
Not only would I recommend Krueger House, I hope to make a return visit next Fall, after trying a different VRBO location the last four years.
Quite simply, it is a great home and local, featuring quality fishing, dining and yes, even gambling.
Bonds Fall is about an hour north of the cabin. Watersmeet has a fun trout farm where you can feed the amazingly fast and hungry fish and catch some to take home and put on the campfire.
