Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

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.

Beds: king in master and queen in second main-floor bedroom, two twin beds in lower level bedroom, plus a fold-out couch and a cot. Full bathroom located on each level. Walk-out lower level. Rec room has game table, bar, TV and plenty of space. Lots of closet space. New deck surrounds three sides of the cabin. Fireplace on main level. Woodburner in lower level rec room. Make your own meals in the fully furnished kitchen or enjoy nearby restaurants. Storage area in lower level perfect for fishing gear and has sink for cleaning fish. Two-car detached garage.

Cabin feel throughout with pine interior walls.

Although there's no sandy beach for building sand castles, there's shallow water with sandy bottom where the kids can play while an adult watches on the pier. No weeds.

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.

Located just 8 1/2 miles from Eagle River. Ideal place to escape. Bring your own boat or rent a small fishing boat with motor from Bauer's Dam for just $175/week or rent a pontoon boat from Dave just down the road for $75/half day, $150/day or $700/week. Contact info provided.

Lake Buckatabon is one of the premier musky lakes in Northern Wisconson and has great walleye and bass fishing as well. You can even catch a few big ones off the pier.

Lots of family activities nearby in Eagle River, St. Germaine and the UP.

This cabin has been in our family since 1985 and is now our retreat.

Krueger Cabin is available from midMay through October.

Wonderful north woods adventure

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed the week. The house is lovely. We had all the comforts of home. The wildlife was abundant. The guys and granddaughter were pleased with the fishing. I could sit on the deck all day, what a view. Thank you for sharing this treasure in the northwoods with us.

Place is better than described !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from an 8 day stay.We really enjoyed the Krueger Cabin.The main thing we seek is privacy.No problems there.The pier could handle my 17.5 fish and ski with no problems.Launch is 5min down the road.All appliances are pretty new and work great.Maybe a better equipped cabin than our home.Beautiful outdoor surroundings,nice lake(s).Known primarily for muskie(saw one and got broke off 3 times fishing for crappies)I was not impressed with the fishery but it was my first trip.Theres a 2 1/2 car garage thats spotless for your use,really cool.Charcoal Weber thats VERY important to us and a fantastic Weber Genesis gas grill if gas is your thing.Wood fireplaces upstairs and down that we used.I could smell the wood when I came in from the lake,WOW!!Lots of bike trails just a short drive away or you could just ride the roads,not too busy.Eagles,loons,deer,turkeys and great birdwatching,right from the FANTASTIC deck.Lots of glass,really nice.Owners were fast and great to deal with.VERY clean place.Lots of closet space.Drop yourself off at this place with some groceries and you wouldn't need to leave for the week.We didn't!!!OH,and don't miss Laneies Fireplace supper club about a 30min drive up 45.Really good.Twilight Supper club is not recommended and the bar (Club 45 up old 45)has some great bar food and pizza.Weve been coming to the area for the past 4yrs and these place never disappoint.If you choose to vacation at The Krueger Cabin,I think you will be very pleased.Oh we liked the beds too.

Amazing week on the lake

  • 5 of 5

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!!

wekk of fishing and R&R

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fun & relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

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.

About Teres Lambert

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 own Krueger Cabin and make it available to others who appreciate the North Woods.

Teres Lambert purchased this cabin in 1985

Why Teres Lambert chose Conover

John's parents purchased the house in 1985. We enjoyed the location (view and activities) so much that we purchased the property from his parents' estate in September 2010.

What makes this cabin unique

No visible neighbors. The peace and quiet. The spectacular sunrises and sunsets. 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay was perfect--from watching the deer, listening to the loons, viewing the eagles to the fishing and everything we needed in the cabin. We appreciated the fact that the lake is quiet and we were not being subject to non-stop jet-skiers, water skiers and noise. It is so quiet here.

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.
