About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Come visit our cabin, stay awhile and make some memories.

Year round, you will find it to be a place of peace and rest.

The cabin has three comfortable bedrooms, one bath, kitchen, loft and a great-room. It can sleep 6 and is decorated in a Northwood's style. The main floor bedroom has a queen bed, while the two upstairs bedrooms each have 2 twin beds. Bath and kitchen towels and bed linens are provided. The kitchen is equipped with dinnerware, utensils, cookware, and pantry items. A grill can be found on the screened porch. The great-room has a 6-person dining table, a wood burning stove should you run into cold nights and a TV with CD/DVD/Blue Ray player.

Nestled on the north shore of the Pine Creek Flowage just south of Tomahawk it is a wildlife haven if you take the time to discover it. In the summer, the high quality flowage boasts large wild rice patches with an abundance of water fowl and amphibians. You will have 200 feet of water frontage to discover. Enjoy the private dock or relax in a hammock on the screened porch. Listen to the abundant wildlife found on the water and in the woods surrounding the cabin. Because of the bald eagle that frequents the shoreline, our kids have dubbed the flowage, 'Eagle Strait'. Use our canoe or kayaks to explore the Wisconsin River or Pine Creek. Try your hand at fishing. We have caught Northern Pike, Walleye, Bluegill and Bass. A leisurely paddle across the flowage will yield berries in their seasons. In the evening, enjoy s 'mores at our fire pit and keep an eye out for wildlife activity on the water.

You won't hear the drone of a jet ski on Pine Creek Flowage, just the gentle swish of a canoe paddle. If you enjoy the sound of a jet ski, then with a 10 minute ride into Tomahawk you can rent a jet ski, pontoon boat or fishing boat to enjoy on one of the many lakes. If you’d like to bring your own small fishing boat, there is a public boat launch on the Wisconsin River, a bit down the road, and you can ferry your boat to our dock.

Crystal Beach is a fun outing on a hot day, followed by ice cream at the Windmill (our personal favorite). While in town, be sure to catch the Kwahamot Water Ski show on Tues, Thurs and Saturday nights. Its free and always a fun family event. There are plenty of opportunities for hiking or biking such as Bradley Park or the Hiawatha Trail. If you have an ATV, bring it along and enjoy the many trails in Harrison Hills. Many of the roads in the town of Tomahawk allow ATVs also. Activities such as golf and geocaching are available within a few minutes’ drive as well.

Tomahawk is a fun place to visit all year round. In the fall enjoy the beautiful foliage, hiking, biking and fishing. We are close to some good grouse hunting. In the winter you can take advantage of nearby snowmobile trails and there are ample opportunities for downhill and cross country skiing, snowshoeing and ice fishing.

If it's a cold or rainy day, stay cozy inside and enjoy a movie or play a game with the family. The wood burning stove will keep you comfy. There are games and movies for you to use during your visit. Or maybe you want to start on that book you always meant to read. In town there is shopping, a movie theater, bowling alley and restaurants. Our cabin is 35 minutes from Minocqua and Rhinelander and 40 minutes from Wausau and the many events and sites found there.

We don’t have a TV antenna, cable, satellite dish, or land line phone. Cell phone reception is good enough for voice and data. Please, no pets or smoking in the cabin.

Eagle Strait Cabin is approved by Lincoln County for Tourist Lodging and is Licensed by Lincoln County Health Department.

About Dirk and Nancy Wriedt

We purchased this property in order to build a place where we could make memories with our kids and that could also be a blessing to others. Each of our three kids loves something different about the cabin.

Dirk and Nancy Wriedt purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Dirk and Nancy Wriedt chose Northern Wisconsin

Nancy's family had a cabin in Tomahawk when she was a child and she has very fond memories from that time. When we wanted to build a vacation home our first choice was Tomahawk. Dirk had lots of ideas of how to build a comfortable, sturdy, well used space and this was his chance to apply his ideas.

What makes this cabin unique

We love that the cabin looks and feels nothing like our house. It really is a break from the norm. Its been said that a person can never step in to the same river twice. One of the things we love about this property is that the water is always changing. Each time we visit its a different view because of how the rice and other plants grow and eventually die back. Its always different, yet still the same river.

Just as beautiful in the winter!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Eagle Strait Cabin. We love it there - it is just perfect for the four of us (two couples) for a winter get-away. Quiet, cozy and comfortable. And close enough for at least two snow-shoe trails that we are familiar with in the Tomahawk area. A little slice of Heaven for an extended winter weekend - thank you!

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cabin while we were in the area for a ski trip. The cabin was incredibly well stocked with everything we needed to cook our meals and feel at home. Thanks for the great stay!

Almost Perfect

  • 4 of 5

My family of six had an unforgettable weekend here! Every detail was well thought out from the stocked kitchen to the fabulous shelf of games to keep the kiddos busy. The only problem was the fact there was no water! The drawdown made all the water disappear!! The kids were disappointed that they couldn't fish. But thankfully the loft was a big hit and the hammock was too! Maybe we can come back next summer and enjoy some water activities! The ONLY reason We didn't give a perfect score was because of the water.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed the cabin and found it had everything you needed, at least on the inside. Fortunately, a river draw down, done by the paper mills on the river so they can maintain the embankments and such, only happens every 10-15 years it seems. The water will be back to normal by early December 2016.
