About Julie Windschitl

We have three Children. All boys and love the outdoors and sports! Our boys are 8, 12 and 13 years old. We live in Afton MN, Alps Alps Ski area, just a couple blocks off the Saint Croix River on 5 acres so we are taking all our time now enjoying our new home, woods, trails and the river!

Julie Windschitl purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Julie Windschitl chose Northern Wisconsin

We love the location and it has so much to offer, without the taxes of being on a lake!! Or the constant worrying about our children on the lake outside playing!! Tagalong Golf Course is right down the road and we love to golf. Red Cedar Lake Chain is only blocks away and we love to boat and fish with the boys. Most of all it was a new constructin and the price was right!!

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is very private!! We love this. You are also still close to everything but can relax in the woods and watch the wildlife. We see deer almost everyday and if you are lucky you will see a bear! Yes we have bears and we love them!! But don't be afraid they don't come around too much. :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you! We are having a wonderful time and enjoying your beautiful place. The kids are finding it to be a very stress free environment after tournament play.

Very cute cabin.

  • 4 of 5

After we finally found it..follow directions to a T...we enjoyed the cabin very much. The firepit was perfect. Master bedroom is very spacious and the windows let in so much natural light. The upstairs area is roomy as well and worked great for our teenager.

Summer trip to a cabin up North!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin with plenty of room! Loved being up North! We didn't get to have as many campfires as we would have liked due to rain, but really liked the big campfire area when we could. Water was a bit far, but luckily we had friends that lived about 4 miles away so we docked our boat there and drove to their place when we would go fishing! Nice fishing lake too! Would recommend this to anyone looking for a secluded place to stay!

Had a great time at the cabin. It was everything we wanted and more. There was so much to do in the area. We spent time fishing and swimming at nearby Doolittle park, as well as sat around and relaxed. Thank you so much for the wonderful stay.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the birchwood cabin. The owner was so helpful and kind. The cabin was perfect for our little family getaway. The master suite is delightful! Our three year old daughter loved the bunk beds and toys in the kids room. The loft room was sunny and inviting. All the comforts of home, with the relaxing vibe only a vacation property can offer.

Winter Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Birchwood Cabin. The cabin was ready for our check in (plowed and shoveled wonderfully after a huge snow storm), and we settled right in for 3 days/nights of family fun. There were plenty of comfortable beds for our family. The quiet and solitude was enjoyed by our entire family; star gazing was great on the chilly winter evenings. Thank you and we highly recommend this cabin!!
