3 Bedroom, Newly Renovated Lake-front Cottage with Full Amenities + Fireplace

Serendipity Cottage/Cabin at Cable, Wisconsin

3 bedroom cottage on the lakeshore of Lake Namakagon's Mumm's Bay. Perched only feet from the lakeshore, this private location offers a panoramic lake view, sandy lake bottom for good swimming, stand-up paddleboards (SUPs & kayaks available - inquire when reserving), lakeside fire pit and private dock for easy access to these popular fishing and recreational waters.

Enjoy quiet campfires and the sounds of the waves breaking on the shore with the Loons in the quiet background. A private dock (pier) and nice seclusion make this a pristine choice!

Inside, cozy up around the fire in the great room on the large sectional. On rainy days, enjoy the entertainment system with Apple TV, blue-tooth enabled sound bar, and DVD player. Access the high-speed Wi-Fi from all the rooms. Or choose from our selection of games and puzzles for all ages!

Open kitchen, updated appliances, dishwasher and all the kitchen electronics and dishes you need to easily entertain.

Cozy beds + bedding in all rooms and plenty of sleeping spaces for the whole crew! The updated bathroom is elegant and includes all modern amenities. (Just bring your own towels.)

Outside, access all the outdoor sports and recreation you can imagine! From biking to fishing to cross-country skiing, the Cable/Hayward area provides miles of the best off-road trails in the midwest!

Serendipity is smack dab in the heart of some of Wisconsin’s best mountain biking single track, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and snowshoeing! Ride your snowmobile to the front door of your cottage rental when you stay at Serendipity! Easy access to Snowmobile Trail #8 and the trails around Lake Namakagon. Some of the most beautiful and challenging X-C ski trails in the Cable, Wisconsin Area and in the State of Wisconsin are only minutes from Serendipity, including the Rock Lake cross-country ski trails, Namekagon Ski Trail and the world-renowned American Birkebeiner Ski Trail.

Lake Namakagon is the tenth largest natural lake in Wisconsin. *Serendipity* cottage is located on the shoreline of Picnic Point on Mumm's Bay. One of only three Wisconsin lakes to be managed as a trophy musky lake, Lake Namakagon is a fisherman’s paradise. We regularly see musky catches of 40” or more!

About Jason & Colette

Jason first fell in love with this home when he rented it from the previous owners! He had spent years visiting the Cable area for the Birkebeiner, Fat Tire, and to enjoy all the amazing outdoor recreation. He particularly loved Lake Namakogon - one of the most pristine and beautiful lakes Northwestern Wisconsin has to offer - and the privacy of this property. So when we randomly found out the previous owners were moving south and the cabin was up for sale, it felt like serendipity!

We were so excited to move into our little piece of paradise! We enjoy the privacy of our cabin, and love coming here year-round. The cabin has been recently renovated, with updated amenities and everything you could possibly need. The style is modern rustic, with beautiful countertops and fireplace, vaulted ceiling, updated wood interior, and plenty of Northwoods style decorations.

Sitting in one of the calmest areas on the lake, Mumm's Bay is known for fantastic fishing. The cabin is 25' from the water, so you're constantly reminded of nature's beauty, whether cooking, dining or relaxing. A great family stay for sure!

We are so excited to welcome you to our slice of heaven!

Jason & Colette purchased this cabin in 2015

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity was everything we had hoped for and more! Beautiful cottage on gorgeous Lake Namakagon! The fishing, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding were superb. The cottage is located on Mumm's Bay, so although Lake Namakagon is large, it was very quiet at this location. The cottage was well appointed, with a fully stocked kitchen, charcoal grill, fire pit, great dock, and stunning lakefront views out the living room and kitchen windows. The open floor plan was ideal and the sandy bottom and level frontage were a plus. We hope to come again and will highly recommend it to all our family and friends!

The cabin was everything we thought it would be. Outstanding accommodations and a killer view. We really enjoyed morning coffee on the deck. Other than the mineral taste in the water our stay was perfect. Thank you.

Great location, great cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is great! The set-up is perfect for the location. 3 bedrooms with ample sleeping accommodations in the front of the house and a wide open living space that faces the lake. There are ceiling fans in every room that help with air movement for warm days. My kids loved being next to the water & they especially loved the swing set that is onsite. We rode our bikes up and down Dodd road, rented a very nice pontoon from Mogasheen Resort, paddled across the bay on the SUP, fished in Mumm's Bay (good fishing right outside the door), boated to Pla-Mor, Loon Saloon & Lakewoods for good dinners (don't bother w/ Garmisch) and had a campfire almost every night! We traveled to Cable for laundry (very nice laundromat) and enjoyed yummy treats from the Brickhouse Cafe while we waited. Rondeau's in Cable is a pretty good grocery store & the Loon Saloon also has many items for you that are very reasonably priced! We found affordable campfire wood just down the road & met a very nice gentleman. Next time we hope to explore some of the hiking trails that are nearby. You won't be disappointed.

Amazing stay at Lake Namekagon

  • 5 of 5

Jason & Colette’s lakeside home was amazing, just as pictured. Lake Namekagon was wonderful, tons of fish! A perfect weekend away with the boys. Couldn't ask for more - will be coming back in years to come, likely bringing the family!

Very Nice Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the cabin which was absolutely wonderful. Spend the entire vacation just relaxing on the property and fishing. Cabin was perfect size for my family with great set up. We enjoyed every night out in the yard with a bonfire watching the wildlife (friendly ducks who came at the same time every night to visit). Caught great fish and able to eat fresh fish two of the nights. Husband caught his biggest fish ever! Will definitely book again without hesitation. Great location to visit Cable, Bayfield, Ashland, Hayward and Apostle Islands without wasting time in the car.
