About thomas

I, Tom (Dr Cheese), am a retired, third-generation cheesemaker from central Wisconsin, earning my PhD from the Department of Food Science at UW-Madison. My career was devoted in it's entirety to the art of cheesemaking, specifically research and quality control for local Wisconsin companies. Hence the photo of the wood burning oven which is a feature in our cabin where my wife, Karen, and I pursue our hobby of pizza making and wood-oven delicacies when our friends and family gather - the cabin then is humorously referred to as 'PIZZA AND PAD' ! Karen and I have been bringing our family up to the northwoods area to vacation for years and years so it was without hesitation that we chose this area to retire. Now we are blessed to spend all of our time in the splendor of the four seasons here northern Wisconsin. We feel especially blessed to be able to share Birchwood with guests.

Why thomas chose Northern Wisconsin

Relaxing and enjoying the serenity of the north after a long day of fishing and swimming is what you will experience here at the Everson's cabin. However, you do not have to be a fisherman to enjoy our area. The Manitowish Waters (MW) community flourishes with activities all year around. The community park offers seasonal 'Music in the Park' on Sundays; and many guests take in the local water skiers shows on nearby Rest Lake (accessible by auto or boat). Multiple wonderful restaurants are available closeby - also by auto or boat. The MW Discovery Center offers opportunities for informative and educational sessions on subjects of nature. Available on the grounds of the Center are walking and hiking, kayaking and canoeing, etc. There are miles of beautifully paved and safe navigating bike trails very near our cabin that traverse users into beautiful northwoods scenery and along picturesque roadways. For flea market enthusiasts, seasonal Thursday mornings the MW Lions/Lioness offer a 'shopping experience' of multiple crafts and great vegetables and produce from all over Central Wisconsin. The flea market is located less than three miles from Birchwood. Also available is nearby grocery stores that can supply your every vacation need. We have fine shopping in gift/home decorating boutiques right in the community. For reading enthusiast, our community library is closeby and offers a full library selection of reading materials. Two airports are available - MW airport is three miles away and we offer transportation to and from; the Rhinelander airport is an hour away and a shuttle service is available to and from there.

What makes this cabin unique

Uniqueness of our vacation spot provides our guests with a quiet and serene getaway, campfire chats, constellation views from the pier, sunrises and sunsets, a good book or a long nap on the shaded hammock. Come and enjoy!

Clean, efficient, well prepared and greeted with a homemade cookie. Could you find any place in Northern Wisconsin during the busiest months of the year more appealing? I doubt it. Tom and Karen are the sweetest and most generous hosts. Fishing was great. Enjoy your stay.
