About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths on Balsam Lake, WI

Welcome to Worries End! Our family cabin is a short drive from the Twin Cities and is the perfect place to relax for a summer or winter vacation.

Our cabin was built in 2016 and offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a good sized basement family room, sitting room with a fireplace and a porch just steps from the lake. There is a queen bed, a full size bed and a bunk room that offers 2 full beds, a twin and a full trundle. It has all the conveniences of home. Outside there is a flat lawn on the lakeside and 2 docks that provide fantastic swimming and fishing.

Balsam Lake Wisconsin is a premier vacation location. It is 25 minutes from St Croix Falls and about 75 minutes from the Twin Cities. The lake is 2000+ acres with great fishing and water fun. The local Marina (Sunnyside Marine) has boats, pontoons and other water toys to rent. There are 2 restaurants that you can boat to on the lake and countless other great eating spots within 20 minutes of the property. Turtle Lake Casino, Wild Mountain, Trollhaugen and Taylors Falls are all about a 25 minute drive from the property and offer many fun activities. For the winter enthusiasts, the lake is great for ice fishing and the Gandy Dancer Snowmobile trail is right there.

About Scott Whitehead

We purchased this property in 2014 because its wonderful location close to the Twin Cities, its south facing exposure and the fact that the property is flat to the lake. We love the Balsam Lake area with its lakes, shops and restaurants. We are a very active family and there are many fun activities for all of us, while still providing a wonderful opportunity for rest and relaxation from our busy lives.

Perfect Family Vacation Spot - New Cabin on Balsam Lake

Glenwood City, Wisconsin

Beautiful lakeside home with all the comforts of your own home.

  • 5 of 5

Our three generation family group had a wonderful time. The house was beautiful and spacious. Everything was clean and well organized. The setting on Balsam Lake was beautiful and peaceful. Fishing from the docks was easy to do with our fishermen/women catching plenty of panfish (sunfish and crappies) and even a couple of good sized bass! When we had a question about how to dispose of trash, our hosts responded within minutes. They were very easy to work with. We would stay here again, and again, and ....well, you get my drift. Thanks for opening your home to our family.

Much needed family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is magnificent, from the open main floor layout to the splendid view from any window. The home is located right on Balsam Lake, nestled snug in the forest among tall pines and oak trees. This place is perfection from the newly updated appliances, screened in porch and open deck, comfortable bedding and rich, rustic decor. My father in law spent an entire day fishing on the dock, catching several bluegill "bigger than he had ever caught before". I spent the daylight hours writing with the gorgeous view of the lake, while my husband and kids spent the day fishing. Our young adult children reminisced and talked until the wee hours in the bunk room with two full and one twin bunk bed., after spending the evenings on the porch and enjoying a movie on the large screen tv in the basement. We were very comfortable with 5 adults, but could have made room for a few more with ease. We look forward to another visit someday soon.
