About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 16 comfortably with beds in loft.

Indoor gas fireplace, 2 satellite televisions, telephone, microwave, fully equipped kitchen, board games, gas grill, washer and dryer, dock at river, two fire pits, firewood, cedar lawn and deck furniture. High speed wireless internet.

Private maintained road access to ATV and snowmobile trails. Swimming, golfing, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and hunting. Nearby Wolf River rafting, Ed's Lake and Hemlock cross country ski trails, Mole Lake Casino and Potawatomi Casino.

2800 sq. ft of gravel parking area for RV's and trailers in addition to the long, wide drive for easy turn-around. Ideal for ATVers and snowmobilers.

Winter up north.: Young children enjoy sledding on small hill on the property. Watch them from the porch.

Access the Wolf River Snowmobile Trail 1/2 mile on private road or the Lumberjack Memorial Snowmobile Trail 1 mile on Woodlawn Road. These connect to the Tombstone Pickerel trails to the south, and the 100 Mile Snow Safari to the north.

The private road, driveway and parking area are plowed throughout the snow season.

Enjoy cross country skiing at nearby Ed's Lake or Hemlock Lake. The trails have a nice variety of hills through the forest.

Take a young family downhill skiing at Kettlebowl, in Bryant, a 30 minute drive. This is a low cost family oriented ski hill. An hour's drive will get you to Ski Brule, in Brule, Michigan.

Enjoy the water.: Canoe or kayak a short distance from property to Lily Lake (early spring/summer). Paddle the lake or continue on the Lily River outlet to newly opened Frog Alley Inn and Campground (45 minute paddle there). This is a very quiet trip.

Trailer an available 12 foot row boat (with motor) to any number of nearby lakes: Jungle Lake, Lake Pickerel, Bog Brook flowage, Robert's Lake, or to the Lily Lake Landing.

Those looking for a sandy bottom may enjoy Lake Metonga or Crystal Lake. These lakes are a 15 - 20 minute drive away.

Excerpts from our guest book.: 'What a wonderful place! Every morning waking up to the calls of the loons on the lake, the stream running, and the birds chirping!'

'The cabin is lovely! From the moment we walked in the door, we knew we were going to have a good time, and we did. Kayaking and swimming were a blast. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. It was nice that everything was fully stocked and very clean

'All the comforts of home. Plenty of room for everyone, inside and out. Great place for tween and teenaged kids. They loved exploring, finding lots of frogs at the river. We all enjoyed kayaking and canoeing. The swing by the river was a big hit for the kids. The hammock by the house was enjoyed by everyone of all ages.'

'Your cabin far exceeded our expectations'

The Schumacher cabin is top shelf!

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as advertised and much more. It is an awesome get away that accommodates either summer or summer guests. It is clean, well maintained, and fully stocked...all you need is clothing, food and beverage. Trails are right there for your ATVs and Snowmobiling enjoyment in winter. In summer there is access to the river and lake for kayaks and canoes, also provided, I might add. All information and directions were clear, concise and surprises. The owners were gracious and accommodating, with prompt and clear communication. We and our family of families, 12 of us in all, thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay. We want to return and certainly recommend this well thought out, and well maintained, property to friends and relatives alike. Enjoy!!

perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

Three couples spent an awesome time snowmobiling. Amazing the space that is available. Each couple had their own floor for sleeping arrangements, yet room for 20 if needed. Schumacher's definitely do all they can to help the accommodations. Cabin is well stocked and does not need much more to bring than food and beverage. Location is perfect just off the snowmobile trail, yet back in a secluded piece of the world all by itself. Highly recommend to friends and family looking for a get away location.

One of the best VRBO places we have stayed

  • 5 of 5

Very impressive home and furnishings. Everything was top shelf from the decorations to the dishes to the towels. We were a group of 10 snowmobilers and to have an area to pull in, back up and park two 4 place trailers and a 2 place trailer and be able to park 10 sleds with room to spare is priceless. The sled trails are close. Places to get gas, food and drink are all close. Many of us snow loving folks talked all week about coming back during the summer months as this place is just that amazing. The Schumacher's are so easy to deal with there is just nothing that could have made it any better.

By the way, we arrived during a significant snow storm and had a difficult time traveling and actually was "breaking trail" in 9 inches or more of snow to get there. We had to unload the sleds to pack down the road good enough for us to get the trucks and trailer to the cabin only because we came in during the storm and plows were not out yet. Didn't get to lay our heads down until nearly 330 AM due to the weather. Once inside this amazing place all of our challenges we face were quickly erased it was that nice. Thanks David and Brenda Schumacher.

Perfect Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We take a trip once a year to unplug and escape the Chicago city noise. This was by far the best place we've ever found. Dave, the owner, is great to work with. The cabin had everything we needed; full kitchen, comfort, great outdoor space. We wanted complete relaxation and we got it. The grounds are quiet and secluded. Perfect for a group of friends or family; you can definitely have your entire group sleep comfortably. Thanks Dave!

Everything I expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

A large group of us take a trip up north every year and our group keeps getting bigger and bigger. We found this cabin and it looked and sounded to good to be true. But with 15 people it was our best option. The owner Dave is amazing to work with and very realistic. Well we got there and the pictures probably don't even do this place justice. It is incredible! Very secluded, beautiful cabin, beautiful property. Abundance of sleeping area, two fridges and wifi is pretty darn good. We were actually able to play xbox online. Can hear the creek from the cabin, beautiful fire pit/Fireplace and really the place has everything you could ask for. Great place for friends, family, and children. Would not be surprised if I try to rent with family and enjoy it in the summer. If you rent you will not be disappointed!
