Fall is here! You’ll love our lake home (4 beedroom/2 bathroom/sleeps 13) because of the views, the location, the lake, the people, and the local ambiance. Our lakeside cabin home is great for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (and kids!), and large groups (10-13 people). Larger groups can be accommodated, please ask for more information.
You and your family or guests will have a great time here! It's a wooden wonderland, where the deer walk across the lawn in front of and behind the house. The house sits in a very nice, quiet forrest area, just 1 mile away from the small town of Hatfield, where you can buy supplies and rent boats (boat landing is just 1/4 mile away), ATV's, jet skis, kayaks and canoes. Check Arbutus Motorsports for availability (just ask for Barb or Kurt).
Just 20 minutes away is the large town of Black River Falls (population
15,000), which inspired one of Stephen King's short stories, 1922, (from his book, Full Dark, No Stars).
You and your family or guests will have a great time here! It is an unbelievable place in the summer and fall, as well as all year around. The trees turn amazing colors in the fall, and there is good fishing on the lake from the dock or 160' shoreline. The perfect place to get away from it all! Hatfield has 5 different bars/restaurants, a large campground, a roller rink and several flea markets on Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day.
There is a dock to fish from, or to tie up your pontoon boat, ski boat or fishing boat.
The 160' shoreline has a 30-foot sand and pebble beach, and swimming is great as the the lake bed is pebbles and sand.
There is a picnic table, 2 decks, a Weber Kettle and garden furniture. There is also a fire pit down by the shoreline.
Please exercise extreme caution and common sense when swimming, boating or using the house and grounds.
This is truly a great place to relax, have some fun and truly get away from it all!
You can access all areas except for some closets and the garage.
