Nature Lover’s Dream. This immaculate home in the heart of the national forest has all the unique character of a rustic log cabin with more contemporary features of design, quality, and convenience. Set on the most secluded end of a quiet lake with no public access and surrounded by undeveloped acreage, you will share this property with nearly every species of northern Wisconsin wildlife. Need even more room to wander? Within five miles you can explore seven more lakes, several great trout streams, the North Country Trail, and a federally designated wilderness area. And still be home in time for dinner and a soak in the outdoor hot tub with a glass of wine and the call of loons echoing across the lake.

This well-insulated log home features one bedroom and one full bath on the main level and a second bedroom and full bath on the lower walkout level. The open design of the main living area with cathedral ceiling, log rafters, and striking wide plank floors flows from a spacious great room with wood stove, into an inviting kitchen/dining area, and outside to a screened porch and adjoining deck overlooking the lake. The large upper level loft currently serves an an office (complete with high speed Internet) but also could be used as an additional sleeping area or playroom. The lower walkout level incorporates a separate sitting area with gas log fireplace.

The 1.8 acre property includes approximately 440 feet of water frontage wrapping around on two sides from the west end of Trapper Lake to Jackson Creek, a pretty outlet stream. At 84 acres and a maximum depth of 31 feet, Trapper Lake supports northern, walleye, largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie and a host of riparian wildlife species including nesting waterfowl.

Enjoy your privacy but also the occasional guest? You’re gonna love the bonus three season guest cottage located a few steps away from the main house. Currently configured as a one bedroom with large kitchen, the latter space easily could be converted to a second bedroom if you’d prefer to have your guests join you for meals in the main house.

Despite your sense of being off the beaten path, you’ll find comfort in knowing this tranquil property is accessed by a well-maintained town road, plowed early and often as a designated school bus route. Just 20 minutes from Cable, the location also has the advantage of being equidistant between the larger towns of Hayward and Ashland with their wider selection of retail, medical, and other services within 40 minutes in either direction.

This peaceful haven for aspiring naturalists and silent sports enthusiasts is priced to sell at $399,500.
