BARK POINT CABIN On Lake Superior!
Hidden from view, this octagonal, log-sided Lake Superior cabin springs up from the forest floor on hand-carved, wooden footings (anchored by 4’ concrete sonic tubes). One room with a sleeping loft, this totally furnished cabin offers all that you need from Spring through Autumn. Its octagonal shape centers the interior space. With no dead ends, the energy here is constantly flowing around you.
The seller has designed this cabin thoughtfully and tastefully. Inside you’ll find an oak floor, log rafters, a sleeping loft with peek-a-boo windows in all directions and 384 sq. ft. of living space divided into dining, kitchen and lounging areas. Tall lake lodge windows with transoms have been refurbished and installed – enjoy beautiful woodland views in all directions. Because the home has many windows – the great outdoors naturally creeps into it. You feel a part of the outside, of what surrounds you – the weather’s many faces and the lives of plants and animals are just outside your door. What is without becomes within at this little cabin on the Big Lake.
The cabin is heated with a wood stove and an electric wall heater. A rain barrel filter system provides wash water. An ingenious surprise is the private, outdoor washing area convenient to the rain barrel water source. The wash area includes a solar shower set-up. The seller brings in drinking water from a public artesian well in Cornucopia about 7 miles away. There is an adorable master privy with an up-to-code vaulted tank. The privy has a sod roof and a hideaway storage closet.
Woodland lush, the 1.73-acre setting explodes with daffodils in the Spring and sways with ferns in the summer. Situated on high ground, the views of Lake Superior are expansive and memorable. The sunsets are dramatic. The starlight twinkles in the clear atmosphere, and the northern lights trumpet across the sky dome.
There is a stairway leading to the 233 feet of lake frontage – the best you can find – white sand beach and gradual depth. There is Mediterranean beauty here with the contrast of white sand and the aquamarine hues of Lake Superior.
The seller has flagged a building corridor, where, with a zoning variance from Bayfield County, you may be able to add on or possibly build new.
BUT – this cabin already has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Here is a Light Foot Print – a Green Start. Indulge your naturalist tendencies and enjoy kayaking, hiking, swimming, birding and biking along Bark Point and Bark Bay on the Quiet Side of The Bayfield Peninsula.
Amenities in Cornucopia include a public beach, gas, groceries, restaurants and fresh Lake Superior trout, salmon and white fish from the local fishery. Washburn, Bayfield and the Apostle Islands are about 1/2 hour away and offer organic produce, orchard fruits, recreation and fine dining. Closer to the cabin is the quaint village of Herbster with a public beach and landing. The Bark Bay boat landing is only 1/2 mile up the point from this property. The cabin’s convenient location is a big plus.
