Charming, rustic, private getaway

  • 5 of 5

An old family cabin perched above a pristine lake, at the very edge of a national forest. Just 20 minutes from town, but in another world. Loons, deer, fish, and a fireplace. What else do you need?

Owner is very responsive to your needs.

Quite a gem

  • 5 of 5

Loved this quite, cozy and peaceful cabin. Has a great kitchen for making meals and very comfortable overall. Access to the Lake was great and hiking/biking trails abound within 20 minutes. Great place to "unplug" for an extended period of time.

Perfect cabin setting!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four plus our pup enjoyed vacation at the "Little Cabin" from 6/18-6/24 and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The cabin was incredibly charming, clean and comfy! Loved the fireplace, as we had a couple of chilly nights and needed to warm up a bit. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked with anything we needed for the many meals we prepared, including fish we caught throughout our stay. We were happy with all of the bedding, pillows and extra blankets provided, as well as the towels provided. Although we didn't have much luck fishing on Franklin Lake, we did on Kentuck and Anvil Lakes, which were all within 5-10 miles from our cabin. Having our own private pier came in handy for casting or just enjoying the sunshine and our pup enjoyed the daily swims. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a quiet, secluded and comfy vacation. One side note is that there is little to no cell service (which I absolutely loved), but our teenaged kids found that if they sat on the pier, they were able to get a signal. Thank you Katharine for the wonderful accommodations!

If you want privacy and quiet and a classic Northwoods experience, this place is terrific. Small, but for a couple or a small family it's great.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the best of times at this perfect cozy retreat. Kat was the perfect host, welcomed us with a bottle of delicious Pinot and Wisconsin cranberry cheddar. We were really sad to leave sunday afternoon. We strongly recommend this place for any couple looking to have a great weekend away from it all. Will certainly look at re-booking in the future.
