This fabulous custom-built log cabin located right next to the beautiful Peshtigo River (only 35 feet from the bank) creates one of the most wonderful settings imaginable for a vacation retreat. It is surrounded by thousands of acres of Marinette County forest to the east and US Government land to the south, west and the north. The maze of hundreds of miles of forestry roads that serve the area are known for ATV and snowmobile fun that keep people coming back year after year. The Peshtigo River has a wonderful continuous flow that provides opportunities for rafting, canoeing and fishing at just the right pace. Have a friend drop you at the bridge on the Peshtigo River Road and float all the way to the cabin, a distance of about 5 miles. On your way, enjoy watching the deer, ducks and geese and be sure to take a fishing rod. This river is known for fabulous fishing including large brook and brown trout. The depth and speed of the water create wonderful eddies along with calm water on the back side of large rocks, great places to hook a smallmouth.
The cabin was built in about 1996 from very large pine logs. The cabin sits on the west side of the river and a wonderful deck provides a great place to sit and enjoy the sounds and sites that only a river can provide. Pools in the river are found right in front of the cabin so catching dinner is not very hard. The cabin will immediately impress you as friendly, well maintained and certainly well designed, an upper loft providing additional space for guests. Electricity is provided by a generator, and a drilled well and septic are already in place. The river will beg you to take another look every time you are in its presence. The moonlight shimmering off the ripples of the water will remind you to set your alarm for an early morning float down this peaceful ribbon of heaven found right here on earth. And when you arrive back to your retreat, your friends will wonder what you brought in this time, how many caught, how many landed and how many kept. You might be the only person on the river today, like any other day. Every time the water calls your name you are living life to its fullest. The pictures you take will never match what your mind’s eye has captured when experiencing a river like the Peshtigo.
The hunting here is also very good. Deer and turkeys, bear, bobcat, coyote make their home in these woods. Think about how old and how large a buck can get in woods that are this immense. Ducks and geese are here from early spring until late fall, right through the time of the fall migration of northern waterfowl and woodcock. Pass-shooting can be a hoot for beginners or experienced hunters. There are thousands of acres of public land in all directions. Since so much of the entire region is owned by the county or the federal government, owning just a few acres is like owning thousands. You won’t find many homes or cabins in the area, just lakes, rivers and lots of land to explore.
