Buying a lake cabin – your ideal cabin style

What is the style of home or cabin that would be fit your needs. In Northwestern


Wisconsin, we have 3-season and 4-season homes. If you are not a winter recreation enthusiast, then you might not plan to use your home during the winter months. Many of the older cabins are not well insulated and would only be used from Memorial weekend to Labor Day weekend. Newer homes and cabins are built with good insulation and are ready to be enjoyed all year round.

Is your ideal lake home a new chalet with a great room? The chalet lake home with beautiful wood interiors and exteriors is a very common site around many lakes. Those homes will likely come with a larger price tag. If you want all the comforts of home and a maintenance-free home while enjoying your weekend at the lake, this would be a good choice for you.

Perhaps you are handy and enjoy the challenge of restoring or remodeling an older home or cabin. There are many bargain homes and cabins available if that’s your motivation. You can purchase a structurally sound cabin and spend many enjoyable hours adding new siding or updating the interior. You’ll want to make sure the well and septic are still in good condition if the home is much older, and if that’s something that also needs updating, then the price would reflect that.

If there is a particular lake you want to be on because it’s large and has just the right kind of fish, and you are willing to find a home or cabin that needs some work, then you’ll look for the distressed properties and motivated sellers.

Want to simply enjoy your time away from the stresses of work and busy life? Looking for that up north chalet that’s move-in ready and doesn’t need a thing done to it? You’ll be looking for a newer chalet or newly remodeled and updated lake home. Maintenance-free. Just bring the swimming suits and jump in.

No matter your lake lifestyle, you’ll find the right property.

Homes and cabins on the Eau Claire Chain of Lakes, Gordon and Barnes Wisconsin

The Eau Claire chain includes Lower, Middle, and Upper Eau Claire, plus a few smaller lakes of 80-200 acres that are accessible by smaller boats at most water levels.  These include Bony, Pickerel, Robinson, Birch, Schunenberg, Smith, and Sweet.  From Lower Eau Claire, the Eau Claire River flows westward, passing just south of Eau Claire Acres.  Farther downstream, it joins the Saint Croix at Gordon.

The lakes in the Eau Claire chain tend to be deeper and clearer than most lakes in the area.  (Eau Claire, as you may have guessed, is French for “Clear Water.”)  In them, you’ll find muskies, walleye, northern pike, largemouth and smallmouth bass, crappies, bluegills, and perch.  Here are some vital statistics for the three largest lakes:

·      Lower Eau Claire: 802 acres, 7.78 miles of shoreline, maximum depth 41’, 56% greater than 20’ deep, and 4% less than 3’ deep.

·      Middle Eau Claire: 902 acres, 11 miles of shoreline, maximum depth 66’, 40% greater than 20’ deep, and 12% less than 3’ deep.

·      Upper Eau Claire: 992 acres, 9.93 miles of shoreline, maximum depth 92’, 50% greater than 20’ deep, and 4% less than 3’ deep.

More About the Area

Located in the heart of a recreational paradise.  In addition to the Eau Claire river and chain of lakes, you’ll be close to dozens of other lakes and streams that are great for fishing, boating, paddling, and waterfowling.  You’re just minutes from the Brule, the Namekagon, and the Saint Croix Wild and Scenic Riverway.

Nearby, you’ll find trails for ATVing, snowmobiling, biking, hiking, and skiing.  The area is great for both road and mountain biking, and is home to events like the American Birkebeiner and Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival.  You’ll be surrounded by vast areas of public and paper company land that’s open to hunting, hiking, birding, and other recreation.

You can shop for essentials in nearby Barnes, Gordon, or Solon Springs; it’s not much farther to Cable, Hayward, Drummond, or Ashland.  It’s about an hour to Superior or Duluth, and about 2 ½ hours to the Twin Cities.
