SOLD Wascott WI lake property with enormous pole building, more

This versatile lake property includes an 80 x 40 pole building and an attached, fully insulated 30 x 30 cabin that could also make a great office space.  The four-season cabin has in-floor heating and a wood stove, and a smaller guest cabin has a wood stove of its own.


This 5.5-acre waterfront property is nicely landscaped with fun areas for outdoor entertaining, and near the existing structure there’s plenty of room to build your dream home and then use the current cabin(s) for guests.  Or, use the main cabin as a roomy office adjacent to your home business.  The cavernous pole building has room for RVs, boats, storage, and an amazing workshop.
This is your chance to own 400’ of frontage in a quiet, secluded bay on the narrows between Cranberry Lake and the Minong Flowage.  Boat to either lake for 1700+ acres of fishing & boating fun.  Want more water?  A small creek also runs through this property, attracting abundant wildlife to your 5.5 acres of privacy, woods, and trails.  The property borders paper company and county land.

Boating channel between Cranberry Lake and Minong Flowage- NW Wisconsin’s most popular recreation and fishing lakes

Boating channel between Cranberry Lake and Minong Flowage – NW Wisconsin’s most popular recreation and fishing lakes

The Minong Flowage is a 1,564-acre impoundment of the Totagatic River created by a dam completed in 1937.  Most of its bottom is sand; its maximum and mean depths are 21’ and 9’.  Although much of the Flowage is deep, open water, some of its shallow bays contain tree stumps and aquatic vegetation.  The fishery consists mainly of walleye, northern pike, largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, and yellow perch.  The Flowage is also popular for boating, waterskiing, and paddling.

Cranberry Lake is a 172-acre lake with 2.76 miles of shoreline. It has a maximum depth of 19 feet and a mean depth of 11 feet. Its littoral bottom is 95% sand and 5% muck. According to the DNR, you’ll find numerous northern pike, walleye, largemouth bass, and panfish. Cranberry Lake is connected to the Minong Flowage by the Cranberry Narrows, a stretch of water that’s passable by small and medium-sized boats. The bridge at Highway T has enough clearance for fishing boats and most pontoons. Once you’re under the bridge, you’ll find yourself in the Minong Flowage.

On the other hand, you can also go for a boat ride, dock at restaurant, and then after dinner motor home as the moon rises over the Minong Flowage.  Here, you really can have the best of both worlds.

A Closer Look at Cranberry Lake

A Closer Look at Cranberry Lake
To follow up on my previous post, here’s a bit more info on Cranberry Lake. This 172-acre lake is connected by a navigable channel to the much larger Minong Flowage, and elsewhere on my website I’ve described the Minong Flowage and Cranberry Lake together as one body of water.


Most fishing boats and runabouts can easily make it under the bridge at County Road T. This means that, depending on your boat, owning a lake home or cabin on Cranberry Lake could also give you easy access to the 1,564 acre Minong Flowage.
Cranberry Lake itself has a shoreline of 2.76 miles, a maximum depth of 19’ and a mean depth of 11’. It’s a clear-water lake with a bottom that’s 95% sand. According to the DNR, it’s home to northern pike, walleye, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, crappies, and bluegills.

Want to Live on Madison Avenue?

Want to Live on Madison Avenue?

No, not the Madison Avenue in New York City. I’m not talking about the NYC street that’s associated with the advertising industry and referenced in the title of the TV series Mad Men. No, saner men and women would much rather live here in northern Wisconsin.

And if you’re not fortunate enough to live here year-round, it’s a great place for a cabin where you can escape the big city and cool off up at the lake. That’s why I’d especially like to let you know about two lots I’ve just listed on Madison Avenue. That’s the Madison Avenue in Wascott, Wisconsin that runs along the lower west side—the lower west side of Cranberry Lake, that is. Both are about 3.5 acres with approximately 109’ and 130′ of frontage, and both have great views of the lake. To learn more, please visit Jean Hedren, Edina Realty website.

Lots 10 and 11 Madison Ave, Wascott, WI. Listed at $85,000 per lot.
