NW Wisconsin North Country Hiking Trail: Bird Sanctuary Clubhouse to Highway 53 Trailhead

We are so fortunate to have The North Country Hiking Trail right in our back yard (well almost). The North Country Trail stretches from New York to North Dakota with hundreds of miles crossing Northern Wisconsin.

This 3.3 mile segment of the North Country Scenic Trail is right here in the Gordon-Solon Springs area. Because it traverses relatively open terrain, this segment is a good place to enjoy the vista. Near the north end of the route, there’s also a nice walk-in campsite overlooking Leo Creek.

Accepted offer: 1926 eclectic-style lake cottage. Upper Lake St Croix, Solon Springs, WI

Here’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase this 1926 eclectic-style cottage with hip roof built by Joe Lucius. This spacious and elegant cottage is located on Upper Lake St Croix at 9299 E Nelson Ave, Solon Springs, WI.
Offered at $299,000. Now with accepted offer.

Massive stone fireplace is the focal point in the large open livingroom with a second-level, three-sided balcony surround, and this hanging balcony is like no other. Family and friends gather in the amazing three-sided porch for lake or star gazing. Four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, including antique sitz bath. Located on large village lot with approx. 90’ of level lake frontage.

You might call it a cottage, because back in 1926 it was built as a summer place and not as a primary residence.  But it’s not your ordinary cabin up at the lake.  It was built by Joseph Lucius, a canoe builder, contractor, and noteworthy local citizen who in 1905 was profiled in the Commemorative Biographical Record of the Upper Lake Region.  A few excerpts: “…Since then he has lived on the Brule River, where he kept a summer resort for several years… Most of the buildings and boats on that romantic and historic stream have been built by Mr. Lucius… He is a contractor and employs a number of men… Mr. Lucius’ own residence, commenced in 1902, is an ideal rustic home, furnished both inside and outside with natural cedar.  This, as well as the club houses he has built, is fitted with water works and other modern conveniences… Mr. Lucius is a man held in great respect by all who know him, and the trust reposed in him has always been amply justified.”

If you would like to schedule a showing of this unique property, contact Jean Hedren, NW Wisconsin Realtor.  She’s at (218) 590-6634 or jeanhedren@edinarealty.com.

 

An Artesian Well in Winter (Solon Springs, WI)

This local Solon Springs landmark is located at a boat landing near the north end of Upper Saint Croix Lake. It’s an artesian well that flows constantly, all year round. People often stop here to fill their water jugs with delicious springwater that’s just as icy cold and refreshing in July as it is in January. If you’re hot and thirsty, but nowhere near Solon Springs right now, you can at least settle back and watch the video for a moment.
