Welcome to our family retreat! Two new cabins...with a history! Construction completed in 2019, built within the original 1920 cabin footprints less than 10 feet from shoreline! Family owned since 1947.
Dream of staying in a brand-new handcrafted shoreline cabin? On an undeveloped, protected northern Wisconsin lake? Fish, kayak, boat on a lake where the only splash is a diving bird or fish jumping…not jet skiers or people jumping in the water? Toss wood on a bonfire, enjoy a beverage and pizza in a clean, up-north bar? Experience the comforts of today, while stepping back a few decades in time and into the history of our family and the Northwoods…then you’ve come to the right place!
Beautifully built by local talent using only local cedar, oak, pine and stone. Our cabins sit less than 10’ from the Wabikon Lake shoreline. Furnished with new appliances, a fully stocked kitchen, new mattresses, living room furniture, carefully selected décor and handmade quilts. Private decks offer stunning sunrises, daytime relaxation and serene nights for contemplating moon phases and finding constellations under pure night skies without city lights.
Wabikon & Riley Lakes offer a most desirable quality of this property; their shorelines are fully undeveloped, protected. The Chequamegon/Nicolet Forest and the Wabikon State Natural Area are your immediate neighbor offering endless exploration of water and forest. Directly to off the western shoreline is the Wabikon Forest Plot. This unique tract is one of only six in the world (!) being studied by the Smithsonian Institute for its natural growth. This global network of forest research plots is committed to the study of tropical and temperate forest function and diversity.

A bit of history:
This special piece of lakeshore is our family legacy, established in 1947 by our parents, John and June Aschenbrenner. Their lease included 9 tiny cabins, 5 outhouses, a bar and caretaker’s shack…a small generator, hand-pump well, and a couple of gas lights. They closed after deer season and re-opened each May 1 which was “opening day” for fishing back then. Johnnie and I grew up on the lake and attended Laona schools. Until our parents’ deaths, Johnnie and Cheryl ran the business making vast improvements; recently we split the land so they could keep the business and we could rebuild two cabins for our family retreat. We carefully rebuilt the cabins in the footprint of 3 old cabins built in the 1920’s.
Far from the craziness of heightened tourism, we are nested in a quiet corner of northeastern Wisconsin. So come to relax, fish, and explore nature on lake and water. [Our two cabins are next to Johnnie’s which includes one cabin from the 1950’s, a small bar and a rental home. Together we are the only four buildings on the entire lake.
A large grocery store and gift shops are 5 miles away in Crandon. From your private cottage, you can explore the county's attractions, such as the Lumberjack Steam Train & Camp Five Museum in Laona, the Nicolet Golf Course, the Crandon International Off-Road Raceway, local, Forest County community holiday parades and events. The Crandon Ski Serpents perform water ski shows weekly. Sand beaches are available to you 5 miles to the east (Silver Lake Beach) or to the west (Lake Metonga Beach). You'll find mountain biking trails, birding and nature walks, scenic and rustic backroads and ATV/snowmobiling trails.
