Some other stuff.

Yeah sure, you have the best mountain biking in the Midwest right out your door when staying at the cabin, but why not take the canoe out on the river after a long ride?

The Cabin Itself

Taking possession a few years back. The cabin on the left, the huge shed on the right.

This is of one of the corners in the upstairs loft area. I can't find more pics at the moment for the upstairs.

Living room, yes the trim is done on the door now.

Living room, looking into the bedroom on the main floor. The bedroom now is finished off the same way as the living room and loft area.

And, the living room again.

Living room, looking towards the kitchen.

Having fun at the cabin pics!

This is right behind the cabin , leading to the Esker trail. This is a great place for hiking, mountain biking, and snowshoeing. All out the door. No driving needed.

The infamous Cable albino deer. It is rare to see it. We only have this once.

Out on a hike, absorbing just one of the many, many lakes up there.

Enjoying the view from one of the many nearby hikes.

Another adventure right out the door.

Eating lunch on the deck, looking for bears, deer, foxes, bobcats, bald eagles, and wolves.

A little wilderness on the river.

A little MORE wilderness on the river.

Off to go canoeing, right out the door.

Off for a hike behind the cabin.

How to get there.

View Larger Map

What do you need to do when you go.

So you rented the cabin, here is the deal.

The water heater is turned off. It is located in the basement, controlled at the circuit breaker to the left of the bottom of the stairs. It is well marked and very easy to turn off. Please turn it off when you leave.

The heat is set at 45 degrees. The thermostat is next to the TV in the living room. Use it as needed, but please turn it back down/turn AC off when done.

All the beds are full size.  You might want to bring your own sheets, making clean up easier.

Leave the cabin as you found it. That is please pick up after yourself and clean.

Trash. There is a garbage dump just down the road, 1/4 mile at most. They are open Wed and Sat mornings, cost is about $2 a bag. Please haul out your trash with you. If you do not have room for this, ask me about an alternative.

Fall time

Now is one of the best times to spend a weekend "Up North". Incredible fall colors dominate the scenery, and cool crisp temps make the outdoors a fun place get active without so drenching yourself in sweat. The deck offers a great viewing area to look for local wildlife including the occasional black bear. The bears are amazing to see in the wild, but they can be hard to find as they typically run away scared at any signs of humans.

So, imagine the cool air and vivid autumn colors while you hike to one of the nearby falls, or take in another amazing mountain bike ride. Maybe enjoy the sun setting as you watch for bears out on the deck. Anyway you look at it, time spent "Up North" is a workout for your pleasure senses.


"The cabin was a perfect base for a great weekend away. The woodpecker even held off its work until we were awake."

"I've stayed at Charly's place and will give it a thumbs-up. I, personally, like to get away from bustle and BS when I head "up north" and Hayward seems to have a lot of people there most day, so I'd rather stay near Cable and head back to Hayward, if necessary. Charly's place is in a great location for riding out from the "cabin" and it's a fully functional house, so you have all the necessities to be comfortable. It's not a huge, fancy lodge or anything.. just a quiet, comfortable place about as close to Telemark as you can get without owning a Town home. "

Spring is coming.

Cable, WI is going through their spring thaw now. Soon comes the summer outdoor activities that can all be started within 1/4 mile or less from the cabin. Mountain biking, road biking, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, bird watching, fishing, and just plain enjoying the outdoors in the summer are almost here.

This picture was taken on the Namakagon River, 1/4 mile from the cabin.

Dates are starting to fill, e-mail if interested in staying in Augie's Cabin.
