There is not another cabin or home in sight from this 5.4 acre High Falls area cabin for sale northwest of Crivitz, Wisconsin. You'll be amazed when you pop out from this cabin's tree-lined driveway onto a paved dead-end road, and find yourself in the heart of Marinette County's popular High Falls and Caldron Falls recreational area.
Offering fishing, boating and swimming, Caldron Falls Reservoir (1000 acres) and High Falls Reservoir (1500 acres) are the two main draws to the area. For anyone not familiar with these two Peshtigo River reservoirs, these two lakes have mostly undeveloped shore that is protected from development by Wisconsin’s newest state park and state forest. Nearby to the property, and on Caldron Falls Flowage, is Governor Thompson State park, a 2800 acre mix of forest, lakes and trails. Surrounding the entire area, and on Caldron Falls, High Falls, and the Peshtigo River is the Peshtigo River State Forest. The Peshtigo River State Forest has 25 miles of shorefront covering 3,200 acres of water, with 9,200 acres of forest lands.
The location of this cabin property, in the center of these surrounding recreational waters and lands, offers hunting, fishing, swimming, ATVing, snowmobiling, boating, canoeing, kayaking, snowshoeing and hiking, all direct from your land. It's no wonder that the owners are only reluctantly putting this property on the market after 45 years of happy ownership.
The secluded, one-room, vintage cabin from the 70's is tight, buttoned up, and well built. Bright, white interior walls with eight and a half foot ceilings make it light and cheery inside. (It even smells fine inside, not musty, or of old, stale cigarette smoke.) A storage closet, a changing room, and a little corner kitchen complete the interior. Screened windows and door provide a pleasant cross draft on warm summer days, and practical baseboard electric heat provides warmth to enjoy the cabin on fall and winter weekends.
Clad in vinyl, this cabin is easy to maintain, and easy to open up at the start of your vacation, and easy to shut down at the end of your vacation. A grandfathered privy, electricity in the cabin, and a sand-point water well provide the necessities for enjoying camp. If you want a classic, "up north" Wisconsin cabin -- maybe like the cottage you visited as a kid -- this is it.
The land is wooded with mixed woods of pines and oaks, and is not logged over. A couple of the oak trees are ready to be cut and used in the fire ring, and the majority of the oak have been spared the blight that has hit much of northern Wisconsin. The topography is gently rolling with all contours leading to the west, where the property overlooks a neighboring lowlands area with Handsaw Creek.
Between the location of the 5.4 acres, along with the way the neighboring properties lay out, there is easily enough room for a couple of deer hunters during Wisconsin's Whitetail gun season. This property would also be great for a bow-hunter that wants property to use year round for other types of northern recreation. Just off the property there is the stream and low land area for reliable water and cover for deer and wildlife. A farm adjoins to the north.
The cabin acreage is made up of four lots under one tax bill for affordability. You could keep the cabin and build another home or cottage on any of the other lots, or sell one of the lots to that friend or family member who has been pestering you to go in on property together.
A two-track driveway follows the power about six hundred feet back into the property. It is no small expense to run the power with a transformer, and a driveway, this far in from the road. The cabin is built on a little knoll overlooking the creek bottoms to the west. There is not another cabin or cottage in sight. If you want to wake up in the morning and have a cup of coffee while sitting in your skivvies this is the property for you.
This is an absolutely new listing, and the first time this property has been available in 45 years.
