Growing up I spent my summers at my family’s lake house in Three Lakes, Wisconsin. It was our go-to place to stay for most of my life. Several years ago my family sold the house and ever since I’ve been enjoying exploring new places in Wisconsin (and all over). Here are a few of the “new” places we’ve found.
Eco-Friendly Log Cabin – Minocqua Area
Located on quiet Lehto Lake about 45 minutes from Minocqua we were attracted to this “eco-friendly” house because of it’s beauty. The house is hand-crafted by the owner and is a full solar powered cabin and is simply beautiful. If you are looking for a secluded getaway this is the place. The house is one mile from the road surrounded by the forest. Lehto lake has only a handful of houses on it so everything is just very quiet and private. Great place for stargazing.
Murph’s Hideaway – De Soto, Wisconsin
Exploring Southwest Wisconsin was a new one for me (see A Hidden Gem in Southwest Wisconsin for the full story). Murph’s Hideaway is located in De Soto, Wisconsin on a bluff that overlooks the Mississippi River. The home is a quaint log cabin on a large open setting with no sign of neighbors for as far as the eye can see. The town of De Soto is located at the bottom of the bluff, though there is not much to see or do in town. The house location is great for taking long walks. At the top of the road is a beautiful old barn and past that are rolling farm fields. The fields, combined with the terrain of the bluffs make it for a beautiful fall getaway. Not a whole lot to do except take in some nature. Photos – Wisconsin in Fall
