Holiday Rental House
Classic Northwood's log cabin sitting on 52 acres of beautiful wooded property on Pine Island. This rustically beautiful cabin has four bedrooms, two lofts, 1 bathroom, screened in front porch, family room, living room, sauna, deck, and fireplace. The cabin has a rich heritage and history as it has been in the same family for more than 80 years. If you are looking for a remote, relaxing get-away the Island Retreat is perfect. Take yourself back in time with the woodburning stove in the kitchen, and propane lights through out the cabin to a much simpler time. There is no electricity. All the comforts of home with a propane refridgerator and hotwater heater. A true gem in the Northwoods....Classic Northwood's log cabin sitting on 52 acres of beautiful wooded property on Pine Island.

Huge well taken care of cabin with all you need. Jane and Tony were nice folks who took care of what we needed. Caught a few fish of the dock. Nice peaceful location away from the noise.
