Here’s one more NW WI lake cabin sold by Jean Hedren, your Northwest Wisconsin Realtor. It just closed a few hours ago; today, the scenery would be slightly different from what you see in these photos. The water would also be colder and harder.
Last summer I especially enjoyed photographing this cabin at the edge of Lake Nebagamon. It’s one of those rare cabins that was grandfathered in before the days of modern shoreline setback regulations. It’s so close to the water that anyone who’s in the habit of sleepwalking had better be a good swimmer. Seriously.
Although it’s a cute cabin with many other selling points, I knew that would be the key idea I’d want to convey with nearly every image, including the interiors. If every picture tells a story, the story I wanted to tell here was very simple: This cabin is close to the water.

There goes another home sold by Jean Hedren, your northwest Wisconsin Realtor. This one’s out in the country near Solon Springs. I very much enjoyed photographing it last fall, and not just because of its beautiful wooded setting. This well-maintained and tastefully decorated home was quite nice on the inside, too. I did my part, and we came away with some lovely interiors. For more, just scroll on down.
Here’s another sale that just became official yesterday. This lake home was sold by Jean Hedren, your Northwest Wisconsin Realtor. It was also, as it happens, photographed by yours truly. This historic 1926 lake home in Solon Springs, Wisconsin has a number of unique architectural features, and I made sure to showcase them in my photos.
You might call this a cottage, because back in 1926 it was built as a summer place and not as a primary residence. But it’s not your ordinary cabin up at the lake. It was built by Joseph Lucius, a canoe builder, contractor, and noteworthy local citizen who in 1905 was profiled in the Commemorative Biographical Record of the Upper Lake Region. A few excerpts: “…Since then he has lived on the Brule River, where he kept a summer resort for several years… Most of the buildings and boats on that romantic and historic stream have been built by Mr. Lucius… He is a contractor and employs a number of men… Mr. Lucius’ own residence, commenced in 1902, is an ideal rustic home, furnished both inside and outside with natural cedar. This, as well as the club houses he has built, is fitted with water works and other modern conveniences… Mr. Lucius is a man held in great respect by all who know him, and the trust reposed in him has always been amply justified.”
Amen to that. And this Solon Springs lake home is a great example of how the trust reposed in Mr. Lucius has always been amply justified. (It’s also, of course, fitted with water works and other modern conveniences.) For more, just scroll on down.
