As the signs says, let’s get the party started. The other day I had fun shooting this vintage cabin with a premium porch overlooking Benoit Lake. Although the rest of the cabin is nice enough, I suspect this porch is where the party will start.
(Benoit Lake is west of Spooner and Trego, not far from the better-known Big McKenzie Lake and Middle McKenzie Lake. This particular cabin has the perfect address; it’s near the end of Rainbow Road. So you could say it’s the proverbial party porch pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.)

The other day I had fun shooting this four-bedroom cabin on Catherine Lake near Barnes, Wisconsin. (Although its mailing address is Solon Springs, it’s actually closer to Barnes than to Solon Springs.) It’s a lovely cabin located in a quiet bay at the north end of Catherine Lake.
The cabin’s new owners will enjoy their own private beach with a sand bottom that’s great for swimming. The slide will be fun for kids of all ages, but landings will probably be more enjoyable after the water has resumed its preferred liquid state. Soon.

The other day I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful lake home overlooking Middle Kimball Lake. (The Kimball Chain of Lakes is located west of Minong, Wisconsin—not far from Nancy Lake, Gilmore Lake, and the Minong Flowage.) It’s a classic up-north lake home, with some fun special touches.
I especially liked the custom stained-glass panels in the main-level great room and dining room. Another unique touch, this one in the lower-level family room: A built-in indoor gas grill right next to the second fireplace. Perfect for grilling on a rainy October evening or a sunny January afternoon.

This home on northwest Wisconsin’s Nelson Lake was just listed this morning. As you can see from the photo, however, it was ready for its close-up last October. Scroll on down for more up-north lake home goodness.
The other day I had the pleasure of photographing this modest but charming home for sale on the Gordon Flowage, which is also known as the Saint Croix Flowage (not to be confused with Upper Saint Croix Lake, which is upstream a ways in Solon Springs, Wisconsin). This lake home is located just upstream of where the Saint Croix River flows into the Gordon Flowage. But since the current is already slack here, it’s easy to boat out into the Flowage and then return home. Even if you’re paddling, the current isn’t too bad on the way back up.
(If you’re not from around here, you might be unfamiliar with the term “flowage,” which is often used to describe lakes formed upstream of dams. You’d think they might be called “stillages,” since there’s actually less current on a flowage. Apparently the term’s origin has to do with what happens right after a dam is built. The water rises, and then it flows onto adjacent land. That land is now underwater, covered by the… flowage.” Other flowages in this area include the Chippewa Flowage, the Trego Flowage, and the Minong Flowage.)
Anyway… I kind of meandered off into an explanatory backwater there. Back to the flow of my story. This lake home on the Gordon Flowage is in quite a nice spot. To learn more, visit www.jeanhedrenrealtor.com. Or, for now… To see more, just scroll on down.
Although the woods surrounding this house are definitely big woods, I wouldn’t call this a “little house in the big woods.” Maybe a medium house in the big woods.
I shot this one the other day near Solon Springs, Wisconsin. It would make a great house out in the country for someone who’s craving serious up-north privacy in a woodland setting. Rumor has it, this house will be for sale later today. For more, scroll on down.
Last summer I had the pleasure of photographing this charming lake home on Lake Minnesuing in Bennett, Wisconsin. The sale was just finalized this morning, so it’s time to celebrate. (Also: Seeing these photos again makes me feel like it’s time to celebrate the imminent arrival of spring, and to get ready for the warm summer evenings of 2017.)
As always, my Realtor wife gets the credit for making this sale happen. But my photos from that afternoon did help convey a very subtle visual message: Size medium lake cabin. Size XL windows. Size medium price tag. Million-dollar view. So I guess sometimes a picture really is worth a whole bunch of words.
