Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing this lake home right in my own neighborhood. It’s on a quiet corner of the Saint Croix Flowage. (Locally, the lake is also known as the Gordon Flowage. Or, sometimes you’ll see it described as the Gordon-Saint Croix Flowage or the Gordon/Saint Croix Flowage.) Either way, it’s one of the largest lakes in northwest Wisconsin. It covers over 1900 acres, and has a shoreline of over 29 miles.
Instead of just being a big round lake, it has a meandering shoreline and lots of hidden bays just waiting to be explored. Most of its shoreline is undeveloped, and the Flowage has a near-wilderness character.
If my wife and I didn’t already live on the lake, we might have taken a look at this home. Unfortunately, it’s no longer available. It was only on the market for two days.
But for a quick peek inside, a look at the home’s waterfront, and an aerial drone photo of the Gordon Flowage, just scroll on down.
In my last post I wrote about how helpful drone photos can be when I’m trying to show the lay of the land. And often my real estate photos are designed to showcase spectacular lake views; that’s even true of many interiors. After all…. When it comes to up-north lake homes and cabins, that view is usually a big part of what we’re selling.
But while the lakes, rivers, and forests of northwest Wisconsin can be incredibly beautiful, here in the north woods it’s also possible to find beauty on a smaller scale. So whether you’re out on the trail or up at the cabin, don’t forget to look down. To see what I mean, just scroll on down.
This northwest Wisconsin lake cabin near Spooner and Trego comes with a big chunk of land nestled in between Loon Lake and Goose Lake. What’s more, a short portage allows paddlers to travel between Goose Lake and Casey Lake. So some lucky buyer will be getting privacy, plenty of elbow room, and two or three lakes for the price of one.
Although the cabin itself is just fine, the land and the lakes are a big part of what makes this property special. Drone aerials like the one above really helped me tell that story visually. (Some of the photos I made with my “regular” camera helped with that job, too.) For more, just scroll on down.
