Bunkhouse Up North at the Cabin

Bunkhouses. They’re not just for the wild west anymore.

Traditionally, they’re a rustic barracks-like building used to house itinerant cowpokes, who were mostly single young men. Or in these here parts, a bunkhouse might have been where lumberjacks slept in a logging camp.

Now, although as far as I know the term doesn’t have an official real estate definition, it’s used to refer to an accessory building that’s something less than a “guest cabin.” A bunkhouse doesn’t have a kitchen, and may not even have a bathroom. It’s just for sleeping. (In practice, it might also be used for late-night poker parties, a place for surly teenage grandkids to hang out on rainy days, etc. That sort of thing.) 

Some, although a bit on the rustic side, are actually not too bad. Here’s an example from northwest Wisconsin.  It’s in Solon Springs on the east side of Lake Saint Croix. For a peek inside, just scroll on down.

And…  Here’s that cabin next door. Although smaller, it’s quite nicely maintained and renovated. On the “cabin cuteness” scale, I’d say it scores around a 99.

Northwest Wisconsin Cabin for Sale on Lake Saint Croix (Solon Springs, WI)

I’ve just finished shooting and processing photos from this and an adjacent cabin in Solon Springs, WI. They’re on the east side of Lake Saint Croix, and both have excellent views of the lake. They’re available separately, or in a package deal that includes both cabins, both docks, and a bunkhouse for extra guests.

For a quick look inside the first cabin, just scroll on down. Next time: the cabin next door.
