Yesterday I had fun photographing this cabin on the south shore of Lake Superior. It’s east of where the Brule River and the Iron River enter Lake Superior, and just west of Port Wing and Herbster.
True, it’s a small cabin. But then on the other hand, it’s a big lake.
It’s also what they call a “shell cabin.” The outside shell is done, and the inside is framed up. That’s it. The good news: By adding the finishing touches, you get to make the cabin yours and finish it according to your own tastes and preferences.
It’s quite a spectacular location. Yesterday was calm and sunny. But when the gales of November come early, and when the waves come crashing against those rock ledges… Wow.

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.
