JUNE AND/OR JULY 2015 ON 'OUTSTANDING' WHITEFISH/BARDON LAKE

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Wascott - 'BARDON NARROWS'

On 400 feet of shoreline, amidst tall Norway pines in a little cove of its own, this non-smoking 2 BR, 1 Bath Cabin is steps from a most sought-after lake. Furnished with some antiques and original art, this simple cabin can be a pleasant change from your own space. No TV - but books, board games, playing cards, WIFI, and an assortment of DVD's/ Video Cassettes played on the elderly TV - all of the above can keep a body occupied when it rains. ONE NEEDS TO BRING ONE's OWN TOWELS, SHEETS for a QUEEN BED, and 2 TWIN BEDS. NB: Sorry But it will be necessary for you to take your refuse to the Gordon dump, open TUESDAY. THURSDAY, and SATURDAY (Local caretakers are over-extended during this season).

This lake is described by Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources as an 'Outstanding Resource Water' and a 'pristine lake.' The water chemistry in White Fish Lake [Bardon is its' official name] is different from most other NW Wisconsin lakes because it has softer water and lower concentrations of the constituents in other lakes. This makes the water clarity in White Fish/Bardon Lake very, very good. Where the average grade for water quality in most NW Wisconsin lakes is 30, White Fish Lake's is 1! Part of the reason for this clear water is the lake's sandy setting which filters the water through layer-upon-layer of glacier-era sand. This also means this 833 acres lake (3 miles long and 1 mile wide) is not only notable for it's clear, clear water, but for its lovely sandy bottom [no ucky weeds or slimy footing].

Fishing in the North End of the lake, with it's warmer water (60 ft deep) is for Walleye and Yellow Perch; in the South End (larger, and deeper - at 102 ft deep) there are Cisco and Trout.

There is a public landing a couple of miles down the road from the cabin should you wish to bring your own boat. If not, an ancient canoe, a row-boat, and a windsurfer (provided you can locate all the parts) are on site. This property has served to just slow us down, get us to rest and chill out - dangle your feet as you sit on the dock and feel the baby trout minows tickle your toes, swim, float in the floaties, paddle the canoe around the shore line, sit out on the deck in the sun, and again at night to see the stars, listen to the loons as they bed down for the night, and if needing a little excitement - Golden Chipmunk, just 6 miles away has terrific ribs, and even better hamburgers - should you need to take a break from resting.

My grandfather pioneered on this lake in 1910. My husband's father's closest friend was also an original on the lake. We have both been coming up to 'the lake' since we were little - i.e. more than 70 years. This is our very special place, and never before rented. We are pleased to share it with those who can appreciate it's particular flavor.

Elizabeth E Emmert purchased this cabin in 1984

After my grandfather lost his business, following the Depression, as well as the lovely house he'd built at White Fish, this has been our substitute 'spot.' And after all it was affordable.

It is so close to the lake; it is somewhat sheltered from the fierce storms that love Douglas County - nestled in its protected cove. It's sandy swimming area goes out for many yards, making it a lovely place to splash and paddle without fear of 'the depths!'

GREAT VACATION!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
This was an absolute great experience! The cabin was great, and the rental owners were even better. They were prompt with a response with every one of my questions. They even recommended fun activities in the area during our stay. The cabin was right on the water in a crystal clear lake. There's nothing better than falling asleep to the sound of the water, only steps away from the front door. The Huge sand bar right out front of the dock was excellent for swimming. Will definately look to stay again next year!!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words! And we are so pleased you had a good time. Getting the cottage ready to rent for the first time was something of a challenge - and so we appreciate your feedback. And our review of YOU as a tenant is: A+ The cleaning help were most impressed with how clean it was when they came in, and we thought "how many tenants would travel around to several stores looking for glue to mend a little table on the deck that needed some help?" As we've mentioned - you will ALWAYS be welcome in our beloved spot!
