About the property

Sleeps 8 comfortably, with a sandy beach, tennis courts, and dock for your boat

Welcome to the north woods, and to crystal-clear Lake Owen! The lake is 95 feet deep and almost nine miles long, and is one of the clearest lakes in Wisconsin! Our "cabin" is a three bedroom townhome right on the shore, with your own private dock. You will have lake views from almost every room, as well as the deck overlooking the lake. Three well-appointed bedrooms will comfortably sleep 8. The kitchen is stocked with a wide range of gourmet tools and accessories, and has a breakfast bar with seating for three. The dining room and the living room enjoy vaulted ceilings and natural cedar paneling, as well as a wall of windows overlooking the lake. The living room has a fieldstone fireplace, and is equipped with a TV with DVD player, and a Roku if you want to stream movies using the high-speed internet.

The second-floor master bedroom has a private ensuite bathroom, and can be opened up to the living area below if you want. It has a brand new king size bed with premium bedding, and a comfortable chair for reading or relaxing. Two additional bedrooms are on the lower level, and are served by their own full bath. The Queen Room has a single queen bed and a private sliding door entrance with direct lake access and views. The Bunk Room has twin bunk beds as well as two additional twin beds, and has a window view of the water. A full washer and dryer are also on the lower level for your use. The main-level deck has plenty of seating, and is equipped with a brand new Weber Genesis grill.

If you love to fish, you have found the perfect spot. Lake Owen is a great fishing destination, and is renowned as one of the best lakes for smallmouth bass in the state. In addition, walleye, Northern pike, crappies, and largemouth bass are also here in substantial populations. The lake is narrow from end to end, which provides protection on windy days. If you bring a boat, you are welcome to use our private dock, which is directly in front of the condo.

Cable is a five minute drive away, and has everything you might need, including gas and groceries, hardware, a great bookstore, a natural history museum, and several great restaurants. We love Brick House Cafe for lunch and Rivers Eatery for dinner, and breakfast at Delta Diner is definitely worth the drive!

The property is located in Lake Owen Villas, which is a small, private association with over 1000' of lake frontage and a wide range of amenities.

-Sandy beach with swimming dock

-Two tennis courts

-Two lakeside fire pits for bonfires and s'mores

-A playset for the kids (if they need a break from playing at the beach!)


-Well-maintained grounds for walking along the shore

This is a great spot for a family vacation, but the neighborhood quiet hours mean that it wouldn't be ideal for a party at the lake. No smoking is allowed anywhere on our property, including the deck. In addition, no pets are allowed and renters are not allowed to bring jet skis per neighborhood rules.

If you aren't familiar with Lake Owen and the Cable area, you are in for a treat. The lake is crystal clear - one of the cleanest in the state - and is about 9 miles long. The charming town of Cable is renowned for its extensive network of trails, which are a short drive from the property.

-Biking - The CAMBA trail network includes 400 miles of mountain biking to satisfy riders of every ability level, with miles of quiet and scenic country roads to bike on if that is more your style.

-Hiking - Easy access to hiking trails that will lead you to bubbling streams, pristine ponds, and the essence of the north woods. Trailheads are easy to find nearby, with numerous trails in the county forest and the 1.5 million acre Chequamegon National Forest. In addition, the 4600 mile North Country Trail passes just north of Lake Owen.

-Cross country skiing is some of the best in the Midwest, and is known throughout the world. The American Birkebeiner is the largest Nordic ski race in North America, and the starting line is only a few miles away.

A wide range of watersports opportunities await you as well. Lake Owen is ideal for boating and fishing, and is also a fantastic spot for paddlesports of all kinds. If that isn't enough, the beautiful Namekagon River passes just a couple of miles south of us, and is very popular for canoe trippers. Is whitewater more your style? The Brule River is an easy drive for your whitewater adventures.

Like golf? You are in luck!

-Telemark Golf Course is a par 72 championship course, and is less than five miles away.

-Lakewoods Forest Ridges is an 18 hole course less than nine miles away, and is ranked "4 stars" by Golf Digest.

-The Cable/Hayward area is billed as the "Golf Capital of Wisconsin", with 9 courses all within an easy drive.

You can explore the area by car as well. Bayfield is about an hour away, and features beautiful views of Lake Superior and a ferry to Madeline Island. In the fall, the Cable Color Tour is a marked driving route with stunning fall colors. And everywhere you look, there is a quiet country road to enjoy, and to remind you that you have gotten away from it all!

About John Ames

We live in the Twin Cities, and love coming to our “cabin” in all seasons! We are avid outdoors people, and we love to ski and snowshoe in the winter, and hike, bike and paddle in the summer. This is the perfect spot for us! We also love the feeling of “getting away” for a break from the Cities, while being a short drive from home.

This is our first season on VRBO, and we are excited to host guests in our “cabin”. We look forward to helping you with your vacation plans in any season!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

John and Shari have put together an imaculately cared for property on the beautiful southern shore of Lake Owen near Cable, Wisconsin. Very well equipt with everything one would need to feel at home. Our family was very comfortable and would recommend this to anyone. John was communicative and all of the details were clear and laid out for us. Perfect! Thank you for making our Memorial Day weekend great! We would like to come back! Jeff and family
