About Courtney Swanson
Our mission is to bring life experiences back to families! "Take Vacations- You can always make money, You can't always make memories" We fell in love with the Siren area and quickly realized that cabin rentals needed to stay so others could enjoy the area, the lake and themselves! Formally known as Camp Northland Resort we were drawn to the beauty and laid back atmosphere that these cabins had to offer. With this adventure upon us we as a family are determined to keep the feel that has been present since 1940. Our family loves nature, the water, sitting around a campfire making s’mores and spending time together with family and friends ! Each of the cabins have been named with meaning behind them continue thru our website to learn more.

A work in progress...
We had a nice stay at the Wisconsin Gold Cabin at this little resort in July 2019. This property is under new ownership and it is clear that they are working hard to make this a great property. Courtney was excellent at communicating with us when we had questions and the check in process was easy.
The cabin itself was very cute and definitely an authentic Wisconsin cabin. Although the cabin was generally clean, I was a bit put off that everything inside was very "on the cheap". All dishes and cooking supplies were very old and mis-matched, the toaster required some patients to get it to work, the curtains had stains on them, the mattresses were very firm and covered with a plastic bed bag. Although I appreciate the hygienic reasons for a bed bag, there are better quality bed coverings that don't leave you sleeping in a pool of your own sweat. Antenna TV only with very sketchy reception.
The description says this cabin will accommodate 6 people. There are two double beds and one twin (upper bunk). To me that sleeps 5 people max. There is no living space. There is one love seat in the dining area. If you plan to be outside of the cabin for everything but sleeping, then you might make this work for 5 people, max.
The location is good and Clam Lake was a great little fishing lake that wasn't crazy busy, even on the weekend (busy, but not annoyingly so). Lots of weeds so if you are a coming to fish, prepare for that. There is a fish house for cleaning fish...but at this time, it clearly hasn't been touched since the 1950's.... a little spooky.
The other cabins on the property appear to be clean and well kept. The "main house" on the property dead center on the property is in disrepair and overgrown with weeds. There were several rusty appliances sitting outside the main house.
In time, I think this has the potential to be a great little resort and I think the owners are working on it. I think it would benefit the owners to be transparent about that prior to bookings and also adjust the nightly rate to reflect the current "cons" for staying at this property.
Thank you for your comments. We take all feedback from our renters seriously and will make changes to help improve the items you have listed. Being new owners We always want to try satisfy our customers.
My apologies for the mess in front of the old main house. The old owners were and are working on removing all items from the house as we close on that property next week, (which then all items outside will have been cleaned up) Once we close on the property we will begin the process of tearing the house down, which provides opportunity for a new beautiful cabin to be built.
This property used to be part of a resort, and now is considered a condo association. We own 4 (soon to be 5) of the properties, that we rent out. The association has to wait until the old owners have closed on the house to begin making changes and clean up to the grounds. But please know that the association has big plans on improving and making changes to grounds itself.
Thank you again for your feedback!
