Enjoy the tranquility of the Wisconsin River at rustic Jacks Cabin. Just 100 feet from the back deck flows the river, where you can fish, swim, canoe or kayak, run in the sand or watch large numbers of wildlife. There are deer, turkey, fox, eagles (and many more bird species) to be seen. Smallmouth bass, walleye and pike can be caught in the river by you and your family. The cabin is just 20 minutes from famous Wisconsin Dells or Baraboo. The Aldo Leopold Historical Site is just down the road, and Madison is a short 40 minutes away. Sit on the deck and watch the river flow by.
2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 8

About John Love
This property was purchased by my grandfather, John V. (Jack) Cairns in 1944. I spent weekends and summers there from the time I was five until I enlisted in 1968. I lived there for two years from 1973 to 1975. My grandfather willed this property to his daughter, my mother, who willed it to her four children. The only one with any personal interest in keeping the Cabin was me, so eventually I bought them out. I maintain it as a rental to pay the bills and keep it up.. John Love

Rustic, serene, secluded
Property as expected except for the noises at night coming from inside the walls (mice).
We had an enjoyable stay with the only drawback being the mosquitoes. Bring plenty of repellent.
The cabin is lovely we had a relaxing stay and enjoyed the river view, our dog also enjoyed being with us.
Amazing!! My family and I had an awesome time staying at Jack's cabin it was exactly what we wanted!
First off the pictures dont do it justice, we were amazed by the amount of space there was . Martha was awesome on our first day greeting my family. There were so many amenities provided .we will for sure be staying there next year.
More than amazing
Best little hideaway you can ask for. Nothing but peace and quite.
Thanks for the review. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to hear from you next year.
Awesome view, dog friendly, crazy mosquitos!
We had a great time at Jack’s cabin! The cabin offers amazing views, excellent access to the water, it’s super dog friendly, and a convenient distance from Wisconsin dells! The only complaints we have would be in regard to the ridiculous mosquitos! We slathered on bug spray and lined the deck with citronella candles and still managed to get bit up!
Also the beds weren’t incredibly comfortable but for the price and location they were about what we expected.
Great place to stay, bring your pups... but also bug gear!
Thanks for the great review. Those mosquitoes ARE out of control. I can only assume they are that bad anywhere along the River. We are looking for new mattresses for the hide-a-beds. They are terrible.
The cabin is located on the Wisconsin River near Wisconsin Dells, Baraboo, Aldo Leopold home, International Crane Center and Circus World Museum.
