About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Come visit our cabin, stay awhile and make some memories.

Year round, you will find it to be a place of peace and rest.

The cabin has three comfortable bedrooms, one bath, kitchen, loft and a great-room. It can sleep 6 and is decorated in a Northwood's style. The main floor bedroom has a queen bed, while the two upstairs bedrooms each have 2 twin beds. Bath and kitchen towels and bed linens are provided. The kitchen is equipped with dinnerware, utensils, cookware, and pantry items. A grill can be found on the screened porch. The great-room has a 6-person dining table, a wood burning stove should you run into cold nights and a TV with CD/DVD/Blue Ray player.

Nestled on the north shore of the Pine Creek Flowage just south of Tomahawk it is a wildlife haven if you take the time to discover it. In the summer, the high quality flowage boasts large wild rice patches with an abundance of water fowl and amphibians. You will have 200 feet of water frontage to discover. Enjoy the private dock or relax in a hammock on the screened porch. Listen to the abundant wildlife found on the water and in the woods surrounding the cabin. Because of the bald eagle that frequents the shoreline, our kids have dubbed the flowage, 'Eagle Strait'. Use our canoe or kayaks to explore the Wisconsin River or Pine Creek. Try your hand at fishing. We have caught Northern Pike, Walleye, Bluegill and Bass. A leisurely paddle across the flowage will yield berries in their seasons. In the evening, enjoy s 'mores at our fire pit and keep an eye out for wildlife activity on the water.

You won't hear the drone of a jet ski on Pine Creek Flowage, just the gentle swish of a canoe paddle. If you enjoy the sound of a jet ski, then with a 10 minute ride into Tomahawk you can rent a jet ski, pontoon boat or fishing boat to enjoy on one of the many lakes. If you’d like to bring your own small fishing boat, there is a public boat launch on the Wisconsin River, a bit down the road, and you can ferry your boat to our dock.

Crystal Beach is a fun outing on a hot day, followed by ice cream at the Windmill (our personal favorite). While in town, be sure to catch the Kwahamot Water Ski show on Tues, Thurs and Saturday nights. Its free and always a fun family event. There are plenty of opportunities for hiking or biking such as Bradley Park or the Hiawatha Trail. If you have an ATV, bring it along and enjoy the many trails in Harrison Hills. Many of the roads in the town of Tomahawk allow ATVs also. Activities such as golf and geocaching are available within a few minutes’ drive as well.

Tomahawk is a fun place to visit all year round. In the fall enjoy the beautiful foliage, hiking, biking and fishing. We are close to some good grouse hunting. In the winter you can take advantage of nearby snowmobile trails and there are ample opportunities for downhill and cross country skiing, snowshoeing and ice fishing.

If it's a cold or rainy day, stay cozy inside and enjoy a movie or play a game with the family. The wood burning stove will keep you comfy. There are games and movies for you to use during your visit. Or maybe you want to start on that book you always meant to read. In town there is shopping, a movie theater, bowling alley and restaurants. Our cabin is 35 minutes from Minocqua and Rhinelander and 40 minutes from Wausau and the many events and sites found there.

We don’t have a TV antenna, cable, satellite dish, or land line phone. Cell phone reception is good enough for voice and data. Please, no pets or smoking in the cabin.

Eagle Strait Cabin is approved by Lincoln County for Tourist Lodging and is Licensed by Lincoln County Health Department.

About Dirk and Nancy Wriedt

We purchased this property in order to build a place where we could make memories with our kids and that could also be a blessing to others. Each of our three kids loves something different about the cabin.

Dirk and Nancy Wriedt purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Dirk and Nancy Wriedt chose Tomahawk

Nancy's family had a cabin in Tomahawk when she was a child and she has very fond memories from that time. When we wanted to build a vacation home our first choice was Tomahawk. Dirk had lots of ideas of how to build a comfortable, sturdy, well used space and this was his chance to apply his ideas.

What makes this cabin unique

We love that the cabin looks and feels nothing like our house. It really is a break from the norm. Its been said that a person can never step in to the same river twice. One of the things we love about this property is that the water is always changing. Each time we visit its a different view because of how the rice and other plants grow and eventually die back. Its always different, yet still the same river.

Woodland Cabin exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

My family certainly enjoyed our three night stay in this woodland cabin by the Wisconsin river. This facility is virtually brand new, thoroughly modern in all the facilities. All three bedrooms were of sufficient size, the great room big enough to serve 8 - 10 individuals, the screen porch provided a magnificent view of the river (how about watching 5 swans - two adults and 3 young swim back in forth each day ! ). The pier was nicely outfitted with bench for leisure contemplation, and the fire ring was well thought out with sufficient seating for all.

Cabin was well stocked in the kitchen, to include basic seasonings, oils and dry goods. Lots of food preparation utensils and serving dishes. Linens are fully stocked, clean.

The location just far enough off a well paved highway, with a short drive into Tomahawk if one needs to go shopping, gas up the car or find a restaurant should you get tired of your own cooking.

It is also a pleasure to find the family's Christian values reflected in their special place.

This cabin is appropriately valued for the fee structure required.

We will be going back. Nancy and Dirk have a wonderful relaxing cabin that gave us everything we expected and more. If you are looking to get away from it all and get back to nature, this is the place to go.

Pleasant fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

Welcoming cabin with all needed amenities. Clean and modern. Comfortable beds. Fantastic screen porch. Enjoyed the opportunity to use bikes and a canoe provided on the property. All directions provided by owners were clear and concise. The only thing we needed was a few more days to enjoy it!

I could live here!

  • 5 of 5

This is a house you could live in. The workmanship inside is wonderful and the home is clean and comfortable. The floors are heated and feel nice and warm in the cool mornings. The owners are great to work with too. Access is easy and the deer walk through the lower yard but you have to get up early to see them! We have been in the area previously and know the Tomahawk area. There is plenty to see and do. We are summer only visitors but this would be a great place to stay in the winter too; already considering next summer.
