About Louie Austin
I purchased our cabin after looking at over 200 cabins in the surrounding area. It was love at first sight, I knew I had stumbled on a little piece of heaven. My two Jack Russell's Daisy and Lucky do absolutely love the cabin. When we arrive ,Daisy jumps our of the car, runs right down to the lake and goes for a swim.We are excited to share this experience with you.
Louie Austin purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Louie Austin chose Siren

Siren has shops, mini golf, indoor ice skating, the DQ, there are many antique shops, great restaurants, hiking and biking trails.
What makes this Cabin unique
Like being on Golden Pond. I fell in love with the cabin and setting the moment we walked in. Its my favorite place in the world. Built by a Norwegian Craftsman, the stone fireplace and tongue and grove cedar paneling are reminiscent of an era gone bye. Peaceful and quite , you can hear the loons call at night. Tons of windows, warm summer breezes , moon lit nights. On a sun lit morning, laying in bed you can see the reflection of the water dance on the ceiling over head. Beautiful crystal ,clear, water, great for swim on a warm summers day.

Great get away. Nice cabin with beautiful quiet lake. Louie is a great host.
Perfect get away for our 1st anniversary! The lake is beautiful and quiet without a lot of speed boats. Most others on the lake putted around slowly on pontoons. Cabin is well maintained and furnished with everything we needed. It was a big plus that we could bring our 2 dogs. Louie greeted us when we arrived. He gave us info on great places to visit in nearby towns. Very good host! We will be back again next year!
Thank you! I am very pleased you enjoyed your vacation. This wonderful review makes all the hard work worth it!
Thank you again!
Amazing Stay in the Northwoods
Couldn’t be happier with this place, truly a gem of the Northwoods! Owner was already there when we arrived and made the check in process extremely easy. The place was larger than I expected and very clean with a nice Northwoods charm. Lake was the perfect size, clean and with good fishing from bluegills to bass. Owner was extremely responsive and even came out promptly when we had some difficulties getting the pontoon going. Would recommend this place for anyone whether it be a long weekend or a week stent!
Clair, It makes me very happy that you had a great time and love the cabin. I understand vacation time looked forward to for months. It’s time. to relax , unwind and make wonderful memories! Thank you for staying at Whispering Pines! I am very greatful for your patronage!
Great Family Vacation!!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed this cabin! It was quaint and perfect for our family of five (plus our little dog). We went for peaceful walks every morning and enjoyed bonfires at night. We also got a lot of exercise using the steps to the water. If you have trouble with steps, this cabin is not for you! It appeared that some wood boards were recently replaced on the steps and dock. If I had to give one critique, it would be to replace a few more boards as they were quite weathered. Louie had a very nice pontoon we were able to rent. The weather was great so we were able to make good use of it. I appreciated Louie personally meeting us to check-in at the property and show us around. The cabin was very clean and it was obvious that he takes great care of it. Thanks for a wonderful getaway!
Comfy cabin on the lake
This cabin was great for two couples for a weekend trip. The cabin is just as I like it with the knotty pine floors and walls, old stone fireplace and the real cabin feel. The kitchen, dining and living room areas were all open which was nice. Lots of windows to look out towards the lake. There's no AC but the cabin is always shaded under the pine trees, so it didn't get hot at all, plenty of fans in the cabin to help. The bathroom was nice, and the shower was big which is a plus. We loved the lake - it is nice and small and quiet, unlike other lakes that have tons of water ski boats and jet skis zooming all over making noise and waves. We caught lots of fish pretty much everywhere we fished, even in front of the dock. Lots of sunfish, some crappies and bass too. The only thing we wished was different was the stairs up and down to the lake/dock. But that's just the way it is. Overall we enjoyed the cabin and lake very much!
We had a terrific time at Dunham lake. The cabin is quaint, clean, and well appointed. It advertises well and meets those expectations. Louie is super responsive and answers his phone for any questions. Loved the location - very quiet lake and close to town. Would rent it again in a heart beat.
