What makes this cabin unique

Stickley Lodge Getaway. The Historic Stickley Area. Logging, cabins, historic history of business owners from a long time ago, gangsters, area(s) which President Roosevelt hunted, fished, etc., and more. Sylvania Natural Wilderness Area has many stories, books, etc. about the area also. This area is toward town (east of the cabin).

Stickley (GNIS FID: 1621776) is a populated place located within the Township of Watersmeet, a minor civil division (MCD) of Gogebic County.

The elevation of Stickley is 1,634 feet. Stickley appears on the Thayer U.S. Geological Survey Map. Gogebic County is in the Central Time Zone (UTC -6 hours). Many areas in some states are not this high.

Just north east approximately of the cabin was the area of "Stickley Lodge" the wilderness retreat for Albert Stickley of Grand Rapids, Michigan {Stickley Brothers Company/Quaint Furniture} brother of Gustav Stickley. Described as palatial, it had eight bedrooms and a huge $30,000.00 pipe organ. Albert used the location to oversee his lumber holdings. After his death lodge was turned into a resort "to a few who desire refinement and the companionship of cultured guests."

At one time property had its own railroad spur. With a big "S" on the hillside marking his private train stop, Mr Stickley could be dropped off at the covered shelter with steps leading up the hill to the lodge. You can still make out the grading for the tracks thru the swamp that passes Stickley Lake.

You can enjoy the area of some of the great men and women that passed through this area many years ago. Visit the area museum (one in Land O'Lakes), walk through the National Forest, and enjoy the adventures.

GREAT CENTERED LOCATION TO DO MANY THINGS. On snowmobile and ORV trail (with many connecting trails). Great boat landing to a 15 lake serene, not overly populated, chain of lakes with many islands.

MANY ACTIVITIES TO DO IN EVERY DIRECTION OF CABIN. Canoe, kayak, bike, hike, fish, sitesee, cross country ski, and more

Love Watersmeet!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect starting point for a Northwoods vacation! Clean cabin, pet friendly, many amenities, comfy beds = wonderful vacation. During our 3 night stay we explored the area and saw several waterfalls, porcupine mountain state park, paulding lights and traveled many miles of the ORV trails minutes from the cabin. We also visited Land O Lakes (WI) and Cisco Lake. Although the cabin had a full kitchen with great seating, each night we walked right across the street to Rogers Bar. Rogers had great food and amazing service. There is a good size grocery store nearby the cabin with reasonable prices as well (Nordines). We are already talking about wanting to go back this winter for another visit. We would definitely recommend and rent this cabin again!

Nice woodsy rental with plenty of space. Great location to trails and right across from Rogers Bar. We fit 7 people nicely and could have fit plenty more. Cabin was clean, full of games and we loved the popcorn maker.

Sylvania Wilderness area, trails and eqpt.

We care about our guests. Want you to have fun. Helpful information for a good trip overall in the cabin. The old time name of the town area where the cabin is was called Stickley. And, the cabin has branches-sticks-logs decorated according to name in history (Stickley, like sticks and this was an old time logging area) and add some fun to your stay. Not far from the cabin was the last stagecoach robbery (which is on Stagecoach Road), west of the cabin (past the waterfalls) and on the way to Lake Gogebic and another boat landing area. There are many stories and history of the area. And, we want you to create your own fun and personal history. Others will ask you where you had your vacation----and you can smile and say in the sticks (like the old saying meaning out in the woods, etc.). And, the cabin is actually decorated with real sticks-branches-wood. History - In the early 1900's a group of 6 prominent mining and steel industrialists purchased large tracts of land just west of Watersmeet and formed the Sylvania Club. These men, who had made their fortunes on the environment, treasured and preserved Sylvania's forests, lakes and wildlife for the intangible wealth of its pristine qualities. Sylvania was unique and rare in that it had escaped the era of logging and the wave of fires that impacted most of the area around it. Club membership changed over the years and the Forest Service purchased the tract of land in 1967 from P.C. Christainson, the last surviving owner, and from the estate of Lawrence Fisher. For the first time, Sylvania was open to the public. All buildings were removed and trails that once accommodated carriages and motor vehicles now serve as hiking trails and portages between lakes.

**This is the area that many movie stars use to come to and President Roosevelt. And, there are many mobster stories in the area (between the ones from Wisconsin and then also Michigan as this is the border area. The museum and others involved in historic preservation such as contacts at Sylvania Outfitters could share some interesting facts on the area**.

Unique, wildlife theme, fun cabin w/beaver decor, branch siding, approx. 10 acres and w/Ottawa National Forest behind cabin. Displays, activity pages, DVDs, creative wall art, etc. Ceiling fans, fans, air conditioned and curtains-drapes-blinds to help keep it cooler in Summer. Microwave, toaster, can opener, coffee maker.
