About the property

3 Bedroom, Newly Renovated Lake-front Cottage with Full Amenities + Fireplace

Serendipity Cottage/Cabin at Cable, Wisconsin

3 bedroom cottage on the lakeshore of Lake Namakagon's Mumm's Bay. Perched only feet from the lakeshore, this private location offers a panoramic lake view, sandy lake bottom for good swimming, stand-up paddleboards (SUPs & kayaks available - inquire when reserving), lakeside fire pit and private dock for easy access to these popular fishing and recreational waters.

Enjoy quiet campfires and the sounds of the waves breaking on the shore with the Loons in the quiet background. A private dock (pier) and nice seclusion make this a pristine choice!

Inside, cozy up around the fire in the great room on the large sectional. On rainy days, enjoy the entertainment system with Apple TV, blue-tooth enabled sound bar, and DVD player. Access the high-speed Wi-Fi from all the rooms. Or choose from our selection of games and puzzles for all ages!

Open kitchen, updated appliances, dishwasher and all the kitchen electronics and dishes you need to easily entertain.

Cozy beds + bedding in all rooms and plenty of sleeping spaces for the whole crew! The updated bathroom is elegant and includes all modern amenities. (Just bring your own towels.)

Outside, access all the outdoor sports and recreation you can imagine! From biking to fishing to cross-country skiing, the Cable/Hayward area provides miles of the best off-road trails in the midwest!

Serendipity is smack dab in the heart of some of Wisconsin’s best mountain biking single track, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and snowshoeing! Ride your snowmobile to the front door of your cottage rental when you stay at Serendipity! Easy access to Snowmobile Trail #8 and the trails around Lake Namakagon. Some of the most beautiful and challenging X-C ski trails in the Cable, Wisconsin Area and in the State of Wisconsin are only minutes from Serendipity, including the Rock Lake cross-country ski trails, Namekagon Ski Trail and the world-renowned American Birkebeiner Ski Trail.

Lake Namakagon is the tenth largest natural lake in Wisconsin. *Serendipity* cottage is located on the shoreline of Picnic Point on Mumm's Bay. One of only three Wisconsin lakes to be managed as a trophy musky lake, Lake Namakagon is a fisherman’s paradise. We regularly see musky catches of 40” or more! This lake also offers abundant walleye, bass, northern pike, crappies and pan fish.

About Jason & Colette

Jason first fell in love with this home when he rented it from the previous owners! He had spent years visiting the Cable area for the Birkebeiner, Fat Tire, and to enjoy all the amazing outdoor recreation. He particularly loved Lake Namakogon - one of the most pristine and beautiful lakes Northwestern Wisconsin has to offer - and the privacy of this property. So when we randomly found out the previous owners were moving south and the cabin was up for sale, it felt like serendipity!

We were so excited to move into our little piece of paradise! We enjoy the privacy of our cabin, and love coming here year-round. The cabin has been recently renovated, with updated amenities and everything you could possibly need. The style is modern rustic, with beautiful countertops and fireplace, vaulted ceiling, updated wood interior, and plenty of Northwoods style decorations.

Sitting in one of the calmest areas on the lake, Mumm's Bay is known for fantastic fishing. The cabin is 25' from the water, so you're constantly reminded of nature's beauty, whether cooking, dining or relaxing. A great family stay for sure!

We are so excited to welcome you to our slice of heaven!

Jason & Colette purchased this cabin in 2015

A little slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity was everything we had hoped for and more! Beautiful cottage on gorgeous Lake Namakagon! The fishing, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding were superb. The cottage is located on Mumm's Bay, so although Lake Namakagon is large, it was very quiet at this location. The cottage was well appointed, with a fully stocked kitchen, charcoal grill, fire pit, great dock, and stunning lakefront views out the living room and kitchen windows. The open floor plan was ideal and the sandy bottom and level frontage were a plus. We hope to come again and will highly recommend it to all our family and friends!

Very cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely escape to the north woods. Perfect for family fun. Owners were easy to work with - timely response to inquiry, rental and financial arrangements. We brought our own double kayak and enjoyed paddling around the bay. Grad kids loved fishing off the shore though would have appreciated if the pier had been in. Kitchen was well stocked. Living room kitchen dining area very comfortable with amazing lake views.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review & for being great guests! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay with your family. I'm sorry you missed the pier; the crazy spring weather pushed everything off the "normal" schedule. On the flip side, I'm so glad this crazy weather meant that you had such an unseasonably warm weekend to enjoy the water! We hope to have you stay again. Best, Jason & Colette
