Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Elk

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Newly constructed in 2013! Two Bedroom/One Bathroom cabin on Wilson Lake, which is part of the 4 lake chain in Phillips, consisting of Long Lake, Elk Lake, Wilson Lake, and Lake Duroy. Cabin has a nice corner wood stove with stone accent and cedar mantle. Bedroom 1 has a double bed, Bedroom 2 has two twin beds, and a rollaway bed is available, to accommodate up to 5 guests. Kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans, utensils, dishes, etc. Bedding and towels (1 per person) are included. Large covered porch overlooks the lake, and there is nice boardwalk from the cabin to the water's edge, and on to the dock. Frontage is what is considered 'fisherman's frontage' and can get quite weedy in mid to late summer, but while it is not be suitable for swimming, there are several islands and beaches throughout the chain for swimming activities. Tie your boat to the dock, or take out the rowboat that is included in the rental. Please note that if you are bringing a boat, the bay can get a bit weedy, and a flat bottom, tri hull, smaller aluminum fishing boat, or even a pontoon would be best suited for this part of the lake. One may have trouble getting in with a deep V. Snowmobile trail is accessed right on the lake. ATV trails are nearby, as well as unlimited fishing on the chain. The chain offers a variety of fish, most notably Musky and Walleye. Crappie, bluegill, northern pike are also abundant. Waterfowl are always abundant. You can listen to the loons in the evening. You may even spot a pair of Swans. In the spring and fall, the lake is full of several different kinds of ducks and geese. Unlimited opportunities for grouse hunting, as well as turkey, deer and bear. There is a fire pit and a charcoal grill. Be sure to bring your own charcoal.

About Josh Gluege

I have grown up doing many outdoor activities, and have been coming to the northwoods for hunting/fishing/leisure since I was a young child. I am a contractor by trade, a husband and a father.

Josh Gluege purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Josh Gluege chose Wisconsin

I purchased this property as an investment, and built the cabin over the winter of 2012/2013. I am happy to have it available so others can enjoy the northwoods as I do.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is secluded and located toward the end of a dead end road. Watching the waterfowl from the covered porch never gets old. It is not uncommon to hear ruffed grouse 'drumming' on the property. Loons can be seen and heard at just about any given time. Eagles are also common. At the end of a cold day of snowmobiling or ice fishing, come in and warm up by the fireplace. Or in the summer, sit out on the porch, and listen to the ball game on the radio after a good day out on the lake.

Very peaceful & cute cabin

  • 4 of 5

It was extremely peaceful & a nice little cabin. Everything was described well on the posting. The only thing stopping me from giving it five stars is the beds. They weren't very comfortable. I also want to mention that unless you have verizon cell phones you will get absolutely no service. I actually enjoyed it since my mom couldn't sit on her facebook the whole time. Just wish I would have known prior to getting there. Luckily, the attendant at the gas station in town let me use their phone so I could call my house/pet sitter. We enjoyed our stay & only wished we had a few more days.

Clean and quiet

  • 3 of 5

Cabin was nice and it was very clean. Josh was responsive and answered my questions quickly. Nice place for a couple just looking to get away. Phillips was a nice small town to visit. Fishing was not good, but I'm sure if you are willing to launch a boat at a nearby boat landing there are plenty of options. We were able to take the row boat out to less weedy water. Still didn't catch any fish, but enjoyed the view and the experience.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

While I was shopping for a place to stay somewhere in the great Northwoods I came across an adorable cabin in Phillips, WI. The description of the property convinced me that this was the place for me. I could tell from the pictures that it was very nice but it was even more wonderful in person. Just walking through the door seemed like home. It was immaculately clean, tastefully decorated and really spacious. My fiancé and I were both totally impressed with the whole experience. The owner did a wonderful job of contacting us prior to our visit and leaving instructions and even restaurant recommendations in the cabin for us.

This was truly a fantastic deal and we are looking forward to returning in the Fall.

Rustic and Clean

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our time at this cabin very much. It is close enough to town so if you need something you can get it in a short amount of time, yet far enough away from traffic so it is peacefully quiet. Very clean and well maintained cabin. The large deck is a great to have especially on rainy days or nights when you can't do much. It's a great extension of the cabin. The only downsides to this cabin is the beds are a little small and fishing on Wilson Lake is not good. But there are plenty of lakes around that you can get to for better fishing!

Very Nice and Private!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a very enjoyable stay at the Wilson Lake Cottage. We loved the quiet private setting. Even though it was not on the best part of the water, it was still nice to be on the water and be able to enjoy the view. The property was clean and well-maintained.

They could improve on a few items, which include the mattresses on all beds, including the rollaway and more comfortable living room furniture although these are not deal breakers, it would make the stay even more enjoyable.

I was surprised to see that they supplied soaps, paper towel and toilet paper although I had brought my own. They supplied bath and kitchen towels, but not enough and I was very glad I had brought enough of my own. They also had a lot of wood available to use for the fire pit and we were able to have a fire every night. I would recommend bringing drinking water for your stay and also for your pet, as the water is not the best.

The property is also close enough to town to pick up groceries and other items. The town is small but does have a lot to offer including a beach, a movie theatre, a variety of stores, some attractions including "Fred Smith's Wisconsin Concrete Park" and a lot of good eating places to choose from.

Josh was great at getting back to me when I had additional questions. Our security deposit was processed quickly. My family would highly recommend a stay at this cabin!
