About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

This secluded retreat is located on 40 acres between Amherst and Waupaca Wisconsin. Private and on the water it is sure to help you build special memories. The home is log constructed with covered porches, open concept floor plan and loft. Located just a few feet from the Tomorrow River, a premier trout stream, its quiet location set back from one of Wisconsin’s Rustic Roads will make you feel like you are million miles away from the hustle bustle of the world.

With 2 comfortable bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, loft with a full and twin sized bed and a full-sized hide-a-bed it can easily sleep 6 guests. The kitchen is equipped for full meals and more. Amenities include coffee maker, microwave, full-sized fridge and toaster. A full sized dining table can seat everyone. There is a sitting area just off the dining room for reading and visiting with family and friends. The living room is adjacent with seating for 6. Off the living room enjoy a beautiful covered deck overlooking the river. This cozy one-bath home has a first floor shower/bath combo and a nearby full laundry. Linens and towels are provided for our guests.

Enjoy hiking, swimming, nature walks, rafting, kayaking, and fishing on this spacious property. The stretch of river just behind the cabin has a nice ambling way about it, making it great for young children and relaxing in the cool spring-fed waters. The large front and back yards make the property perfect for outside games and activities. The front of the property features a large naturalized meadow. In the evening enjoy a private bonfire at the fire-pit which overlooks the river . A game closet, Wi-fi, and full-sized TV with basic cable are also provided.

Outside you will find a picnic table, lawn chairs (6), grill and fire pit (wood provided, please do not bring your own due to Emerald Ash Bore concerns).

Quaint, comfortable, secluded property

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time. The cabin was beautiful. Anything you need is available. Beds were very comfortable. Favorite part was watching the birds on the back porch. Couldn't believe the variety that flew in to feed. Especially the hummingbirds.

The river was beautiful. A bit too shallow and rocky for our tastes for kayaking. Caught lots of baby bass off the little dock, but nothing worth keeping.

One morning we spotted a doe walking through the front of the property. Chipmunks and squirrels were in attendance also.

The River Ridge Cabin is the perfect get away for family and friends. The owners were welcoming and took the time to show us around the cabin so we knew where everything was. It was very neat and clean. It has everything that a family would need for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

Away From It All

  • 5 of 5

What a find!!! The cabin and property are absolutely gorgeous! No neighbors (super secluded), well taken care of massive property, beautiful and well equipped cabin inside and out! We loved the trail passageways on the property, beautiful night skies, all the amenities and decorations inside the house, various birdfeeders, clear water creek, visiting deer families and more! We enjoyed our stay here and will surely be back! Thank you!

Absolutely beautiful inside and out

  • 5 of 5

Rustic and primitive decor make this cabin a step back in time to a simpler era. All needed items available to enjoy a home cooked meal, comfy beds, and even Internet. The outdoors' scenery is inspiring, bird watching is a calming activity and the motion of the river that runs through the property is meditative to the soul. Absolutely wonderful.

Clean, quiet, and quaint. This cabin was exactly what we had been looking for!

  • 5 of 5

River Ridge Cabin was private, quiet, and serene. It is was perfect for the four of us and our faithful hound. The outdoor spaces are FANTASTIC and the small river is the icing on the cake. This is definitely like going to Grandma's cabin: It's got everything you need, it's tidy, clean and well lived in.

Wonderful for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very cozy and perfectly equipped for a nice few days of relaxation, reading and also very close to standing rock where you can ski, snowshoe and enjoy outdoor activities.
