Property Description

Bedrooms: 2. Bathrooms: 1

  Built just prior to prohibition by a Superior, Wisconsin brewer, this Cabin is part of a 65 acre estate. One of the first cabins built on Upper Eau Claire Lake; it sits in front of some of the best fishing in the area. Upper Eau Claire Lake is considered one of the premier lakes in the region and renowned as one of the top three most desirable lakes along with Lake Owen and Namekagon. Upper Eau Claire connects to four other lakes via small navigable channels and is over 1000 acres large and 90 feet deep. Local lore tells of the original owner falling on hard times due to prohibition and the Estate being used as both a luxury “speak easy” and the transshipment point for smuggled Canadian whiskey to Chicago gangsters. The second owner was a prosperous ship yard owner from Superior Wisconsin and much of the improvements and development was achieved by him to “industrial” standards. The rental cabin is known as the Gatehouse and was originally occupied by the caretakers and as legend has it, the security men allowing passage into the estate during prohibition. The cabin has 2 bedrooms (sleeps 4), one bath, kitchen and living room. It comes with a 16 foot Alumni Craft boat with oars for rowing and a private dock. The Gate house is located approximately 20 miles east of Solon Springs, WI and 30 miles north of Hayward, WI.
