This cabin is on Bass Lake in St. Croix County only 15-20 minutes from downtown Stillwater! If you go tubing down the Apple River, be sure that you wear life jackets and good shoes, (not just water socks). Remember, it is a real and wild river. Do not mistake it for a waterpark Lazy River. The riverbottom has large rocks and the currents are strong. We really had a lot of fun on their outdoor water slides. If all you want to do is slide and mini golf, then the ticket is only about $8.00 or so. Combined with River tubing, will run you closer to under $15.00.
Five star golfing exists just five minutes north in Sommerset. Look up National golf and country club in Sommerset WI. New Richmond has the most golf courses per capita in the United States. It does happen that when I get a reunion type group, they ask me to arrive before they leave so that they can have have me take a group photo of everybody in their group at the same time in front of the water and trees. Can look very professional that way. There is also a waterfall for taking special photos in front of in Willow River State Park located in between north Hudson and Bass Lake.
'Outside the tree house the bright, busy sounds of day had given way to the soft, soothing sounds of night-the quiet conversation of frogs and toads, the soft cry of the owl, the sigh of the night wind. And if you listened very hard, you could almost hear the softest sounds of all-the sound of lightning bugs switching their lights on and off, on and off. Stan and Jan Berenstain
GET OUT INTO NATURE!
When we are sick, a view of nature can help us heal faster. When we are distracted, a view of nature can help us regain our focus. And when we are stressed, images of a natural landscape can slow our heart rates, relax our muscles, and help us feel calm again. Get outside today-or even just look out the window-to feel happier. *Plan a play date at a nearby nature center or park. Let the kids discover what lives under rocks, logs or what lives up in the trees. Build a fort. No equipment necessary. *Spend the weekend on a family hike at a park you haven't yet visited. Block out time now and you'll fell better later. *Sunshine is a well known antidote to depression and time outdoors can be successful in reducing anxiety, impulsivity and hyperactivity.
'Try a Wilderness Vacation! A lovely cabin complete with a Canoe by beautiful Crystal Lake'!
'Ah, said Papa, painting beautiful word pictures, 'to wake with the rising sun and catch our breakfast from a crystal clear lake!'
'To bathe in its sparkling water!'
'To snack on delicious wild berries as we tramp the mountain trails!' 'To gaze at the beauty of a lakeside sunset!' 'Then, to sleep through the peace and quiet of the solitude and privacy far from the noise of traffic and neighbors' barking dogs!'
It all sounded great to the cubs. 'What kind of fish will we catch, Papa?' asked Brother. Walleye and Bass, no doubt, the St.Croix County DNR keeps the lake stocked with plenty of Walleye and Bass, he answered with supreme confidence. 'After all', exclaimed Papa, Bass Lake Is the cleanest lake in all of St. Croix County' Stan and Jan Berenstain 1989;
Bring Your Own Life Jackets, and play in a private natural environment. Play cards, listen to the sound of lightning as rain pours down in summer storms. Huddle up close together and experience the light and sound it creates until the storm passes. Few children get any of these kind of memories as small affordable summertime cabins are leveled, and wooded areas are stripped for lawns.
