Cabin with 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, game room, sandy beach on Shell Lake

Enjoy the sunset views from the deck of this beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 full bath Cabin on 2600 acre Shell Lake. Fish off the dock, play in the sand, watch the sunset, hang by the fire, have some fun in the game room, take walks, bike or just relax.***Summer rates are $500 per night with a minimum 5 night stay and Fall/Winter/Spring rates are $380 per night with a minimum 3 night stay.

Shell Lake is a 2600 acre lake that has very good clarity. Wonderful to swim in. We have a large sandy beach and as you walk into the water its gradual and does not get deep until past our dock. At the end of our dock the water is about waist high or so. The town of Shell Lake is 3 miles away. It is across the lake from the cabin. The area around the cabin in very wooded and East Lake Drive is great to take walks around the area or bike etc.. Located within blocks of the Wisconsin ATV/Snowmobile trails of the Indianhead region of northern Washburn County. Shell Lake is know for Walleye, Bass, Northern Pike and Muskie fishing. Shell Lake is about a 2 hour scenic drive from the northeast side of the Twin Cities.

The ultimate place for building memories on our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with everything about this cabin. The first thing I really appreciated was how clean and new everything was. We had 4 young kids with us and this place was so perfect, the sandy shallow beach could not have been better for them. We also loved taking the kids out on the paddle boat in the clear water and all of us adults enjoyed learning to paddle board, so fun! While up, we had one rainy day but it was fine as there was plenty to do inside too. Other then the game room, there was a closet full of games, puzzles, and toys, video games and a movie collection. And don't worry if you forgot something the Christensens kept things very well stocked. You can tell a lot of thought and care has gone into this home We will definitely be coming back to build more memories.

Comfortable, well designed & beautiful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Lots of great space in this lakefront cabin. Privacy and abundant rooms for lounging, decks for viewing the lake and having coffee and meals, and a nicely furnished game room on the lower level. Quiet and open, we really enjoyed our visit. Close to everything you could want to do on vacation. Immaculately maintained.

Beautiful wooded area to walk, bike, 4 wheel along east lake drive. Our favorite place is the Potter's Shed in Shell Lake. They have music on Friday or Saturday nights during the summer and a cute little resturant for lunch open May to Sept. You can paint pottery with your kids, its so much fun. Even dads and grandparents have fun doing this. Paint pottery area is open year round, check with them on hours. Also a beautiful store filled with pottery and creative one a kind items open year round.

Monday Nights during the summer is At The Lake in the Shell Lake Pavilion. At 7:30 pm they have free music. Shell Lake Arts Center offers free concerts and camps for kids by Master Teachers. Check out the Wood Carving Museum and Washburn Historical Society Museum in Shell Lake and the Railroad Memories Museum in Spooner. Tour Shell Lake Clover Meadow Winery, do wine tasting and have appetizers too. Head to Turtle Lake Casino 1/2 hour away for concerts and gambling fun. Go see a movie in historic downtown Spooner at the old Palace Theater. Have dinner at Lakeview Bar & Grill, or hotdogs and ice cream at Scoop N Brew or breakfast at Peggy's Place all located on main street Shell Lake. You can boat across the lake and dock your boat and walk to the restaurants. Another favorite is Bistro 63 for dinner in Barronett about 10 minute drive. Also lots of places to eat and shop at in Spooner. A favorite for fun coffee/tee drinks and lite lunch or dinner with wine/beer is Dock Coffee in Spooner.
