About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath Log Cabin With Nearly 3 Acres Of Privacy On A 1600 Acre Lake

The "North" begins exactly 1 mile beyond the point where you leave the stresses and worries of your daily life behind...

Whispering Pines is a private year round lake home with nearly 3 acres of towering pine trees and 175 feet of lake shore on the Minong Flowage, one of Wisconsin's best fishing and boating lakes. Whether you are looking for a quiet get away or a fun filled gathering, this rustic log cabin provides 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms that easily sleeps 10 guests. The private grounds with a screened porch and paver patio with fire pit are perfect to enjoy quiet evenings overlooking breathtaking lake views and sunsets.

The cabin has 3 levels, each with a separate bedroom and bathroom. Every level offers a private space with cabin themed furniture and entertainment, allowing guests to have their own space while providing 2 large gathering spaces with fireplaces and entertainment.

The main level includes a 2 story vaulted knotty pine great room with a wood burning fireplace and two story windowed view of the lake and pines. A large kitchen with stainless appliances and adjacent dining area easily accommodates groups of 10, making cooking and entertaining simple. A 42" flat screen TV with Direct TV, a sound system and DVD player are available for watching movies or listening to your favorite music. There are two private bedrooms, with a shared bath, tucked away from the great room for guests on this level. A separate laundry room is also provided.

The upper level is a private loft with a master suite and sitting area overlooking the lake. The cabin themed furniture, CD player and book shelf offer a quiet place to read a book or take a late afternoon nap.

The lower level offers another great room gathering space with wet bar, gas fireplace and game table. It's knotty pine finish with beamed ceilings provide an "up north" cabin feel while opening to spectacular lake views. A separate bedroom with bath are tucked away from the great room providing privacy for guests staying on this level.

The spacious cabin grounds are what make this cabin unique. A screened porch and large deck overlooking the lake are great spaces to sit and enjoy the evening. Larger distances to nearby cabins provide a private and serene setting for your get-away. You can hear the pines whisper in the breeze, loons calling on the lake and can often see eagles flying over the property. A new paver patio and grassy area are perfect for night time fires in the fire pit or playing yard games. The deck with Weber grill, Adirondack furniture and patio table with umbrella are perfect for summer grilling. Wide timber stairs take you down to easy access to the lake with a private dock available for fishing, swimming or hosting your boat. Pontoon rental is also available. Several bars and restaurants available on the lake provide easy access to dining and entertainment when you don't feel like cooking.

Located in the Hayward area, there is something for everyone, from skiing and snowmobiling in the winter, to ATV riding, fishing, swimming and shopping in the summer. From fall colors, to quiet snow filled winter evenings or summer fun on the lake, Whispering Pines has everything that you need to get away and "leave your troubles behind".

Whispering Pines is available for rentals with a 2-day minimum stay during non-peak times ( Sept - May). Rentals during the summer however are very popular and reserved for week long vacation stays only (Friday evening to Friday morning). A Pontoon is available to rent for your complete stay at an additional cost of $200 per day or $600 per week. Our check out time of 11am and check in time of 4pm allows us time to clean and prepare the cabin for our next guests between visits. Nominal cleaning costs are included in the cabin rental price. A damage deposit is requested to help protect our home from any repairs or excessive cleaning that may be required.

About Dustin Persson

Originally from Wisconsin, we recently relocated to Northern Virginia for a work transfer. We lived and worked in the Twin Cities for over 30 years and only recently built our cabin up in Minong. Our goal was to have a place to get away with family and friends. We love the outdoors and life in the north. We still come back several times a year but the commute has gotten a little longer these days. We are happy to be able to share Whispering Pines with others who share our love of family, friends and the peace of getting away up north.

Dustin Persson purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Dustin Persson chose Minong

We built Whispering Pines in 2010 as a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and to have a place to gather with friends and family. We chose the Minong Flowage because of its beauty and unique proximity to such a wide range of activities including hiking, skiing, canoeing, ATV trail riding, snowmobiling and all of the shopping and activities available in the Hayward lakes area. We have good friends on the lake nearby.

What makes this cabin unique

Built on nearly 3 acres, with over 175 feet of shoreline, Whispering Pines offers more privacy that many cabins in the area. Too often we want to get away, only to find ourselves shoulder to shoulder with someone in a cabin next door. Much effort was placed into having both quiet spaces for individuals and larger gathering spaces for the larger family or group activities. The towering pine trees are truly beautiful (and yes they do whisper!). While there are many places nearby to explore, we have found that everything that you might want or need is available at the cabin or on the lake.

Perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

You know, when you see something online you are never quite sure if it will live up to the billing. Well, Whispering Pines surely did for me and my crew this winter weekend. After driving 7 hours it was a truly great place to stay. Now, I am only interested to see it in the summer. Highly recommended.

Very Nice Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for a couples snowmobile trip and everybody loved it. Very nice and new inside. 3 bathrooms is a plus for large groups. We would definitely stay here again. I hope they get more snow.

New Year's Getaway

  • 4 of 5

A great place for four couples to spend New Year's Eve. The layout of the house made it easy for everyone to have their own space. Having 3 bathrooms was a plus. The kitchen was well furnished and made it easy to prepare our meals. The selection of DVDs provided a nice diversion from the -20 temperatures outside. It was just a little over a 2 hours drive from St. Paul making it really convenient for a weekend trip. It looks like this home would be beautiful in the summer!

Beautiful property and cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here to celebrate Thanksgiving with our family so we could spread out and enjoy some time up north. The cabin is beautiful, with a perfect layout for four couples. One couple with a newborn stayed in the basement and no one heard the baby wake up for night feedings. The two bedrooms on the middle floors were cozy and perfect for two other couples, and another couple stayed in the loft, which had tons of space. We didn't even use the futon in the loft. Three bathrooms made it easy for showering. The best part about this place is the open great room, kitchen, and dining room that overlooks the lake. We cooked a thanksgiving meal here, and the kitchen had all of the supplies we needed, and enough seating for all of us at the table! We were able to view two beautiful sunsets over the lake! Only minor issues were that there wasn't explanations for using the fireplace before we arrived, so we didn't have wood with us to burn a fire. Also, we couldn't get the direct tv to work in the basement, and had to figure out the gas fireplace without any directions. Also, we couldn't get the lights in the three season porch to work, and the front door kept opening on it's own because it was difficult to shut.
