Place In The Pines
Whether you to like to snowshoe in the deep snow of winter or look for wild flowers in the spring, there is a Place In The Pines for you all the seasons of the year.
Cabin Fever brought my husband and me to this beautiful place in 1999. We had always dreamed of owning a cabin in northern Minnesota or Wisconsin. Then, we came across a ‘for sale’ ad in the Sunday paper for parcels of land with a 40 year old Red Pines plantation on the crystal clear water of the Eau Claire River in northern Wisconsin. Within 2 weeks, it was ours and it wasn’t long before we were searching for house plans. Two years later we built our “northwoods vacation home,” with the help of the contractor, friends and family.
Since the house was built, we have taken numerous “mini vacations” and still haven’t seen or experienced everything there is to see and do. A family favorite is tubing down the Eau Claire River. We drop off about a mile up the road at the dam and in about an hour and a half float right up to the shore of our property. Canoeing is fun as well. If you are adventurous, the Brule River is only a half hour away, where you can rent a canoe or kayak and meet the challenge of the 5 star rapids.
The back porch is a great place to relax and watch the hummingbirds fight over the feeder or maybe see some deer stroll across the back yard at dusk and dawn. We even spotted a black bear a few times in the area. In the early morning before everyone is up, a bike ride to the golf course just up the road a mile is amazing - so quiet and serene and thrilling to see the herds of deer grazing and hear the birds chirping.
We invite you to enjoy a mini-vacation at our Place in the Pines, where your family and friends can enjoy a peaceful time away or for the more adventurous ones to explore the many activities in the area.
