New listing! Cozy lake cabin with access to lakefront pier & community firepit!

Located on the Manitowish River, just around the bend from Stone Lake, Cast Away is the ideal landing spot for Northwoods lake lovers who want to explore the Manitowish Chain of 10 Lakes by water. Hop in your rowboat from the private pier and head down the river, or put in your fishing boat at the small ramp at the resort to spend the day trying to catch the elusive muskellunge. End each evening with a homemade dinner on the grill, a fire in the community campfire pit just a short walk from the cabin, and the soothing sounds of the Northwoods lulling you to sleep. Cast Away is well suited for a small family or a couple looking to enjoy a weekend away with the family dog; the quaint kitchen and living space are great for a game of cribbage, and the front porch has just enough space for holding hands and gazing at the stars.

Cozy cabin right near the water. Very private.
Tammie S. Sep 2022
Great location, cute clean cabin. Very peaceful and love being on the river so there is less noise from speeding boats.

Nice house. If you bring a boat- you have to launch at a public landing. For the dock area- bring something to protect your boat from the metal pipes.

Ashley C. Aug 2021
Great cabin stocked with most big essentials needed. Bathroom is extremely small shower and stayed for six nights with a family of 4 and only two rolls of toilet paper. Lol! Great view and lake access. Rented a pontoon not know or having much information on a boat of there's you can supposedly use. Overall a great stay and would consider coming back.

This cabin is in a beautiful setting on the manitowish river within site of Stone lake. The kids caught fish of the dock all day long. Walking out the cabin door and jumping in the boat to explore this 10 lake chain is priceless. Cabin was clean and the beds were comfortable.

I grew up on the Manitowish Chain, always saw these cabins, needed a place to stay for a Family Memorial, great location, nice clean little cabin.
It was perfect.

The cabin had everything we needed. Loved the fact that we had a dock we could use.

Quiet, but not too far out to quickly run out to the store or dinner. It was a great place to relax.
