Tucked in the lush Chequamegon National Forest on the secluded shores of Spider Lake in Ashland County, DJ's Northwoods Escape offers a spacious, quiet Northern Wisconsin retreat only a few miles northeast of Clam Lake. Set amongst a forest of mixed pine and hardwoods, the location evokes memories of childhood treehouses and family getaways to the lake.
This 4 bedroom, 2 bath lake home enjoys a gentle elevation to the lakeshore; an open layout; and the room to kick back and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Northwoods. Spider Lake in Ashland County, Wisconsin has a well deserved reputation as a good fishing lake with a maximum depth of approximately 25 feet and 103 acres. The lake is home to a variety of species including bluegill, crappie, smallmouth bass and walleye. Whether you fish from the dock, leisurely explore the lake by boat or relax in the sun in the grassy yard, you have the room to roam. The large wraparound deck offers another fine spot to relax in the sun and you can enjoy the breezes blowing through the screened in porch that connects via sliding doors with the living room.
The generous interior floor plan provides ample room for everyone with its open kitchen complete with plenty of countertop work space and island, stove, oven, full size refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher. The adjacent dining room table offers a lovely lakeview. The kitchen and dining area flows into the living room anchored by an impressive stone fireplace. Choose between several comfortable chairs or the couch when the time comes to unwind in front of the fire or TV. Walkout from the living room to the screened porch and listen for the loons or wolves calling or the elk bugling in the fall.
The two bedrooms on the main level include a lakeside master bedroom suite with a king sized bed and an attached full bath. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed. There are two bedrooms on the lower level including one with a bunk bed (single over double) and another twin bed. The other lower level bedroom has a double bed.
While you can certainly squirrel yourself away at this home, the location is ideal for making day trips to nearby Copper Falls State Park in Mellen, the south shore of Lake Superior including the communities of Ashland and Bayfield, the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, and the attractions of Hayward, Wisconsin. There are numerous hiking, biking, fall color tour, ATV and snowmobile trails nearby as well as restaurants, convenience stores, golf courses and shopping.
Additional sleeping space is available in the spacious loft bedroom above the garage. The loft is connected to the house via an elevated walkway and features two bunk beds, double bed and enough space to truly spread out and unpack during your stay!
