About the property

2 Bedroom Cabin In Private Wooded Setting - 25 Mins To Wisconsin Dells

Our cabin was completely remodeled in 2009 and is for those who enjoy the natural outdoors and related sports activities. The cabin is purposefully set up to unplug and get away from the hectic modern life. Basic Wi Fi and electronics are provided but it is not our focus. It is a well maintained, air conditioned home near Buckhorn Bridge and beautiful Buckhorn State Park on a very wooded lot that has a large clearing in back to play or relax by the fire. Well behaved dogs welcome. Convenient rural location. 2 bedrooms (1 Queen bed and the other has 2 twin beds). Sunroom has full size futon. Wood burning stove. Basic Wi Fi. Sits back from the road in the center of 1.5 acres.

Kitchen has plenty of room and full sized appliances and is stocked with cooking utensils and many seasonings so guests don't have to pack so heavily. No dishwasher.

Living room with sofa, Sony Bravia 32' LCD TV, DVD/VHS player with two easy chairs, and wood burning stove. Firewood is provided all season. Good selection of movies.

Our sunroom with it's vaulted ceiling has lots of windows to enjoy wooded view, sounds of nature and the evening breezes. Several books, game table with plenty of games to choose from, ceiling fan and radio.

1 bath with shower.

Large private wooded lot with fire pit (firewood provided). Horse shoe pit, grill (propane provided).

Cabin is surrounded by woods and feels secluded but yet it's close enough to run out for things you might have forgotten to bring along and to the popular family friendly Buckhorn Grill and Bar..

Great place to reconnect with your family, friends in a setting that feels like home. Even family pets will feel like they have had a vacation! If you or your family relies heavily on Wi Fi internet and data sharing and movie streaming we are not likely the best fit for your travels.

There are several access points to beautiful Castle Rock Lake, many boat landings and swimming beaches. Local rural convenient store selling many grocery items, serves freshly made pizzas, packages liquor, fishing licenses and gas. Buckhorn Grill and Bar is a casual dining restaurant that has good food and service. Dining is available inside and out with lots of parking, play area and fire pits. They have a wonderful Sunday barbeque.

Our cabin is off of County Rd G near both the Buckhorn State Park and Buckhorn Bridge which is on on Castle Rock Lake. All of this is within a five minute rural drive from the cabin.

Wisconsin Dells and a large shopping outlet are just about 30 minutes south on I-90.

Red Hen Antiques is a very good store north of the cabin on Rt 58 in Necedah and Downtown Baraboo has many antiques and specialty shops.

Looking for a place to unplug and unwind? The UnDells Cabin is just the place and best suited for small families, two couples or groups of 4 wanting to get together.

About Janette Lavender

We currently live 45 minutes west of Chicago and have been visiting the Castle Rock Lake area for about three decades. We continue to boat, fish, swim, hike and kayak near Castle Rock lake regularly.

Janette Lavender purchased this house in 2005

Why Janette Lavender chose Necedah

We fell in love with the area surrounding Castle Rock Lake as campers some 30 years ago and plan to call it home very soon. The area and it's friendly people have drawn us closer over the years and it feels like home to us. Just a weekend at our cabin can make one feel as if they have been away long enough to relax and return to their busy lives refreshed. We thought if we loved the area so much that others would too and so we decided to purchase this cabin. The UnDells Cabin has proven to be very popular with our guests as they reconnect with family and friends. It is a good rural location for those wanting to relax and enjoy nature or even for the more adventurous that want to visit the Wisconsin Dells which is only 30 minutes away. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we have.

What makes this house unique

Whether it's fishing, birding, boating, hiking, ATV, dining, shopping, golfing, antiquing, horseback riding or taking day trips into the Dells, Baraboo, Necedah Wildlife Refuge or head north to Black River falls to ride the ATV trail, there is so much to do to satisfy different types of interests.

Amazing cabin experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and it worked out super great location wise for us - near the local campground. Cozy with lots of room. Jan was amazing to work with and we can't wait for September to stay again.

Great Cabin but Close to Trains

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was very cozy and well decorated. The owner thought of everything and it was stocked with cards and games and a ton of videos if you need them. We cooked while we were there for a fall getaway in October 2017, and found that everything we needed was in the cupboards. It was a special treat to have a tasty bottle of wine waiting for us the first night! We really loved the beds and the pillows as they were very comfortable. The only drawback was the trains. This cabin is situated 1 block at the most from a crossing. The first night we were there (Thursday), the trains woke me up at 11:55, 4:55, and 6:55. And, yes, the horn was blown each time to signal the crossing of the road because they have to by law. In the morning, I found that everyone was woken by the trains, but we all went quickly back to sleep. So if you area light sleeper, be aware of this. We didn't hear as many on Saturday night. It could have been because we were getting used to it, but it could be that there are fewer on the weekends. I'm glad I stayed because it was such a cute cabin, but I don't think I'll book again because of the trains. There are too many other options at this price.

Owner's Response: While it is true that sometimes the nearby trains come through more than once during the night, it seems to be very sporadic and they move through quickly. Most guest feedback has been that they have little or no impact on their overall experience and our repeat guests like the rural feel. We are glad you found our cabin so comfortable and well stocked. Thanks for staying with us!

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Wooded lot with plenty of room for our son and us to play. As to cabin - it was welcoming and cozy, rustic but not old. Owners have good taste as it was nicely decorated. There was plenty of room for three of us and I think it sure would have been doable if another couple joined. Beds were soft and kitchen stocked. There was Internet, but rather slow - we couldn't stream the Hockey game that we hoped to watch, but I guess it helped us enjoy the outdoors more :). The passing train gave it country romance in the evening and my son loved watching it thru the trees - not really a disturbance while sleeping at night, though, I probably would have opened the windows at night for fresh air if the train tracks were not as close. The train would certainly not be a reason not to rent this place again as the price was reasonable and everything else lovely.

nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

cottage is great and nicely furnished and clean.

Location is not that great - near storage place and train tracks

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at our cabin. Our cabin is a convenient 5 minutes rural drive to the lake, several boat launches, the Buckhorn Café, state park and Buckhorn Store where you can also get gas without having to drive to local towns. The nearby storage building is very typical of many lake vacation areas and houses a few seasonal visitor boats or campers inside and does not get much traffic.

Very Undellish!

  • 4 of 5

The owner Jeanette was great to work with. Answered any and all of my questions promptly! The cabin was very clean and air conditioning was on when we walked in the door! The beds were super comfortable. In front of the cabin looked as though someone was building? Not sure what it was but another cabin would def be a bonus.

Thank you for the hospitality!

Castle Rock Lake
Car: necessary

We are a few doors from County Rd G and Marina Lane in Necedah, WI. The lake is a few blocks from the cabin to the east. There is pier fishing access. Access to closest boat launch is 2 minutes to Osprey Landing for smaller boats and shore fishing or in 5 minutes there are several larger launches and swimming beaches south of the cabin near and in the State Park. Rent Kayaks/canoes too. Fish from the Buckhorn Bridge and off Water Street or there are many other access points to the lake in which to shore fish.

Take your dogs for a swim within 5 minutes off of Water Street which is South and West of the cabin. There are several public bays with more private type swimming areas for families to enjoy a picnic for the day. No picnic tables or other amenities just beach, water and woods.

We are in a rural location. No traffic lights or traffic to mention nearby but there is just what you need as far as necessities at the Buckhorn Store within 5 minutes drive. They have gas, beverages, great pizza and munchies. Have a beer there while you wait. Also get your hunting or fishing licenses there too. 2 good restaurants close by serve anything from breakfast to lunch, to fish fries or surf and turf. Sandy beaches, boat launches and the Buckhorn State Park all within 5 minutes.

Buckhorn Café specializes in polish food. They have great fish fries. You can eat inside or out. Great pig roasts there on Sundays. Many TV's to watch favorite sports. There is a nice stone fireplace in the bar, booths and tables. Bring your dog with you too if you eat outside!

We have 2 boat dealerships within 15 minutes.

Last but not least the Wisconsin Dells is 30 minutes easy drive to the south on I-90.

Need more information. Don't hesitate to ask!
