About the property

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

Very well maintained air conditioned home near Buckhorn Bridge and Buckhorn State Park on wooded lot. Well behaved dogs welcome. Convenient rural location. Room for a smaller camper with 50 amp electric service. Our home has 2 bedrooms (1 Queen bed and the other has 2 twin beds). Sunroom has full size futon. Wood burning stove. Wi Fi. Sits on 1.5 acres.

Our kitchen has full sized appliances and is stocked for guests who enjoy cooking.

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 long and we have a 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 with iPod dock.

1 bath with shower.

Large private wooded lot with fire pit (firewood provided) Feels like being on 5 acres as the cabin sits back on our lot and between neighboring woods. 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 very popular Buckhorn Cafe.

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!

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 Café is a great little restaurant that has good food and service. You can also bring your dog for outdoor dining. Since this could change at any time, please call in advance about bringing you dog.

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.

Looking for a place to unplug and unwind? The UnDells Cabin is just the place.

About Janette Lavender

My husband Steve and I 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 cabin in 2005

Why Janette Lavender chose Castle Rock Lake

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 great 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 cabin 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.

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.

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!

Perfect for a quiet family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We booked for a week, the location was perfect for us. Far enough to "get away from it all" but close enough to lots of things to do. Our dogs loved the dog beach in the nearby state park, we rented a boat for a day on Castle Rock Lake. Everyone we encountered was super friendly and helpful.

The cabin was spacious and clean, with everything we needed, including lots of movies to choose from. The instructions and directions were clear. (Google maps had no problem finding it on my android phone, service was a little sketchy in some places, but that wasn't a problem.) As some others mentioned, the train is a little jarring at first, but we got used to it quickly.

We had a great time, I would recommend- especially if you like outdoor and camping type activities without having to sleep in a tent.

Didn't like the trains so close.

  • 3 of 5

Nice cabin tucked away in the woods. But the train that comes through 3 to 4 times a day is a bit much, not to mention the loud whistles . Recommend bringing an ax, because burning large logs is difficult.

Owner's Response: Our fire wood which is provided at no charge, is typically many different sizes for longer burning time and some guests go through all of the smaller pieces first creating the imbalance in size logs. You certainly could have called us to bring some over. As soon as we notice this, the firewood is futher split into smaller pieces. Also, there are several local sources on the way to the cabin where bundles can be purchased in the event ours is not to a guests liking. I do not recommend bringing an axe to the property. We are sorry you did not like the train. It varies on how many days it comes through during the season. Generally not so much as you mention here and typically not for very long. It is a part of rural life in our area. Many guests like it commenting that it is quaint and their kids love it.

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!
