Hygge House

From the Owner: Our cabin is small but mighty! It has the potential to sleep 6 but makes a great space for 2-4. We are just 2 miles away from CAMBA trailheads, 1/2 mile from the Namakagon River, and 2 miles from the town of Cable.

No television, Chemex coffee system, gas fireplace, blankets to snuggle, outside deck for enjoying the peace, yet only 2 miles from town if you’re craving some local action.

The trail system is ready for you to visit year round. You’re only a 20 minute drive from Hayward which is home to the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame, that giant fish museum that you definitely need to see and the cutest main street.
