Our place in Wisconsin

I know it is taking me months to talk about our trip way back in July.  Oh well…  Anyhoo this post is about our final destination.  This is the place we honeymooned at. 🙂  We try to go back every couple of years.  It is soooo beautiful up there and I wish we could stay, but I know when the snows come, we would wish we could leave.  LOL

The house was built by my husband’s grandfather’s half-sister. When she passed, he got most of the property, the rest was given to the government for preservation. The roads were built, literally, by this half-sister. She bought a road machine to build this roads. That machine is still in the garage. Everything was made from trees in that area, all by hand, no electrical equipment. I’ll have to find out the year it was finished.

The photo below gets us all excited when it reach it. It is the little creek than annouces we have arrived. The property on the right, belongs to my husbands family. Every year, we get in a canoe and paddle down this creek. We can even paddle through the tunnel under the road to get to the other side. We usually can find a beaver dam somewhere.

We will visit the outside of the cabin area first. 🙂

This is the side entrance. It goes into a small porch that houses extra kitchen supplies, freezer, garbage cans, etc. It goes into the kitchen.

The is the back entrance. On the left is a large screened in porch and we eat there almost everyday for lunch and dinner.

This is the driveway to the house. As you drive down you can see on the right a large garage, then the care takers home, then the house.

Along the drive way and out at the street, Forget-me-nots line both sides. All the flowers were planted by the half-sister and they still come out every year. 🙂

Here is one of the boats on the dock at the boathouse.
