I felt immediately at home when I walked into Cabin Fever. There was something just so calming about it. Maybe it was because of the location—down a back road in the Northwoods, just far enough away from town where the cell reception faded and the sounds of nature took over. Or maybe it was the look and feel of the place… The living area had a vaulted ceiling, a fireplace surrounded by wood paneling, and a plush armchair nestled near a window. There was a three-season porch overlooking Big Kitten Lake with floor to ceiling windows to boot. The whole property radiated coziness and it felt like the epitome of a northern Wisconsin cabin. And for the next three days, it was my home away from home.

I want to give a huge thank you to Cabin Fever owners Don & Judy, Wisconsin Travel Best Bets, and the Boulder Junction Chamber of Commerce for organizing my stay here. It was the perfect place to stay while exploring the area!
