Scenic Island Cabin -- Rusty Buckets Farm

Lakefront cabin in Omro with patio
Abundant wildlife, calming lake views, and quiet, starry nights. Accessible only by boat, this beautiful but bare-bones cabin is for the real adventurers. The main property (which includes 160 acres of protected wildlife habitat) is a short paddle away, giving the perfect balance of convenience and romantic seclusion. Although rough around the edges, the cabin's unique location makes it a highly rewarding stay. The natural privacy and minimalist style are perfect for anyone who enjoys the outdoors.

Includes a fire pit & wood, gas stove, solar panel for electricity, and separate latrine, and will be stocked with bedding, firewood, propane/cooking equipment, oil lamps/flashlights, water, bug spray/sunscreen, towels, toilet paper, etc.

A canoe is also provided for you.

The pride of our family for 6 generations, our farm is centrally located in Wisconsin's Fox Valley and boasts a rich natural history. You may uncover a real arrowhead, 19th-century farm-equipment, or an animal you've never seen before. Just look around!

So writers, readers, photographers, retreaters;
couples, lovers, and friends;
adventurers, budget vacationers;
festival-goers and business travelers;
outdoors-people, nature-lovers;
foodies, hipsters;
snowbirds and empty-nesters:
This place is for you!
