You’re looking at one of the most incredible getaway retreats or hunting camp to hit the market! This rustic “cabin in the woods” is located in the heart Wisconsin’s coveted Driftless Region encompassing 86+/- acres of whitetail dirt minutes from Soldiers Grove. This elaborate turnkey setup offers those looking for a weekend escape, family hunt gathering or relaxing vacation refuge a place to unwind. Here’s your chance to own a wildlife rich estate a million-dollar view.
Find this charming estate deeply tucked over half-mile off of HWY 171 nestled atop a towering ridge surrounded by dense forest. Follow Johns Drive, which leads to a short easement into your very own private utopia. At the end of a well-constructed gravel driveway that is a must see and constructed using breaker rock, gravel and culverts where needed. At the very top of a monumental ridge, you’ll find a cozy cabin. A loft provides overflow for extended family or friends. There’s a 40-gallon gas hot water heater, pressure tank in well and electric baseboard along with wood fireplace for heat. Cabin construction began around 1990 as a hunting camp and later added on to accommodate for more guest who loved to come and stay during hunting season and throughout different seasons of the year.
You’ll find a detached garage for your vehicle or toys. The estate provides instant necessities with a Drilled Well, Holding Tank, Phone Line as well as the big-ticket item of underground Electric that was brought all the way back into the property. There’s even a separate building specifically built for hobbyist maple syrup production! In years past the previous owner’s family would produce thousands of gallons of maple syrup they would tap & boiled down making for some remarkable memories which can be possibly carried on by the new buyer to continue the tradition.
This camp is composed of forested hills, ridges and bluffs that plunge into foggy valleys creating the most picturesque settings imaginable. The region is well-known for outdoor enthusiasts looking to chase trophy whitetail or fish the pristine waters of nearby Class 1 Trout Streams. The land boasts 4-ridges with two deep valleys providing an assortment of hunting and hiking options. The sights, sounds and appeal are truly heavenly all tucked back into an extremely private setting.
There’s been a slurry of giant whitetail taken off this estate, including a whopping 170+” mega-giant. Well-groomed trail system that leads to picture-perfect hunting setups. One of the most unique parts of this estate is that the northerly and southerly boundary is privately owned encompassing almost 600+/- acres of Managed Forest Land – Open. This means that you have the ability to expand your hunting with unbelievable access to neighboring grounds on both sides of you as long as the property remains in the program! ***Please note, the only public access to the Northerly MFL Open ground is over half mile away. This means anyone who wished to hunt the MFL Open land would have to enter from Stearns Road, traverse up a bluff, scale back down the bluff, climb up another bluff. That aggressive terrain and limited access have kept this pocket very low-key.
This estate is partially enrolled into 19-acres of MFL-Closed. With the next harvest scheduled for 2026. If you wish to reduce the taxes even more you have the option to enroll nearly the entire property, if desired. This would require a forester to write up a plan specific to your goals. Its estimated depending on what type of timber harvest you want to do to reach your goals the value is said to be $40,000-80,000 and more specifically harvest of ash trees per foresters 2019 timber cruise. Land was said to be last logged back in the late 1980’s which is aperient with all the stands of monster white and red oak trees towering the landscape. In addition, a comprehensive habitat and hunting plan was recently written by a certified land and habitat manager to enhance the property’s hunting + wildlife potential which consist of a nearly 60-page report that is detail oriented. This report will be provided upon new prior to a new buyer who takes ownership so they can implement the plan as desired.
Buyers must be pre-qualified and agent must be present during any showings, no exceptions.
This is truly a profound piece of recreational ground that is hard to put into words. The current taxes are around $5,673+/- and if more land is enrolled into Managed Forest Land – Closed program (unlike MFL-Open, MFL-Closed is private) you will get a significant reduction in taxes.
