We purchased this cabin in June, 2019. It is an amazing property, consisting of almost 1000 ft of shoreline on 8 wooded acres located on a peninsula point. The original cabin is a log home built in the 1940s but it has been well preserved over the years. The logs are all original, all we had to do was re-stain the outside and add some chinking on the inside. It has a beautiful wood burning stone fireplace with wood floors. In 1985, a large addition was constructed that is attached to the log structure. The new addition included a full kitchen, master bedroom, dining room, 2 full size baths & a huge screen porch on the main level and 2 more bedrooms with full bath on a lower level. Also in 1985, a new foundation was added under the log structure.

Since we acquired the property, we have made huge improvements to the property. The long circular driveway has been upgraded. The drive in is gorgeous with dense, mature oak and maple trees with plenty of parking. The area around the cabin has been totally re-landscaped with large stone block retaining walls, a flat grassy area for yard games and a fire pit. The stairs to the water have been replaced with new timbers and flat landing areas. If you wish to not use the stairs, there is an electric tram that can transport you from the cabin to the lake shore. There is a new deck that is 25 X 16 attached to the cabin. The screen porch has been totally renovated with new stain, new lighting and ceiling fan, new flooring and new screening/railing. The screen porch has direct access from the master bedroom and the kitchen/DR. It is 18 x 14 and has great lake views. There is a functioning boat house at the shore that our guests may use. It has a flat roof so we are making a view deck on top of the boat house with rail system. Inside the home, we have refreshed all the rooms, upgraded the electric to 220 service, added spray foam insulation under the log cabin, added luxury vinyl tile to the DR, master bedroom and kitchen. Kitchen appliances are all new including a gas stove. The full bath on the main level has a new tile floor and new sink. Lighting has been upgraded throughout the cabin. On the lower level, we have added entry tile, a new full size washer/dryer and a concrete patio below the screen porch. Of course, all the rooms will be refurbished, including a king bed in master, queen bed in lower bedroom and matching log twin beds in the other bedroom.

The cabin exterior is original log and 1 inch thick redwood on the addition. The cabin is incredibly private as it sits in the middle of untouched land along 1000 ft of lake shore. The lake shore is shallow at the shore gradually deepening with a hard sand bottom so its great for swimming. We have added a new dock, new boat lift, complimentary kayaks and a pontoon boat for rental. It is a beautiful cabin with the charm of yesterday but with all the newer comfort amenities, including high end bedding, internet & satellite TV.

Unique Features

First of all, we apologize for the pictures. We are remodeling so will update pictures as we complete rooms. Rest assured, it will be decorated and furnished beautifully. Moonbeam is a one of a kind property. The log cabin is preserved and provides you a little sense of history of the property. The addition has been updated across the board. The setting of 8 acres filled with mature trees on 1000 ft of frontage is amazing. The lake itself is a private lake with great fishing, clear waters and very little home development along the shoreline. Our shoreline is flat along the shore so you can easily access the lake, launch kayaks, or swim safely. The boat house is available for our guests for storage and the new viewing deck on top will be a favorite place to relax and listen to the loons. Access to the lake is easy via the tram that will take you from the cabin to the lake. From the cabin, you cannot see another home on the lake. It is that private! As private as it is, you are just 15 minutes away from the charming town of Stone Lake, which has numerous shops and restaurants. There is a great restaurant even closer on Big Sissabagama Lake, called Pine Ridge, famous for its legendary fish fry. You may ATV from the cabin to nearby ATV trails. We provide 2 complimentary kayaks, new boat dock, boat lift and a pontoon boat for rental. The pontoon boat is 24 ft, 60 HP Merc 4 stroke motor, with stereo and depth/fish finder and life jackets.

Things To Do

Check out the rich history of the lake on the following website: The cabin overlooks Big Island which use to be owned by the Stout family. Under their ownership, the island was called Moonbeam which was our inspiration for the cabin name. The island now is owned by the Nature Conservancy and is uninhabited but guests are allowed to explore. Keep in mind, Little Sissabagama is a 325 acre private lake. Their is no public boat launch but we have made arrangements for you to launch your boat at a private launch. Call Manager for details.

Hayward is located just 30 minutes to the north. Summit Lake game farm is located to the south.
