it's cabin time™ in Balsam Lake
Looking for Balsam Lake lodging and cabins in Polk County WI? for history buffs, parents, antique lovers, food lovers, and outdoor enthusiasts? Balsam Lake will satisfy your vacation appetite. A Balsam Lake cabin puts you right in the middle of the fun. 4-season area vacation rentals are just 50 miles NE of St. Paul. Welcome to the St. Croix Riverway, historic rivertowns, and spectacular scenery. From the cabin, you can explore the ATV trails.
Choosing between a summer or winter getaway? This is a hard one. With hiking and biking being so popular, the Gandy Dancer, Stower Seven Lakes, and Ice Age trails are hard to beat. The area has always been known as kayak and canoe country, but did you know there are 8 golf courses for the land lovers? During winter, the Ice Age Hiking Trail transforms into a fabulous destintion for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Polk County is home to over 350 miles of groomed snowmobile trails too. A northwoods Wisconsin vacation rental is the ticket to great memories. We call the entire experience "Cabin Time".
You’ll likely explore the Gandy Dancer Trail, so here’s the scoop: 98 mile recreational trail; runs from from St. Croix Falls north to Superior; it was a railroad grade (hence the name - the crew that built and maintained the tracks were called Gandy Dancers); it’s a hard surfaced trail; the south section is for biking and hiking; the north section is for hiking, biking and ATV. Bike passes are available at tourism centers.
