Start Line Inn welcomes you to enjoy 4 Seasons in the Woods in our luxury cabin rental in Cable, Wisconsin.  The cabin rental is a rare gem in Wisconsin’s Northwoods with attention to detail and meticulous craftsmanship.  Lodging designed with the needs of active guests and families in mind.  The cabin’s living space is open and gracious with high vaulted ceiling and picture windows that overlook the Birkie Trail and forest.  The cabin walls were built using reclaimed wood, helping us stay Green.

The gourmet kitchen, with peninsula concrete counter top, is the perfect spot for enjoying meals with family and friends. Adhering to a training diet or maintaining healthy eating for the family should be easy during your stay with us.  We have you covered from dawn to dusk, from morning coffee grinder & pot through evening corkscrew.  We provide complimentary coffee beans and assorted teas.  There is WiFi and WiFi enabled Smart TV in the cabin. The entry area, with ample closet, has comfortable bench seating and overlooks the trails. Look out the window and anticipate your day playing in the woods.

THE SLEEPING AREAS and BATH

We designed the cabin rental with an open floor plan to maintain spacious feel and flexibility.  We can accommodate 4-8 guests depending on sleeping preferences.  There are 2 full beds that are separated from each other and from the living area by privacy curtains.  The living area in the cabin has a queen-sized sleeper sofa.   The loft has a full futon and a cozy sitting area.  In the entry, there is a day bed perfect for daydreaming or could pinch hit as an overflow sleeping space.  The full bath, shower & tub, is beautifully designed using reclaimed tiles in creative mosaic.

Sauna with seating for several guests.

  • “Elizabeth’s home it is perfectly situated for mountain biking or cross country skiing. Check-in was so smooth, and Elizabeth was incredibly friendly. And of course, most importantly, the place is beautiful – everything you need to call at home, and sparkling clean.”

  • “My four night stay at Elizabeth & Mike’s was the most fun, relaxing, delicious, exhausting and rejuvenating I’ve had in a very long time. The cabin is lovely…comfortable, quaint, nicely decorated and detailed…I felt very much at home walking in. Elizabeth had many wonderful suggestions about local things to do —I mountain-biked (for the first time) there, on a really great “easy” (but challenging, at least for me) course I’d never have found without her, hiked a section of the most beautiful North Country Trail (that I didn’t even know existed until she told me about it—it’s 4000 miles long!!) and am already yearning to go back to enjoy the winter “silent sports”, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, and even winter biking (who knew??). And speaking of bikes, Mike’s knowledge, expertise (and bike repair shop, on premises), and enthusiasm for riding added tons to the experience (me: “fat tire?? What’s that?” Mike: (most kindly and gently): “ahhh, you have much to learn, grasshopper.” (paraphrase) ). And oh yeah, there’s canoeing, kayaking and fishing, too. The local restaurants (Sawmill Inn, Tillie’s Pies, Rivers’ Restaurant), also recommended by Elizabeth, we’re also stellar…yum!! All in an EXTREMELY beautiful part of the world. Needless to say, I’ll be back, already having a hard time waiting to return.”

  • “Really clean, stylish cabin at the start of the Birkie. Great appliances, nice views, clean and comfortable. Plenty of space for the family to spread out as well. I’d say this has to be the best spot to stay in the area. The “boutique” bike shop below the cabin was well equipped, and I was able to pick up a tool bag for my son’s Top Fuel before our second day of biking.”

  • “Wonderful Northwoods escape! Every morning is a new opportunity to explore trails, rivers, local cuisine. Hosts are friendly, thoughtful, and extremely knowledgeable about bikes and nordic skiing. Remember, there is no bad weather, only improper gear.”

  • Our family stayed here for a long weekend. Great hosts and great cabin with convenient access to the mountain bike trails. Having the bike shop on site was great as I needed a new shift cable on my daughter’s bike and Mike was able to take care of it for me. We will definitely be back.

  • “I am almost afraid to tell everyone how fabulous this place is because it will be so booked up, but really, this place is fantastic. If you mountain bike, road bike, cross country ski, snow shoe and/or hike, you will LOVE this place. It is perfectly done, casual, really nice accommodations with feeling like you have to worry about being super careful all the time. Totally done with sports people in mind with a wide entry way and more. Both owners Elizabeth and Mike are the nicest, best hostess and host you can imagine. Having a bike and ski shop right there is a huge bonus. It is truly the back woods perfect retreat.”

  • “This is a phenomenal place to stay!! We stayed at the cabin as part of a “girl’s weekend” and loved the space, the amenities, and the hospitality. Elizabeth was easy to communicate with and had some great recommendations for area attractions as well as helpful tips for making the most of our stay. The cabin itself is spacious, charming, and very comfortable! I would definitely recommend staying here if you have the chance.”
