Northwoods Retreat


Luella Doss is opening her family cabin on Trout Lake to family and friends for retreats which enable spiritual renewal. Here are some of the many opportunities which visitors to the cabin might delight in exploring: the arts, crafts, reading, quilting and other fiberarts, meditation, yoga, watersports, meditation, and existing. Luella will most likely be present, if needed, to help you find your way.


The main cabin and the apartment above the boathouse are only a few steps from the beach and the perfectly clear fresh water with a pristinely clean, sandy bottom. The cabins, known as “Princess Pine” are nestled on the far North Bay of Trout Lake. Wading -depth water out to the end of dock delights those who prefer to acquire their “water legs” in their own time. Visitors who are avid swimmers can indulge in an exciting leap into the deep water off the end of the dock. Whatever your inclination, a dip in the “healing waters” of Trout Lake is a must.


The 2-3 season apartment is appointed with a full kitchen, bath, bedroom with six bunk beds (12 twin beds) featuring an open concept family/dining/kitchen with a gas fireplace. A large three-season screened leisure living room cozies up to the tree tops with the sparkle of the water glinting through the trees. Access to a large freezer and washer/dryer is available.


The year-round vertical log cabin main lodge has two bedrooms: a master bedroom with a full-size bed and an upstairs bedroom with four full-size built-in bunk beds, featuring a sleeping porch overlooking the lake. Although recently remodeled, the cabin has retained the charm of its earlier 1920’s resort cabin architecture featuring all gabled pine ceilings.

There is a full bath on the main floor and a half bath on the second floor. A double oven, two dishwashers and two large sinks create a state-of-the-art kitchen. The kitchen/family/great room features a majestic massive beam overhead, as well as a wood burning fireplace graced on each side with convertible queen-size futon sofas. A large leather ottoman/coffee table converts easily to a twin –size bed. The large cabin can cozily accommodate 8-15 visitors.


Wide tables and counter spaces are available in both the apartment and the cabin (in the warm season- in the main level of the boathouse) to accommodate visitors with those needs. Luella’s stash of fabrics and notions in a wide variety of textures, fibers and color ranges are available at a reasonable cost.
