Property Details

Located in Ashland County, Town of Chippewa, sits 70 acres on a dead-end road. Primarily northern hardwoods with a fully functional mobile home w/electric, drilled well and Private Onsite Waste Treatment System (POWTS). The mobile home is currently used as a seasonal cabin but could easily be a 4 season home.

They say, proximity of a recreational property to specific water features is the main reason for purchase and continual use of a property. Well, Butternut lake is only 4 miles away and the landing is located on Cty B near the property. 10 minutes to Park Falls (home of ST. Croix Rods) and the Smith Lake flowage, 20 miles to the Turtle Flambeau flowage, just to name a few. Butternut Lake is a 983 acre lake located in Ashland, Price Counties. It has a maximum depth of 32 feet. Visitors have access to the lake from public boat landings. Fish species include Musky, Panfish, Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Walleye and Sturgeon.

The property itself, is comprised mostly of Hard Maple with a smattering of Poplar, Balsam, Spruce and Hemlock. The dark areas to the west are young poplar and balsam mixes that are the main bedding/thermal cover for the property. A few low areas are damp but the majority of the property is high and dry. A bit of topography exists within the property as well. 69 acres of the land is in MFL closed until 2026. The current plan has this property looking healthy as well. This is one of the few properties that can have the timber pay for the land and continued for a long term hold.

The trail system is absolutely amazing, big, wide, flat and dry. It makes a big loop through the property allowing for access to everything for deer retrieval or if you just want the kids to have a safe area to ride atv/utv/snowmobile within your own land.

The deer population is very good, evidence of deer and deer signs in the area, as well as on the land. Grouse were prevalent on our walk through the land.

The current owner has limited pictures, as he is more about the hunting and less about technology.

A 500 pound Black Bear was harvested here in 2022, including a few bucks.

  • Southern access and a great trail system for equipment
  • Timber is in great shape and under story is well established
  • Bedding/thermal cover is in the right place
  • Topography is just enough the deer use it
  • The property has a few natural areas for small kill plots
  • Proximity of local lakes, attractions is really good
  • ATV/UTV/Snowmobile friendly roads and trail systems
  • Maple syrup production is possible
  • Mobile home is livable and in nice shape
  • Electric, Well, POWTS system installed
  • Dead-end road

  • MFL Closed til 2026

In closing, if an owner wanted to have the next timber harvest done and some large food plots added this would make this property outstanding in every way, as well as offsetting the cost of the land.
