Alder Lake - Madge real estate is regarded as a beautiful, but lesser known, market in Wisconsin for lake homes and lake lots.
Alder Lake is located in Madge (Washburn County), Wisconsin, 11 minutes from downtown Spooner. Duluth, Minnesota, is 82 miles north and Minneapolis is 128 miles southwest.
There are a few smaller airfields nearby, but the closest major airport is Duluth International Airport, which is, typically, just over an hour and a half away. Urgent care can be provided at Spooner Health, 12 minutes away.
Snacks and groceries can be found at Schmitz’s Economart, 14 minutes away. For a bite to eat, there are many highly related restaurants nearby such as Roundmand Brewing Company and Tony’s Riverside.
With only 13 acres, Alder Lake is an ideal spot to get in touch with nature and escape from city life. The best ways to enjoy this lake are kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, and fishing. Anglers looking to cast out a line have a chance to reel in largemouth bass, northern pike, and panfish.
When it's time to take a break from the lake, break out the ATVs or ORVs and head to Fenander Road-Cranberry Road ATV trail. This is a scenic, six-and-a-half-mile double-track trail through the woodlands of northwestern Wisconsin.
For unique experiences, enjoy a meal on a historic train with the Wisconsin Great Northern Railroad. From a dinner train ride for couples to a family pizza train, there is an event for all ages! It is also a fantastic way to get scenic views of the north woods of Wisconsin.
