Early Beginnings

In the early 1900s, as the appeal of Northwoods Resorts began to grow, the construction of various rustic cabins commenced. Amongst them, one remarkable cabin stood tall, instilling a sense of wonder in all who laid eyes upon it. The humble beginnings of this quaint abode were marked by thunderous applause from eager visitors.

Its walls, built with locally sourced timber, exuded the rich aroma of pine. The large wooden deck extended outwards, providing guests with a front-row seat to the majesty of the surrounding woods. As the sun set, the cabin transformed into a haven of warmth and comfort, where stories were shared, laughter echoed, and bonds were forged among kindred spirits.

A Retreat Amidst Nature's Splendor

Nestled amidst the dense foliage and serene beauty of the Northwoods, this cabin offered its dwellers a retreat like no other. The crisp morning air carried the sweet scent of wildflowers, while the gentle melody of chirping birds calmed weary souls.

Guests reveled in the simplicity of the surrounding landscape, as they explored the winding trails that led to hidden lakes and breathtaking viewpoints. The cabin became a sanctuary where people could reconnect with nature, leaving the noise and chaos of the modern world far behind.

Five generations of Marnie O. Mamminga鈥檚 family have been rejuvenated by times together in Wisconsin鈥檚 Northwoods. In a series of evocative remembrances accompanied by a treasure trove of vintage family photos, Mamminga takes us to Wake Robin, the cabin her grandparents built in 1929 on Big Spider Lake near Hayward, on land adjacent to Moody鈥檚 Camp. Along the way she preserves the spirit and cultural heritage of a vanishing era, conveying the heart of a place and the community that gathered there.

Bookended by the close of the logging era and the 1970s shift to modern lake homes, condos, and Jet Skis, the 1920s to 1960s period covered in these essays represents the golden age of Northwoods camps and cabins鈥攁 time when retreats such as Wake Robin were the essence of simplicity. In Return to Wake Robin, Mamminga describes the familiar cadre of fishing guides casting their charm, the camaraderie and friendships among resort workers and vacationers, the call of the weekly square dance, the splash announcing a perfectly executed cannonball, the lodge as gathering place. By tracing the history of one resort and cabin, she recalls a time and experience that will resonate with anyone who spent their summers Up North鈥攐r wishes they had.
