Minong Flowage/Cranberry Lake The Minong Flowage is a 1,564-acre impoundment of the Totogatic River created by a dam completed in 1937.  Most of its bottom is sand; its maximum and mean depths are 21’ and 9’. The character of this lake varies from one location to the next.  Although much of the Minong Flowage is deep, open water, some of its shallow bays contain tree stumps and aquatic vegetation.  That makes for a variety of fishing and boating situations, all the way from isolated bays offering near-wilderness settings to other areas where there’s wide-open water perfect for waterskiing.  Lake homes and cabins are available in both types of settings, and everything in between. The fishery consists mainly of walleye, northern pike, largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, and yellow p...

Minong Flowage Dam Repair January 2014 Update January 21, 2014 Minong Flowage dam repair update. Repairs projected to be completed by February 14.  The Minong-Cranberry Flowage system has been drawn down by almost five feet, and the water has remained at that level since last summer. So what does all this mean if you’re thinking of buying or selling on the Minong Flowage or Cranberry lake?  And who’s paying for the dam?  If you’re thinking of buying a home or cabin on these lakes, should you worry about special assessments? As you might expect, the real estate market on these lakes may be a little slower this year.  If you’re buying, it might be a good time to to take a closer look at the Minong Flowage or Cranberry lake.  By next spring, however, water levels will be right back to norm...

Stick-Built, Log, and Timber-Frame Homes: The Basics Just what’s the difference between stick-built, log, and timber-frame homes?  What are the advantages and disadvantages of each construction method?  And are all log homes really log homes?  For the whole story, you may want to do more research later.  For a quick overview, keep reading. Here in North America, nearly all homes are now built with light-frame construction that employs dimensional lumber, usually 2x4s or 2x6s.  It’s a technique that allows builders to efficiently and economically enclose a large space with less material.  You’ll sometimes hear these homes described as “stick-built,” especially when they’re being compared to mobile or modular homes.  The term also makes sense when these conventional construction technique...

The Minong Flowage Dam Project: What it Means For Lake Home Buyers and Sellers View Minong Flowage in a larger map By now you may have heard that the aging dam on the Minong Flowage is about to be replaced. The project is currently scheduled to begin in May of next year, and the water level of the entire flowage will be dropped by approximately five feet throughout the summer and fall. The project’s estimated $1.09 million cost will be covered in part by a state grant of $400,000 and a commitment of $100,000 from Dahlberg Light and Power. At this point it appears the remainder will be covered by property owners living within special assessment districts being established by Douglas and Washburn Counties. So what does all this mean for buyers and sellers on the Minong Flowage? First, whe...

New restaurant opening today in Minong WI - Stony's Bar and Grill. Check them out. I'm happy for both the sellers and buyers; I helped to work out this deal on both sides. It may be snowing outside, but you'll find a warm and friendly atmosphere, and good food, inside. Located on Hwy 77 right on the main street in the village center, and next to the Wild Rivers Snowmobile and ATV Trail. The trail is open. Stop by Stony's for lunch on your way through Minong.
