Things to do in Wisconsin in the Winter

Northern Wisconsin vacation property is definitely 4 season vacation property.  There is just as much fun to be had in the winter as there is in the summer in the North Woods.  The North Woods are probably one of the most popular destinations when it comes to snowmobiling.  Imagine heading out on a sunny winter day with thousands of acres of public trails to explore with family and friends. These same scenic trails are also perfect for cross country skiing and snow shoeing as well.

People in the North Woods can get pretty creative when it comes to their winter recreation.  You’ll always find new things going on.  In Athelstane, Thornton’s Resort just held its first ever Human Bowling tournament.  Imagine gigantic bowling pins set on a hill as people on sleds compete to knock over the most pins.

Ice fishing is also popular in this area as well as the more typical favorites like ice skating and regular sledding. One thing is certain, with the beautiful white woods and snow covered scenery, you will not want to let a sunny winter day go to waste.

Seller Financing for Your Property

If you are looking for property in the North Woods of Wisconsin but dreading the long, drawn out process with a bank,  you have another, easier option – Seller Financing through Doug Wagner Real Estate.  With lower closing costs, more flexible payments and a friendly process, I think most people will be pleasantly surprised.  Read what some of our customers have to say about their experience with buying land using our seller financing:

I was very pleased how smooth and easy it was to purchase my property with landwagner’s financing. I met Doug at the property and agreed on a purchase price, signed the contract, gave him my down payment and the property was mine to do anything with that day. It all took place at the property and only took ten minutes. I was shocked! Very, very low closing cost compared to the $2000 the bank would have charged me.” (read full reviews)

“With years and years of searching for the “right” property, we one day received a call recommending the Wagner’s. Without hesitation, we scheduled and appointment that started our journey. Doug was helpful and patient in all aspects from professionalism to being a friend in guiding us in setting up our lot. I always recommend The Wagners to anyone and maybe even more from us, that’s how grateful we are in doing business with you. I thank you and your family for all the tremendous help from the beginning to many more years.”  (read full reviews)

We want to make the process as simple and comfortable as possible.  When you do your financing through us, you are dealing with people who understand and not an institution.  If you have any questions, just contact us and we will be happy to answer them.

Land as an Investment

I was interested to run across a site maintained by the World Forest Institute that talks about how institutional investors like pension funds, insurance companies and endowments have been adding forestland investment to their portfolios as a way to hedge against inflation in 2012.  It goes on to mention that while most of the forestland investing is happening in the U.S. that other countries like New Zealand, Australia, China, South America and others are also seeing increased interest in forestlands as an investment.

There is an old Mark Twain quote, “Buy land, they’re not making it anymore.”  Will Rogers echoed the sentiment in slightly different words.  While you don’t want to invest in just ‘any’ land without doing good research and making sure you are choosing wisely, there is real truth that it is a limited resource.  In the same way that some people choose to invest in precious metals to withstand economic turbulence, others choose to invest in land that has good value as a way to protect their money.

The North Woods are filled with beautiful forests and we have always emphasized buying land for the enjoyment and memories you and your family will build. However, the fact that that institutional investors have taken an interest in forestland as an investment tool was interesting enough that I thought it was worth mentioning here. If you have ever thought about buying vacation land for personal enjoyment, it might also be worth doing a little research to find out how your land might also serve you as an investment.

North Woods Wisconsin

North Woods in the FallWhere is “Up North“?  It doesn’t exist on any map.  Its more of a feeling you have when you experience the beauty of the Marinette County countryside, the breathtaking sunsets on our hundreds of miles of lakes and rivers or the smell of a roaring camp fire back in the woods.

Up North is a state of mind.

It is a place to enjoy family, hiking, fishing, hunting, Mother Nature.  It is a place to recharge and breathe in beauty all around you.

At we offer a large variety of land for sale “up north”.  Our land is ‘four season’ vacation land, offering the perfect combination of relaxation and fun activities year round.  Fall in the North Woods is perhaps one of the most beautiful times of the year.  Take a ride and come enjoy the gorgeous scenery, with leaves changing as we speak.  Let the stress of city life fall off your shoulders as you take in our rustic roads and tranquil scenery.  If you have never visited the North Woods, we invite you to come on up and check it out for yourself. A weekend in the North Woods can be just the medicine for being rejuvenated before heading back to work on Monday.

Crivitz Realty

Crivitz RealtyHaving just arrived home again after a trip to the Crivitz and North Woods area we are rejuvenated and our internal clocks are now ticking at a more relaxed pace.  It is hard to adequately paint a picture of the effect this area has on our hearts and spirits.  Driving up from Chicago in the early evening, the beautiful landscape and amazing trees had an almost surreal glow as the sun was setting.  Though it is only a few hours drive, we felt like we had entered another world and the cares of normal life seem to quickly slip away.  At one point as we drove over to Nicolet National Forest, we watched a large black bear cross the road in front of our car. What fun to see that.

Whether it’s the lake landscapes, the lush fields, the forests or all the extra oxygen from so much green, one seems to breathe slower and deeper in the North Woods.  The extra space in the landscape seems to equate to extra space mentally to just enjoy and relax. Even the drive itself is a treat. If you’re like me, you’re happy to just take in the beauty and slow down but there is also plenty to do. Here are some fun things to do in the North Woods >>

If you’ve ever wanted a getaway of your own that is not far from the city, you may want to browse some of the available Crivitz realty for a vacation property site or find your own piece of camping land.  Right now there is beautiful waterfront property available as well.

You are welcome to visit any of the land on your own or schedule a visit by contacting us.
