Morning mist rises with the dawn over Otter Haven.
Mist on the knoll across the upland prairie.
An array of artwork: photos of colorful life bursting about Otter Haven.
Two sleeper sofas frame the fireplace for comfortable seating, or sleeping.
Daylight through the windows: a warm welcome whether you dine or lounge,
Or simply hop out to float in the pond!
Through those french doors, a deck faces the pond amid gay colored wildflowers.
Black-Eyed Susan, Grey-Headed Coneflower, Flat-Top Aster, and Gayfeather (Liatris).
Photography becomes a captivating past-time as life blooms about the property.
A lush array of native grasses and wildflowers flourish in the low meadow.
This is a traditional Native American Earth Lodge on one of our 5 islands.
We offer miles of trails, this one passing through our oak savanna.
Cast out a line, canoe, kayak, or tube down the Namekagan, and call it a great day!
Green Heron Nestlings in the pond and island complex.
Spring Creek winds through Otter Haven before flowing into the Namekagan.
And once you've seen the sights and traipsed the trails, the pond is always ready for a friend.
Back inside, our kitchen features a handcrafted tamarack counter, and offers new appliances.
The tile flooring extends front the gentle blue galley kitchen, into the bathroom.
Our newly tiled shower with opposing shower heads offers luxurious comfort.
Deer, and their tracks are frequently found as summer turns to autumn.
Autumn colors the Tamarack gold, warming the Guest House with its bronze hue.
Two otter pop up to skate on the ice, as they are ever playful.
And they don't mind posing, though only briefly, for a candid shot.
Still, snug, and warm, Otter Haven is a pleasant host for Birkie participants or supporters.

Springbrook, Wisconsin
Welcome to Otter Haven, 100 acres of original and restored prairie (started in 1975) along the Namekagon River. Whether you'd like to stroll through the low meadow grasses and wildflowers, or wander about the oak Savannah, take a leisurely tube down the Namekagen River, or fish the spring-fed ponds, we're confident the natural charm will beset you. You might then pull out an old sketchpad, or paints, or bring along your photography skills. Perhaps you'd prefer the classic canoe, outdoor fire-pit, and s'mores, or rather an old-fashioned exploration of new knolls, islands, and wooded trails. If you're inquisitive enough, and still enough, you'll find our other regular residents: Deer and Heron, Otter and Beaver, Raven, Fox, Eagle, and Squirrel. Each trail offers its own discoveries and delights - like a traditio... Read more
