You are the first "newlyweds". We've hosted, thanks for choosing us! We are glad you found plenty to do both inside Kastenbole and around Iron County as the weather got "frightful". 😉 We look forward to your next visit, maybe this summer? Lynn

About the neighbourhood
Let Kastenbole be your home base for four seasons of adventure. You can experience, just as we do, the natural wonders this unique area has to offer. Whitecap Mountain Ski/Golf sits on the south shore of the beautiful 65 acre spring fed Weber Lake where swimming, fishing and paddling your canoe or kayak can be enjoyed. Iron County has more than 200 miles of ATV trails. Just blocks from our door you can hop on trail #6 and travel to Hurley or Saxon via the mountain range.For hikers, it's fun to note that the North Country National Scenic Trail which links the Appalachian Trail in Vermont to the Lewis and Clark Trail in North Dakota runs through the Whitecap property. For biking, you can consider the Pines and Mines Mountain Bike Trail System with more than 300 miles trails through the...
Getting around
We are about 30 minutes from Lake Superior, a must almost everytime we visit! 3 three closest beaches of Lake Superior are Saxon Harbor, Little Girls Point and Black River Harbor. Black River Road is a must for waterfall lovers with 4 maintained hiking trails leading to each falls. Hurley Wisconsin and Ironwood MI are about 20 minutes away as well as Saxon and Mellen WI. A nice day trip can take you up to Bayfield or the Porcupine Mountains each a little over an hours drive through beautiful northwoods terrain. Please contact me if you have ANY questions! Lynn
