Cedar Cove Resort is a family type resort and is located about 15 miles northeast of Rice Lake, Wisconsin in Barron County just off State Highway 48. The resort is located between the little towns of Mikana and Birchwood, and is on the north half of Red Cedar Lake on the west side. The resort includes five modern housekeeping cottages and one newer park model trailer. The cottages have indoor plumbing, showers, and are well equipped for light housekeeping. All bed linens are furnished, however we ask that you furnish your own dish towels, hand towels, paper towels and toilet tissue. All cabins have propane heaters for those chilly nights, and Direct TV for those rainy days! We have 14′ aluminum fishing boats – one available with each cabin, and also motors available to rent. However, guests are welcome to bring their own boats. Prices start at $650/week for two people and varies per cabin. Please call for exact pricing and details.
The resort is situated on a level area with no hills to the lake, making easy access to the boats and docks. We have two large T-docks with benches for relaxing and fishing. We also have an adequate beach for swimming and sun bathing which is one of the few on the lake. (This resort was formerly known as Ray and Marie’s Sandy Beach Resort). The resort has a natural harbor where the boats are docked which protects them from the winds and weather, and we are fortunate to have a public landing nearby for your use. We have a nice sized fish cleaning house for your convenience, and all fish waste is bagged and frozen in a freezer provided to eliminate odors.
