Thank you so much again!
It will be extremely difficult to find an existing cabin on a lake for under 100,000. If you must be on a lake, your best bet may be a cabin with "deeded access." (meaning it won't have frontage but you will be able to easily get to the lake.)

I would reevaluate what exactly you want. I would ask myself why I want to be on a lake. Would a wooded lot around lakes be enough? Am I willing to sacrifice more money to obtain a older cabin on a smaller and/or busier lake?

Good luck. I'll repost if I find any area that might actually get what you want within your budget.

I just did a quick search using a realtor out of Rice Lake. I found one cabin on a lake under $100,000. It was a 2 bed/1 bath on Rock Lake in Chippewa County. Unfortunately, I loss the link before I even got to see more info on it, much less post it.

I would look at areas between Rice Lake and Eau Claire. Door County and northern Wisconsin are known second/vacation/retirement home areas and therefore are more expensive. The Blue Hills and surrounding countryside are less known and therefore might be cheaper. However, there are also less lakes.

Unless we are talking lots--you can get a nice lot on almost any lake with that budget--but I thought you wanted an existing cabin.
