872777 Minerva Chain of Lakes $189,000

872777 Minerva Chain of Lakes $189,000

There’s a song out now called “Cool Kids” by Echosmith that makes me think of this property. How does that translate to lake property, you say? After spending almost 20 years with buyers looking at lake properties, I have a solid idea of the most popular lakes – the “cool kids”. The Minerva Chain of Lakes is definitely one of the most popular. If you have an itch, it’ll scratch it. Being able to boat between all of the lakes is an incredible experience that could easily fill a day’s worth of activity. There are ideal fishing environments, ideal swimming environments, ideal nature observation environments and ideal water sports environments. This year around lake cabin is ideal for another reason too – the pricing! Getting a place on the Minerva Chain for this price is a crazy, good thing. Run, don’t walk!

If you’d like to see any of these properties, give us a call or send us an email. We don’t care if you’re on the “naughty” or “nice” list and we’re here to help you, no matter the season! – Wanda Boldon

Local Declaration: Burnett County is the North Pole

Webster Ace Hardware has declared it so: Burnett County is the North Pole. I’m not one to argue with good common sense. The icicles hanging from the roof edge of my home and the wool socks that feel so good in my boots are additional signs. Plus we have more snow on the way tomorrow and our high temperature on Thanksgiving is said to be 13 degrees. So there you have it – Thanksgiving Greetings from the North Pole! -Wanda Boldon

The Last Sign Day of the Season

 

Rob the Sign Man

Rob the Sign Man

Our gorgeous gold post signs are installed at our new listings each week by a strong and fearless Sign Man. But there comes a time when the ground starts to freeze and we’re no longer able to install them. That time has come and this was the last week we were able to install our prominent post signs for the season. In the meantime, we’ll use other kinds of signage to mark our new listings until Spring brings a thaw that allows us to plant a “little bit of gold” for our sellers. They certainly look sharp against the snow! – Wanda Boldon

First Major Snowfall for Northwestern WI

1

Is anyone ever emotionally prepared for the first snowfall…especially when it’s a major winter storm? We may not have been emotionally prepared, but most people were physically prepared. When you live in the Northland, you know to be ready for anything by Halloween. And so – the snow plows, snow blowers, shoveling muscles and snow gear have all been put to the test!

I’m one to always look for the silver lining, but will have to say that I’m still looking. I’ll find it though. It’s always there. I think it’s under a pile of snow right now. – Wanda Boldon

Aldo Leopold: The Man Behind Our Name

Highway Marker on I-94 Honoring Aldo Leopold

Highway Marker on I-94 Honoring Aldo Leopold

Our clients and customers often wonder why our company is named Sand County Services. I went to college at the University of Wisconsin in Madison where students are introduced to a professor, author and environmentalist Aldo Leopold. His most famous book is called “A Sand County Almanac”. It’s a series of essays describing the environment around his cabin near the Wisconsin River, north of Madison. It reminded me of our family cabin on Prinel Lake, here in Burnett County.

When my parents, the founders of our company, moved here in 1984 to start a new life “Up North,” I gave them a nice copy of “A Sand County Almanac” for Christmas. As they explored ideas for starting a business as property managers and real estate sales, they were looking for a name. They wanted to have a name that described the area and did not specify the location, so they could expand the business in the future to the neighboring counties.

I suggested Sand County Services. The description in Aldo Leopold’s writings of the sandy soil, lakes, rivers, wildlife and nature was very similar to this area. I encourage anyone who loves nature to pick up a copy of “A Sand County Almanac” to enhance your view of our area. – Dave Boldon, Jr.
