We usually take the 2 1/2 hr. trip just to dine at the Rookery. This time, we decided to stay over for a couple of nights. The lodge was so clean, comfortable and quiet. We listened to the sounds of the forest as we relaxed in our room. This is truly a destination for those who are seeking a northern Wisconsin getaway that also includes fine dining, (which is not usually found anywhere else in this part of the state).
The Rookery, located below the lodge, is superb. I highly recommend ordering the rookery salad as a part of your dining experience. The micro greens are locally sourced and incredibly fresh, no matter what time of year. We always order a bottle of wine from their thoughtfully chosen wine list. This time we did not share an appetizer, but we have in the past, and have never been disappointed. The entrees are beautifully presented, and as always, unique and outstanding. The only thing missing from this visit was the owner's lovable black lab named Callie. She used to greet us at each visit. Sadly, she recently passed away, leaving behind a lot of broken hearts.
If you need to unwind, celebrate, or partake of the many outdoor activities, Cable Nature Lodge is a great choice.
