This featured media is an aerial photo of the Bessett acreage and log home overlooking the Gile Flowage in Iron County, Wisconsin. The log home, though large in size, can barely be seen in the middle surrounded by maple trees in autumn full color.
Rolley and Helen Bessett own the famous Rolley and Helen’s Musky Shop in Minocqua, Wisconsin. The musky shop has been a landmark on Highway 51 (Interstate 39) in Minocqua for decades. When the shop first first started equipping musky fisherman in the 1940’s, only the hearty would travel the dirt roads to reach lakes teeming with the famous muskellunge.
The Gile Flowage resides in the center of Iron County and is formed by damming the Montreal River. The portion of the river north of the Gile forms the border between Iron County, Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Log homes, maples, and water are the typical scenery in the Northwoods and this photo says it all best in stunning fall color.
