Hayward house description

NEW FOR SUMMER 2015: MID JUNE -LATE AUGUST THIS PROPERTY WILL RENT BY THE 'WEEK' ONLY, FROM 9AM SATURDAY TO 1PM FRIDAY (7 days/6 nights).
Spectacular, Non-Smoking, Cedar 'Chalet' on very private 202 Acre Big Bass Lake. Sleeps 12 Max. Five miles west of Minong, Wisconsin; 20 miles west of Hayward, Wisconsin. Great private sandy beach with very gradual depth - perfect for kids of all ages (don't be fooled by other properties that are vague when describing their 'beach'). Notice the very low listing number of our property - which means we've been renting this home exclusively as a vacation rental longer than almost anyone in the area (and it is properly licensed with the state and county for rental purposes, it is properly insured as a rental, etc. - many properties are not since they are often owner occupied much of the year). Plus, we have a Property Manager/Handyman NEARBY. If you have ANY issues that arise during your stay our local Property Manager is here to help address your issue PROMPTLY. For more pictures and information on this and our other vrbo property nearby (listing #45183), including testimonials from dozens of satisfied renters, please go online to haywardvacationrentals (dot com). We want you to be assured that you are booking a quality property that is everything it is advertised to be.

New Golf Course, Public Beach (w/boat landing) nearby and miles of ATV & Snowmobile trails surrounding. Great lake, with crystal clear water, for waterskiing/jet skiing. One seasonal neighbor to the east, but NO neighbors to the west (over 1000 feet of vacant lakeshore).

Beautifully landscaped yard with three rock retaining walls, new sod, brick walkways, and a huge stainless steel firepit overlooking the lake. Take the steps straight down to the lake and new dock. Canoe, oversize swim raft and paddleboat included. Pontoon, fishing boat/motor also available for rental.

Interior is immaculate and very tastefully decorated. Pine ceilings and hardwood floors in great room, fireplace, attached gazebo with lake view and nice patio/lawn furniture set. Ceramic tile in all three full bathrooms (one on each level and one with new 6' jacuzzi tub). This place has it all, too much to mention.

You will be hard pressed to find a finer vacation home in the area. Bedroom Layout: King (firm) in upper master suite, king and queen on main level, king (softer) and queen (firm) in walk-out basement, as well as a new bunk bed with a full size mattress on bottom and twin on top in the basement. Basement is completely finished except for the floor that we have chosen to keep as cement for now (as that floor is very snow, sand and pet friendly down there as you enter the home from the lake).

Pet Policy: Pets are not allowed Memorial Day-Labor Day. Otherwise 1 or 2 dogs allowed, WITH PRIOR APPROVAL, but pets are only allowed in the basement which walks out to the lake (our lab loved it down there), due to pet allergies in our family (and for other renters with pet allergies). Cats not permitted. Dogs must be kept off of all furniture/bedding, pet waste disposed of properly and dogs are not allowed to go #1 or #2 in the very nice yard/lawn area between the home and water (ruins grass). Dogs are NOT allowed on upper two levels and you are expected to vacuum up the majority of pet hair prior to departure or a separate cleaning fee will apply. If you are looking for a more 'pet friendly' properly, check out our other listing nearby, #45183 on vrbo (much larger 5 acre lot, pets allowed on all levels and no restrictions on where they go #1 & #2!)....but other basic pet rules apply (no barking allowed, no pet trespassing at neighbors, pick up pet waste, the normal 'common sense' rules that go hand-in-hand with being a respectful pet owner at a rental property).
