Welcome to Hay Creek Cabin, a beautiful, comfy, year-round cabin located on the northeast side of the world-famous Chippewa Flowage, a sprawling, 15,000-acre lake with more than 140 islands (Wisconsin’s third largest inland lake).
This three-bedroom, three-bath cabin (or cottage as we say in Wisconsin) is located on a secluded, wooded, two-acre lakeshore lot facing west, offering spectacular views of the setting sun and water from the cabin’s deck or dock. The cabin is located on Hay Creek, a slow, winding river that is part of the Chippewa Flowage, which is known as the home to the current world-record musky caught by Louis Spray many years ago (for those in the know, the Big Chip also is known for its exceptional walleye, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass and crappie fishing, too). The lake offers numerous campsites and is surrounded by the Chequamegan National Forest, making it feel like you're up in Canada (very few houses on the lake). Hay Creek Cabin is just minutes to miles and miles of groomed snowmobile trails, cross- country ski trails (including the world famous Birkebeiner Trail), mountain biking trails (single track and the Birkie Trail), and deer, bear, wild turkey and ruffed grouse hunting.
Hay Creek is a comfortable, 2,500-square foot lake home where you can hang with the guys after a great day of fishing, hunting or mountain biking; enjoy a long Women's Weekend retreat with your girlfriends; or get cozy with your sweetheart after a day on one of the many x-country skiing trails.
Hay Creek Cabin features a fully equipped gourmet kitchen (Wolf gas range/oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Dacor microwave), lower level wet bar/microwave, washer and dryer, AC, stereo system (with CD collection), TV/DVD player (with movie collection), telephone (free long distance), two gas fireplaces (upstairs/downstairs), two charcoal grills (Weber and Green Egg), firepit and free Wi-Fi high-speed internet service. The cabin offers a contemporary yet cozy feel with knotty pine walls and cabin-style furniture and decorations.
Our guests may use, free-of-charge, a 17-foot Old Town Penobscot canoe, four kayaks, and adult and kids mountain bikes. Our 30-foot long boat dock is the perfect spot to park your boat for the weekend (electricity at the dock), and it is only 300-yards away from the Hay Creek boat landing.
Nearby Attractions: Hay Creek Cabin is located near several northwoods restaurants, such as the Original Famous Dave's, the Robin's Nest (great for breakfast), the Chippewa Inn and Dunrovin Lodge. It’s also within minutes of two bait and tackle shops, and nearby marinas (to rent a boat, pontoon or jet ski for the weekend). For golfers, there's the nearby Big Fish Golf Club (public access), and for those who like to challenge themselves at the slots and blackjack tables, the LCO Casino is just 10 minutes away. The National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame and Lumberjack Village located in Hayward, offer hours of fun for the entire family during the summer months.

About the owner: Hay Creek Cabin is owned by Stephen and Rebekah Dupont. We are residents of the Twin Cities who enjoy all things outdoors, including fishing, boating, hiking, biking, campfires, and simply relaxing while enjoying a beautiful view of the lake.
Why the Owner Chose Hayward: We love the Hayward area. We were attracted to it for all of the things you can do outdoors in this area -- the world-class fishing, world-class cross-country skiing, downhill skiing in nearby northeastern Wisconsin and northern Michigan, and incredible mountain biking trails and road biking. We purchased Hay Creek Cabin specifically because it is surrounded by national forest (very little development). It feels like you're in Canada when you're fishing or canoeing on the Chippewa Flowage. We have friends who also enjoy the area for its extensive snowmobile trails and incredible hunting opportunities.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Hay Creek Cabin is a wonderful place to relax and get away from the daily stresses from life. Many of our visitors simply enjoy hanging out on the cabin deck, reading a novel, and taking in the view of Hay Creek or allowing the lake to melt away their stress while sitting on the dock. While we do not offer a sandy beach, there are many places on the Chippewa Flowage where you can find a beach or an entire island all to your own (90% of the Chippewa Flowage has not been developed). There are also public beaches within a 10-15 minute drive of Hay Creek Cabin. Boat rental is available at nearby Treeland Resort (they'll deliver the boat/pontoon to Hay Creek Cabin's dock).
