Hayward house description
This lake home is a one level home that has EVERYTHING that will allow each member of the family to enjoy the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Swim, play in the sand, cook in a professional kitchen, relax near the fire pit or indoor fireplaces, or play in the large recreation room that you won't believe. It has level elevation to the water and a sand beach on Shell Lake, a 2,600 acre full recreational lake with very good water clarity. The kitchen is a professional kitchen with Viking gas stove and all the extras you enjoy at home. Add 4 warm bedrooms and 2 full baths, all with high end sleeping accommodations. You have a large family room and stunning 4 season room that functions as one of the BRs with lake views, each adjoining a large attached deck. Take your pick for staying warm with the wood fireplace or the wood stove off the dining room.
It is an open floor plan, log accents throughout the home, great lake views and and featured skylights that add natural light. It does not stop there since the garage has been completely finished for entertaining and heated so it is open year round. It has a bar, fridge, pool table, card table, darts, and more. Whether your interests are cooking, lake and beach activities, relaxing next to a fireplace, or enjoying the full entertainment options in the game room, there is something for all. Come stay with us as we make this available for the first time beginning in the fall of 2010. New for 2013 is free Wi-Fi internet!
It is professionally managed by a local property manager, Northwoods Compass, which manages over 30 lakefront cabins in the Hayward area.

Not so Sandy, not so much of an Escape
Not so Sandy, not so much of an Escape
This cabin has a beautifully open design with wonderful sliding windows onto a deck the overlooks a great lawn leading down to a cozy chair ringed fire pit overlooking the lake and the wildlife preserve on the opposite shore where loons call and the neighborhood eagle and blue lake heron fish - they were amazing to watch. However, if you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is not the place. Once you leave the house the main highway traffic noise is ever present and neighbors enjoy using their water sports vehicles on the lake - which stirs up the weeds. There is also no "beach" to speak of and the water level is low and weedy so that good clear swimming is not possible i.e. you definitely can't dive off the dock. But, if you are into water sports vehicles, it is perfect as you can still stand several blocks from the shore. That was a disappointment to us as the description led us to believe there was a lovely big sandy beach and great swimming. I believe most of the owners have purposefully let the beaches grow back to their natural habitat - which we were happy about environmentally but should be mentioned as the photos are misleading. If you love to cook on vacation, which we do, the kitchen is great featuring a beautiful heavy waffle maker but you will need to bring your own pots and pans - dishes/glassware/bowls/silver/etc are all good and plentiful but the pots and pans are substandard. There is a really good gas grill, however, which we suspect most renters prefer. So if you are not a serious cook, you'll be fine (if you don't mind using scratched Teflon pots and pans).

Manager response: Most of our renters love this place. Cannot do much about noise on lake as that is going to happen on every lake from time to time. All the kitchen supplies are in good shape but we did add new cookware for 2014.

We had an amazing time and it was very difficult to leave. A beautiful home, yard, game room and view. We definitely would come back.
