Welcome to Eagles' Nest Lookout ...A captivating retreat away from the distractions of modern life.
Enjoy the best nature has to offer at your private wooded waterfront retreat on Nelson Lake!
Just eight miles outside of Hayward, it's the perfect cabin to stay at during the Birkie weekend! In the colder months, world class X-Country ski trails or snowshoeing can fill your desire for exercise, however don't be surprised if you'll find just as much pleasure enjoying the ambiance of a winter's evening with a glass of wine in front of a wood burning fireplace.
Comfortable in all seasons, there is plenty to do inside and out, with three bedrooms, sleeping loft, two family rooms, two fireplaces, fully equipped kitchen, spacious yard, fire pit, and dock space for your own boat!
The warm weather months tempt you to watch the bald eagles soar and hear the loons call while sitting on your private south facing dock enjoying the unique beauty of the North Woods!
Two full bathrooms and three bedrooms, in addition to a loft will accommodate a total of 10!
During the spring and summer months there are many outdoor activities to enjoy including the use of our two kayaks and canoe, fishing, biking, hiking, etc. There are also several nearby sandy swimming beaches just up the lake a bit.

Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: My husband and I are in our 50's. While we enjoy living and working in the Twin Cites, we are true nature lovers and thoroughly love the peaceful surroundings of the Wisconsin 'Northwoods'.
We purchased the cabin 10 years ago in order to experience quality family time.
We intentionally did not have a TV or internet for many years so that our three children would be encouraged to play games, read, do puzzles, go on hikes, talk (to us and each other :) ) etc.
Now that our children are older they have learned to value these same activities and enjoy bringing their friends to share the 'cabin experience'.
Why the Owner Chose Hayward: We enjoy nature and often spend the entire weekend staying at the cabin, appreciating all of the many types of wildlife.
However, we are also fairly social and truly enjoy going into town with friends to shop, go to a restaurant, take in a live performance at The Park Theater, or go to the wine cave for a glass of wine.
Being 15 minutes outside of town lets us enjoy the best of both worlds!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Our Up North Cabin combines privacy and togetherness with it's well designed layout. It is perfect for two families or a reunion. There are private sleeping accomodations for both the kids and adults including:
* 1 Bedroom with a queen bed
* 1 Loft with a queen bed
* 1 Bedroom with a set of twin beds
* 1 Bunkroom with two sets of bunks.
* A secret 'fort' for the kids...
