Hayward cabin description

Welcome to Eagles' Nest Lookout
...A captivating retreat away from the distractions of modern life.

                            Very nice cabin in a nice location. For a winter stay it's not heated as well as it should be, so I can't recommend it for a winter visit, but I think it would be a great place in the summer.

                            Our clan really enjoyed the house. It was quite clean and found everything that we needed. The photos were representative of the house and the wildlife/nature surrounding the house was very nice. We saw loon, deer, fox and an Eagle on the lake. The only disappointment was that the waterfront wasn't swimming or fishing friendly. It would have made the trip easier with our 4 kids (10,9,8 & 6). However, the lake was beautiful and the public fishing on the lake (from a dam and boat landing) was good. Bonnie was very accommodating and great to deal with.

                            We had a great time staying here (4 adults and 2 kids - 3yo and 2yo). The cabin has a great layout where kids can be napping on one side and adults can play games on the other. There was a slight ant problem, but otherwise the cabin was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed. The only two downsides were the lack of fans (it was rather warm when we were there and there was only one portable fan) and no TV stations (we failed to notice that it wasn't listed under amenities.) The backyard was nice and flat and had lots of room to run around. We also saw fox and deer across the lake which was fun. There were a lot of weeds at the dock so we couldn't swim or fish there, but the lake itself was beautiful and we had luck catching fish. This was a great family getaway! Thanks Bonnie for making it so easy.

                            Loved the peace and tranquility of being on the water. We even saw the eagles nesting in the trees and feeding on the water. The cabin was exactly what I was anticipating. Beds were comfortable and furnishings were in great shape. The kitchen had everything I needed to prepare meals. We will be back!

                            We had a wonderful time at the Eagle's Nest Lookout! So peaceful and serene - surrounded by beautiful forest and gorgious lake. Loved having morning coffe on the dock watching eagles across the way! Kayak and canoe made for a delightful adventure around the island! Everything is so perfect at Bill and Bonnie's cabin - we always look forward to our stay up in Hayward!!

                            Our first stay on this wonderful property! Exactly as described...very clean and well maintained, full equipped, extremely spacious yet warm & very charming, close to Hayward, great view of the lake and quiet! The weather kept us from enjoying the kayaks or fire ring by the lake but made for a great indoor experience, listening to music, reading and relaxing in front of both wood burning fireplaces! Bonnie was great to work with...very accomodating...made this all so easy. Will definintely recommend to others and may return this winter! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

                            Our weekend at this cabin was fantastic! The cabin is beautiful and charming. It had everything needed for 7 of us to stay comfortably. The pictures represent the cabin perfectly. We really enjoyed the use of the canoe and kayak’s. We also brought our own boat for wakeboarding. The launch is just a couple miles away and there was room at the cabin dock to keep our boat. You do need to be careful of the shallow water in the bay area; there are some stumps to watch out for until you get to the big part of Nelson Lake. We ate at the Four Seasons Restaurant on the lake and the food was great! We went into the town of Hayward, (about a ten minute drive) and visited all the quaint shops including the famous Candy Store. Mini golf, Go-Karting and the original Famous Dave’s Restaurant are just minutes away. The cabin is a great location offering a secluded get away or the fun of Hayward if you choose.

                          Owner info

                          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.
