Our two bedroom lakefront home is located on Chief Lake of the famous Chippewa Flowage. Down the road from Chief Lake Lodge and Pat's Landing Resort managed by Treelands Resorts, this home is ideally located for 4-season fun -- far enough away from town to enjoy the wilderness setting that the Chippewa Flowage is famous for, but close enough to walk to several lakefront restaurants. Summer 2014 is booking up fast -- mostly with repeat renters that come again and again -- but there are several weeks available in late May, Early June, August, September, and October. Both are beautiful times of year, fishing is great and the scenery is great. Warm days and cool evenings make sitting around the fire - either indoors or out- the perfect place to be.
In the summer you can swim, boat (for great wildlife and scenery viewing), tube, jet ski, land a musky, build a fire on the patio in our outdoor firepit, get your fill of bluegills or just sit and enjoy the wilderness view and peace and quiet right on the dock. Fall's a great time for walleye and musky fishing, as well as seeing the beautiful northwoods colors. And this is a great house for snowmobiling enthusiasts. Just drive down the ramp on our property out onto the frozen lake and access hundreds of miles of trails about 100 yds in front of our house. Our northwoods home has two bedrooms, one with king-sized bed, the other with a queen and a single bed, as well as a sleeper sofa; one bathroom with shower/tub, laundry/mudroom, and all the comforts/amenities of home. We have stocked the house with pretty much everything you possibly need for a great, relaxing time in the north woods - Linens and towels/beach towels are provided for your use, along with a fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy a wood fire (inside or out--logs provided) on a crisp spring or fall evening or cold winter's night.
We have a separate 'bunkhouse' available for rent for larger groups or just to spread out. Please inquire about specific rates for specific stays.
We also have a 16-ft Starcraft fishing boat, with 15hp motor available for rent too. Rate for the boat is $200 for the week during the summer months. Resort communities of Hayward, Cable and Stone Lake are just a short drive and offer world class events, attractions, shopping, casino, golf, restaurants, and more.
Bunkhouse available as add-on rental for $600/week during the summer months. Inquire about winter nightly rates.
1/2 security/damage deposit when booking, full rental amount due 10 days before arrival, damage deposit returned after departure

About the owner: My husband John grew up vacationing on the Chippewa Flowage in the 1960's. While a lot has changed, the wonderful wilderness feeling of the lake and our cozy cottage on Chief Lake of the flowage reminds us of those carefree days. Now, 3 generations of Dawsons and our family dogs love to be together at the lake. Whether it's winter or summer, spring or fall, we love every season. Seeing the cabin and the lake and all its wilderness wonders through our grandsons' eyes makes this home truly special to us. We love to have guests and have many that now return year after year to stay with us. We hope you can join us and experience it too.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Whether it's reading a book by the fire or on the dock, roasting marshmallows in the outdoor firepit, fishing off the dock or looking for new 'secret spots' with our grandsons, snowmobiling in the winter, or just sitting in the living room in front of the fireplace and watching the snowmobilers go by at night, playing cards or watching a movie, hiking through the woods or shopping on Hayward's Main Street, or trying our luck at the Casino -- there's plenty to do (or not do). The lake and wilderness are very quiet and peaceful, but there are a few lakeside restaurants nearby for a quick lunch or dinner if you like.
