Hayward cabin description

This beautifully restored 1932 schoolhouse has been turned into a lakehome and is available for a unique vacation experience.

As you walk up the steps past the picture of Abe Lincoln into the great room, you'll feel like you have stepped back in time. It's not difficult to imagine a room full of youngsters trying hard to concentrate on their lessons while many distractions await them outside! The ceilings are tall with 6 vintage light fixtures. Ivy covers much of the window facing east. Toward the lake, you'll see the old school bell, still located where it was 80 years ago. The drinking fountain is mounted by the back door.

You'll not find a flat screen tv, huge master suite or spa here. But modern amenities such as central air, a well-appointed kitchen and new deck offer comfort while retaining the simple character of this home.

The main bedroom, which was formerly the school's kitchen, has a queen size bed and a walk-in closet. The former library contains a full size bed. A sleeping loft also houses a full size bed.

One and a half baths (girls and boys, of course) complete the main floor. They're quite simple, but functional. In the unfinished basement (gymnasium) we keep a ping pong table and organ that we inherited from the previous owner.

The cabin comes with 2 single-person kayaks and a small assortment of floaties etc.

Our property, which is located on majestic Whitefish Lake, faces south gently sloping toward Schoolhouse Bay. Walleye, northern, bass, crappies and musky can be found in this clear, deep lake. The Beechmoor Restaurant is a quick trip accross the lake. Andy and Darlene serve up a terrific menu, including their version of Wisconsin's famous Friday night fish fry.

Hayward is about 15 minutes from the cabin, and offers a wide variety of shops, restaurants and outdoor activities. It's also home to the American Birkebeiner, the biggest cross country ski event in North America. It attracts participants from all over the world.
