Lake Wind Lodge.... here you experience the ultimate in Up North relaxation! Imagine waking up to the morning sun and relaxing by your own private pool with a good book...or enjoying coffee on the screened-in porch overlooking the stream and waterfalls...or relaxing in the hot tub overlooking the lake...or walking down the wooded path to the sand beach and taking out a canoe onto the clear, quiet waters of the lake (take along a fishing pole, the bass are biting! And don't forget your binoculars, the variety of birds to be seen is amazing!)
In the evening, enjoy an amazing gourmet meal made just for you by your own private chef, and then relax by the warm and beautiful stone fireplace...or outside by the fire ring on the stone patio overlooking the lake. Or if you prefer, soak in the hot tub under the stars or steam your cares away in the handcrafted Finnish sauna and then cool off in the pool (or in the winter, roll in the snow).
This 'Work of Art' Handcrafted Full-Log Home with an open floor plan is located on the quiet shores of Spring Lake, just 15 minutes from Hayward, WI. At 3250 square feet, with 2 bedrooms, 2 built-in Scandinavian-style beds, and with a Pool/Guest House (for 4 more people), there is plenty of space for up to 10 people. You won't find a more quiet or private place to relax.... as afore-mentioned, swim in the beautiful private pool, watch a variety of wildlife, enjoy a bonfire overlooking the lake, fish, hike, x-c ski, and generally enjoy a slower paced 'pampering' visit! Massage services are available on-site, as are chef services! (Both for an additional cost; although one meal is included in the weekly rental rate and can be provided on site). For those meals that the chef doesn't provide, this home has a beautiful gourmet kitchen complete with granite countertops, an island with seating, and stainless steel professional appliances... Thermador double-wall ovens, a gas cooktop, a dishwasher, and a refrigerator/freezer. Be ready to relax and slow down... you'll feel as if you're at a spa... with the amazing pool, sauna, hot tub, robes, slippers, and pool/guest house, with massage services available!
This is the perfect getaway spot for reconnecting with loved ones...whether as a romantic weekend away or a fun week with close friends, this place has a way of creating wonderful memories for everyone who visits!
