Stone Lake cottage description

Light and airy home sleeps 6. Three bedrooms feature 1 queen, 1 double and 2 twin beds. A fourth sleeping area has a lake-facing double futon. Eat on the screened porch or in the dining area off the well-stocked kitchen. Lounge on the lakeside deck, veranda or the dock. A canoe and kayak are provided or use the public launch for your own boat. WiFi, garage storage, washing machine and dryer, towels and linens are provided for you. Holly Lake, at 55 acres, is very quiet but there are 5 larger lakes just minutes away. Fish, bike and swim in the summer and enjoy the area's cross-country ski and snowmobile trails in winter. The property is located right on a snowmobile trail, and still, it is quiet.

              Stone Lake is located 15 miles from Hayward, a major tourism destination and a city built on logging. Between the two cities, there seems to be a festival of some sort every weekend. The Lumberjack Show and Wilderness Walk are always popular with families. In winter, the cross country skiing and snowmobiling are excellent. Or just stay at the cottage, enjoy, relax and re-charge.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: The picture above is me shopping for a Christmas tree with my grandsons. I am in my early 60's and have spent my career working in government and non-profits in both Wisconsin and Minnesota. Right now, my work is meaningful and my schedule is flexible which means that I can provide excellent services to my guests.

              Why the Owner Chose Stone Lake:
              In the winter of 2000, there was no cross-country skiing to be had where I lived in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, but an internet search indicated there was indeed snow cover in the Hayward area. I am a Wisconsin native but had never been to this area. I loved it. I thought I could live here and by July 2000, I did. For over 10 years, I traveled back and forth to Minneapolis for work and came home every weekend--because it was worth it!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              As my primary residence for 12 years, this is a well-loved house. It is decorated with a carefully chosen blend of antiques and purchased items, most of which remain for visitors to enjoy. Abundant natural light, the natural setting and the privacy make it the kind of place that makes stress melt away. All my guests say I am lucky to have it, and I know they are so right.
