"The Gerends are super nice people with 2 great cabins next to each other on the east side of Hayden Lake. Next year we'll rent them both and bring both sides of the family! It wasn't clear from the writeup that the cabins share an U-shaped dock but it's very large so worked out fine with our neighbors. The dock highlights are all the water toys and a massive rock that kids can climb up and jump into the water. The cabin itself is well-appointed and cozy, the king-sized beds were very comfortable, and the wraparound deck is phenomenal -- plenty of seating, great views of the lake and sunsets, and thankfully not a single mosquito! We had never spent time on Hayden before so this is not a knock on the cabin, but it is very busy and popular lake. Tons of young people on big power boats cranking music, and there is a big church camp across the way with lots of celebrating throughout the day and into the evening. If you are looking for a quiet lake experience, fall is probably a better time to stay at this cabin. But if you have kids or don't mind a lot of activity on the water, this is the place!
Note to people who fish: we scouted out the lake pretty well, turns out the best fishing is right smack in the middle of the lake straight out from the dock. Despite the heat wave, we caught huge crappies, a few nice trout, and even a big northern pike (all on Rapalas). The kids caught lots of nice-sized bluegills right off the dock using a single salmon egg on the end of a hook.
Thank you Pat & Bob for a wonderful stay!"

"I would like to fill this space with negative comments about this house to make sure it will be available for us next year...but I can't. There was only one negative, and that's really based on your perspective. Cell reception was basically limited to on area where you might occasionally be able to make a phone call or get a text (Verizon). But that was it, and like I said...might be a good thing, might be a bad thing. Now for the positive stuff. Huge house with plenty of room on a very quiet street. Tastefully decorated, extremely clean, everything you would need for your stay. Far enough away from town to get out of the hustle and bustle, but close enough to make running into town east. The deck and dock were the places to hang out, fishing was off-the-hook spectacular. Our son caught (and released) 115 fish in one day, a combination of bluegill, crappie, small and large mouth bass. Owners were great with setting up the rental and overall, couldn't have asked for a better experience."

"Great location, house was very nice and great for two families, kids loved the bunk room! Dock definately needed to be replaced (owner mentioned they are looking at it for next year) otherwise it would have been an excellent rating!"

"14 of us, ranging from 2 months to 56 years, every one had a blast and loved the house!
As to the previous post, yes there are stairs down to the house (79 not 84, yes I counted!), however, once you are at the house, you are on the lake, so you have full use of the house facilities and you can be close to kids on the dock while enjoying the nicely shaded deck and yard. Fishing was great, everyone who dropped a line caught a fish! The TV didn't get turned on at all, that is how much we enjoyed it!
Ramona was on top of everything, including showing up with a plumber at 9pm on Friday when unexpected (and totally out of any ones control) issues came up.
We are already planning our return trip for next year, and no one wants to even consider any other house."
