  • An Extraordinary Home in a Beautiful Place

    "Our family spent a week here towards the end of summer. The setting is tranquil and beautiful, close enough to civilization to buy gluten-free pastries but far away enough hear the loons calling nightly. Little Round Lake is sweet and calm, with plenty of cooperative fish swimming around the dock at the bottom of the stairs in the yard. The yard itself is beautiful, framed by flowers and tall pines, with a rustic, boulder-lined firepit surrounded by Adirondack chairs- the perfect spot for roasting marshmallows and watching shooting stars. The house is fully equipped with everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. The kitchen supported all of our culinary adventures- it's clear that the owners are talented cooks- we found every kitchen tool we needed to prepare family meals, which we enjoyed both on the elegant dining table and beneath the umbrella on the deck overlooking the lake. There were plenty of spices in the spice rack to inspire our meals, and a weber for grilling the steaks and burgers. There's a fantastic garden across the road full of tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants, onions, and celery which went into our lunches and dinners. Though there is air conditioning in the bedrooms, we never turned it on. The many windows kept the refreshing breezes circulating throughout the house. The bedrooms have king sized beds- a pleasure! And the downstairs bedroom has a stunning bathroom with a spa feel that was cozy and luxurious. On first glance the decor of the house reflects the flavor of the North Woods. But beyond the obvious charm of hand-made stoneware, charming antique furnishings, and whimsical bits of bric-a-brac, there are also modern conveniences like wi-fi, cable tv, and whole- house stereo. But the most wonderful thing about the house was also the most subtle. Though the attractiveness of the design and the stylistic choices reflect the rustic setting, there are also original artworks and ceramics which are uniquely beautiful, echoing the natural beauty of the setting. There are small and large paintings, photographs, ceramic plates, and other expressions of the owners' creativity which enhance the experience of nature, family, and the pleasure of the North Woods. It was a wonderful place to spend a week and I can't wait to go back."

  • Annual Family Weekend

    "For the past eleven years I and my five siblings and our spouses have spent a weekend together to honor and remember our beloved parents. We've stayed many places, and to a person this property has been our favorite. The lodge was just as described, only better. We found it to be meticulously clean with wonderful beds and an amazing kitchen...we love to cook! The owners were great to work with. Sadly, as we prepared to head home, I misplaced my grandmother's antique ring. After much searching, many tears and prayers, I felt it was gone forever. However, I was assured they'd keep an eye out for it. Two days ago (3 months after our stay) I received a call from the custodians saying they'd found the ring...now many more tears and feelings of gratitude. Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful lodge. My family would love to make a return visit next fall."

  • Beautiful home on a wonderful lake!

    "My wife and I have stayed at many homes and this was the best yet! A well cared for cabin with knotty pine throughout. Cozy, with lots of nice touches made it feel like a Northwoods cabin should feel like. We loved the view over the lake with large glass windows and the trees all around. The screen porch was a cozy place to enjoy our breakfast and have a dinner after grilling on the large deck which also has a fantastic view of the lake! The lake is crystal clear as you can see almost 10 feet to the bottom. A nice sand bottom with a very gradual slope was great for swimming and having children in the water as well. A pontoon is available and we took it to Famous Daves BBQ restaurant which is on the lake just a short ride from the cabin. Very convenient. Reuben the property manager was also extremely friendly and helpful. We would recommend this cabin to anyone! Will definitely return again and have already booked next year! So glad we found it!"

Hayward Travel Tips

Delight in the Charm of Hayward, Wisconsin

Hayward has a typically small-town atmosphere and many visitors return time and again because of the warm welcome they receive. There are a wide range of resorts and rental homes, some of which are delightful log cabins. Well equipped and cozy, most have a fireplace that you can light up in the cold winter months. Larger homes can cater to families or groups of friends; you'll still have enough space to store your mountain bikes, kayaks, skis and other sporting equipment. Outdoor decks are perfect for enjoying summer evenings star-gazing or socializing with friends. With the wide range of attractions and activities it's nice to have your own Hayward private home, be able to come and go as you please, and enjoy your vacation on your own timetable.

Stay at Hayward Resorts and Join in the Seasonal Festivals and Events

There are several high profile events that put Hayward on the map. When the snow has settled in the wintertime, cross country skiers from all over North America come to participate in the American Birkebeiner Cross Country Ski Marathon at the end of February each year. The event is the largest and one of the most prestigious events on the cross country ski calendar and attracts close to 8,000 skiers to the line-up of events.

In the summer months, you can attend the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival, a weekend of mountain biking events which are loads of fun. Mud and fun are the order of the day with the serious race happening on the Saturday so that you can enjoy the festivities for the rest of the weekend.

Another entertaining event is the Lumberjack World Championships. Attracting participants from as far afield as New Zealand and Australia, this is a demonstration of brute strength and precision lumberjack skills.

Traveling to Hayward

Hayward is a year-round destination, with more than enough summer and winter activities to keep visitors to Hayward lodging entertained. The closest major commercial airport is Minneapolis, although Hayward does have a small regional airport. There are regional bus and shuttle services. Chauffeur-driven limousines and taxis are also available if you'd prefer private transfers. Many people drive up to Hayward and road access is easy. Located off the main I63, the routes are clearly posted and the roads are well maintained.

Lots to see and do at Hayward Vacation Rentals

Hayward typically attracts visitors that love culture, nature and the outdoors. The miles of mountain trails are open for hiking, mountain biking and horse riding in the summer months. You can spend days out in the mountains looping around on various trails and never get tired of the scenery.

In the wintertime, the area becomes a haven for cross country skiing, snowmobiling and snow shoeing. There are over 600 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and cross country ski routes over varying distances and terrains. Ice fishing can be enjoyed on many of the lakes and when the spring thaw comes, the streams and rivers are superb fishing grounds.

In the spring and fall, the vibrant natural colors create wonderful photographic opportunities. The serenity of the lakes contrasting with the orange hues of autumn make for a picture perfect moment. The spring thaw and bright green new growth that it brings with it are equally enchanting.

Bird-watching can often be combined with a leisurely paddle on the lakes. There are also more than 200 miles of rivers suitable for canoeing. The river systems flow through pristine undeveloped lands, national parks and forests, occasionally emptying out into small swamplands that are a haven for waterfowl.
