"This cabin was the setting for a wonderful family vacation this summer. The cabin set up (3 bedrooms, 2 baths) was perfect for our family of parents and teens. Just the right amount of "together" space, but room to be alone when desired. Wifi and cable worked like a dream. Clean, well equipped. Outside, though, made the experience outstanding. The connection to the lake was beautiful. The small sand beach was the best lake connection we saw in the area. Super-clear water. Completely free of weeds. We had a wonderful time hanging out in the water, between the shore and the swim raft. The pontoon boat was the perfect way to experience the lake. In short, every positive review below is right on the mark. And still true during a summer 2015 visit. We would definitely stay here again."

"This review is based on a family trip in late summer 2015. Cabin was basically a modern comfortable home located right on a lake, only about 15 or 20 minutes outside of Hayward. Overall, this was a really nice property and we would likely stay again. But like any place, not everything was perfect.
-Great location only a short distance from Hayward. Hayward has a number of great dining and shopping opportunities.
-Nice full size kitchen with stove, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, upscale sink and numerous cabinets. Many plates, bowls, glasses, pots & pans and utensils are provided. Be prepared to bring any and all food and beverages yourselves.
-Large deck on two sides of the properties. The back deck was great for enjoying the lake view or just reading.
-Wireless internet via Centrylink DSL was included. Speeds were relatively slow if you are used to fast high speed internet in cities, but any DSL in the woods by a lake is appreciated. If you want to spend your vacation watching Netflix and YouTube all day, stay home.
-The master bedroom upstairs is large and has a upscale bathroom. Two bedrooms are located on the main level. The loft has a futon and a large Lovesac that can sleep a few younger folks.
-There is a full sized washer and dryer in the basement.
-DirectTV HDTV service.
-The basement had a small assortment of tools and supplies that I used to fix a couple of squeaky doors and loose screws that we encountered. These were just normal everyday problems that any homeowner should expect, and not a complaint about the house.
-The homeowners provided a few binders that had useful information about the house, the nearby lakes, and things to do in the area.
-Numerous ATV and biking trails are nearby
-Making the rental through Northwoods Compass was easy and professional. No complaints.
***These are provided as constructive feedback. None of these would prevent us from considering this property in the future***
-The water had a poor tasted that none of us liked, even some of us that used to country well water. We used bottle water for everyday drinking and making ice cubes.
-Permanent fixtures and appliances in the house were top rate, but short lived furniture was one of our strongest dislikes. The beds were uncomfortable, the two love seats in the living room were uncomfortable for both young and old, and the dining room table was wobbly.
-Fishing in late summer was poor for us."

"We made a last minute decision to head up north for MEA weekend and couldn't be more delighted with th Lipsie Ritz. We enjoyed the amenities the cabin offered especially the fire pit and foosball. It was also great to have direct TV to catch up in some college football.
Would definitely love to make another trip her again."

"Our family thoroughly enjoyed spending the Christmas holiday together at this very special place. The property is very well-maintained. The Barn is well-appointed and provides great space for family time by the fire. The views of the Lake, as well as the twinkling lights of Duluth across the bay, were the perfect back drop to nighttime bonfires. We especially enjoyed exploring the trails and finding the beaver clearing, beaver lodge and dam. The Barn is truly an ideal setting for a large group of friends and family."
