"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."

"This cabin was exactly what we were looking for and we enjoyed our week's stay so much, we have already booked another week for next summer. The cabin was clean, very nicely decorated, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The enclosed front porch was perfect for watching the lake. The front porch has a nice queen futon, another large comfy couch (replaced the green/metal futon in photo), several lamps, a desk, and a great little table perfect for playing cards or games while watching the lake. The well water tasted great. This cabin appears to have the best location on this side of the lake with a great level yard area and minimal drop to the water. There is a 1/2 flight of stairs from the deck to the yard. The yard area is mostly level, has both sun and shade, a fire pit, four Adirondack chairs, and is very private. There's a small sandy area providing easy access to the water. The swimming area has some weeds, but is mostly weed free close in and was perfect for floating. Enjoyed using the kayak every day. The lake is large, beautiful, and quiet. We even saw otters twice. I highly recommend this cabin. The owner responded very quickly to my emails and was very helpful. Can't wait to return!"

"This is such a nice property with a huge yard and lots of shoreline. The lake is gorgeous and peaceful. The owner obviously takes great pride in his property as everything is well appointed, updated and maintained. It was a great weekend and I would highly recommend! Be sure to visit Louie's for a drink and a cocktail right across the lake! It's a bit of a drive for supplies (about 15 minutes) so plan ahead but, I personally prefer a less-busy and quiet area when getting away from it all. The property owners on the lake have even maintained a spot on an island where you can pull up your boat and get out, cook, etcetera. It's very nice!!"

"Our family of 14 enjoyed six wonderful days at this cabin. Great location and layout - plenty of room for everyone. It was great being right on the lake, the boat was so much fun. One day it rained but that was one of the best day of the vacation. We were all together enjoying the fireplace and playing games the entire day - some didn't even get out of their PJs! Nothing but praise for this place. Can't wait to go back!!"
