Bring your family and friends to this lakeside retreat on Nelson Lake. This 1965 cottage was purchased during Summer 2017 and is being completely renovated to provide our guests with a comfortable 2-3 bedroom lakeside rental on Nelson Lake. Just steps away from the water, enjoy your day on the lake, fishing or relaxing. When you are back at the cottage, there is a large sandy swim area just in front of the cottage. So bring your family and friends. If you need a boat, we have a Grumman pontoon available for rent. This pontoon has a 40hp Evinrude ETEC, holds 8 persons, has a live well, snack table and Bimini.
Main Street Hayward is on the west side of town. WE ARE 5 miles from these great downtown shops, bakery, restaurants and post office. We are less than 5 miles from hospital and library. So relax and enjoy the lake, but make a quick trip to town to enjoy all it has to offer also.
The cottage is a 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath cottage that sits within 40 feet of the Nelson Lake shoreline. It has a four-seasons porch, which also serves as the third bedroom. With new furniture, furnishings and new appliances, this picturesque cottage will be a great place to stay while you enjoy your time on Nelson Lake.
For larger groups we have Wood Haven Lodge (see our listing at VRBO #474410) which can hold up to 17 guests (beds for 13). This lodge is next door to the cottage, approximately 250 ft away on the shared driveway. These two vacation lake homes, when rented simultaneously, can provide accommodations for groups of 21-25.
