About DEREK WINTER
After living in Hayward for the past 15 years we decided we wanted others to experience the beauty and tranquility of the Northwoods. We have had a place on the water and know you will find this property to be the perfect setting to get away from it all and relax in some of the prettiest settings you will see. We want you to have the best experience possible. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or even suggestions for what to do while in the Hayward Area.

Why DEREK WINTER chose Hayward
We instantly fell in love with this cabin after seeing the location. From the beautiful views of Tiger Cat lake to the gorgeous wooded drive to the property, to the sounds of nature, we were hooked.

Comfortable, updated cabin
Our family had a great time. The inclusion of the pontoon saved me the hassle of a separate rental. The kitchen has nice appliances...a quiet dishwasher (by our standards) and a good electric stove...I've had trouble just frying bacon or making grilled cheese on others, but this Samsung was easy to cook on. Bring/buy condiments and while there is a Keurig there's not a standard coffee maker so plan for that.
The lake is gorgeous with a small area by the dock for the kids to swim. Generally, though, we took the pontoon out and swam from that. The kids caught lots of bluegills and we also got a couple perch and snake pike. The bass, alas, didn't bite for us.
The cabin, property and lakefront were terrific. I'd definitely recommend it and Derek was great to work with.
One tip, a previous reviewer advised printing driving directions because of spotty service. I'd add that if the directions tell you to take Meadowlark Ln., you might want to reconsider unless you have either a Jeep or a taste for adventure. It got a bit sketchy, so we backed out just avoiding getting our axle hung up. There are definitely more conventional paths.
Great Place in the Woods
Derek was wonderful to work with. The house was wonderful. The lakes were great. Fishing was really good too! We would definetly stay here again. His pontoon was a real blessing.
Beautiful Loon Bay Vacation!
We had a wonderful week staying at this beautiful house. The view was exceptional from the living room and bedroom. The pontoon was perfect for us to take our adult kids and 2 of our grandkids around the beautiful lake. We had fun with the bean bag toss game. We ate at Props Landing and the Southern Bbq in Hayward. We would definitely think about renting again. Thanks!
This is a great home. Very spacious and well equipped. Loved the area!
This is a beautiful property! So peaceful. Loved the 2 living areas. We were here for the Birkebeiner, so there was lots of snow. The driveway and roads were plowed . Derek even brought sleds over for our grandchildren to use. Great rental!
Great cabin nice area
Great Cabin Tucked Away in the Woods
We stayed here in early February for an ice fishing trip. The 7 other guys in the group including myself couldn't have been happier. Plenty of room for everyone. Derek did an awesome job at communicating quickly and taking care of all the details. The cabin was fully equipped for just about everything and satellite TV and WiFi were a nice addition. The only suggestion is have a good plan on the directions going into it. Cell phone reception is very minimal back in the woods (AT&T, Verizon & T-Mobile) and we did get a bit lost trying to find it (Google Maps has the marker at the wrong house). Overall - awesome time - don't pass this cabin up! We'll most likely be back next year!
