Lakeside Cabin on Musky Joe's Resort-Hayward WI-Chippewa Flowage-Family Fun
About Cassidy Wilkozek
Greetings and Snowy Winter to you all!!! For those of you that don't know me, I am the older granddaughter of the creators of Musky Joe's Twin Pines Resort. (Cassy Wilkozek) I spent my childhood on the resort learning the business from Grandpa Nory and Grandma Gen. Grandma and Grandpa cleared the land and hand built the resort over 60 years ago. Grandma grew up in Hayward and learned the business from HER grandparents (the original owners of Lost Land Lake Lodge.) Grandpa grew up in Chicago and fell in love with the area on family vacations at Big Musky Resort. Great Grandpa (Musky Joe) bought some land up here and decided to try his hand at the resort business. He and his son (Nory) began clearing and building, Grandma and Grandpa met when Grandpa picked up lumber at the local lumber yard that Grandma was working at as a bookkeeper. They fell in love, married and planted twin pines on the point in honor of their union. (Hence the name, Musky Joe's Twin Pines :)). The two of them, with help from their sons and granddaughters, created a legacy here on the Famous Chippewa Flowage. Unfortunately, Grandpa passed away on Thanksgiving of 2017 (we all miss him ever so much) leaving Grandma wondering what to do with the resort. The thought of selling what she and Grandpa put their entire lives into was just too heartbreaking. The boys, although they love the resort, weren't keen on the management side of running things. (It takes a LOT of work, time, and customer service skills to keep a small resort competing with the big names.) As I have extensive business management, marketing, and customer service skills, I offered to try my hand at running things last summer. It was a smashing success!!! (Thank you to all that stayed with us this past summer, each and everyone of you are greatly appreciated!) Heading into Season 2019, we are working on upgrading the interiors of the cabins (nothing major, I really LOVE the theme Grandma and Grandpa created) new b
Cassidy Wilkozek purchased this Cabin in 1950
Why Cassidy Wilkozek chose Hayward
Each one of our cottages is the product of my Grandparents' love and hardwork. I, myself, grew up helping clean the cottages, "tend" bar, keeping the grounds clean, etc. I couldn't imagine a "job" more rewarding than continuing the legacy.
What makes this Cabin unique
Each cottage is set up with the comforts of home, without all the distraction. Views of the famous Chippewa Flowage can be seen from each living room window. Screened in porches to have a drink while watching the sun set (or rise.) Top Notch fishing right from the docks! Each cottage comes with a boat (motor at an extra charge), dock space, and a place to launch your boat right on site. Oh, and we LOVE dogs ;)!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Great for fishing
Old style cabins: plain, simple, comfortable.
Everything was perfect, from the location to the attentiveness of our hosts. Cabins were great, well stocked and have everything you need for cooking. Fishing from the docks is actually pretty great at the time we went (late May). We will be coming back.
Thank you! It was a pleasure hosting your group.
Well worth the price but can definitely use improvements.
Cassidy was very nice and accommodating. The only problems we’re that we had no towels, dish soap, no cable and no Wi-fi. These items were all listed as amenities. Other than that we would stay again for sure.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to host you. I will definitely make note of the missed items. I sincerely apologize for the Wi-Fi issue. We will work on getting a more reliable option asap. We do hope to see you all again in the future. Hopefully with some nicer weather!
Nice location. Could use some upgrades
Overall we had a great time in spite of the inclement weather. A few minor enhancements would make the cabin much more enjoyable. The beds were small and uncomfortable, and the toilet didn't work very well. The location was awesome and when the weather cleared we enjoyed the access to a fabulous body of water with the Chippewa Flowage.
Thank you for your stay with us. We are happy to announce that many beds have been replaced this year, with more to come later this season.
We have been making many improvements on our plumbing system as well. After this season we are planning on completely upgrading plumbing one cabin at a time. Stay tuned as we have many items on our "check list" for the up coming years.
Quiet, quaint, perfect.
If you want to get away this is the place. Cozy resort right on the water. Within a short drive to casino, great restaurants, a wildlife zoo. This area has it all including Musky Joe's resort. Awesome weekend. Will be back.
Thank you for your stay. We are glad we had the opportunity to host your lovely family. We sure do hope to see you again soon.
