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
The resort has a LOT of sentimental value to me. Grandpa and Great Grandpa came here over 65 years ago and bought the land and started working on what is now Musky Joe's Twin Pines Resort. Every cabin, corner, and wooded path has so many wonderful family memories in them. Gramma and Grandpa hand built every cabin all on their own. And some quite wonderful craftman's ship as well, I might add.
What makes this Cabin unique

Old School Vibe
We loved the very relaxing setting and the old time feeling of a simple fishing resort. Some minor updates would help make things even better bet we really loved our stay and will be back !
The property was beautiful. The property was not entirely what was advertised. The toilet did not work well.
Nice cabin for the money
It is old but neat and have all you need for good fishing gateaway.
Thank you for your stay with us. We sincerely appreciate the referal this season and hope to see you again in the fall.
Small but Quaint
Nice location. Cabin # 2 was smaller then expected. There was no TV or couch when we arrived but the owners seemed eager to please us and we had a couch that night and a TV the next day. We caught a Musky during our 4 day stay. We will be going back.
Thank you for your stay. We are steadily adding upgrades and amenities. You'll be pleased to note that although WiFi is still a struggle, all cabins have TV's and DVD/VCR players ;) Many couches have been upgraded as well.
Beautiful place with amazing people.
The cabin was clean and had everything you could need. Towels, silverware, cooking utensils, and blankets were provided. The lakes surrounding area was very clean. The owners were very nice and were always willing to help. Very kind people and beautiful place! :)
Thank you for your stay with us. We hope to host you again soon.
