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

Great quiet spot on the lake
Our stay was great. Brought dogs and had lots of quiet relaxing time + fishing. Great Experience.
Summer Camping Trip
Wished there was fire pits by each cabin. There wasn't WiFi available as stated online. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay. There was kayaks & boats with easy access to the lake. They didn't have a sandy beach area, but have recently changed owners, that are attempting to make changes.
The property is beautiful and secluded from the hustle and bustle. The family running it are working hard to make improvements to the property and I think they will enhance the overall experience. If there were any negatives, the wifi signal didn't work. It wouldn't have been an issue but we didn't have a Verizon signal either so it wasn't as relaxing of an experience because I was worried about work (I work at an emergency response company and being disconnected is difficult). On the other hand, it made us try to enjoy a weekend disconnected. I look forward to seeing how the resort evolves as they start implementing improvements.
Thank you for stay with us. I deeply apologise for the WiFi, it has been a huge struggle. I am looking at some other options, namely satellite internet as well as a Verizon booster. We look forward to hosting you all aagain in the future. We still have many openings this summer or email me to prebook for next year. Stay tuned for more improvements as we are on a 5 year plan to upgrade all trouble spots BUT will not change the over all theme and feel. :) hope to see you soon!
