Property description

Off the beaten path YET close to the quaint town of Hayward... the drive "out" is part of the fun... Lake home is spacious, semi-secluded, comfortable & new... 3 BR/3 BA, 2 family rooms, 2 fireplaces, 2 spacious decks...Great island views! Tree lined shoreline with sand bottom swim area & great fishing...1300 acre Tiger Cat Chain of Lakes... great wildlife & kayaking...girls/golf getaway! ... Great fall/winter hideaway, too -- close to ATV trails... snowmobile trails... Birkie XC ski trails... and great road biking, too! ! HIPP'S HIDEAWAY has something for everyone. Great for R&R. Soft adventures abound. Good swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, mt biking, road biking, hiking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, golfing, shopping, restaurants, antiquing etc. Right on Fall Color Tour #1. ATV trails nearby. Bring your boat or rent one. Boat landing close!

2 Canoes, 1 kayak and 1 paddle boat included with the rental! Great for exploring chain of 6 lakes & interconnecting waterways (think 'Wisconsin Everglades'...)

LAKEHOME DETAILS: 2 level, cedar sided. Upper level even with driveway, wrap around deck. Lower level closer to lake w/large 20' x 40' deck w/seating & a porch swing.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My husband and I bought Hipp's Hideaway for rental purposes in 2001. We had been in the rental business for 18 years in St. Paul, MN, and thought we'd try something more 'fun'. We were able to get in on the building process add many of the finishing touches ourselves. As we were seasoned vacaton renters, we were able to keep the needs of renters in mind. Our goal was ... and is.. to make you feel like it is YOUR place during your stay...... We selected Hayward as a great rental area, then looked at 31 properties. We were always drawn back to Tiger Cat Cove. Yes, it was strong in all the basic 'investment oriented' things... large wooded lot, good frontage, good sized lakehome, but also had an amazing serenity piece that the others didn't. Our guestbook at the cabin can attest to this as well... come check us out! SHAWN JOHNSON-HIPP (female)... I get mistaken for a male all the time -- but it is less traumatic now than in 7th grade when I was assigned to the boys locker room for my PE class :) ....

Why the Owner Chose Hayward, WI, USA:
We were determined to invest in an area that would welcome us AND our guests, and Hayward fit the bill. There are tons of things to do right at the cabin, nearby, or in town. Great dining options abound. The superior water clarity into the fall, the sand bottom frontage, and the varied woods surrounding the property kept drawing us back.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Well paved backroads for walks and biking. Fun chain of lakes to explore +++ great fishing. Cabin comes with 2 canoes, a kayak and a paddleboat. Rent a stand up paddleboat in town! Free evening concerts featuring the loons, accompanied by the bull frogs. Crickets will chime in as well. Suggested finale is to finish off your concert experience watching the dance & crackle of a lakeside campfire and take in the visual array of the evening stars and moon against the pitch black sky...
