About the property

Lakefront House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 19-25)

This lake shore beauty is the ultimate vacation home on Lac Courte Oreilles. An executive style home, this house is just over 3,000 sq. ft., has five bedrooms, and 3-1/2 baths. The total number of beds is eleven (five queens, three doubles, and three singles). The interior walls are graced with many types of wood, from butternut, to white ash to birch, giving each bedroom its own distinct feel. The beds are top of the line, as is the well appointed bedding. Surround sound stereo system, including outside speakers, will add to the enjoyment of any get-together. The large mudroom is equipped with washer/dryer and a half bath. The impressive fireplace, stretching thirty feet, graces the sunken living room and is the focal point of the Great Room. The dining room table seats ten people and the kitchen bar has room for another five. The large deck comes complete with large table and numerous chairs; the private beach and pier make this a most desirable unit for large groups. Everything in this house is first class and you won’t be disappointed with its “new world” charm.

Located on the shores of Wisconsin's eighth largest natural lake, Lac Courte Oreilles is just as impressive as this house. With over 5,000 acres of crystal clear water, Lac Courte Oreilles will enable all water sport lovers to fulfill their dreams. The lake is spring fed, deep, and stays clean and clear year round. During the winter months, you can snowmobile or ski directly from your door. Located on snowmobile trail #3, you will have access to Sawyer County's 600 miles of groomed trails interconnected by many marked trails crossing our beautiful lakes.

Just 500' down the shoreline is a bar/restaurant and marine gas. The bar serves a light sandwich menu and features live music on the weekends.

About Michele Horman

Greetings from Hayward, WI. My name is Michele Horman and I own this house, which is adjacent to Trails End Resort, which I also own. I have been the owner of Trails End since 1986, and it has been in the same family since 1969. The house has plenty of privacy for those wishing to be by themselves, but also offers many resort amenities. The 'lodge' is our bar/restaurant featuring a beautiful renovated A-frame serving a light sandwich menu and snacks. We have live music every Saturday night and Karaoke most Friday nights. New for 2011: a gas pump available from the pier. This will be the only place to get gas on the lake!

Michele Horman purchased this house in 1993

Why Michele Horman chose Hayward

The beautiful water of Lac Courte Oreilles is the main reason I chose this property. The water stays clean and clear the entire year, making it ideal for swimming, fishing, and water sports. The house is located in a calm bay on level shoreline.

Awesome House!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a bachelor party weekend and it did not disappoint. Tons of room for our group of guys to stay and sleep comfortably, and the spacious living room made for an excellent venue to watch the college basketball conference tournament games. We spent Saturday night at the resort bar rocking out to an awesome band. Great people, great bar. The weekend could not have gone much better. Michele was an excellent host, we will be coming back again!!

This house was fantastic. We had girl's weekend here. All 8 of us got our own bed and had room to sit at the kitchen table and eat as well as relax in the living room to play games, listen to music and watch movies. The house is incredibly beautiful and comfortable. We took a 2 1/2 mile walk on the frozen lake and visited Trails End resort several times. The band on Saturday night was great. We had such a great time we hated to say goodbye, but there is always next year!

Father kids weekend.

  • 5 of 5

6 of us dad took our oldest child up for a weekend of ice fishing and just hanging out. The kids all had a blast and so did the dads. I would recommend this beautiful place to everyone. Michelle and the staff at Trails End were great with the kids as they went in and out for popcorn and kiddie cocktails.

Michelle's was excellent. So much fun. The cabin is absolutely amazing for large groups and Michelle is wonderful. And the resort bar is 200 feet away, it's amazing.

Pond hockey tourney!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

First off, Michelle is an awesome lady. This home is absolutely beautiful and BIG!!!!!! We had 19 guys in the home and never felt cramped. It's so wide open that all of us got to hang out together in the large living room/kitchen/dining rooms. Her restaurant/lodge is also a fun place(about 300 steps f house:) ) We will definitely be back.

The home and hospitality from Michele and her staff is top notch.

Thank you

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a bachelor party and were extremely impressed. There are plenty of beds and bathrooms, with a large kitchen and living room, and back yard and deck; definitely enough to host 15 people comfortably. The owner was very easy to work with and charged a very fair price. We were very happy to see there were plenty of supplies (garbage bags, coffee filters, grilling tools, etc.) that the owner definitely did not have to supply and could have easily been forgotten when packing for the trip. The back yard did not have the best shoreline, but the resort beach is a very short walk away. The living room has also been updated with a large HD TV since the pictures were taken for (as of Sept. 2013).
