Bedrooms 1
Space 900 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 0 - 4 nights


About the property

One bedroom, 1 Bath, Living Room, Full Kitchen, 2 Decks, One Dog Can Stay Free

The cabin is located in a peaceful private setting. It sleeps two adults on a luxury queen bed. If you have kids - one could sleep on the couch (not pull out) and the other on a chaise lounger - or you could use a blow up mattress. 4 adults would be too much for the cabin. Cabin is really optimized for one couple.

Free use of Yukon Charlie snow shoes in the winter! Main snowmobile trail to Lake Superior right across the street! Plenty of room for your snowmobile and trailer (or boat trailer in the summer) in the driveway. XC and downhill skiing and at Mt Ashwabay. The amazing ice caves are only a few miles away!

Dog friendly - first dog stays for free! (If there is a 2nd dog - a $25/day extra rate applies -- the cabin isn't big enough for a couple of medium size dogs and up anyway) Beautiful private setting, with wrap around deck overlooking birch and pine trees in ravine. Flowing stream in spring.

Little Sand Bay beach is only a few miles away - and there is Meyers Beach, the beach in Cornucopia - or the beaches over on Madeline Island that you get to via ferry and bike rental (best to rent bike on Bayfield side.) Lots of sailing, hiking, biking, and artsy places in the Bayfield area. The new casino (Legendary Waters) is only ten minutes away.

The cabin was remodeled in 2012, and has a queen size Serta IComfort mattress with remote control for three levels of vibration. You can raise and lower head and feet. Includes Zero Gravity mode! There is a dresser and armoire in the bedroom along with a flat screen 'Smart' TV offering free movies via Amazon Prime and other apps. There is a full kitchen, granite counter tops, knotty cherry cabinets, knotty pine ceilings, quartzite walls, and wood stove.

Free Wifi and Sirius Satellite radio and Pandora stations! The music plays through the speakers in the living room from the Grace Digital Radio unit located in the bedroom.

You'll see more stars than you've ever seen at night - because the cabin is away from city lights. It is set back into birch and pine trees for a cozy feel. Bayfield is just a short 12 minute drive away - and the new Legendary Waters Casino is only 5 minutes away! Also just a couple minutes away is Little Sand Bay, where you can go kayaking and hiking.

About Rick Hauser

I'm related to the Hauser's who run the Hauser Farm (apples, flowers, berries, wine tasting and more) So - go check that out too!

Rick Hauser purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Rick Hauser chose Bayfield

There are so many great things to do in the Bayfield area - from artsy shops, to sailing, to mountain biking and hiking, seeing the sea caves or light houses, touring the Apostle Islands, and more. This location is nice and secluded - where you can see thousands of stars at night - but still be close enough to Bayfield to enjoy what the town has to offer (just a 12 minute drive)

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is pet friendly, and gives you the peace and quiet you are looking for. Extremely private. Amazing new Queen Serta iCloud Savant bed with adjustable base with massage action and 'Zero G' via remote. Amazing display of white lights on pine trees in the forest in back (turn on via remote from bedroom). Free Amazon Prime movies and free Wifi, and Sirius or Pandora music in bedroom, living room, and back deck (selectable) Complimentary popcorn, coffee, chocolates - and even dog treats for your dog! You may see deer, black bear, bald eagles, foxes, and more. Certified Wildlife Habitat and Travel Wisconsin Green Certified. Fully upgraded in unique, peaceful, serene setting - for year round use. Amazing snow displays on the pine trees in the winter and driveway is plowed after each snow. Amazing fall colors.

Very nice cabin

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cabin in the woods. Loved the peace and quiet. Short distance from Bayfield. Also was able to take a day trip from the cabin to Duluth, Minnesota. Nice quiet roads to walk the dog on.

Remote, Cozy Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderfully cozy stay in a quiet, remote and quaint cabin! The fireplace is to die for and the bed was so incredibly comfy! Rick provided detailed information about our stay and the cabin and we felt right at home.

Owner's Response: Thanks Karen -- yes - people never want to get out of bed! The fireplace is especially nice with a few feet of snow on the ground and the holiday lights on the snow covered pines in back - as you sip a glass of wine at night in the magical lit forest :-) I'm glad you felt at home... I hope to have you back again soon! Thanks for staying!

Very Good

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our holiday weekend in Rick's cabin. This was our second visit and we again had a great time with our little dog. We are so happy that places allow us to bring our pug friend along. We had a couple of cool nights which allowed us to have a fire in the wood burning stove at night, very cozy. Rick's cabin is always clean and comfortable.

Thanks again for a great stay Rick.

Just what we needed!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend at Rick's cabin! It was nothing short of relaxing, romantic, and just what we needed! Rick has created a perfect cabin the woods with all the things you could imagine you would need and more! We hiked the area, went to Bayfiled, tried to check out the ice caves, and then got to come back to a cozy, romantic cabin. Loved our nights by the fire with wine and games. On the last night we enjoyed a glass of wine out by the lit up trees in the back! So awesome! Our beagle Cooper was having a ball and loved the deep snow and all the new smells! I love that Rick allows you to bring your fur baby! We want to return in the Fall, I am sure the trees are breath taking! We will be back!! Thank you Rick for sharing your little slice of Heaven!!

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 3 nights/2 days with my dog. There is a lot to do in the area but we stayed close to home just to relax and reboot. The cabin was lovely...furnished very comfortably and had everything we could have wanted. The walks outside were beautiful and the weather was perfect. My dog enjoyed all the new scents and new areas to explore. I could not have asked for more.
