About Viki McKay
The cabin is owned by my brother, a construction foreman, and me, a prior Director of Human Resources now self-employed in the canvas business. We love to fish the lake in summer and winter and we snowmobile the Tuscobia Trail as well as all the other trails in the area. We are well known at The Waterfront, Earl's Marine, Angler's and trail's End.
Viki McKay purchased this House in 2002
Why Viki McKay chose North Woods Beach
In 2000 my brother mentioned he would like to own a place up north for snowmobiling. He hatched the idea and I pursued it and here we are. We love our home and work on it whenever we are here.
What makes this House unique
We put on a brand new metal roof in the summer of 2014.

The property exceeded our expectations.
Your ability to wash and dry clothes really enhanced the stay. We really enjoyed the relationship we developed with the caretaker of the property. Typical Northland Hospitality from the locals enhance the stay. We had no problem with unwanted insects as a previous reviewer eluded. The owner was very prompt in answering questions we had prior to our arrival at the property. If anything kept the review from being a total 5 out of 5 would be the fact that we had to take out trash with us upon departure. The kitchen was well equipped. We didn't want for anything, EVEN TV!
Although the area around Hayward, Wisconsin offers mini lodging opportunities, we would probably pick this property again.
Nice place, good location
Sorry we were only able to spend four days here. This is a spacious, fully equipped, fairly modern house; it's too nice for me to call it a cabin. We were happy to find two actual bedrooms instead of partially divided "sleeping areas" or lofts. Plenty of room to park our truck and 17' boat. Easy access to the boat launch, although if you intend to spend multiple days boating LCO you will need to launch / pull your boat daily. Only a few minutes from downtown Hayward, and centrally located among several other lakes; we spent most our time on the smaller lakes.
The only minor drawback, as I get older, was shortage (not complete lack) of air conditioning. The outside temp and humidity both reached 90 for two days (not common up here), but the several fans and a small window AC unit in the dining area kept the interior reasonably comfortable until the sun set.
This was our fifth VRBO rental, and my personal favorite so far.
Thank you for this positive review. We would welcome you back to our place. Air conditioning message is noted. As you said, it isn't often that hot up there but we do want our guests to be comfortable.
Perfect location! Very clean and spacious!
We had a great time and highly recommend this cabin. The owner is very kind and quick to answer any questions. My whole family was very impressed. The kitchen is fully stocked and their rooms are very cozy. Love the cabin decor! It is by the boat loading dock! Comes with a gas grill and patio furniture! Dvds and games for the family! All around awesome experience!
4th of July vacation.
We enjoyed our stay. My first impression when I walked on the deck to find a dead duck was a little surprising. The cabin was very nice inside. The kitchen had an infestation of ants. There were tv's in the cabin but only Dvd's to watch, no signal. The area was a very quiet location with lake access across the street and we enjoyed walking around the area. The wooden deck and steps were very slippery when wet.
Thank you for the review. We acknowledge that a dead duck greeting is not favorable and we are sorry about this. Wild life is prolific in the Northwoods. We have had black bears, newborn fawns and playful foxes in our yard along with a profusion of deer.
We are happy you were able to enjoy the serene setting.
We had a great time at this cabin, everything was as advertised!
Awesome! The house is prepped with everything we could thing of which was great just to come to the lake and relax! Great location just across the street from boat ramp!
We are so glad that you enjoyed our cabin. We love repeat guests. Look us up next year!
