Get on to Grindstone! 4 Seasons of Fun on Cool Northwoods Lake

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type cabin


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

Breathe in the pine air! This beautiful lakefront cabin provides the best nature has to offer, along with comfort and convenience. Although it's tempting to relax in the knotty pine interior, it won't be long before you're beckoned outside to the sparkly, clear water. Dining on the deck is so relaxing with the splash of lake waves for background ambience.

Although our cabin has two conventional bedrooms,extra sleeping accomodations are available on the foldout sofa. Plus, a bonus room upstairs is available for the kids to hang out.

Grindstone Lake is one of the most desired lakes in the area. Whether you're boating, birdwatching, or basking, this 3100 acre lake will captivate you. The water right off our dock is shallow enough for the kids to be playing in the water while parents can stretch out on the lawn chairs and watch. There is an expansive area around the dock that is shallow and sandy, while the natural shoreline is still intact.

Perfect for girls getaway, close to Cranberry Fest in Stone Lake, and festivals in Hayward WI

About Pamela Thorpe

Monte and Pam Thorpe

We both work in healthcare-and working nights and weekends can be a real challenge. Therefore, we cherish time to get away. We treasure our time on Grindstone Lake.

Pamela Thorpe purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Pamela Thorpe chose Northwest

We waited years to find the place that has the perfect blend of Northwoods with easy access to the comforts of life.

It was also important to have ATV and snowmobile trails close by. We wanted a cabin that we could enjoy year round, and we believe this is the cabin of our dreams.

What makes this cabin unique

Hayward WI is a family friendly, activity laden community. There is always something going on in town!

Responsive Owners

Owners very accommodating. Answered our questions. Easy in and easy out. We had a brief "no water" issue which the owner quickly responded to. The main living/kitchen area has been updated (this is an older cabin) and well furnished. The bedrooms were small but the beds very comfortable. Would stay again. Good value and met our needs for the nights we stayed.

Drawbacks- the property was for sale and has no Wi-Fi or cable or even off-air TV. No dishwasher. No laundry facilities. No dressers in the bedrooms.

This is a beautiful cozy cabin! Loved staying here. It had everything we needed and was close to Hayward which was nice. Lake is VERY clear. Can see the bottom at at least 13 feet. Big beautiful lake which also connects to Lac Courte Orielles lake. Would stay here again!
