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

Awesome Lakeview close to downtown Hayward

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two nights for the Chequamegon fat tire festival. The cabin was very clean and roomy for the three of us. The kitchen was well stocked and the bedrooms including the loft were quiet and comfortable. Will definitely stay again.

Gave suggestions for things to do. Answered all questions promptly. Great vacation! Can't wait to do it again.

Nice cottage on the lake

  • 4 of 5

Overall stay was great. Everything was very well maintained. We knew there was no tv and internet as the home is for sale. We did have people stop by randomly looking to view the home which is understandable. We had a great time and would recommend this to anyone interested in staying.

Cute cabin on beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is rustic, yet clean and comfortable. Pamela was responsive when I called with a couple of questions. Grindstone Lake is gorgeous and there is lots to do that is not far from the cabin. Our kids loved sleeping in the upstairs loft!

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 Hayward

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!


Chequamegon National Forest trails are nearby for cross country skiing, snow shoeing. They are spectacular, and provide both easy and challenging terrain.

We are conveniently located between Stone Lake, and Hayward, WI. Driving distance is less than 15 minutes to each of these towns where groceries and essentials are available. Small grocery/ gas available less than a mile from cabin.
