Journey into the Chequamegon National Forest and discover the beautiful nine mile long waters of Moose Lake. The lake reaches depths up to 32 feet and is fed by three rivers and many springs. A 'Class A' musky lake, both the elusive musky and the walleye provide sport in this healthy root beer-colored flowage. Bass and pan fishing are also fun for all ages.
Canoeing, kayaking, boating, water skiing/tubing, and swimming are additional favorite past times on the lake. The area is also popular for its miles of fat tire biking and hiking trails and for its many golf courses.
Moose Lake is located 25 miles east of Hayward, Wisconsin. The Hayward area has much to offer.... fine dining and entertainment, 7 golf courses, biking/hiking trails, the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame, the LCO Casino, and shopping to name a few. Special Events include the Musky Festival, LCO Honor the Earth Powwow, Lumberjack World Championships, Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival, and the Moose Lake Festival.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: The Hayward area has been a big part of our family's vacation life since our kids were babies, both in summer and in winter. We purchased a cabin in 1998 and have enjoyed every minute we can spend on Moose Lake and in the area. In 2014 Mike and Deb moved from Wisconsin to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for a job change for Mike, who now teaches at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. Deb is a former elementary and middle school teacher. Daughter Sarah, a pediatric dentist, married Karl, an orthodontist, up in the Hayward area and they are now the parents of our first grandchild. (There are many dental discussions when we get together with them!) Son Luke works for UTC Aerospace Systems in the Twin Cities; his wife, Megan, is finishing her Masters through the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Why the Owner Chose Hayward, WI, USA:
Our small family cabin is next door, and we became good friends with the former owners of The Otter Cabin through the years. When they retired to Florida, we purchased the cabin from them for future family possibilities. We are the only two cabins at the end of our road, and this also helps us maintain some control over the peace and quiet we'd always enjoyed on our part of the lake. We remodeled the cabin, purchased new furnishings, and started renting the summer of 2012.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Otter Cabin's neighbors are the lake, the forest, and our small family cabin. We only see a few lights at night across the water, and, most summers, our neighborhood family of otters is spotted swimming past the dock. There is a good boat landing close by and plenty of parking space for your trailer at the cabin.
