Join us for a great Northwoods vacation—5 bedrooms, 4 baths along with 2 additional sleeping areas (loft and living room sofa sleeper). LISTED RATES FOR 2018 ARE FOR 6 GUESTS. We are permitted for 17+ occupancy in the LODGE but we will tailor your quote to the size of your group (adults and children).
Main Street Hayward is on the west side of town. We are 5 miles from these great downtown shops, bakery, restaurants and post office. We are less than 5 miles from hospital and library. So relax and enjoy the lake, but make a quick trip to town to enjoy all it has to offer also.
During 2018 we will be able to accommodate larger groups. We have purchased a lakeside cottage, the WOOD HAVEN COTTAGE (www.vrbo.com/1108380). This 1965 cottage is located down the dirt driveway adjacent to WOOD HAVEN LODGE. It is a 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath cottage that sits within 40 feet of the Nelson Lake shoreline. It has a four-seasons porch, which also serves as the third bedroom. With new furniture, furnishings and appliances, this picturesque cottage allows us to provide two vacation lake homes which, when rented simultaneously, can provide accommodations for groups of 21-25.
WOOD HAVEN LODGE is a newer (2012) 2-story walkout with a loft. Approximately 2400 sq. ft. of quarter-sawn oak hardwood floors and tile. This cabin has year-round accommodations on 3072 acre Nelson Lake. WIFI is available throughout the home.
MAIN FLOOR (Living room, kitchen, bath, deck, and master bedroom suite): The main floor has a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, living room with flat panel TV and a huge gorgeous 3-sided wood burning fireplace, and a full bath. The main floor also has access to the raised deck spanning the entire lake side of the cabin, which is great for viewing the wildlife & enjoying that A.M. cup of coffee.
The main floor master bedroom suite (approximately 300 sq. ft.) was added in 2014. This suite includes a queen hickory bed set, gas fireplace, executive bath, walk-in closet and sliding glass doors to the deck. This bedroom accommodates a Pack-n-Play and air mattresses, if needed.
LOFT LEVEL (2 bedrooms, bath, and loft area): On the top floor you will find a bedroom with a queen bed, a second bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds and small TV/DVD player (perfect for kids) and a full bath. The loft area can be for reading and relaxing after a day of fishing and recreation. If needed, the loft can accommodate 2 twin air mattresses for children.
LOWER LEVEL (Family room, 2 bedrooms, bath and laundry room): The lower level has stunning log walls with a gas fireplace, 70' flat screen TV with full surround sound, DVD player and has sports channels. There is also a 3/4 bath and cozy bedroom with queen bed. The washer/dryer is on the lower level also.
The second lower level bedroom was added in 2016. It is another queen bedroom (120 sq. ft.) and can accommodate a Pack-n-Play or twin air mattress.
LOCATION: Wood Haven Lodge sits about 40' back from Four Seasons Road, which is a dead-end road. It is a short jaunt of about 150 feet to the 120' of undeveloped shoreline. The fishing is excellent for all panfish, bass, northern and walleye on this lake— 31 miles of shoreline with maximum depth of 33 feet. There is a public boat landing about 5 minutes away. Minnow Jim's Bait and Tackle Shop is 5 minutes away also. There is a restaurant within walking distance at the end of Four Seasons Road.
