About Mike and Jackie Egan
We built this cabin in 2005/2006. We have actually owned and sold 4 other cabins on this lake and have loved every one of them. This is a wonderful vacation area with so much to do. Our kids have spent the last 15 years experiencing all that Wisconsin has to offer from the lakes to the trails, from the restaurants to the shops. We love it here and hope you find the cabin super comfy, warm and inviting and that you can create so many wonderful memories here. Mike and I were both born in MN. Mike was born in Coon Rapids and has lived in the area most of his life. He has been working in the lumber and sales industry for the last 27 years. I was born in rural Hutchinson, MN and moved into the "big city" after graduating from college at SDSU. I have been a Realtor for 26 years already. Of course, I started when I was 9 years old so I am still quite young:-) hahaha. We have two amazing kids that we spend most all of our free time with. We are a tight-knit family and have a large extended family with cabins on Nelson Lake as well. Every weekend is like a Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday for us up here. In our free time we enjoy projects around the house, playing with our 2 shitzu-poodle dogs Theo (4) and Sage (1), fishing, boating, four-wheeling, and tending to our gardens and 8 chickens.
Mike and Jackie Egan purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Mike and Jackie Egan chose Hayward
This property just feels like home :-)You will love the warmth when you first walk-thru the stone-columned entrance. HUGE vaults shine above you with knotty pine and large clean windows facing the lake welcome in all of the sunshine that mother nature has offered up! The home is decorated with log and wildlife accents everywhere. No detail is missed here. Everything you need in the kitchen, is there for your use. And if you are missing some basic toiletries, we even have some spares you can purchase if necessary. If you want to come to just relax and stay indoors - you will have plenty to do with the big-screen TV, DVD player, a movie library, Wi-Fi, Roku, puzzles, books, and games all stocked for you. If your are more inclined to be active outdoors, there is a clear view to the lake and a place to dock your boat, should you choose to bring one. Summertime activities right outside your door include, swimming at the beach just a short 2 minute walk from the front door, fishing (fish house again located a short 2 minute walk from the cabin), trails right out the door for four-wheeling, snowmobiling and the like, jet skiing, tubing, or just sitting by one of the two firepits for drinks and conversation. You can even rent a boat right here! We have a gas grill ready with all the tools to cook up some good food right out on the large 28x12 maintenance free deck. A nice picnic table is there for your use or tons of room for you to rest on your cabin chairs. Did we mention we have TWO great fire pits?? We've tried to think of everything ... because we know how valuable vacation time is for you, your family and your friends. We want to welcome you to our home and hope you make some amazing memories while you are here! Let us know if we can do anything for you!
What makes this Cabin unique
The views from the front of the cabin are amazing! The sunrises and sunsets will take your breath away ... if you can get up early or stay up late enough:-) You can literally walk to a park which is shared by the Nelson Lake Lodges Association, to which our home is a part. You can walk to a restaurant only 5 minutes away at the Nelson Lake Landing or to Park Island Resort. The Landing even has a gas pump should you need some for your watercraft. For a change of scenery off the lake, you can head 10 minutes into town and shop on the main street and venture into a number of restaurants, jewelry stores, clothing stores and more. You MUST go get some of the best ice cream in all of the upper Midwest! It's called West's Hayward Dairy located on west 2nd street right in Hayward:-) Hayward also hosts numerous events at the Scheer Lumberjack Shows and Village. You can see anything from log rolling, speed sawing, pole climbing, ax throwing and more in the event arena or wander right into the village and all the quaint stores and gift shops. And if you enjoy bright lights and casinos ... head on over to the LCO Casino where you can play the slots, poker, craps, roulette and more. You'll find live music, good food at the buffet and restaurant, and lots of laughter.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We had another great weekend at the cabin. This is our second year staying and everything was as described. Owners were very quick to respond with any communications. We came in the heart of winter and everything was plowed and cleared so access was not an issue. Great place and highly recommend.
Thanks for coming again Sara!! It's been a pleasure having you guys return again and we are so grateful for your continued love of the Hayward area and the awesome event! There's always so much going on around the community, lakes, and trails - no matter what time of year it is:-) We look forward to having you stay with us next year. We will be in touch soon!

It was an excellent location to ride our atv's from!!! Beautiful views of the lake as well! Carbon was well equipped with everything we could have ever needed!
Beautiful lake home.
Our family enjoyed our stay at this beautiful lake home. It has everything you need from a fully stocked kitchen to games for the kids. We would definitely recommend.
Thanks so much for your kind review! We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves:-) We welcome you back any time! You should come see us in the winter months! It's gorgeous up here then too with the wood-burning fireplace crackling and the snowfall coming down..... not that I'm wishing it to come yet - because we have a lot of summer to enjoy yet!
