About the Property

3 Bedroom Lake Home Near Winter, Wi

The Yellow Bird on Barber has something for all ages. Our three bedroom, roomy home is located at the end of a private drive and sits on the east shore of a quiet lake and offers spectacular sunsets. Barber Lake and offers over 200 acres of water fun for all. Fantastic lake for fishing, water skiing, tubing, canoeing, swimming, or to enjoy the peace and quiet.

The Yellow Bird is approximately 75 feet from the waters edge with a gradual sloped lawn to the private sandy beach and dock. Our home has three bedrooms, one with and queen bed, one with a queen and a full bed and one with a king (as well as two twin cots, 2 youth mattresses and a sofa). One large bathroom with a shower, tub and vanity. A fully equipped kitchen with lake view from the kitchen sink.
Beautiful one acre yard with large playground, fire pit and even a kick ball field. Some Firewood is included with your stay. A row boat, canoe and swim raft come with the property and a 24 foot pontoon is available for weekly rental as well.


The property is located five minutes from the town of Winter with all your shopping needs and approximately twenty five minutes from Hayward with even more. This region is widely considered to be the fat tire (mountain biking) capital of the Midwest. 20 minutes to Stone Lake and their famous cranberry festival. Very close to A.T.V. And snowmobiling trails. The Tascobia trail! Kayaking ! Class A Muskie lakes all over the area ! Dozens of fine restaurants, bars and up north joints.
We hope you will give us a chance to share this wonderful retreat with your family and know that you will want to come back year after year.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hello, we are Patrick and Roxy McGuire. We live in the Hayward lakes area at a resort that Patrick manages. We have owned our Barber Lake home for ten years and when it is not being rented we use it as a retreat for our family and friends, including our five daughters and five grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Winter, WI, USA:
We spent two years searching for the perfect lake home while living near the Twin Cities. We focused on an large area, all the way from Alexandra, MN to Park Falls, WI. When we found the Winter/Hayward area we knew that we had found our spot. Quiet, but not to quiet, small, but not to small, close to Minneapolis, Madison, etc, but not to close. We love it and so will you. We take care of the property personally and will do our best to see that you have a memorable vacation experience.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our unique property is great for a large family, with lots of room to breathe but also wonderful for small groups who enjoy the peace and quiet. The Yellow Bird is comfortably furnished and tastefully decorated. Our home is situated on South Barber Lake which is very private and calm with wonderful sunsets. If you crave a little more action, hop over to Barber lake via the channel for more room to explore.
