We had 9 of our family stay for a quick weekend. The spot and setting were terrific. The lake is close to the house and the house allowed great views of the lake. We did not get any fishing done(dang it), but made use of lawn games, the fire pit and just playing in the water. We did see just a few people on the lake and we were unable to bring our boat due to mechanical issues, but the small lake looks outstanding for boating and fishing. The cabin was able to host all 9 of us and we cooked all of our meals on site. The grill worked very well. We did have a minor issue with no hot water in half of the house (an addition), however, Stacy was on top of it and had it repaired in a couple of hours. We would recommend this house to any family that loves to be on a lake, spend time with their friends and family to play and to just relax lakeside.
Great distance from home, no sandy beach :(
This house had plenty of room for 5 adults and 4 children. Huge deck, lots of yard. Lots of firewood!
The only real down side to the house was there really wasn't a sandy beach as advertised. It was Rocky. Also the bedroom lighting and working outlets were a nuisance.
But we all enjoyed our stay.
The owner and I are glad that you all had a good time at this beautiful cabin.... We are sorry about the beach; it has been sandier in the past and recently with the rising and falling lake levels, it has become more gravelly... I have changed the description on the site to be sand/gravel, as again, depending upon the water levels, the amount of sand vs. gravel changes... it is still a very nice elevation and a great area for swimming off the dock! We have also had our electrician make some helpful changes for the lighting and outlets... so we hope to have you back again sometime to enjoy the improvements! :-)
Great Cabin, Great Lake, Overall Great Experience!
We greatly enjoyed our time here. Even with rain we were able to have a lot of fun because of the great space in the cabin. The yard is great for bags and the fire pit is perfect fit!
The owner and I are so glad that you enjoyed your time at the cabin! It IS a great space, both outside and inside... and cozy on a rainy day, especially with the wood-burning fireplace! Hopefully the next time you stay, it will be sunnier though!
Great cabin for everyone
Just returned from a great stay at this cabin. Like mentioned in other reviews, everyone enjoyed the flat approach to the lake and the nice beach area and sandy bottom Lake. The deck and wooden swing were nice options for watching the beautiful sunsets. On the inside, we appreciated that the place was clean and nice, but not too over the top where you are afraid to sit on the furniture or not put down a table cloth. The spacious bedrooms gave each family enough room for a little privacy . The dining table was perfect for playing games. The only notable thing was that the living room and screen porch in the pictures seemed a bit bigger than reality. Don't get me wrong there's still plenty of room but it was just different than expected. Stacy, the property manager i believe, always responded quickly and checked in with us when we were there. I would definitely recommend this place.
We are so glad to hear you family could enjoy all that this property has to offer! It is a well accommodated place for groups. We hope you can come visit again and make more wonderful memories!
Owner, where are you?
My extended family has rented this property for the past 2 years; first year great, 2nd year with a new owner still good but needing some work on the house, this year, still slipping. I will give some real positives to the property and that is the yard and beachfront. One of the best beaches for small children on the lake with a wonderfully large dock. Beach toys and life jackets are supplied, kitchen is pretty well stocked and the master bedroom on one side of the house was nice for grandma & grandpa, bunk beds for kids in back room a plus. Sunsets are enjoyable to watch. Another positive is Stacy, the property manager, who is very attentive to needs and always available. On the down side, when there are hot spells, as there was this year and last, the house becomes a sweltering inferno. There are no blinds/curtains in the living room and one front bedroom to block the sun, also no ceiling fan in the 2nd front bedroom. We had to make a run to Walmart to buy fans to help relieve ourselves, so bring some with you! Appliances are in need of replacement; dryer does not work well, stove oven disgusting. My last major complaint is that the new owner does not respond to customer inquiries for rentals. We were prepared to rent another time, but one month later, still have not received a reply, nor has the property manager. This is not how VRBO rentals are meant to operate. We've since found a different rental for next year.
As the property manager, I am truly sorry about the non-responsiveness of the owner... it IS a very nice property, other than the out-dated appliances, and I am working hard to persuade him to make some needed changes... in the meantime, he HAS become more involved again, and fans ARE being provided, so you do not need to bring any with you! Things are better there already, and we invite you to come back and experience them!
Great for a family!! Beautiful getaway!
We stayed with 3 kids for a week here and it was amazing. The cabin is spacious, clean, cozy, and truly felt like a home away from home. The kids loved the bunk beds! We fell in love with the view and it was great being so close to the water. We caught a catfish and many bass right off the pier! There was a welcome basket with s'mores ingredients and a game closet we took advantage of. The kids loved hunting for eye catching stones down by the water. We can't wait to come back. This is year 3 for us visiting the Hayward area and our first and definitely not the last time to stay here.
Again, the owner and I love to share his beautiful cabin with folks who take good care of it and enjoy it so much! We enjoy hearing renters' tales and look forward to helping folks create more wonderful Up North memories :-)
Stony Brook Shores is ideally located on a beautiful clear deep-water lake, in the beautiful woods of Northwestern WI, yet close to small town amenities, available only 2 minutes away! Amazing fishing and swimming right out your front door!
