Private Lakeside Log Cabin - Family/Pet Friendly - Experience The Northwoods!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedroom, Loft, 1 Bathroom, Large Private Yard On Lake.

An authentic log cabin tucked away between birch and pine on the quiet side of Nelson Lake. Perfect for family or couples looking to escape the hustle of modern living, or explore the wide expanses of wilderness surrounding the cabin. Great location only miles from Hayward, yet secluded enough to give your family privacy. It is not uncommon to have deer, turtles, swan, loons, fox, chipmunks, all manner of birds, and even the occasional bear visit! Great launchpad for fishing, swimming, hunting, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, or to explore the many unique Hayward boutique shops. A large yard on the lake leaves plenty of room for campfires and smores, or a game of croquet. We hope you, your family, and friends enjoy this little slice of nature as much as we have.

2 Bedrooms (Full Beds) with additional open loft (Queen Bed). 1 Bathroom with bath/shower. Clean and fully stocked kitchen, and living room (with DIRECTV and DVD) to unwind at end of the day. Large deck for gatherings or dinner overlooking the lake. Swings and sandbox to keep the little ones entertained. Dock for access by boat.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Why Brian chose Northwest

Nice cabin for family getaway. We had fun skiing in the Hayward area. I bet it would be fun in the summer.

Private, Comfortable, and Affordable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cabin! Upon arrival we were amazed by how clean and welcoming the cabin was, even with the snow covered ground. Being that we went off season, there wasn't as much to do as some other visitors noted, but that was fine by us. Inside communal area is very open with plenty of windows to soak in the beautiful sunrise views. Outside was quiet, secluded, with only one direct neighbor (which I'm sure was more visible being winter). It was also a great perk for us to be able to bring our pups for the vacation. I would honestly say the only downfall of the cabin is that there is no on-site laundry... the last thing I want to do on vacation is sit at a laundromat. It ended up fine since we had no major clean ups we needed to do, and had a shorter stay. But, for longer stays laundry would be a MAJOR plus to me.

We plan to save this on our list of "favorites" to come back next fall! Will definitely return again.

Sincerely wonderful place. Inside was clean, well cared for and had the 'vibe' that I'd want to be friends with the folks who own it. Outside, just lovely. Dogs were able to play happily all day long. Deck was perfect for reading, talking, working on puzzles, playing games. We made nice meals and baked cookies (that is, it's a nice kitchen area). And the beds were comfortable. I wish it was closer to my house so I could go more often and I do wish hiking trails were a bit closer to get to (we found one about a 20 minute drive away but there could have been closer ones).
