About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom with 2 fireplaces, spa tub; on Class A Musky Fishing Lake

Imagine waking up in the morning and relaxing with a cup of coffee out on your own deck overlooking a beautiful lake... or walking down to the dock and taking out the pontoon boat for a sunrise boat ride! This beautiful cedar sided cottage has 4 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms (2 with tub/shower combinations, and 1 with a Jacuzzi tub), 2 gas fireplaces, a lower level recreation area with a large TV, wet bar, and game table; not to mention the amazing view from the front deck and fire ring overlooking the lake! There is a dock with a full-sized pontoon boat included, a gas grill for those family barbeques, as well as a grassy area for croquet and bean bag toss games!

The cottage is perfectly located... nestled amongst the pines and oaks on the shore of Placid Lake, it has a wonderful wilderness feel... yet 3 miles away is a fine dining restaurant, 4 miles away is a golf course, and only 10 miles away is the Birkiebiner Ski (Hiking) Trail! There is also a snowmobile trail just yards away from the cabin!

About Stacy Hughes

Chickadee Cabin has been in my family since 1996 when it was built. Now a widower, and living elsewhere, I am pleased to share this special place for other families to enjoy now.

Stacy Hughes purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Stacy Hughes chose Northwest

My family loved sitting out on the deck, or by the fire in the fire ring, cooking S'mores and watching the sun go down over the lake! It was wonderful to be in the quiet bay, and able to catch Muskies right from the dock! We also enjoyed taking our pontoon boat out onto the (Placid) Lake, which is part of the Tiger Cat Flowage, giving us many acres on which to fish and explore!

What makes this cabin unique

Chickadee Cabin is unique... being in a beautiful wilderness lakefront setting with amazing boating and fishing, yet in close proximity to amenities such as a bar/restaurant in case you don't feel like cooking one evening! Other on-site amenities include a pontoon boat, a gas/charcoal grill, and a Jacuzzi tub!

Relaxed to the Max

  • 5 of 5

This is an immaculately clean, spacious property that is exactly as described. A family group of 3 couples and one adult had maximal opportunities for interaction without compromising the need for privacy when desired. The property was complimented by a pontoon boat for fishing or simply touring the lake. Stacey (the property manager) was responsive to all needs, and quite pleasant. In sum, this was an ideal property for a north woods vacation.

Very clean and wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Chickadee is a beautiful property. Nicely laid out for large family getaways. Property Managers were on top of any request. Unfortunately the fish were not biting but still plenty to do.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Chickadee! The property is definitely accommodating for large groups, and with the pontoon and kayak available there's never a shortage of fun. We hope you can visit again, and that the fish cooperate next time!

Chickadee Cabin: Spacious, Comfortable, Inviting!

  • 5 of 5

Chickadee Cabin provided a comfortable, spacious setting for our large family to gather. When we arrived, we were welcomed by the call of the loons! The cabin was well-appointed and cozy. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need and the cabin and accessories made us feel right at home. The grassy area next to the cabin was perfect for lawn games and we made good use of the pontoon every day for good fishing and swimming. Stacy made sure we found everything in order, and was available for any questions or directions we needed. Chickadee Cabin provided us with a wonderful week!

Owner's Response: We are very glad that Chickadee could become your home away from home for the week! We aim to make your vacation place as accommodating, relaxing, and comfortable as possible. Think of the loon calls as a call to come stay with us again!

Had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This home was just as described. Every room was well appointed. Two families fit comfortably. Unfortunately the weather was cold and somewhat rainy, but it turned out to be great for the fishermen. The lake turned out to be good for fishing. Bass, Northern, and an occasional Muskie. The fire pit had more than ample firewood, and because of the cold weather was used every evening, and sometimes during the day. The inside fireplace was used a couple of evenings and warmed up the house quickly. The pontoon boat with the trolling motor was a plus, as we brought our bass boat and the men were able to go fishing together. The dock accommodations worked well. Cannot comment on the swimming because of the weather, but can tell you the swimmers had a great time in Hayward! They have everything from small quaint shops to food markets to Walmart. Would highly recommend this home and surrounding area.

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay despite the less-than-ideal weather! This property certainly does have the amenities to accommodate the unpredictable conditions. We hope you stay with us again and have a chance to enjoy some warmer weather, great swimming, and more fishing!

Chickadee Cabin is located on the shores of crystal clear Placid Lake, just 11 miles from Hayward, WI. Placid Lake is the southern most part of the Tiger Cat Flowage chain of six lakes for a total of 1700 acres of fantastic fishing and recreational boating. As a Class A Musky Lake, the lake chain is full of muskies, large mouth bass, and walleye! The cabin is nestled among beautiful pines and oaks, providing a sense of wilderness... imagine sitting by the campfire overlooking the lake as the sun is setting... yet there is the convenience of a bar/restaurant at Lakeview Golf and Pizza, only 4 miles away! So besides fishing and boating, if your family or group is interested in golfing, there is that family-friendly 9 hole, par 3 golf course just 4 miles away! Many other attractions and activities are available just a short drive away in Hayward; such as great shops, a movie theatre, restaurants, live music, festivals, lumberjack shows, the Wilderness Walk (with animals), the National Fishing Hall of Fame, the Birkiebiner Ski/Hiking trail, mini golf, Hookstone Winery, etc.!
