About Stacy Hughes
Stacy has been managing numerous beautiful lake properties since 2011, and Chickadee Cabin in particular for the past several years. She has enjoyed helping the owner share this wonderful cabin with other families. He says, "it 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."
Why Stacy Hughes chose Hayward
The owner indicates that his 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 (only 4 miles away!) 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 grill, and a Jacuzzi tub!
The house was beautiful and the boat really made our trip that much better. Very warm and cozy with plenty of space for our family. Will definitely be back!
Wisconsin 6 Annual Trip
We loved the location of this property. The views were beautiful and it is close enough to Hayward ( 10 minutes) yet far enough out to have complete serenity.
Kitchen fully stocked, only thing missing was a bottle opener. Lots of spices and cooking utensils.
We were immediately pleased with the set up. We had 3 couples and each had our own bathroom and shower. The only issue we had was the furniture in den. It was really uncomfortable and the recliners on couch and loveseat were broke. The guys had to pull the footrests out and it wasn't easy. The bedroom downstairs was missing any type of window covering. So we had no privacy and the sun hit us right in the eyes every morning. We should have nailed a blanket up.
But we had an angel and her name was Stacy. She was surprised to hear about the furniture being broken. No past guests had ever complained. She was extremly apologetic and if it hadn't been a holiday weekend , would have tried to get new furniture. She brought over new pillows and even sheets when I let her know we needed these. She was AMAZING!!
The fishing was slow and we heard this was pretty much everywhere. We would recommend a fish cleaning station as we needed one. We loved taking the pontoon out.
We will be back as Stacy has informed us the owner is getting new furniture. I would take out a couple end tables or the bench as it was crowded.
Thanks Stacy you are truly a rare gem. !
Fun Female Family Getaway
Stacy was great to work with in the pre, during and post processing.
The cabin was great despite our rainy weather, plenty of room to spread out and create a cozy atmosphere. Kitchen is well equipped so cooking is a breeze. Definitely see myself coming back.
I'm happy I was able to make the processing work for you. :-) I"m sorry about the weather but it sounds as if your fun female family getaway was a success! We would love to have you return.
We had a wonderful stay at the Chickadee Cabin. It was very clean and comfortable. Would love to come back in the summer time and enjoy the lake.
We are happy you were comfortable and enjoyed your visit to Chickadee Cabin. Summer is a wonderful season to visit the Northwoods. We look forward to your return!
Relaxing environment for family gathering
We enjoyed our stay. The cabin had a great set up for our families to come together, relax, and visit. The kids enjoyed the room with bunk beds, exploring the cabin, and playing games. The jacuzzi tub made it easy to convince each kiddo to break away for bath time in the big tub.
We are so pleased the cabin worked out so perfectly for your families, Shauna. It's always good to hear that the kids were happy and enjoyed their time at the cabin as well.
Perfect for Thanksgiving!
The home was warm, spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen was perfect for the Thanksgiving meal preparation. Everyone enjoyed the holiday 'just like home'.
A special Thank You to Stacy, the property manager, for prompt attention to a minor request - on the holiday afternoon. We highly recommend this home and look forward to staying here again when we return to Hayward.
Tom and Sharon, thank you for your kind words. :-) We are so pleased you all had such a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and felt so at home! We will be happy to welcome you back any time.
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.!
