About the property

Cabin On Birkie & Camba Trails.

Modern timber frame cabin built in 2009. Open floor plan designed for gathering with family and friends. Main level kitchen opens right into the family room with a wood burning stove. The center of the kitchen boasts a timber frame table that seats 10-12. Adjacent to the sitting area is a 'bump out' with extra space for relaxing, napping or sleeping. There is a pass through space in the wall from the entry that allows firewood to be set right next to the wood burning stove. Two sliding glass doors exit the kitchen space to bring you out to the spacious deck or a screened in porch with a gas grill.

The second and third levels are lofted and open to the space below. The second level has a bedroom, bath and sitting area with a spiral staircase that will take you up to the loft space. The loft (and the two levels below) offers beautiful views inside and out. We overlook the Namekagon River Valley to the West. We are nestled right up the woods and the Birkie trail to our East and South.

The structure of the cabin is concrete. The floors on the main and lower level are concrete. The lower level is encased in concrete which keeps it quiet and holds a consistent temperature. The walls in the lower level are lined with corrugated metal to allow skis and bikes to be moved in and out. There is a bedroom, bunk room, bathroom, wax room (for waxing skis) and sauna in the lower level. The washer and dryer are located on this level as well. There is a walk out that will bring you underneath the deck where there is an outdoor shower and access to the large yard.

There is in-floor heat on all levels. The upper levels are heated further by the wood burning stove.

About Scott Brown

We live in Minneapolis and getaway to our slice of heaven in Hayward. I grew up in Milwaukee and my wife in Iowa. We met in college at Iowa State and settled in Minnesota.

For years we have made the drive to Hayward for the Birkebeiner and loved the energy of the race and the surrounding community. It has a magic about it. As life often works, many things fell into place effortlessly and next thing we knew, we were buying some property on the Birkie trail and building this beautiful cabin.

We love our cabin and its close proximity to all the silent sports. We recently have had children and are not able to get up here as often as we would like. We love the area so much that it made sense to open up our cabin for others to enjoy it too.

Scott Brown purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Scott Brown chose Northwest

We have designed our cabin for comfort and relaxation. We wanted a space that we could come and have quiet and solitude. We also wanted this space to easily house our extended family and lend itself to being together. We went the extra mile and outfitted the cabin with thoughtful amenities.

Further, this community provides year round entertainment and enjoyment for all types of activities - skiing, snow mobiling, snow shoeing, hiking, biking, boating, ATVing, fishing, hunting, etc.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with the views of the Namekagon River Valley. The sunrise, the sunsets, the fall colors and the stars at night. We loved that we walk a few minutes to the Birkie trail and can ski for hours.

We added many unique architectural features inside the home. We love to sit in different areas of the cabin, enjoying different views of the inside and out.

We added the 'bump out' (L-shaped seating area by the wood burning stove) to feel part of the outside. At night, if you lay here you can see the stars. It is the best!

We purposely do not have wifi, cable or phone service in the cabin. So much of our lives is connected to technology. We come here to get away from these things. There is cell service available in the area.

Perfect Cabin in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our group could not have been happier with this cabin. We have stayed in others in the Hayward area and this worked for our group perfectly. The main great room of the cabin was ideal - with all of the modern amenities you'd hope for. The over-sized dining room table was awesome for gathering everyone around it. Only a few short miles into Hayward, it was great for the couple of times we had to run into town to pick up random items. The cabin is perfect for a secluded relaxing weekend, however, some of our group wanted to watch movies and football game, so we did bring a TV which was not a big deal at all. Overall, I would recommend this cabin to anyone interested. Great stay and great times!

Beautiful and Secluded Custom Built House

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people stay in this large house and we had plenty of room. The Yard was big enough for us to set up three yard games: Bags, Ladders, and Beersbie. We would definitely consider this location for next year's get together.

A plus was the bar that some of the guys went to that was only 1.05 miles away. Nice to have something that close.

Perfect northwoods cabin vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin, very well maintained with all the amenities you could ask for. Was a perfect location for our golf trip, tucked away and isolated but still close enough to downtown Hayward and activities in the area. Definitely would recommend to others.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a house to be a "base-camp" as we toured the Hayward/Ashland area on motorcycles. The house was beautiful and spotless!! There was plenty of room to relax inside, and also on the large deck and screen porch. The large windows provided a view of the trees and sunset. There were plenty of dishes and every appliance needed. We would definitely come back if we wanted to stay in the area.

We loved this cabin and would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was so beautiful and extremely quiet. There was plenty of room for air mattresses in the ski room and in both of the lofts. The cabin was very clean upon arrival and the instruction binder that Scott left made everything very easy to find. I would highly recommend this cabin for your next vacation.
