The main level is an open space which includes a kitchen, complete with all cooking utensils, updated appliances, dishwasher, microwave, an island with counter seating for five, a dining area, and great room. Also on the main level are two bedrooms and a full bath. It all opens up to large chalet windows with great panoramic lake views. A large deck complete with a gas grill overlooks the lake and dock area. An attached 10x10 screened porch is furnished with adirondack chairs creating a relaxing area to enjoy.

The lower level family room has two double futons and a single chair/sleeper, a woodburning stove, flat screenTV/DVD player, bar/sink area, and a small refrigerator.

You will be conveniently located just minutes from several golf courses, a casino, restaurants, attractions, area events, and festivals. The cabin is a recreational paradise with many lakes nearby and snowmobile, ATV, hiking, cross-country skiing, and biking trails. Bird-watching can often be combined with a leisurely paddle on the lake. Experienced fishing guides are also available.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying at the Waterfront Cabin on Placid Lake. Doug and Gloria are great hosts, and believe me this is not a cabin. I wish my house was this nice. Had lots of fun on the lake fishing, paddle boating, kayaking and swimming. Made some s'mores by the fire pit and grilled out using the new gas grille. We have already reserved the 'cabin' for next year.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin met our needs beautifully. We were a family of 8. We had our daughter and son-in-law with a family of 2 little ones and our daughter from Washington. The main floor was an open concept so we could all be there and not feel crowded. There was a private space for everyone. The lake was so clear. The owners were very accommodating, making sure to our stay was perfect.

Another great visit

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Gloria and Doug for another year of great family memories at your cabin. We will be back next year, for our 5th year of fun! Your cabin is so inviting, impeccably clean, and well stocked from kitchen to games to fire pit chairs. A pontoon rental from Hayward Power Sports always adds to our enjoyment since we love spending our days tooling around the lakes for fishing and swimming. We got to spend some time with you guys this year and it was sure memorable. My 85 year old dad had an amazing cabin week, too! Thank you so much. I will recommend your place to everyone!!

Beautiful "cabin" on the Lake!

  • 4 of 5

We truly loved our stay at Gloria and Doug's "cabin" while vacationing in Hayward. To call this house a cabin is truly not accurate. It is an immaculate dwelling that is more of a house than a cabin. Don't get me wrong. It's decor is rustic and has an up north feel to it but it has every convenience needed. When Doug told me that it was fully stocked and all we had to do was bring ourselves, he wasn't joking! They even had a crock pot, sunscreen and swim towels for us to use! The only drawback was no air conditioning but we had fans to help keep us cool. For those who may not appreciate the heat, it would be good to bring fans along. The basement stayed cool but the upstairs was a little warm. Not that I minded that but I prefer the heat to being cold any day- my husband, not so much.😉? We will definitely come back! Thank you Doug and Gloria for allowing us to stay at your "cabin"!!!! It was one of the highlights of our vacation.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two adults, two kids) and another family of three (with one toddler) had a wonderful time at this cabin! The lake is very clear and the kids had a lot of fun swimming, going in the paddleboat and kayaking. Not to mention roasting s'mores outside by the fire pit at night. So much was taken care of—we really appreciated Doug's hospitality. So lucky to have a nice warm weekend in June with beautiful moonrises every night right outside the cabin!
