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!

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Doug and Gloria couldn't have been nicer! The place is beautiful, and clean as a whistle. Just a really nice set up. Everything is there, so you need not pack everything. 6 stars.

Perfect get away for MEA weekend, 3 bedroom 2 bathroom cabin

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. We where 2 adults and 4 kids (2 teens), we had plenty of room. Kids never got bored, went Kayaking, fishing, played pool, watched a movie, went to town and had camp fires at night. The cabin has a lot of character and is decorated with love. Very clean, kitchen was great equipped, found everything we needed. Didn't want to leave. Hosts where very welcoming.

Beautiful Fall Weekend Getaway With Everything (But Food) Provided

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin with plenty of space, felt like home immediately! We were able to make our meals for six easily with the all the kitchen necessities provided. Plenty of wood for the bonfire and inside stove. Wonderful, friendly hosts next door for any questions or needs. Located right on the lake with a new dock so could go fishing bright and early with ease. Great pool table and other games and amusements provided. We never had to go out (besides on the lake) for a wonderful, relaxing weekend. Definitely would love to stay again!
