Beautiful handmade quilts cover beds. Full kitchen consists of beautiful Amish made cabinets from hickory. There is a bathroom complete with shower. Cabin is 75 feet from lake with 100 feet of shoreline. Other homes/cabins surround Smith Lake so site is not secluded. Lake bottom is sandy and water is clear which is perfect for swimming. Pier located on property is perfect for fishing or securing your boat. Great fishing right off the pier for crappy, sunfish, perch, bass, and northern. There is a boat launch close by. Motors are permitted on Smith Lake which allows for great boating, skiing, and inner tubing. There is a fire pit located on the property as well as a small weber grill for your use. Firewood is also on the property for your use. Sunsets can be seen from the dock. Smith Lake is home to loons, eagles, and many other forms of wild life. We are located just 3 miles from Hayward where there is great shopping, dining, and night time entertainment. This is the perfect place for a quiet getaway up north.

About Lisa Wanless

My husband and I have always dreamed of owning a cabin in northern Wisconsin. We started the journey to our dream in 2012. After viewing several properties over several months, we picked the property on Smith Lake and fell in love! We located a log home builder close to our home and began the building process. We love our cabin on Smith Lake. We have fallen in love with the Loons on the property thus the name Lazy Loon Cabin.

Lisa Wanless purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Lisa Wanless chose Northwest

Smith Lake offered everything we wanted in a lake. It's quiet but large enough to boat and participate in all kinds of water sports. It has a family feel and great neighbors.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Once again, we had a fabulous stay at the Lazy Loon. Although the weather was a bit cool and rainy, we still managed a remarkable vacation filled with fishing, campfires, and relaxing with a view of the lake. The cabin is beautiful and our family enjoyed every minute of our time there. The perfect northwoods experience.

Beautiful cabin on a quiet lake

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a great time at the cabin. We loved that it was so close to Hayward. Though close to other properties, we found it to be quiet during our stay. We had fun fishing off the dock and using the canoe to explore the lake and fish. The front porch with the rocking chairs and hammock is a great place to relax! We do wish there had been a microwave as we ate in and are tea drinkers, but we understand this is not a necessity. We do plan on coming back in the future! We made some terrific memories!

Perfect girl getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week at the lake! Our accommodations were A-one.

We were two gals looking for a week away. This was the perfect place. The porch and rocking chairs saw a lot of action....reading, visiting, lunches, and evening wine. The paddle boat was a lot of fun for playing in the lake.

Would highly recommend the Lazy Loon for gals to enjoy a get away!

This beautiful cabin and quiet lake create the perfect vacation destination!

  • 5 of 5

The location, cabin, and lake surpassed all of our expectations. The cabin is newer, very clean and had plenty of space for our family of four. We really felt at home here. Hayward is only a few minutes away, but you would never know that from the cabin or the lake. The public boat landing is close and clean. It made landing and loading easy. We docked the boat at the cabin peer all week. We will definitely return to this cabin!

Great location! Clean and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Lazy Loon and the cabin is very new and cozy. It had everything we needed for the week including a small grill, nice fire ring with plenty of wood, and is located on a beautiful lake near other bigger lakes too. The owners had a nice surprise treat waiting for us. It is only a few miles from town so it was easy to run and get more supplies as needed or go out if we wanted. We brought our boat and our son caught many fish. The swimming area and boat landing are located very close too. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!
