Year round cabin with 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bath and Bunk House with 125' of Lakeshore
About Jon Vollmers
Growing up in a small vacation town in northern Minnesota I have always enjoyed the northwoods lifestyle. After moving to the twin cities I realized that I needed a getaway which led me to the Hayward area. This property is one of my favorite places in the world and one that brings great happiness. I hope your family will like this property as much as we do, and that it brings you and your family great memories.
Jon Vollmers purchased this House in 2014

Host did a great job communicating. We had a great week at the cabin!
I appreciate you guys coming back again this year as well as taking good care of the cabin. As always let me know if I can help in the future.
Great 2-Week Vacation!
My husband and I come "up north" from our Florida home every year for the month of September and rent a lake house for two weeks in the Hayward area before going to MN to visit relatives. The cabin was in pristine condition and very comfortable. Had all the creature comforts you would need. It was close to Hayward and all of its great restaurants. The owner always answered our questions in a timely manner and was easy to work with. In spite of the 99 steps to the dock, we would highly recommend this cabin.
Quiet, Clean and Comfortable
We enjoyed our stay on Nelson lake. The lake is very pretty and has a great north woods feel. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. It was close to town so it wasn't a big issue to run in to town if we needed things. Great view from the property and all of the amenities of home. We look forward to coming back next year.;
Great view, well taken care of cottage
Stayed there for our honeymoon. Nice lake that we would like to get to know a bit better for fishing. Cottage was very roomy and the stairs down to the pier and back up certainly kept our leg muscles in shape. Short drive to town and plenty of places to visit or dine.
May be looking at an early summer trip next time.
Thanks to Jon et al for being so accomodating!
Very clean, cozy and comfortable.
Positives: Cabin was clean, easy to find and away from traffic. Cozy and quiet. Pretty view of the lake and nature. Boat access was efficient and leaving the boat at the pier was time saving and easy. Access to ATV trails was great too. Newly remodeled area was very nice and new bathroom was charming with it's pine siding. Kitchen was adequate with all the things necessary for a stay. Internet was fast and available at all times. Owner was available and very attentive to any needs.
Negatives: Cabin is small. Although there is enough room for 6 to 8 guests, it was very cramped. Beds were not comfortable nor was the furniture. Digital tv only provided a few paid stations, no access to the hundreds of other stations. The 88 steps down to the lake and back up to the cabin was not mentioned in the description, so we all got a work out (but this could be a positive for some).
Heidi, I appreciate your feed back on things in which it shows that I need to add some more detail in my descriptions. I will update my listing to reflect some of your concerns as well as the positives you highlighted.
With regards to the negatives that you have concerns about. I do believe there are some things I need to attend to and will update for future renters. I also do believe there are some issues in your statements that are a little out of line with regards to the facts that were presented in the listing prior to your booking.
For your comment on the cabin being small and cramped. Per the description in VRBO it is a 1200 sq ft cabin with sleeping for 6. This has been clear on VRBO since the first day I posted this property. Yes if you have 8 adults in this cabin it will feel small as it is 1200 sq ft. I also would like to be clear that you rented the cabin and informed me of 6 Adults only. I do make exceptions at times with regards to additional people but honestly do not prefer over 6 adults at a time due to the size.
As for the beds and furniture not being comfortable, this is a subjective comment so I can only state what I know. All of the beds are newer on the property. I personally have not had issues with the beds or furniture not being comfortable. This is honestly the first complaint that I have had on the beds or furniture. I will definitely check this out for the future and make adjustments as needed.
In reference to the cable. Per the description I do have cable and internet at the property. I really don't know how many channels there are but the package is spectrum/charter basic cable with internet. I do apologize that you were disappointed in the cable but also would like to be clear that I never eluded in any way that you would have full access to every channel spectrum has to offer. If this is a concern for future renters please check out spectrums website to review their cable plans.
Finally for the stairs, I apologize if you felt this was not fully disclosed. There are a lot of area's on Nelson lake with elevation including my property. I will make sure to inform future renters in greater detail of the elevation and stairs.
In closing I try to be as transparent and honest as possible. If anyone has any questions in the future please reach out to me.
