Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Jeff and Elizabeth live in Decorah, Iowa with their three kids. Jeff works for Luther College, and Elizabeth works for Mayo Clinic health system. Our 3 kids are middle school and high school aged. We all love the adventures Moose Lake offers, as well as the restorative peacefulness it provides for mind, body and soul!

Why the Owner Chose Hayward, WI, USA:
The Hayward area has been our 'Up North' retreat for years. Jeff enjoyed family vacations on Spider Lake when he was young, and Elizabeth ventured there in the winters to ski the Birkie since college years. Extended family has lived in Hayward, and also own a cabin on Moose Lake. We even got married in Hayward!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Dancing Moose Cabin has an inviting feel with wood accents in each room, and a beautiful view out the large kitchen windows. The kitchen (where everyone usually gathers) has plenty of seating at the counter stools and the solid oak 'picnic' style table--great for meals as well as playing board games or puzzles. The 'reading nook' off of the kitchen offers a quiet get-away spot to enjoy a good book, good views, or a much needed nap!
