About Gregory Ralston
I live in Oregon full time but grew up in Rochester, Minnesota. My Mom and Dad built the cabin in 1985 and I inherited it in 2012. I've been there every year for at least 2 weeks with my family since 1985. I'm now a semi-retired emergency physician only occasionally working in Phoenix, Arizona at the Indian Health Service Hospital. But I spend about 4 weeks at the cabin each July doing repairs and maintenance, fishing, golfing, having reunions and relaxing and often come back for a couple weeks in May and again in September to fish with friends. In Oregon I grow a large garden with strawberries, fruit trees, flowers and vegetables and I love to fly fish here too.
Gregory Ralston purchased this Cabin in 1985
Why Gregory Ralston chose Hayward
I inherited the cabin from my parents in 2012. Dad was a physician at the Mayo Clinic but a fairly skilled carpenter too. He built the kitchen cabinets and lots of other things in the cabin. I've always loved the setting and the lake and hope to keep the cabin in the family, passing it down to my kids.

We had a great stay in the cabin. The lake was fantastic and our family enjoyed swimming, fishing, paddle boarding and Jet skiing. We would highly recommend this cabin.
Had a very nice time. Very homey feel and very clean. Would defiantly come again.
Great cabin on Round Lake with Beautiful views!
Me and my buddy took our dads on a Father’s Day fishing trip and we picked the right spot. Great clean cabin in an excellent spot on Round Lake. We stayed 3 days and did really good each day with walleye and bass! We will definitely be back and I highly recommend this place!
Clean with a great view
Fun place to stay. Round Lake is beautiful and serene especially early Fall.
beautiful property and Cabin is in excellent condition
4 guy golf trip. Cabin was very comfortable for the 4 of us and it is in pristine condition. The grounds were equally impressive. The swimming area is perfect for everyone with a very hard sandy bottom. It was a bonus to have satellite TV and Wifi that actually works. I can find nothing negative to say about the Ralston cabin. All 4 of us would rent here again.
Thanks for your nice comments. I'm glad you enjoyed the cabin and lake and am gratified to hear that guests have had a good time though I do appreciate constructive commentary because I'd like to continue to improve guest's experiences in the future.
Perfect place on a beautiful lake
Can’t say enough good things about the Lake Cabin on Round Lake. For,starters, the cabin is in a perfect spot on a crystal clear lake. The house itself is very comfortable, and perfect for our group of 4. Greg, the owner of the caibin, was,super helpful in sharing info on the Lake and surrounding area, too. I’d go back in a heartbeat... and probably wil.
Round Lake is so clear that it's a tough lake to fish and it's taken me many trips to the lake to become familiar enough to do well on it. It's not worth fishing during the day unless you want to go into Little Round Lake and fish the weedy areas for panfish. The Chippewa Flowage is a large lake about 5 miles from the cabin which is fun to fish. There are resorts there with boats for rent and fishing guides to all the lakes and rivers in the area are readily available. There are a number of rivers that are great for flyfishing, including the Namakagon, with smallmouth bass, northern and muskies in the lower river below Hayward and abundant brown trout in the river above Hayward. The Chippewa Foliage (a very large man-made lake) is about 5 miles and the Brule which Eisenhower had a cabin on is about an hour. Canoe and inner tube trips are available on the Brule and Namakagon Rivers. Hayward is about 7 miles away with restaurants, movies and gift shops. The World Lumberjack Festival is held in Hayward every year in late July. There are numerous golf courses around the area; my favorites are Hayward CC which is about $55 for golf and cart and Spooner which is about a 30 mile drive. Both are fun old-style courses and always in immaculate condition. The Indian casino is about 2 miles from the cabin for gambling enthusiasts and there's a new Italian restaurant about 9 miles away, south on county road K called Ristorante Italiano. I've eaten there twice and it was very good with reasonable prices. I've heard the Chippewa Inn is terrific though it looks a bit more spendy. Our family favorite is The Ranch in Hayward. They serve steaks, ribs, chicken, pork and seafood and have a Friday night fish fry as do most of the restaurants in the area. It's moderately priced. The Marketplace grocery store in Hayward has a good selection of wines and for meats and fish I'd recommend Lynn's in Hayward.
