About Don and Barb
Built by the owner 13 years ago.
Don and Barb purchased this Lodge in 2003
Why Don and Barb chose Hayward
We knew the former owners of the property and they knew we loved it. When they were ready to move they offered it to us. It has always been the perfect place for fishing and hiking! We decided to build our dream log cabin in the secluded woods.

Our stay June 2019
The house is huge and gorgeous. We were able to witness a turtle lay eggs twice. The internet and television worked great. When we arrived I noticed the rugs were quite dirty. I vacuumed all the rugs on the main and upper floor and nearly filled the vacuum canister. The couch was covered in dog hair and I vacuumed it as well. I also found a cherry stem and sticky rings on the table next to the couch. Two bathrooms didn't have soap and one didn't have a trash can. The refrigerator does not have an ice maker so plan on buying ice. There also appears to be no a/c in the upper bedroom. The ATV trails do not run through the property as promised. The laundry room had stacks of dirty laundry as well as wash in the washing machine. There were large ants around the plugs above the vanity in the main floor bathroom. The whole house could stand a thorough cleaning. The kids loved the toys, the adults loved the puzzles. Overall it was not as nice as expected and, unfortunately, we won't be back.
Spacious, beautiful cabin!
We enjoyed a fabulous weekend in this cabin. The main floor is so spacious, allowing many of us to cook in the kitchen at the same time and a couch big enough for our whole family to relax in the living room. It was fantastic to have a bathroom on each level and there were a surprising number of children's toys and books that the kids really enjoyed.
The cabin is pretty close to fantastic mountain biking and beautiful hikes. We enjoyed a visit to nearby Farmstead Creamery and Cafe for their Saturday night wood fired pizza and live music.
The only drawback for us was that we had to drive to find a place to swim and play in the water. The creek was much to shallow to paddle the canoe in and not a great place to play or swim. We found ourselves driving to Day Lake to enjoy the sandy beach there daily - about 15 minutes away.
Thanks for a great vacation!
Great place for large group
We had a great time here. The wrap around porch is a great feature - just remember to bring mosquito spray! The grill was in great working order. There are a lot of toys and books available - a lot of seating area indoors. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. There is a spice drawer with some common spices. Overall a great place.
We booked this trip as a guys weekend and summer ATV trip. The house was really nice, there was plenty of space for everyone, enough bathrooms that no one had to wait for a shower. The kitchen was awesome, we were able to make all of our meals and saved a lot of money that way. The driveway was large enough that we could park 4 trucks 2 of which had 20+ foot trailers on them The only part that was not so great for ATVing is that there is not direct legal access to a trail system but there are plenty of parking lots within 10 minutes to leave from. If you were staying here for a snowmobile trip there is direct trail access.
More amazing than the pictures, so much room and space for all activities. Everything was amazing for us and our adult children and their significant others. Wish we had more time to spend there to enjoy the fishing opportunities, guess that means we will go back again!!! We did enjoy hundreds of miles of perfect roads motorcycling and saw a few elk and deer near the property. So peaceful and tranquil day and night. Definitely a "must stay cabin" near Hayward and Clam Lake.
Fantastic Place. Beautiful. Perfect location for ATV riding. Lots of space, lots of extras.
First impression and last impression - Fantastic. Other than the one bedroom, which stated dual queen bunkbeds as shown in the listing photo, didn't actually have queen bunkbed (strange). We made it work and would love to rent this place a few more times. Over the top great.
Sorry about the queen bunk! Just before you came we decided...enough...that top bed took way too much time to make. I have a new pic and I'll change it in the listing. We will probably add a twin size in that room in the near future.
