Floor to Ceiling Windows On The Main Level Look Over The Beach & Lake- Amazing
About Jon Ballard
I was raised on a lake not to fare from this one in North Central Wisconsin and now I'm living in South Central Wisconsin. I'm an avid outdoors-men as well as a family man with 3 kids that are into everything. My wife and I bought this house to use as a personal get away but as most people with active kids there just isn't to many weekends a year when we can get away so my loss is your gain. We thought we would open it up to let other families enjoy it when we can't.
Jon Ballard purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Jon Ballard chose Hayward
We looked at a lot of cabins and not to many met our requirements- we wanted a place to bring friends and our kids friends and be able to spread out so two separate sitting areas where a must, we wanted a relatively flat lot with out a bunch of stairs to the dock (Very hard to find in the Hayward area), we wanted a bigger lake with crystal clear water and we wanted a cabin that felt like you where "Up North" and this place has it all and then some. I would love to spend every day here if I could. The views are incredible and the lake is great. Come see for yourself why we chose the Majestic Retreat. It truly lives up to it's name.
What makes this Cabin unique
This cabin has it all for family and friend get togethers, two large sitting areas, large dining area, large decks, lots of yard, a nice sandy beach and a private pier for your boat. The views are amazing and floor to ceiling windows let in tons of light. When I walk in the door my troubles melt away. Come see for yourself. The fishing is pretty good too.

After taking a break for 5 years, we got the tradition going again. We wanted a house that was close to Hayward, slept 12, was on the water with a dock, and water sports were allowed. This property had all of this and more. The view from the main floor was beautiful. There was a fire pit by the beach. And it was nice having the ping pong table on those rainy days. Yes, dead leaves and fish washed up on the beach most mornings but that’s nature. We had trouble with the laundry but because we were only there for a week it wasn’t a big deal. The house had good kitchen space with a lot of dishes. The gas grill worked well. There was plenty of deck space. While we shared the yard and beach with other cabins, it was never a problem for us. It was also nice that each of those cabins had a separate dock. The LCO gas station and grocery were very close if you didn’t want the 10 minute drive to Hayward. We would definitely stay at this location again.
Great family getaway
Multi generation family stayed for an annual getaway and really enjoyed the spacious house and would definitely return. The communication was great and check in process was extremely smooth!
What an amazing view to wake up to every morning! Our group had a wonderful time at this cabin. It was spacious and clean. We were able to get in plenty of fishing, relaxing and creating memories. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Perfect Cabin Getaway
This is a wonderful cabin overall. We rented it as part of a group of friends for the Memorial Day weekend and could not have worked out better! The cabin itself is in wonderful condition. The view of the lake are top notch and the cabin has tons of really nice amenities. The lake front is a very nice beach that has had (what I believe) is nice, soft sand hauled in on top of the nice lake sand (double win!). The parking was great and the communication with the owner was really easy. I have had owners and managers that were far less upfront and proactive, this owner/manager was on top of every step and communicated well ahead of me having to ask, which is very much appreciated. You will not be disappointed in this cabin, we will certainly be returning!
We won't be going back.
The cabin was nice but we won’t be going back. We rented a pontoon boat from the owner and he claimed we caused some damage and kept most of our deposit. We didn’t cause the damage but there’s nothing we can do but not go there again. We were very insulted to be accused of something we didn’t do. For several years we rented a cabin near Butternut but were looking for a new place after it was sold. Always had a great time there and never any trouble with the cabin or boat rental. This cabin in Hayward will not be the new place to go…we’ll have to keep looking.
I'm really disappointed that you would choose to rank our cabin poorly on VRBO because of a negative experience you had with a boat rental- I'd also like to point out that you rented the boat from a different company - Not Manage Cabins who manages the Majestic (The cabin you just rated a one star).
We refer our guest to several different places to rent boats and have good relationships with all of them and have had very few problems with any of them. It's my understanding that the particular boat you rented was a brand new 2019 and you where the first group to rent it. The rental company also provided our team pictures of the damage and, frankly, I'm surprised you got any of your deposit back. Let me assure you that we at Manage Cabins, or any of our boat rental partners, are NOT out to make extra money on rentals (Cabin or boat) by making up damage reports. In the rental industry, we make a living off of repeat business and we want all of our guests to enjoy their stay and come back again.
