Grandpa Bygd’s 3-bedroom log cabin is nestled on the shores of lovely Nelson Lake near Hayward, WI. Splash and swim in the pristine 2,500-acre lake with its shallow bottom perfect for children. You can also bring your furry friends who will enjoy the fenced lakeside yard and delight in being part of your family vacation. This newer Northwoods’ lakefront cottage home comes with a canoe, 14-foot aluminum fishing boat with oars, and pier/dock so you can get out on the lake with ease to fish and paddle. If you bring your own boat, you can launch it at one of the nearby four public boat landings.

The living room with its attractive wood planking and cathedral ceiling is comfortably furnished and includes a TV and gas stove. Expansive windows in the open concept kitchen/dining/living area let in the great views of the lake and abundant light. Patio doors enter out onto a large deck with comfortable outdoor furniture. A three-season porch creates a favorite place to lounge, read, and listen to the sounds of nature surrounding you. Or perhaps you just want to sit in the swing at the water’s edge and listen to the birds singing in the morning with your coffee.

The fully equipped kitchen comes with a refrigerator, stove/oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, silverware, dishware, cooking utensils and cookware. The dining room table seats 6 with additional seating for 2 at the breakfast bar.
