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.

Sleeping arrangements: Bedroom 1 (main floor) - queen bed; Bedroom 2 (main floor) - queen bed; Bedroom 3 (upper level) - 2 twin beds; sofa sleeper in living room.

Unique Features

Our Hayward vacation rental includes a canoe, 14’ aluminum fishing boat with oars, and a pier/dock. You can paddle the canoe or fishing boat to several local restaurants on the lake near the cabin for breakfast or lunch. Spend lots of time lakeside on your private pier/dock.

Pets are welcome and your dog will love the fenced in lakeside yard. A fire pit, swing set and picnic table on the lakefront makes gathering for entertainment and family traditions on “Cabin Time.”

Things To Do

The Sawyer County vacation home is near over 140 miles of ATV trails in the Chequamegon National Forest. Bring your ATVs because there are three separate trail systems that create adjoining loops through the forest scenery offering panoramic views. Grandpa Bygd’s Cabin is only 10 minutes from downtown Hayward with boutique shops, novelty gift stores, and local restaurants to sample after a day on the trails.

Great fishing is at your back door with Walleye, panfish, bas and Northern Pike. Either from the pier or out in the aluminum boat that comes with the cabin rental, cast that line for your own catch of the day special. Then grill on them up for dinner on the gas grill. The more adventurous may want to take a longer boat tour into the Totagatic River State Wildlife area.
