Rustic Clam is a comfortable 3 bedroom, 1 bath, log vacation cabin located on the wooded shores of Lower Clam Lake. Enjoy the magnificent Northwoods setting in the heart of the Chequamegon National Forest – the West Fork of the Chippewa River flows out of Lower Clam Lake at this location over a logging era rock dam. The cozy deck and large yard with fire pit, grill, twinkle lights, patio furniture and picnic table overlook the lake. There is a private dock and row boat included with the cabin rental. The property also includes a swing set for children to play.
The property at Rustic Clam is very quiet and has a footbridge that leads to another property. This footbridge is over the mouth of the Chippewa River and offers a tranquil sound of water flowing which you can hear from the cabin and if you have the window opened in the back bedroom, you will fall asleep to this peaceful sound.

We are a pet friendly cabin for well behaved dogs. Please be responsible and pick up after your pet as well as keep on a leash when outdoors. The forest is a big place and we’d hate to see your fur baby get lost. We also want to be respectful to neighboring cabins and homes. We would also like to note that the pet fee we charge for your "kids" will be donated to the Northwood's Humane Society in your name and you will be provided documentation for your tax purposes. This shelter is located right outside Hayward and en route to the cabin. They have an amazing fenced in dog park to bring your dog to as well as adopt animals.
