About Wayne Hoistad

We have three kids and enjoy using the cabin in August right before they go back to school.

Wayne Hoistad purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Wayne Hoistad chose Minnesota

We purchased this cabin in 2013 and completed the renovations to make this a great vacation destination for your family. You will not be disappointed.

What makes this cabin unique

The fact that this cabin is a true log cabin sets it apart from other lake cabins. There are not many of these properties remaining and we hope you will enjoy the experience as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hoistad's cabin. The rustic cabin feel was awesome and the kids loved the loft. We had plenty of room for our family.

The sunrises and shaded afternoons/evenings on the patio were relaxing. The stand up paddle board, kayak, swimming platform and paddle boat were great.

The water quality was very good. We brought our boat for tubing and skiing. The beach on the north end of the lake is huge. There is also a sandbar in the middle of the lake that you can see from the cabin.

We enjoyed using the bike trail and walking path within a few miles of the cabin. I would highly recommend renting this cabin. It was very quiet, relaxing vacation.

Lots of activities in town too.

Great log cabin and beautiful views.

  • 4 of 5

Great log cabin, good beds/bunk beds, clean and comfortable. Took a day to figure out temperature controls and some of the lights (breakers needed to be reset) but good once sorted. Owner added wifi and tv channels as requested. Would stay here again.

Great Memorial Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Very nice Lakefront "Log Cabin" on a moderately quiet Lake. We had a wonderful Memorial day weekend with the family.

The Cabin Layout worked very well for Us (wife and I, 3 grown children and theirs).

Owner very helpful with info to area attractions and supplies.

Our first experience with "Home Away" was seamless.

We had a great time here. It was nice to have the paddle boat, paddle board and kayaks for other ways to get out on the water. The cabin was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed (towels, kitchen stuff, blankets etc). Fishing was good, too! We hope to come back!

rustic yet comfy, with all the necessary conveniences

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at this Cedar Lake cabin. The cabin was beautiful, both inside and out, and all the household goods we needed were provided. My daughters loved the loft! We had a wonderful time using the kayaks and the paddleboard- such a nice peaceful time cruising around the lake. I would certainly recommend this property- and will hopefully be back next year!

Cabin Rental

  • 5 of 5

First of all the property manager that I dealt with was prompt on his responses on all my inquiries,he was friendly and made sure I was able to contact him at any time during our stay with any concerns.This cabin was very reasonably priced which helped also to make my decision to rent it. The cabin inside and out was clean and well stocked for my families needs. Our family loved the water accessories the property manager let us use.Because the cabin was close to towns it made it so easy to buy food and bait when we needed it.Our children loved that it was close to home because they could come and go after work or other activities.And of course our grandson absolutely loved to be able to catch fish off the dock.And not just small fish!

Wonderful log cabin, awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends had a wonderful week at this cabin. Lots of peace and quiet, yet close enough to the beach, town to enjoy those too. Our teenagers especially enjoyed the paddle board, kayak, swim raft, etc. The owners go above and beyond - all the conveniences of home were provided! The cabin was well maintained, very clean and the décor made you feel like you were truly "at the lake". Morning walks, lunches on the patio, evening fires and spending time in and on the water in between made for a truly nice vacation.
