Wonderful getaway in the Northwoods.

  • 5 of 5

A great cabin on a beautiful lake. Very close to Hayward and Right outside Stone Lake. We enjoyed cruising in the pontoon, fishing and relaxing in the yard. Has a fire pit and lawn for lots of activities. The owners were a pleasure to deal with for the rental.

Great lake getaway for families

  • 5 of 5

This house on Whitefish Lake is a great, clean and comfortable north woods getaway. The photos on the web site are accurate but in my opinion really do not do justice to the home's charm, the beautiful setting in the woods or the serene lake view from the living room/back deck--we were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived and saw the lovely property in person! The home's owners were very helpful and were terrific to work with at all stages. The owners also provided a variety of outdoor games, arts and crafts and other activities to entertain our small children and make us feel at home. Highly recommended!

Spacious and clean, great for multiple family trip

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us, including 2 young children, stayed here over a winter weekend. The place is laid out very nicely to accommodate a large group, with beds and a small living area downstairs, in addition to the main floor which has the large kitchen, dining room, and living room arranged in an open concept. Great mudroom to stash winter gear. Leah, the owner, couldn't be easier to work with.

Easy to get to from Minneapolis, Whitefish lake was great. We easily found a pontoon rental and communicating with our property owner Leah was a breeze - very helpful. Overall would highly recommend the renters and the property.

Great cabin, lots of space and a very nice lake

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very well equipped and had lots of room and comfortable beds and living space. We found the cabin very clean when we arrived. The trees provided nice screening from the neighbors. We were not familiar with Whitefish Lake before our trip but it was very nice. There is a large sandbar on the opposite end of the lake. The sandbar is a great place to anchor the boat and play in the water.

Ms. Armstrong was very quick to respond to any questions I had prior to our trip. I would certainly recommend this cabin to others.

Great Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lake home for a week at the end of July, 2016. We had 6 adults and 3 young children. The home is exactly as it is described on the site and the photos describe the property very accurately. We were very comfortable, the home layout is good, nice master with bath, a second bedroom on the main level, and a finished lower level accommodates the 3rd bedroom. The kitchen is well equipped and we were able to use the outdoor grill and the fire pit is also equipped for grilling! The lake is beautiful, clean, and NOT busy! Very few stairs down to the water. The outdoor seating on the deck can accommodate 6 for dining outdoors. The dining room can also seat 6 with stools at the counter. Leah is a great communicator, answers questions via email within an hour! She made the booking, check in, check out easy. The area is close to Hayward-about 12 miles-easy drive. We loved using the kayaks and stand up paddle board. We rented a pontoon from a local that worked out well too. I would highly recommend this property! Thanks again Leah and Chris for sharing your home with us!
