Welcome to the Black Dog Beach Club! This is one of the nicest and newest family cabins on Grindstone Lake. We built it in 2005 and have made major updates every year since then. Each room has a theme! Two bedrooms are on the first floor (known as the Bear Den and the Mooster Suite), as well as a bathroom (the Fishing Hole), a spacious kitchen. Dining area and living room. This rustic chalet with pine walls and maple floors also has a loft that sleeps an additional 4 people. A third bedroom (the Looney Bin) is in the cozy finished basement, along with a second bathroom (the Dock Diving Academy) and large family room (the Birkie Lounge). The Mooster Suite has a king bed, the Bear Den has a queen size and the Looney Bin has a full sized. The home also features two fireplaces on main and lower level. Conduct business in paradise with wifi, private desk and laser printer. Enjoy the game or watch movies on a rainy day on the two flat screen tvs with charter hd cable, surround sound, blu ray players and Xbox 360 in the loft. The kitchen will support your largest family meals. It has granite counter tops, large full sized stainless appliances, an eat in kitchen island and dining room space for 8-10 people. Venturing outside, there is a spacious outdoor deck, outdoor grill, firepit and gazebo if bugs are bad. A few short steps down to the lake leads you to a large 60 foot dock and sand bar frontage on beautiful crystal clear Grindstone Lake. A perfect spot to swim with the kids, set up a volleyball net, or teach Fido how to dock dive. The Black Dog Beach Club has the perfect location for all your summer activities.

One thing to note. Like many glacial lakes throughout Wisconsin, Grindstone has sections of high lakeshore elevation. This does make for spectacular views, but it also means guests must traverse steps to get down to the lake level. The BDBC has 66 well built and safe stairs to get you to the lake that will give you a great workout, no matter what your age.

The BDBC, like many other properties in the Hayward area, is for sale. On occasion, we may ask our guests to accommodate a realtor showing. We will always give you at least 12 hours notice and you do not need to vacate the property. We truly appreciate our guests flexibility in this regard.

About Steve and Julie Pyle

The inspiration for the Black Dog Beach Club comes from our two black labs, Pablo and Monty and our grand dog Stella. We live in the Twin Cities but used the cabin as a second home for the past 10 years. Many dogs have stayed with us and when we decided to rent the cabin, we wanted to have a place where families could vacation with their dogs. So many memories have been made at this beautiful place with our two boys and our dogs and we wanted other families to be able also make similar memories with their kids and their fur kids. We do not charge a pet fee; only a small supplemental security deposit that is refundable.

Steve and Julie Pyle purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Steve and Julie Pyle chose Northern Wisconsin

Hayward is an international destination. We love the thrill when the church bells start to ring, the deafening roar of the clanging of cow bells, and the loud cheers as the leaders of the American Birkebeiner approach Main Street for the final sprint. Our family has participated regularly in the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival which takes place in September. We have countless festivals and the cleanest, clearest lakes in all of Wisconsin or Minnesota. Like to fish? Chase after the next "world record" musky on Grindstone Lake. (Louis Spray caught the World Record at the time on Grindstone in 1939). World class mountain biking on the CAMBA trails are a fun challenge for even professional bike riders. With cross country skiing and fat biking in the winter, plus miles of groomed snowmobile trails Hayward is also a great winter destination. It does not matter whether you are a sportsman, an art lover, a foodie, a music lover or just love the sound of loons and eagles calling in the evenings, Hayward has it all!

What makes this chalet unique

The gazebo is one of our favorite spots to enjoy the outdoors. It is large and comfortable and provides for great views of the lake, as well as protection from the bugs. We enjoy outdoor dining and grilling on our deck.The neighbors are extremely friendly and welcoming. Perhaps the biggest benefit is that Grindstone Lake, as large as it is, is seldom overly busy. Pontoons like to tie up to each other on the sandbar. Even on the 4th of July, there will not be the congested boat traffic of a Twin Cities lake. You also can boat or drive to Waterfront restaurant. They are known to have the best Friday fish fry and Saturday night Prime Rib in the Hayward area! If you like unique adventures, take a jet ski or kayak through the channel between Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles. It does get shallow in places so be sure to walk through your jet ski in the more shallow spots. This adventure will give you access to two resorts that have great food and drinks on the lake: Trails End Resort and Anglers Haven Resort are hot spots on Lac Courte Oreilles. Trails End has awesome burgers and Anglers makes the most interesting and tasty pizzas in the area. Do you prefer a supper club experience? Try Fireside, The Ranch, The Steakhouse, the Chippewa Inn and Italia. All are excellent and reasonably priced.

Family and dog friendly - absolutely!

  • 5 of 5

Four generations of my family–5 years to 94 years–enjoyed a long weekend at the Black Dog Beach Club on Grindstone Lake. The accommodations worked for all of us; the weather was lovely from morning mists to evening sunsets. Communication with the host was easy and timely.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing a response on VRBO. We love to share our little slice of heaven with families, and fur friends too! I am so glad you found everything to your liking. The Fall season is a lovely time to enjoy Hayward, if you would like to come back to stay with us? The colors can be amazing at the lake!

Great space for family and dogs

  • 4 of 5

With the three levels, two bathrooms, four bedrooms , and big yard there was plentiful of room for everyone. The kitchen was well equipped too. The steps down to the dock was a steep climb up but a good workout for the "seniors" in the group. If your looking for great pizza checkout Angler's Haven. We had fabulous weather and the family agreed we would enjoy visiting again
