About Stacy Hughes

Stacy has been managing numerous beautiful lake properties in the Spooner/Hayward area since 2011. She met the owner of this quaint cottage several years ago and has really been enjoying helping her share this beautiful, serene Northwoods Getaway! This property has been in the owner's family for years and although she comes up less often than she would like, she still wants to retain her little peace of "Up North " heaven...She is happy to share her retreat with others and to let them create great family memories as well.

Why Stacy Hughes chose Hayward

It was originally Grampa's cabin and over the years the family grew and they remodeled it, added the garage and Artist's Loft for doing crafts and for family overflow.

What makes this cabin unique

You will fall in love with the privacy, the well appointed Cottage, Artist's Loft and fun water front area with a family fire ring, 2 kayaks and a paddle boat! It is also only a few miles to great restaurants and fun activities.

Beautiful home and loft! The manager is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking to stay in the Hayward area and want to get away from it all, this is the place for you! It’s quiet and the views of the lake are stunning! The fishing is excellent! The home and loft are perfect if you’re staying with a few couples, giving everyone space.

Lastly, we had a small problem with hot water. I texted Stacey, the manager and within a few minutes received a response from her that someone would be over within the hour to fix it, and was. Peace of mind knowing if you book this place and there’s an issue, it will be taken care of immediately. If we’re ever in the area again, this place, without hesitation, will be where we’ll book!

Great Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thunder Point Cottage was the perfect base for our winter getaway. The lake provided great snow shoeing opportunities and the Cottage itself was the perfect space to relax and enjoy the quiet of winter.

Owner's Response: Jodi, we are so pleased you found Thunder Point Cottage to be the perfect winter getaway. Snow shoeing on a lake is such a wonderful way to experience the beauty and quiet of winter and then back to the cottage to warm up and relax.

Great family get away!

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful and comfortable cabin for a family get-away to celebrate Christmas, a birthday, and to watch the Super Bowl game. Access to the lake (a very small one, more the size of a pond) was convenient for snowshoeing and for ice fishing.

Overall a pleasant stay in a comfy, cozy cabin that included loft space for all to enjoy!

Really well cared for place with a great view of the lake! Everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

The bonus artist loft was perfect for separating the noisy kiddos from the napping ones. Great place, responsive host. We will try to come back.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake, Daniel! It was our pleasure to make sure that you had everything you needed. :-) Making use of the artist's loft to separate the sleeping children from the active ones was a great idea. We'd be happy to welcome you back any time!

Had quite some chalanges

  • 3 of 5

Water off at the artist loft was a huge chalange in such a cold weather with a kids. Fire allarms are way too sensitive. Make sure you keep your fan on all the time . Alarm went on two times in us while cooking dinner and we ended up with a fire department visit. Not what you want ti experience while on vacation. The owner checked in couple times with me. Not that I mind it, but not at 6 and 7 AM...

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that you had those experiences while you were staying there... unfortunately, we do have to have the water off in the Artist's Loft in the winter time, due to the pipes... we DID give you advance warning about that, and provided jugs of water for you so that you could still use the toilet and sink... some people have told me that they actually like the "glamour camping" up there, as it is still very cozy with heat and electricity. Regarding the smoke alarm, we have moved it away from the kitchen so now it does not go off due to smoky cooking in the kitchen. We like to keep in touch with our renters so that they have the best experience possible, and we honestly don't remember checking in with you at 6:00 and 7:00 am... we usually wait until at least 9:00 a.m. It may have seemed early due to the fire alarm fiasco the evening before... again, we are very sorry about that, but that issue has been taken care of now.
