Beautiful cabin and location!
We really enjoyed our stay. The cabin is the nicest we've ever stayed at and the views are spectacular!!
Great stay on the lake
Our family had a great week of swimming, canoeing, fishing and just enjoying cabin life during our stay. Location is great. Lake was clear and calm. The kids loved swimming off the dock and exploring the lake. It was nice to feel like we were away from it all but still close enough to hayward to pick up any needs or take the kids on an outing . The cabin was cozy and clean with beautiful views of the lake and the hosts John & Christine were there to greet us and made us feel more than welcome to make ourselves at home. Great stay!
Nice lake with great views - enjoyed the peace and quiet of the lake/neighborhood also. Pictures are accurate as to cabin appearance. Thanks for use of the paddleboards.
Place was nice.
Enjoyed our stay. Caught some fish. Nice short drive to Hayward.
Ben.... Was great to have your family up to our cabin during Memorial Weekend. Surprising to see you catch the elusive Walleye! While the temps during the weekend didn't seem to cooperate as much as we hoped....I think your family must have found the lake and our cabin as advertised! Hoping we see your group again next year.... John & Chris Knapek
Great Family Vacation
Our family stayed at this north woods cabin for a week. It was not only the perfect location (10 minutes from Hayward) but it was the perfect family cabin. It had more space than we would ever need for our family of 5 and the dog! The many rooms were all full of comfy and quality furniture which made it very easy to rest and relax. The best part of it all was how close the cabin is to the lake. One of the family rooms walls were all windows so the lake was always in view! The sunsets and sunrises were unbelievable thanks to the incredible view from the house as well as the fact that the cabin was so close to the lake. The water was clear and clean around the shore. Boating and tubing was a ton of fun. The cabin has a nice dock that allows you to jump off the end as the water is roughly 6ft deep from the edge. Overall, our family loved this cabin, the location couldn’t be better, views were jaw dropping and the quiet lake made it a fun family experience!
Thanks for your great guest review! We always enjoy knowing that our guest find -- what my wife and I, and many, many other guests find our cabin to be advertised as!
Private, great location, and stunning!! --- especially the views!
We love our location and love that almost all guests see what we see when we first laid eyes upon it!
Thanks Randy Satterfield for enjoying it during your week! We hope to see you and your family back again and again....
The lake is beautiful and the home is nice. Please know the property you are renting is not private, as the owners created living space for themselves above the garage, and vacation/stay on the premises, at their discretion, during your rental period. The 200' of lakeshore advertised in listing is also inaccurate. Rental property lakeshore is shared with owners. The owners built a separate pier and keep their boat on rented property. It feels like a classic 'have your cake and eat it too' scenario.
We have enjoyed vacations homes via VRBO and have never had such a disappointment. The owners, and I'm now quoting VRBO customer service, "did not care about our rental experience". We intended to accommodate this non-private rental, simply because the lake is beautiful, however after purchasing groceries the evening of our arrival, only to wake the next morning to a non-functioning refrigerator and a trash bag full of spoiled food, we sadly felt we had no choice but to leave. Despite the owners being right next door, they proudly proclaimed their response was within "12 hours"... Obviously communication failed, and the owner response "we're sorry you feel that way", did very little to make us feel welcome.
In addition (it would be irresponsible not to mention) the owners did not have the respect nor the courtesy to inform us the lot adjacent to the house was sold and construction underway, prior to our arrival. I understand this is beyond their control, but it certainly impacts the rental/vacation experience. During our initial tour of the property, and noticing the homesite right outside the kitchen window, it was casually mentioned by owner, "construction crews start 7am Monday morning."
I have never submitted a negative review, but sincerely want to save another family from a horrible experience. Perhaps the owners will change their attitude toward those renting their property, or perhaps a family compound living arrangement appeals to you, regardless, please go into this vacation rental with eyes wide open.
Note the one star given is for Windigo Lake. It deserves 5. The overall experience with rental, 0 stars.
These guests were upset that we were offering a discount for the week following their stay. We couldn’t use it ourselves given our daughter’s scheduled kidney transplant surgery. They asserted that we were advertising that week for “half-off” and wanted appeasement. We stated that it was being offered for $400 off, not 50%. We’d already given them a $300 discount for their 3 dogs and we offered another $100 to make the total discount $400 to match the following week. That wasn’t good enough for them.
Upon arrival, the wife became upset that the neighbors had kids. She stated that she already raised her kids and didn’t want to deal with them on her vacation. John went to the neighbors, asking them to make sure the kids stayed off our property. At that time, they informed John that construction was taking place a couple of days that week. John asked for a delay, but it couldn’t be rescheduled. We hadn’t been there for 3 weeks and weren’t aware that construction was occurring that week. John informed the guests as soon as he found out. We couldn’t have informed the guests any sooner. Our neighbor’s project is mostly complete and will be a moot point for future guests.
Although our refrigerator works fine, we responded within 90 minutes of being notified of a possible temperature issue, asking if we could enter the cabin that morning to repair/replace it if necessary. We also have a smaller fridge downstairs that they could’ve used. We respond to questions immediately and resolve concerns within 12 hours of being informed. Our past guests have raved about how welcoming we’ve been, and we didn't do anything differently with these guests. We never stated to VRBO that we didn’t care about our guest’s rental experience. We defended ourselves against threats by these guests.
These guests knew we lived in MN, not on property, and John was leaving to prepare for his daughter’s surgery. They knew Chris was staying at her parent’s cabin 20 minutes away until the surgery if they needed anything. We try to remain nearby during the first 24 hours of a rental week in case anything arises. Our past guests have appreciated our efforts to make sure they have a wonderful and memorable stay. While we have a dock at the other end of the property, there is still 200’ of lakeshore to use. We’d put our lake up against any other full-recreational lake in Hayward, WI regarding beauty and privacy. We are happy to share testimonials and video that prove how peaceful our property is.
