Description of the Hayward vacation cottage rental
Spend your summer in a restored 1940s vintage homesteader's cottage on 191-acre Bony Lake, part of the Eau Claire Chain of Lakes, 25 miles north of Hayward, WI. This rustic vertical log cabin is surrounded by 12 acres of woods and wildlife, nestled beneath tall pines, serenaded by the calls of the loons, and just a short walk to the water's edge. Birch Bay Cottage has a full kitchen, separate dining area, 3 bedrooms, a newly-renovated bathroom with walk-in shower, original wood floors, and comes fully furnished ready for you to "settle in for the summer". The garage area would be great for an artist's studio, woodworker's shop or workspace for those who like to "tinker with projects".

We booked this beautiful cabin last minute. We didn't expect much on short notice. This was the most peaceful, scenic, comfortable cabin I've stayed in. Great location with privacy and a private dock in a crystal clear lake. Owner was very nice and near by . I will try to book this cabin again.

Owner's reply:

Thanks for sharing your thoughts! It was a pleasure to share our lovely lake with you and your family and a special joy to watch your two boys catching fish off the dock. Do come again!
