Hayward Vacation Rentals

Testimonials

Quotes This home on Big Bass Lake was the perfect setting for our family's celebration of Mom and Dad's 50th anniversary. The private dock and swimming area were perfect for both kids and adults alike. The bottom was sandy and free of weeds, while the water was crystal clear! It also provided a great fishing opportunity, especially for my son, who caught his first Northern Pike, along with many panfish, right off the dock. The dock also accommodated our boat nicely for more fishing and cruising on the lake. (Nearby Minong Flowage also provided fishing.) At night the firepit was a favorite for all ages against a backdrop of amazing sunsets! Our daily excursions included visiting Hayward for shopping/museums and the amazing Copper Falls State Park in nearby Mellon- with breathtaking scenery and hiking. (IMO- a must see!) The cabin was cozy and very well stocked with all of the amenities our group (6 adults, 5 kids) could ask for. Thanks again to Jason and Kathy! Quotes
Beautiful Vacation Opportunity for our Family
July 2016

Quotes What a find! We booked the chalet for a week in July looking for some quiet family time in a secluded "up north" environment, and we got just what we asked for. The Minong area is very small-town, but it has everything you need. There's a grocery store, gas stations, an A&W, a saloon/restaurant (with great BBQ), and a well-stocked sportsman shop. Hayward and Spooner are both within 30 minutes if you're looking for tourist attractions, but if what you seek is quiet, the house is extremely secluded, and Big Bass Lake is everything Kathy promises. Each member of my family found something to love about the home and the area. My dad rolled out the full-sized gas grill for a steak dinner and found a nearby golf course to lose some balls on. My mom enjoyed the well-stocked kitchen for meal preparation and drinking in the sunsets off the 2nd-floor wrap-around porch. Quotes
Lovely Lakeside Retreat

Quotes Continued...My husband caught all kinds of fish and delighted in abundant sightings of area wildlife. My kids had a great time playing pool, ping pong, and foosball when they weren't jumping off of the swimming raft or exploring the lake on the paddle boat. I enjoyed watching my entire family spend time together without screens or screaming. I'm sure we'll be talking about our week on the lake for years to come. Quotes
Lovely Lakeside Retreat

Quotes We had 4 couples in our group to take our annual ice fishing trip and this year we decided to stay closer to home so we booked with Kathy and only needed to travel about 2 1/2 hours to her VRBO. What a great find. The place was perfect and working with Kathy was wonderful. The home was exactly as advertised. Very roomy, very clean, and had everything we needed. It is nice and secluded and is just a short drive into Minong which was very convenient. It was very cold during our stay and that made the fireplace and home even more important for our stay. We didn't even want or need to leave the home if we chose. Although the fish did not always cooperate, it was a great trip and Jason and Kathy's VRBO made it perfect. Quotes

Quotes This is not just a summer vacation destination. Our stay was the first part of January and the accommodations were perfect! The spacious home was well equipped and the fire place was beautiful. The men went ice fishing as the girls relaxed around the fireplace. The location is great. Not to far from anything you may need. I highly recommend big bass lake! Quotes

October 2015

Quotes We recently got back from our four generation family vacation and want to go back again! We had a wonderful time at Big Bass Lake! The chalet is beautiful! The bedrooms were well appointed and comfortable. The bathrooms were also nice sized with everything you need! There is a crib with linens, a bumper pad, even a monitor so we could listen for the baby. The kitchen has a wonderful assortment of pots, pans, casserole dishes, baking pans, coffee makers, crock pots, dishes and silverware. There is a really nice dishwasher in the kitchen and a washer and dryer in the basement. Also in the basement is a fooze ball table, a pool table and a ping pong table!! We had a great time playing games when we weren't fishing! The water is really clear and there are tons of fish. We usually catch and release and the fish kept us very busy! We caught a lot of sunfish and bluegills, a couple of perch, some large mouth bass and northern! Quotes
What a great place!
September 2015

Quotes continued...After dinner we would all head down to the pontoon and take a cruise around the lake. We also enjoyed some time site seeing. We went to the Woodcarver's Museum, the Great Northern Train ride, and the Potters Shed in Shell Lake. We painted our own pottery at the Potters Shed, but they also have a store, a snack bar, an outdoor area, and when we were leaving they had a band setting up for the evening! One evening we decided to go out to eat in Minong. We went to the Longbranch Saloon and had some really good barbecue! Minong is only about 6 minutes away and has a grocery store which is also the Jack Link's jerky outlet, a sporting goods store for all the fishing things and bait, and an A&W. There are really nice beaches nearby if you don't want to swim where you fish. One is in Shell Lake, the other is at the Totogatic County Park. Quotes
What a great place!

Quotes continued...Hayward isn't too far away and has lots of great shopping (an old fashioned candy store and a gourmet popcorn place!), a winery, nice restaurants, and of course the Fishing Hall of Fame with the giant Muskie! Kathy and Jason were both very helpful, answering questions giving tips. We really enjoyed our stay at their beautiful quiet chalet! Quotes
