TANNING POINT LODGE ON NELSON LAKE

Hayward Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 5 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

* Note: Always e-mail and or call for info! *

Last minute short rentals during unused weekdays can be requested. Previous renters have priority for the next year when they check out.

During the peak summer we favor weekly rentals from Friday to Friday or Sunday to Sunday so two weekends are not taken for family use.

This magnificent 3-floor family lodge is on 600’ of southwest facing gentle sloping shoreline on Nelson Lake with 2500 acres. It is one of the most majestic and relaxing setting for a vacation retreat. Unlike many overdeveloped lakes, more than 50% of the lakes shoreline is inhabited only by nature and her wildlife. Make sure you look for the nesting bald eagles, loons, geese, swans or osprey that we are honored to have selected this as their summer home. The property has majestic fir trees, a private small boat launch and 2 docks on the finest setting of the 31-mile shoreline of Nelson Lake with wilderness islands, bay and forest views. The large deck was expanded, two new larger docks, and a new circle brick fire pit were updated.

The lodge is ideal for retreats, several couples and family gatherings. The spacious lakefront yard is perfect for family games with a large circle brick and rock fire pit for evening bonfires (wood provided). Two nice public boat launches are not far away. Swim, fish, boat,jet ski, waterski, snowmobile, cross-country ski, or bike from the property. The beach is sandy in places by the main dock and rocky in others. We swim and float on innertubes by the main dock with a swim ladder. A 16 foot aluminum row boat and 2 person paddleboat are provided. Pontoon and fishing boat rental is available on the lake. Nelson lake is not a heavily used lake especially at our location and has several resorts, eating spots, and bars that can be boated/pontooned/driven to. The Hayward area and nearby Bayfield peninsula (60 miles) offer unlimited vacation opportunities such as the October Bayfield Apple Festival and the Stone Lake Cranbury Days. * No smoking*

Main floor: large two-story vaulted great room with gas fireplace and DirecTV HD on 52” Sony HD TV with Blueray HD DVD and VCR; spacious dining room with table seating for 12; large kitchen with granite counters, island and 2 sinks; 2 large lakeview bedrooms each with deck access (one with king bed, one with queen); large full 3/4 bath with two sinks. Every room has great lake views. Deck on 4 sides with 2 sides covered. DSL Internet with WIFI broadcast is onsite. The deck and main floor bedroom and bathroom doorways are handicap wheelchair accessable.

Upper floor: 2 large bedrooms with lake views, each with sitting areas. One bedroom with luxury queen bed, 37' flat screen HD TV and DVD, and full bath plus two-person Jacuzzi. Second bedroom suite with luxury queen bed and 3/4 bath and 32' flat screen HD TV and DVD.

Lower floor: large family room and bedroom with lake views; bedroom has a queen and twin bed. 43” DirecTV HD Samsung HD TV with DVD or gaming use. Bunk room with 2 twin bunk beds, sofa pullout with double bed and another sleeping room with single bed. Also a 3/4 bathroom and laundry room with washer/dryer.

The American Birkebeiner and Fat Boy Tire bike trails for cross country skiing/biking and snowmobile trails are a short distance away. Take back roads to Seeley, which is the central gathering spot for drinks/food, occasional entertainment, and a rest stop.

Great Grandfather August Tanning purchased land in 1933 on the Totogetic River that in 1935 was flooded by the new dam to create Nelson Lake. Since his land was flooded a section of land was substituted. There have been several versions and updates of houses starting with a pole shed, a one bedroom, a 1980 major update to a 2 bedroom house added on to the original foundation, and finally a teardown and building of the current Lodge in 2002. The family property in owned by the parents and five siblings.

Ron or Carol Tanning purchased this lodge in 1933

The most magnificent 180% views from the house and the wrap-around deck always has a shady or sunny place to sit.

Peace and solitude compared to most lake places.

Annual Family Weekend

For the past eleven years I and my five siblings and our spouses have spent a weekend together to honor and remember our beloved parents. We've stayed many places, and to a person this property has been our favorite. The lodge was just as described, only better. We found it to be meticulously clean with wonderful beds and an amazing kitchen...we love to cook!
The owners were great to work with. Sadly, as we prepared to head home, I misplaced my grandmother's antique ring. After much searching, many tears and prayers, I felt it was gone forever. However, I was assured they'd keep an eye out for it. Two days ago (3 months after our stay) I received a call from the custodians saying they'd found the ring...now many more tears and feelings of gratitude. Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful lodge. My family would love to make a return visit next fall.

What a greate lodge and property. We enjoyed some great times by the firepit each night, and out on the lake during the day. The kids loved the yard and the water.

We had a wonderful time being together as a family, cooking in the amazing kitchen, having our morning coffee on the deck, and making smores and singing at the increadable fire pit. You have a beautiful lodge for families to come together and strengthen their relationships.

We all enjoyed it so very much. The mist covered lake in the mornings and the loons calling at night gave each day a glorious start and end. The lodge gave all of us plenty of room. The serenity of this lakehouse leaves nothing to be desired.r
