Spectacular Up North Cabin for a Family!

  • 5 of 5

We loved out stay and the cabin is fantastic and perfectly set up. We used all the good advice for things to do and places to go. It's a little remote if you're the type who wants to pop into town for shopping or lunch, but our family was looking for a quiet week with lots of board games, XC skiing and big family meals and it was exactly what we expected. Except for the coyote skin over the back of the couch... we didn't expect that :)

Owner's Response: Ok, here is the story on the coyote...I am at a friends house, and this coyote, is lying across their banister, being from the "city" . I ask, what's that??? Oh it's a coyote, my friend responds. To be polite I say "oh cool" . The next weekend he shows up at my house with a Very big dead coyote, and says here you go, I shot this for you! So 4 Hundred dollars later.... there you have it!!!!! WE REALLY ENJOYED HAVING YOU, PLEASE COME STAY AGAIN!!!!!! RICK AND GAIL RAHLF

Gorgeous Property!

  • 5 of 5

My triplet sisters and our husbands stayed here for our birthday week late May. As soon as we pulled in we were in love with the place, gorgeous log cabin home. Then we walked inside, even more beautiful plus we had a triplet birthday cake waiting for us from Gail.

The place was spotless, plenty of bedding, kitchen stocked with pans for cooking and dish soap. We had everything we needed plus more . The pontoon boat was thoroughly enjoyed especially the electric anchor and trolling motor .The location of this property is perfect. Close to Hayward or you can take a short trip to Spooner or Stone Lake to explore . The Landing Boat Ramp and Resort is a five minute drive or pontoon ride. We took the pontoon over for lunch and really had a delicious meal.

Eagles nest is a five star home in a five star setting. Great fire pit with a beautiful view of the Chippewa flowage. We are also birders and the birding was great. Fishing was a little slow due to weather but we still caught enough for a big fish fry one eve.

Thank you Gail for being such a great and gracious host. Our trip was outstanding ! Beautiful place, we are coming back if you will have us!

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

What a special place! We have been going up to the Flowage for almost 30 years but after my dad sold his cottage a couple of years ago we were at a bit of loss. We found this place and fell in love! It is clean, neat and a great access point to the water. The beach is great, good dock, and the cabin was well equipped. We will be back soon!

Serene Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We chose to vacation here based on the photos and we were not disappointed. This lovely log home exceeded our expectations and we felt very much at home here. Plenty of space and privacy with beautiful views of the lake and wooded areas. Weather-wise, the first few days were in the mid 20's and perfect for long walks in nature and hanging out at the fire pit. Although the last couple of days were alarmingly cold at -30 with windchill outside, we kept cozy indoors throughout the remainder of our stay. We had everything we needed for a comfortable, relaxing vacation. We highly recommend Eaglesnest and would love to return!
