Hayward House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Welcome to 'Our Great Escape,' LLC. Isn't it time you 'escaped' the fast-paced craziness of today's world and took a step back in time to a simpler way of life?

OGE is located just 16 miles East of Hayward, WI off of Hwy. 77, and then 8 Miles North on 'Upper A.' Hayward features charming shops, the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame, numerous festivals, and a variety of attractions. Just 7 miles from your front door is a full-service convenience/ bait and tackle store for those last minute and emergency needs to include boat and auto gas. There are several dining/supper clubs and restaurants including a couple on Lost Land Lake, as well as golf courses, riding stables, and boat repair; all within a short driving distance. The upscale Ranch style home sits just 50 feet back from 183 feet of sugar sand beach featuring a Western view of soaring bald eagles, loons, and spectacular sunsets. OGE's panoramic front porch is located in Wilson Bay just inside Green Point on the quiet waters of Lost Land Lake, and the Chequamegon National Forest is your surrounding Northwoods home. Lost Land Lake is a 1304-acre gem connected by thoroughfare to 1049-acre Teal Lake; they are the 'Quiet Lakes;' lakes with a 10mph speed limit, no wake within 100' of the shoreline, and no motorized watersports to include: no water-skiing, jet-sking, or tubing; these activities are not allowed at any time.

Included in your rental is a 40' long dock with bench seat for summer night stargazing,lounging, and of course fishing for the little ones in your group. Also included is a 14' V-hull 4-seat Alumacraft boat. Additional boat, boat motor, and/or pontoon rental is available from Wilson Bay Lodge just 5 minutes away by boat or car. So, whether you are an avid fisherman, nature lover, canoe or kayak enthusiast, or just want to unwind, it's all waiting for you, not just outside... but inside as well. It is OGE's desire that you experience the peace and quiet of lake living during your stay, while enjoying all the comforts of home.

The Ranch home is 1 1/2 stories with all rooms on one level, except the bedroom loft that overlooks the Great Room with its' two-story river rock fireplace, and a finished full-service laundry room is located in the basement. The open-floor plan is not only conducive to entertaining and socializing, but there are views of the lake from almost every room. In fact, the West facing windows and French doors in the kitchen, Great Room, and one of the two master en-suite bedrooms, bring the outdoors in to you. The fully equipped kitchen has all the expected conveniences plus stainless appliances, and a large center island with seating for four. The dining area is adjacent to the kitchen island and features a large dining room table with a built-in lazy susan that comfortably seats up to ten. There is also a folding 4-seat dining table for up to four toddlers/small children. There are four good size bedrooms- two with connecting en-suite bathrooms, and a third bathroom between two hallway bedrooms.

Our third year at OGE was the best yet. Super fun times with three generations of Family and celebration o two Summer Birthdays. Found a back door up to the town of Cable for Grocery and nice restaurant. Hope to rent a pontoon to see the rest of the Lake next year.Great July weather. Only one tough weather time during one night that knocked out power and Satellite TV. The Generator kicked in immediately and a service tech, thanks to the owner, fixed the Dish by the end of the day.

Whole unit is clean and well maintained. Very wonderful attention paid by the owner for any need. We will be back for year four!!!!

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at "Our Great Escape" and we can't wait to book again next year! This place is everything as advertised and more. The family memories we created during our stay are truly priceless. The home is located in a breathtakingly beautiful National Forest. We "ooed" and "ahhd" on the drive on upper A to get there. My 6 year old daughter thought it looked like scenery right out of a fairy tale. Upon arrival, we were just blown away by the home and the lake! The place is well maintained and the layout is phenomenal for large groups! We had a total of 10 people staying there and it never seemed crowded. The kitchen is a dream for a groups of any size and we shared family meals every day on the large dining table. The screened in porch was the adult favorite for morning coffees and afternoon/evening cocktails. The kids loved the beach and dock for swimming and fishing. We were lucky to be staying here during a solar storm and were able to view the Northern Lights! The best seat in the house for watching the Northern skies? The bench at the end of the dock of course! A truly remarkable moment that everyone is still talking about. I highly recommend renting a pontoon from Wilson Bay Lodge. We used it to fish, swim, and to just "tootle" around the lake. We enjoyed going down the thoroughfare to Teal Lake and the fishing on Teal was just as great as our Lost Land Lake!

We cannot wait for next year and can't thank Rob enough for sharing this gem with us!

Perfect Family Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at "Our Great Escape" and our first visit to Lost Land Lake. The house was the perfect accommodations for our large group. There were a total of 12 of us, ages 8-76, and the spacious, open concept home allowed us to spend quality time together and never feel crowded! The home is so well maintained, comfortable and fully stocked for cooking, relaxing, playing games and winding down in the evening for a family movie night. The kitchen is a dream to cook in--especially since you have a lovely view of the lake and yard as you prepare meals! There is a large table and island for dining at, which allowed our large group to have a big family dinner each night--as we watched the lake and sunset of course! The backyard gently slopes down to the lake, dock and a beach area and there were more then enough comfy beach chairs and loungers for us all to relax, watch the young ones swim and fish and enjoy the peace and quiet of this pristine lake. My mother does not get around very well and it was a priority for me to find a house that had very easy access to the lake and close enough that she could watch all of the festivities. I can't imagine a property that would have better lake access, proximity and yard space than "Our Great Escape" -it was the perfect spot for our age range of guests. The sandy beach was awesome for swimming and wading in--my dad enjoyed using this shallow area to get in and out of his canoe with ease! We rented a very nice pontoon boat from Wilson Bay Lodge and went out on the water every day--except one that was a bit rainy. The lake is so clean and quiet for swimming in and of course the teenagers and little ones enjoyed fishing! Mom and I enjoyed our morning coffee on the screened in porch and were treated to a visit from a heron nearly every morning--often it would land in the yard and walk out on the dock! The screened in porch was the favorite spot of my mom who was out there every morning and evening taking in the beauty of it all. Rob is very thorough in all of his information which helped us prepare for the trip and he keeps his property in excellent condition with detailed info. to make guests feel right at home and at ease in using all aspects of this beautiful home and property. We loved our time at "Our Great Escape!"

Perfect Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying at "Our Great Escape". Three generations of my family (ages 70 - 15) gathered to rest, relax and enjoy the beauty of the Northwoods and that we did! The first couple of days were chilly and rainy. The power went out but within seconds, there was a seamless transition back to normal as the back-up generator kicked in. Once power was restored, the generator turned itself off. I think I want one of these for my home! Anyways, the rest of our week was great. Every morning we watch a momma duck and her ducklings swim the length of the lake frontage. My 18 year old son fished sun up til sundown. We rented boats and motors from Wilson Bay Lodge...nice new boats and motors. In my opinion, the best room in the house is the screened in porch. Plenty of seating for 8-10 people and AWESOME sunsets! There were 11 of us in all and the house was spacious enough for everyone. Rob has done a great job of making you feel right at "home".

A Perfect Lakehouse; a Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

First-timers here, all over 55. My mother, my husband, and I had the most amazing, relaxing, enjoyable week here -- just the 3 of us basking in the luxury and beauty of the house, the lake, and the woods. The first few days of our vacation were unseasonably cold, with wind, rain, and highs only in the 50's and 60's. And yet we STILL felt comfortable, relaxed, and as if we were actually on the water, with large windows and views to match. This house is very close to the lake. It's also spacious enough to allow plenty of privacy.

The sun came out on Wednesday and from then on we hardly came indoors. It was still a bit chilly to swim much (though we tried) but we waded in the soft sand of the clear water and were satisfied. The porch was terrific, with many comfortable chairs. At night we had campfires, and made sure to make reservations one evening at Lost Land Lake Lodge for their famous fish fry. We rented a pontoon boat from Wilson's and had an exciting time exploring both lakes, Lost Land and Teal, with connecting river. Saw eagles, saw loons, saw deer.

I can't imagine what would make this place any better. Rob Bohde made sure we 'seniors' had all we needed, oodles of information and help. We're already planning to return next year.

Our 2nd stay at OGE

  • 5 of 5

For the second year in a row we enjoyed a wonderful week at OGE. It is definitely a hidden gem in the North Woods. Our three generation Family time is so easy at this perfectly outfitted Home.

The Inside and Outside are so clean and well maintained. Owner Rob makes any operations items easy to execute.

We enjoyed the Fireplace and Outside Pit so often, he even ordered more wood and it was delivered the same day we requested it. A quiet low wake lake makes it so nice. We have plans to return for next year too!!!
