Overview

About the property

One bedroom, 1 Bath, Living Room, Full Kitchen, 2 Decks, One Dog Can Stay Free

The cabin is located in a peaceful private setting. It sleeps two adults on a luxury queen bed. If you have kids - one could sleep on the couch (not pull out) and the other on a chaise lounger - or you could use a blow up mattress. 4 adults would be too much for the cabin. Cabin is really optimized for one couple.

Free use of Yukon Charlie snow shoes in the winter! Main snowmobile trail to Lake Superior right across the street! Plenty of room for your snowmobile and trailer (or boat trailer in the summer) in the driveway. XC and downhill skiing and at Mt Ashwabay. The amazing ice caves are only a few miles away!

Dog friendly - first dog stays for free! (If there is a 2nd dog - a $25/day extra rate applies -- the cabin isn't big enough for a couple of medium size dogs and up anyway) Beautiful private setting, with wrap around deck overlooking birch and pine trees in ravine. Flowing stream in spring.

Little Sand Bay beach is only a few miles away - and there is Meyers Beach, the beach in Cornucopia - or the beaches over on Madeline Island that you get to via ferry and bike rental (best to rent bike on Bayfield side.) Lots of sailing, hiking, biking, and artsy places in the Bayfield area. The new casino (Legendary Waters) is only ten minutes away.

The cabin was remodeled in 2012, and has a queen size Serta IComfort mattress with remote control for three levels of vibration. You can raise and lower head and feet. Includes Zero Gravity mode! There is a dresser and armoire in the bedroom along with a flat screen 'Smart' TV offering free movies via Amazon Prime and other apps. There is a full kitchen, granite counter tops, knotty cherry cabinets, knotty pine ceilings, quartzite walls, and wood stove.

Free Wifi and Sirius Satellite radio and Pandora stations! The music plays through the speakers in the living room from the Grace Digital Radio unit located in the bedroom.

You'll see more stars than you've ever seen at night - because the cabin is away from city lights. It is set back into birch and pine trees for a cozy feel. Bayfield is just a short 12 minute drive away - and the new Legendary Waters Casino is only 5 minutes away! Also just a couple minutes away is Little Sand Bay, where you can go kayaking and hiking.

About Rick Hauser

I'm related to the Hauser's who run the Hauser Farm (apples, flowers, berries, wine tasting and more) So - go check that out too!

Rick Hauser purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Rick Hauser chose Northern Wisconsin

There are so many great things to do in the Bayfield area - from artsy shops, to sailing, to mountain biking and hiking, seeing the sea caves or light houses, touring the Apostle Islands, and more. This location is nice and secluded - where you can see thousands of stars at night - but still be close enough to Bayfield to enjoy what the town has to offer (just a 12 minute drive)

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is pet friendly, and gives you the peace and quiet you are looking for. Extremely private. Amazing new Queen Serta iCloud Savant bed with adjustable base with massage action and 'Zero G' via remote. Amazing display of white lights on pine trees in the forest in back (turn on via remote from bedroom). Free Amazon Prime movies and free Wifi, and Sirius or Pandora music in bedroom, living room, and back deck (selectable) Complimentary popcorn, coffee, chocolates - and even dog treats for your dog! You may see deer, black bear, bald eagles, foxes, and more. Certified Wildlife Habitat and Travel Wisconsin Green Certified. Fully upgraded in unique, peaceful, serene setting - for year round use. Amazing snow displays on the pine trees in the winter and driveway is plowed after each snow. Amazing fall colors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your cabin and the Bayfield area. Everything was very clean, and the cabin looks great. It made for a very relaxing stay. We hope to return next year. Thanks again!

Just what we needed!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend at Rick's cabin! It was nothing short of relaxing, romantic, and just what we needed! Rick has created a perfect cabin the woods with all the things you could imagine you would need and more! We hiked the area, went to Bayfiled, tried to check out the ice caves, and then got to come back to a cozy, romantic cabin. Loved our nights by the fire with wine and games. On the last night we enjoyed a glass of wine out by the lit up trees in the back! So awesome! Our beagle Cooper was having a ball and loved the deep snow and all the new smells! I love that Rick allows you to bring your fur baby! We want to return in the Fall, I am sure the trees are breath taking! We will be back!! Thank you Rick for sharing your little slice of Heaven!!

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 3 nights/2 days with my dog. There is a lot to do in the area but we stayed close to home just to relax and reboot. The cabin was lovely...furnished very comfortably and had everything we could have wanted. The walks outside were beautiful and the weather was perfect. My dog enjoyed all the new scents and new areas to explore. I could not have asked for more.

Cabin in the North Woods of Wisconsin

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our weekend in Rick's cabin in the both north woods of Wisconsin! He has done an excellent job of incorporating special systems and finishes in his cabin, and we especially liked the wood-burning stove and back yard deck. I would advise anyone wanting to rent Rick's cabin to be somewhat tech competent and willing to read the extensive directions that he has provided on operating all the special systems. Another suggestion is to bring some kindling to help start a fire in the stove; there was plenty of dry firewood but only fire starter and the newspaper to get the fire going.

Owner's Response: HI Barry - thanks for the review. I supply the newspaper and fire starter because that is typically enough to get the logs going. I figured that if someone wants kindling - there are plenty of twigs and small downed branches all over in the back woods. No one local supplies that that I know of - unfortunately.... Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for the suggestions! I'll keep asking about kindling :-)

We had an awesome getaway at Hauser's Bayfield Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to "get away from it all", yet like some of the comforts of home, this is just the place. Far north on a peninsula jutting into Lake Superior, this cabin is nestled in a tall birch woods. While our cell phone coverage was lost this far north, we found the cabin with good directions, as it was pitch dark and the rain poured down. I was so happy to open the door, flip on the ambient lighting, and see MORE than a cabin. This was a HOME! Meticulously designed with all the updates of a modern home, this cabin offers couples a chance to enjoy nature (Breakfast on the backyard deck) or listening to good music in the living area. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, and best of all, our dog was welcome! Rick worked hard to make it a warm and inviting place. We were able to connect to WiFi, although a bit slow (Buffering!), and watched some Amazon Prime movies; but truthfully after trekking around Madeline Island, and a boat tour of the Mainland Sea Caves of the Apostle Islands, we were ready to call it a night...that is, after we enjoyed a bonfire in the fire pit, and a glass of wine! Thanks, Rick for your handbook of places to check out in the Bayfield area. We went to Hauser's Farm, and ate at some of your recommended restaurants. Hoping to come again,

Owner's Response: Thanks Kris - glad you enjoyed your stay. Yes - occasionally the movies or music buffers since 1.5mbs is the best I can do in that area. (isn't really rated for video streaming though folks typically get through with just a few buffers) Only only company serves for wifi - so they are my only choice :-) Hasn't been slow for web surfing to my knowledge - but I suppose if you compare it to 60 MBS at some people's homes - it might be!

Great honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Rick's amazing cabin and it was exactly what we hoped it would be. We wanted a relaxing, private and remote place to stay that was still close to town. The cabin was beautiful, comfortable and perfectly sized for the two of us; not sure how well a larger group would fit. We loved going into adorable Bayfield for the delicious food, cute shops and gorgeous vistas. We'd love to come back when we get a dog!
