About Pete Grebner

I have vacationed here in the Hayward area since before my Dad had the house built. We had the foundation, basement and house framing built, and finished the inside ourselves. Our family of 5 vacationed here every summer, and some winters!! My Dad, a WWII veteran, still lives in Hayward. I live in the Dallas area, and am a retired SGT, TXARNG. Graduated from Capital University in Columbus OH, and travel back to visit my Dad regularly.

Pete Grebner purchased this house in 1974

Why Pete Grebner chose Hayward

This house was my Mom and Dad's and is kept in the family. It is a fabulous vacation spot for families with youngsters, teenagers, on up. I learned to waterski here and have caught countless blue gill, walleye, and bass all around the lake. In fact, there is a bay on the other end of the lake called Blue Island Bay. Its name comes from the Chicago suburban area that I grew up in, although it was named a long time before we ever came here.

I love dogs as they are part of my family, so bring your pooch along if you are a concientious owner.

Wonderful lake house

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends had a three day adults only weekend at the lake house. What a nice place to relax! The owner is very prepared and had everything we needed and more. This home and lake will not disappoint...the water was beautiful with a beautiful view from the deck. We will be visiting again.

Great property, great lake

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for 6 adults, it was clean, well maintained, and on the best lake in WI!

Spacious, everything you need to cook meals in the kitchen.

We loved it and we'll be back!

Thanks for sharing your cabin with us so we can make memories with our friends!

My wife, four kids and dog, decided at last minute to try and rent a cabin. Our summer has been filled with work and sports, and not much fun. We were able to find four days to get away. We got extremely lucky and found this place. The owner Pete is an extremely nice guy! He had to do a little shifting around with his caretaker, and the guest that was there before us, but he was able to get us in, we sincerely appreciated it. He also answered questions almost immediately, including fishing advice. The cabin is very well taken care of, everything was comfortable, and worked like it should. Its a pretty good hike up the hill from the lake, but they don't charge extra for the exercise program. If we rent another cabin in this area again, it will be this one.
