Overview

About the property

The Duet

This property is well suited for vacationing with multiple generations, more than one family, or with a group of friends.

The original log cabin has two bedrooms with queen beds, and a loft with a full bed and a single bed.

The bathroom has a tiled walk in shower. This cabin has a fireplace, screen porch and large deck overlooking the lake, a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, satellite tv, and wireless Internet.

The second cabin has a king bed in the bedroom, a

sleeping loft with queen mattress (headroom in loft is not sufficient for standing - truly this is just a sleeping loft), a full futon trundle,

and two pullout love seats. There are two bathrooms in

the cabin, one with a shower and one with a bathtub.

There is a fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, dining area,

satellite tv, and a grill and picnic table on the deck.

This a great location for 'quiet sport' enthusiasts.

Spend the day swimming, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, or just relaxing on the deck with a good book.

There are two docks on the property, one for

swimming and one for fishing. In the evening enjoy the

lakeside fire pit and picnic area, or take a short walk thru the woods to the gazebo and sauna which are

joined by a large deck. Also, the owners have installed a flow hive in a fenced in portion of the property. The bees are no trouble, but we do like to let prospective renters know that they're there:)

While you are here, take advantage of all that the

Hayward area has to offer, golf courses, restaurants,

shopping, antiquing, LCO casino, horseback riding, etc.

There is something for everyone to do or simply relax

and enjoy the gardens and the beautiful north woods

setting.

About Susan and Jeff Diedrich

I grew up just North of Hayward, and moved back ten years ago after several years in 'the big city' of Minneapolis. The North Woods is in our blood, and I'm delighted to be raising two young children up here with my husband.

Susan and Jeff Diedrich purchased this cabin in 1990

Why Susan and Jeff Diedrich chose Hayward

My husband, Jeff, and I fell in love with these cabins on this beautifully wooded property the minute we saw them, and have spent lots of happy times here with our children, including kayaking the beautiful lake. A dear friend of ours owns the property, and as she lives elsewhere, has asked that we manage the properties for rent.

Fantastic vacation

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property as 5 adults and 4 dogs. The two cabins were perfect for us. It is a little odd that the cabin with 2 bedrooms and a loft had one bath, while the cabin with 1 bedrooms and a loft had two, but it worked for us. The only thing that we would have liked more was having a beach and being closer to the water. We rented a pontoon boat and kept it at the dock and kayaks everyday. At night we would hear the loons and bulldogs. The dogs loved exploring the trails and chasing frogs. We left the property only 2 or 3 times the whole week - it was so relaxing and welcoming.

As usual...a wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to The Duet, and the place was just as charming and wonderful as the first time we visited. The lake is quiet and full of fish, the grounds are immense and the screen porch offers a wonderful view. Really nice for a large group. We heart The Duet.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip back to this property and we were again very please with our stay. We are a large family with eight kids, ten in all, and it's difficult to find a single property that meets all of our needs. But here there is ample room for everyone between the two cabins and plenty of privacy. The property itself is lovely with beautiful landscaping and a lovely garden. Several days during our stay we helped ourselves to fresh raspberries from the garden. Both cabins are clean and in good working order. We were all comfortable and had no issues of any kind. Jeff and Susan who manage the property are kind, friendly folks. Feel confident when working with them. As for the lake, it's wonderful! We have spent some time on various lakes in the Hayward area and Lake Placid we believe makes the best location for a nice lake vacation. It's fairly small, so good for canoeing and kayaking. But Plaice connects into the Tiger Cat chain of lakes if you're looking for more adventure. The wildlife on this lake is fantastic! The fishing during our stay was pretty good too. Our family gives this property two thumbs way up and we are all hoping to come back for a third summer next year.

Thanks Jeff and Susan!

Wonderful getaway for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Both Susan and Jeff were what made our vacation experience exceptional. They were so accomindating in a time of need and we just feel in love with this property. Great to have the two cabins if you have a large group or young ones. We were able to go back and forth to cabins to play games once the babies were alsleep using baby monitors. The sauna was a highlight for us esp when we did the cool dip in the lake. The kayaks were used daily we found it a great lake to explore, you can paddle for miles if you hook into the chain of lakes. We took full advantage of all the amenities. Thanks for everything!
