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.

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

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 Northern Wisconsin

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.

We had a wonderful time staying at this property. Both homes were clean and spacious. Our family of ten was made very comfortable! Fishing and canoeing were fantastic. The kids enjoyed the kayaks too! The lake is clean, cool and clear. We will be returning to Haywaud next year!! Thank you 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!

Great cabins and property!

  • 5 of 5

The cabins were very nice, and the property was awesome. Just what we were looking for as it was very large, secluded, with great lake views and access, but still close enough to town and easy to get supplies. The two cabins slept 12 comfortably. Rented a pontoon from a resort right on the lake which was extremely easy and allowed us to explore and fish Placid Lake along with all the connected lakes, but there are plenty of canoes and kayaks already available there. Owners were very friendly and easy to deal with.

Best family get together ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

I needed a special place for my wife's family to be able to join us for her birthday. We came in from all over the country, and believe me, to a person everyone was blown away by the Duets! Sue and Jeff were incredibly helpful and patient. No one wanted to leave to do anything but enjoy the lake and the houses. It was a perfect vacation, and if you're interested in seeing some beautiful country and have fun fishing, swimming, and boating, this is the place for you. I wholeheartedly recommend this incredible place.

The Quintessential Northwoods Experience

  • 5 of 5

This property is really lovely. The pictures don't do justice to the views, the property and cabin interiors. We had a total of 12, between adults and kids, and we all had a great time. Both cabins are comfortably set up and offer fabulous views of Placid Lake. The dock is easy to launch a boat at, and the incline from the lake is gradual, rather than hundreds of steps straight up. We never heard another person, but we saw large snapping turtles, otter, cranes, eagles, deer, and of course, loved listening to the loons and bullfrogs. The lake is quiet, not a lot of boat traffic, but we were able to water ski. You will love this place if:

1. You like privacy. 10 acres with incredible frontage.

2. You like to fish. We caught many, and fed three families fish fry the last night.

3. You enjoy kayaking. Great lake for it.

4. You have a big group and don't want to cram into the same house.

5. You appreciate a clean place.

6. You like a screen porch and a good book. In addition to the screen porch on the lower cabin, the gazebo offers a quiet getaway.

7. Your idea of fun is to take a steam sauna then jump in the lake.

8. You love simply relaxing with your favorite beverage and enjoying the lake views.

The only thing the Duet doesn't have is a sloped grass lawn and sandy beach, which would have been nice for the toddlers in our group, but that would take away some of its ambiance. The swimming dock was great and offered a nice drop off for cannon-balling.

The firepit offers incredible sunset views.

The management team was friendly and helpful and made sure our stay was pleasant.
