About Gail Rahlf

Our dream was to build a lake home for all to enjoy! We have been coming to Hayward for many years enjoying vacations. This home has everything you might need, to relax, build a fire, and enjoy the lakeside views. Fishing is wonderful, lots of water to play, and enjoy a fun Vacation. You will have a chance to be the first to enjoy this fantastic new home, with all the bells and whistles. This home will have a couple Kayaks, and stand up boards, to enjoy, upon request. Come play in our new home!

Why Gail Rahlf chose Northern Wisconsin

We found this gem, and just fell in love with it! We had to build on this flat, lot, that offers the sunsets, and serene setting. The low elevation, is sure to please. Sandy shore will be great to play, for the little ones. We built this with you in mind, with all the extras. Come stay enjoy the wilderness, of Hayward WI.

What makes this house unique

New Home with 3 Bedrooms 2 Baths, and a 4 season room. This home will sleep 8 with a pull out sofa bed, in the Lakeside four season room.

One of the most beautiful, functional cabins VRBO has to offer.

  • 5 of 5

My hats off to ownership and their management. Being a member of VRBO for over a decade, and traveling to the Hayward area for most of my life, this has been the best stay we've had. This property was well thought out, meticulously designed, and a beautiful location. One of the most functional homes I've stayed, this property has it all, with modern upgrades, while keeping that North Woods feel--steps away from Grindstone Lake. Crystal clear waters makes for a very inviting lake for the whole family to enjoy a swim, fish, and many other water sports. We even portaged to Lac Court Oreilles, it was quite the adventure! My children will remember this trip for a lifetime.

Property and house and all the trimmings were awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and property were perfect for us. The kids all loved the kayaks and paddle boards were just what the kids wanted. They all enjoyed fishing but... they didn't catch any walleye for me to cook :(

Nice cabin for family of 4

  • 4 of 5

This quaint, rustic cabin was a perfect escape for our family. Our boys age 4 and 7 enjoyed swimming and watching the crawdads in the water. We also enjoyed the firepit and grill at nighttime. Nearby Hayward has plenty to do. We highly recommend the lumberjack show as well as the fishing museum.

Nice getaway place

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was very nice and clean. We were surprised with all the kitchen items that were there to be used. We enjoyed the fire pit and the fact that there was firewood to burn. We met the neighbors on both sides of the cabin and they were super nice and friendly. The only negative that I could come up with is that it is tight quarters if pulling a boat into the yard area. Very satisfied with our stay here.

Everything We Expected

  • 5 of 5

I thought I had posted this review right after we returned from our weekend but when I referred a friend just this week he said he didn't see my review here so I decided to come back on and post the review now. I think it says something that I wanted to come back and review the place this long after the trip. The cabin was clean and well maintained. The pictures are accurate. It is hard to notice but there is a fire pit there too. Gail was great to deal with. Grindstone is a great fishing lake. Hayward isn't far away. It was a relaxing weekend and I highly recommend this cabin and the people that handle the rentals.

Nice Time

  • 5 of 5

The place was a "cabin" which we thought was great! The week we were there very quiet and relaxing. The beach was rocky not sandy and the dock needs to be extended for boating/swimming. Cabin well stocked with essentials more than other places we have rented in the area. Having a washer/dryer was fantastic. Had great communication the property manager/owner on any questions we had.
