About Kevin and Joanne Renfro
We bought are home in November 2000. With friends originally in the area, we had been visiting Hayward for over 10 years prior to our cabin's purchase. Over the years we have made many improvements to our home, most significantly our basement, kitchen, and our bathroom. We enjoy our cabin, Moose Lake, and Hayward very much and would love for others to have the same enjoyable experiences that we have year after year. We attempt to provide all amenities in our cabin that are needed for a relaxing visit. We have 3 children who won't even let us consider selling and relocating somewhere closer; it's a home filled with many memories and good times. Our future renters can be assured that our place is maintained in a way that is reflective of our own standards since, whenever it's not being rented out, we vacation there as well.

Why Kevin and Joanne Renfro chose Hayward
Why Moose Lake. It's magical! Truly. There is ample fishing, it's large enough for skiing, tubing, sailing, and shallow enough for some warm swims. Moose Lake is a seemingly Quiet Lake but without any motor restrictions. The roadways surrounding the lake have very light traffic, if any. Numerous ATV trails provide miles of motorized adventure and also carve out well groomed hiking routes. Eagles live here and are often seen flying around and also hanging on a tree branch by the dam. River otters will greet you as you kayak or canoe around the shorelines, loons can be heard in the evening. Renters have sighted both deer and even a bear swimming across the lake. Why this property? Because wilderness abounds and quiet nights, peaceful days are an actual reality.
What makes this House unique
It's true that Moose Lake is quiet and once the refrigerator is stocked, a traveler would never have to leave. However, the fortunate flip side to being only 23 miles from Hayward's city limits is that commercial entertainment is only a short drive away as well as some very fine dining opportunities. A family can have it all while staying on Moose Lake and 1 week never seems long enough!

We enjoyed our stay on Moose Lake. The cabin was very nice and located perfectly with the lake. We spent every day either lounging by the lake or boating around. We are looking forward to booking a couple of weeks for next summer.
Beautiful stay on Moose Lake
The cabin was really roomy and clean. Nice wrap-around deck. Great dock for tieing up the boat while we all swam at the end of the dock. Nice ladder on pier to get back out of water. Not far from a landing for your boat called Louie's Landing where they also serve great food. Overall stay. We'll be back.
We loved our stay, we had nice cool weather and had good fishing on Moose lake. We love the nice big private yard especially for our dog to run around. Lots of mosquitoes this year but that’s to be expected in the north woods. We love getting away to the peace and quiet!
A Private Getaway
We loved staying at this very private home on a very quiet lake. Secluded enough for privacy yet only about 20 mins from the Hayward downtown area.
Joanne was super sweet when we chatted and she was VERY accommodating when we needed something as well as allowing us to stay a bit longer. I would highly recommend this home!
We had a great time the cabin was perfect within just a few steps from the lake and It was very pri
We also enjoyed the wraparound deck and the views of the lake!
True to pics and description. Nice and private with great water access.
Cabin was great size for family of 4, kitchen was very well equipped. Close to the water and quiet and secluded. The windows all need to be replaced, we could not have them open at night as the screens are falling apart and wood rotting so bugs got in. Bedding needs to be updated, master was the only bed that the sheets actually fit and stayed on the bed. It would have been great to have some firewood as we couldn’t find any in the area for a campfire. We were also hoping for a few more chairs maybe a few loungers would be great for relaxing by the water! Overall it was a great stay, we went to enjoy the outdoors and it was perfect for that.
Thank you for your input! We just arrived home from our cabin this past Saturday and while we agree with you completely about the integrity of the front picture window--the storm sliders are broken--the remaining windows inside the cabin are in great shape. While staying at our place, we did collect estimates for the replacement of that window and a new/larger one will be installed this fall. As for the bedding, I purchased 2 new "lighter" comforters for the queen beds and there are 2 extra comforters (warmer) still located in the master bedroom--sheets must have been a mix up with our cleaning service.
While we do not provide firewood and it is not included in our Confirmation Letter there is an abundance of it sold at local gas stations, grocery stores, and road side establishments. Thanks again for your constructive comments and we're very happy that you still enjoyed the area and the serene nature of Moose Lake.
