Our family enjoyed every part of the home and stay on Round Lake. The setting was gorgeous and the home was in perfect condition and clearly a 5 star level location and property. We will definitely return next summer. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a luxury property in Hayward!

Excellent Choice!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to relax!

Recently hosted a "guys snowmobile trip" out of this cabin. There ended up being no snow. This very nice, oversized, comfortable space was the perfect place to hang out in, with or without snow.

Our group had an excellent trip, and a wonderful experience with Joni!

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this is an exceptional place! We had my husbands family together here for a milestone birthday celebration. We are a large group with children and adults and this house accommodated us so very well. We played pool and foosball, cards and board games. We cooked all our meals here and found the kitchen appliances to be higher end and well appointed. We even enjoyed a outdoor fire in the winter. Can't wait to come back!

Wonderful cabin for a group!

  • 5 of 5

My group (10) really enjoyed our weekend at the cabin and could not have asked for a better experience. There's enough bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone to be comfortable and the house has almost every amenity needed to accommodate a large group. Thanks for a great time!

A beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin last weekend for my sisters bachelorette. It was a very beautiful place and a fun and relaxing getaway for all of us girls! The cabin is very spacious with plenty of room for all of us. There is walking distance to a couple of bars and just a short drive to town! The view of the lake is an added bonus! Highly recommend this place!

The Most Amazing Time in a Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

This was the first year that my family and I took a full week vacation together. My parents rented this most amazing and beautiful cabin!! It was very roomy and had an amazing view from every window you look out. The deck overlooking the water is so relaxing. The lake is easy to get to from the cabin. I thought this was the perfect place for families that want to get together and wants to be out on the lake.

The cabin has nice games downstairs, that our family ended up having a foosball tournament and it was a blast. What a great way to get the family to be together.

Fantastic Cabin Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful. Very Spacious. Very Comfortable accommodations. Three usable floors. The kitchen is very roomy with several inside and one outside eating area. The scenery outside the large windows and from the decks is gorgeous. Everything you need except the food. Even an excellent pool table and foosball table. We had great fun with kids and adults enjoying our foosball tournaments. The owner, Joni, is great to work with. I highly recommend this property. We will be coming back very soon.
