About the property

Enjoy the ambiance of this small, quiet lake during all four seasons

Our lake home is located on a serene, clear, quiet lake ten miles east of Hayward, WI. The place is perfect for a "get away" to enjoy the many winter recreational activities, enjoy the beauty of the fall season, and/or summer fun at the lake.

Lovejoy Lake is a small lake with no public access, thus it is very quiet and peaceful. During the summer the lake is great for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, floating or simply enjoy the view of the lake from the screened in porch. . Paddle boards, a paddle boat, a kayak, and a fishing boat are available for your use.,

You may also want to enjoy the solitude and beauty of Northern Comfort in the fall -- fishing continues to be great, the ambiance is awesome and plenty of local trails are available for walking and/or biking while enjoying the beauty of the autumn colors. Winter is a special time too -- a time to try some ice fishing and/or hit the trails for snow shoeing or skiing, and/or just snuggle up with a book and enjoy the serenity of Northern Comfort.

We are less then 10 miles from Hayward which is an awesome town for family fun. The area is great for all types of spring, summer, fall and winter recreational activities.

We just recently purchased this lake home for rental purposes. Our current home is next door. We fell in love with the lake and all that the Hayward area has to offer so when this place was available to purchase we wanted to share the joy and relaxation we enjoy at Lovejoy with others.

The upper level of this home consists of two bedrooms, a master bath and a main bathroom. A nice size open space includes a family room, dining area, and a kitchen supplied with all the necessary cookware and utensils needed to make a great meal. A plus is that we have chickens and if our chickens are laying we love to share eggs! Also on the upper level is a spacious screened porch that looks out onto Lovejoy Lake.

The lower level consists of a non conforming bedroom, a workroom, laundry facilities, a bathroom and another family room. When we purchased this home there were many shelves in the lower level family room so being an avid reader, rather then donating the books I had purchased and read, they are now becoming a small library for your reading pleasure. Also being shelved are many DVD's for rainy day entertainment!

Hayward is a great city for family activities. There are also many great golf courses and dining options. We are only a few miles from the Birkie Trails and the Chequamegon National Forest.

We are strictly enforcing no pets and a no smoking policy.

Surpassed our expectations !

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a vacation home. We stayed mid October 2017. Beautiful home on a private lake. The house had plenty of room for six adults. The changing leaves were stunning. It was quiet and serene. Our hosts went above and beyond by providing fresh eggs from their chickens to locating a couple of fishing poles and bait. The welcoming packet was a nice touch, it contained local restaurant, their favorite places to dine, grocery stores and area attractions. We will definitely book again and stay longer then a weekend. It was well worth our eight hour drive. Thank you, Mary and Mike.

Our cabin was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. We loved the screened in porch where we sat out on a lot even when it sprinkled. The fire ring was great, enough chairs for all 6 of us. The scenery was breathtaking. Very quiet. Mary and Mike are fantastic hosts. Responded to questions in a timely manner. They were very friendly and informative. Would come back!!!!

Our stay at the cabin was so relaxing and enjoyable. Very spacious and clean.

Well supplied with everything you need and much more. Mary and Mike were very gracious and kind. We all had such a wonderful time !! Thank you for sharing your lovely place!!

Our only recommendation would be a little more lighting in the basement bathroom and a better mirror above the vanity.

The house and the view of the Lake was amazing. We had such a great time sitting on the upper screened in deck. The view of the lake and listening to the Loons was so enjoyable. We would highly recommend this house and the owners. Beautiful vacation stay. Thank you again Mary & Mike!

Wonderful quiet area for a vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay here and the owners were very accommodating and helpful. We enjoyed the water, the view and especially the large screened in porch where we could hear sounds from the water and birds. We were directed to places we could find excellent pizza and ice cream :)

About Mary Roles and Mike Fleischhacker

My husband Mike and I are retired educators. We both taught and were administrators in the twin cities area. Ten years ago, shortly after our first granddaughter was born, we searched and found our perfect lake home. Every weekend and days off work that we could get away, we would spend here! After we both retired, we held on to our home in the White Bear Lake, Mn area for a short time then in 2015 we sold that house and became full time residents of Hayward, Wi. In November of 2016 we were able to purchase the lake home next to ours -- thus the creation of Northern Comfort and our ability to share with others the serenity, beauty and ambiance of Lovejoy Lake and the surrounding area!

Mary Roles and Mike Fleischhacker purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Mary Roles and Mike Fleischhacker chose Hayward

We chose to purchase on Lovejoy Lake because it is small, has not public access, the water is clear, and the fishing is great. We especially enjoy the quietness of this area because of no public access; therefore it is only lake residents and renters that are on the lake. A gentlemen's agreement among owners includes a "no wake" policy which makes all the lake activities more enjoyable. During the winter, if possible, some of us create a ski trail around the lake.

What makes this cabin unique

A special benefit of Northern Comfort is the screened in porch that overlooks Lovejoy Lake! Our guests have enjoyed many hours reading, playing cards, eating, listening to the loons, enjoying the antics of our free range chickens and/or simply enjoying the beauty and serenity of the setting.
