Less than 10 minutes and a world away from downtown Hayward, the Sunroom Suite is situated in what feels like a private woodland paradise. The rooms are thoughtfully and stylishly appointed. The master bedroom has a lake+island view and is bathed in light through the windows and skylights. It's the perfect place to start a Northwoods adventure. Or stay put and take out the canoe, go for a walk in the gardens, swim, have a campfire and enjoy the great outdoors. 2nd bedroom available on request

The space
Main BEDROOM has beautiful views with plants and rich woodwork — a perfect haven for rest and relaxation. Restore yourself with sun+moonlight coming from all directions and views of the lake and island. In warmer seasons, it’s all gardens, birds and water while Fall’s brings a magnificent full technicolor panorama mirrored onto the lake. And when the temps go down, it’s a cozy retreat, especially when there’s a beautiful blanket of snow to set off the tall pines which surround the guesthouse.

The KITCHENETTE includes a microwave, coffee maker, small fridge, dishes, silverware, glasses and mugs. Coffee and tea are to be supplied by guests. If you need anything, please feel free to ask.

OVERFLOW BEDROOM increases occupancy for up to 4 guests. NOTE: Booking this bedroom may present a privacy issue. It's separate from adjoining units but there is no door and the bedrooms are within hearing distance of each other and the host's quarters.

The BATHROOM is spa-like and spacious with a luxuriously deep 2-person soaking tub.

Guest access
The Sunroom and Upstairs Suites share a guest entrance. Guest are asked to let others pass through this space before entering in the unlikely event there are others nearby. The green sliding louvered door the separates the 2 units and is usually remains closed unless the weather is below zero. I also use this room nominally to adjust the thermostat and lights if necessary.

2ND OVERFLOW BEDROOM is available by prior arrangement with host. NOTE: Booking this bedroom may present a privacy issue. It's separate from adjoining units but there is no door and the bedrooms are within hearing distance of each other and the host's quarters.

When the weather is warm, head down to the lake and gazebo for a swim or feel free to go out in the canoe. Although Loon Lake qualifies more as a swimming hole than a weed-free sandy beach, the water is spring fed and beautiful. Many guests love swimming here. Otherwise, one of the nicest public beaches in the Hayward area is within 1/2 mile. Beaver Lake Town Beach has a sandy beach, boat launch, picnic area and playground.

Guests are welcome to use the campfire ring down by the Gazebo. There is also access to a charcoal grill. Please ask beforehand to be sure there are no burning restrictions and so I can give you direction. Firewood and charcoal are not provided but there’s an excellent place 5 minutes away that sells campfire wood. Message me for details if you’re interested.

Any time you encounter others during your stay, please observe social distancing of at least 6’.

Other things to note
It’s important to note that Loon Lake is near an active railroad line. Guests frequently mention this adds to the ambience of staying here but if you aren’t one who appreciates the sound of the lonesome whistle blowing, this probably isn’t the best lodging choice.

This bedroom was designed with the idea that it’s great to wake up with the sun. For those who need a greater level of darkness in order to sleep well, I would suggest booking the Upstairs Suite or using a sleeping mask.

A light tidying up is all that’s required at check-out. NOTE: If you’d like to extend your stay beyond 10am please make that arrangement in advance by contacting me on the Airbnb Message Center.

Location

Hayward, Wisconsin, United States

Loon Lake Guesthouse is located just 8 miles from downtown Hayward and 25 minutes from Spooner.

For your health and the health of others who are staying here, please read the Covid Requirements in your booking settings that relate to coming and going during the pandemic. Found here:
>Booking Settings >House Rules >Additional Rules

The Namekagon (nam ah cog in) River, designated a National Scenic Wild River by the U.S. Park Service, is truly a local treasure and less that a mile away. It’s known for trout, canoeing, tubing and kayaking in the warmer months. In winter try to make your way to a canoe landing and witness how breathtakingly beautiful it is when surrounded by snow and ice.

In addition to Loon Lake, where guests are welcome to use the canoe or swim (a bit weedy for some), Beaver Lake Town Beach is 1/2 a mile away with a great sandy, family friendly swimming beach.

There’s also a couple of beautiful walking loops right out the driveway. One is about 45 minutes and the other about 25 minutes from the house. Message me for details.

Loon Lake is 15 minutes from Hatchery Park and 25 minutes from the 'Hwy OO' trailhead of the American Birkebeiner cross-country ski and hiking trails.

The TONY WISE MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN BIRKEBEINER is located in downtown Hayward. It honors my father who — in addition to many other remarkable achievements — is the founder of the Birkie. It cleverly charts the extraordinary 45+ year history of this iconic, world-renowned, cross country ski marathon using state-of-the-art hands-on exhibits including a 3D model of the trail, electronic race scrapbook, artifacts, photos, memorabilia and more. A must see for anyone who appreciates Nordic skiing and Hayward’s colorful history.

The area surrounding Hayward's Historic Main Street has many shops, galleries, a winery, post office, outdoor sporting shops, bakery and restaurants. A fun stop to while away an hour or an afternoon.

RESTAURANTS
For your health and the health of others who are staying here, please read the Covid Requirements in your booking settings that relate to coming and going during the pandemic. Unfortunately , dining in restaurants is temporarily not allowed when staying at Loon Lake Guesthouse. For more about that look under >Booking Settings >House Rules >Additional Rules. Takeout is available at many of these places but be sure to contact them well ahead of the dinner hour since they are more likely to be responsive when it's not busy.

I'm a lifelong resident of Hayward who loves playing around in the kitchen and gardens. My father, the late Tony Wise, is famous for having started the American Birkebeiner cross country ski race and the Lumberjack World Championships. So with deep roots and an abiding love of the northwoods, I thoroughly enjoy hosting and sharing my backyard with guests.
