Vacation at the LOONS LAIR...

This is it!!!

A private cottage located on a small quiet lake. The lake is Clear Lake which is located 12 miles east of Hayward. Clear Lake is considered part of the Tiger Cat chain of lakes although it is not physically connected to them.

The cottage sits on 200 feet of level shoreline with a clear view of the lake. The lake is only 30 feet from the front doors. And the front yard is level to the lake and dock.

Inside you will find 2 bedrooms, a fireplace, color TV w/VHS & DVD players, a Bose radio, a fully equipped kitchen and a phone. Outside there is a sandy swimming area, Weber grill, fire ring, picnic table, dock and swimming float. Included is a 14 foot aluminum fishing boat with oars (you supply the motor or rent locally). There is also a canoe for your use. Internet is available too.

Summer Fun...

Relax and enjoy the peacefulness of the lake. There is a no wake ordinance on the lake except between 11 am and 3 pm. So you are assured of quiet mornings and evenings. Many of the boats on the lake are powered only by electric motors. In fact, the lake is frequently undisturbed all day except for the calls of the loons.

For the past 3 years the loons have raised at least one youngster. Bring the binoculars to get the closest view! Other frequent visitors are ducks, herons, eagles, otters, muskrats, and hummingbirds.

The above picture was taken at the Lair in August.

Swimming is excellent even on windy days. The beach is sandy. The water is deep and clear, true to its name. Fish including muskies can be seen swimming under the dock. Two muskies longer than 40 inches were caught by Loon's Lair visitors last year. Bass and panfish are abundant.

Road biking and running are good right out the door. The CAMBA mountain bike trails are nearby as is the Mukwonago hiking trail in the Chequamegon National Forest and the Sawyer County (Birkebeiner) hiking Trail.

Other nearby lakes include the Tiger Cat flowage, Upper and Lower Twin, Round, Reed and Callahan. Public access to these lakes is within 3 miles. A map showing these launches is available at the cottage.

Take a day and canoe through the interconnecting lakes of the Tiger Cat flowage. It is a fascinating combination of lake and marshy streams. Don't forget the binoculars or sunscreen!

Maps of many of the canoeing and biking opportunities are available at the cottage.

Should it rain (and I must admit it sometimes does), there is an assortment of games and videos. Videos can also be rented in Hayward.

Winter at the Lair...

Skiers, snowmobilers and other winter enthusiasts!! The Hayward area is noted for good snow, great trails and thick ice. In early winter the otters help themselves to the abundant panfish and snack on the ice in front of the cottage.

Access to the Birkie Ski Trail is within 10 miles of the cottage at either the Fish Hatchery, Mosquito Brook or HWY 00. If you arrive after dark and just can't wait to hit the trails, night skiing is available at the Fish Hatchery or Hwy 00. Each location has a heated shelter.

The Mukwonago Ski Trail in the Chequamegon National Forest is equally close. Nearby in Cable, WI you will find The Rock Lake Ski Trails also in the Chequamegon National Forest.

500 miles of local snowmobile trails are well groomed and easily accessible from the cottage. A snowmobile map is available at the cottage.

The Lair features a "no snow" full refund policy for skiers, snowmobiliers and snowman builders. Book with out fear!

Evenings can be spent in front a fire in the cozy winterized cottage.

Early winter ice brings the otters close to the Lair.

Year Round

You will find a variety of restaurants in the area. There is a restaurant guide in the cottage. And the "white book" in the cottage has information about other experiences in the area.

I believe you will find the LOON'S LAIR to be a rewarding year round retreat.
