About the Area

Hayward, Wisconsin lake properties have been some of the most sought after in this northwestern part of the state for many years.  With a rich history of classic resorts and sprawling lodges, which drew the rich and famous - along with the  infamous - to the area lakes throughout the decades, Hayward has long been a favorite destination for many.

Originally developed as a logging camp because of its rich pine forests, Hayward attracted its early inhabitants in the latter 1,800s.  But once the forests began to diminish in the 1,920s, tourism grabbed hold of the area and never let go.  With a vast array of high quality lakes, abundant fishing, and plenty of uninhabited lakeshore, those who visited here began to buy up some of the best lakefront properties available to build their own private getaways.  And many of those still stand today frozen in time.

Some of the early visitors realized that the dense forests and highly remote real estate parcels provided more than just beauty.  A few of them, from places like Chicago, found special uses as hideouts in these far reaches of Northwestern Wisconsin.  And stories of well-known gangsters from long ago, spending their afternoons catching muskies on area lakes, still add to the character of the region.

Today, the lakes around Hayward, Couderay, Stone Lake, Winter and Seeley have less gangsters, but many more lake home and cabin owners than in the past.  With some of the largest water bodies in Wisconsin, the area has become similar to Brainerd, Minnesota in its appeal to the wealthy.  And the magnificent lake homes and stunning log structures that rest along the shores of these lakes are a testament to the value of the most prime lakeshore parcels around here.       

But the Hayward Area isn't just an exclusive getaway for the well-heeled.  There are plenty of seasonal lake cabin owners in the area, along with a strong year-round population of residents, who inhabit thousands of waterfront parcels in a wide variety of price ranges, and on lakes of all sizes in the region.   Whether they are drawn by the excellent fishing, supurb snowmobiling, resort-like atmosphere, or just the incredible scenic small-town appeal, there is no shortage of activity to keep Hayward and the surrounding communities busy throughout all seasons.
