Gritzie's Round Lake Retreat

Welcome to Gritzie's!
Enjoy the seasons
on the crystal clear 3,000 acre Round Lake near Hayward, Wisconsin, in this traditional lake side cabin hidden from the hustle of the main lake on quiet Filter’s Bay. Have the best of both worlds, the quiet sunsets from the deck 20 feet from the shore, or the adventure of the big lake. Paddle your canoe or kayak through the lily pads in this shallow no wake 50 acre bay watching for eagles, nesting loons, ospreys, otters, and great blue herons. Let the children catch sunfish from the dock, snorkel over the weed beds watching for bass and northern, or just relax next to the lake while watching cedar wax wings, blue birds, Indigo Buntings, Goldfinches, Hummingbirds, and many other that call the north woods home come to the bird feeders.

KitchenIn the evening,
enjoy a steak on the deck and relax next to the water at the fire pit. Boat thru the cut to the big lake and you can fish for Musky, Northern Pike, Small mouth Bass, Walleye, or pan fish. If needed, hire a local guide to help unlock the secrets of this deep clear lake. Ski over the clean sky blue water, or swim at the sandbar just outside of the bay. The Round Lake Marina offers jet skies, ski boats, pontoon boats, fishing boats for rent by the hour or day. At the north end of the lake, have a picnic or camp for the night on the state owned island.

The Cabin is private, with the closest neighboring cabin being more than 100 yards away. The lake shore is in its natural state, we do not mow, paths lead where you need, the rest is wild. There is one bedroom, a mud room, one bath (yes indoors), and a kitchen and a living area, where the futon and chair fold out for additional sleeping.
