Hayward/Minong Area - An Artist's Shangri-Lodge on Minong Flowage

Bedrooms 4
Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom cabin with 2 gathering spaces with lake views

We're pleased to announce a Fall Special. 2 days (including weekends) for $499 plus tax and VRBO fee.

This tasteful, artist-owned, quality Cedar 'Chalet' on the Minong Flowage has a Northwoods theme that fits perfectly with this Canadian wilderness-feeling lake. The interior is warm and inviting and very comfortably decorated.

The stunning vaulted & beamed great room with a floor to ceiling wood burning fireplace opens with a window-filled wall to a large upper level lakeside deck equipped with comfortable patio/lawn furniture and a gas grill. Wildlife prints and paintings by the owner can be seen throughout the home. No matter where you find yourself there are plenty of places to gather with friends and family or just to relax by yourself. Equipped with washing machine, dryer, dishwasher and flat screen TV's. 8 miles west of Minong, Wisconsin; 30 miles west of Hayward, Wisconsin.

The Master Bedroom in the loft, has a flat screen TV and a bathroom with shower. A second bedroom with a queen bed is located on the main level. Directly across the hallway there is a third bedroom with bunk beds and a full bath with a fourth bedroom and bathroom on the lower level. Experience book lover bliss in the readers chair and ottoman in the loft overlooking pines and the lake. In the spacious Great Room you can curl up next to the Fieldstone Fireplace to unwind, or play one of the dozens of games that can be found or simply catch a game or favorite show on the flat screen TV. The lower level of the lake home has an additional great room with a large sectional sofa, a 55' projection screen TV and stereo. Perfect for when the kids need their own space. Bring your favorite DVD movies, x-box and CD's or watch a DVD from our collection of over 100 movies to play on the surround sound stereo system.

The attractively landscaped yard features a stone pathway that winds it's way to a patio area and firepit overlooking the lake. We've placed a table on the dock for a great place to catch some sun.

If you need any supplies there is a great General Store located within 3 miles of the Lake Home. This store provides groceries, liquor, wine and beer, dvd rentals, fishing licenses and bait, gas, propane, and a full selection of hardware tools and supplies as well as a post office.

You won't find a more quiet or private place to relax, fish and just have fun. We are only 5 miles from Black Bear Golf course, an 18 hole, par 72, public course. There are many other golf courses within easy driving distance. You may also enjoy hiking or canoeing/tubing on 2 nearby rivers (Totagatic and Namekagon - the latter being a federally protected wilderness waterway). Perfect for a home-base for biking or golfing and a perfect place to gather with friends for scrap-booking. Daytrips to Hayward, Spooner, Duluth and the Apostle Islands are common diversions. You will be hard pressed to find a finer vacation home in the area. There is a non-smoking policy in the home for this rental.

Why Ken Edmondson chose Minong

The 'whispering' pines. Set in a stand of mature pines, on a beautiful bay, ShangriLodge is the definition of serenity.

What makes this chalet unique

Peaceful yet convenient to many amenities.

A Great Place To Plan A Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely property and home were all that we were hoping for. The house was clean, comfortable and welcoming. The owners were not present upon arrival but there was a

welcoming message along with a goody bag to enjoy during our stay. Although not the norm

when renting a house for vacation every bed was comfortable and you woke up feeling refreshed and ready to start the day. A day canoeing and fishing on Cranberry Lake met all

our expectations. The water was like glass and the fish plentiful. My two grandchildren were

in seventh heaven with all the fish they caught and the water level by the pier was clear and friendly enough for a five and seven year old to enjoy and keep them busy. Also there are many activities to enjoy in the surrounding areas. Dinner at the Ranch in Hayward was exceptional. My family and I are always looking for good supper clubs to eat at and dinner

at the Ranch in Hayward is at the top of our list. The food and service rendered were excellent. I would highly recommend this fine eating establishment while spending time

in the area. The only complaint that I may have concerning this rental is that the time spent was way too short. None of us wanted to leave! Would I rent this property again? In a heart beat! So if one is looking for comfort, the amenities of home along with the beauty and seclusion of the north woods....this is the place to consider. A heart felt thanks to Ken and his lovely wife for a wonderful vacation.

Family cabin retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week at this lake home. It was like staying at a friend's cabin! Everything you need is there...just bring food and clothes! Literally. Everything! The owners were beyond friendly and accommodating, even with tips on baby proofing the cabin! The family room downstairs was great for a movie night for the little kids while the parents were right out the doors at the campfire. The dock area was great for wading and swimming, with a table area by the water that we turned into our play and sand area. The deck was so relaxing with comfy patio seating...lots of cookouts and drinks!! There's 2 bedrooms on the main level-one with bunk beds that's filled with toys, so that was our official toy room! We had 4 little ones from 9mo to 5 years old, and everyone was very occupied! Lots of water and sand toys provided outside too. We spent a couple days at sand island, one day at the county park beach, and other days playing at the cabin with kayaks and paddle boats. There isn't much for parking, but we made 2 trucks, 2 boat trailers, and an SUV all fit in front. We really felt at home and comfortable here. There isn't a laundry list of rules like other places. The owner was really easy to contact through texts while we were there, and notes like "help yourself to anything" was refreshing and we appreciated the trust! Thanks again!!

Everything you need in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Shangri-Lodge is a fantastic cabin in a great northwoods setting. Our family enjoyed all the amenities and our grandchildren loved their room with all the games and the stuffed animals. You don't need to bring anything, the cabin has it all. The Minong Flowage is a beautiful place and Shangri-lodge is a great place to enjoy it. Ken contacted us on the day we arrived and made sure everything was going well. If the weather turns bad or you just want to stay inside the cabin has plenty of games, books, DVD's, TV etc to keep you occupied. I recommend Shangri-lodge for the perfect northwoods getaway.

Best of times.

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is WOW. I went to Shangri Lodge with 7 of my friends and we all had such a great time. We were welcomed to the home with cookies, s'mores, and a bowl full of all the information you need. The place is beautiful and has everything you will ever need for a vacation on the lake. We brought up 2 boats and caught lots of fish. I have to give credit to the owner as he was more than happy to answer every question I had in a timely manner, was extremely friendly, and wanted to do his all to make sure we had the best time at his place. I would recommend this place to everyone who needs a weekend getaway to a lake. Thanks for everything!
