Sunset on the Bay is a 3 bedroom vacation rental on Nelson Lake only minutes from Hayward, Wisconsin. With a beautiful westerly lake view of one of the Hayward, Wisconsin Area's most popular lakes, this comfortable vacation home lives up to its name!

A terraced landscaping and wooded setting welcomes you upon arrival. The single story home sits naturally at the top of a gentle hill tucked into a quiet bay overlooking Nelson Lake. The layout of the home with all its modern amenities allow plenty of opportunities to soak up this Northwood's view while staying connected with the outside world (or not). The grassy lakeside yard has a campfire ring with a natural scenic vista of a largely undeveloped shoreline. There is also a deck, screened in porch and private dock from which to take in the picturesque Northwood's lake scene, too.

Inside you'll find a comfortable 3 bedroom, 2 bath vacation home with an open living room, kitchen and dining area. The sliding patio doors in the living room frame the lake view as well as open onto the lakeside deck. There is a wood burning stove to keep you cozy as well as Satellite TV, DVD player and DSL Internet to keep you connected.

The kitchen with all the essentials has an electric stove, oven, full size refrigerator/freezer, coffeemaker, toaster and microwave. There is a dining room table and kitchen island with stools offering plenty of counter space for meal preparation and enjoyment.

There is a carpeted bedroom off the living room with a log framed full bed. A second bedroom also has a full sized bed while the third bedroom enjoys a beautiful view of the lake with a queen sized bed and full bath. All three of the bedrooms have ceiling fans and there is a sofa sleeper futon in the living room.



Nelson Lake is 2,500 acres in size with a maximum depth of 33 feet, 31 miles of shoreline and 16 islands. Long a favorite of Hayward, Wisconsin fishermen, Nelson Lake has 4 public landings and is a destination for year round water enthusiasts looking to fish, kayak, canoe or pontoon a beautiful Northern Wisconsin lake.

    a guest from Sparta, WI recommends this vacation rental

    We truly enjoyed our stay at Sunset Bay. Our family enjoyed the fishing on Nelson Lake and caught enough fish to have a fish fry on our last night. The cabin was clean and we appreciated the side porch to keep our chairs, floaties, etc. There was plenty of room for trailers and parking, which was great! Kari from the property management was outstanding! The only complaint was that the week went by too fast!

    • Manager Responded on 8/13/2021

      Thank you for sharing this experience. I am glad you and your family were able to enjoy a fish fry! Elizabeth RRP

    Leanne P from Morton Grove, IL recommends this vacation rental

    My husband and I stayed here for a second time. It’s a great location, just far enough away from Hayward that you feel like you’re away, but close enough that you can still access services with driving too far. The fishing was good, lots of pan fish (blue Gill and crappie) and large mouth bass. This section of Nelson Lake is away from the resorts, so it’s very peaceful. The interior of the house was clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils, pots and pans. A few cooler nights we used the baseboard heaters and it was nice and cozy for sleeping. There were some small items on the exterior (patio door handle, plastic on screened porch windows, etc.) that should have been taken care of, but nothing major. Overall a great spot for a week Up North.

    Great fun in below zero weather! XC Skiing on Birkie trail was awesome for classic style but tough for skate-skiing. When the mercury really dipped snowshoeing was the way to go. Sunset over Nelson Lake beautiful & fires in the woodstove very nice. Would be good if the owner tightens up the seal on woodstove door though it doesn’t burn so much wood since you must provide your own firewood.

    My husband, daughter and I spent a week here in August. The property is very clean and well maintained and provided everything we needed for relaxing retreat from the outside world. The property description is spot on. It's location on Nelson Lake is beautiful and provides great lake access. This was our first stay on Nelson Lake and this section of the lake was especially quiet. It's far enough from Hayward to feel like an escape, but still close enough to access groceries, bait shop, etc. without having to drive too far. We rented a pontoon boat and the fishing was good. My daughter landed a really nice large mouth bass and we all caught some nice pan fish. We took a day trip up to Lake Superior (about 1.5 hours drive) for some Kayaking near the Apostle Islands. We will definitely stay here again. Everything went smoothly with the management company. We had some questions about the property prior to renting and found them to be very responsive.

    a guest from Shoreview, MN recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great experience. The cabin is larger than the pictures make it look. Would have preferred a better beach-front to swim, but that did not take away from the great property and location. Great crappie fishing just outside the bay the home is located on. Deck is a great place for watching sunsets and cooking. I would/will go back again.

    Tom F from Green Bay, Wisconsin recommends this vacation rental

    Love this place and hope to stay here again some time. It's convenient to town. Is located in a very quiet area of the lake. Property is for the most part, very well kept and equipped. Only negative is that the patio screen was off the rails and we weren't able to fix it. Had to put it in place and use the door through the screen room to access the deck. But other than that, the place was perfect.

    The home was very clean on our arrival. I was impressed that two of the bedrooms had walk-in closets.The two bathrooms were roomy. Overall we had a good stay on a very nice area of the lake.
    I would suggest that the owner invest in nicer, sturdier outdoor furniture and chairs.

    Overall it was an excellent stay. Property is in a great location and in good condition. The refrigerator doesn’t work all that great and there is one loose board right off the deck heading to the dock that needs attention before someone falls. Otherwise it was a great week.

    Laura D from Milwaukee, WI recommends this vacation rental

    We were texted regarding a pontoon/kayak week long rental and we were interested in this so my sister returned the text message the same day. There was not any reply to our message. Also, we were unable to keep the glass sliding door open which led to the nice deck outside because the screen door was not securely attached. Other than that, we were satisfied with the rental.
