GRAND ESCAPE – Escape to First-Class Lodging, White Sand Beaches, and Picturesque Sunsets
Spacious Accommodations, Tranquil Setting, and Family-Friendly Atmosphere

Our rustically elegant Grand Escape represents an unforgettable vacation opportunity to the therapeutic woods and waters of northern Wisconsin.  

This breathtaking 5,600 square feet custom built lake home, tastefully equipped with log accents, is peacefully nestled on the white sandy beaches of a quiet Hayward area lake.  Located only 10 minutes from Hayward, WI, this expansive 5 bedroom, 4 bath northwoods gem offers you the ultimate in a northwoods vacation rental experience. 

Meticulously crafted with quality custom cabinetry, terra cotta tile, granite countertops, and maple millwork, this unique property also boasts top-of-the-line fixtures and appliances along with a master suite of epic proportions.  Relax in the massive lakeside master suite with a unique separate sitting area equipped sky lights, fireplace, T.V., walk-in closet, private bathroom, large steam shower, whirlpool tub, and deck.

Grand Escape also features a lakeside kitchen that even the most discriminating chef’s will appreciate.  High-end appliances and cooking utensils abound - there is also a convenient walk-in pantry, and wet-bar. 

This one-of-a-kind property is located on the crystal clear, white-sandy beach shores of Durphee Lake.   Guests are able to enjoy excellent fishing and swimming on this pristine lake.  Durphee Lake is connected to nearby Schoolhouse Lake; these lakes are amazingly peaceful, remarkably clear, and offer picturesque sunsets along with frequent wildlife sightings.

Our Grand Escape private vacation home rental is nestled on over 2.5 private and very wooded acres in a quiet neighborhood and offers over 215’ of white sand beach and level frontage along with a lakeside firepit.  The western exposure provides for breathtaking sunsets from the large lakeside decking, vaulted living room with an authentic stone wood fireplace, or master suite.  There is also a large four-season porch, a very extensive and fully-equipped exercise room, spacious family room, private office, and a plethora of books, movies, and games.

Children are sure to enjoy the elaborate outdoor Rainbow play system that includes a pea gravel floor and perimeter fencing to ensure safety.   This unique lakeside Hayward home is well-equipped with a large Pier Pleasures aluminum dock (with swimming ladder). 

Our Grand Escape is truly a lakeside paradise that exudes rustic elegance throughout every square foot of the property. 

Nearby, guests can enjoy a wide variety of snowmobile, ATV, bike, and cross-country ski trails that the Hayward Lakes area has to offer.  One does not need to trek far to be linked into literally hundreds of miles of trails delicately woven through the wilderness.

Well-deserved time spent at our Grand Escape offers you a relaxing, rustic, yet somewhat modernized vacation experience the entire family will enjoy.

Let your next great escape begin here. From fishing to friends, dining to shopping, and mountain biking to pontooning, freedom and fun awaits in the Hayward lakes area - it’s time to secure your next adventure and escape to cabin country! ...

We have stayed at several 5-Star properties for over 10 years all over the U.S. Our
vacation to the Grand Escape has significantly exceeded our expectations. Grand Escape is so much more than a vacation property - it feels like home. We could live here! I was up last night looking out at the lake enjoying all of the breathtaking views, smells, doing laundry and I have NEVER felt so comfortable being away from home! This experience has been so perfect for their family - we absolutely adore the lake. Today, the guys went out to a nearby big lake and went fishing, and the ladies and kids hung out, relaxed, went into Hayward, went horseback riding, mini-golfed, visited the art gallery, and enjoyed the Lumberjack show. This has been more than Perfect!
Hi Mary. We are so happy with your place. Not many times in our long life have we been so delighted and beyond our expectations as we are with everything here. We can appreciate all you have done as we have built a couple modest cabins over the years but this is spectacular!
Thank you for sharing this beautiful, spacious cabin. We made some very special family memories here and look forward to the opportunity of coming back to this cabin and amazing, warm, clean lake! The Johnson Reunion - NE, IA, MN, CA, IL
Thanks for a wonderful vacation. EVERYTHING was perfect!!! It was our piece of heaven.
Our vacation escape to Durphee Lake was wonderful. The weather was perfect and this home is so comfortable and spacious. We made memories we will cherish for years to come. We will be back to make more! Four sisters and their families from MN, WI, and a student from France.
It is so quiet here and we loved to just sit and enjoy the lake, breathtaking sunsets and sunrises. Your home is beautiful and so well equipped. We lacked for nothing, especially in the gourmet kitchen! Thanks for letting us come and enjoy your wonderful home.
