Our small family was looking for a cabin near Hayward for a quick vacation. We ended up at Wilderness Haven and really had a great time. John, the owner, was super friendly and helpful. The cabin was very cozy and had great 1940's ambience. All in all, it was really a memorable little trip that we thoroughly enjoyed.

My husband and I were looking for a quiet, natural setting to spend a week. We found it! We stayed in a small, one bedroom cabin. It has been very comfortable, has a nice deck facing the lake, a small kitchen and a very reasonable bathroom. The cabin rental also came with a pontoon boat. From the first night here... More

If you like panfish action this is the place. This is a nice quiet spot with several quaint clean cabins. John and Jerri will take care of your needs, always with a smile. Take some time to engage John in conversation. He has led quite a life and has many tales to tell. You will enjoy your stay. Curt and... More

When we first drove up to the Wilderness Haven, my first impression was "Oh Crud, what did I get up into". The grounds appear to be storage for stuff they are not sure what to do with. The cabins, well looked like cabins, but there was just alot of stuff laying around. Gerri met us and showed us our cabin.... More

We booked our stay at Wilderness Haven for the week of December 27-Jan 3, 2009. We stayed in the "Fish Shanty" cabin which was clean and decorated nicely, but had a very bad smell at times. We decided that we would try out dog sledding as we are a bit tight on money and thought a winter vacation would be... More

My husband and I have stayed at other places in Hayward, but keep coming back to the Wilderness Haven Resort. They even let us bring our well behaved dog! The cabins are clean and cozy. Everything you would need except bring towels. We've stayed there in the summer and fall. A boat comes with renting the cabin. Jon taught us... More
