Excellent experience for the whole family. The kids had a great time running around, and we all had a great time fishing. It's a great lake. John is a great help and makes you feel very welcome. He is helpful and prompt without getting in the way. My wife and I were able to relax with cold drinks on the... More

Just finished a trip from the UP of Michigan and was lucky enough to stumble across an opening at A Wilderness Haven in early July. John, the owner, welcomed us with excellent recommendations for nearby restaurants, attractions, and excellent fishing spots on the lake right across the street. John lets guests take any of his many kayaks out for free,... More

Drove 6 hours here to a get a taste of the wild and we got just that. Very beautiful place! Cabin was clean and roomy for my family and I. Lots to do around! Close shopping for anything we needed. Great fishing. Great mushroom picking. The owner John was very kind and helpful. Would definitely come back and recommend anyone... More

Our family has been coming here every summer for several years now. You can't find another resort that comes with the use of a pontoon for price. The fishing is GREAT and it is a very relaxing get- away. There are many fun day trip opportunities around the area to explore as well. John, the owner, is wonderful and a... More

It should be a red flag when a resort has availability at the height of summer! We were looking for a resort for a last minute summer getaway when we stumbled upon Wilderness Haven's websites. The pictures looked good. Reviews were mixed, but we figured we would give it a try. The cabins look great from the outside and the... More

My family has been visiting Wilderness Haven Resort for the last 15 years. Just outside of Hayward, you are nestled in a peaceful retreat, where you can make your vacation what you want it to be. Maybe you want to use one of the available pontoon boats to fish, or relax on the lake. You might want to take a... More

Our family stayed in the large cabin for a week. We left early, it was just not good. Cabin was very dusty and had spiderwebs all over. It smelled horribly musty, so bad we bought room deodorizers to try to get rid of the smell. Mouse poop along kitchen area and in toaster every morning. This was even after we... More

Rustic cabins nestled in a beautiful area just outside of Hayward, Wilderness Haven is the perfect "get away from it all" resort. Each cabin has a pontoon boat available which is a bonus. We shared a pontoon boat with another family which wasn't a problem, but if you are planning on spending most of your time on the lake, you... More

Conveniently located near Hayward. As you arrive at the resort, you are greeted with piles of debris. Cabins are rustic at best with their glory days long behind them. Toilet leaked, microwave did not work, gap in the door let in the abundant bug, beds are very small, wifi did not work. Fishing was great, but the pontoons were well... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A Wilderness Haven is close enough to town for convenience, but far enough away to enjoy wildlife. It is not uncommon to greet black bear, deer, bald eagles, foxes, or bobcat after running into town for milk and eggs! Fishing at Wilderness Haven is one of the main draws. It is amazing the quantity of fish and wonderful experinces Spring Lake provides. ... more   less
