Poynette cottage description

Warm days, cool nights and gorgeous views on Lake Wisconsin! Bike, hike, boat, fish, orchards, wineries, apples, corn mazes, migrating birds....so much to do! And end the day at your own lakeside fire pit with a warm cider or other favorite drink in your hand! Autumn is wonderful on Lake Wisconsin!

Enjoy water, nature and quiet, yet near hiking, biking, wineries, Madison, orchards, and lots more! Perfect for a couple or small family. Level lakefront yard and beautiful views!

RELAX at your own lakefront cottage on Lake Wisconsin! Two BR/one BA decorated in cute cottage decor, with your own shady yard and pier. Boating or swimming off your private pier, enjoy the sun on your lakefront patio or stunning evening sunsets!

Perfect for Boomers, Greatest Generation, or Families with kids! Level lot and no stairs!

Ongoing improvements every year! Recent upgrades include new shower, water heater, bathroom and septic update, upgraded flooring in kitchen and bath, new screen doors, new roof, and fresh paint.

Lake Wisconsin Cottage provides cottage living in your own small, private vacation home with shady lakefront yard and pier. Nature, lake, and cultural activities are abundant. Conveniently located midway between Madison and Wisconsin Dells, just off Interstate 90/94, approximately 1.5 hrs from Milwaukee and 3 hours from Chicago or Minneapolis.

Recently redecorated in cottage decor, the inside has an open layout from full kitchen to dining room to living room. Eat your meals overlooking the lake after leisurely cooking in your fully equipped kitchen or on your private charcoal or gas grill. Plenty of cooking utensils and dishes. New flooring throughout.

Enjoy a quiet time in the cottage 'library nook', stocked with books, games, and magazines, or watch a movie on the DVD.

Relax outside on your private patio or in Adirondack chairs at the lakeside fire pit area, drink in hand watching the sun set over the glimmering water.

Lake Wisconsin Cottage is the perfect place for a couple to spend time away from a hot weather climate. Equally great for a small family to experience a 'summer place'. The cottage is located on a dead-end street in a small, friendly residential area. It's like having your own vacation home. The location is rural enough for quiet and relaxation, yet close enough for many cultural and fun day-trip activities.

Two bedrooms in bright sunny colors, each with a comfy queen bed and large windows to let plenty of light in. One bath, recently updated with new shower and toilet, plenty of towel bars and hooks, and new paint and flooring. New water heater for those good hot showers.

SUMMER: Our peak season. Enjoy shallow, sandy-bottom swimming off your private pier, play games in the shady yard, or bring/rent a boat to waterski and explore the lake. Canoe, kayak, or fish to your heart's content right outside your door. Or just enjoy a fabulous sunset over the Baraboo Bluffs and light a fire in your private firepit at lakeside.

FALL/SPRING: Migrating birds and wildflowers galore, Fall colors, apple orchards, and pumpkin patches are some of the nearby attractions. Hiking and biking are the best. Area attractions are not crowded. The views are stunning at all times of year!



Keywords: Lake house, cottage, vacation home at water's edge, quiet, beautiful views, wooded, nature & wildlife, close to attractions.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: We fell in love with Lake Wisconsin and the lakefront neighborhood years ago. We enjoy the Lake, the fantastic views, area hiking, wineries, and cheese stores, and the close proximity to many nearby activities. We welcome you to experience Lake Wisconsin Cottage!

                  Why the Owner Chose Poynette:
                  A very friendly and safe, small neighborhood on a large bay opening into the main lake. Lots of nature and fantastic views, but close to many daytrip activities and cultural areas. Enjoy the large shady yard, sitting on the pier, and watching the birds in the woods behind the cottage. The sunsets are the best! Love watching the sun move across the Baraboo Bluffs throughout the year! Free boat launch within 1/2 mile.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Recently updated, the cottage is large enough to comfortably fit a family of four, and small enough to feel intimate and private for a couple or single.
