Hartford house description

This two story 1300 square foot house is the ideal vacation get-away!

Enjoy memorable mornings as the sun rises across the lake over the hills of Pike Lake State Park. You have 43 feet of lakefront to swim and play! Pike Lake is perfect for water skiing, wake-boarding, tubing, or a leisurely cruise around the lake. Bring your own boat or rent a pontoon just down the shoreline. Spacious yard between lake and home provides plenty of room for picnicking and entertaining!

Pike Lake is on State Highway 60 between Hartford and Slinger, Wisconsin. It is about 25 miles north of Milwaukee, 60 miles east of Madison, 40 miles south of Fond du Lac, and just over 2 hours north of Chicago! Located just on the outskirts of the City of Hartford, you're just minutes away from all of the amenities of city living. Grocery stores, churches, Holy Hill, post office, department stores, restaurants, bars, movie theater, golf courses, and, of course, the beautiful and scenic Holy Hill area just 10 minutes away!

The Pike Lake Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest is named after the 446-acre, spring-fed kettle: Pike Lake. Powder Hill, a large glacial kame, provides the opportunity for a great hike and view. Visitors can enjoy camping, swimming, hiking, fishing, picnicking, and much more within the forest.

Boating and Fishing
Pike Lake provides a great place for boating and fishing for the entire family. There is not a boat launch within the state forest boundaries. However, there are one public and two private landings across the lake from the state forest.

Pike Lake was named for its excellent walleye pike fishing, but there are also several other types of game fish found in the lake. Anglers can either fish from boats or from shore, outside the marked swimming area (tall white buoys).

                              Year Purchased: 1999

                              About the owner: As a father of three children, 18, 17, & 15, my hands are full most of the time. But I do put them to work helping me out at the lake with both outdoor and indoor duties. In exchange for their services, I make sure to keep plenty of gasoline in the boat and waverunner. And with the current cost of gas, I think my kids are getting the better end of the deal. I've updated the picture here, so those of you following along can now see that Lisa & I are happily married as of August 19, 2011. Life is good! We take great care & pride in keeping the house clean and up to standards which we would expect if we were to rent this house. Her 20+ years in the hotel industry as a General Manager assures you of that. I'm confident you'll feel the same way once you check in.

                              Why the Owner Chose Hartford:
                              Due to a change in famly dynamics some years ago, I ended up with this house. It was in dire need of repair and renovation, and I simply couldn't in good conscience let it go for sale. And I figured at the time, 'They don't build lakes.' so I re-habbed it and decided to begin renting it out after family members came back raving about their stays out here. It's such a beautiful sight to see the sun come up over the State Park across the lake with the sun shimmering off the waves. Looks just like the postcards you always see.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              This rental provides you with your own private yard & private pier. One side of the dock is available should you decide to bring your own boat, or rent one from down the shoreline. Wireless Internet access is also available should you decide that you absolutely can't enjoy the peace and quiet and MUST be tethered to the 'real world.' (Trust me, it's not easy to disconnect, but worth it!) 5 minutes from the local grocery store, State Park across the lake, full kitchen with utensils, charcoal grill outside.
