Property description

Cascade and Devlishead, nearby ski resorts for skiing and tubing! 20% discount for mid-week rentals! Discount for couples!

Peaceful with GREAT VIEWS ACROSS THE WATER! Enjoy the beauty of nature on the Wisconsin River and Lake Wisconsin in this rustic, yet cozy river/lake cottage. Relax with friends or family in the hot tub after a day canoeing or kayaking around the sandy tree-covered islands. Watch crimson sunsets from your bed, from the 16'x 25' deck, or under a shady grove of oak and maple trees at water's edge. Whether it's the knotty pine walls of the livingroom and kitchen or the wooden twin-over-full bunk beds in the second bedroom you’ll always feel cozy and welcome at Quietwater Cottage. After skiing or a tough day relax in our outdoor sauna! You'll enjoy yourselves so much you'll be anxious to come for another visit!

Quietwater Cottage is conveniently located on the Lake Wisconsin waterfront midway between Madison and the Wisconsin Dells, just 1.5 hours from Milwaukee, 3 hours from downtown Chicago, and 2 hrs from Dubuque. This cottage is located next door to the Island View Hideaway and is operated by the same owners.

FALL & WINTER FUN! After the summer crowds leave you’ll find unique beauty and tranquility on the river. Tucked in among the surrounding bluffs and hillsides you’ll find gorgeous fall colors and dazzling winter scenery. Hundreds of wooded acres across the street are home to the Red Bellied Woodpecker, Wild Turkey, and White Tailed Deer, while the ever-changing river offers views of Sandhill Cranes, Bald Eagles, Beaver, and Muskrat. Scenic drives in all directions make interesting day trips more fun! Many nearby day-trip possibilities including the Wollensheim Winery, Wisconsin Dells, Devil's Lake State Park, Baraboo Circus World Museum, and so much more. Nearby ski hills include Cascade Mountain (15 min) and Devilshead Lodge (30 min).

SPRING, SUMMER, and FALL Adventures! Green trees, sunny sand-bars, and a lazy river await you. Tucked off the main channel the cottage has the best of both worlds…easy assess to the big water, a great view of the water and sunsets, but little boat traffic. Because of our waterfront location, the choice is yours, launch your boat and head left for Lake Wisconsin or go right for the Wisconsin River. You’ve got it all right here! You can spend an exciting day on the open water of the lake or a quiet day exploring the Dells-like bluffs and the nearby islands, coves, and backwaters in your canoe or kayak. The shallow water in front is perfect for kayaks and canoes.

Enjoy shallow water fishing from the pier or head out in a boat to hit several of the best local fishing spots all within 5 minutes of the cottage: The Narrows, Fockes Bluffs, and Camp Rest Park. Good fishing for Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, White Bass, Catfish, Largemouth, Crappie and more.

Though the cottage has a green lawn for yard games or for kids to run around in, just a block away is a park with playground equipment and wading beach, perfect for small children and dogs. Tennis and basketball courts are just a mile up the road. Bike riding opportunities on winding country roads in the area are fantastic. Up for a challenge? Circle Lake Wisconsin on your bike, it's about a 50 mile trip with a free ferryboat crossing as a highlight!

This two bedroom, one bathroom house has a small but efficient kitchen and an open layout. The kitchen is equipped with all you’ll need to prepare any meal you like…or grill out on waterside deck! Feeling lazy? Kick back and enjoy the 37” flat screen LCD HDTV or enjoy the hot tub which seats up to six people, so...relax, sip a drink, even surf the web, and watch the river go by!

Beautiful views out the large living room windows and across the 16’x25’ deck look onto green, sandy islands and the undeveloped distant shores of the Wisconsin River as it opens up into Lake Wisconsin.

So much to see and so much to do! Relaxing!
