Montello house description

Like new, well kept 2,400 sq ft, 3 bedroom home is located on the Fox River where you can swim, water ski, fish, have campfires and relax. There are 3 bedrooms on the main floor along with the large kitchen and dining room. The upstairs is one large living room (30ft x 20ft) with a new big screen TV, VCR/DVD player and satellite tv with comfortable seating for at least 8 people. There's plenty of room for air mattresses and tables to do crafts and plenty of windows for natural light. We added a new rec room in the basement along with another full bathroom. The basement has a set of bunk beds and a pull-out sleeper sofa, brand new ping-pong table, tv and a huge chalkboard for the kids. The basement has a patio door for great natural light and spectacular view of the river. We just expanded the deck and put in a new patio with a built-in fire pit.

It is common to see cranes and bald eagles here. If you like to hunt there is public hunting land nearby or you can go duck hunting on site. There are hiking trails and natural areas for bird watching throughout Marquette County. We are also on one of the many bike routes in the area.
The rental includes your own private area on the river and we just purchased a new, larger pier for fishing or to dock your boat. There is also a picnic table, chairs and firepit. We have an indoor crate and an outdoor, covered dog kennel for your pet. For the kids there is a play area with sandbox, swings, slide and treehouse, basketball hoop and other outdoor games to use. We also have a selection of inside games, puzzles, legos and movies to watch.
We are between Montello and the Princeton/Green Lake area where there are plenty of antique and speciality shops and the largest flea market in the state. Come enjoy a relaxing week or weekend in the country.

                                We really enjoyed this rental for our large group. The house was very clean and the layout was just what we needed. The views of the river were fantastic and we watched a Bald Eagle circle for several minutes. We would definately stay here again.

                                We arrived Friday night for girls' weekend on the lake. The house was very clean and the view was beautiful all around. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessities (except for a cheese grater.... :)...) and the house is very spacious and comfortable. The owners were super friendly, brought us firewood, and were generally very accommodating and helpful. We had a great time and would recommend this place to others looking for a place away from the city, quiet surroundings, and relaxation! The internet connection is indeed slow, but that wasn't a huge deal for us.

                                Owner response: Thanks - we will be getting a cheese grater for the kitchen:)

                                My whole family and I stayed here for a long weekend vacation (10 of us). We over all had a great time, the weather was beautiful and the house was more than satisfactory to hold all of us. When we got there it was very clean, and there weren't many rules to follow with what needed to be done in the house. The owners were very easy to get ahold of a came/called back almost immediately after they were called. They are also pet friendly and had a kennel in the house for our use. The internet was slow at best, if our phones even connected to it, but this was stated to us when we got there. The boat launches (both of them) were definitely not very safe to take your boats in and out of the water. They did let us use theirs which was a little better but not much. We also brought 2 of our dogs along which was a great feature, but the owners let their dogs run around all day which was not conducive to our dog situation. This was later taken care of but the situation was very uneasy at best. Also the access to the water was not an easy walk. There was a tiny little path from both the top of the hill and the back yard to get down to the water, and when I say little I mean my 5lbs dog didn't even want to use it. There was a gravel road that gave immediate access but was very steep and hard for our little ones to walk on without falling. We cooked all of our meals here with the stocked kitchen and two charcoal grills. We went to the Princeton flea market which was very busy and lots of fun. The nearest beach was 25 minutes away on Green Lake which was nice for the kids. Overall, Steve was a very nice guy and very accommodating, but if you want easy water and beach access this is not the place to stay. While it was a large and very nice house with many amenities it lacked in things to do for kids.

                                Owner response: That was indeed the "dog path" and we encourage people to use the driveway to get down to the water. You can drive your vehicle all the way down to the waterfront area. We are considering purchasing a golf cart for the renters to use also. We do not let our dogs run around all day. Unfortunately our dogs got out of their kennel when we were gone one day. If we had known they got out, we would have called someone to put them inside. If our dogs are outside, one of the owners are outside with them at all times.

                                My husband and I were there a year ago in the winter for snowmobiling. We both were taken by the huge beautiful clean house (cabin) and equipped with EVERYTHING you need. We did not know of the area very well so the owners took us on a 4 hour tour on our sleds. We were so thankful of there time and had amazing time with them. We were there the wk of the 4th with family and friends and everyone who was up said it was there BEST 4th EVER! I would like to say dana and steve lexi there daughter made our stay relaxing,fun and entertaining. Never had to bother them for anything needed or wrong with the place. Thanks for there hospitality and fun they contributed to my family and letting me bring my dog. I WANNA GO BACK SOON! You will not be disappointed in your stay honestly..

                                Family and friends rented this place last year for the weekend. Great location on the Fox River. Home is very clean and spacious. Definitely would recommend.

                                Second visit here with scrapbooking friends was just as great as the first time we came here. This time more women wanted to come so there were ten of us. Kitchen is to die for. We may have eaten more than we scrapped. Cooked on charcol grill outside, took walks to take in fall colors, and watched DVDs on large screen TV in huge room on top floor which is where we set up to scrap. Owners are very accommodating and friendly. Their two dogs are wonderful as well! We're just wondering how soon we can arrange to come here again. When ten women (with families) make an effort to coordinate another visit, you can be sure it is a wonderful place!

                                Recommended for: Tourists without a car, girls getaway, pet owners, age 55+, adventure seekers, families with young children.

                                Three couples stayed at this house in July, 2012. The property was immaculate and exactly as the description stated. We had a very relaxing, fun time and would definitely recommend this property to anyone. The owners, Steve and Dana, were friendly and very attentive to our needs. We will be back for sure.
