Property description

If you're planning to rent a vacation home in a Southern Wisconsin lake community, then Lake Geneva is the place for you. The second deepest lake in the state, Lake Geneva is nine miles in length and three miles at its widest point. Lake Geneva is well-known for its crystal clear water and gorgeous beaches so don't hesitate to plan a Wisconsin trip during the year's hotter months!

Our house is located in the on the south shore of Lake Geneva and is a five minute drive southwest of downtown Lake Geneva and a five minute drive southeast from downtown Fontana. The house was completely rehabed in 2006-08 and can be accessed via keyless entry so no pick up of keys or drop offs are invloved. The home comes completely furnished with Flat Screen TV's, Cable and Wifi. 100's of VHS and DVD movies, Gas/Charcoal Grills, many board games. For the outdoorsy types, there is a new hammock to lay outside, custom fire pit, bag/cornhole games, swimming noodles, life preservers and basically anything you could think of to enjoy your stay inside or outside and have a great time. The home is part of a cozy, quiet community filled with mature trees, so it's not uncommon to see one of the many local wildlife of deers, owls, falcons, turkeys, and other wild song birds in our yard.

A two-story cedar-shingled exterior Art & Craft home and a five year old completely remodeled interior features a new kitchen with stainless appliances and granite counters, a stone boulder fireplace, stone baths, a sun room with slate floor, cherry bead board and timber loft ceilings. There is AC, ceiling fans and wood floors and trim throughout. The home includes antique and vintage furnishings and decorations. You are 1/4 mile walk from lake access at Linn Pier which offers a boat launch and fishing from the dock. This home provides comfortable, lodge style hospitality to families and their pets! Perfect for family gatherings or a peaceful retreat.

“The Pier” is a well known country store and bait shop only four houses away where you can conveniently pick up anything you forgot to pack! Weekend vacationers can call 'The Pier' at (262) 348-9400 to speak with the owner John by Thursday morning to have custom meat and liquor orders available for your pickup on Friday for the weekend.

The downtown of Lake Geneva, Fontana and Williams Bay offer shopping, movie theaters, a variety of restaurants and public beaches and piers. Local activities include fishing, swimming, sailing, parasailing (rental boats, canoes, kayaks and paddle boats are available at local piers), boat and dinner cruise lake tours, spas, an indoor water park at Grand Geneva Resort, skiing at Geneva National, Alpine, and Wilmot, golfing at Geneva National, Abbey Springs and 10 other courses within a 15 minute drive, antique shops and malls, free wine tasting at Pop More Corks, horse shows and riding, a corn maze, farms offering fresh produce and picking in season, a full gaming casino 45 minutes away, and many area shows, fairs and other special events scheduled year-round.

Relaxing in peaceful surroundings or enjoying all that the area has to offer, you will find our house in Lake Geneva to be the perfect place for you and your family and friends to make long lasting memories.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My family and I grew up vacationing in Northern Illinois and Wisconsin, but over time as resorts closed we found it incredibly difficult to find a place where the family could get together and bring our pets. Ever since we visited Lake Geneva 20 years ago, we've been going back to vacation as often as we can. As our family grew, we also found Lake Geneva to be the perfect place to take the kids. They couldn't get enough of the lake and all the fun area activities. They were amazed the first time we took them horse back riding and skiing on the lake - they said, 'Cool, it's like having our very own gigantic playground!' There was no question we had to invest in our own 'Near the Lake Home', and we’re confident you’ll enjoy the area as much as we have.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's the perfect destination and distance to travel from Chicago. After leaving after rush hour and pulling in the driveway 1 1/2 hours later we are always able to make the Friday night fish Fry with plenty of time to spare. The house, located on the wooded south shore, is ideal for relaxing and watching nature or if the need arises for some day or night fun - you are only five minutes from downtown Lake Geneva or Fontana. It offers the best of both worlds; peace and quiet at home and with many activities and nightlife nearby.
