Whitewater house description

Nestled in the hardwood forests of The Kettle Moraine State Park our lake home is the perfect place to unwind with family and friends and create lasting memories in the stunning beauty of our quiet little lake. Located on over one half acre of flat land, a beautiful gently sloping sand bottom beach and postcard views from our enormous water-front deck, you have stumbled upon one of the best kept secrets in Southern Wisconsin. Rice Lake (Lower Whitewater) is blessed with over 75% of untouched State Park shoreline. Whether you are sipping your morning coffee as you watch the sunrise over the lake, having dinner on our deck or lakeside screened-in porch, playing with the kids on the beach or fishing for our trophy large-mouth bass from the bench at the end of our pier all you gaze upon is the majesty of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Rice Lake boasts only 39 homes residing on its shoreline which makes it the most ideal lake within 100 miles of Chicago, Rockford, Milwaukee or Madison for 100% pure relaxation. All boating and watercraft are welcome on our lake but we typically see very little boat traffic and many times you will feel as though the lake only exists for you.

Our home is located in the middle of a small bay which offers additional protection for all beach activities. The lake itself is incredibly clean and is listed as one of the cleanest and healthiest lakes in Wisconsin by the Department of Natural Resources. The lake has several islands including one that harbor's a small cottage. You will also find Kettle Moraine hiking and biking trails within walking distance of our home. Some of the best mountain biking trails in the midwest are less than a 10 minute drive away. Tons of nearby antique shops, "Mom and Pop" restaurants and taverns, farmers markets, fantastic golf courses, excellent fishing from our pier and a pure hand-dug continuously flowing artesian spring within walking distance that you can use to collect ice cold crystal clear water for those hot summer days.

Rice Lake is truly a hidden gem among the hustle and bustle of many of the surrounding summer hot spots. You are less than 25 minutes from Delavan, Elkhorn, Lake Geneva and Janesville but you will feel like you are literally in the middle of nowhere (even though the town of Whitewater is a short 10 minute drive.) Peace and quiet is what brings people to our sandy shores and it will find a warm spot in your heart as well.

We have owned our home for 25 years and it has never been rented out. You will not feel as though you are in a sterile corporate owned house but a well maintained and cared for member of our family. This home has brought us more amazing and cherished memories than I can count and I know it will provide your family with the same.

Please email me with any questions you may have. I am more than happy to send you additional pictures of our home as well. I have also put together a detailed write-up on the history of Rice and Whitewater Lakes, a little more background about us and a list of our favorite nearby restaurants, bars, bike & ski shops, churches and golf courses... I am more than happy to pass that along as well.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!!
