Property description

Bookings available for Summer 2015!
Just the two of you? Perfect! Please inquire about a couple discount!
We are located just 2 hours from the Metro-Milwaukee area, 4 from Chicago and 5 hours from Minneapolis. Save the airfare and drive to the most beautiful lake setting in Wisconsin. Spencer Lake is a 70 acre lake with the clearest water around. This lake offers everything from having fun on your jet ski or motor boat (you can rent locally if you wish) to a quiet and relaxing paddle around in a canoe or kayak (we have a canoe and two kayaks included with the rental)

We created this home for YOU to enjoy so everything is included from luxury bed linens, a great sound system and large flatscreen TV, Directv, wireless internet, fully appointed beautiful kitchen, relaxing soaking tub in one bathroom and spa multi/head shower experience in another. The bedrooms are tucked away in private areas of the house and there are multiple sleeping areas throughout for extra guests to sleep comfortably.

Our property is listed with a 4 person occupancy. This is because there is private sleeping for 4 in 2 bedrooms. Other sleeping throughout the house would be appropriate for children, teens, young adults - those without the need for private sleeping. Our occupancy is based on the ages of our guests and if we feel our home and septic can handle your request. If you feel that your group would be a good fit for our home, please ask - we will consider all reasonable requests for a property such as ours. The property is totally perfect for couples, two couples or for smaller extended family groups, ie: Grandparents, their kids and a couple grandkids. Thank you for your consideration-it is our desire to keep the property in pristine condition for our guests.

Rate for the week of July 4: $3000 based on 4 adults.

Thank you for looking!

We have a canoe and two kayaks available with the property and can provide you with rental information for some local places who rent speed boats, pontoons and jet-skies by the day or by the week. Most provide delivery. There is a winding 300 foot raised boardwalk through a wooded area for easy access to the beautiful and crystal clear Spencer Lake. You can see the lake from the house even in the summer when the trees are full of leaves - it is a breath-taking view all seasons of the year as you can see from the pictures we have included. There is a creek along one side of the property for a fun to kayak down - the mouth of the creek is just to the left of our pier. Our lake front area is in a quiet and secluded part of the lake...a safe distance from where the motor boats go past so there is lots of room for safe swimming and raft floating all day long. We also have some blow-up rafts and noodles for you to use if you wish.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

Why the Owner Chose Waupaca:
I have spent time on this lake most summers for the past 45+ years! It is a great place to relax with a loved one, re-connect with family and to entertain special friends. The beautiful, crystal clear lake will call you back year after year! I love the local shops and restaurants and being near the Chain of Lakes area. We aren't part of the Chain which makes our lake very private and peaceful but we still can take advantage of all that the Waupaca vacation area has to offer! It is a great area for families and couples.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It was our desire to make this property a place where we would love to spend time alone or to entertain guests. I believe that you will not be disappointed with your stay here.....the lake is pristine and the local community is full of a variety of really nice restaurants and shops and galleries. I have spent time in this area almost every year since I was a small child - I currently live only an hour away but it still feels like I've completely gone on vacation when I step inside this lake home. My favorite times involve sitting on the bench at the end of the pier. Enjoying my morning coffee or a glass of wine during a sunset......good stuff!
