Waupaca house description

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.

                              • 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....moreless

                                We had a great family week here. The pictures don't fully do this home justice. The rooms are bigger and more open, the furnishings are nicer, and the decor is elegant in a completely unfussy way. Trust me, you are going to go home motivated to make a few changes to your own space! No disappointing surprises, funky layouts or kitschy cabinware. The king bed and bedding were the best ever in a vacation rental. The clean, well equipped kitchen was a blast. The owner is incredibly well organized and thoughtful and gives you exactly the info you really need. She's super-responsive to questions and also returned our deposit very promptly, so nice. We wound up spending more time at home than planned, reading, meditating, swimming, playing games, talking and just enjoying this home's inviting spaces. When we did venture out, we fell madly in love with the Crystal River -- stop at Nelson Park off K/QQ, and be sure to stop at the nearby Red Mill to see an incredible riverside park and covered bridge (free). About 10 min. NW of house. Bring your camera! Also take a drive into the Town of Rural for yet another gorgeous view of the Crystal, this time set amidst homes dating from 1850. We also enjoyed the "Wau-King" bike trail and Little Fat Gretchen's diner in downtown Waupaca, across from the Library. The lakeshore isn't great for fishing, but is clear, clean and almost weed free. It didn't even smell like lake. Our daughter is usually squeamish about lake swimming, but here we couldn't get her out of the water. Adults enjoyed floating on the rafts provided, it's the best way to enjoy the very shallow water. One thing I'd change would be the noise from a large nearby camp. Somebody there needs to be told that when using a megaphone, one doesn't also need to shout. Luckily it was daytime noise only and not continuous. We were more amused than irritated, but it could be an issue if you have kiddos trying to nap. Definitely loved this place and will almost certainly rent it again if the opportunity comes up.

                                Loved this home and it's prettier in real life than the photos show! The lake frontage is shallow and sandy and the lake is large enough to enjoy water sports and small enough to enjoy using the supplied canoe and kayaks. Sparkling clean home and all the amenities you could ask for and if you enjoy cooking - this is the kitchen for you! The owner was wonderful to work with and very helpful. One of the nicest VRBO properties we've ever stayed in. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for some relaxing time with family or friends.

                                See the review tittled: " Absolutely Amazing" written by a guest prior to my stay. That review speaks to my sentiments exactly! The pictures do not do justice to the entire ambiance of this home. On entry, the our first words were: "OMG" in a good way! Spectacular for entertaining. Different family members stayed one or two nights throughout our stay which allowed for an intimate setting to reconnect with family members. Everyone who visited loved the property and home, they will be talking about the experience for years to come... I will be back

                                This was the first time renting a summer place for our family. We looked at 3 other places before finally choosing this home. We were thrilled when we arrived. The home is beautiful! Every little detail was thought through by the owners. Every room is designed for comfort and relaxation. The gourmet kitchen feels like home. The tv and entertainment center is top of the line. The outside surrounding area is private and welcoming. We sat in the 4 seasons room with views all around and enjoyed the fireworks on the lake as well as the quiet of the night. The lake was perfect for our family. We were able to have our grand kids in the shallow beach area and also go out swimming and tubing in the middle of the lake. The perfect lake! You cannot go wrong with this place. We will return often...

                                At first we weren't sure we wanted to stay on Spencer Lake because we have alway stayed on the Waupaca Chain. Well, we are so glad we decided to give this a try. It is simply the best vacation rental we have stayed in and we have done a lot of travel in the last 40 years. It is stunning! We are in our 60's and like to kayak so the quietness of this lake suited us!

                                I rent from VRBO minimally three times a year. This is the first review I have ever written, so that alone should tell you how wonderful this property is. The home itself is quite beautiful and beyond the simple comforts of home. Every room has a statement of "warm and cozy", yet still has the spacious room sizes . The home is decorated with exceptional taste, extraordinary in its cleanliness and is equipped with internet and a really cool home theater system. Although our time was mostly spent on the balcony facing the lake and on the lake edge itself, we appreciated the indoor comforts. The boardwalk that pertrudes out to the lake was a delightful walk in the morning with coffee in hand.... and at night the boardwalk was our final departure from our nightly campfire on the edge of the lake. Birds, eagles, cranes, critters of all to adore are everywhere. The open kitchen / great room concept was ideal for us and the kitchen is fully equipped with all ammenities. Ideal for entertaining. All the bedrooms are so comfortable...great way to end your day. The owners were exceptionally helpful with questions, recommendations, and responded immediately to all of our questions prior to the trip. I would highly recommend staying here for families, couples who want that romantic get-away and even for someone who just needs to get away for some peace time. Thank you to the owners for your kindness and for offering such a beautiful home for others to enjoy. We will be back....

                              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!
