Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: Lynn and I have owned our lake home since 1988. Long ago we used to camp in the Kettle Moraine State Forest and decided that it was such a beautiful and secluded area we had to have a place here that we could call our home away from home. It has been a dream come true (but not without expense) where we have opened nature to our son and daughter whom can someday do the same with their own children. Let us provide you with the ideal lake house for your family and friends to getaway and experience all the area has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Whitewater:
The surrounding area is truly unbelievable and offers serenity and tranquility for a perfect escape from reality. There are countless hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, and boating activities in the summer and snowmobiling, ice fishing, ice-skating, sledding, and skiing activities in the winter. Rice Lake has very little boat traffic, as there are only 40 homes on the lake with few permanent residents. There are no marinas directly on Rice Lake, which limits visitors however; there is a boat ramp located on state park property if you wish to bring your own boat but be sure to obtain proper stickers and licenses. Speedboats and jet skis are welcomed between 9am-5pm with wake-free otherwise. Mornings and evenings are set aside for quiet canoeing or fishing or just sitting outside with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Our property is located in a wake-free bay so peace and quiet can always be enjoyed. For more action, Whitewater Lake (600+ acres) is right next door with a couple of marinas. There is no navigable access between the 2 lakes, just a spillover.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Recommended for: couples retreat, families, multiple families, women’s retreat, men’s getaway, hunters, fishermen. While we are very accommodating, we prefer families and couples who will take care of our home like their own. Teenagers looking for a party house– please do not apply.
