Mill Lake cottage description
Newly remodeled in 2012, 2 bedroom cottage has everything you could want for a relaxing lake experience. New, fully equipped kitchen, 1 queen and 1 full sized bed. Flat screen TV,VCR and DVD player with movie selection, wireless internet access and a screened in porch for your morning coffee. There is an air conditioner which is rarely used as the lake breeze cools the cottage quite nicely in the evening. Sheets and linens are provided. There are two rental cottages and and one cottage on this property that we keep for our personal use. The walk from the door of each rental unit is about 60 steps to the water. Each rental gets to use 1 side of the boat dock to tie a boat. The other dock serves to mark the swim area which has a sandy shallow bottom area and depth from 1 foot to about 5 feet at the swim platform. Each rental has a charcoal grille for personal use and we all share the picnic table and lawn chairs. We must limit this unit to 4 people and we do not allow pets or smoking. Rentals are from Saturday to Saturday weekly or monthly. Lauderdale is one of the cleanest lakes in southern Wisconsin and has no public beaches which helps keep it peaceful and quiet. The lakes are popular for fishing, skiing and tubing, wakeboarding, and we love to just swim and play in the water. Our lakes are spring fed which helps keep the water level fairly constant. During our prime months of Mid May through the end of August I have a one week, (Saturday to Saturday), minimum rental period requirement. Please feel free to call with any questions.

Perfect family getaway
Perfect family getaway
This cute, well-kept cottage was perfect for our family of 4. We thought about renting a sleek boat at the marina right next door, but just too many other things to do: We swam (see swim platform in photo), kayaked and fished in the beautiful clear lake. Owners are fantastic people and our stay was full of little surprises which made this stay unlike any other VRBO we have experienced. Plus, the price couldn't be beat for the location. In addition to playing in the lake: We walked 1/2 block to the 9-hole golf course (very affordable). We drove 4 minutes to LaGrange and South Kettle Morraine Park--one of our favorite places to mountain bike, with trails for all abilities. We took a day trip to Lake Geneva which is just south of Elkhorn. Alpine Valley concert arena is right nearby as well. A rainy day took us to New Berlin (about 30 minute drive just outside of Milwaukee) to the new indoor trampoline gym where the kids (and mom) burned crazy amounts of calories, playing dodgeball, jumping into foam pits, and enjoying the climbing wall. Thought about taking a day trip to Madison and Old World Wisconsin too, but just ran out of time. This place is a gem!

About the owner: We currently live in St. Charles, IL. in the winter and split our summers between Illinois and Wisconsin at the lake since our retirement in 2012.
Why the Owner Chose Mill Lake:
When my daughter was 5 yrs old we used to spend a week at the hotel on Lauderdale every summer. When the hotel turned into condos we tried numerous other lakes in the area but they just did not compare. We worked hard and saved and bought our cottage property over 20 years ago and have been fixing it up since every summer. There are three small summer-only cottages on about 3/4 of an acre of land with 100 ft of lake frontage. These types of cottages are disappearing as time goes onand being replaced by much larger homes. They are clean and neat and life is just more relaxed when we are here. It is wonderful to leave the fast pace behind and play in the water with our granddaughters who are now 6 and 2 years old. Clean water, cool breezes, sailboat races on Sunday mornings and the golf course is just a short walk down the road. This is as close to paradise as there is in the midwest.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Martha and I are excited to share our property with other small families and we hope to hear from you. There are very few rentals on Lauderdale and we feel the value here is unmatched anywhere. Morning and evening coffee or coctails on the screened porch with a cool lake breeze will make you realize how good life can get.
