Wautoma lodge description

BRAND NEW CUSTOM DESIGNED AMISH LOG CABIN COMPLETED IN 2013. INCREDIBLY PEACEFUL AND PRIVATE ALL WOODED ACREAGE, CRYSTAL CLEAR LAKE, SAND BOTTOM STREAM RUNNING THROUGHOUT
ENTIRE PROPERTY!


Are you looking for a crowded water skiing lake? Loud neighbors you can see from your deck? A busy lake with lots of boats? A lot so small you can't even throw a football on? No birds or nature to enjoy?

**THEN THIS IS NOT YOUR PLACE!**

As it says in many of the reviews, if you ARE looking for 'stress free solitude' and a 'warm and peaceful' place to vacation, this IS the place.

Welcome to the Blackberry Lodge! A spacious log cabin built entirely by a local Amish family on 7 PRIVATE WOODED ACRES of paradise with a no wake crystal clear lake, no neighbors in sight, a beautiful sand bottom stream winding through the property, and park like trails for you to enjoy nature the way it should be. Charmingly named for the abundance of flowering and fragrant blackberry bushes throughout the property, Blackberry Lodge is nestled in a beautiful forest on a ridge overlooking the lake. It is peaceful beyond imagination and INCREDIBLY private. So private, in fact, unless you leave the property you may not even see another person during your stay except for the people in your group.
If you have never been in an Amish cabin before they are one-of-a-kind. The 'old world' construction, attention to detail, and northern logs are something you don't find today. Its a unique experience that you will truly appreciate once you step foot inside. I guarantee as soon as you get here you will forget about the stress and worry of your 'real life' and never want to leave. Our property and lodge are made for the ultimate in relaxation and the opportunity for you to truly bond with your family in the most peaceful outdoor setting imaginable.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We are a family of four with children 12 and 14 who love to camp, enjoy nature, fish, and hike. I have a sales and marketing job and my wife is what we call a 'domestic engineer' raising our two wonderful children. We stumbled across this incredible property in 2009 and loved it so much we decided to build 'Blackberry Lodge.'

              Why the Owner Chose Wautoma:
              We originally purchased this property so we could enjoy a 'home away from home' as a place to camp with friends and family. Everyone who visits falls in love with the privacy, nature, wildlife, lake and stream, and peaceful setting. We made the decision in 2012 to build a Amish log cabin and share this property with you, our new friends, so you can also experience the tranquility and beauty of the property that we have for the last 5 years. IF by chance you ever do want to leave for a short time (but you may never want to) we are SO CLOSE (just a just couple miles) from quaint little downtown Wautoma. Cute shops, restaurants, grocery stores, farmers markets, coffee shops, a nice wine bar, and friendly people! Wisconsin Dells is only 1.5 hours away. Two great 18 hole public course are less than 5 minutes away. And Big Silver Lake (a full waterski lake) is one mile away with a public boat landing. Its like you are in the middle of nowwhere without being in the middle of nowhere!

              The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
              Blackberry Lodge is like your own PRIVATE park in the woods and with your own lake. You wouldn't want to ruin a visit to the park with all kinds of electronics so we tried to minimize those distractions for you by not having: Cable TV, Xbox, Wii, WIFI, or anything else that could distract you. Remember, family retreat. That's what this place is all about. Disconnecting from everything for a few days will be just what you needed! With that in mind we have much for you to enjoy: Swimming, fishing, canoeing, paddling boating, and row boating on the lake. Navigating our sandy bottom stream with your small children (or big kids love it, too), looking for frogs (the record catch is 32 in an hour!), crayfish, or catching minnows. Long walks on our trails viewing all the wildlife. Don't forget about the firepits for bonfires at night or for 'pudgy pies' during the day. S'more heaven! We have lots of outdoor games for you to use: Horse shoes, bochi ball, ring toss. We have many books for you to read also in the bookcase. We will have a large assortment of board games for you to use. A flat screen TV will be above the gas fireplace for G and PG movies available for you to view. Sometimes you just need a distraction. Movies are just the ticket sometimes. But at Blackberry Lodge they will be good clean movies that any kid can watch without you having to worry about language or anything else. And how about just doing NOTHING. Sitting on our deck listening to the birds and looking at the lake. Have a beer or glass of wine. Grill a steak on our stainless steel grill on the deck. Kick back. Relax...
