Car: Recommended

Memorial weekend is the Chocolate Festival in Burlington. The fourth of July is a special week to be at the cottage - there are fireworks in town on one night. Then on a separate evening there are fireworks over the lake that you can watch from the dock or join the 200 plus boats in the lake for a spectacular view! Milwaukee is near enough to take in one of the many festivals there.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We love Brown's Lake so much that we just bought another property just down the street, making this cottage available for rent for the first time this summer. We will be nearby if you need us for help or questions.

Why the Owner Chose Burlington:
We love the view from our deck and family room! You can't help but relax when you enter the door. One of the best locations on the lake for the sandy lakebed and the elevated views. You can watch the sunset from the dock.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Roughly 90 feet of sandy lakebed footage, great for swimming, water volleyball and fishing. You can't beat the views from the full wall of windows facing the lake or from the 3 decks.
