  • Great Stay

    "Great location, great Cabin/Condo, the place was perfect, very comfortable and everything you needed was provided. Our group had 4 adults and 5 children infant to 7yrs, the Cabin was set up great for entertaining our group. Bridges Bay needs some work- very disappointed in the waterpark. The water park had areas that needed repair. The Lilly Pads were all torn up on the tops and two of the slides in the splash area were yellow caution taped off- big hole in the slide. With this being the off season and the waterpark closed during the week I would think there would be time for some repairs. We would stay at the Cabin for sure, probably not do Bridges Bay waterpark again."

  • TIME AWAY WITH FRIENDS

    "We rented this home with 3 other couples for a little get away. Wow were we impressed with this lovely home! It had everything we could have asked for and more. One of our favorite things was sitting on the screened in porch and enjoying the beautiful view. There was plenty of room for all of us and enjoy each other's company and all that the Lakes area has to offer, some golfing, shopping, and playing games around the dining room table! The owners were wonderful to work with as well! Thanks for a great time in a great house!"

  • Great family place to stay!

    "Our first full family summer trip and this condo was wonderful. We had five little children and they all were able to enjoy the shallow play areas of the indoor waterpark and outside pools. This unit has many beach towels and absolutely everything you need in the kitchen and laundry. The sofa bed is good for children but somewhat uncomfortable for adults but otherwise the beds were very comfortable. The owner is so friendly and easy to contact and work with. Great place to stay."

  • A Family Reunion Spot that is "hard to top!"

    "Fifteen people ( 8 adults and 7 children) recently gathered at The Barn House for a wonderful family reunion. When we were checking out, everyone said, "This place will be hard to top!" (We take turns selecting a place to stay for our reunions.) Truer words were never spoken! When we arrived the house was immaculate, awe-inspiring, and so very spacious! Gerarda and Tony really have a gem here! And they were wonderful to us! They gave us an amazing place to create beautiful memories! The Barn House can never be truly understood through the pics on this site! Let me tell you a few surprises for us. There are 3 levels and an elevator that my 75 year old mother-in-law greatly appreciated. The whole place is beautifully decorated and they include everything you could possibly want…shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, cooking oil, syran wrap, the list goes on and on! We immensely enjoyed preparing several family meals using their professional stove, refrigerator, gas grill and prep area. There were two huge dining room tables inside, as well as, three patio tables on the upper deck and screened-in porch. The fire pit on site was a gathering place each evening for smores and family stories. The huge area on the first floor allowed us to all lounge comfortably as we watched family videos. Tony and Gerarda live next door and respected our privacy throughout our stay. We loved chatting with both of them when they brought over a mounding platter of home baked chocolate oatmeal cookies! My husband and I stayed in the master suite in the loft area since it was our 23 wedding anniversary. What an incredibly gorgeous bedroom. The stunning stained-glass windows, comfy leather reading chairs and private bath and jacuzzi tub made us feel so very pampered! We loved using the nearby walking/bike trail and even spent part of a morning wading in the ankle-deep water. We were close to "The Field of Dreams, Dubuque, and Galena, and were able to explore these places with only a short drive. My husband's aunt said, "I"ve stayed at 7 different VRBO homes all over the country and this one by far has been the best!" She sums up our family's thoughts exactly…The Barn House is simply the best place to stay!"
