  • beyond our expectations

    "Our family has spend a lot of time on the North Shore of MN and we love Madeline Island but this was our first visit to Door County. When we travel we use VRBO and were impressed with the helpful pictures and related information on the Killasonna website. It sounded like the perfect cabin for us in a great location. Both of those were true. The cabin was better than we imagined. We love to cook and the kitchen is great. We also love to eat out and there is no shortage of places nearby. We were also in close proximity to great coffee shop. We were training for a rollerblade race which requires smoother roads than needed for biking. John said the road just outside the lodge was good - and it was great. The close proximity to excellent parks and beaches and hiking topped off our satisfaction. We managed to explore the towns, take several hikes and enjoy quiet times reading. The beds were very comfortable. The lodge is such a lovely design and the property is indeed right on the water. Even the rains felt magical and relaxing. We had only planned to land here because we were crossing WI looking at colleges for our daughter. But we so loved the lodge and the location (finding gallery's in the middle of no where was also fun) that we all said we'd like to come back to Door County and stay in Killasonna Lodge."

  • Perfect for a family vacation

    "This is a perfect place for a family to take their vacation. The cabin is very spacious with plenty of room and very clean. Great view of the lake and it was nice being on a quiet bay. Big Crawling Stone Lake (& the chain of 10 lakes) is awesome and very crystal clear lakes, fishing was okay caught a lot of fish unfortunately to small to keep. Loved the fact of having a private pier that our 18' boat fit nicely at. There are nice touches everywhere, like family games, books to read and a fire pit. Our daughters enjoyed the paddle boat and wanted to take the canoe out but we just ran out of time. There is plenty of room for parking and parking your boat trailer. We would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone. We look forward to hopefully taking another vacation here."

  • We Loved The Boathouse!

    "From the moment we found this property online we were very excited! We had a “home leave” trip planned back to the USA from Tasmania, Australia, but we didn’t want to spend a month in a hotel. Thanks to the ease of viewing the house availability online and the timely responses from the owner we were able to book our stay in no time. This cozy cottage was just what we were looking for -close to our old neighborhood, close to Milwaukee, close to shopping, close to restaurants, etc… And the best part of all it was on a beautiful, serene lake! It worked out perfectly for us. We had all of the comforts of home along with the perfect, private place to relax after a long day of visiting friends and family. The house had everything we needed for our stay. Every kind of dish, pan, utensil we needed was there. Even the Weber BBQ grill made us feel at home. The kids really enjoyed being able to wake up, walk outside and fish right off the pier! The kayaks and the little rowboat were worth hours of entertainment, as well. One evening, we are pretty sure, we were viewing the re-enactment of a Three Stooges episode involving our son, two of his friends and a boat. It was priceless! And what trip to the lake would be complete without a bonfire and s’mores? The fire pit was perfect. And we can’t forget to mention the lovely screened-in back porch. It’s the perfect place for morning coffee or an evening card game. A highlight of our stay was seeing the little hummingbird flutter around all of the beautiful flowers each evening as we were preparing dinner or having a drink out on the beautiful deck. We even woke up one morning to see two beautiful swans on the lake. If we are ever in need of a place to stay in the area again, we will definitely be checking on The Boathouse’s availability! Heck, even when we move back to the area we might just have to rent the Boathouse again…"

Wisconsin Travel Tips

No matter what type of adventures you’re looking for, Wisconsin is sure to give you what you want. Thanks to its varied terrain, outdoor and indoor adventures are plentiful here, and its combination of populous cities and charming small towns makes it a great place for those looking to get away or immerse themselves in a new city’s culture. If you can’t decide which Wisconsin destination to visit, look into these cities:

Lake Geneva

Lake Geneva is found in the southern part of the state near the border with Illinois. There are several restaurants in this town to enjoy, including family eateries such as Margot’s Restaurant, Popeye’s on Lake Geneva, Pier 290 and Clausing Barn Resaurant. A family meal at Pier 290 will sit you along the shores of Geneva Lake where you can enjoy the rustling of the waters as you munch on a delicious meal of American cuisine. Before you stop and eat at Clausing Barn Restaurant, be sure to take a tour of the 19th-century museum and walk through the grounds of Old World Wisconsin, where you can learn more about the state’s early beginnings of rural and immigrant life. Art lovers should stop by the many galleries and exhibits in the city, including Geneva Art Pottery, Maple Park Antiques and Lake Geneva Antique and Art Bazaar. At these locations, you can purchase items and browse through the works of local talent. If you’re really itching to visit the big city while staying in Lake Geneva, Chicago is only an hour and a half away by car.

Milwaukee

Milwaukee may be best-known for its delicious taps from breweries large and small alike, but this beautiful city also sits along the shores of Lake Michigan and features many attractions for everyone. Children will enjoy the Milwaukee County Zoo as they pick out their favorite animals. They’ll also love the science and technology at their fingertips with a trip to Discovery World, which can be found along the water in downtown Milwaukee. Many festivals come to Milwaukee year-round, and present a great opportunity for visitors to get out and explore the city on a deeper level. For a night of sports, you can venture out to cheer on the Milwaukee Bucks during basketball season or watch the Brewers outscore their visiting opponents. Adults can enjoy the Harley Davidson Museum, Milwaukee Theatre or the Miller Brewery Visitor Center and the Girl in the Moon Brewery Shop. Shopping is all over town and includes boutiques, brand name designers, an adorable farmers market and some of your favorite retail stores. A trip to Milwaukee will not only be the escape to the city you never knew you needed, but also a prime chance to enjoy yourself with a relaxing trip.

Madison

Madison is the capital of Wisconsin and home to several historic sites as well as the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Despite being a small, college city, there’s much to do in Madison, including it’s downtown area known as State Street as well as great shopping and dining destinations in the bustling Capitol Square. Don’t forget to pencil in a trip to the 100-year-old state capitol which towers over the city thanks to its gilded bronze statue. Daily tours are offered to the building’s visitors, where they can get a more in-depth look at the history behind the state and how it got to where it is today. Down the street a couple of blocks is Monona Terrace, a center designed by the famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. He once called nearby Taliesin home and his presence is still felt in Madison and its neighboring cities. You can take a tour of the home and stand in awe at the city and lake views from the rooftop garden, the perfect place for a picnic.

Wisconsin Dells

No matter the time of year, there’s always a water adventure to be had in Wisconsin Dells. The "water park capital of the world" has indoor and outdoor water thrills which are some of the best you'll find anywhere. There are five indoor and outdoor water park attractions open to guests during the year’s warmer and cooler months, including Chula Vista, Kalahari, Mt. Olympus, Noah’s Ark and Temple of the Black Pearl at Polynesian. Noah’s Ark is the only water park in Wisconsin Dells that is open during the summer months; however, with four others to choose from, there’s still plenty of fun to be had here. Kalahari is a safari-themed attraction that includes the uphill water rollercoaster called Master Blaster, and the family raft ride, Victoria Falls.
