  • Escape the craziness of work

    "This is our third trip to the Oostburg-based beach; our first to this charming home. The home sits right on the lake and offers a wonderful escape from the craziness of work! In fact, expect to take a full break from work because hotspots and cell service are spotty without a road trip toward town! But, ask yourself, why work when the lake beckons you to slow down and enjoy the fruits of your labour? Each morning the lakeside patio invited us to sit with coffee and watch the morning unfold across the lake or walk the mile plus of sandy shoreline. The quaint kitchen and Weber grill on the patio offered sufficient tools to cook a meal or make appetizers for happy hour. Bring bicycles. Town is just a short, 3-mile trip west; Andrea Kohler State Park, 5.5 miles to the north. When you return, take one of the loungers down to the sand, and do nothing. Come nightfall, watch the stars move across the expansive sky then fall asleep in the European style master bedroom (two twin beds) listening to the waves. Insider Tips: Stay in touch with the owner. Ask for an early check-in (5:00pm is hardly enough time to get oriented and you pay for the entire day). And be prepared for the 10:00am required departure, which makes the end of your relaxing trip rushed."

  • Beautiful, Very Special Retreat

    "We spent four wonderful days here, and were so sad to leave! This is a unique, lovingly maintained property with tremendous character. The location is perfect - it's close to "town" in Ellison Bay, yet you feel a million miles away. It's large enough to host a small family reunion (as we did), with a kitchen that begs for collaborative cooking. The firepit is the perfect spot for stargazing, and we had a lot of fun playing badminton. And the WiFi works just fine :). We loved our time at Whytefyshe, and hope to return one day."

  • Great house & owner!

    "We (2 couples) rented this house for our annual trip to Cranberryfest. What a great find and great place. Owner Robert was very nice, helpful and generous. Although we had to keep an eye on our 2 doxies due to roaming/flying wildlife, they enjoyed their wanderings and stay too. We would highly recommend and definitely stay again!"

  • Labor Day Weekend 2014

    "Definitely consider this property for your vacation hangout. The first time I stayed at this property (which is a beautiful lake home) was in 2009 and I was pleased to see it continues to offer all the conveniences of home, is still a very clean property and is a quiet location for fishing, sleeping, walking, biking, etc. The owners are wonderful, they are very friendly, kind and helpful. The weather this year was unpredictable but regardless, the time away and in such a great spot (Hayward on the lake) made the experience priceless."

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.
