"My family and I had a wonderful time at the Beasley Lake cottage. We appreciated the charm of the older half of the cottage and the modern conveniences of the newer half. The lake is amazing, and a short walk from the back door. This cottage is on a no wake lake, which is connected to Long Lake which is plenty big for water skiing. A paddle boat, canoe and fishing boat were suppled for us."

"We have stayed at this cabin two years in a row and expect to back in the future. We love the Waupaca area and this cabin is the right combination of getting away from it all and being comfortable and connected.
The cabin is on the small, quiet, no-wake Lake Beasley. The lake is clear and great for swimming, kayaking, fishing and canoeing. It was great that two kayak's and two canoes were provided. The only negative to the property is that the shoreline is mucky. If you had small children that wanted to walk right in to the lake from the shore this place would not work. However, it does have a long pier with an attached floating raft that goes far enough into the lake that you can jump and swim right off the end and be in good water for swimming.
There is a large area shown in the picture with a fire pit. We used it most nights.
The cabin itself is certainly not luxurious, but has everything you really need. Including a tv with cable and internet access. Beds are comfy and each bedroom has a air conditioner/heater that when on can really heat/cool the entire cabin. We had to use the heater one night that got pretty chilly!
We also love the Waupaca area. We have a favorite restaurant (The Wheelhouse), ice cream place (Scoopers) and we love to hike and bike in Hartman State Park which is basically across the road.
The owners of this cabin also will consider pets, which is great. I think our dog had as much fun on vacation as we did.
We just love sitting on the pier and drinking coffee in the morning and looking out over the lake. That is truly paradise to us."

"We had 8 adults for a week and enjoyed our stay. Our adult children really enjoyed the outstanding Wi-Fi system which even played on the wonderful covered front deck . We rented the pontoon boat, a must. Our biggest complaint would be the beds, they were not comfortable, especially the bunks and the loft futon is almost unusable for an adult, we bought a inflatable after a few days but there are no curtains in the loft so sleeping was iffy, would be ok for kids who sleep soundly. The kitchen was not well stocked for cooking, this is definitely a "man's" world. The location was great and the owner very friendly. The beach was muddy so you really need the boat. We would stay there again but bring a lot more of our own items."

"My family of four stayed here for a week of summer vacation. Our children are 12 and 13 years old. The cottage is outstanding. The area is fantastic as well. We only traveled from Green Bay so we were vaguely familiar with the 'Chain of Lakes.' After being here the first day and kayaking on Spencer Lake and then taking our fishing boat over the Chain of Lakes... I am so glad we did not stay 'on the Chain.' The Chain is only five minutes away so it was easy to go and enjoy it... we rented a pontoon boat on the chain and swam off of it etc... but it was so busy and the lakes so crowded. If I had stayed on the chain even two days I would have been sick of it. Coming back to the peaceful Dragonfly cottage was much better. We also loved swimming in Waupaca at Shadow Lake in a city park called 'South Park.' The park had a huge raft with a high dive and slide in a natural lake with a beach. We spent a whole day there. We also spent a day at Hartman Creek State Park biking... Absolutely loved it. The cottage has everything and more. Great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
