  • Overall a nice stay

    "Overall, we enjoyed our stay. The house was bigger than expected, over 5,000 sq ft for the family to spread out. Mind you, despite the substantial size there still are still only three actual bedrooms with doors. There are two other sleeping areas, off the master bedroom, lofted up from the main living area. While these spaces may be fine for kids, they may not offer enough privacy (or insulation from sound in the rest of the house) for most adults. The lower area has a private apartment, complete with kitchen & separate entrance. This secluded space was perfect for a sleeping baby & quiet time away! The yard is great, set back from the street, no worries about kids going into the road. There were many steps down to the beach & we were there for days & not once did we ever run into anyone else on the beach (besides our other family who was staying at the rental house next door). It was great - right next door, through some tall grass, is another rental house (different owners). It was perfect for our family reunion to be able to have the two houses next door to each other, kids running back and forth between them. The owner was very friendly and helpful prior to our visit, giving us restaurant ideas, etc. We did get most of our security deposit back but did get two deductions we weren't thrilled about. First, as we were leaving one of the adults spilled a beverage on the carpet (mind you, the entire house is all carpeted in an off-white very light carpet, not exactly practical for a rental). My aunt (mother of three & professional stain remover) spent a lot of time getting the stain out & it appeared to be gone, simply still damp from being cleaned. Well, we got one ding in the security deposit for that- I'm not sure what else really needed to be done besides simply letting it dry. The second deduction came because my Mom (staying next door) realized a serving platter of hers had been left at the Dome House. This was about an hour or so after check-out from the Dome House. She called the owner to make sure it was okay (yes) to stop by the Dome House for the platter. The housekeeper was already there cleaning, Mom said hi, took her platter and left. Then we got a ding on the security deposit for the housekeeper's time to find the platter!? Overall, we enjoyed our time here. However, when spending hundreds or thousands to rent a place it doesn't really feel good to get nickel and dimed on your way out the door."

    "I gathered my family of 14 (7 adults/7 children) for a once-in-a-lifetime family vacation. We traveled from AZ, Chicago and the Minneapolis area. Upon entering the home, our mouths dropped in amazement at the grandeur of the interior...and the setting on the lake. It far exceeded my expectations!!! There were so many amenities for the children as, trampoline, tree house, tree swing...and more. So much fun cooking together in the very well-stocked kitchen, space for everyone to have privacy if desired, great music system and, of course, s'mores at the lakeside fire-pit made the overall experience unforgettable. The owners go above and beyond to provide a memorable experience for everyone. Thanks so much!"

  • Perfect Getaway!

    "The stay at Cozy Cabin by the Lake was like stepping into a loved one's home. This owner was welcoming and well stocked! This kitchen had everything we could want or need for a home cooked meal. We watched great movies every night and enjoyed exciting games on the dining room table. Our family of five fit comfortably in this wonderful home. We were two doors in from Michigan Lake which, though cold (thanks to the Polar Vortex), had soft sand and some lovely people. Our two little dogs loved the yard and the beach! This owner has everything a person or furry friend could need at the cozy cabin. We visited Koher-Andrae State Park just minutes away. We also visited Sheboygan Falls which was very nice but pretty sleepy on Mondays. This location is convenient to quaint Wisconsin towns or cities like Sheboygan or Milwaukee.We were pleasantly surprised by the Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan! If you are looking for sun and sand but love a nice wooded setting, this is the place for you! We loved it!"

  • It was like traveling to a scenic getaway - without having jet lag! Thanks for the memories!

    "After a long Minnesota Winter, my family and I needed a relaxing retreat and that was what awaited us as we traveled to the Waldwic House Country Estate, nestled outside Oshkosh, Wisconsin. As we approached the beautiful Waldwic House Estate, we felt the stress of our crazy lifestyle leave our body. The home greeted us with a very charming elegance yet offered us all of the comforts of home. As we entered this charming home, we were welcomed by the owners, Linda & Mike and it was as if we were part of their family - what a wonderful feeling. The property was breathtaking and I am looking forward to coming back again this Summer to see the spacious gardens and beautiful pond. The Waldwic House became our home for the next week and it was a wonderful time to just let go of all of life stresses and to achieve a memorable relaxing experience in a place we soon felt as home. Waldwic House as well as our hosts accommodated our many needs as we orchestrated this week long getaway. We had additional family joining us for the second part of our week and Linda helped us in securing a local caterer to design a dinner party at the Estate - It was a huge success. Thank you Linda, we could not have pulled it off without you. The house with it's beautifully spacious Great Room and kitchen provided us with a vast amount of space for family and friends. A great night was had by all. As we traveled to our guest suites, it was as if we had gone to a luxury hotel. My family and I had a wonderful experience and felt as if we were not on a vacation, but relaxed enough to feel right at home. The charming home, and expansive property was just what we needed. We will be back! If ever you feel like you need a get away escape to a georgous property - The Waldwic House Country Estate is your destination retreat! Thanks for the memories - looking foward to coming back soon!"
