"When at last we thought we were doomed for our plans for our weekend away. When to our rescue were two perfectly sweet accommodating souls (whom we did not know) came to our rescue. When the other home we rented had fallen to water damage the morning we were to leave we were in a panic. We would like to Thank Julie and Greg for the last minute rush to rent us their beautiful Home in Delavan Wi. Much to our surprise it was so much nicer than the previous home we rent often. Julie and Greg's' home was delightful. The amenities are above what you would expect, clean well maintained and the ceiling well there are no words you must see it for yourself (exquisite)! It is a beautiful place so clean and comfortable. Granted we were there in the winter and did not use any of the amenities outside which look like it could be a lot of fun but the inside décor is lovely. The welcoming fire place was romantically warming and provided us with everything we needed to have a perfectly wonderful weekend. I almost hate to put such a great review (hoping to keep it to ourselves LOL!) but they deserve it. You will not be disappointed. We will return hopefully often it was the nicest place we have stayed with in the area. Now this maybe the weekend place for our little escapes from reality. Hallelujah!
All the best to you.

"We recently had a small military reunion at the Bunkhouse. The conversion of this historic property has been done to a very high standard. The interior is beautiful and spacious. Bathrooms and kitchen have higher grade fixtures. The large open space of the kitchen/dining/living room area allows everyone to be together. Quiet location, but Milwaukee is less than an hour away, and Port Washington only a few minutes. Would recommend to anyone who has a group wishing to get away together."

"We have just completed our stay at The Retreat. This was quite the wonderful place to vacation. Located right on Lake Michigan - we looked out the window on occasion and it felt like we were on a cruise with the close proximity of the water. There are an amazing number of beds and televisions and other electronic equipment that we had no clue how to use. However ... we did not come to watch TV or play electronic games.
Our group of 11 have been friends for almost 60 years and gather every two years for this reunion. Dan has equipped The Retreat with most anything you would want. There are games, a hot tub, and every appliance known to man. Another very nice touch was paper towels, tissues, plates and napkins that were provided. The road to the house is not paved so it is a little bumpy ... but once you arrive, it is as if you leave the rest of the world behind you.
We visited the Hob Nob Restaurant, the Chancery and John's Dock for some live music entertainment and would recommend them all. The Kenosha Art Museum with an impressive watercolor exhibit and the Natural History Museum were quite fine, and the Civil War Museum was amazing. We would recommend all and they were in close proximity to the house. The Kenosha North Shore Light House was also an enjoyable visit. It is such an easy drive from the Chicago area. So we would heartily recommend anyone to stay at The Retreat."

"8 of my closest friends and I wanted a place to hang out for the weekend. Play bags, BBQ, sit around and not do much at all. We have stayed in Wisconsin now for a few years running and this was the nicest house we stayed in. Great ping pong table, TVs in all the right places, HUGE yard on the water. I would recommend this place for any large group to stay."
