"Our son was getting married at Hawks View Golf Course. The drive was 15 minits. Instead of my immediate and extended family getting hotel rooms for 2-3 nights, my husband and I rented this home. The ages of guests were 15-84. There were many reasons for the choice, but the most important was that I didn't need to worry about anything at the house, I had so much to do with the wedding. The house was certainly large enough, with plenty of beds for all, my sister has 3 girls and the basement was perfect for her and her family, and a visiting aunt. The basement bathroom is huge with plenty of hooks to hang towels, the only problem was there weren't any down there, so we had to scramble to accommodate them. Thanks to Sis, she brought some of her own. The Jack N Jill bathrooms on the first floor were convenient for sharing. The other 2 powder rooms (.5 bath) were a huge plus. The Sunroom is awesome, with some early risers they could make coffee and head into the sunroom and not disturb others sleeping. About 9ish in the am, we saw a buck adjacent to the house in the field, he sauntered around picking at vegetation. He had a new rack coming in, but we figured he was 3-5 yrs. old. That was cool. The Kitchen is large and has plenty of work space. People leave behind some condiments etc... in the fridge which is very nice in case you forget something. If I had any complaint it is the room/bed comfortableness. I actually slept in 3 rooms looking for the 'right' one and never found it. One set of twins is very squeaky, one set of twins is not that much better. The King Room is so bright in the AM that I had to wrap a bandana on my eyes. There was a 'musty-ness' to the King Room Closet. This is a pet-free home, I just happen to bring a Nutri-Air spray and I'm glad I did, there is dog bedding in the closet, I must have been sensitive to that and got a little uncomfortable. The process of renting was smooth, you get plenty of do's and don'ts instructions/sheets etc.... This property made the 'wedding' madness a little easier to come home to. Thank You"Guest: Kathy M.

"Me and 11 friends wanted a weekend getaway in Wisconsin, and after looking at listing after listing, I found this lovely lake house on VRBO. By a pure stroke of luck, the weekend we wanted was open and I signed the contract without hesitation. Upon my arrival, my jaw dropped - the pictures do no justice in showing the beauty of this place! The house was so spacious, the two decks were perfect for lounging, and the back yard was everything I could have hoped for. Our group enjoyed a weekend of kayaking, sitting around the awesome fire pit, grilling for every meal, and playing games without a care in the world. My only regret is that I could not stay for a whole week! To quickly summarize a few other points: the house was very comfortable and very clean, the linens were plentiful, the selection of games in the basement was great, and we really appreciated the amount of cookware in the cupboards! Thank you Cathy for renting us your lovely lake house, and also for being so great on the phone and via email. I will definitely try to make it up there again!"Guest: denny3 Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 17, 2014View listing
"My four adult children and I arrived in Lake Geneva dog-tired. But, OMG, did we wake up at the sight of our wonderful vacation house. Fabulous home, great interior and backyard. The house was very well maintained, wonderfully furnished, fully loaded with electronic, digital reqs. The Rich family have a great place. Thanks so much for sharing it with us, for the treats and all the recommendations. We'd love to return. My kids will forever call it 'the Don Draper lake house'! Fontana and surrounding areas are looking good these days.....having grown up nearby, it is comforting to know it's still a good destination! (Randy, the GPS gave us a bit of an adventure in immediate vicinity. Knocked on a couple of wrong doors at first. Ha.) Christine, Johanna, Gabe, Jesse, and Emma"Guest: Christine R.
