  • great vacation, great host

    Sharon S.

    "We rented the house last October, when the autumn colors were just starting to show. The house itself is lovely, has a warm home-like feeling. The kitchen had everything we needed. We were 2 couples and a baby and it was perfect, because the baby got a separate room. We enjoyed the pool table. Basically just lazying about in the living room in the evening was a lot of fun , and probably is even better when it's snowing outside. The grounds were lovely, although it was too cold to actually sit outside. Have us a feeling of being out in the nature, which was a lot of fun. 15 min drive or less to the town of Lake Geneva, and a little less to the grocery store. Linda, the owner, was absolutely great, accommodating and helpful, more than we could have hoped for. For us, knowing that we're renting from someone we can trust is really important. We would absolutely come back if we had the chance. A great house for a weekend getaway."

    "4 friends and I of the 55+ group had a great time experiencing the SE WI area while staying at this wonderful retreat. The owners were prompt and accommodating to help us have a 'not-a-care-in-the-world vacation'. The accommodations were clean with a very functional kitchen and beautiful, comfortable furniture. What you see in the pictures is what you get."

  • Thanksgiving Getaway

    Rachel p.

    "My parents were coming to visit for Thanksgiving and I live in the suburbs of Chicago, so I quickly decided we needed to have a Wisconsin getaway. All I can say is WOW - I am so glad we did! When we arrived, we actually decided to stay another night. I have two dogs - a Bernese Mountain dog and a french bulldog so it is not easy to find accommodating rental homes. Gene was happy to accept us with the understanding if the dogs ruin anything that we replace it. This was a non-issue. I was able to block off the upper deck staircase so my Bernese could sit outside and stare at the lake and the forest all day! The house is clean and feels like a true home. We loved the gas fireplace that is located right in the center family room that is attached to the kitchen/dining area. There is a large basement with a bar area and game area, but we didn't even wind up using the downstairs (probably due to the great views from the family room!). The kitchen is stocked with everything you would ever need - including various pots and pans/baking dishes (which was very useful when making Thanksgiving dinner). They left us a lovely gift basket to welcome us. Although it was winter and very cold, we walked around the area a bit. The house is up a private driveway off of a cul-de-sac, so it is very private. You can walk down to the lake, but we didn't due to some ice and snow (which melted on our last day). We loved the getaway - the holidays can be hectic with family, but the quiet, serene atmosphere really made it a wonderful holiday. My husband and I will definitely plan to come back - and my parents (who actually traveled from New York) agreed that we should make it an annual Thanksgiving celebration."

  • Best time...second year in a row

    Sharon M.

    "We so much enjoy extending your cabin rental out !!! Once again, we enjoyed the serenity, the fishing, the kayaking in the morning while the fog was lifting, golfing, reading, swimming and finally, napping. We WILL see you again next year...and perhaps sooner (like in the fall)."
