  • Totally relaxing!

    "Our family really enjoyed this lake house! The linens were all crisp and new and the deck has beautiful new patio furniture. The most appreciated feature was the gradual slope to the peaceful lake, and the sandy beach for our grandson to play in. The view from the deck is exquisite! We also really appreciated having a rowboat and kayak at our disposal, and we fished right from the very sturdy dock. The owner was very accommodating and helpful and easy to reach by phone. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!"

  • Phenomenal Property

    "The property was phenomenal both inside and out. Highlights listed below. Outside: • Exterior is very grand…jaw dropped when pulling into the property. • Huge deck with wonderful view was great for grilling, eating, and hanging outside. • Large flat yard was great for yard games. • Ample parking space (we had 5 cars parked on the property and there was more than enough parking space). Inside: • Cabin was absolutely spotless when we arrived. Probably one of the cleanest places I’ve ever stayed. • Décor was wonderful….had a luxury “up north” feel. • Great layout…very spacious and open. Whether hanging out in the kitchen, living room, or family room we had tons of space. • Beds and linens were very comfortable. • Wonderful to have 4 separate bathrooms. • Kitchen was fully stocked. Also, great to have fridge upstairs for food and downstairs for beverages. Other: • We rented a pontoon from Bear Country/North Country Vacation rentals. It was very convenient…they delivered it right to the dock. Everyone in the group loved it. We would definitely stay there again."

  • We felt like special guests at this lovely home!

    "We were very fortunate to find this one of a kind home for our family vacation. The house was immaculate, yet homey. And the pontoon boat for rent was a very convenient addition to a perfect time. My elderly parents fully enjoyed the beautiful wrap around porch. It was gorgeous from every direction. They also made full use of the elevator lift to go upstairs. My children (in their 20's) loved taking the boat around the lake. We had a wonderful time at every turn. We have rented many vacation homes over the years, and this one is at the top of our list. Besides having everything you could possibly want, Don and Connie made our feel like very special guests in their home. It was the little extra touches that made this experience just that much better......the freshly cut vases of flowers in the dining room and kitchen, the cold pitcher of lemon water waiting for us in the fridge, the personal welcome when we arrived.....all very lovely. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back. A truly special place that will be a big part of making any vacation great!"

  • Great Vacation Rental!

    "Our family and our extended family, 7 total, spent 7 days at The Blue Lagoon. The house was great. All the information listed for the rental was true. The house was updated, clean, and well-maintained. When we had a question Steve returned our call or came out right away. Having the 2nd bathroom and washer and dryer was awesome. The family fished in the morning and the spent the evening at Country USA. Fishing was good for walleye and bass and the boat launch was easily accessible. Off the dock they caught channel cat and bull head. We pulled out the boat each night and the property had a great space for the truck/boat and our other two cars. Loved having the ceiling fans in every room and having the air conditioners! Would definitely rent here again and will tell our friends about the house and experience."

Wisconsin Travel Tips

No matter what type of adventures you’re looking for, Wisconsin is sure to give you what you want. Thanks to its varied terrain, outdoor and indoor adventures are plentiful here, and its combination of populous cities and charming small towns makes it a great place for those looking to get away or immerse themselves in a new city’s culture. If you can’t decide which Wisconsin destination to visit, look into these cities:

Lake Geneva

Lake Geneva is found in the southern part of the state near the border with Illinois. There are several restaurants in this town to enjoy, including family eateries such as Margot’s Restaurant, Popeye’s on Lake Geneva, Pier 290 and Clausing Barn Resaurant. A family meal at Pier 290 will sit you along the shores of Geneva Lake where you can enjoy the rustling of the waters as you munch on a delicious meal of American cuisine. Before you stop and eat at Clausing Barn Restaurant, be sure to take a tour of the 19th-century museum and walk through the grounds of Old World Wisconsin, where you can learn more about the state’s early beginnings of rural and immigrant life. Art lovers should stop by the many galleries and exhibits in the city, including Geneva Art Pottery, Maple Park Antiques and Lake Geneva Antique and Art Bazaar. At these locations, you can purchase items and browse through the works of local talent. If you’re really itching to visit the big city while staying in Lake Geneva, Chicago is only an hour and a half away by car.

Milwaukee

Milwaukee may be best-known for its delicious taps from breweries large and small alike, but this beautiful city also sits along the shores of Lake Michigan and features many attractions for everyone. Children will enjoy the Milwaukee County Zoo as they pick out their favorite animals. They’ll also love the science and technology at their fingertips with a trip to Discovery World, which can be found along the water in downtown Milwaukee. Many festivals come to Milwaukee year-round, and present a great opportunity for visitors to get out and explore the city on a deeper level. For a night of sports, you can venture out to cheer on the Milwaukee Bucks during basketball season or watch the Brewers outscore their visiting opponents. Adults can enjoy the Harley Davidson Museum, Milwaukee Theatre or the Miller Brewery Visitor Center and the Girl in the Moon Brewery Shop. Shopping is all over town and includes boutiques, brand name designers, an adorable farmers market and some of your favorite retail stores. A trip to Milwaukee will not only be the escape to the city you never knew you needed, but also a prime chance to enjoy yourself with a relaxing trip.

Madison

Madison is the capital of Wisconsin and home to several historic sites as well as the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Despite being a small, college city, there’s much to do in Madison, including it’s downtown area known as State Street as well as great shopping and dining destinations in the bustling Capitol Square. Don’t forget to pencil in a trip to the 100-year-old state capitol which towers over the city thanks to its gilded bronze statue. Daily tours are offered to the building’s visitors, where they can get a more in-depth look at the history behind the state and how it got to where it is today. Down the street a couple of blocks is Monona Terrace, a center designed by the famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. He once called nearby Taliesin home and his presence is still felt in Madison and its neighboring cities. You can take a tour of the home and stand in awe at the city and lake views from the rooftop garden, the perfect place for a picnic.

Wisconsin Dells

No matter the time of year, there’s always a water adventure to be had in Wisconsin Dells. The "water park capital of the world" has indoor and outdoor water thrills which are some of the best you'll find anywhere. There are five indoor and outdoor water park attractions open to guests during the year’s warmer and cooler months, including Chula Vista, Kalahari, Mt. Olympus, Noah’s Ark and Temple of the Black Pearl at Polynesian. Noah’s Ark is the only water park in Wisconsin Dells that is open during the summer months; however, with four others to choose from, there’s still plenty of fun to be had here. Kalahari is a safari-themed attraction that includes the uphill water rollercoaster called Master Blaster, and the family raft ride, Victoria Falls.
