  • A Great Place for a Family Reunion

    "16 of us (ages 1 yr. to 88 yrs.) spent a fantastic week in August at this big, classic, lake home (with a Chicago style shady background!). Everything from linens and towels, kitchenware and appliances, furniture and lighting, reflects taste and style as well as a priority on beauty and comfort. Details in furnishings, design, and upscale but very comfortable room decor add a sense of grace and luxury without being overbearing or intimidating. There's plenty of space for everyone and everything. We played bocce ball on the lawn overlooking the lake, kayaked, fished (the 4 year old caught a nice sized trout that became part of our hors d'oeuvre spread for dinner that night), took cocktail cruises, swam and just sat around on the front porch catching up. We enjoyed morning walks on the property and on the rural lanes that surround this estate, played pool, read bedtime stories on the porch swing and ate very well from the grill and the superb kitchen. Old parents, new parents, preschoolers, college kids, and babies all voted it one of the best of our vacation-home-renting experiences, and there have been many. Amy has created a wonderful home on Lake Beulah and is a great person to work, with in all the ways I can think of."

  • A beautiful white Christmas!

    "We were reuniting our family for Christmas for the first time in several years and wanted to include our small dog. Our sons and daughter in law are all military and it is hard to get together. Since we used to live in Wisconsin, this rental home put us between one set of extended relatives in Milwaukee and another in Janesville/Madison. The location was perfect! The house was perfect! The view of the lake from the living room, kitchen and dinette is stunning, even frozen and covered with snow. While the women enjoyed the view from the cozy living room with fireplace, the men enjoyed the ice-fishing a couple of days---so fun! The home is truly warm and inviting, and the owners have stocked it with everything imaginable, from spices and cookie cutters to games, new magazines and comfortable towels and bed linens. We were so touched that it was decorated for Christmas for us....beautifully! And they put together a lovely gift basket filled with fine chocolates, a bottle of wine, crackers, cookies, etc. The owners really went out of their way to make this a memorable reunion for us. We only left the property once in our four day stay---to attend Christmas Eve Mass at the local church. I would love to rent this property in the summer or fall sometime. While winter was so pretty in Wisconsin, it was a little cold....10 below 0 one day! Brrrrr! But we wouldn't have had it any other way. We had a perfect White Christmas and will cherish the memory for a long time."

  • Wonderful secluded cabin by the water

    "My husband was in the area for work & we stayed here with our two boxer dogs! Joe the owner was wonderful and full of suggestions and must sees! The beach and waterfront was beautiful & private. The cabin was very clean & provided everything & more for all of our needs! Water cooler and bottled water too! My phone worked great here. I loved everything about this place and I hope to return here again when my husband doesn't have to work. Joe thank you again for the stay!"
