  • Girls' Fall Weekend

    "My friends and I were not disappointed in the Stauss' condo! It was lovely, convenient to get to, tastefully appointed and very spacious for 4 women! We enjoyed the patio for our morning coffee and the large living room for our evening glass of wine. The house was clean, the beds were comfy and the kitchen well-equipped. It felt like home!"

  • Great way to start the New Year!!

    "Our large group of friends came on New Years Day and were awed by this amazing home. The large spacious rooms were cozy and interesting in their decor. The view of the river was breathtaking. We especially enjoyed it having our morning coffee by the kitchen bay window. The kitchen has a large table that seats 12, and was fully stocked with ample dishes for all. There were two coffee pots as well as other extra amenities. It accommodated us with so many bedrooms and three bathrooms. In the evening we enjoyed conversation around the cozy stone fireplace, (fire wood supplied) then watched DVD'S also supplied by the owners. Some of us played ping pong while others played foosball and air hockey while waiting their turn at the ping pong challenge. We also took long walks and tossed a football in the yard. The owners were great to work with and went out of their way to insure that we had everything we needed. We all vowed to come back in the summer so we can enjoy boating and summer activities. What a great way this was to start the New Year!!"

  • Cozy retreat

    "We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, which is really a very cozy home and fully equipped. The owners are very accommodating and helpful, and the price is excellent for the area. The lake was perfect just like the weather for our ten day stay. Fishing was a bit slow, but it was still fun to be out in the boat provided or to just sit on the pier to fish. Having two grills to choose from was an extra plus. Burlington is a very nice town, quite scenic, with a lot to offer, or you can just relax & enjoy the cottage. We did bicycle the Seven Waters bike trail down the street from Riverside Park, which is a free and very peaceful activity. Thank you again Neal and Marilyn, for providing this homey retreat. We hope to return again in the future to enjoy another "quiet time" on Brown's Lake!"

  • WONDERFUL

    "This was a special time away for my wife and I. Our first vacation together in 23 years and we couldn't have picked a better place. Everything about the cabin, the lake and the area activities gave us the quiet and serenity we needed. It was wonderful."

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.
