"My friends and I had a guys weekend and found ample beds, very comfortable accommodations and overall a very comfortable and nice cabin to enjoy. The owner was very prompt and courteous in communication and had the place very well taken care of and stocked. The condition and comfort of the place exceeded our expectations and we thought it was even better than the pictures show. Very nice."Guest: Dave from Minnesota Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: May 28, 2014View listing
"We stayed at this cozy little cabin for a long weekend with our dogs and had a great time. We wanted a centrally located cabin as we had a lot planned and wanted to be able to get from bay to bay quickly & this couldn't have been a better location for that! Just a block off the water, we were within walking distance to the visitor center, eateries and a few shops. The cabin had ample parking and was very clean. It is very small and if we go back I think we would check into the other side of the cabin as it has the bedroom separated from the living area. This cabin is just 1 big room so you ended up sitting on the bed to watch tv and do everything else. The adjoining cabin was rented for 2 of the 3 nights we stayed and you could hear some noise back and forth, not a lot but muffled voices and furniture being moved. We didn't spend a ton of time in the cabin so for us this wasn't an issue. The cabin had all the amenities you need and we will look at renting one of the sides of this cabin again! Thanks for everything"Guest: jaykel Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 10, 2014View listing

"A group go us were coming to Elkhart Lake for a wedding and wanted to forego staying in a hotel or condo and stumbled upon this gem. The house has great character, clean and full of light. It's location puts you steps away from the lake (enjoyed a couple afternoons at the beach) and close to some great restaurants and one of my favorite bars - Siebkens! And the porch was great for a pre-dinner cocktail. Lisa, the owner, was great and so helpful in helping us get the lay of the land. We can't wait to go back next summer!"Guest: Elkhart Lake lover Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 30, 2014View listing
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 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 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 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.
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.
