Perfect getaway spot
The house is extremely clean, very well stocked and in a great location. 5 minutes from a full grocery store and 10 minutes from downtown. The kitchen has everything you'll need to cook every meal, the living room was really comfy and we did watch a DVD one night. The bedrooms are really small, but comfortable and the back room looks out onto the river. The bathroom is beautiful and looks to be recently redone. Two notes on the bathroom, the shower floor gets really slick, the owner let me know there's a mat under the sink for use in the shower. The shower head seemed less than perfect but I didn't realize there were additional settings so I'm sure had I seen that it would have been fine. The backyard is absolutely awesome, the patio area is fantastic with a big table perfect for eating or just hanging out. There is a Weber grill with all the necessary tools and a picnic table down by the water. The neighborhood is quiet and the house was exactly what we wanted. We will absolutely be back!!
Thanks for the feedback. We enjoyed having you and hope to have you back again.
Fantastic lakefront house!
I booked this house for a weekend for myself and five buddies, and it was absolutely perfect for us. There was plenty of room to sleep everyone and the backyard leading to the lake was gorgeous. The owner was very easy to work with, and we had no problems whatsoever. I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone looking for a nice getaway!
Wonderful Stay - Wonderful Host!
Truly enjoyed our stay at the Fox River cottage. Nice setup. very comfortable, and wonderful hosts.
Bob and his family have the cottage outfitted with virtually everything you need and comforts of home. The setting is private, and the view is beautiful. The cottage is located in a small community - so you can enjoy country living, yet only a relatively short drive to virtually everything - including downtown Milwaukee, Lake Geneva and surrounding communities. Bob - thank you for opening your home to us, and allowing us to spend time with friends and family here in Wisconsin. We will definitely be back - and highly recommend. Thank you Bob!
I would return in a heartbeat.
Clean, comfortable, and well located cottage. Only thing preventing a 5 star rating is that the bedrooms are small and only one bathroom. Other than that, I would stay here again without hesitation. Beautiful views, well stocked with supplies, and comfortable interior. Very quiet at night and peaceful. Shopping is an easy 5-15 minute drive away. Downtown Milwaukee is 45 minutes.
I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a well located, quiet, comfortable place to stay.
We enjoyed having you. Thanks for coming half way around the world to visit Wisconsin. If you come to the US again let us know. Thanks
The house was dirty. Spider webs and dead insects all over the place. All bed sheets smelled funny. Shower tub was in someone's hair and looked like it wasn't cleaned in years. On top of that there was no shower head! Kitchen was not any better. The stove was all in cooking oil and just looked disgusting. We definitely left the place cleaner than it was. We rented the place for 3 nights but ended up staying only 2. The owner did not even offer a discount for leaving early and the inconvenience. If you like the dirt, spider webs and dead insects, then it is a place for you. Definitely not coming back and do not recommend to anyone.
Nice review. Too bad it wasn't even close to what you describe it as. Obviously this is your first time staying at a lake cabin. You city slickers should get outside more. Here's a tip for you. Keep the door screen closed and the bugs will stay outside. No shower head? We have a European shower head installed. It's the same kind I have at home. The shower and tub is scrubbed twice a week so what you claim is again false. We all got a good chuckle out of your review though. Especially your claim that you left it cleaner that when you arrived. It's too bad I let you stay at our place, I had so many people that wanted it for that weekend that would have enjoyed our place, not whined about a few bugs in the yard and make up a story about how disgusting the place is. By the way for the record you didn't ask for a discount. Funny I heard no complaints until after your stay. I would suggest not booking a lake cabin for your next getaway.
Enjoyable experience for us all
We loved our stay at this little cottage. Excellent location; secluded yet pretty close to everything you'd need in the area. Very quaint little town. Everything was as described on the website, and the prices are reasonable. One of the best things is that instead of automatically charging a cleaning fee, these owners allow the renters to clean up after themselves and not be charged a cleaning fee. I only hope that this will continue as past reviews show that not all renters clean up, or do a poor job of it. Just be respectful and treat it like your own home, that doesn't seem too difficult (for us anyway). I would definately recommend this rental to those who are mature and respectful, and it works great for pet owners like myself. I will be calling these owners first next time I'm in the area.
Thanks much for your review. We enjoyed having you. We will use your comments to improve where ever we can. Wish all our renters were just like you. Glad you guys had a great time. Hope to see you back soon. Thanks, Bob and Kim
