Beautiful lakeside home

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home hoping for a relaxing holiday weekend on the lake and was not disappointed. The home was beautiful and we loved sitting on the deck and enjoying the views of the lake. The fishing off the dock was very good and we spent our evenings around the fire pit. I would definitely recommend this home and look forward to staying again.

Great views and relaxed.

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time. Great views and convenient by Ferry. Kids could swim and fish off dock. Spacious open layout. Not all items in working order but really not an issue as all we needed was available and OK. Quiet and friendly area. BBQ and firepit nice. Could use hose to washdown bugs on lakeside. Window views awesome but lots of morning light. Overall very nice.

Exactly as described. Home is stunning! Very clean and plenty of space. Right on the water and close enough to do lots of activities or nothing at all. Owner was very helpful and communicative. Would absolutely stay here again.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to have for all of our family to get together last week. The accommodations were perfect. The house was clean and very comfortable. The weather was great and we were able to enjoy all of the beauty of Lake Wisconsin right from the deck. We would love to do it again. We highly recommend this house - especially for families.

Excellent place to chill and gather!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place!! We didn't know the place is going to be very nice and comfy. we spent most of the days in the very nice living room talking and playing games with others. Place is right beside a beauty lake and 30 mins drive to devil lake. Totally recommend the place!

Neat place & location, could be better maintained

  • 3 of 5

Very neat home, cool construction. Great view, and very close to lots of great hiking and Wisconsin Dells activities. The master suite is huge, and the kids enjoyed the big tub. The wrap around porch was unique, and it was nice that there were doors on it so you could close off the stairways to keep little ones inside.

Some disappointments:

-There were webs and bugs everywhere (inside and out), and my son got stung by a bee within 30 minutes of getting there.

-Cleanliness in general was not what I would expect for the price. One of the toilets was very obviously not cleaned, which made me wonder what else wasn't clean.

-Listing said a crib was included, and I questioned it on the phone and was told there was a pack-n-play there. No crib, no pack-n-play.

-There was a disgusting bucket half full of water and cigarette butts outside the porch door. Not what I wanted to look at, and definitely not what I wanted my 1-year-old playing with.

-Took an email, phone call, and 6 weeks to get deposit back.

-Slept 6, no more. Also, dining room seating barely accommodated 6, no more.

Owner's Response: Always try for everyone to be satisfied. Outside of the home and deck is professionally power washed in May as it is full all summer can only do so much. I have to make note this is a three bedroom house, not set up for large groups. There are 8 chairs for the kitchen table and 3 stools at the breakfast bar. Can only speculate on the toilet and cobweb statement. there is only about 4 hrs between guests, some groups are hard to keep up with. Always trying to improve. Thank You, Dave
