About the property

House,4 Bedrooms + Other(See Description),2 Bath,Sleeps 12 in beds + portacrib

THIS HOUSE HAS IT ALL! Elkhorn-Lauderdale Lakes is Located 15 minutes North of Lake Geneva. If you want first class accommodations, as 1 of the guest describes it, this is the home for you. In the morning enjoy a hot cup of coffee on the upper and lower decks set among tall oak trees and enjoy a breathtaking view of the peaceful water. Then out for a day of boating,water skiing or lounging on the beach, fishing or grab 2 paddle boats for 4 & 2 kayaks (with life jackets) to discover Lauderdale Lakes. At night, gather around a stone fire pit for the best of what life has to offer, a bonfire with tons of seating under the stars..

THE HOUSE – VERY spacious 3,200 sq ft, New kitchen and 2 new baths, teak hard wood floors, 3 of the 4 bedrooms are lakeside, as are the living rooms!

Located on Middle Lake, of Lauderdale Lakes in Elkhorn, our home has 80 feet of lake frontage & 1 of the few, BEST private beach on the lake. Walk right into the water onto a sandy bottom, no muck! This is a spring fed very clean lake.

Our house sits among tall Oak trees; providing a secluded, peaceful, and panoramic view of the lake. I have a ton of information/brochures about the fun things to do in the area from previous guests and what your vacation home has to offer. Sitting under the stars enjoying a roaring campfire with tons of seating is another highlight!

THE UPPER LEVEL has Teak floors, a travertine bathroom with a Jacuzzi, and stained glass wall. There are 3 very large bedrooms (2 king beds, 1 queen) + portacrib, a kitchen/dining room seats your entire group, family room with fireplace and laundry room and a new deck that runs the length of the house with a lot of comfy furniture.

THE LOWER LEVEL has an enormous bedroom that has 1 queen and 4 twin beds; great for kids and adults alike! The Game/Family Room has everything needed for the young and young at heart (and if it rains!)

THE LAKE – Boating, Fishing, Swimming

If you want to go tubing, skiing, wakeboarding, or coast along the shore, you can rent our Supra Professional ski and Wake board boat & a driver who will give you lessons and cruise the 3 lakes. This includes life jackets,skis, wake & knee boards, tubes etc. Just sit back and enjoy for 4 hours - $495. plus gas. Rent a pontoon boat parked at your dock $1200. for 5 days or daily (call neighbor Pam 630-464-8944) or pull your own boat up to our dock. There are 2 kayaks and 2 paddle boats (seats 4) with life jackets. Our part of the lake is great for fishing. Some of the best fishing spots are just off our dock. Home to Bluegill, Walleye, Northern Pike, Large and Small mouth bass; everything for the avid fisherman or a 5 year old!

THE BEACH - The beach is the largest and most private on the three lakes. Plenty of seating and sunning! Swim off the dock or wade into sand based water. No one in our cove has sand based. The mound surrounding the beach has flowers blooming all summer long. The water is crystal clear being the third cleanest lake in Wisconsin.

A Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 7 days with family of 15 coming and going, tubing, fishing and sitting by a bonfire in the evening. I spent an afternoon sitting in a chair near the lake knitting, with my grand daughter and her grandfather fishing by the shore. A pontoon went by and a woman called to me, "you're in a perfect place". We all think it is a great house and would recommend it highly.

Thanks Cathy for sharing your beautiful home.

We strongly advise that the house manager meet you for a walk through upon arrival and departure with a check in and check out list. The first thing we notice was that the screen door was stuck and that the website pictures were deceptive and not up to date. There was an extra picture posted but has now been taken down since our stay. We thought that there were three sitting rooms for the family but there were only two.

Secondly, on the surface, the house looked clean but on further inspection the house was nasty. The upstairs shower and the refrigerator were dirty. There were terrible stains already in the carpet downstairs when we arrived: they were covered up with throw rugs. There were only 6 towels for 10 people and the towels were hard. Even though we were there in October the yard was deplorable. The Jacuzzi didn’t work; it was cold downstairs and hot upstairs; a stench was downstairs, and we had to use an old worn out dust pan and broom to clean.

Furthermore, the board games and electronics were out dated and the Wi-Fi did not work properly. The surround sound was unbalanced and would fade in and out.

We did try and work with the owner, but she couldn’t take corrective criticism. The owner’s initial personality was pleasant but later took a turn for the worse. Her allegations of what we damaged grew. Allegedly, the maid falsely reported that we left the house in a mess and her boyfriend said that we broke the screen door but we have video that we did none of these accusations.

She said we permanently damaged the bed spreads and sheets which are still showing on the website. Supposedly the house was left in worse shape than it’s ever been. Then why would she return a portion of our deposit if that was the case? We received more of our deposit after we contacted the VRBO website and disputed all of her allegations.

Notice the bad reviews; she places the blame on others.

I hope that the next family will take heed and beware. Learn from our mistake, report all of your concerns immediately to the owner and website.

Owner's Response: I've been renting my vacation home for 9 years as you can see by my guest reviews. Blackmail does not work with me. It appears you are writing a negative review because I with held 1/3 of your $500. Deposit. There is only 1 true statement you made. One of the stereo speaker wires was loose. It has been repaired. My additional costs for the many hours of extra cleaning, carpet cleaning, damages and repairman don't come close to what I withheld.

Awesome Lake Living

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house and the property overall. This inside is well maintained and has a look/feel of a true lake house. Two huge decks on both levels offer great views of the lake. The yard towards the lake is phenomenal including a double ringed fire pit where there is plenty of room for a large group to enjoy the rituals of lake life. The owner was very accommodating throughout the rental process. I highly recommend this house.

We enjoyed our stay at Cathy's home very much. The home was clean and had everything we needed. Had 3 generations staying and everyone was very comfortable and had loads of fun on the kayaks, paddle boats and fishing, ping pong table, pool table and foosball. Would stay here again!

Great getaway LOVED it...we will likely be back!

  • 4 of 5

Spentt a week in the house with our 3 kids. Rented boat for the week and skied. Boys loved the pool table and ping pong table. Super relaxing. 10 minutes away from kettle moraine so went mtn biking twice. Drove to lake geneva 20 min away for dinner and walk the town. Happy to be away from the rush of lake geneva and enjoy the lake. Had several lunches across the lake at restaurant that we boated to. Enjoyed the two for cocktails and one for eating. Worked well.

Cathy was quick in her responses in helping us find a workable coffee maker which we did.

House is located on no wake part of the lake which keeps it very quiet. Have to boat through marsh highway which was easy to get to main part of skiing lake (maybe 5 min). Swimming across the bay in front of house not possible due to shallow water and water lilies but you may be able to swim along lakefront for workout. Main lake broken into three sections so it helps make good water skiing conditions as the smaller sections protect from wind and good water can always be found somewhere....even when windy.

3 generations of fun!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent the last 5 days at Heaven for All Ages. It was such a fun, family filled time. The house was perfect-just a great mix of very nicely done and family comfortable. Plenty of towels, plenty of dishes, plenty of beach toys, plenty of suggestions on things to do in the area. We walked into a perfectly lovely, clean home and settled right in. Our grandkids aged from 2 years to 5 years old, and the house was very kid friendly. We are looking forward to another splendid time there next year!

The lower level is set up for the youngest to the older group with so many board games, ping pong (no beer pong), corn hole toss, pool table, game table,t.v.,stereo set up for 2 levels of different listening, Out door dinner seating for 12 on lower level for meals and additional lounging area with barbeque.
