Why Vicki chose Oconomowoc

This 2 Acre Property is 25 min. west of Milwaukee, 35 min. east of Madison, & 75 Min. north west of Chicago just a mile south of I-94. The home is on one of the cleanest lakes in south-eastern Wisconsin. The entire lake can be seen from our shore (yet is large enough to ski on) which is important to us as we have kids who are constantly out on the water.

What makes this house unique

The size of the lot, almost 2 acres, affords privacy, plenty of parking for visitors, and room to spread out. While feeling like we are in an 'up north' setting, the property is close to shopping and a variety of restaurants. In the winter, the lakehouse is perfect for family gatherings; ice skating, ice fishing, cross-country skiing and Olympia Resort is only 1 mile away for downhill skiing!

Very well appointed cabin. We were very comfortable here and found the cabin to have plenty of room for everyone. Lake is weedy, but that means it's clean. We found the deep side and took our rented pontoon to that side and floated and played in the water there. Plenty of room outside to play, eat, have a fire and swing. Vicki and Tom were very responsive to our texts and emails. Nice people!

Beautiful, well-maintained property

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property with lovely, accessible lake frontage and dock, sandy shores, clear water, and plenty of fish. Our family had a fantastic vacation and the home was clean, and well-appointed. The boat rental options make for a fabulous stay and the size of the lake is perfect for human-powered crafts. We were able to see where our kids were at all times when they would kayak or canoe around the lake. A beautiful and relaxing spot with responsible and attentive owners!

Loved it here!~

  • 5 of 5

The pictures just don't do this place justice. I really enjoyed saying here. I enjoyed the house, the bonfire pit, everything was included. Rooms were huge, and furniture was clean and nice. We rented the Pontoon for an extra $500 for 4 days. The yard to water doesn't have a lot of steep stairs, so it was good for the father in law who had trouble walking. I'd like to bring my dogs next time. We'll be back for sure!

Week at the lake

  • 5 of 5

What a great place my family and friends had a great time. The house has everything you need, the yard is big and provides plenty of space to play. My dogs had a great time swimming in the lake. The lake is beautiful despite the low water level due to the drought. Very private and quiet. The best part is it's location only took me a short time to drive home. Would love to come back again!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here July, 2010 and had a great time. Property and house were beaufitul and easy to get to. The picture of the property is very much accurate except the grounds were bigger than it shows. There was enough room for 5 kids, 8 adults and 2 dogs. Very clean and spacious. We rented the pontoon and paddle boat which was a hugh success with the kids. The guys fished every day and we actually had fish a couple times a week. Waking up early and sitting outside to see the morning sun was the best for me. Nothing like a cup of coffee with some peace and quiet. The owner Vicki was wonderful and she explained everything. Grocery store was easy to get to. It's a great location. We pretty much sayed on the grounds except for going into Milwaukee. I would highly recommend this property. Phyllils
