About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
There is fishing right off the private pier: northern pike, perch, bass, bluegills, crappies, pumpkin fish and the occasional brown trout. This area has great spots for the fish to hide in.
Two bedrooms with room in the closets and dressers for your belongings, an orthopedic memory-foam queen bed & a new queen, hardwood flooring, a comfortable living-room with leather couches, new HD-TV, games, playing cards, books and a fully-equipped kitchen with new some appliances, and a dining area will help to make you feel right at home.
Get away from the hustle and bustle for awhile. Bring your binoculars to watch the birds. Cardinals, king-fishers, woodpeckers, nuthatches and chickadees live here and so do sand-hill cranes, Canadian geese and squirrels. You can take the portable fire pit and the camping chairs into the yard, lounge in the hammocks (1 double, 1 single) or settle in at the campfire site close to the water on the collapsible lawn chairs. Pull the boat into the water and use the oars to get around or ask Jason for the trolling motor. Have fun and see some of the open countryside on the twin 3-speed cruiser bikes. Bring your snowmobile in winter and use the miles of trails in the area; access them right at the pond. Watch the sun rise over the lake across the expansive level yard from the house and porch through the old-stand trees.
I am lucky to have a great caretaker who lives next door and watches over the house through all the seasons. This makes the cottage available for use all year 'round. He is a great fisherman who can swear by this private part of the pond as a fisherman's hideaway spot both summer and winter.
Note! Senior discount (65 years of age or older) of $25 if more than two persons, or $50 for a single person or one couple!

About the owner: A fifth-generation California resident who lost her heart to Switzerland would not normally have a cottage in rural Wisconsin, but this is special. I live in Chur, Switzerland, and see my family in California about once a year. I have visited Manawa quite a few times to see where my good friend grew up.
Why the Owner Chose Manawa, WI, USA:
When my friend showed me the area where she was raised, I was smitten with the beautiful farms, woodlands and lake areas...but especially with the quaint little ranch-style cottage I found there on the quiet man-made lake called Manawa Mill Pond. The 1-plus acre yard around the house with old-stand trees provides it with plenty of privacy and peacefulness, especially because of the 400-yard lake-shore access. There is no traffic because it is at the end of a country cul-de-sac lane.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage gives vactioners a chance to spend time in an absolutely quiet place away from home. I recently had the opportunity to visit the cottage and loved the feeling of security and seclusion it gave me. Bird-watching, fishing, some swimming and barbecuing, but also reading and painting here are the highlights. I have enjoyed the Mid-Western Rodeo in Manawa in July and have seen some of the old cars that are shown at the Iola Car Show. Green Bay is worth a trip for many reasons. The Wisconsin Dells, too. I furnished the cottage in 2005 from some of the local stores but especially from the antique shops in New London and Waupaca. For antique lovers there is also the big Osh Kosh show. Manawa is a convenient distance from the Outagamie Airport in Appleton and not a bad drive from Chicago, where I can enjoy the Windy City before taking off to Switzerland or California.
