Set on more than 12 beautiful acres of trees and prairie nestled in the heart of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, leave your worries behind and feel yourself relax in this country home with all the modern amenities.
Conveniently located just 20 miles outside Lake Geneva, and less than 5 miles from Lauderdale Lakes the choices are yours.

Cross country skiing in the Kettle Moraine or downhill skiing at Alpine Valley are minutes away from our back door.
Or best of all, sit and enjoy the scenery, hiking, biking, snowmobiling and horse back riding on the Kettle Moraines' miles of trails. You will find 'more than 20,000 acres of glacial hills, kettles, lakes, prairie restoration sites, pine woods' in the Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine. Golf, fishing, spas, restaurants...the possibilities are endless!!!
Escape from the ordinary, find the extraordinary. And EXHALE!
**PLEASE NOTE: if you are searching for a party headquarters please do not book our home. We do not allow overnight guests other than those listed in the rental information nor do we sponsor large gatherings (weddings, graduation parties, etc). I am sure there are plenty of places that can sponsor those events for you - we are not it. Our maximum guest count is strictly enforced.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: This home is our family retreat. There is no touch of an 'institutional' feel anywhere. Our family and extended family spends a lot of time here and we want to share this truly unique and serene experience with those that can appreciate some time away from the rat race. We are VERY kid friendly...but also an ideal destination for a romantic weekend for 2!
Why the Owner Chose Whitewater, WI, USA:
The Kettle Moraine State Forest's Southern Unit is unique and beautiful. It is also easily accessible to the greater Chicagoland AND the greater Milwaukee areas. The truly amazing thing is all that is available within a short distance - cycling (on and off road), hiking, horseback riding, boating, shopping, spas cross country skiing, etc etc etc. Boredom should NEVER be an issue.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
More than 20,000 acres of glacial hills, kettles, lakes, prairie restoration sites, pine woods and hardwood forests can be found in the Southern Unit, making this a popular area for a wide variety of visitors. The 3,500-acre Scuppernong River Habitat Area is the largest wet prairie east of the Mississippi River. You can enjoy all of this but still sleep in (very) comfortable beds and have access to a well equipped kitchen (and central air conditioning)!
