Why The Owner chose Wisconsin

Great location just 1/2 hour west of Milwaukee and 45 minutes east of Madison. 5 minutes to beautiful downtown Delafield with numerous dining options as well as great shopping and antiquing. Within 10 minutes of Lapham Peak (a beautiful State Park with lighted cross country ski/hiking trails) as well as Kettle Moraine State Forest with hundreds of miles of hiking trails. Some of the best mountain biking in the state is only 1/2 hour away. Various Golf Course within a 10 mile radius, including Erin Hills for US Open.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented this lake house in June 2010 and everyone had a wonderful time. We took our two teenage daughters and one of their friends with us, and believe me when I say none of us wanted to leave when our trip was over. The girls had a great time fishing, cooking smores over the fire pit, and canoeing. They also enjoyed using the boat house as additional space to talk and enjoy the lake front. The house itself was spotless and very inviting. The view from the master bedroom is breathtaking to say the least. The decks provide a spectacular unobstructed view of the lake which provided hours of relaxing entertainment for all of us. The house is perfectly nestled away in a very quiet community, and yet close enough to other attractions to accommodate everyone’s wishes. For example, one day we went to the Milwaukee County Zoo, another evening we went to the movies, and we even took several trips to downtown Milwaukee where we enjoyed the sounds of Summerfest which claims to be “The World's Largest Music Festival," all just a short distance away from the lake house. One of my favorite memories is sitting quietly with my husband each morning sipping coffee on the deck listening to the birds sing and watching the morning sun glisten off the waters of Lake Okauchee. If you rent this house make sure to take time to meet the neighbors they couldn’t have been nicer.

Perfect Location; Great home with a view.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful! The owners were great with communicating with us. The cozy home is clearly well kept and had everything we could want. No one previously mentioned how comfy the beds were and the awesome view of the lake from the master bedroom!. It house served as a great location for getting together with family in the Milwaukee area. The grocery store and restaurants are nearby. We couldn't ask for anything more.

Peaceful Escape

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for 4 days in mid April in this lovely home, with a great view of the lake. Our stay was very peaceful and restful, with hiking and kayaking as daily activities. We found all of our needs met. The attention to detail that the hosts have paid to this property are very much appreciated. We will definitely return in the future.

Easter weekend was beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful home. It was perfect for our family. It was a gorgeous Easter weekend and the lake is breath taking! The pictures do not do this property justice. Every window is like looking at a piece of art. There is a large bay window in the master bedroom and it looks out onto the lake. On Saturday night there was a lightning storm and I sat up and watched it from this window- it was amazing. The kitchen is fully stocked with nice supplies. The beds were very comfy and had nice linens and covers- the pillows were great also. The house is decorated tastfully. The parking is paved and very spacious too. We hope we get to visit this property again when the weather is warmer! Thank you!

Cute place on the lake

  • 4 of 5

Sadly, we rented in the midst of winter and missed out on the best attributes of the place (lake access) but the accommodations were fine for our needs. Highs include the view from the master over the lake and a very cute kitchen/family area. The property has one bathroom that is a bit tight but it was clean - also you need to bring your own soap/shampoo for the shower. Some steep steps both outside and inside so not a place to consider if you have access issues to worry about.
