The 'Boathouse' doesn't shelter watercraft anymore, but it does provide a wonderful home on the shore of 3000 acre Lake Kegonsa. It is located in a country setting, but is only 15 minutes from downtown Madison Wisconsin, 20 minutes from the airport, and 2 hours from Chicago's O'Hare airport. Lake Kegonsa (lake of many fishes) is one of the four large lakes starting in Madison and is generally unknown and uncrowded.
The cedar sided Boathouse is at water's edge, three levels of spectacular, never ending views. The top level has the master bedroom, queen bed,2 twin beds, and a full bathroom. Walking by the Weber charcoal grill and crossing the deck takes you into the middle level, with living and dining areas,a gas fireplace, washer/dryer,full bathroom, and a well stocked kitchen. Plenty of pots and pans, dishware, dishwasher, micro, coffeepot, etc. The bottom or lake level has one bedroom with two twin beds, and another bedroom with a queen bed, and a full bathroom. All levels have great sunrise over the lake views.There is a big screen tv in the living area and 2 smaller ones in the bedrooms. WiFi is free.Central air and heat throughout. No pets are allowed.Located at rated #1 Crown Point Resort, the Boathouse also has the VRBO highest rating.
Bring your boat! There is a long pier right out the door that provides bumpers for tie up. The boat launch is 5 minutes away. Gas and bait are also close. For our guests only, we rent 2 small fishing boats with motors,a 9 person pontoon boat, 6 kayaks,4 single and 2 doubles, and a paddle boat. As we don't have a sandy beach, most everyone swims off the end of the pier and swim raft. The lake bottom is rocky or sandy. No drop offs or muck. We have other size lake cottages for rent. Call any day 8-6.No pets are allowed. This is not a party house. No bachelor or bachelorette parties.
Madison has been recognized as one of the premier places to live. The best farmers market in the US, outdoor music, free zoo, art fairs, and great restaurants are minutes away. Our little town Stoughton, has one of the largest Norwegian communities settled in the country, and offers a historic downtown with art and antiques, shopping, and festivals.
