About Frank

I have lived on the water for many years. My son and I try to get out every nice day during the summer.

Frank purchased this cottage in 1986

Why Frank chose Stoughton

Lake Kegonsa is still undiscovered. Great fishing and water sports. It is a short drive to all the fun that Madison offers.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a uncrowded lake close to Madison. Water fun is right out your door. Kayak, paddleboat, fishing and pontoon boat rentals. Boat dockage on the pier is free.

Great Sunrise!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I from high school stayed here for our annual Girls Weekend. I agree with what others have said in their reviews. The place was very clean and Frank was great throughout the process. The pictures are accurate except for the living room. I was pleasantly surprised to find a big screen TV. It only took us about 15 minutes to get to the Madison Farmers Market on Saturday. We arrived at 8am and were glad we did. By 10am it was packed and hard to move. Thankfully, we were just leaving. We enjoyed the Koffee Kup for breakfast and enjoyed the unique lunch/dinner menu and the food was great at Wendigo's in Stoughton. A few of my friends are considering coming back with their children and grand children. Sunday morning I was lucky enough to wake up at 6:15am to a beautiful sunrise. The vibrant pink and orange surrounding the lake was beautiful. There was a low fog along the edge of the lake and plenty of big fish jumping. Great way to end the weekend.

Cabin 1 - One bedroom, lake view

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rustic retreat. The cabin is very small, but clean and well maintained. The kitchen is adequately stocked with utensils and has a full size refrigerator. The resort has free wi fi. The setting is ideal with a perfect deck view to the lake below. Frank is an excellent host who knows the lake and local restaurants, etc. The entire resort is beautifully landscaped and surprisingly private for the density. We brought our own boat and were able to tie up to one of the piers. Only one criticism, the full size bed needs a new mattress and springs. We plan to return and stay longer next year.

Stayed Oct 3 and Oct 4, 2014

  • 5 of 5

Sorry it has been a while to get on this site... but here is my review of this resort... IT WAS OUTSTANDING... can't wait to go back. The resort owner was a down to earth and personable on site owner.... very eager to help out and was available day or night... The view from the big house was pretty decent but it is a long down hill walk to the water (yep... you have to walk up hill on the way back)... but don't worry about that... there are cabins right on the water if you want them. The cabins are close to each other but they are far enough away to give you the feeling of privacy.. The owner told me he has had clients that have come back, year after year for the past twenty years... and meeting him and staying at the resort......... not only do I believe him... I plan on being one of those clients. Stay overnight there (if you can get in).. you will want to go back. Cabin #4 ("The big house") is at street level but has an upstairs... the "Street level" has a bedroom and two bathrooms on that level, as well as the kitchen, dining room, living room, deck and screened in porch (that you can see the lake from). If you have a physical disability/heart condition or other ailment, this would be the house for you to check out on the website. It is close to Halverson's restaurant and other amenities.....

We Loved This Place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I currently live in Singapore, but decided to come back and visit the US this past summer. As we live a very urban daily life, we wanted our two kids to experience cottage life and found this cabin on VRBO. We spent a month here, splitting our time between this cottage and the other 3-bedroom cottage, the Boathouse, and found that both cottages exceeded our expectations!

To start, the cottages were both extremely comfortable and well set-up, especially the kitchens. We found that they had everything that we needed to cook at-home meals all summer. They both came with air con, though we found that the ceiling fans were enough for us. The beds were very comfortable, there were more than enough bathrooms for everyone and we loved having washers/dryers right in the cottage.

The lake is beautiful and there are enough activities to keep us occupied- we recommend renting the kayaks and the pontoon boat. There are also adult bikes for rent that looked great. Our kids loved the sandbox/swing set/slide area that is available for children staying in the resort.

The location is amazing! Stoughton is a small, charming town and the city of Madison is only a 20-minute drive. If you have kids, there are some amazing places to take them: in Stoughton, there is a man-made swimming lake and beach called Troll Beach, which our kids loved, as well as a very nice public library with a great section for kids and a petting zoo nearby; Madison has a fantastic children's' museum, and the Wisconsin Dells are an hour away. If you like shopping, there are two outlet malls that are both within an hour's drive.

Frank, the owner, could not be nicer and he was so helpful and kind to us during our entire visit. He is always available when needed to answer questions or give advice on places to visit.

I cannot recommend this place enough, and we hope to return and stay again in the future!
