Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

A Slice of Heaven is the UPPER unit in an original 1880's two family 'cottage' home. My sister-in-law also owns/rents the LOWER unit therefore we are always willing to rent the entire home as an additional option. I have refurbished and redecorated the entire upper unit. It is filled with local antiques and art, as well as inviting skylights in the kitchen, bath and living area which create a unique tree house effect. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything from wine glasses to an ice cream scooper. You will also find an IPOD speaker system to play your favorite music.

The bedrooms host 'heavenly' beds with the finest of linens to include memory foam beds, soft cotton sheets and down comforters not to mention stunning sitting chairs for that moment of peace at the end of the day. The spacious living room has northern exposure as well as eastern and western skylights which boast endless sun at all times of the day. The original 1X8 wood ceiling has been exposed to add to the cottage/chalet effect of the home. Here you will find spacious room for entertaining or sitting quietly and watching a movie on the flat screen.

The house sits equal distance from the private beach and the village restaurants, shops and local market. It is less than a two minute walk due east to the village or due west to the beach. We are also adjacent to three popular lakefront resorts, minutes to world renowned golf courses, the Kettle Moraine National Forest, and popular fishing spots. *We are just miles from the Road America Race Track and 15 miles from the Kohler golf courses.

About Leslie A. Paulsen

I am a native of Plymouth, WI and grew up spending the weekends swimming in Elkhart Lake. I have been a resident of Atlanta, GA since 1991; however I have always enjoyed my visits home. As I matured I realized that Elkhart Lake had everything to offer me as a lifelong vacation destination to include the lake, bicycling, hiking, wonderful restaurants and simply good people walking in the village. It's a charming place to be during any month of the year. I consider Lake St my 2nd home and visit at least every 6 weeks; therefore I am always fine tuning both the interior and exterior of my home.

Leslie A. Paulsen purchased this condo in 2010

Why Leslie A. Paulsen chose East Central

My brother owns the lower vacation rental unit and the rest of my family is nearby. I have traveled the world and found that Elkhart Lake is one of the most beautiful and inviting places I have known during my life. The people are special; the weather delightful and the seasons simply spectacular - even WINTER!

What makes this condo unique

I am a road cyclist and the area offers endless cycling on the road and trails. The Kettle Moraine National Forest is a five minute drive from the house and offers hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and horseback riding trails. The lakes are some of the best in the nation for fishing; while they are clear and very swimmable lakes. The proximity to the Road America Race Track as well as some of the very best golf in the United States is phenomenal!

Great little gem!

  • 5 of 5

Host: Leslie was extremely accommodating, helpful suggestions on things to do - really putting in full effort to make you feel like this is your own home during your stay!

Digs: located beautifully in the middle of the "downtown" area of Elkhart! Total walk ability for everything from restaurants - farmers market - coffee - lake :)

The house is fully equipped with amenities! Everything you need is already there, just in case you forgot to pack it all. Beds are very comfy, I slept really well -- we all did.

I will definitely stay here again, in fact I look forward to it! Well done Leslie! Thank you...

Kettle morain is close by - great for nature seekers !

We love it here!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we've come to this little slice of heaven right on Lake Street. I was skeptical when Leslie told me she'd made some improvements and updated the entryway because there was absolutely nothing wrong with it the first time we were there, but nothing is left undone; she has a very high standard here! I come with my husband and his parents, and we shop for food and cook and sit on the deck and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. We come for events at the Road America racetrack, but this year I've spent more time wandering around Elkhart lake, checking out the farmer's market for the freshest salad greens, and thinking up fun things to cook with the goodies I find at the local markets...the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to make great meals, and if you're lucky enough to get a reservation, the Paddock Club and Lake Street Cafe are just a few doors up. Oh ... and Gesserts Ice Cream has re-opened under new management and has two different brands of Wisconsin ice cream, as well as fudge made on site. But I digress. If you're thinking about a visit to Elkhart Lake, live like the locals and book this place now! You will thank me :)

Make it a tradition.

  • 5 of 5

After years of staying in one of the lakeside hotels, we decided to try VRBO. We lucked out finding this slice of heaven. It has everything we need for bike race weekend. The space is comfortable, stylish, and completely supplied. The roof top deck is the icing on the cake for post time gatherings. We enjoy walking to the great local shops, eateries, and the perfectly clear lake! We return every year, and it feels like home.

Elkhart Lake Charmer

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this beautiful upstairs apartment over Memorial weekend. We felt like we were in the treetops thanks to skylights in the living room. Just minutes away from the beautiful lake and local restaurants. We look forward to a return visit next year. Leslie keeps the property in tip top shape!
