About Alicia Patterson

My wife and I wanted to choose the best location for our family and yours to spend together. We decided to pick the perfect spot for our family which lead us to Lake Petenwell, located just one exit North of Wisconsin Dells. Our home, Sunset Lodge is great for all year round activities including atving, fishing, campfires, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and breath taking sunsets.

Alicia Patterson purchased this lodge in 2001

Wonderful time

We had a weekend getaway with friends. 10 adults 8 kids. Plenty of room. Kids swam basically from 8 am to 8 pm. We all loved the outdoors hot tub.

Vacation at Sunset Lodge

We enjoyed the indoor pool and the hot tub. The place was immaculate and Karen was more than accommodating.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

  • 3 of 5

First the good: The house is great for a large group. Karen, the caretaker, was very helpful in explaining all the amenities, and there are many. But the pool is by far the winner as we had 7 children ranging in age from 2 to 17 and they were in it a lot. It certainly met the two most important qualities for me - quiet and clean. We have stayed, as a family of 15 or so, in several VRBOs and the “great room” here has comfortable seating for ten or more; not something you find in all homes. Plentyof hot water, dishes and silverware etc. for all.

The “Bad” The pictures are outdated by, I would guess, several years. No beach and the dock now has a covered place for a boat. No big deal as there is a bear rug on the ceiling in the great room and most of what is there is what you get. But the house is showing some need for minor maintenance; shade pulls off track in the master bedroom causing some problems, dish washer didn’t always get everything clean, but all in all not a big problem.

The Ugly

Petenwell lake is on the Wisconsin DNR site as one having problems with blue-green algae and it kept us from enjoying the lake at the waterfront and actually being outdoors. I guess because the house is on the west side of the cove the algae accumulates on that shore and by the time we left it looked like a carpet of green about as far out as we could see. AND, it stinks which is why I mention not being able to enjoy being outdoors. We also could not fish from the dock as others had mentioned for that reason. Truly a shame for us and I would think even more so for the owners of any house on that shore. Apparently it is a problem for many miles in the Wisconsin river. Check a link to the WI DNR for more info.

Fun for all ages!

  • 4 of 5

We gathered to celebrate my mother in law's 85 birthday with 22 family members from ages 1 year to 85 years old. The pictures do not do this cabin justice. You must see it. (Although the pictures must have been taken awhile ago because for example there is no longer a's now rock) There is something for everyone to do from the beautiful lake front view, to the pool, to the hot tub, to the pool table, to a tv in EVERY room! There was plenty of room for everyone!

The house is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we had hoped for and more! Absolutely every possible need is covered...plenty of kitchen supplies, pool toys, more than enough towels, so much space! The house was extremely clean, very well decorated, and all beds were very comfortable! Communication with groundskeeper and owners was outstanding, replies were almost immediate via email and/or phone. Our annual family women's weekend was a success in large part due to the house! We will definitely be coming back! I highly recommend to families, especially with young children. Our stay was during the winter and the indoor pool and outdoor hot tub make for great entertainment! I can't imagine how wonderful this place is in the summer with being on the lake.

Adult Getaway Feb 16th -18th

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing weekend! They have everything at the house you could ask for to make you vacation enjoyable. The house also felt like you were at home which is always a plus. There were plenty of things to do to keep everyone entertained we talked about booking again next year!
