We just returned from a week-long visit to this magnificent compound with our six kids, ages 5-15. Oh my... what an absolute treat! The house is perfectly remodeled, the kitchen had everything we needed, the grounds are just incredible and FUN , and we had such a blast in the pool and on the lake. Thank you so much, Colleen, for a truly wonderful week of beautiful family time!!!

Perfect Wisconsin Lake Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A delightful week! For the ten of us, 8 adults and 2 children, this beautiful home set on a lovely lake was more than we expected! The comfortable large bedrooms and the large updated private baths for each were appreciated by everyone. The common areas were light, airy, and ample, and our family was able to eat together inside and out!! Fully equipped with all kitchen items, serving pieces, dishes, and supplies, the home lacked nothing we needed. We were encouraged to help ourselves to the garden produce, lettuce and spinach, obviously, a great bonus!

The pool was an extra treat, but the lake offered hours of relaxation and fun, swimming, kayaking, canoeing!!

The grounds were lovingly cared for, very large, with a great lake front, a most relaxing setting, without a doubt, a place to build memories for all of us!

Kudos also to John and his dog Tucker who were available to answer any questions we had.

The only bad part was that week was over -- with all of us agreeing: "Let's come back here again!!"

4 Families Stayed and Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 families stay and each family had 1 bedroom, and even had one bedroom for all the kids! We had such a fabulous time, and made lots of memories.

We had 5 children ranging from 7 to 15. We brought our own boat, and did plenty of tubing and water skiing on the lake. Lots of swimming in the pool, and in the lake. We did plenty of fishing too.

John and his dog Tucker were wonderful. He is SUCH a nice person, and his dog was very friendly. He would collect wood for us, and help us build a fire, so at nighttime we were all set to go!

The pictures don't do the place justice.

Overall, this is by far the best place we stayed. After so many wonderful days, I was sad when we had to leave. We would DEFINATELY come back.

Owner's Response: We think John and Tucker (caretaker and trusty dog) get as many great reviews as the property does! We particularly appreciate your comment about the pictures not doing the property justice. We intentionally do not post many pictures as we want our guests to be pleasantly surprised when they arrive. Better to under promise and over deliver!

Fabulous week in a great lake house

  • 5 of 5

Four generations of my family joined together for a great week in a quiet lake setting. The in ground pool was in nearly constant use. The house is very comfortable and equipped with everything you need to enjoy a great visit. House was very clean when we arrived. A private bath in every room is really nice! We never left the grounds all week, had plenty to do, enjoyed every minute, and didn't want to leave. We would definitely go again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review! We're happy to share our home and so appreciate those who treat it as their own. It's a unique piece of property and multi-generational gatherings seem to be perfectly suited to the bucolic five acres. Hope you made some great memories!
