About Donny

We are a fun-loving family. We live in downtown Milwaukee and love the city cultural life. We also love to get away and spend time with our family and friends.

Donny purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Donny chose Oconto

This cottage has a lot of family history. My mom and dad picked out this property for its beautiful, sandy waterfront, secluded woods, and easy drive from Milwaukee (2 1/2 hours with a stop). Having a nearby small town (Oconto) and larger city (Green Bay) offered a variety of activities, attractions, and shopping.

What makes this cottage unique

Morning coffee on the lakefront deck in the morning is our favorite time (sometimes sunrise). A huge variety of birds (Herons, Pellicans, Cranes, Eagles) frequently fly close by. Evenings often end with a fireside (campfire pit) chat, and star gazing.

Bat Problem

  • 1 of 5

I vacationed at this cottage with my daughter and her family. Initially, when we walked in we loved it! Spacious, clean, great view of the water, especially at night when the moon was shining on the lake. The first morning we were there we saw what we thought was mouse droppings on the floor. We quickly swept them up because we had a one year old toddling around who would pick up anything off the floor and put it in his mouth. As the day went on we continued to see the droppings even after sweeping many times. We quickly realized these were not mouse droppings, but bat droppings. The bat guano(dropping) was falling through the slats in the ceiling. Many family members heard the bats in the rafters and we were sweeping up the guano all week long. If it was just me at the cottage I would have left. But, there were others who wanted to stay. So, we stayed the week. With all the bat guano we were sweeping up all week I can only assume this is a long standing problem. Thankfully, no bat was seen, only heard.

Owner's Response: Thanks fot the quick notice Lucy. As discussed by phone and text, this was taken care of right after checkout. This has not at all been a long term problem (not other reviews). We simply needed to caulk up a newly formed crevice in the large beam wood structure near their OUTSIDE roost spot. They were NOT in the cottage. We hope to have you back :). Cheers, Donny

Great getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay!

Awesome location on the Bay!

Only drawback to the entire property is the driveway is a bit challenging to back full-size trucks and 21 ft boats into.... but, that will affect very few people ever... we did just fine..

Very well stocked and extremely quiet place to get away from it all...

Owner's Response: Thanks Stephen: we're glad you enjoyed our cottage. We spoke to a close neighbor to arrange for future multiple, large boat parking. Fishing tournament groups can still use our property, but now have an easier option. He has short, very wide drive with power hookups.

Peaceful and private

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week. The cabin is very well kept and you can tell there is a pride of ownership from the owners. We saw all sorts of wildlife and really enjoyed our time on the lake. There's perch and rock bass directly under the pier, and many great fishing spots sprinkled throughout Oconto (the breakwater point was our favorite). Thank you Donny for everything, and we will be back!

Cottage is better than described. We’ve been coming here ever summer for the past 5 years. Each year is a big and better experience with nature.

Straight shot down Hwy 41 gets you to Lambeau Field. Packer fans have really enjoyed our place to hang our with friends and family over a game weekend. All you need for cooking, grilling, and having fun is all there.
