Family and pet friendly on Waubeesee Lake!

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 0 - 3 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Quiet lake with beautiful views from the outside patio or lake facing sunroom porch. Enjoy solid sand and rock base lake to walk out in the water and swim. Five feet deep at end of pier and 20 feet deep at swim raft. At night, sit on the pier and watch the moon dance off the water. Fish for pan fish from the pier in the early morning or late day.

Perfect for the grandparents, a comfortable Queen bed in the bedroom on first floor. Other three bedrooms are upstairs. Large bedroom on second floor has King bed and overlooks lake while sun comes up in the morning. Third bedroom has Queen bed while forth bedroom has a Bunk bed. Bathroom with shower and tub are located on both levels.

The house fits up to 6 adults and 4 children comfortably. More than 3 families would be too crowded.

It seems no one is around and it is quiet throughout the week. Usually, the family of swans swim around the lake. While hummingbirds dart through the yard visiting the garden and feeders.

Children can find enough to do playing in the sand and water while you put something delicious on the grill and enjoy a drink in the beautiful breeze. Sit, watch and be amazed at what children can do to fill their time.

Paddle the lake in one of the boats and easily fine nature at work or sit and recall why coming to the lake is so important to family and friends.

Keywords: Gathering house for family and friends on Waubeeseee Lake with swimming and fishing available.

About Jennifer

My family bought this house because we enjoy the lake and the neighborhood. When the children finish school we will retire here full time.

Jennifer purchased this house in 2011

Why Jennifer chose Wind Lake

Waubeesee Lake is secluded enough to feel up like North Wisconsin while it's close enough to Milwaukee and several small towns.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the nature most of all. The kids enjoy the lake. From sun up to sun set it's all about being in the water. We go from one thing to another. We love to fish, swim, snorkle, boat ride, play with the dogs and bike through the neighborhoods.

Great Weekend at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family loved staying here. We are from WI but now live in CO. It was a treat to be at a proper WI lake house. It felt like every lake house I visited as a kid. The house is exactly what we expected. Very comfortable. The sunrises were great over the lake. We enjoyed the row boat and kayaks very much. I could have stayed an extra week or two. Jennifer is a great host. You won't be disappointed!

Wonderful Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 including our two young granddaughters, stayed here in July. This four bedroom lake house was perfect for us! We loved being so close to the water with a patio for dining right at the lake. The home has a smaller kitchen with a pass-through to the large glassed in porch. Plenty of seating for all at the large table on the porch. Enjoyed all the activities including swimming, fishing and kayaking. Rented the pontoon boat for the week and had a blast! We all swam off the boat which our 4 year old granddaughter especially loved. The house is clean and very comfortable. The front entryway also has an extra refrigerator which came in very handy. Jennifer was very welcoming and always available if we needed anything. For a memorable family vacation we would highly recommend this lake home to others.

Family vacation at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

So much here to do at the lake! Swimming, fishing , canoeing, kayaking, campfires, bike trails and a sandbox for the kids! Lovely area with large table for eating meals right by the water! The six swans even joined us one evening.

Thank you Jennifer and family for a special family vacation!

The Swan Nest sits next to the Boathouse, a two bedroom rentable home. Each house has own privacy yet can be rented by friends and families to share vacation.
