About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 17)

We have added many things in the past couple years. New siding, new huge deck, furniture, and best of all a new master bathroom. Come check out our It is located in Wautoma on the northeast shore of the lake, with 175 feet of crystal clear shoreline.

Irogami Lake is a beautiful spring fed lake tucked away on the side of the woods of Washara County. It is a great lake for sailing, boating, fishing, waterskiing, tubing and swimming. The lake is teaming with Large Mouth Bass. Many consider this lake Wausara County's best kept secret for fishing.

The beautiful lot is partly wooded for privacy. It has a gently sloping lawn right down to the edge of the water. There is plenty of room for yard games and lounging. There is a private dock for you to tie your boat or jetski. There is a gorgeous view of the lake from the three tiered deck. With the size of the deck it is a favorite place for our guest to lounge, play cards, or sit and read a book.

Enjoy the warm sunsets around the bonfire just feet away from the lake. This getaway has the feel of the northern woods without the hours of travel time. Graced by tall pines, oak, and evergreen trees, our home is a incredible place to get away from the busy world.

Wake in the morning to a cup of coffee and and a chair waiting for you on the pier. Settle in at night around a roaring bonfire with s'mores or favorite beverage.

Our home is wonderfully furnished. The great room has a vaulted ceiling, a large stone fireplace, and plenty of comfortable seating. Settle in with a game of cards with the guys or stretch out on the chaise lounge with your favorite book. The dining area is spacious with a custom made table that seats up to 12. Also provided is a 51' television set with satelite dish to watch sporting events or chill out with a movie on the DVD player.

The newly furnished kitchen is completely up to date and has brand new appliances including a dishwasher, range and electric oven, and a microwave oven. We also have a second full size refrigerator for overflow foods and beverages. All that is needed for serving is conveniently provided, including dishes, glassware, silverware, serving pieces, cooking utensils, and small appliances.

We have a large extended family so we took everything into consideration when planning the bedrooms. Over looking the lake is the master bedroom on the first floor which has a king size bed with a 32' HD television set. The other bedroom on the first floor has a double bed and 2 twins that also overlook Irogami Lake. In my opinion, the best asset of the cottage is the second floor. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs. The first is a bunk room that has 2 single/double bunks and a trundle bed. Another two bedrooms have a queen bed in each, and finally a fourth room that has three single beds. There is plenty of room for the kids upstairs but also some privacy for the adults! Some homes on VRBO and other sites boast of sleeping arrangments and when you get there you may be greatly disappointed with the lack of sleeping space. At our home, all 17 of you will have a great night sleep in a comfortable bed. There are a total of 14 beds in the cottage.

Within five minutes there are two great golf courses for a total of 45 holes of golf. Both courses are beautiful and challenging. Wautoma has also a beautiful downtown area that brings you back to they way life used to be. Stoneridge Market is known for their great cuts of steak and a variety of resturants and pubs coat the downtown area.

Why Chris McGalloway chose Wautoma

We coin this vacation spot 'Hour Getaway' because it is a short hour drive from our home in Fond du Lac. It is centrally located with Appleton, Stevens Point, Oshkosh, and Wausau all within an hour's drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay was wonderful. Your house was soooo much better than the house we rented last year. I can't even begin - we had so much room to spread out and relax, it was great. If we could have taken your dining table home with us, well, we would have. It was so nice to sit down with the whole family around one table and have dinner every night. And to have room in the kitchen to prepare dinner each night (and snacks throughout the day).

We loved your house, and would highly recommend it to others. The location and the property are great, and everything was as stated in the listing. The beds were comfortable, the extra refrigerator was a savior, we didn't use the downstairs much because we had great weather but if it had rained I'm sure that would have been a blessing.

Thank you,
Jul 2013

Good times with north woods feel!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a fantastic week in this house! The great room was spacious with lots of comfortable seating and great views of the lake. The Direct TV was nice and there was a good selection of DVD's and games to play.

We loved the big wood kitchen table with more great lake views. The kitchen was well stocked and included an electric skillet, crock pot and waffle maker. We definitely appreciated the use of the extra refrigerator!

The large bedrooms were nice and three bathrooms was a definite plus, especially with six teenage girls! Bath and beach towels were provided.

The deck was great with nice furniture and a propane fire pit. Also a nice fire pit in the yard with adirondack chairs. The swim dock wasn't in the water yet, but wasn't needed. We all enjoyed the kayaks and being able to see into the clear water.

The dock was a great size allowing us to tie-off a ski and fishing boat with room to spare. The hammock built into the dock was also appreciated and well used.

The lake itself is shallow, but we had no trouble tubing, knee boarding and skiing. This lake is not busy and that was a huge plus. Also good fishing, caught Bluegill, Large Mouth Bass and Rock Bass.

We did have a large storm roll through and lost power for about eighteen hours. The owner was responsive and offered to bring us food and water, but it wasn't needed. We enjoyed this beautiful home and would stay again!

The house is very clean, roomy and well stocked with silverware, serving utensils, dishes, appliances, pots pans, sheets towels, pots and pans, dvds, books and games for 16 people - wow. The deck is big with nice furniture and a propane fire pit and great view of the lake. The water is shallow and has a sandy bottom - great for little ones. The air hockey and ping pong in the basement are another hit. There is plenty of firewood around a nice fire pit. There was ample parking for our five cars. The location is remote enough to feel like the north woods. We will be back.
