Property description

In May 2015 we completed replacement of the kitchen with all new cabinets, solid surface counters, lighting, flooring, all appliances (including full size dishwasher).New flooring in the 1/2 bath and dining area. Some furnishings were replaced as well.

Sand Beach and Great swimming frontage with hard rippled sand bottom on clean and clear 522 acre lake. Both young and old enjoy floating or playing in the water. All water sports are permitted including water skiing and jet skis. Winter snowmobiling trails only 300 feet away in Washington County and nearby Dodge County. Popular ice fishing lake. There are more ice fishing shanties in winter than boats in summer.

We only have this property and one other and clean and care for them ourselves to ensure everything is ready to make those great memories. We wash all sheets as well as duvet covers and blankets as do Hilton Hotels, but we have found that many hotels do not.

One side of your private pier is included in your rental fee through October. Motorized pontoon boats and fishing boats may be rented at nearby (three buildings away) Reef Point Resort. They also have row boats, canoes, and paddle boats, for those looking to get some exercise.

It has Wi-Fi High Speed Internet, 3 TVs with cable, DVD Players, DVD library, 1 vhs players (no tapes though), book library, radio, board games, and a nautical theme throughout.

The home includes all dishes, utensils, linens, bedding, towels, life jackets, water floatation toys, games, Cinderella toy kitchen, toys.

There is also a frog sandbox and sand toys outside. They can entertain the kids for hours. Also there are Little Tyke scooters, a wagon and a car for the kids to use outside.

This home has a lakeside patio with adjustable height charcoal grill, 2 patio tables and chairs, etc.

Home is about 1900 square feet, (more than just a cottage), with central heat and air conditioning. One bedroom is huge with bay window overlooking the lake and a king size bed (probably a new queen bed replacing the king size in 2017) with memory foam top. The second upstairs bedroom has a queen size bed (plus a race car toddler bed) and large windows to enjoy the unobstructed lake views. Race car bed could also be moved to the bedroom with the king or new Queen) bed if you wish. The third bedroom is located on the main level with two twin beds and great lake views. There is also a fullsizr futon on the first floor. There is also a 'Porta Crib' for your youngest sweethearts.

There is very ample paved parking and a large rear grassy yard; lakeside fire pit for campfires; boat launch very nearby (at Reef Point Resort) and Pike Lake State Park across the lake with a beach and great hiking trails (they have maps that tell you how long each route is).

No Smoking! No Cats!

The home you would be renting is the closest building to the lake. The lake side of the home is close to the waters edge, about 30 feet. Don't be fooled by some maps or GPS systems that make it seem far away . That happens because the lot is 397 feet deep and it shows the address as the spot at the road or the center of the lot and not where the house is. It is known as a premier fishing lake in /Southeastern WI and the fishing is great.On 7/14/14 the neighbor caught a 37 in walleye. Even in winter there were over 50 ice fishing shanties at one time. You will love it here if you enjoy catching Walleyes, Bass, Pike, Northern, or pan fish.(Sept.2011 - A renter reported catching a 30 inch Nothhern from the pier in their first three hours there. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) helps out the fish population by stocking. The sun over the Lake and the colors of the sky are awsome on most days. You will probably also enjoy the beautiful fall color in late September and October with the trees at Pike lake State Park directly across the lake. I saw three deer last time I was on a short hike at the park.

Only 20 minutes from Milwaukee with a world class zoo, Betty Brin Childrens Museum as well as Milwaukee Public Museum, Milwaukee Brewer baseball, art galleries, Brewery tours, Pabst mansion tours, Lake Michigan Lakefront and beachs, live theatre,comedy clubs, many ethnic festivals and the largest music fest in the USA - Summerfest, Wisconsin State Fair, etc.

Property is about one hour from Madison, WI; an hour and a quarter from Appleton,WI; and less than two hours from Chicago. Close to Holy Hill Church, about 10 minutes.

If you have ANY questions feel free to call, we are always happy to talk to rental prospects. We actually prefer to talk to you rather than just using e-mail so that we can tailor what is setup to best meet your needs.

Rates for holidays may have a separate Holiday charge please ask for quote.

Additional fees:
Pet fee per day $16 - Will only consider dogs
Cleaning fee is $109
Reservation/Security deposit of $ 400 on stays of a week or less. One third of rent is due with rental agreement (if you are renting the current year), with the remaining balance due two weeks prior to your arrival. If you are renting for a future year only a $400 deposit is required initially.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My wife Bonnie and I live on another lake about 20 minuites away and never get tired of peacefulness that being on a lake provides. We also enjoy the sunrises, ducks, loons and fish. We have many family members in the area and a farm that is still family run in nearby Allenton. Bonnie and I originally purchased this property to be our home but were unable to modify it to meet our needs because of governmental regulations.

Why the Owner Chose Hartford, WI, USA:
This property offers a walk-in sand beach that is very rare for the area, offers a much larger size than typical cottages so as not to feel cramped and caters to families and family gatherings. Winter offers snowmobile trails 300 feet away and ice fishing.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Across the Lake from Pike Lake State Park, large parking areas as well as a large yard, close to waters edge (about 30 feet away).
