About the Property
2 Bedrooms (and a loft with a log futon) 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps up to 8
NEW OUTDOOR ALL CEDAR RUSTIC 6-PERSON STEAM SPA FOR THE ULTIMATE IN RELAXATION!
Are you looking for a crowded water skiing lake? Loud neighbors you can see from your deck? A busy lake with lots of boats? A lot so small you can't even throw a football on? No birds or nature to enjoy?
**THEN THIS IS NOT YOUR PLACE!**
As it says in many of the reviews, if you ARE looking for 'stress free solitude,' a 'warm and peaceful' place to vacation, and a property to enjoy nature and privacy on a secluded lake that is still close to restaurants and town, then this IS the place.
Welcome to the Blackberry Lodge! A spacious log cabin built entirely by a local Amish family on 7 PRIVATE WOODED ACRES of paradise with a no wake crystal clear lake, no neighbors in sight, a beautiful sand bottom stream winding through the property, and park like trails for you to enjoy nature the way it should be. Charmingly named for the abundance of flowering and fragrant blackberry bushes throughout the property, Blackberry Lodge is nestled in a beautiful forest on a ridge overlooking the lake. It is peaceful beyond imagination and INCREDIBLY private. So private, in fact, unless you leave the property you may not even see another person during your stay except for the people in your group. You get this incredibly secluded private spot hidden in a serene forest yet Blackberry Lodge lodge is less than 5 minutes away from town where you can enjoy great restaurants, cute shops, golf courses, and everything else!
IF by chance you ever do want to leave for a short time (but you may never want to) we are SO CLOSE (just a just couple miles) from quaint little downtown Wautoma. Cute shops, restaurants, grocery stores, farmers markets, coffee shops, a nice wine bar, Amish country, and friendly people! Wisconsin Dells is only 1.5 hours away. Two great 18 hole public course are less than 5 minutes away. And Big Silver Lake (a full waterski lake) is one mile away with a public boat landing. Its like you are in the middle of nowhere without being in the middle of nowhere!
No deposit required, no charges for use of our canoe, paddle boat, kayak, rowboat, outdoor games (bean bag toss, horseshoes), indoor games (FOOSBALL, Electric DARTS, board games). NO cleaning fees. Also included 'FREE' of charge: incredible lake views, wildlife (birds including blue jays, robins, red headed wood peckers, oriols, also ducks, deer, turkey, squirrels, turtles, frogs, geese, sand hill cranes, loons, to name a few), star gazing at night (this is AMAZING!), use of our well groomed trails and sand bottom stream winding through our property to EXPLORE, use of our custom limestone fire pit and seating area for amazing bon fires....and so much more!!
Bonus room with a log wood finished bar and electronic darts and foosball table!
Perfect for families with small children or teenagers, a romantic getaway, adventure seekers, a girls long weekend escape, a boys fishin' and grillin' weekend, nature lovers, a lake retreat, a place to let your dogs run 'free', or those just looking to 'get away from it all' in a quiet, secluded location!

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We are a family of four with children 14 and 17 who love to camp, enjoy nature, fish, and hike. I have a sales and marketing job and my wife is what we call a 'domestic engineer' raising our two wonderful children. We originally purchased this property so we could enjoy a 'home away from home' as a place to camp with friends and family. Everyone who visits falls in love with the privacy, nature, wildlife, lake and stream, and peaceful setting. We made the decision in 2012 to build a Amish log cabin and share 'Blackberry Lodge' with you, our new friends, so you can also experience the tranquility and beauty of the property that we have for the last 6 years.
Why the Owner Chose Wautoma, WI, USA:
Blackberry Lodge is like your own PRIVATE park in the woods. Its peaceful beyond imagination and just what you need to 'get away from it all.' You will not find another property like it. I promise!
