About Brian Gruthoff
I grew up in the Fox Cities on the water however have been residing in Boulder, CO since 1984. I purchased the home in 2004 as a second home. My girlfriend and I still have family there however with older children and their busy schedules we are not able to enjoy the property as much as we would like. I renovated the home myself when purchased and have a lot of blood, sweat and tears that have been put into the property. With new wood flooring throughout, drywall, paint and new kitchen I made it my own. It was professionally decorated to give it a cozy, charming lake house feel with elegance and warmth. We hope you enjoy the home as much as we do.

Perfect getaway right on Lake Winnebago
Brian (the owner) clearly takes pride in his house and property, and it shows. The house is a mix of original and well-done updates with plenty of seating. It was also spotless with just about everything we needed for a long weekend with two families. The property is just as pictured with a huge yard, outdoor seating, and long dock - very peaceful and quiet (except for the occasional duck hunter, but sometimes it’s duck season). It’s close to just about everything, and we were able to go to the History Museum at the Castle, a Packers game, Appleton Oktoberfest, Meuer Farm night corn maze, and Mulberry Lane Farm among many other things.
Brian was very accommodating and responsive, and we’d book The Lake House again in a heartbeat.
Beautiful property for a relaxing get-a-way
We had a wonderful 3 day stay. The view was as shown in the property information. House was very comfortable [felt like home] with all the necessary needs available. The kitchen was well supplied, linens were great quality, sleeping and gathering areas were well arranged. There is something for everyone. We will most definitely consider this property for another visit.
Perfect place for summer family gathering
7 of us adults stayed for 2 nights while in the area for a family wedding. It was just perfect and we only wished we were staying for a week. The lovely home was very cozy and confortable, the kitchen very well equipped. We were able to gather around a campfire with several family members, enjoyed grilling outside. Brian was a responsive and helpful host. We didn’t have time to get into or onto the lake this time around. We’ll just have to come back!
We truly enjoyed it for the 2nd year in a row.
Cottage feel with all the amenties of home. Love the waterfront. Large water area for the smaller ones to play. Nice campfire setup. Large deck.
My family and I loved the setting of this cottage. WE had all the conveniences we needed if we chose to eat at home. The BBQ worked perfectly on the deck. The kitchen was well stocked with everything for cooking etc. We were lucky and had beautiful weather, so the amount of air conditioning that we needed was just perfect. If we had any questions, the owners were accessible and helpful. There was ample towels and linens and the beds were comfortable. We would go back to this property without any hesitation and we hope to do so someday. Sarah from Idaho
The house is located on the north side of the lake in a quiet neighborhood with neighbors who were friendly. You are close to everything you need but the area is quiet. Owner was responsive to any concerns and offered suggestions regarding restaurants in the area. The owner checked with us a few times to make sure we had no issues with the house. The owner offered advice relative to how and where to catch walleye. Kids were able to catch some fish from the dock. The house has everything you need and was clean. The house had a canoe and paddle boat as well as bicycles for our use. We used the grill and enjoyed smores on the fire in the rear yard near the lake. Thanks alot Brian!
