It's open living and dining area features lovely lake & island views with the dining table positioned near the windows to encourage relaxation with a cup of coffee, watching the wildlife or enjoying a lingering family dinner by the lake.

Bedroom 1 features a queen size bed, bedroom 2 features a double bed and extra long twin bed. There is a queen size sofa sleeper in the living area also.

The owners enjoy cooking and entertaining so the kitchen is roomy and well equipped. Plenty of dishes, utensils, glassware, pots, pans and bake ware. Small Kitchen appliances include a microwave, toaster, coffee maker(with filters) blender, electric hand mixer, crock pot, mini food processor, Belgian waffle maker, pancake griddle and electric fry pan.

Enjoy peaceful lake views, fish or swim off the dock, kayak, canoe and watch the scenic wildlife or boat a short distance thru the nearby channel for water skiing on Rainbow Lake.

Situated in the village of King, 'Enchanted Way Cottage' is tucked away on a quiet lakeside street just a block or two from several unique shops, restaurants, bars, antique shops and a marina. At nearby 'Clear water Harbor' one can take in a cruise on the historic 'Chief Waupaca' paddle wheel boat, Watch your kids play on the playground while enjoying hand scooped ice cream, enjoy a beverage with full menu service, dance to live music on weekends or simply watch a sunset on their waterfront deck.

The historic Grand Army Home (built just after the Civil War) is a short walk from the cottage and features beautiful walking paths along the lake and a museum.

'Enchanted Way Cottage' is within a 5 minute drive to the city of Waupaca where you can shop for antiques, gifts, eat, visit the farmers market in the town square or take in a movie at the vintage theater.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Larry and Linda purchased 'Enchanted Way Cottage' as a gathering spot for our grown children and expanding family. Linda knows what a hidden gem the Chain O' Lakes area is first hand having grown up there with wonderful memories of small town life and summers on 'The Chain'. Waupaca has changed a lot over the years with a wider variety of restaurants,grocery stores and fast food chains, but you can still take in a good ol' Wisconsin fish fry or slice of homemade pie. We hope you love visiting as much as our family does!
