Overview

About the property

2 Bed Room 1 Bath Lake Front Home- I do not list on CRAIGSLIST; only this site

I DO NOT LIST THIS CABIN ON CRIAGSLIST THERE ARE SCAMS GOING ON RIGHT NOW ON CRAIGSLIST. DO NOT BOOK THIS CABIN ON CL Located directly on a lake but in a country setting, it is only 10 minutes from downtown Madison Wisconsin, 20 minutes from the airport, and 2 hours from Chicago's O'Hare airport. Lake Waubesa is one of the four lakes in Madison, known as the best fishing lake. Barbecue and relax on the deck while being secluded from the wind! Enjoy fabulous morning sunrises over the lake.

The log cabin is located on the lake. One level ranch has 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom. One bedroom has a queen bed. The 2nd bedroom has a bunk bed with a full bed and twin bed on the top. There is a large living room with lake views and pullout couch. Enjoy eating at the table while looking at the lake. Everything you will need to make your stay complete is provided, from linens, towels, a washer and dryer and condiments in the pantry.

We have a kitchen that is fully equipped with cooking and service ware for up to eight guests as well as new appliances. Plenty of pots and pans, dishware, dishwasher, microwave, coffeepot, and toaster to make eating in easy.

There is an air conditioner and many ceiling fans for the summer and if you are staying in the winter we have heat throughout.

The boat launch is 2 minutes away. For our guests we have canoe. We just added a rustic 65 foot pier for our guests use(will be in the water from mid May to August). Most everyone just walks right in at the lake front to swim. The lake bottom is rocky and/or sandy.

Coming in for a UW game? Want to stay on the lake in a cabin instead of a hotel? We are a 12 minute drive to campus. Coming for IronMan Wisconsin? We are a 5 mile bike ride to the start. Stay in the comfort of a home vs a hotel.

Madison has been recognized as one of the premier places to live. The best farmers market in the US, outdoor music, free zoo, art fairs, and great restaurants are minutes away. We would love to share our city suggestions with you.

Everything was great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! Everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived. We lived sitting out on the deck in the sunshine watching the boats go by. Highly recommend!

Beautifully peaceful cabin on lake Waubesa

  • 5 of 5

I was planning a girls getaway weekend and this cabin was perfect. The cabin was clean, organized, and the amenities were spot on. Nearly everything you could need is provided. The majority of our time was spent on the back deck and pier overlooking the lake. The BBQ grill on the deck worked perfectly and served our dinner needs. The addition of a fire pit made for lovely evenings. Everything was just beautifully taken care of and the area was wonderfully peaceful. Nicole was very helpful and responsive to emails. She was a great host. I would definitely recommend this cabin for your next trip.

Cabin on Lake Waubesa

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four adults just returned from staying at Nicole's Lake Waubesa cabin. The cabin is very comfortable with an amazing view of the lake. We were there to go to the Wisconsin Badgers vs Ohio State game. The location was perfect. We were able to get Uber to pick us up with no issues. Nicole was extremely accommodating in helping us figure out the TV, and heater when we had questions. She called us back promptly and also gave us advice on local eateries. We weren't there long enough to enjoy the nice deck and yard area. The living area is quite large and very comfortable. We would not hesitate to come back to this cozy cabin. Thank you Nicole for your hospitality.

Cozy lake front property close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

This rental was very comfortable. The view of the lake was gorgeous. The house had everything we could have asked for, and it was very easy to get everywhere we needed to be in Madison. I would happily stay here again if I my plans were similar.

Quiet, peaceful lake retreat but near the city

  • 5 of 5

Get the best of 2 worlds. Quiet, peaceful lake near Madison where you can partake of city attractions and then retreat to a restful paradise. The lake is merely steps away from the cottage so a quick dip in the water can be just that - a quick dip in the water. The cottage itself is quaint, with all the modern amenities. Plenty of attractions, restaurants, and things to see in Madison only 15 min. away. We've vacationed here 2 years in a row, and will happily return again in the future. We love feeling like we've come a long way for our vacation because of how remote the lake feels from our home, but it's actually only 2 hours away from the Chicago suburbs.
