About the Property

2 Bed Room 1 Bath Lake Front Home

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.
