About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 adults, a couple of small kids)

ROCK RIVER RENTALS... Why drive all day burning up tanks of gas when you can experience the beauty and atmosphere of Wisconsin, located only 90 minutes from O’Hare!

Our modern, two bedroom plus loft, rental property sits on a bluff overlooking the scenic Rock River. Sit on the 1000 square foot deck with a bird's eye view of one of the best stretches this river has. Barbecue or watch the boats go by and soak in nature at its best. Walk down to our private dock and try your luck fishing.

Pontoons are available to rent in the area if you would like to spend a day on the Lake- the third largest lake in Wisconsin but yet still unknown to most people. Excellent boating if you have one! tubing, jet skiing, water boarding water-skiing, fishing, etc. on both the river and lake.

This home features central air, 2 TV's with one DVD player in main room and dish network. Fully stocked kitchen with breakfast bar, stove, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Linens, towels, everything included! Big deck with lounge chairs and dining area and private fire pit. Six person maximum and house-broken dogs are welcome. Second room features a loft, perfect for the kids, or the fun-loving adult.

Nearby: Authentic Wisconsin pubs and supper clubs, golf courses, hiking trails, dog park, antique shops and a full service spa for the women of the house.

Nearby day trips: Madison (Badger games?), House on the Rock, Cave in the Mounds, Wisconsin Dells, Kettle Moraine, Devils Lake/Devils Head, and many quaint small Wisconsin towns.

DOGS OK with an extra fee! Inquire with me.

We prefer to use PAYPAL for payment or a personal check is ok. No CC's at this time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From where this place was to where it is now is like night and day. It has been freshly painted, has a new septic system, new carpeting, Directv (Nobody in Edgerton has Directv on the river, ha, I removed a branch or two to get a signal!) and has a new range. The maintenance staff and cleaning person have done a remarkable job and with a few more tweaks, this will be a perfect getaway from Chicago, Milwaukee, anywhere.

Great River Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a long weekend. The newer pictures were spot on. It was nicely kept and clean. We were happy overall with our stay and the quietness of the location! We loved being right on the river and with a little creativity, were able to dock our 25' pontoon on the dock to enjoy the lake. It's about a 10 minute cruise up river to the lake, which is a nice little cruise!

The only thing that isn't listed in the description right off is the nice uphill walk from the cottage to the parking area and road and the river to the cottage. It was doable even with our twin toddlers, but surely made things more interesting!

The owner is great to work with and responds very quickly to emails. He answered all of our questions and was very patient with all of my emails! :)

We will definitely be trying to rent here again!

Great relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

2nd year in a row we have stayed here & couldn't be happier. Very quiet and scenic with a great deck overlooking the river. I know I wrote a review last year but just felt I had to say again, how much we enjoyed our stay again. For fisherman or boaters there is a free launch just slightly down river and across it. We put our boat in Saturday and with the dock didn't have to take it out till the following Friday. Short distance to the lake too. Hope to continue to stay here

Nice fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I wanted to go away for a long football weekend, so we chose a Badger game/Packer game weekend, fished, grilled, rented a boat, supper clubbed it, etc AND it was fun! The place is ideal for this kind of venture and it is comfortable and in a perfect spot. Nice fire pit action, we drank about 12 beers while watching the sunset and shooting the stuff. The owner was easy to deal with, we brought my brother's dog along and he was cool with it.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

My son & I spent a week here and loved it. Very private location, quiet and scenic. Close to boat launches at the Anchor Inn & Ellendale(Free launch). Deck is huge and overlooks the river. Loved the sky lights and the living room is huge and the furniture very comfortable. It's a perfect place to relax and recharge the batteries. We had no problems at all and would not hesitate to stay here again

Nice Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We rented the house for a weekend getaway with friends to take our pontoon out on Lake Koshkonong. It really worked out well. It was in a prefect location. Lots to do near by. It had a nice view of the River from large deck. The house was exactly how it looks in the pictures. Was clean and had lots of room. Maybe could use a little updating. Owner was very good about getting back to us with questions. Boat dock was a little small for our boat, but we were able to make it work. All in all we had a very nice stay.

Nice stay.

  • 3 of 5

As a previous reviewer stated..bugs. But I would not have expected any less! Location was great! Owner was very nice.

Bring all your own supplies, though a grocery store is nearby.

Lots of light,

Grill is rather sad.

All in all, happy stay.

Owner's Response: Grill will be replaced April 30 or before, and the entire outside will get a thorough spring cleaning. After the long winter of 2013/14, I am guessing many little things will need to be attended to. WILL BE DONE!
