About the Property
4 bedroom, 3.5 bath home with elevated 180 degree lakefront view from deck
Welcome to our family or girls get-away lakefront retreat which accommodates 2-3 families and sleeps up to 10 individuals. Young children are welcome and we have a full size crib in the master bedroom and a high chair in the kitchen. We recently redecorated our home with high end furniture and new Pottery Barn bedding which gives you a true "home-away-from-home" feeling.
Our home offers you the opportunity to escape the hectic city for the peace and quiet of a simpler life. You can have the best of all worlds as our home is centrally located just 15 minutes from the wonderful Lake Geneva activities while you have the peaceful solitude of Lake Delavan awaiting you upon your return. Our home has convenient access to grocery shopping (Super Walmart, Piggy Wiggly and Aldi's) which is 5 minutes away yet again you have the privacy of our home among the large oak trees.
Our home is set on a hill with 100 year oak trees in our lushly landscaped front yard while the rear of the home has a 180 degree panoramic view of Lake Delavan. There is a large deck with patio furniture where you can watch the sun rise and set over the lake. During the day, you can relax on the deck while watching your children swim in the lake.
If you have a boat, you can launch it at the nearby neighborhood marina and dock it at our pier (limit of one boat please). We also have a two person kayak and two paddle boards for your enjoyment. As a perfect ending to your relaxing day, you can watch the moonlight glisten on the shimmering water in complete solitude while enjoying your favorite beverage. Our front yard is set among the tall oak trees and outdoor chairs are provided so you can sit out at night and admire the stars and tell ghost stories!
You will park your cars in our spacious driveway ( we can accommodate up to 5 cars) and then walk up the long curving sidewalk through our secluded yard with the many 100+ year old oak trees. You will then enter our cozy home which is well-apppointed to maximize the pleasure of family gatherings (including air conditioning throughout) while ensuring individual privacy.
When you walk into our home, you will see our large recently updated and well-equipped kitchen which has all the amenities that you would have in your own home. Next to the kitchen is a large dining area. Adjacent to the dining area is a spacious family room with a gas fireplace and windows on three sides which provide spectacular south, west and east lake views. From the family room, you can walk out onto the large elevated deck which has a Weber gas grill and patio furniture with a large rectangular umbrella shade.
Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms with Pottery Barn bedding and 2 full baths. In the very large master bedroom with a cathedral ceiling and which has an elevated 2 sided lake view, there is a king bed, full baby crib, large closets and a private master bath with standup shower. The other two bedrooms each have queen beds (one of these bedrooms has a nice lake view) and they share the adjacent full bathroom which has a shower over the tub.
In the English basement, we have furnished it to be the perfect 'hangout', especially if you have children that want their own space (and which you will be very glad to provide them with!) There is a large rec room with a 49 inch LED smart TV, a foosball table and a futon which can sleep 2 individuals. In a separate area with its own door is a large bedroom with bunk beds (a twin bed and a full bed) along with a full bathroom including a standup shower.
We have high speed internet (true 60 meg download) and cable with HBO and Showtime. We also have great central A/C as well.
You can be assured that we are experienced vacation home owners who meet the needs of our guests based on our 4.95 rating for 2015 as well as a 4.9 rating (based on over 50 reviews) on another home we previously rented on VRBO. We know that you want to have a stress free vacation in an exceptionally clean and well appointed home and and we will ensure that everything we control is done timely and correctly.
We do allow, on a case-by-case basis, one small (less than 25 pounds) well behaved non-water dog. If you feel your furry child meets this criteria, please call us to discuss this further. Please note that we do charge a $25/day pet fee and a refundable $200 pet security deposit.
Please note that our home is in an area where our neighbors are in close proximity and we want to ensure that our neighbors' ability to enjoy their tranquility is not impeded. As a result, this is not a property that is suited for house parties or bachelor/bachelorette parties and if that is your intent, we strongly encourage you to consider other properties that allow that activity.

Why the Owner Chose Delavan Lake, WI, USA:
We love Lake Delavan and bought our first lakefront home in 2011 which we rented on VRBO for several years. In 2014, this home became available to us and we decided to purchase it with the intention of using it for large family gatherings. Since we are no longer renting our original home, we decided that we would rent this home when our family members were not staying in it.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will love the panoramic lake views which are all the more spectacular since we are set up on a hillside. Early in the morning or in the evening, you will hear nothing but the occasional duck or goose and if you are lucky a loon!
