Nice but could use some welcoming touches

  • 3 of 5

Overall the cabin was nice and can hold a lot of people. Has a huge kitchen and good size living/dining area. Would have been nice if some more welcoming touches were included - like garbage bags, paper towels, grilling utensils, etc. It would make it feel more accommodating. We had to flip burgers on the grill with a spoon because there were no grilling spatulas and it seems ridiculous to have to pack that with you for a vacation. The water access wasn't maintained (had lots of seaweed and debris surrounding the dock) so don't pick this rental if you want to take advantage of the sandy bottom accessible at other parts of this lake.

Very nice house, some quirky rules

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house for a family or group getaway. Right on the lake with a small pier to walk out on. Pretty comfortable beds, big kitchen, lots of seating.

Some standards for this house I would like to highlight. Although this was VERY clear in the contract, please note that sheets and towels are not provided by default - you had to rent them. I've never seen a rental on this site require you to rent towels - and they were quite expensive too (~$15/room). We were able to buy sheets at Walmart for roughly the same price. If Jim were kind enough to provide sheets and towels by default, would have been a 5-star stay.

Thank you.

Perfect home for our group of 7

  • 4 of 5

We're from Chicago and decided to spend spring break doing fun stuff in Milwaukee. Our group was 2 families with a total of 4 adults and 3 kids (ages 10-12). We thought it would be more comfortable if we could find a house to rent instead of hotel rooms, so we were thrilled to find this house only 30 minutes from Milwaukee. It was perfect for our group because it had 2 master suites with private balconies and beautiful water views and then 2 extra bedrooms that worked out well for the kids. Having 3 full baths was great, although our master bath tub didn't drain very well. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. Unfortunately, the garbage disposal sprung a leak during our stay, but the owner, Jim, was very responsive and actually REPLACED it unobtrusively while we were out during the day. So any future renters will get to use a new garbage disposal. We also appreciated having 2 separate dining areas that could each accommodate all 7 of us. The two living/family areas were comfortable, and it was nice that the kids and adults could hang out together, or separately, within the house. Lastly, we liked having the option to park our vehicles IN the garage. We only parked 1 of the 2 cars in the garage during our stay, but both could have fit easily into the extra deep garage.

The only thing that was unusual was the option to rent bed linens and towels, or bring our own. We've rented many houses and have never encountered this before. We opted to bring our own which wasn't a huge inconvenience, but it was still weird to arrive and have NO towels, not even kitchen towels.

Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and would consider renting this property again. Being ON the water, it would be great for a summer vacation, and with all the trees, I'm sure it's gorgeous in the fall.

Great lakefront house for group reunion

  • 4 of 5

The house was able to accommodate our group of 15 - there are several bedrooms and couches plus room for air mattresses. There are also 3 full bathrooms. The kitchen is very spacious and allowed us to cook and serve group meals. We brought our own charcoal for the grill.

We especially enjoyed the lake - it was easy to walk right out from the backyard into the water and continue wading for several hundred feet. We spent a lot of time outdoors - the sunrise and sunset on the lake were beautiful.

The house is in close proximity to other houses but the backyard was still our space to use. Some of the neighbors were eager to help and didn't have a problem approaching us. We welcomed their advice but also wanted some privacy.

Beautiful quiet lakefront home

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is modern and clean, and each bedroom has its own bath and a private balcony overlooking the lake. The shoreline is inhabited by herons, ducks, minnows and too many frogs to count. My daughter had a wonderful time chasing them. Be aware that, at least is August, the entire lake is extremely weedy and the bottom is more mucky than sandy. Happy to have water shoes. Also the water is only two feet deep at the most unless you walk really far, and even then there are weeds. This put us off at first, but the kids had a great time playing frisbee in the shallows and we all enjoyed the wildlife. It was beautifully quiet as well - hardly any motor boats or jet skiers. We hope to return next year.
