About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 8)
Legacy House is a quiet retreat, an escape only minutes away from Schoolhouse Beach, the Recreation Center, the Trueblood Performing Arts Center, and every other venue on the Island. The front yard is the perfect place to sit with your morning coffee and experience a stunning sunrise! Or recline in the evening with your favorite libation and witness wildlife first hand. As the sun sets, the deer, geese, heron, and turkeys all come out and parade through the sky overhead and the fields across the way.
If you choose to stay home to eat, we have a full kitchen, appliances, dishes, and silverware. There's even an easy-to-use gas grill outside. We have an assortment of small appliances for your convenience, including 12 cup coffee maker, hand mixer, electric skillet, bread maker, etc. You can wind down by the fire pit in the evening and make s'mores for dessert.
If you choose to dine out, Washington Island offers an incredible variety of choices from 'home cooking' to 'gourmet', from Island delicacies like fresh lawyers to custom pizzas with locally grown veggies.
For the fishermen (and women), we have a fish cleaning station with table, running water, and garbage. There is limited freezer space in the kitchen refrigerator/freezer.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Please supervise the kids. There is plenty of room for them to play outside. We do have a full-time renter in the cottage next door. Please give him his privacy and stay on the house side of the yard, not intruding on his. Also, someone moved the trapdoor for the basement to the livingroom. There is a half wall and gate surrounding the pull up door. Please keep everyone out of the basement. Thanks!...moreless

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: I am the granddaughter of the original owner of this house. Born, but not raised on the Island, I did spend most summers at the house as a child and later visited every year. Marvin, my grandfather was born and raised on the Island, as was his father.
Why the Owner Chose Washington, WI, USA:
Legacy House, as we now call it, belonged to my grandparents, Marvin & Gudrun Jepsen. My uncle Bob bought it from my grandma after Marvin passed in the 80's. I was so excited to purchase this property from my cousins and all the memories attached to it. This is not just someone's home, this is a Legacy.
