Our Silver Lake cottage home is one of the last remaining William Walker cottages built circa 1900 as part of the original Silvercryst resort. The classic cottage was recently extensively expanded and renovated to make it an updated all season home with all modern amenities while still maintaining some history (including refinished original douglas fir floors).
Located on Big Silver Lake which features 350 acres of boating, fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, tubing, swimming, water sports, and kayaking in the crystal clear natural spring fed and sand bottom lake.
Our home faces the lake toward the Southwest which provides amazing sunsets. We also have 75' feet of sandy beach frontage, with a private pier and swimming raft. There is space to dock or beach your own fishing boat, ski boat, or pontoon boat. Boats can be rented in Wautoma, if desired. Owner's 3-person WaveRunner PWC is available to rent to qualified renters.
Our home features 3 formal bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms. In addition, we have a large bunk room in the lower level (accessed from home's main stairway or from a separate external entrance) which has 2 additional sleeping areas. The home sleeps up to 12 people comfortably. All mattresses are all new in past 3 years with little use.
The all season porch (with radiant heated floor) is the best room featuring walls of windows, vaulted ceiling, fans, cozy seating area, and dining for 8 - 10.
The interior of the home features a gas fireplace, 3 flat screen smart TV's, whole house sound system, high speed WiFi, central air conditioning, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. The bunk area features a PS2 gaming system, flat screen tv, stereo, electric fireplace, mini fridge, and additional seating.
The exterior features a 7 person hot tub, outdoor shower, large deck, charcoal grill, fire pit, landscaped lot with mature trees/shrubs, large level lot to lake, and a unique 4 person yard swing constructed from an antique ski chair lift. There are only 2 steps down to the pier.
Two kayaks, stand up paddle board, and 2 older 10-speed bikes are available for use.
The house is a short walking distance to the Silvercryst resort for dinner, drinks, entertainment, and the famous beach bar.
The home is just minutes from Wautoma which features additional restaurants, shopping, antiquing, and golfing.
This cottage lake home has it all and is only a 2 hour drive Northwest of Milwaukee, 1.5 hours from Madison, 3.5 hours from Chicago, and 4 hours from Minneapolis. If you get tired of Silver Lake, Wisconsin Dells is an hour drive.
Includes all kitchen items, washer/dryer, bed linens, and bathroom towels.
No smoking and no pets please.
