Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: The cottage was originally built in the late 1890's by William Walker as part of the Silvercryst resort. Later when the resort property was subdivided by the Walker's, Boyd Merryfield purchased the cottage and the lot. He expanded and completely renovated the cottage in the 1970's/1980's and lived there for many years as his primary residence. When we purchased the property, it needed a complete update again which was completed in 2014. My family of 4 (along with our family and friends) still use and enjoy the cottage and lake as our vacation 'get away' several weeks each year. We have recently decided to rent it for a portion of the summer.
Why the Owner Chose Wautoma, WI, USA:
My extended family has been vacationing in Waushara and Marquette counties for over 20 years. When my family decided to purchase our own vacation home, we chose this property on Silver Lake because it had the most potential, and it is on the best water sports/fishing lake in the area. In addition, we love the history of the area and the location. It is only a 2 hour drive from our home near Milwaukee, but we are still 'up north'' when there. We have a large sandy beach, are on the best part of the lake, and experience amazing sunsets. We have a large level lot to the lake (2 steps down to the pier) and are a short walking distance to the Silvercryst restaurant for dinner and drinks and entertainment.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The all season porch is the best room in the house. Walls of windows provide full views of the lake. A cozy seating area, dining for 8 - 10, sound system, vaulted ceiling with fans, and bamboo flooring (with radiant heat) make this the room where most inside time is spent. Unique whole house sound system for those who enjoy music. 3 smart TV's allow for the streaming of your favorite movies and TV shows from our high speed free cable WiFi. The outdoor hot tub, outdoor shower, and large level lot to the lake are also unique features.
