Retro Delavan Lake House """

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 Bed 1 bath large spacious home

The house was built in 1954 after a trip to the north woods where the original owner first admired the wood interiors.

We purchased the house in July 2014 and began our adventure of painstakingly restoring the home to it’s original beauty. Our completion on the main floor was completed in April 17, 2015.

The small city of Delavan is located in southeastern Wisconsin near the Illinois border. Once the home of a large circus colony, today Delavan caters to visitors who enjoy outdoor activities including golf, water sports, hiking and skiing. Delavan offers over 100 acres of nature preserves, the Dribble Nature Trail, the New Hollister Wetlands Conservancy, golf courses and one of Wisconsin's largest ski resorts.

We continue to collect mid-century piece to replicate the original time frame and hope you enjoy your stay.

About Andrea

We met in 1974 and married in 1976.

Tony is a hardworking renaissance man. He can build, fix, repair and repurpose anything. He loves fishing and that’s how we came to love Lake Delavan. We would come up here to fish for the day.

I, Andrea love to cook, garden and have become the tree hugger in the family. Life is an adventure and I meet people along the way that just add to this adventure.

After this many years of being married we have a wonderful sense of working together as partners and look at this as a new adventure.

We hope you enjoy the home and thank you for being part of our adventure.

Andrea purchased this house in 2014

Why Andrea chose Delavan Lake

We came to know the original owner and loved the history and wanted to restore it to it's original beauty. Being next door made it easier for us to work on it every chance we could.

What makes this house unique

This beautiful home is a restored 1954 home.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Rosewing for the weekend because I was standing in a wedding at Lake Lawn resort, but wanted to stay in a house because we had my newborn with us. My parents came up as well as my husband and baby. We were very comfortable there! It's impeccably clean. Kitchen is well stocked. We had everything we needed!

Awesome place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This quaint and retro "cabin" has all the amenities of home with that north woods vibe. It is near many activities in and around Lake Geneva with great restaurants, shops, canoeing, etc. The place is immaculate and obviously well cared for. The owners are super nice and we are excited to return next year!

Property was very rustic and while a retro theme is nice quality must be preserved.

Owners were extremely accommodating and sincere in trying to ensure we had everything we needed.

cute, clean, retro cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Rosewing cottage is all it is advertised to be. Spotlessly clean, beautifully restored 1950's cottage. Close to Lake Geneva on a quiet street across from Lake Delavan, this was the perfect place for me to retreat to during a rained out golf tournament at Geneva National.

Retro House

  • 4 of 5

Awesome Cabin or Cottage. Super comfy, warm and romantic. Great floors to have a romantic dance or 2 on :) The only constructive thing I can add is the TV and cable system was impossible to navigate during our downtime.
