Really cool gem of a place! Owner went above and beyond to make our stay memorable.

  • 5 of 5

It's secluded, much bigger than expected and had a ton of awesome amenities. They're not kidding when they say there's a private pond, pool, trampoline, hot tub, and ample space.

I used this as a place for friends to come and relax before leaving the Milwaukee area on flights, and everyone said that the place was "very, very cool" and an "awesome find". I personally loved the pool best; it was a perfect temperature and has both a shallow wading area, and a deeper part for the inner-child who just wants to cannonball all day.

The owner even left us a gift basket to celebrate our wedding the night before, which was very unexpected and cool. I'd come here again in a heartbeat and would recommend both the property and owner to anyone looking for a large house within close driving distance to most of southeastern Wisconsin.

My friends and I had a great weekend here. The house was well cared for and the grounds were gorgeous. We spent a lot of time relaxing in the pool, playing yard games and eating outside. I would love to come back!

Truly great property!!

  • 5 of 5

Kids had absolute blast, pool, hot-tub, trampoline, swingset, fire pit, and a fully stocked private lake...we caught largemouth, catfish and panfish almost every cast! Paddle boat and even a sand beach. This spot has it all! Robert is a nice guy who really was easy to communicate with and accommodating. This spot is perfect! Thanks again and we will be back!
