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.

Wonderful Stay

We had an absolute wonderful time. Robert was great to work with and the property is gorgeous. We can't wait to go back with our son and his friends to celebrate his birthday! I would recommend this property to everyone. You will not be disappointed!

Perfect place to gather with friends!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful piece of property that has something for everyone to enjoy. We had 20 friends stay and they had so much fun boating and fishing in the pond, soaking in the hot tub, sitting around the bonfire, playing volleyball and jumping on the trampoline! The house is very spacious and just perfect for entertaining. Everyone wants to return in the summer and hang out in the awesome pool! The owner was very accommodating and helpful. We had a wonderful visit to the "The Retreat" and look forward to another.

Great Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for NYE 2017 with a group consisting of 6 couples. Owner was there to walk us through everything when we arrived. House was clean and spacious. Place was perfect for watching football and catching up with friends. Would be even better in the summer time.

There is not enough that can be said about this property, AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

There were 11 of us that stayed at this property for 6 nights (6 adults and 5 children). You honestly could not ask for any more! The kids could not get enough of the pool, and when they were out of it, it was straight to the pond for some fishing! The trampoline was also a favorite of the kids (and some adults)! There is also a screened in porch with a hot tub that was pretty awesome too! The house was fully equipped with all the comforts of home and then some. We fully plan on visiting this property again and again! I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!

Pictures do not do this place justice! Just bring your overnight bag and relax

  • 5 of 5

I will admit I was leery with the pictures, but they do not do The Retreat justice. The house is well maintained and very clean. The grounds were expansive and had lots of things to do. The proximity to the freeway was not an issue, sure you can hear it, but we were with a big group, so we didn't not book this place for silent nights! The owner was easy to communicate with and prompt with any questions I had. The house had so much more than I expected, additional folding tables and chairs for big dinners together, every yard game you could thing of! And plenty of towels and toilet paper for a gaggle of women! Would recommend!
