Fun family vacation with adult kids

  • 5 of 5

This is the kind of house you just don’t get to stay in anymore—with charm and quirks that modern homes can’t offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our adult grandchildren. The property was beautiful and the lake brings in cooler air that was much appreciated! We were able to have our nearby family come over for a BBQ, and they all loved it too. We played bocce ball in the yard, hooked up hammocks to relax by the lake, and enjoyed S’mores and the fire pit.

The house IS quirky, with uneven levels and narrow doorways; but isn’t an issue unless you’ve got someone prone to falling in your party. It was beautifully decorated and with a fan in the upstairs window, pulls in the cool evening lake air nicely.

Great Stay for a Group of Working Archaeologists

  • 5 of 5

House was a great staging place for us while we were in town doing an archaeological project for work. There was enough space in the house so that everyone could have their own space, and had plenty of room for food prep and family style meals. Outdoor spaces were great. Beautiful view. All in all a great place for us to spend 10 days. Homeowner was responsive when there were any questions.

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 4 nights in December and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is very large and allows for numerous people to gather together as well as have their own space. There are two kitchens, with one being the main cooking kitchen while the older kitchen has the refrigerator and microwave. At times not the most convenient but we made it work. They are well equipped and we had several wonderful meals.

The main living space is truly incredibe, with numerous windows, huge fireplace and comfortable sitting area. The dining room table seats 10 and there are games along with a great record player we enjoyed. None of the fireplaces are operational.

The stairs are steep and the floors uneven with small steps or transitions that make it tricky to walk, especially in the dark. Bedrooms and baths are all nicely equipped with beautiful bedding and numerous towels. Two bedrooms are walk throughs, meaning to get to the end bedrooms you need to walk through these bedrooms.

Overall the house was very clean and provided everything we needed.

We enjoyed the yard despite a big snowstorm and sub zero temps, and the house stayed warm and was very comfortable. The walk from the driveway to the house is far and it was difficult to haul items back and forth.

The owner was very responsive and helpful before and during our stay.

We'd stay again and would definitely recommend this house.

A Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

from our first interaction with the owner to the last, we had an exceptional experience at Enchanted Lake Estate. Cherie was extremely helpful and communicative upfront and there were no surprises, the house was clean, spacious, and and had a vintage charm, especially the old school turntable and records in the huge living room.

We opened the house up and the breezes kept the house cool until a record heat wave (95 degrees) sent us home a day early. The location is exceptional, half hour to Kohler, Road America, and many close beaches. The beds were very comfortable and the screened in porch was ideal when it got buggy. My only complaint is that the bluff is very steep and may benefit from a barrier of some sort, temporary rope or plastic fence as we had to watch our dogs very closely.

I would recommend this property very highly and a thank you to the owner for her thoroughness and professionalism.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

Exploring the house and property was a treat. Amazing historic construction with modern conveniences. Used the charcoal grill for a meal. What fun to experience the stereo record player and the variety of recorded music. Internet worked satisfactorily. TV reception good. All bedrooms upstairs. A bit stuffy but fans helped a lot. Visited the submarine museum, beach, parks, and botanical garden. Host/owner was extremely gracious and accommodating.
