Nice property on Lake Winneconne with fishing and boating right outside the door.
Winter wonderland! It's cold out and there is ice to play on. Bring your ice fishing gear, snowmobiles, or a good book to snuggle up with in front of the gas fireplace and relax. There are plenty of snowmobile trails and the network of trails can be accessed from the lake or at the end of the road. Trails go from eatery to eatery so you'll have plenty of places to warm up. Don't forget to try your luck at ice fishing. The local bait shop will help you out with tips on what's working and then serve up a great sandwich to fill you up before you head on out. During sturgeon spearing a virtual city materializes on the lake. Tour from shack to shack taking a look at this prehistoric fish. Lake Winneconne is perhaps the premier lake in the US to spear these fish.
This building is a pole barn type structure that has two sections to it. One section consists of the living quarters, and the other section is an area with two boat slips. It is located over the water so you should expect there to be the smell of water. The living area has central air so within minutes of turning it on the humidity will be removed from the air.
The living quarters has a loft bedroom that sleeps 6 plus an additional two on the queen size sofa sleeper in the living room. There is a fully stocked kitchen with a snack bar. There is a small pub table to enjoy meals at if the snack bar is not your style. The living room has a pull out leather sleeper sofa and a small flat screen tv. Only local channels are available - there is no satellite or cable tv. There is also no internet. Patio table, umbrella and chairs as well as propane grill included. There are toys for the little ones. There is a side yard with a fire pit as well as a log swing and chairs along the side dock area. You will need to provide your own firewood. There is a large parking area with plenty of room to park your boat trailer.
The boathouse portion of the building consists of a large dock area with two boat slips. There is plenty of room to stock your boat, clean fish, or even fish if it is raining outside. There is also space to tie boats to along the side yard. There is a set of patio doors between the living area and the boathouse area so you are able to access each area directly from the other without going outside. If you choose to leave those patio doors open there is a screen to keep out the bugs. You will hear the sounds of the water and smell the water if it is hot and humid and you do this.
This property is on the water so you will have the sounds of the water as well as the smell of the water. If you do not enjoy that type of atmosphere this is not the place for you. Depending on the time of year you will hear catfish rolling in the boathouse while they spawn, especially in the early morning hours and around sunset. This may awaken you in the early morning if you leave the windows open. You may see ducks floating by or even catch sight of an owl fishing in the channel. You are right on top of the action being that this house sits over the water.
This lake is not a deep lake and is known for its fishing. The many weed beds are great fishing habitat. During a fishing tournament you will see boats in the channel the property is on as it is a great spot to fish. The Wolf river runs through the lake and that is where you will find the deeper water. You can even boat up the river for many miles beginning at the cottage and going through Lake Poygan to the river mouth and then stopping at quaint pubs, cafe's and restaurants along the way. If you choose to go down river you can boat from Winneconne Lake, to Lake Butte de Morts to Lake Winnebago .
Folks, this is not a luxury resort. It is a very clean, quaint boathouse. Please don't think you are going to be staying in some high class motel with room service. Between each guest it is professionally cleaned by a cleaning service. A new state of the art heat pump providing central air and heat has been installed. There is a water filtration system that is upgraded every two to three years but it is an artesian well so if you are not accustomed to the taste of well water it may taste different to you. The property is tested for mold annually and has always come back clear.
