About Steve and Char

Steve and Char bought the cottage with the intention of renting it out while also improving it. We love remodeling projects and have been busy since 2006 improving Miller's Lakeside as well as our other cabin, Uncle Steve's.

Steve and Char purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Steve and Char chose Wisconsin

Steve's family also has a cottage on Rock Dam Lake so we spent quite a bit of time at Rock Dam prior to becoming property owners ourselves.

What makes this cottage unique

Miller's Lakeside cottage was previously a family home, so it is spacious and not in the least rustic. There is everything you need there and it's a fun home away from home.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

Our large family had an amazing time here. Fished right off the dock and caught a lot of bluegills. The lake was also great for water skiing and kayaking. The cabin is very clean and cozy with plenty of room for everyone. We especially loved the yard with water all around us and shade trees. This was an awesome trip and we plan to come back next year.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Miller's Lakeside. The house was lovely and was well-stocked with everything we needed. The large screen porch was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view. We enjoyed taking the canoe out to explore the lake, which was pretty quiet and had lots of wildlife. The nearby public beach was fun for the kids. Char and Steve clearly take pride in their property and are committed to providing a good experience for their guests. We hope to return!

I grew up in this house and what Steve and Char have done is just amazing! The place looks so good and is clean and comfortable. We had a great weekend and I loved that the home owners checked in with us making sure everything was in order. Thank You Steve and Char!

We stayed at Char and Steve's cottage this summer and enjoyed every minute of it! The house was so clean and very well furnished. The house, the yard, the lake, the scenery - everything was perfect. Thanks Char and Steve!

My siblings and I rented this cabin as a gift for my parents 50th wedding anniversary and they absolutely loved it! We all did!! Everything was perfect! Staying in this beautiful cottage was as clean and comfortable as staying in our own homes. Even though other cabins are close, we felt like we were total seperate from everyone. The neighbors we did meet were very friendly. The entire weekend was very peaceful and relaxing, and one that none of us will forget for a long time. The bay was a perfect spot for the kids to fish, canoe, kayak, paddle boat and swim without interference from other boaters (of which there were very few). We camped in the campgrounds many years ago and all have wonderful memories...the beach, the dams, the clean lake - was exactly as we remember. My parents wore smiles the entire time (well, maybe not the day we left). A wonderful place to create new memories and reminisce of the old. We are hoping to make this a yearly family gathering. Thank you Char & Steve! We'll definately be back!!

Just got back from our second annual trip to Rock Dam....everything was perfect as always! We had such a good relaxing time and got to see some relatives.

We also got to see the other cabin that Char and Steve are putting the finishing touches on. It will be every bit as great as this one is!

Thanks again!
