  • Perfect escape for families or writers

    "We spent a delightful week at this lovely lake house in early August. A phenomenal book collection and artwork from around Asia give this old Victorian a lot of character and charm. Yet, the place isn’t so fancy or fragile that you’re worried about having kids visit. The caretaker was responsive, super friendly and gave great recommendations. (Elegant Farmer, a short drive from here, has the best apple pie I’ve ever tasted!) My young kids caught panfish and bass off the pier every day. The water there is clear and shallow enough that you can see the fish eyeing the bait. We rented kayaks and explored the lake. On our next trip we hope to paddle all the way to Lake Lulu, a no-wake DNR lake that's supposed to be gorgeous. For those who prefer swimming in pools to lakes, there’s a wonderful newer YMCA nearby in Mukwonago that has a zero-depth-entry pool and a waterslide -- much nicer facilities than the Ys we have in the Chicago area. One of my favorite parts of the trip was seeing all the cranes. We hear their distinctive calls when they migrate overhead in the spring. Now we know where these magnificent birds spend their summers. On our last morning as we packed up, a crane stood on the pier, the brilliant red feathers on its head shining in the sun. A perfect end to a perfect trip! We’re already planning our next visit. p.s. This would make a great writer’s retreat in any season. There's strong wifi and three distinct spaces for writing. The library is surrounded on three sides with windows overlooking the woods. The screened porch overlooks the lake, and the dining room has long table with plenty of room to spread out your notes. You’re in a serene setting, surrounded by books, not far from coffee shops, and there's no TV to distract you."

  • Incredible!

    "We just returned from a week-long visit to this magnificent compound with our six kids, ages 5-15. Oh my... what an absolute treat! The house is perfectly remodeled, the kitchen had everything we needed, the grounds are just incredible and FUN , and we had such a blast in the pool and on the lake. Thank you so much, Colleen, for a truly wonderful week of beautiful family time!!!"

  • Private and peaceful retreat

    "This was our 3rd stay at this home, and it is such a peaceful and beautiful setting. Sitting on the porch or down on the patio overlooking the lake is heaven. The house is well-appointed and very clean -- with high quality bed linens (a thing I have come to value greatly after staying at many, many rental homes) and a complete kitchen. Overall the setting is spectacular and the house a perfect escape."

  • Beautiful Home on the Lake with great owners!

    "We were in the area for a family reunion, so this house served as home base for our immediate family. Very spacious main floor, great loft/theater area, great walk-out basement for hanging out, beautiful view of the lake, lots of afternoon/evening sun bringing lots of beautiful light into the house. 3 bathrooms, one on each floor -- convenient. We did not go out on the water due to the family reunion schedule, but there were several water recreation options available. Every area of the house was in impeccable condition, clean, maintained, all light switches labeled so you can find the one you're looking for quickly. They have thought of everything. Everything felt brand new. Owners were very friendly and helpful from the first contact, to showing us through the house, to wrapping things up afterwards. Would not hesitate to stay again."
