  • Ideal for our family gathering!

    "We all felt very comfortable in this home - being on the lake with use of kayaks was a great bonus!"

  • One Regret

    "Dianna met us at the house to give us an overview of the area and the house shortly after our arrival. She also checked on us a day later to make certain we found everything in order, which it was. We booked on short notice and found the house to be very clean and organized. The house is equipped with EVERYTHING you can think of from spices and pantry items to board games, movies, small appliances (coffee maker, Foreman grill, mixer, toaster, breadmaker and MORE ), binoculars, plenty of towels and linens, toiletries and hairdryer, internet and cable tv. You will be hard pressed to find a better equipped/stocked home anywhere. There's plenty of seating inside and out to enjoy the views. The screened in, heated sunroom/porch also provides additional seating. You have a choice of using a charcoal or gas grill and a fire pit. The gardens around the house and the yard is well kept and beautiful, even in the fall. We dined at Joan's Cafe in Hustisford, The Rock River Tap in Horicon and at Maria's Taqueria in Waterford -- all very good and reasonably priced with good service. Be sure to save room for the churros at Maria's Taqueria! In the area we enjoyed the seasonal Marsh Boat Tour, visiting the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center (Explorium) and trails which are very easy to walk and vary in length from .25 boardwalk to 2.3 miles and the Auto Tour at the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge --where we saw a whooping crane!! We also enjoyed using the fire pit, the sunrises, sunsets and the birds coming to the feeders at the house. There were gold and purple finches, chickadees, nuthatches, cardinals, and 3 kinds of woodpeckers. My one regret is we only booked 4 nights! I am a travel agent and am accustomed to scrutinizing properties. I could not find fault with anything at this property. We hope to return and definitely recommend this home to our family, friends and you."

  • Above and beyond!

    "I did not stay at this property, but it was my wallet that paid for the reservation. It was rather unfortunate, as the more I interacted with the owners and learned about the location, the more I wished I was booking the trip for myself! I can however, comment on the booking process and my fantastic experience dealing with Bonnie and Jerry. My brother and his wife (from Chicago) were married back in October, and while they originally weren't intending on taking a honeymoon due to employment and financial concerns, I pulled some strings to make it happen. We decided to send them away on a surprise trip, after working behind the scenes to clear it with his boss (this was during their busy season, but he was fine with it). I must say, I couldn't have pulled it off without the help from Bonnie and Jerry! The owners were incredibly accommodating, spending hours over the course of weeks talking to me on the phone about attractions in the area and little details we wanted to have sorted out ahead of time to make their stay special. Being from the east coast, it was a lot of work trying to coordinate this remotely, but Bonnie and Jerry really helped in so many ways and eased that burden. They even went to the local florist on my behalf, picked out a bouquet based on my requests, stocked a few special request items from the market, and arranged it all with a card I had sent out there along with my payment! When the newlyweds arrived at the home, they were greeted with a beautiful display that I couldn't possibly have accomplished on my own. They truly are great people and went above and beyond for us. Many thanks to Bonnie and Jerry for helping to make this trip memorable for my brother and sister-in-law, I certainly appreciated it and I know they did as well! All the feedback I got from them was good, they definitely enjoyed their time there. So if you are considering a stay at this property, don't hesitate... Now I just need to get back out to the mid-west and book a weekend for myself!"

  • Great Space, Cozy and Wonderful Lake View

    "We rented this property over the Thanksgiving weekend for our family get together (11 people & 2 dogs). As you might imagine, we were embarking on a great deal of cooking. We could not have been more pleased with the large kitchen and open floor plan to the dinning room. Additionally on the first floor, an open sitting room and living room with a double sided fireplace nestled between them. The living room provided wonderful views of the lake at all hours. Downstairs walk out to the grill and fire pit were great, ping pong table provided inside activity, unfortunately there were no ping pong balls when we arrived but we were able to get them at the store just a short drive away. Beds were super comfortable! The home owner stayed in contact with me right up to check in, answering questions and proving information on shops, restaurants and activities in the area. At the owners suggestion we visited the German Christmas Market that was being held in the next town over. He made himself available while we were at his property and quickly replied to my inquiries. Overall, we were very pleased....the home was clean, well maintained and provided that "homey feel". I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for that cozy / comfortable lakefront retreat Lori C."
