Guestbook comments from the manager

Not sure where Tiffany is coming from. There are many cute shops downtown, great places to eat and had a great time at the martini bar downtown. It's across the street from the place where you dine outside next to the river. Our dog couldn't stay out of the river and the kids caught so many fish. What a neat small town away from it all. The cabin was very cozy and clean. We already have it booked for next year.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is the perfect escape for those Chicagoans looking for some quality down time but who aren't up for a long road trip or airlines. Sitting just a tad past the Illinois-Wisconsin border, the trip was under two hours for us (departing from Schaumburg IL).

The owner keeps the cottage extremely tidy and one cannot help but feel a sense of home on entering. It has all the feature comforts of a full blown house: laundry room, full kitchen with oven, microwave, cooking utensils, etc. There is a flat screen TV and small stereo system. The bathroom is stocked with linens and towels.

The lake tends to bustle during the day but the neighborhood was very peaceful at night. The fire pit was great to use during the cool nights we were there.

There is a full sized grocery store within minutes of the place (so it is easy and convenient to stock up for the afternoon barbeque). Downtown Waterford is also very close by. It's a small town but there are a number of restaurants for those nights one wants to head out.

I would say the cabin is ideal for a couple's getaway. We were very charmed by the cottage and would definitely go there again. The owner has done an excellent job in making it feel like a home away from home. There is not a sterile, bland feeling one would get from a hotel or generic furnished place. We highly recommend this property to couples and families with young children.

Plan to clean before you move in!

  • 2 of 5
Pros: The cottage is located in a nice, peaceful location.
Cons: As we entered the cottage it smelled musty, we found cob webs in the corners and in the pantry, along with an unswept kitchen floor and dirty shower. So, before we moved our stuff in, we swept the floor, cleared cob webs, cleaned the shower and deodorized all the rooms. The air conditioning did not work. We called the owners and they did respond quickly bringing over a window unit late the same day we called. Although we did find an iron, there wasn't an ironing board as mentioned on their website. And although we kept kitchen counters and dishes clean we had many ants all over the counters each day we were there. We know that things do happen, but we were disappointed that the renters did not consider any of these things as an inconvenience and did not offer to take anything off of our total bill. We can honestly say we left the place cleaner than we found it, but we wouldn’t recommend it unless you don’t mind cleaning a bit before you move in.

Owner's Response: We pride ourselves of providing a clean and comfortable place to stay. We have a hard time believing that the kitchen floor and shower was dirty. The cottage is maliciously professionally cleaned weekly. Yes lake living means more insects and spiders. Everyone knows that. No matter how often we spray for insects they are back the next day. The violent storm we had the night before your arrival knocked the power out on the central AC. It was an unfortunate chain of events that was out of our control. Since I was out of the country I think it was pretty nice of the neighbor to install a widow AC only hours after your call. We still haven't found the ants but I had an exterminator out there anyways. He said with the heavy rains they like to move into homes. He found no evidence of ants but hopefully what he sprayed will keep them away. You say that things do happen but yet you tell the world what a disappointment your stay was. You say honestly that the cottage was left in better condition than what you found it yet our cleaning crew told us about the open wine bottles left on the kitchen counter top, coffee grounds left in the coffee maker, food in the freezer, pots left on the stove and unwashed dishes just to name a few. I think it's the first time in 7 years that the iron was even used. I forgot we even had an iron. Just so our readers know you didn't ask for a rate reduction, You were not charged a cleaning charge, and you were not charged a late payment fee. You did not respond to my emails or voice mails but you have no problem writing a bad review. I don't know why people are like that. But thanks for your feedback. We know we can't make everyone happy. We will continue to find ways of improving the experience of our guests.

Very nice cottage on the Fox River. Quiet and friendly neighborhood. All amenities as described. Worked well for two adults. Waterford is a very
charming town and this property is close to shopping. 25 minutes to downtown
Milwaukee and fantastic restaurants and sight seeing. Would go back and stay here again.

Great get-away for a ball game

  • 4 of 5
3 of us stayed at this house/cabin instead of a hotel so we could go from Wrigley to County Stadium to watch the Reds play games against the Cubs and Brewers. This was a last-minute decision and it was a good one. The place isn't fancy (we didn't want fancy) but it was clean, simple and peaceful. For me the best part was waking up and walking out on the dock with my coffee. Beautiful spot near a nice little river town (Waterford). We ate at the Thai-Italian place one night (great food!) and then had breakfast at Cafe 231 across the street (again, good food and coffee). It might have been the perfect weather but this was a fun trip.

Americana at its finest

  • 4 of 5
This is American summer at its best. Green Grass, wood dock, wild flowers surrounding the water with the kids chasing lightening bugs. We kayaked and swam in the water and had a great time. The house is clean and comfortable. It is just as advertised and very reasonably priced. I am looking forward to coming back to spend time during the winter to see it with snow on the ground and ice in the water.

A Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5
This vacation home was an excellent choice for my girlfriends and I to celebrate my birthday. Its beautiful and peaceful and close to everything! The house itself was clean, well decorated, and well organized with every amenity one needs to make themselves at home. The exterior would make my mom (a true green-thumb at heart) proud. The patio, grill, and water equipment was a pleasure. I can't wait to visit again!
