Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband my 4 children and myself really had a great time at the cottage. It was a very relaxing week. The cottage is very well kept and stocked. It was great to meet you Dave and be able to put a face to the voice I spoke to so many times to arrange our week. I cant say enough good things about the cottage and the people. We had a great time and look forward to returning soon for a weekend together.

Nice family vacation home

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful views of river included magnificent bird-watching and gorgeous sunsets. The kids loved the nearby park and use of the canoe and rowboat were huge hits. A very relaxing retreat that provided all the necessary modern conveniences. The mosquitos were certainly voracious but the bug spray seemed to tame them a bit. The wine and flowers upon arrival were appreciated as well! Would definately return under the same circumstances.

Walking into this place was the first positive surprise: Christmas lights were on, the music playing - as if the house was waiting for us :-) - a perfect start to a great trip. The house was perfect and in many ways exceeded our expectations. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. Hours and hours in the hot tub - what a great spot! The upstairs is spacious and with 2 people sleeping the living room (pullout couch) it’s big enough for 6 people if needed.

Last minute change in plans - Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

With Mother Nature dropping another 14" on our cabin up north and a long weekend already planned we could not have been more pleasantly surprised and grateful for the unexpected change in direction. The owner immediately responded with a response - all details and payment secured in less than two hours. From the moment we walked in to the time we left - we were continuously amazed at the attention to detail and overall ambience of the cabin. The fishing was not so great but a certain fisherman shared his catch with us - another example of excellent customer service is the very humorous and witty care taker who allowed our lab a gusty welcome - we were more concerned then him but her wagging tail And excitement pretty much said it all. We have used vrbo often but never so close to home. All have been pleasant and this was no exception. Next time warmer weather and more time in the boats exploring the water. Thank you again Dave for sharing your cottage with us.

Wonderful home away from home with a perfect view!

  • 5 of 5

My family consisting of myself, husband, daughter(ten) and mother in law stayed this past week. We loved it from first site! It was so homey, clean, and comfortable. We found that it had everything we needed for a great relaxing vacation! We adored the deck, view, outdoor seating, dock, playing in the water, canoeing around the river. It was such a great time! We also enjoyed the short drive to the Dells. We visited Poynette and ate at the Owl's Nest(good food) & the Piggley Wiggley for groceries, competitive prices. Our little chihuahua lived outside too, she went swimming for the first time! We enjoyed the tvs to the fires at night, the jacuzzie was amazing! Loved the grill too!

My husband went with Mike Collins from Musky Motive fishing guide out of Portage, he had a fabulous time and we enjoyed the fish he caught too!

Overall a fantastic stay, would suggest to anyone wanting to get away from it all. We were sad to leave!!!

Thank you for the wine as well!

Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for an amazing week! I know you aren't responsible for the pelicans, herons, or sandhill cranes, but thank you for all the amenities my family and I enjoyed at both cottages! The boats, the kitchen(s), the assortment of accommodations were just right: clean, well-considerd, and plentiful. Plus, having the on-site managers across the street and available at my beck and call was amazing: anything I wanted, they were there for me! The view was extraordinary, the firepits perfect, and the kayaking was wonderful. Even with all of that, all the people I met in the area were extremely friendly and helpful. In a phrase, "thank you!"

Wonderful trip

  • 5 of 5

My parents, my fiance, and the four dogs between us all stayed at Island View while we checked out some wedding venues in the Dells. The location was perfect (once we found the cabin - Dave was extremely nice to answer his phone late at night to help us with directions!) and we loved the beautiful winter view. We were so happy to find a place that would allow our four small dogs, and they loved being able to look out the three huge sliding glass doors at the snow and birds that kept coming to the feeder. The spiral staircase up to the loft bedroom was a little difficult to get up - if you have an older person or a larger person it would not be doable. But it worked well for us. The hot tub was FANTASTIC and the best part of the trip. Thanks Dave!
