Water's Edge on Lake Wisconsin

Water's Edge on Lake Wisconsin
  • 5 of 5
From the time you open the door, until the time you leave, you will have experienced one of the true gems of lake living. Relax, and float, fish, hot tub, go for a boat ride, all the amenities that make your stay special. Enjoy evenings of peace and quiet as you sit on the deck, and watch the world go by. You may even catch a glimpse of an eagle cruising by. Go for a boat ride and see the expanse of Lake Wisconsin, and the Wisconsin river. It was amazing to be in our fishing boat and see the depths of the different areas of the lake and river.
There are plenty of areas to explore, and restaurants to try.
Our evenings were spent, after sunset, to watch movies on the 52" television with bowls of popcorn.
The home is secluded in a way that you can walk around in your swimsuit and not feel like a geek. It was fun.

The best part for us was sharing and reconnecting with our family!

PS The home is pet friendly, we brought our 6-1/2 year old golden retriever, which we brought her crate for when we were away, who enjoyed the lake, and sat on the deck with us.

All you could ask for in a vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
Mary is the nicest and most organized owner I've encountered in the many years I've been vacationing in Wisconsin. Her vacation home has everything you need. We had a wonderful week highlighted by cooler than normal temps. Our two dogs loved the fenced in yard and our teenagers made great use of the spa. The nice long pier allows for more than adequate room to fish. Although the fishing was poor the week we were there, it still was most relaxing. On the cooler evenings we had pit fires with the generous amount of firewood that was provided. There are no surprises with this rental ... the photos and accompanying information is very accurate. Mary is extremely thorough in her emails and information packet that she provides. Overall, one of the nicest vacations we've had (better fishing would have made it No. 1 :)

Mesmerizing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to get away. The views are amazing from both inside and outside. The home is well cared for and the décor is beautiful. From relaxing on the deck, boating, fishing, swimming or just watching the beautiful wildlife. We seen deer, hummingbirds and my girls caught a frog. This was a memorable vacation for the whole family. I even enjoyed BBQing from the deck when you are over looking the lake. Evening time when the sun sets is a great time to sit on the pier.
If you have any questions or need anything before or while you are up there the owner is just wonderful.

My family and I would love to visit again. ...

5 well deserved stars!

  • 5 of 5
I searched long and hard back in Feb for a cottage that would tick all the boxes (pet friendly, lakeside, place to dock our boat, hot tub for me, all the amenities, etc...) I am so glad I found Waters Edge Retreat. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night 'retreat' at this cozy and private cottage. Morning walks with our coffee, evening cocktails in the hot tub watching the sunset, fires both outdoors with a view of the lake or indoors by the cozy stone fireplace, alfresco lunches on the sunny deck....these were a just a few of the highlights! The lake & river were fun to explore too and our yellow lab had the time of his life jumping off the dock. The area is so peaceful with rolling hills and lush green pastures, and we made the most of one rainy day with a trip to the surprisingly lovely Wollersheim Winery.(we might never have left the cottage if not for that rainy day!) Like the owners intend, Waters Edge quickly becomes your 'home away from home', and everything is thought of to make your stay extra pleasant (thanks again Mary and Randy for a welcome bottle of wine & even some treats for our furry son!) I would also like to add that the booking experience from start to finish was smooth, friendly and professional (thank you Mary!). I have booked cottages on homeaway before and none came close to this experience as a whole. We hope to return to Watersedge Retreat one day in the not too distant future. Thanks again Mary and Randy for sharing this little oasis!

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place for everyone. One level so we didn't have to worry about our toddler and stairs. Fenced yard so we could let our dog enjoy roaming. Inside had games and toys for both our toddler and 12 year old niece (and puzzles for my 40 something husband!). The kitchen and grill made for easy cooking. The pontoon was clean and spacious. Too many good things to list! The owners are INCREDIBLY easy to work with and answered any and all questions. The location is great, we took day trips to Madison, the Dells, the winery, and rode the Merrimac free car ferry. Definitely a place worth going back to!

Always Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful vacation again this year at Waters Edge!
Randy and Mary are always doing something new to the lake house and it is the best vacation rental we have ever stayed at! The fishing was great this year. The kids caught lots of fish off the dock.
And they loved how the dock is set up with lots of places to fish.
Thank you again Randy and Mary for all you do at Waters Edge!
Linley and I can't wait for our fall trip this year!
We love coming back to Waters Edge!
