Great location for our ladies group weekend

  • 5 of 5

Every year my book club does a retreat with about 6 ladies. This house was perfect for our needs as we all like to converse together and have some wine. The living room and dining area were perfect for our lengthy discussions. We loved the kitchen and found everything we needed to prepare some delicious, gourmet meals. Us persnickety ladies found the house to be clean, cozy and comfortable. Everything seemed to work well and we appreciated that the owner provides a drinking water cooler. Nice touch. Outstanding for a small group. I'm coming back with my kids this summer.

Marvelous lake house on Lake Ripley

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to have really balmy weather to enjoy our getaway weekend at this house. We had 2 great sunsets. The interior of the home is really modern, and the beds were so comfortable. We read books on wifi and lazed about. It was quiet and serene. The owner dropped off new kayaks and stand up paddleboards for the house, but we decided the water was still a wee bit too cold. We're going to return this summer to take advantage of the pretty lake. We loved the Sports Page restaurant- great pizza! We also bought some furniture at the antique consignment shop in town. Overall a great experience.

Beautiful House Right On The Water

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our fall get away the lake house. The house itself has gone through an amazing remodel (we loved seeing the before pics). It included everything we needed from comfortable beds to a fully stocked kitchen. The view of the lake, which is steps away, was amazing. The pier was perfect for tying up our canoe that was used to explore Lake Ripley. The kids loved fishing in the crystal clear water. While it was a little chilly to go swimming when we were there, the kids were still temped. The water right at the dock has a sandy bottom that would be great for the summer. The town of Cambridge is just down the road and we enjoyed our visit to Camrock. The trail that starts right there is great for biking and hiking. We were extremely happy to find a wonderful lake house that is close to Madison, Milwaukee and Chicago. Jason was great to work with and takes pride in the way his family has transformed their retreat. My family will be looking to head back to enjoy the lake house in the summer and would definitely recommend checking it out.

Total comfort right on the water

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the Island. The house sits right on the water and the sunsets are breathtaking. Ate in the gazebo every night. Comfortable beds, nice furniture and did I mention the sunsets? LOL Swimming is best of any WI house we've stayed at. Thanks to J&T for getting all the details right. We signed the book and we will be back. Lee and Family

Quiet setting, beautiful sunsets at The Island

  • 5 of 5

All in all we thought the house was a great value for the money. The house is right on the water. We were blessed with beautful weather during our week long stay and breathtaking sunsets each night. We enjoyed the screened gazebo and the swimming in the lake is great. We visited the beach, the bakery and all the shops. We made a million trips to the nearby Piggly Wiggly and cooked some nice meals. The house was clean and has been nicely updated and even came with a drinking water cooler. Cambridge is a cool town. The new kayak and bike shop was our favorite part of the trip. They provided a trip down nearby Koshkononog River and we also got to try stand up paddleboarding. The Hinchley's Dairy Farm tour is a hoot. I almost hate to tell people about "The Island", because I want to save it for me and my family. We'll be back for sure.

Awesome house & kayak adventure on Lake Ripley

  • 5 of 5

We were wow-ed. This house is right on the water and we felt like we weren't just at the lake, we were ON the lake. We swam off the pier each day and dined in the screened gazebo and watched the sunsets. We thoroughly enjoyed the house, the decor and the super comfy beds. The new cycle kayak shop gave us an opportunity to rent kayaks and paddle the creek through Cam-Rock park- which was awesome. We also loved that there were stand up paddle boards and all kinds of toys for rent at the super spectacular public beach across the lake. We also rented an old pontoon from the bait shop to cruise the lake one day. It was a neat adventure, and the kids caught some fish! We can't wait to come back. Thanks for sharing this slice of heaven with us.
