Quiet setting, beautiful sunsets at The Island

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

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.

Beautiful house and location for a cycling vacation

My husband and I had an amazing week staying at the Island Lane Luxury Lake House. Jason was easy to deal with and very accommodating to our requests. The house is in great shape. We spent evenings sitting on the dock watching the sunset. The road and mountain biking (CamRock) nearby were excellent. It was very nice having the use of a garage for bikes and tools. We found two unexpectedly good restaurants in town (3 minutes away) with outdoor seating, good food, and good Wisconsin Beer. We will be back, and I would recommend this rental! The higher price than our other options turned out to be well worth the money spent.

Breathtaking sunsets and great swimming!

We had gorgeous September weather and we're able to take full advantage of the pier. The swimming is truly top notch- no weeds and a sandy bottom. The grandkids loved jumping off the pier and even caught a few nice pan fish. Evenings were great in the screened gazebo that had room for everyone. We ate every dinner out there, as the sun set, except when we went out for fish fry at the Sports Page, which was fun. The small town was nice - just right. The house was modern, clean and comfortable. We'd say not the biggest, but just the best. Its right on the water and the views are amazing. We enjoyed having wi-fi internet, and I was able to work outside in the screen house, while gazing at the lake. If you've got to work on vacation, it's the way to go! We will be back!

Great Getaway!

Your home was a wonderful retreat from the daily grind! We celebrated my 50th Birthday and found it to be the perfect setting for the celebration. House was well stocked with spices, dishes, towels, EVERYTHING! Really enjoyed the view from living room and back yard! Even our lil yorkie Rex mastered the dock (after many attempts and running scared back towards the house) ha.
Us girls shopped the downtown area and enjoyed lunch at one of the corner diners.
While the guys stayed home and relaxed with "drinks", sports, and card playing.
The outside screened area was a great place for just hanging out and catching up.
We will have to make a return visit and bring along our
fishing poles to try our luck on the lake.
Thank you again for opening your home to us.
Eric, Carol, Jason, Abby, Nicole, Joe and Rex.
