WATER-FRONT COTTAGE IN MANAWA

Weyauwega Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This private shoreline cottage from the 1960s is at the end of a quiet lane on the mill pond of the Little Wolf River about two miles from the center of Manawa in the rolling farmlands of Waupaca County.

There is fishing right off the private pier: northern pike, perch, bass, bluegills, crappies, pumpkin fish and the occasional brown trout. This area has great spots for the fish to hide in.

Two bedrooms with plenty of room in closets and dressers for your belongings, an orthopaedic memory-foam queen bed & a new queen, hardwood flooring, a comfortable living-room with leather couches, new HD-TV, games, cards, and a fully-equipped kitchen with new appliances and a dining area will help to make you feel right at home.

Get away from the hustle and bustle for awhile. Bring your binoculars to watch the birds. Cardinals, king-fishers, woodpeckers, nuthatches and chickadees live here and so do sand-hill cranes, Canadian geese and squirrels. You can take the portable fire pit and the camping chairs into the yard, lounge in the hammocks (1 double, 1 single) or settle in at the campfire site close to the water. Have fun and see some of the open countryside on the twin 3-speed cruiser bikes. Bring your snowmobile in winter and use the miles of trails in the area; access them right at the pond. Watch the sun rise over the lake across the expansive level yard from the house and porch through the old-stand trees.

I am lucky to have a great care-taker who lives next door and watches over the house through all the seasons. This makes the cottage available for use all year 'round. He is a great fisherman who can swear by this private part of the pond as a fisherman's hideaway spot both summer and winter.

Note! Senior discount (65 years of age or older) of $25 if more than two persons, or $50 for a single person or one couple!

Special rates for returning guests. Ask about extended-stay rates.

Send for a vacation rental agreement after checking the calendar for availability. Reserve now for a weekend get-away or for your summer vacation accommodations!

A fifth-generation California resident who lost her heart to Switzerland would not normally have a cottage in rural Wisconsin but this is special. I live in Chur, Switzerland, and see my family in California about once a year. I have visited Manawa quite a few times to see where my good friend grew up.

Charlene Brunner purchased this cottage in 2005

When my friend showed me the area where she was raised, I was smitten with the beautiful farms, woodlands and lake areas...but especially with the quaint little ranch-style cottage I found there on the quiet man-made lake called Manawa Mill Pond. The 1-plus acre yard around the house with old-stand trees provides it with plenty of privacy and peacefulness, especially because of the 400-yard lake-shore access. There is no traffic because at the end of this country cul-de-sac lane.

This cottage gives vactioners a chance to spend time in an absolutely quiet place away from home. I recently had the opportunity to visit the cottage and loved the feeling of security and seclusion it gave me. Bird-watching, fishing, some swimming and barbecuing, but also reading and painting here are the highlights.

I have enjoyed the Mid-Western Rodeo in Manawa in July and have seen some of the old cars that are shown at the Iola Car Show.

Green Bay is worth a trip for many reasons. The Wisconsin Dells, too.

I furnished the cottage in 2005 from some of the local stores but especially from the antique shops in New London and Waupaca. For antique lovers there is also the big Osh Kosh show.

Manawa is a convenient distance from the Outagamie Airport in Appleton and not a bad drive from Chicago, where I can enjoy the Windy City before taking off to Switzerland or California.

Quiet Get-Away

Stayed at this lovely cottage with my 87 year old mother, sister, and niece for a "Girls-Get-Away" weekend. The cottage is not fancy, but has everything you need for a quiet weekend. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of blankets and towels. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils and everything you need to make your own meals. Jason came over for a quick visit to let us know that he was nearby should we need anything. He was extremely nice and helpful. Enjoyed the bikes and being able to park in the garage. View from all windows is lovely.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Anna Marie, for taking the time to write such a thorough review. I am sure it will be helpful to other travelers to know what they can expect.

By the way, I am planning a bathroom renovation within the next couple of months. It will be an update to include a deeper bathtub and a separate shower, and nicer flooring and surroundings.

Jay will also be happy to know that you appreciated knowing he is available for any of your questions or needs and close by in case anything should go wrong.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. I hope you will consider returning for another visit some time in the future.

Sincerely,
Charlene, owner

All that was advertised and more! The owner was quick to answer questions and has the cottage completely stocked with anything you would possibly need. The trolling motor on boat worked great, and we enjoyed the bikes also. Nearby Chain O' Lakes is beautiful and worth checking out.

This a comfortable cottage. The kitchen meets your needs. Not fancy but , has everything you need for cooking. I fish the river from the dam in Manawa down stream to the bridge on BB. But, I really like getting up early in the morning and sit on the pier and watch a bobber move slowly across the water and wait for the pond to come alive. Plus, everything I catch goes back.
Charlene, I want to thank you and the out standing people that care for the cottage and make my stays great.

My husband and I, along with our pups, loved this place so much the first time we came, that we decided to visit it a second time. And we are so glad we did! This beautiful little cottage is so comfortable and peaceful, it was a perfect escape from the hustle of the city. We love the bird watching, the sunrises, the stars, and everything else about this perfect little place. Charlene and Jason are so accommodating and wonderful. There is no doubt that we will be back again! Thanks for everything!
