This home is our family retreat. There is no touch of an 'institutional' feel anywhere. Our family and extended family spends a lot of time here and we want to share this truly unique and serene experience with those that can appreciate some time away from the rat race. We are VERY kid friendly...but also an ideal destination for a romantic weekend for 2!

Ann purchased this farmhouse in 2005

The Kettle Moraine State Forest's Southern Unit is unique and beautiful. It is also easily accessible to the greater Chicagoland AND the greater Milwaukee areas. The truly amazing thing is all that is available within a short distance - cycling (on and off road), hiking, horseback riding, boating, shopping, spas cross country skiing, etc etc etc. Boredom should NEVER be an issue.

More than 20,000 acres of glacial hills, kettles, lakes, prairie restoration sites, pine woods and hardwood forests can be found in the Southern Unit, making this a popular area for a wide variety of visitors. The 3,500-acre Scuppernong River Habitat Area is the largest wet prairie east of the Mississippi River. You can enjoy all of this but still sleep in (very) comfortable beds and have access to a well equipped kitchen (and central air conditioning)!

GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the house and had a great weekend. It is only a few miles from the groomed Nordic trails in Kettle Morraine where we enjoyed cross country skiing both days. Nice open living room/dining room with fireplace wood stove. Flat screen tvs, internet connection. Will have to visit in the spring to enjoy the land around the house which is now covered under a foot of snow.

SUPER COZY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect spot to get snowed in! Tasteful and comfortable with a great selection of books and board games, a wood stove and deep sectionals. The farmhouse, which was extremely charming, was spotless and well cared for. The master bed was perfect - nice firm mattress. The home is in a very private setting. We were able to do some hiking and sledding before the deep freeze set in and would love to return in warmer months to appreciate more of the outdoors. This was just what our family needed after a busy fall and holiday season.

WONDERFUL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed this vacation home. It was minutes away from the start of the ice age trail 50 mile race. The home was very nicely furnished and the beds were very comfortable. We hope to rent the same place next year. It was perfect for our needs. Thanks!

IDEAL SPOT IN SOUTHERN WISCONSIN!

  • 5 of 5
When looking for a weekend getaway our criteria were simple - someplace in the country and not more than 2 hours from Chicago. We booked the house on Tamarcak Rd because it was in the Southern Kettle Moraine (great hiking trails) and it was only about a 90 minute drive from Chicago. What we got was SO much more - a beautiful, comfortable home in an ideal setting surrounded by nature.

In all honesty, the house in nicer than our apartment in Chicago with every comfort and convenience you can think of (including a well stocked kitchen) and you feel miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life. What a way to de-stress and re-charge.

Thanks you for sharing your place with us! We'll be back for more biking and hiking and relaxing!

RELAXING/BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful location for a relaxing vacation anytime of year. Near Chicago, it was the perfect place to bring the children and dogs. The trail that is located on the property is a great way to start your day-with a morning walk/jog. Once you leave from your visit, you will dream of coming back.

After just returning from a four day trip, I can't wait to book another week this Spring. We arrived when it was pouring rain and 60 degrees (in January) and left with four inches of snow, temps in the single digits and a wonderful experience in one of the best properties we have rented in the last five years. The farmhouse is exceptionally cozy and spacious and fully loaded with every convenience. The views from every window were beautiful after the snow and the fireplace kept us very warm and cozy after coming in from long walks with the dogs. The fenced yard surrounding the house was a godsend for our dogs, and they enjoyed the freedom of running and playing every day. To add even more great outdoor activities, directly across the street, you can access the Kettle Moraine Trails. Your land also has very nice walking paths that outline your entire property. A truly beautiful part of Wisconsin with a "one of a kind" country farmhouse with all the amenities of being at home.
