LAKE DELAVAN VICTORIAN LAKE HOUSE - 50 FEET FROM THE WATER!

Delavan House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

2509 ROCKFORD COLONY RENTAL LLC

We have completely renovated the kitchen and both baths and given the substantial 'blood, sweat and tears', we have decided to not rent our home in 2014 but rather use it as our second home. We apologize that our home will not be available in 2014.

This 4 season Lake Home on the shores of beautiful Delavan Lake offers a peaceful & quiet getaway any time of year. Nestled off of North Shore Dr. in an area of 100 Year Old Oaks, this completely remodeled Victorian Single Family Home is one of the earliest homes on Delavan Lake.

The home features a huge wrap around porch completely surrounded by floor to ceiling glass sliding patio doors that offers both open air breezes from the lake front & enclosed comfort for the evenings & cooler days. The Home is tastefully decorated with antiques & features all wood pine floors. Enjoy 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, & a closeable Den for sleeping up to 6. Enjoy Central A/C and heat year round.

You will enter the home through double doors and inside you will find an open ceiling format with natural pine wood floors. In the 'Parlor' there is a vintage masonry fireplace with a recently installed electronic gas log starter. It is exceptionally easy to start and great to enjoy, even from the front porch. The front Living Room is open to the Dining area which is open to the newly remodeled Kitchen. All appliances in the kitchen are stainless steel and brand new. Enjoy cooking on the marble counter tops while enjoying a view of the lake. You can also cook on the provided gas grill in the back yard. The dining room features a new solid wood table that seats up to 6 people. Connecting through both the Living Room and the Kitchen stairwell is a Den that also features a full bathroom with Shower. You can enjoy a movie on the Flat Screen TV and then have sleeping quarters for an additional guest as the room has two closing doors.

You will be comfortable year round with gas heat/central air conditioning and water softener. You also will enjoy the unique quiet surroundings of the neighborhood as there are no cars on the adjacent properties to awaken you. A full size futon/couch provides comfortable seating in the open air of the enclosed porch. On the other side is a dining set to enjoy meals while also enjoying views of the boats on the lake or to keep a watchful eye on the children playing in the front lawn. Assigned parking (maximum 3 cars) is available a short distance across the street in a designated parking lot.

You can arrange through the neighborhood marina (Delavan Lake Marina, telephone 262-728-5540), which is just a one minute walk from our home, for 'in and out' privileges (they launch your boat or wave runner and then trailer it at the end of your day) at a very reasonable additional cost and they also rent pontoon boats. A Boat Launch is also available at nearby Lake Lawn Resort or the Delavan Lake Public Boat launch. Boating or Personal Watercraft drop offs can be made there. Please note that while we are lakefront and have a gorgeous view, we do not have a public pier or public access to the water. There are two great public beaches in Williams Bay or Fontana which are a 13-15 minute drive. Also, boat docking and drop offs are not allowed on any adjacent private docks or piers by law.

Subtle porch lighting provides a relaxing mood when the sun goes down and the time is right to enjoy conversation and drinks with the neighbors in the area who often enjoy the lake front around a blazing fire pit. You can also enjoy your very own fire with the provided front yard fire pit, where you can hear the water rushing onto the shore.

This property is located in a close community of other lake homes. We appreciate discretion with regard to loud noise. Please do not consider renting our home if you are planning a party. Smaller, more moderate family gatherings are the perfect match for our home and the neighborhood.

We are sorry but no pets or smoking are allowed on this property.

My wife and I love to camp in our RV and while we were camping at nearby Lake Geneva, we took a 13 mile bike ride around Lake Delavan. We found ourselves so enamored with Lake Delavan that we started looking at homes to purchase. And, as they say, the rest is history!

Joe Aceto purchased this house in 2011

My wife and I fell in love with this charming Victorian lake home and purchased it as our 'get-away' home from Chicago. We love the stunning views, especially the sunrises over the lake. We also love the 'step-back-in-time' ambiance that you feel the moment you walk inside. No matter what the season, Lake Delavan is simply gorgeous. Plus, we can have those wonderful Wisconsin Friday Night fish fries!

This is our second year under these owners (4th or 5th at this house) for our annual girls golf weekend, and we are so happy we returned! The owners have done a wonderful job making changes (large and small) to improve the house. In virtually every room we noticed updates and changes which made this already charming house even more perfect - we especially appreciated the redone porch. The view from the porch is amazing - what a great way to wake up, and end the day!

You can tell that the owners truly care about their property, as well as the guests who visit. Everything you could need is provided and the house is immaculate. Great service, quick turnaround on paperwork/deposit, and wonderful follow-up. It's the perfect place for us and we will definitely be back! Thank you!
Owner's Response: Kristin, I really appreciate you mentioning how Bea and i have taken our Victorian lake home "to the next level" since we purchased it two years ago. It has been a labor of love as we completely rebuilt, painted and insulated the wraparound porch as well as painted the entire exterior so that the home is a brilliant white. We also have added decorating touches throughout the home to make it feel even more "homey" for our guests. The most important aspect for me is to ensure I treat each guest like I would want to be treated. Thank you for mentioning the service I provided to you including the quick turnaround on the rental agreement and ensuring that you got your security deposit returned promptly.

We look forward to you and your friends staying with us again!

My girlfriends and I picked the perfect place for our getaway. On our trip up from Illinois we wondered if it would be as nice as the pictures we saw online. We hoped we wouldn't be disappointed. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED!! We fell in love with Joe and Bea's beautiful Victorian lake home the moment we saw it. It is roomy and charming and elegant. As I walked from room to room, I wondered if they might be professional decorators. And the porch - oh! that wonderful huge screened/glassed wraparound porch! That is where we spent all of our time. The lake view is truly magnificent! It was so peaceful sitting out there drinking our coffee and watching the sun come up in the early morning and gazing out at the fishing boats. The neighbors are welcoming and very friendly and FUN! We had a blast with them! Didn't want to say good-bye. There are lots of activities around Lake Delavan to keep you busy. We went to Stellar Winery for wine tasting and a picnic plate lunch. It was enjoyable and a unique experience. We spent time in nearby Lake Geneva shopping, walking the Lake Shore Path, eating pumpkin pie ice cream (YUM), and having dinner at some great restaurants. Our girlfriends' getaway was groovy and unforgettable! Thank you, Joe and Bea, for sharing your wonderful lake home. We hope to come back again.
Owner's Response: Mary, thanks so much for writing such a personal perspective of the experience you and your girlfriends had while staying at our lake home. I often hear from our guests that they are concerned, just as you were, whether the description and pictures that we have on VRBO/Homeaway are truly representative of our home. I am so happy to say that just like you wrote, our guests tell me that they find our home to be even better than the pictures and description we provide. I am a firm believer in under-promising and over-delivering. Your review has helped me and Bea to reinforce that if folks like what they see and read on VRBO/Homeaway, they will be even more pleased once they get to our home.

Thanks again for writing such a personalized review; I know that this review took time from your busy schedule and I am grateful for you doing this. When I get this kind of feedback, it reinforces to me that this is more than a business; it is an opportunity for me to repeatedly feel thankful that I am able to share my home with like-minded people who will have lifetime memories of spending precious time with family and friends.

This home is well decorated and supplied with all you need for a lovely get-away. We used the screened/glassed porch so much each evening and early AM. There are several good restaurants close by. Wonderful for a girls' weekend to just chill. Owner is very accommodating and easy to work with.
Owner's Response: Sue, I'm glad that you and your girlfriends had a relaxing time at our home. The screened porch with sliding glass doors is the perfect place to have those special conversations that family and friends cherish. When my 93 year old dad and his brother and my cousins came to visit that is where we spent just about every waking moment that we were in the home! I appreciate you mentioning that I am accommodating and easy to work with as I really believe in treating my guests the same way that I would want to be treated. I hope you can come and stay again soon.

My family and I greatly enjoyed our stay here. The house is beautiful, spotless, and fully equipped. Joe has been enormously helpful with tips and advice on area activities and restaurants. I warmly recommend this property for anyone looking for a relaxing stay in lake Delavan
Owner's Response: Ori, thank you for your kinds words regarding our home and the advice I provided you. I make sure that each of our guests receives our home in a spotlessly clean condition by cleaning the home myself. It is almost impossible to not relax when you are on our newly renovated porch looking out at the lake. It is so quiet that it takes a while for city people to get used to the sounds of silence but once they do, they really enjoy it and miss it when they go back to the city.
