The lake is beautiful & there is a lot to see in & around Oconomowoc. Enjoyed the day trip to Horicon Marsh area. Nice area. Beautiful time of year with the changing of the colors. Fall is very pretty here. Enjoyed all the lakes we saw. House decorated cute.

This home has been in our family since 1996. Our experiences with this house have been that of uniqueness, excitement, bonding, and joy. Since our family has moved on, its tenants have been diverse and many. For several years we offered it to family, friends, and missionaries from our church who needed a place between their calls of service. In 2010 we decided to list it here on VRBO / HomeAway. We always found our house to be a wonderful place for families to gather, experience, and grow, and we hope our home will provide such an environment for those who choose to visit.

Kay purchased this house in 1996

We work very hard to make sure our house & property is well maintained and up-to-date.... interior and exterior. Since we began our VRBO journey, we've been making improvements every year. We hope they are appreciated by our guests.

Character. Charm. Personality. Uniqueness. Private. Intimate. Quiet. Get-Away. Spacious. One of a kind.

So wonderful

  • 5 of 5
WOW!!! We fell head over heels in love with this place! We loved all of the intricate details you can only get from being in a Victorian style home. The place was absolutely beautiful and we had an absolute blast here over the weekend. Can't wait to figure out another reason for us to stay at the house.
And the owner was so wonderful and so nice to work with. This is a definite must if you're looking to stay in the area.

Best family vacation yet!

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been taking vacations together for a few years now. We usually go to the beach but since we recently moved to the Midwest my parents and brother thought a trip up here might be a nice change. We were right!

The house was perfectly stocked for every need we might have. After years at barely stocked beach condos we were pleasantly surprised. We have learned over the years vacationing together with 6 adults and four children (ages 3-16) that we enjoy spending time together at home rather than constantly out sight seeing or eating out and this house gave us that opportunity.

The younger kids enjoyed the lawn games and the upstairs tv/air hockey table. The bunk beds hadn't been moved up there when we stayed but I think it would have made our stay even better. They all slept on air mattresses which was fine too. The small kiddie pool and sand box were great for the two little ones when a grown up didn't want to get into the lake with them.

We had an excellent cookout one evening using the fire pit and grill that fits over it. Our only complaint with the outdoors in general was it was very buggy which was surprising since we come from the South where mosquitos are common. We managed with bug spray and tiki torches for the most part.

The lake was beautiful and generally pretty quiet. We rented a small fishing boat one day but my dad said he had better luck fishing off the dock. The water was great, very clear and cool. The paddle boat and kayaks were fun if you wanted to venture just a little further and see all the beautiful houses.

We went for a quick hike to Horicon Marsh, went to a Brewers game, visited Sprecher Brewery in Milwaukee, the Milwaukee Zoo, and the Public Market.

All in all it was a great vacation and our family all left saying they can't wait to come back!

Great lakefront home

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time we have rented this historic lakefront home for a family reunion weekend (we live out of state but are from the Milwaukee area) and we plan on returning again. It is big enough that if it rains, we would have plenty of space indoors and under the beautiful covered porch overlooking the lake as we host our local family and friends. Luckily the weather was beautiful Memorial Day Weekend this year! The kids enjoyed fishing off the dock and the new campfire area to make s'mores with their cousins. The kayaks were fun too. The kitchen is ample to cook for extended family...there is a gas and a charcoal grill. Beds are comfy, linens are nice and it is always clean and in great condition upon arrival. The owners/caretakers take pride in it's charm and maintain it well. We hope to return next time we come home to Milwaukee area!

A Welcomed Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My sons & I had a wonderful time at this quiet and peaceful home. It was a blessing to spend time alone by the lake in the morning and enjoy the crisp air. My boys had a blast in the game room / loft. It truly was a restful and well needed tiem away. We'd definitely return!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
Our son was getting married so we were looking to rent a lake house that could accommodate guests and allow us to entertain during the week prior to the wedding. This home was an absolute dream! We have rented lake homes in several states over the years. This home was like no other. It was truly like being at home away from home. Every room is big and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking and baking pans, utensils, dishes. I'm so accustomed to packing those things to take on vacation and I certainly didn't need to this trip. It was comfortable. Guests had their privacy. The front porch was so peaceful just to sit and read or bird watch or visit with friends. The owner, Dave, was awesome to work with. He did everything he could to accommodate our special dates due to the wedding. He was easily available during our stay. I loved the house from the photos I saw, but when I actually walked in the front door and toured the house I was amazed. Would definitely recommend this house. Very well maintained inside and out.
