BEAUTIFUL LAKE HOME ON PICTURESQUE RICE LAKE (WHITEWATER LAKE)

Whitewater House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Nestled in the hardwood forests of The Kettle Moraine State Park our lake home is the perfect place to unwind with family and friends and create lasting memories in the stunning beauty of our quiet little lake. Located on over one half acre of flat land, a beautiful gently sloping sand bottom beach and postcard views from our enormous water-front deck, you have stumbled upon one of the best kept secrets in Southern Wisconsin. Rice Lake (Lower Whitewater) is blessed with over 75% of untouched State Park shoreline. Whether you are sipping your morning coffee as you watch the sunrise over the lake, having dinner on our deck or lakeside screened-in porch, playing with the kids on the beach or fishing for our trophy large-mouth bass from the bench at the end of our pier all you gaze upon is the majesty of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Rice Lake boasts only 39 homes residing on its shoreline which makes it the most ideal lake within 100 miles of Chicago, Rockford, Milwaukee or Madison for 100% pure relaxation. All boating and watercraft are welcome on our lake but we typically see very little boat traffic and many times you will feel as though the lake only exists for you.

Our home is located in the middle of a small bay which offers additional protection for all beach activities. The lake itself is incredibly clean and is listed as one of the cleanest and healthiest lakes in Wisconsin by the Department of Natural Resources. The lake has several islands including one that harbor's a small cottage. You will also find Kettle Moraine hiking and biking trails within walking distance of our home. Some of the best mountain biking trails in the midwest are less than a 10 minute drive away. Tons of nearby antique shops, "Mom and Pop" restaurants and taverns, farmers markets, fantastic golf courses, excellent fishing from our pier and a pure hand-dug continuously flowing artesian spring within walking distance that you can use to collect ice cold crystal clear water for those hot summer days.

Rice Lake is truly a hidden gem among the hustle and bustle of many of the surrounding summer hot spots. You are less than 25 minutes from Delavan, Elkhorn, Lake Geneva and Janesville but you will feel like you are literally in the middle of nowhere (even though the town of Whitewater is a short 10 minute drive.) Peace and quiet is what brings people to our sandy shores and it will find a warm spot in your heart as well.

We have owned our home for 25 years and it has never been rented out. You will not feel as though you are in a sterile corporate owned house but a well maintained and cared for member of our family. This home has brought us more amazing and cherished memories than I can count and I know it will provide your family with the same.

Please email me with any questions you may have. I am more than happy to send you additional pictures of our home as well. I have also put together a detailed write-up on the history of Rice and Whitewater Lakes, a little more background about us and a list of our favorite nearby restaurants, bars, bike & ski shops, churches and golf courses... I am more than happy to pass that along as well.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!!

Great Place to Relax

We're fairly familiar with south central WI having family in the area, but had never been to Rice Lake (or Whitewater Lake). Our group was really excited having found this house on VRBO.com and seeing the pictures. The house and the property were very nice and well kept. The deck and screened in porch were very popular spots to hang out and relax.

Rice Lake is a gem, and for the week we were there, there were very few motor boats out on the lake. We saw as many or more canoes and kayaks. We did some fishing off the dock and from the row boat, as well as took many trips out in the kayak.

It's a short trip to Whitewater, Janesville etc...for supplies and such. Great golf at Prairie Woods GC and good hiking on the Ice Age Trail. So many things to do and see.

Lucky to have found this house

Quiet-serene-peaceful! A lake so smooth it looked like glass. The big trees growing across the lake in the Kettle Moraine State Forest reflected in the water. People paddling canoes and kayaks glide quietly across the water. At sunrise the sun reflects colors of peach on the surface of the lake. But don't be mistaken people do come out in their ski boats and the sound of laughter fills the air. The house was immaculate and I can tell you from experience with a house we rented on Rock Lake in Lake Mills this is not something you can take for granted. I can see this house being used by a young family because it has a sand beach and sand lake bottom. Our grandchildren ages 2, 5, 13 and 16 loved the beach and boats. No steep steps, just a gently slope to the water and pier. I can see it used by a group of women friends to spend a weekend away from the pressures of life. We enjoyed going to a close by Artesian well for the best drinking water you will ever taste. The people who own this house and rent it out seem to be wonderful people who obviously love this house. It is something you can feel!

A Truly Fantastic Lake Home Stay

What a marvelous time my family and I had at this lovely summer home. We woke up every morning to a wonderful sunrise and enjoyed our coffee and some of our meals on the terrific deck overlooking the lake with islands and the Kettle Moraine Forest as a backdrop. Fished hours on end on the lake and pier and ate and played games in the screened in porch. The house was perfect and the lake and surrounding area was very peaceful. If you're a little adventuresome and inquisitive there's much to learn about the area. There are hiking trails, artesian well, birdwatching and of course fishingand swimming on the owner's private beach. Anyone who comes here will want to stay a month. I know none of us wanted to leave. What a perfect setting.

Lovely time was had by all

We celebrated our grandaughters 6th birthday in this charming lake house. Grandkids had a great time fishing and swimming. The home had everything we needed, and a short drive to town got us a Wifi connection. Even the short trip to the 'well' for water was fun! Enjoying our morning coffee on the deck was a treat, fishing off the dock was very relaxing. We were lucky with weather this early in the year, May 16 to 21. Hopefully, we'll be able to return late summer or in the fall.

We ate in town every day, really enjoyed Randy's, food good and a nice atmosphere.

Wonderful off-season stay

We had a wonderful winter stay in this lake house -- enjoying the peach and quiet and the beautiful lake. We very much appreciated the personal attention of the owners -- it is clear that they treasure this house and take joy from other people discovering it and enjoying it as well.

The Kettle Moraine State Park provides great opportunities for walking and is also very interesting from a geological perspective (if one "digs" a little deeper). Whitewater is a charming Wisconsin town -- and also enjoys amenities such a large supermarket, movie theater and good dining opportunities.
