Why owner/property manager chose Kenosha

I bought this property to work on my artwork. The magnificent views of the lake and sounds of the waves crashing onto the bluff serve as great inspiration.

What makes this house unique

This house is unique to other waterfront properties in Wisconsin because you can hear waves crash onto the bluff when weather permits whereas houses on smaller lakefronts don't offer such sounds. The house scenic, peaceful, romantic, inviting, inspirational, private, quiet, and serene yet is close to shopping, restaurants, golfing, entertainment, and much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

8 of us stayed here over the weekend and we now know what it means to live in luxury. The house is elegantly contemporary and decorated with soft earth-toned colors and clean lines. We loved the wood floors throughout the house, the stainless steel/glass stairway, and the view, oooohhhh the lake view is priceless! The house is very clean and we really appreciated the 4 or 5 air purifiers placed throughout the house and anti dust-mite sheets and pillow covers on all of the mattresses. This just shows how much the Daniel (property owner) cared about the cleasiness of this house. There was no firepit at the time of our stay so we suggested he get one. He did and we will definitely utilize the firepit on our next visit.



The area is quite and serene--a contrast to Chicago city life that we are used to. But that's the type of place you want when you are planning a relaxing vacation. Most stores close at 10pm on weekdays so being night owls, we needed to find places to eat after 10pm. There is a 24-hour Denny's, McDonalds, IHOP, and mega supermarket that's at least the size of a football field about 15 minutes away which added much convenience.



We loved how Daniel provided the basic necessities for us and are planning another visit before year's end. The pictures, as nice as they are, truly don't do justice and this house needs to be visited to be appreciated. My invitees and I highly recommend this vacation rental.

Best Family Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
The “Retreat” was an amazing house to stay at with my family. It has absolutely everything you want, it’s crazy how you can find such a peaceful and tranquil place just a little over an hour from the busy Chicago life. This place is huge and the pictures are exactly what it looks like…. It’s beautiful and depending on the season, you can get a small private beach by the water just a stairwell away… We had a blast playing darts, pool, board games and just hanging out in the huge outdoor Jacuzzi. This is definitely going to be our yearly family vacation spot, you wont be disappointed.

Everything you need is here!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed for a week at this amazing home, and it couldn't have been more wonderful. Everything was clean when we arrived, the kitchen was fully stocked, even games galore: pool table, board games, darts, ping pong table (in the netted garage for the rainy day!), basketball court, volleyball court... Not to mention the beautiful views of Lake Michigan from pretty much everywhere in the house. The hot tub was a major plus for relaxation, outside AND in the master bath! The owner was more than accomodating with the questions we had before, during and after our trip. We would definitely recommend staying here to anyone that asks us. Thanks for an amazing stay :)

Wonderful House for Yoga Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Brought a group of Yogis here for a retreat weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The proximity to the lake with it's amazing sunrises made it a beautiful place to practice both outside in the large yard and inside in the spacious main room. The house has all that anyone could want, with a kitchen and master bed/bath that is quite luxurious. The other bedrooms are nice, especially the one upstairs that faces east. The hot tub, and the fire pits are a wonderful touch for those chilly evenings or after a dip in the cool lake. The entire place was spotless, and the owner wonderfully responsive to all of our queries. If you enjoy electronics you will be especially pleased as there is TV's, games, computers and the like in abundance. For those less techo inclined there's the beauty of the lake, horseshoes, badminton, full size pool table, ping pong and board games galore. The house can easily sleep 12 to 13 as long as everyone likes each other, because the sound does travel. I will definitely consider returning with my students for a lovely getaway retreat weekend.

Awesome Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I took my family on an extended weekend getaway to this beautiful home. The house, views, beach etc.. are even better than you except from the already enticing pictures. There is an awesome private beach area (small but enough) that our kids loved, and loved to explore the area around it. The views are amazing, and sleeping in the master bedroom you can hear the waves crashing. Very relaxing place full of things to do.

Labor Day Visit

  • 5 of 5
Each year our family spends labor day weekend on Lake Michigan. This year we stayed at the "Retreat". The house was amazing. Our family totaling 14 ranges from 2 years old to 62 years old. The house met everyone's needs. There is something to do for everyone. The selection of games was unbelievable from board games to video games. Although it was not possible to swim in the lake just a few steps from the house; beautiful beaches were within a few minutes, drive. The view of the lake was awesome from within the house and from the back yard. We enjoyed the fire pits on several nights. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to prepare meals for a large group. The house was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Dan was easy to work with answering my many questions patiently and promptly. My deposit was returned within days. There is alot to do in Kenosha. Our family especially enjoyed the Apple Orchard. There is no doubt we will consider another stay here.
