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.
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.
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.
