Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-7)

Refreshing and relaxing...this meticulously maintained cottage will take you back to your childhood vacations at the lake.

The home features 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, a living room and fully stocked kitchen. There is a spacious loft accessible by ladder - your kids will love it. The is also a comfy deck facing the water with a Weber Grill for your use.

Situated on a quiet bay of Lake Wisconsin, you're free to leave your boat at the private pier, protected from any high waves. You are also free to make use of our paddleboat and visit some of the nearby islands.

This cute and cozy cottage is immaculately maintained, and has recently received a very thorough remodel/update. This property offers you a relaxing, peaceful retreat for your vacation.

There are also a myriad of 'on-the-water' restaurants to choose from.

The cottage is just down the bay from a well-developed boat launch, and near beautiful Gibralter Rock and Devil's Lake State Park.

Close to sandbars, fine dining, hiking, golf courses, shopping, nature, cross-county skiing, snowmobile trails and more — all within 30 minutes of the Wisconsin Dells area.

Relaxation, water-front, all summer or winter activities ... the choice is yours!

About Brandon Finley

My wife and I both grew up in Wisconsin and love all the four seasons bring. Our 2 children are 8 and 10 years old and love every minute they can spend on the lake. Our entire family loves waterskiing, fishing, and boating.

Brandon Finley purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Brandon Finley chose Lake Wisconsin

For over 10 years, our family has been spending on our weekends on Lake Wisconsin. When a property came on the market that just required some 'elbow grease' to bring it up to snuff, we jumped at the chance.

What makes this cottage unique

There's nothing like taking an early morning cruise by boat for brunch at Fitz's restaurant. Or perhaps you would prefer taking our paddleboat out to catch some bluegills.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Brandon! We had a great stay, and we didn't want to leave! Everything was so nice; from the k-cups and creamer, to the paper plates and high- quality TP and paper towels. I felt like I was at home! I love how you provide all the essentials, including the Britta water filter, the grill tools, and the firewood.



Everything was really great! What a perfect cottage- central air, fabulous lake views, a private pier...and it must be the perfect size for your family! Big enough so you all have your own rooms (plus space for guests or storage), but small enough that it's a cinch to clean. My husband and I spent the weekend searching real estate listings to find our own Lake Wisconsin lake property!



Thanks for a great stay! We look forward to visiting again!

Great place to stay near Devils head!

  • 5 of 5

This lakehouse was perfect for our weekend getaway to Devils Head for skiing. It was only about a 20 mn drive, but we also got to see amazing views. The lakehouse was fully equipped, comfortable and well kept. I hope to stay here again!

A beautifully renovated lake home

  • 5 of 5

My family of four (2 adults, 2 young children - 3&6) met up with friends (2 adults, 2 young children - 1&3) for two nights on Lake Wisconsin. The cabin is beautiful - very clean, well maintained, very well stocked, etc. There are three small bedrooms on the first floor and an open loft on the second with three beds, so there was plenty of room. The shower is amazing. The living area is very small, and there isn't a dining table, so we ate most of our meals in shifts at the small cafe table or balanced on our knees. The loft was a bit challenging for our young kids - they had a hard time settling down because you could hear everything from the first floor. If your kid are older, this probably wouldn't be an issue. While in the area, we had brunch at Fish Tales and hiked at Devil's Lake State Park. The kids loved taking the ferry. We would love to return when there are more opportunities on the lake itself. We did enjoy having a fire with the beautiful lake view as a backdrop. Highly recommended.

Lake Wisconsin

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great weekend get-away here in the summer of 2012. The cabin is newly remodeled – very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated! It is in a perfect location with a beautiful view and feels very private. We loved the Keurig coffee maker and coffee! We had fun boating, water skiing, chilling out on the near-by sand bars, grilling and relaxing on the deck. The owners are great to work with and provide everything you need for a very comfortable stay. We would love to come back - I highly recommend this place!

A Classic Wisconsin Lake Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property. It has been recently remodeled and was done very well. The location is great. The cabin sits high from the lake and has a nice panoramic view. Even though there are other cabins close by, you are situated such that you have a very private feeling while on the deck or on the front lawn. Swimming off the dock was great. My family had a cabin on the other side of Sunset Bay for decades and we love this area. We look forward to returning to this cabin again.

Nostalgic Yet Modern

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't do this place justice! Completely updated kitchen and bath afford modern amenities with nostalgic touches (I remember the bathroom knocker from our childhood cottage in the North Wi woods!), tasteful decor, brand new tableware...coffee, etc. very nice. loved the cozy private feel of property - the lake is awesome! We loved this place so much, we drove around looking for similar properties for sale.

Owners were very, very nice. Would definitely recommend this to friends and family and would love to rebook a future stay!

The Perfect Spot for Peace and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is truly a home -- well stocked, ideally located above the shoreline, privately located in a neighborhood of lake homes, clean and bright on the inside. 4 adults and a 3-year old were super comfortable--we cooked, read, played board games and I logged too many work hours on my laptop/cellphone -- the WiFi connection was speedy and my office needed me :( There may not be a lot of reviews yet because the property has recently been added to the market after a complete renovation -- it's nice and fresh -- brand new everything! (Furnace/AC is very quite!) Good to know stuff -- the property along the lake shore here is steep -- this home has steps from the driveway down to the house and steps from the house down to the lake -- no problem for the ambulatory; with the home's cozy size, seating area for dining in requires creativity -- our strong suit! Stay here -- you won't be disappointed!!
