Overview

Williams Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Single Family Vacation Home; 7 Bedrooms; Total of 12 beds; Sleeps 15; 5 Bathroom

Since the age of 16, my dream was to build a vacation getaway home on a golf course that my entire family could enjoy. That dream came true 25 years later in 1992 when my wife and I built this beautiful ranch home in SE Wisconsin at the Geneva National complex. Now, our entire family (3 married children, their spouses and our 5 grandchildren) all look forward to coming here.....our Geneva National 'home away from home'. Come see why we like it so much. I know you will enjoy it as much as we do.

This house is great for family fun, golf outings, reunions or even work retreats. From the fully stocked kitchen to the Great Room to the huge outdoor patio to the finished basement, this home will perfectly fulfill your need for a long weekend getaway.

The home has 7 bedrooms with a total of two king size beds, a queen size bed and seven twin beds. There are 3 FULL bathrooms and 2 half baths. Four bedrooms are located upstairs and three are in our newly completed 2,000 sq. ft basement.

Our Kitchen is large...360 sq. ft. It is fully stocked and includes a cook top gas stove, oven and a micro-wave. Between the kitchen table, the bar that separates the kitchen and the Great Room and the table in the adjoining full season porch area, up to 16 people can all eat at once.

The 650 sq. ft. Great Room contains a wood burning/gas fireplace with a 52' TV that includes cable, DVR, VHS and disc player and ample seating area.

The 360 sq. ft. all season porch is a wonderful gathering area. (It has been the site of many of our 'intense' family scrabble, trivial pursuit and poker games.)

The porch leads outside to our 600 sq. ft. stone patio that we just installed two years ago. The patio contains a fire pit, a patio table and two patio umbrellas.

Our backyard is huge (approx. 1/4 acre) and it's the perfect size for just about any outdoor games you wish to play. Adjacent to the back yard is the fairway for the beautiful par 4 10th hole on the Arnold Palmer course. The backyard faces directly west where, from the patio, we have a perfect view to watch the sunset.

The home is centrally located approx. 5 miles west of downtown Lake Geneva, 5 miles east of Delavan and 5 miles south of Elkhorn. Both Lake Geneva and Delavan feature large lakes for boating, swimming, tubing, and fishing. Sight-seeing tours are conducted on Lake Geneva. If shopping is your pleasure, there are plenty of specialty and retail spots in all three towns. Restaurants abound in the area.

Give us a call we'll answer any questions you might have.

Keywords: Ranch style home; wood floors; finished basement; on the golf course; child friendly; large complete kitchen; great room; large patio with pit; fireplace.

About Jerry Frett

We are a family that lives in a west suburban Chicago location. We have three children (all married) with five grandchildren.

Jerry Frett purchased this house in 1992

Why Jerry Frett chose Williams Bay

We wanted a family vacation spot on a golf course close to where we live full time so that we could minimize the travel time from our regular home to our vacation home.

What makes this house unique

Geneva National is a gated community that houses full time residents as well as part-time residents such as us. In addition to playing golf on the three championship courses that are located within the Geneva National complex, we enjoy the beautiful swimming pool, tennis courts, biking and walking paths all located within the Geneva National complex. We also enjoy going into the neighboring towns especially Lake Geneva and Delavan where boating, fishing and water sports abound. There are plenty of shopping, restaurants and sights to see. Of course, the headliner is the beautiful Lake Geneva itself located in the heart of Lake Geneva a few steps from downtown Lake Geneva where we always find plenty of parking.

Lovely spot with lots of beds and couldn't be nearer a golf course

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice time on a golfing weekend at Jerry's house. The key came in the mail prior to me leaving town which made getting there easy. Overall a nice place. Delay in receiving your security deposit is a little aggravating but manageable

Owner's Response: Thanks for the compliments, Al. Just so you and other renters and prospective renters know, we charge all of our renters a $200 cleaning fee. The reason that the return of the security deposit is delayed is because we have to wait to make sure that the cleaning fee by our cleaning ladies (which is always a minimum of $200) does not exceed that amount. Our cleaning ladies send us a bill only once per month at the end of the month. Renters can expect the return of their security deposit in the first 10 days of the month following their last night at the house.

Great Rental Property!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time we have rented this home. The first two times was with 2 other families with small kids. The last time was with 6 of my long time girlfriends. It fit the needs of both groups! So spacious. Lots of room for kids to play, great sitting room in the back. What I really appreciate is that this place is ALWAYS SPOTLESS! They keep it so so clean. Many places don't keep those high standards. Location is close to downtown. When we come with the kids we honestly don't leave because they have so much fun. But we ventured into town when I cam with my friends. Only 4 miles away. It has all the needs for cooking meals. Very easy to clean up and pull together when time to go. I would definitely recommend to other families

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that we stayed at this property and our group enjoyed ourselves just as much as the first time. The home is perfect for extended family gatherings or a group of friends - especially if you have children. It's immaculate and has plenty of space. We hope to come again!

Beautiful location and house

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a gated community which makes you feel safe and surrounding by gorgeous houses. We had a ski trip and were so delighted with the beautiful house as well as how close it was to alpine and other activities.

The stay was super comfortable, there were plenty of bedrooms and baths. Everything was so spacious and convenient, you felt at home as soon as you entered. For 6 women this was a wonderful getaway.

Proud Parents

  • 4 of 5

Our son was getting married at Hawks View Golf Course. The drive was 15 minits.

Instead of my immediate and extended family getting hotel rooms for 2-3 nights, my husband and I rented this home. The ages of guests were 15-84. There were many reasons for the choice, but the most important was that I didn't need to worry about anything at the house, I had so much to do with the wedding.

The house was certainly large enough, with plenty of beds for all, my sister has 3 girls and the basement was perfect for her and her family, and a visiting aunt. The basement bathroom is huge with plenty of hooks to hang towels, the only problem was there weren't any down there, so we had to scramble to accommodate them. Thanks to Sis, she brought some of her own.

The Jack N Jill bathrooms on the first floor were convenient for sharing. The other 2 powder rooms (.5 bath) were a huge plus.

The Sunroom is awesome, with some early risers they could make coffee and head into the sunroom and not disturb others sleeping.

About 9ish in the am, we saw a buck adjacent to the house in the field, he sauntered around picking at vegetation. He had a new rack coming in, but we figured he was 3-5 yrs. old. That was cool.

The Kitchen is large and has plenty of work space. People leave behind some condiments etc... in the fridge which is very nice in case you forget something.

If I had any complaint it is the room/bed comfortableness. I actually slept in 3 rooms looking for the 'right' one and never found it. One set of twins is very squeaky, one set of twins is not that much better. The King Room is so bright in the AM that I had to wrap a bandana on my eyes.

There was a 'musty-ness' to the King Room Closet. This is a pet-free home, I just happen to bring a Nutri-Air spray and I'm glad I did, there is dog bedding in the closet, I must have been sensitive to that and got a little uncomfortable.

The process of renting was smooth, you get plenty of do's and don'ts instructions/sheets etc....

This property made the 'wedding' madness a little easier to come home to.

Thank You

Owner's Response: Thank you, Kathy for your review. I am glad that our house satisfied your needs during your busy weekend. The issue of the lack of towels has been addressed with our cleaning ladies. I am sorry that happened. Our family does have a dog and when we use the house our dog (who is, of course, house trained) does stay with us. We love animals but for obvious reasons we can't allow our renters to bring their animals when they stay at our house.
