HEAVENS VIEW - THE WOODS - WOODED PARADISE WITH AN UP-NORTH FEEL.

Lake Sinissippi House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, sleeps 4 comfortably.

This is a 4 seasons house, each season with it's own character. In winter you can enjoy the solitude of the snow sitting by the woodstove after a day of snowmobiling or ATVing on the lake and snowmobile trails. Spring brings many varieties of wild flowers and migratory birds. Wood Ducks nest in the woods and the Pelicans and Bald Eagles are just a short walk away. Summer brings lake activities, campfires, and enjoying nature. Are you a golfer or bike enthusiast - there over 10 quality golf courses within a 30 minute drive In Fall, you are immersed in the vibrant colors of the leaves and Fall flowers along with the sounds of the geese and ducks. All year long you'll hear the occasional hoot of the owls living in the woods.

Further Details: To make your vacation as easy and relaxing as possible, we've made sure the house is totally equipped for your vacation enjoyment. Most people over-pack. We have all the utensils, cookware, bedding, towels, and outdoor equipment that you'll ever need.

Once here, if you find you need something, we'll try to provide it.

The house has cable TV in 2 rooms and wireless internet throughout the house.

The woods surrounding the house is nature at it's best. You will see squirrels, chipmunks, various species of birds, and possibly a deer or two. In spring, enjoy the splendor of the various wild flowers and flowering trees. Listen to the owls hooting at night while while sitting by your campfire. It doesn't get any better then this!

JUST WHAT I NEEDED!

  • 5 of 5
As a special education teacher and high school coach of two sports, by the time spring break rolled around, I was seeking a tranquil place that would allow me to find some peace, relaxation, and time to just be. Tom and Dianna's "Heaven's View" was all of that and even more. The snow was still around, which allowed for a quiet and peaceful stay. The calming of snow in the woods allowed for some wonderful strolls. The lake was still frozen, so cautiously (of course ;) ), my 2 dogs and I took a few little strolls on the lake which was a first for us! But what a view! The cabin itself was immaculate. The wood stove provided some wonderful fires to sit by and read. Everything is provided. I would say just bring yourself and you are set! Saw some great wildlife. The highlight was the barn owl on one of our walks in the afternoon. So cool to see up close and in person as it perched on one of the branches right outside the cabin. Tom and Dianna were so very warm and welcoming as we arrived. Felt like I knew them for years! My 2 dogs and I enjoyed a peaceful and rejuvinated 3 days here. Felt refreshed as I left and already thinking of a time when we can re-visit. There is a nice fire pit outside on the land that would probably be fabulous to enjoy in the summer, along with exploring more of the woods and area on strolls. I would highly, highly recommend planning a stay here at Heaven's View. Whether it be peace and tranquility, fun on the lake, or just an escape from the world for awhile, I feel all types of visitors would find just what they are looking for here.

Owner's Response: We're glad that you enjoyed yourself and that you were able to unwind while here - that's what it's all about! Teaching and coaching can be draining so we're glad that you were able to recharge your batteries while here!

Sounds like you got up front and personal with one of the Owls - hopefully their hooting didn't keep you up at night - sometimes they can be quite noisey! We're glad you will come again and recommend you try a summer visit - it's a different experience than a winter visit. It's still peaceful but once the snow melts, the migratory birds arrive - ducks, sand hill cranes, pelicans, and the eagles. The trees get their leaves back and the flowers bloom. On the weekends, the lake comes alive but during the week, you have it all to yourself. Enjoy the rest of the school year and we hope to see you this summer! Then you can try out the fire pit and we'll get you out on the lake for a pontoon ride.

MUCH NEEDED BREAK

  • 3 of 5
As a family we got the break we needed at this property. We visited during the tail end of winter so it was still chilly, fairly deserted, quiet, with white & brown (snow, mud, and dead fauna).
We enjoyed playing board games, reading, eating together as a family and watching movies while being cozy next to the fire. Smores by the fire pit with the dipper above our heads in the night sky and bird watching (we saw turkeys, sand cranes, canadian geese, eagle and his nest, we heard an owl)
TV - real nice setup in the main living area
Size - This place is actually the perfect size, we are a family of four with dogs.
Location -
You are at the lake, but not on the lake, i.e. no lake access.
You are in a neighborhood next to other homes, so if you want privacy and isolation, may not be your pick.
Lot - The lot the property is on is sloped so if you are here in the winter, and not physically up to the task of navigating snow and ice, you might want to consider this factor
The owners were very accomodating to our needs, easy to work with and their unique approach of minimal packing required, definitely made a big difference in our stay.
It is the little things I noticed, the electronic bean grinder that had beans loaded and ready to go. The nice coffee pot, not some old one. The quality blender that was so easy to work with. The filtered tap water off the main faucet. The interior is clean and well kept.
Tips -
The washing machine has a noisy spin cycle.
Cell phones - if you have AT&T the signal is weak next to none at the cabin, but the web tv or computer at the cabin might work for you in a pinch
Firewood is provided
Plunger is in the shed (would expect to find in the bathroom or utility closet)
Nearest Piggly Wiggly is not around the corner so either bring your food with you or plan on a bit of a drive.
Eat out options are slim next to none unless you drive into a nearby town, and can be limited even at that, depending on preferred type of venue and/or business hours.
The Horicon Marsh is probably the closest public park area to the property

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed yourself and that the house was everything you hoped for. Sounds like you got some good family time together with your kids. We're sorry that you didn't feel you had privacy. The house is situated on an acre of hardwoods and just a few pine trees so most of the leaves drop in winter. You can see some of the neighbors houses but we're sure you probably didn't see any of them other than maybe on the road. Most of the houses aren't occupied year round and are just used in the summer on an occasional weekend. Also, though not directly on the lake, there is lake access in several places. Sorry we didn't show you where they were but there was still ice on the lake so didn't think you wanted to know where access was available. Also, Dianna said you were so enthused about the kitchen and that you were going to cook up a storm that she didn't point out some of the many good restuarants in the area. Next time you can enjoy chinese food, excellent pizza, hamburgers, steak, and the best prime rib and broasted chicken in the state of Wisconsin - all within a 5 to 20 minute drive of the house.

True the house doesn't have a grocery store next door but again, within a 15 to 20 minute drive there are multiple options to shop for food. In town - which is about 5 minutes away, there are 2 convenience stores/ gas stations that carry the basics - bread, butter, eggs, chips, ice cream, ice, alcohol - basically anything you need - maybe just not as large selection of brands.

We hope you will come back again as it sounds like you enjoyed the house and we can tell you where to go to eat, shop for your groceries, and access the lake.

"GODS COUNTRY"

"Gods Country"
  • 5 of 5
From when I was a small child, going way up north in Wisconsin was always referred to "Gods Country"! For what ever reason, I was led to Heavens View, " The woods"! I truly needed to get away and Dianna reassured me, this is that place! Thank you Dianna, a blessing in disguise. This to me was " Gods Country". Leaving the cabin was hard to do, I walked the area over and over to just take it all in. Beautiful, quiet, ..believe me, I can go on and on about my stay, loved every second spent at this property! You will not be disappointed! Thank you again Dianna, and thanks for trusting my dog! She had dreams of chipmonks, and never touched a one! I do want to come back no doubt. Deb

Owner's Response: Deb,

Thank you for taking such good care of the house and we're so happy that you enjoyed your get-away and were able to relax and unwind. Life gets so hectic and filled with obligations of all sorts that we hope that you will come back when your batteries need charging! You had beautiful weather and just missed seeing the leaves start turning color in ernest by a few days. Dianna liked the picture of the bear you sent her. It had a little scowl on it's face so you better bring it along with you next time so it can chill out too. Hope you'll come back soon.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for a quiet, scenic place to stay for a couple weeks in June near my elderly father who lives in Waukesha, just west of Milwaukee. After considerable internet research we came upon “Heaven’s View – The Woods”. It looked like just what we needed, as it is an hour drive to Waukesha, as well as a number of other central Wisconsin towns. The place looked lovely –secluded, lakefront access, wildlife - with all the amenities at reasonable rates. We called Dianna, the proprietor. She could not have been more gracious and accomodating. We arranged a trip to take a look in October and met her equally kind husband, Tom, at that time. The place was just right for our needs as it was handicap accessible, perfect for my Dad and his walker. We were constantly impressed with how well the cottage was equipped. Besides a large screen TV, wireless internet, a washing machine and other modern conveniences, there was a stock of grocery staples and household items too numerous to mention, some which we were even surprised to find available.

The two weeks that we stayed at the cottage went by in a flash. We were able to bring my dad (age 94) out from his retirement facility to sit around a fire, watch birds and other wildlife. A fledgling bald eagle roosted right outside our window for half a day. A deer ran through the yard. The chipmunks were real characters. We regularly watched a family of sand hill cranes just down the road. An owl hooted out in the woods each evening. We also saw a huge flock of penguins on Lake Sinissippi. The location was perfect for a series of day trips, as we enjoy tranquility but do not sit around much. We went to Horicon marsh and rode bikes (kindly provided by the proprietors), visited the Air Museum in Oshkosh, saw the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, hiked around Mirror Lake, saw the Forevertron (largest folk art sculpture in the world?), went to the Walleye Weekend festival in Fond du Lac, and explored antique stores and great architecture in many of the small, incredibly trim towns in the vicinity. These places were easy trips through wonderful Wisconsin rolling hills. Both nature and culture are available within an hour drive in any direction. All of this was enjoyed with the luck of perfect weather – 50’s in the evening and 70s in the day. My only disappointment was that I didn’t get to use my electric “Bug Zapper,” since the Wisconsin insects were kind enough to wait out our stay.

ANOTHER TRIP TO HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
Ah, what can I can that I have not said previously? Each and every moment spent in "Heaven's View--The Woods" is just a prelude of what heaven will be like! It goes without saying that Tom and Dianna are without a doubt the most gracious hosts. Beyond paying particular attention to each and every detail, their authentic concern and compassion for people is overwhelmingly evident at all times. My two Labs and I left that hallowed spot feeling renewed, re-energized and refreshed. My only regret is that the week seems to evaporate in the blink of an eye! I highly, highly recommend this vacation spot to everyone looking for total tranquility and serenity in life! God bless Dianna and Tom for sharing this heavenly spot!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five just returned from a glorious week in the woods. Tom and Diana made us feel like family visiting from out of town. The house was fully loaded, which made packing so much easier. The house has a lake view on both sides so you can see the sun rise from the porch and set from the dining area. Our kids loved exploring the paths through the woods. Horicon was a lovely town with very friendly people. Highly recommend the boat tour of the Horicon Marsh. Also the Ice-cream parlor and Mother's Day Restaurant. We are hoping to return and bring friends to rent both houses as they are close to one another.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind review and we're very happy that you enjoyed your stay. We're glad that the kids enjoyed themselves and hope that they liked the campfire. We don't know if you saw or heard the owls but hopefully you watched the Hummingbirds fight over the feeder off the porch! We look forward to seeing you again!
