We are the First, Second, Third and Fourth generation of a large, Chicago based family. Deep Family roots pull us from all over the US and Ireland to Lakewood Farms in Mukwonago, Wisconsin.

David O'Bryan purchased this house in 1937

We have grown up, worked on and enjoyed Lakewood Farm for 75 years. Only 1 1/4 hours from O'Hare International Airport, it is as much a part of our DNA as our heritage. The farm offers a unique, private destination for family adventure, family milestones and family reunions.

At any given time of the day, we sit at the top of the hill and will see family members swimming across the lake, a sailboat heeling in the wind, kayakers catching turtles in Turtle Heaven, row boats with fishing poles casting and catching, kids romping on the 'lily pad' off the pier, and sunbathers enjoying the beach. The 'Big House' features a great room with eight picture windows overlooking the lake, kitchen with eat-in breakfast room, dining room, game room, mud/laundry room. 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath and two half baths are on the first floor. 6 bedrooms and 3 baths are on the second floor. Most of our memories are made outside where children can hike to roller-coaster or caterpillar hills, or back to the Mukwonago River or the sand pit or to the little barns or through the fields and trails...picking berries, catching toads, collecting wild flowers and taking pictures of our favorite Lakewood spots.

A MAGICAL CHRISTMAS

  • 5 of 5
My family chose this home to celebrate our extended family Christmas. We found the house perfect for our needs, with enough bedrooms to accommodate all, including bunks for the kids with safety rails and a main floor bedroom with a walk in shower just right for our 90 something parents. The scenery and views in the snow made our holiday like something out of a movie. The kids, big and small, sledded down the hill, spend time in the boat house dreaming of a summer vacation there. Inside there was plenty of room in the great room for oldsters to relax and kids to play games without interfering with each other. We all giggled at the little ones poking their heads through the openings in the balcony railing. The kitchen is fully equipped with an adjacent sunny breakfast room and the main dining room served us well for Christmas dinner. The baths were spotless, the linens fresh and the welcoming gifts made us feel right at home. We even made use of the game room for quiet conversation and naps. We had brought peat from Ireland with us to make a turf fire and the fireplace made our evenings fairy-tale perfect. "Farmer Tim" the property manager took great care of us, from salting the drive to plowing the snow and emptying our generous amount of giftwrap garbage. David, the property contact, answered all my questions prior to our visit and responded very quickly to our inquiries. We are making plans for a summer visit and will definitely be back for next Christmas. You just can't go wrong with Lakewood Farms.

WONDERFUL FAMILY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We visited this property with four families with several small kids and could not have been happier. The house has tons of space and property is huge. The private lake is fabulous for swimming, fishing and taking the boats out. Wonderful sundeck allows for relaxation while the kids enjoyed the water. We will definitely plan on coming back year after year!

GREAT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Amazing property, wonderful waterfront, plenty of room for kids to play and for adults to find a private space to read. I loved the porch over the boat house,the beach and boats and lily pad. The kids did too and also loved fishing and tennis.
The home was large enough for big families or reunions. The kitchen was great and there was plenty of room to seat a crowd. The fire pit was welcoming although the bugs were bad this year because of the rainy spring.
We also loved the great room. Highly recommend for a wonderful getaway. Like having your own private camp. Suitable for all ages.
