BRAND NEW IN 2013, AMISH LOG CABIN, ON LAKE AND STREAM, 7 SECLUDED WOODED ACRES

Wautoma Lodge Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms (and a loft with a log futon) 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

BRAND NEW CUSTOM DESIGNED AMISH LOG CABIN COMPLETED IN 2013. INCREDIBLY PEACEFUL AND PRIVATE ALL WOODED ACREAGE, CRYSTAL CLEAR LAKE, SAND BOTTOM STREAM RUNNING THROUGHOUT

ENTIRE PROPERTY!

Are you looking for a crowded water skiing lake? Loud neighbors you can see from your deck? A busy lake with lots of boats? A lot so small you can't even throw a football on? No birds or nature to enjoy?

**THEN THIS IS NOT YOUR PLACE!**

As it says in many of the reviews, if you ARE looking for 'stress free solitude' and a 'warm and peaceful' place to vacation, this IS the place.

Welcome to the Blackberry Lodge! A spacious log cabin built entirely by a local Amish family on 7 PRIVATE WOODED ACRES of paradise with a no wake crystal clear lake, no neighbors in sight, a beautiful sand bottom stream winding through the property, and park like trails for you to enjoy nature the way it should be. Charmingly named for the abundance of flowering and fragrant blackberry bushes throughout the property, Blackberry Lodge is nestled in a beautiful forest on a ridge overlooking the lake. It is peaceful beyond imagination and INCREDIBLY private. So private, in fact, unless you leave the property you may not even see another person during your stay except for the people in your group. You get this incredibly secluded private spot hidden in a serene forest yet Blackberry Lodge lodge is less than 5 minutes away from town where you can enjoy great restaurants, cute shops, golf courses, and everything else!

If you have never been in an Amish cabin before they are one-of-a-kind. The 'old world' construction, attention to detail, and northern logs are something you don't find today. Its a unique experience that you will truly appreciate once you step foot inside. I guarantee as soon as you get here you will forget about the stress and worry of your 'real life' and never want to leave. Our property and lodge are made for the ultimate in relaxation and the opportunity for you to truly bond with your family in the most peaceful outdoor setting imaginable.

About Andrew Conger

We are a family of four with children 12 and 14 who love to camp, enjoy nature, fish, and hike. I have a sales and marketing job and my wife is what we call a 'domestic engineer' raising our two wonderful children. We stumbled across this incredible property in 2009 and loved it so much we decided to build 'Blackberry Lodge.'

Andrew Conger purchased this lodge in 2009

Why Andrew Conger chose Wautoma

We originally purchased this property so we could enjoy a 'home away from home' as a place to camp with friends and family. Everyone who visits falls in love with the privacy, nature, wildlife, lake and stream, and peaceful setting. We made the decision in 2012 to build a Amish log cabin and share this property with you, our new friends, so you can also experience the tranquility and beauty of the property that we have for the last 5 years.

IF by chance you ever do want to leave for a short time (but you may never want to) we are SO CLOSE (just a just couple miles) from quaint little downtown Wautoma. Cute shops, restaurants, grocery stores, farmers markets, coffee shops, a nice wine bar, and friendly people! Wisconsin Dells is only 1.5 hours away. Two great 18 hole public course are less than 5 minutes away. And Big Silver Lake (a full waterski lake) is one mile away with a public boat landing. Its like you are in the middle of nowwhere without being in the middle of nowhere!

What makes this lodge unique

Blackberry Lodge is like your own PRIVATE park in the woods and with your own lake. You wouldn't want to ruin a visit to the park with all kinds of electronics so we tried to minimize those distractions for you by not having: Cable TV, Xbox, Wii, WIFI, or anything else that could distract you. Remember, family retreat. That's what this place is all about. Disconnecting from everything for a few days will be just what you needed!

With that in mind we have much for you to enjoy:

Swimming, fishing, canoeing, paddling boating, and row boating on the lake.

Navigating our sandy bottom stream with your small children (or big kids love it, too), looking for frogs (the record catch is 32 in an hour!), crayfish, or catching minnows.

Long walks on our trails viewing all the wildlife.

Don't forget about the firepits for bonfires at night or for 'pudgy pies' during the day. S'more heaven!

We have lots of outdoor games for you to use: Horse shoes, bochi ball, ring toss.

We have many books for you to read also in the bookcase.

We will have a large assortment of board games for you to use.

A flat screen TV will be above the gas fireplace for G and PG movies available for you to view. Sometimes you just need a distraction. Movies are just the ticket sometimes. But at Blackberry Lodge they will be good clean movies that any kid can watch without you having to worry about language or anything else.

And how about just doing NOTHING. Sitting on our deck listening to the birds and looking at the lake. Have a beer or glass of wine. Grill a steak on our stainless steel grill on the deck. Kick back. Relax...

2014 Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The wooded property was very large and beautiful. I enjoyed the well maintained trails for adventuring. My favorite was walking up and down the sandy bottom creek with all the kids and dog.
The Blackberry Hut and fire pit area were awesome! We played bags and had several fires at night.
The house was nicely done and just the right size for our party of 6 (and 2 dogs).
There is tons to do in surrounding Wautoma and Waupaca.
The wildlife was awesome!! Our last morning brought a group of wild turkeys just across the parking pad.
My only disappointment was the lake. I thought it would be visible from the house and wasn't. Also, it was pretty small and shallow. I actually got stuck in the canoe one night in the middle of the lake. However, the beach area was perfect for small kids. Shallow, sandy and warm
All in all, we had an excellent time!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay.
Concerning the lake, over half of it is over12 feet deep, and like all lakes, has some shallow areas in one part of the lake. Actually, the shallow part of the lake is a watershed that harbors the incredible wildlife everyone sees. Our guests love the seclusion (only 3 homes on the lake and only one of those are permanent residents), pristine crystal clear water, sandy beach, swimming, paddle boating, abundance of pan fish, and awesome viewing of the stars at night from the dock on a clear night. You can actually see the Milky Way. No city lights here! To future guests where the lake is a major consideration on your choice, please read the full description of the lake on the vrbo web page and also other guest comments. The lake is not a water ski lake, no motor boats.
Thanks again for the great review and we hope to have you back again.

We Disconnected and Reconnected!!!

  • 5 of 5
This idyllic cabin had everything you would possibly need. The owners put a lot of thought into making this the perfect vacation home rental. My kids (11yr old twins and 18yr old)were a little skeptical about having no wifi or poor cell signal for an entire week. The first few days were tough, but they finally detoxed. They explored the great outdoors with each other and made great family memories! (this was my evil plan all along) The Blackberry hut is a great place for the kids to explore and have fun. We enjoyed a bon fire just about every night, 5/7. The cabin has so much to do the kids didn't want to leave but if we needed provisions town was just 5 mins away. If you love the north-woods of Wisconsin, but not the long drive, this is your place. The only thing it is missing is the loons, but plenty of birds for you to enjoy! The clear sandy lake was so secluded it really was easy to unwind and relax. There is so much to do there we can't wait to go back and explore more! Hopefully the detox won't take as long ;). We really needed this family time!

Great double date getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is a great cabin with lots of space, privacy and activity. My husband and I went with my girlfriend and her husband and had a great time.
Just a note, the lake is not really for fishing. Great for relaxing or paddle boating.

Owner's Response: The property is a great 'getaway' and incredibly relaxing. Thanks! As this is a smaller no wake lake we don't have any big walleyes, huge pike, or the like. However, it does have an ABUNDANCE of panfish and bass including mostly bluegill, crappie, and perch. And the crystal clear water allows you to see fish right down to the bottom on any part of the lake.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I recently stayed at your rental. It was the most relaxing and peaceful vacation ever. We especially enjoyed the fishing and playing in the water. The home itself was wonderful, loved the beautiful wrap around porch but mostly loved the serenity it offered. We will definitely be coming back.

Blackberry Lodge is amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blackberry Lodge. The lodge is brand new, and he craftsmanship is very evident. I spent a lot of time just looking at the woodworking, (sorry I like woodwork) and it's impeccable. The lodge has very comfortable bedding, and seating, and the owners have provided almost everything you can possibly need to enjoy your stay, this was an exceptionally classy touch. We bought here might be a few odds and ends, and so we brought everything we would need, but there was no need to, they have everything. When they say all you need is food and drink, they are right! We at at Christianos the first night, delicious, and the second night we grilled some big ribeyes on the nice grill out on the deck. It was a perfect meal! Our kids (teens) played and fished all weekend out on the beach, deck and water. The water really is crystal clear, and we took the paddle boat out and it was a lot of fun, our dog even got in on the act, and jumped off the boat and swam for the first time! All in all we hated to have to leave, we made a lot of fantastic memories, our teens had a blast (how rare is that?!) and we can't wait to go back!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is perfect for a quiet, secluded vacation. The cabin itself is beautiful and has the perfect feel to it, there was nothing about it we didn't like (even the beds were very comfortable). We stayed in the winter and never really wanted to leave the cabin, but we're already hoping to find time in the summer to visit. The owner was very attentive and easy to get a hold of, and checked in once or twice to make sure we had everything we needed. A great location, great cabin and great owner.
