2509 ROCKFORD COLONY RENTAL LLC
We have completely renovated the kitchen and both baths and given the substantial 'blood, sweat and tears', we have decided to not rent our home in 2014 but rather use it as our second home. We apologize that our home will not be available in 2014.
This 4 season Lake Home on the shores of beautiful Delavan Lake offers a peaceful & quiet getaway any time of year. Nestled off of North Shore Dr. in an area of 100 Year Old Oaks, this completely remodeled Victorian Single Family Home is one of the earliest homes on Delavan Lake.
The home features a huge wrap around porch completely surrounded by floor to ceiling glass sliding patio doors that offers both open air breezes from the lake front & enclosed comfort for the evenings & cooler days. The Home is tastefully decorated with antiques & features all wood pine floors. Enjoy 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, & a closeable Den for sleeping up to 6. Enjoy Central A/C and heat year round.
You will enter the home through double doors and inside you will find an open ceiling format with natural pine wood floors. In the 'Parlor' there is a vintage masonry fireplace with a recently installed electronic gas log starter. It is exceptionally easy to start and great to enjoy, even from the front porch. The front Living Room is open to the Dining area which is open to the newly remodeled Kitchen. All appliances in the kitchen are stainless steel and brand new. Enjoy cooking on the marble counter tops while enjoying a view of the lake. You can also cook on the provided gas grill in the back yard. The dining room features a new solid wood table that seats up to 6 people. Connecting through both the Living Room and the Kitchen stairwell is a Den that also features a full bathroom with Shower. You can enjoy a movie on the Flat Screen TV and then have sleeping quarters for an additional guest as the room has two closing doors.
You will be comfortable year round with gas heat/central air conditioning and water softener. You also will enjoy the unique quiet surroundings of the neighborhood as there are no cars on the adjacent properties to awaken you. A full size futon/couch provides comfortable seating in the open air of the enclosed porch. On the other side is a dining set to enjoy meals while also enjoying views of the boats on the lake or to keep a watchful eye on the children playing in the front lawn. Assigned parking (maximum 3 cars) is available a short distance across the street in a designated parking lot.
You can arrange through the neighborhood marina (Delavan Lake Marina, telephone 262-728-5540), which is just a one minute walk from our home, for 'in and out' privileges (they launch your boat or wave runner and then trailer it at the end of your day) at a very reasonable additional cost and they also rent pontoon boats. A Boat Launch is also available at nearby Lake Lawn Resort or the Delavan Lake Public Boat launch. Boating or Personal Watercraft drop offs can be made there. Please note that while we are lakefront and have a gorgeous view, we do not have a public pier or public access to the water. There are two great public beaches in Williams Bay or Fontana which are a 13-15 minute drive. Also, boat docking and drop offs are not allowed on any adjacent private docks or piers by law.
Subtle porch lighting provides a relaxing mood when the sun goes down and the time is right to enjoy conversation and drinks with the neighbors in the area who often enjoy the lake front around a blazing fire pit. You can also enjoy your very own fire with the provided front yard fire pit, where you can hear the water rushing onto the shore.
This property is located in a close community of other lake homes. We appreciate discretion with regard to loud noise. Please do not consider renting our home if you are planning a party. Smaller, more moderate family gatherings are the perfect match for our home and the neighborhood.
We are sorry but no pets or smoking are allowed on this property.
My wife and I love to camp in our RV and while we were camping at nearby Lake Geneva, we took a 13 mile bike ride around Lake Delavan. We found ourselves so enamored with Lake Delavan that we started looking at homes to purchase. And, as they say, the rest is history!
My wife and I fell in love with this charming Victorian lake home and purchased it as our 'get-away' home from Chicago. We love the stunning views, especially the sunrises over the lake. We also love the 'step-back-in-time' ambiance that you feel the moment you walk inside. No matter what the season, Lake Delavan is simply gorgeous. Plus, we can have those wonderful Wisconsin Friday Night fish fries!
