This cute little bungalow is perfect for a couple looking to spend time together in a serene setting. It is clean and well coordinated with tasteful accents and aesthetically pleasing decor. The modern bedding, without the quilted roosters typical in a rural cottage setting, scored major points. The owners make the guests feel truly welcome with thoughtful little touches like a bottle of wine with 2 glasses and home baked cookies waiting for you on the kitchen table, full ice tray in the freezer, colorful fresh flowers on the nightstand, and the mini shampoo and soap all set up with clean towels in the shower.
The property itself is not very secluded and has a quiet road on one side (far enough and quiet enough not to be a bother) and the property owner's house on the other side. The owners, however, provided a perfect balance of interaction and space and couldn't have been more accommodating.
The nearest good hiking place is the Kettle Moraine Forest about 20 min. away and it is worth the trip as you can easily spend an entire day there. If fishing is your passion, there is plenty of fish (big and small) you can catch off the pier. If you're an avid fisherman, you might consider bringing your own boat since there is tons of big fish further away from the shore.There is a canoe and a paddle boat provided, so neither is a good vessel for fishing, but they're perfect means for exploring the lake. The weekdays are extremely tranquil with a lot more activity on the lake during the weekend.
Overall, it was a perfect way to recharge and get away. My companion and I spent a very lazy (and wonderful) week looking at the lake, watching the sunsets, fishing from the pier, observing the family of chipmunks that live under the porch, and concluding each day with a warm campfire. Thank you Keith and Virginia for providing everything we needed for a comfortable and carefree vacation!
