Steve and Jackie Slana purchased this property to allow vacationers to have an opportunity to enjoy Wisconsin lakefront living. We both enjoy various water activities along with creating memories with friends and families.
We wanted a location within a reasonable drive of Chicago and Milwaukee. We feel "stay-cations" will become more popular with people trying to balance play and work.
