Guestbook comments from the owner

5 star experience. On behalf of my husband, our children and our grandchildren, thank you for the use of your lovely Rock River home last week. Some favorite memories are having the pontoon on a sand bar in the lake and letting the kids swim, catching a 28" catfish off the end of your pier and smokes at the fire pit. Blessings to you both Elyse and Jim.

Great place for friends gathering

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our group of friends over the New Years weekend. Everyone had their own bed to sleep in and it was large enough for us to spread out. The kitchen was well equipped and it was nice to be able to gather around such a large table. Elyse was very responsive and provided lots of helpful information upfront. Would definitely rent this home again!

Great place for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our family gathering. It is set up nicely for young children, including cribs, high chairs, and baby gates. It is large enough for everyone to spread out and the back rooms are really sound proof for sleeping baby. This house is so cozy and has tons of character. We rented in the winter so we were unable to use the yard and dock, but the view is beautiful. Looking forward to renting this home again next year.

Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

This large home with room for all was perfect for our family Christmas. Lots of beds and bedrooms, room at the tables for up to 16, lots of dishes, pots, pans and utensils. The property was very clean. Lots of wood available to keep the fireplace roaring for the weekend. With the snow falling outside and the view to the river it was like a Christmas card. The landlord was very responsive to requests. We had a great time and look forward to going back, especially in the summer to use all the outdoor amenities. Beautiful property right on the river.

Perfect for Guys Weekend

  • 5 of 5

With multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, large living room, kitchen and kitchen table...this place was perfect for our guys weekend. Ad and pics very accurate. Lots of stuff in kitchen to use to prep food and drink. Owners tremendously helpful, lining up coolers, chairs, and table for us to use during our tailgates at University of Wisconsin and Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Fall colors and view from the fire pit was spectacular. Owner very organized with communications and billing. If/when we return to WI for a trip, will stay here!

Room for all ages

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion here for a week. The ground floor bedrooms were ideal for Great-grandma. Crib available for the newest infant, bunk/loft room well used by the young teens as was the basement game room. A bathroom on every floor meant no waiting. The youngest spent time on the swingset/slide/playhouse. Owners were very responsive to our need for additional kitchen items for our large group (we're pretty much foodies). Our kids set up their own Olympics, with prizes for "stylish jumping" off the end of the pier, hula hoop twirling, and timed "uneven beam walk". Good view of play area and river from the dining area, and Great grandma could get to the pier without climbing a lot of steps by walking from front door along gently sloped yard. Thank you so much for a great time.
