A Great Get-Away!
We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend in this lovely home on Lake Ripley. More than enough room for the 8 of us. It is tucked away in a beautiful lake setting, but close enough to run for groceries or hit the local pub. The long pier easily accommodated our boat's We stayed in early October, and the fishing was great. The large family/game room/theater room had something for everyone. We enjoyed the kayaks every morning and a big roaring fire by the lake every night! We will definitely be back to visit the lake and this gem of a home.
Our stay at Lake Ripley was wonderful! We enjoyed the house, yard and nearby beach! The home was clean and well furnished. We really appreciated access to the kayaks. The movie room was perfect for the kids at night. The parents were able to enjoy a drink in the screened in porch each night. Plenty of yard space for the kids to play and a shallow water entry for the kids.
The owners were very helpful and generous. It was perfect for our family week away. From 2years to 70 years, we all enjoyed our stay.
Love this property! We will be back
We had a great stay here. We are from the area and love coming back to visit. The house was great and clean. We especially enjoyed the plethora of toys for our little ones to play with. They were entertained the entire time. We cannot wait to return.
Excellent accommodations with lots of space and things to do
We rented this home while visiting the area to attend our son's graduation from UW in Madison. We needed a place that would sleep 10 and have plenty of space for everyone and have things to do as a family and this place worked out perfectly for us.
First off, the owner Sara was great to work with and was quick to respond to any questions.
The house sits in a quiet area on the shore of Lake Ripley which is a small, very pretty lake and an easy 30 minute drive from Madison. The local town of Cambridge is small, but big enough to have all the basic amenities you might need.
The upstairs master suite is very nice with a huge shower and walk-in closet with a great view overlooking the beautiful lake.
The large family room has lots of amenities such as a pool table with a ping-pong table top which we made heavy use of. There were lots of Legos and other toys to entertain our smaller kids as well.
The TV area is really nice with very large comfortable recliners, a bar area, popcorn machine and mini fridge. The house is on an antenna and so channel selection is limited, but the large 70" Smart TV is Netflix and Amazon compatible and so we just logged into our Netflix account for family night movie watching which worked great.
The kitchen is a bit dated, but very serviceable and extremely well stocked. We cooked all of our meals at the house and made use of the BBQ on the deck. The large dining table gave us space to seat all 10 of us at the table for meals. It saved us a lot of money since we didn't need to eat out.
There are several other areas in the house including a vaulted living room with fireplace, upstairs sitting area, a coffee nook and a glassed in sun porch that was really nice for drinking coffee and bird watching in the mornings when it was chilly out. They even provided binoculars. It was nice to have some different spaces for people to spread out into in smaller groups
A good size deck with a picnic table overlooks the lake. The weather was nice during our visit so we were able to make use of the kayaks and use the fire pit area down by the water. The kids got to watch a beaver and Canadian geese with their babies from the private dock.
We enjoyed the place so much that we barely left the house and would highly recommend it to others.
Thank you for your nice review. We really appreciated having such wonderful house guests....come back anytime!
....And problem solved on the TV situation, we got a Netflix account now. Sorry for your hassle. Take care. ☺️
