About Dave Weber

I grew up and still live in Highland Park, IL and went to college in Wisconsin (UW-Eau Claire). We love to camp and fish and canoe and bike and hike! This area is perfect for that. Cheryl would only let me but a cottage to enjoy this area where I've fished my whole life if we could find a way to help it pay it's way. So we started renting it as a vacation home on VRBO and Homeaway and the rest is history. We love coming up and staying at our cottages (we also now own a smaller cottage next door, called Quietwater Cottage)!

Dave Weber purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Dave Weber chose Lake Wisconsin

I have fished and enjoyed this beautiful area since I was a boy. We purchased this cottage to enjoy and share with others who want great memories. It is next door to our other cottage, Quietwater Cottage, which is a little smaller but equally nice.

What makes this cottage unique

The open layout this cottage with the great views of the water and islands sold us on this wonderful getaway! We loved the big deck on the water side and the gently sloping yard to the water. It's close to so many fun things to do. We provide a canoe and rowboat for our guests and shallow water in front make it easy to get out on the water and enjoy the beauty of the river and sandy islands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband my 4 children and myself really had a great time at the cottage. It was a very relaxing week. The cottage is very well kept and stocked. It was great to meet you Dave and be able to put a face to the voice I spoke to so many times to arrange our week. I cant say enough good things about the cottage and the people. We had a great time and look forward to returning soon for a weekend together.

Nice family vacation home

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful views of river included magnificent bird-watching and gorgeous sunsets. The kids loved the nearby park and use of the canoe and rowboat were huge hits. A very relaxing retreat that provided all the necessary modern conveniences. The mosquitos were certainly voracious but the bug spray seemed to tame them a bit. The wine and flowers upon arrival were appreciated as well! Would definately return under the same circumstances.

Lovely River Cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time enjoying family while at the cabin. This cabin has pretty much everything you would want and supplies towels, utensils, a grill right there for use. The river was beautiful we used both the canoe and the row boat to go fishing. The hot tub was great and very clean and wonderful to look out to the picturesque views.

The only downsides were the river was pretty shallow right at the pier but we took the canoe out a little ways to fish and that was fun. Also there is only one shower but it worked just fine to have a bath too. There is no washing station for dirty laundry which would be a bonus at the lake.

Wonderful stay Thank you!!

Very nice and clean. We would definitely stay again. Very enjoyable.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was nice. There were a few pet stains on the curtains and carpet but it didn't really bother us. Also the bathroom outlet popped the breaker when I plugged in my hairdryer but called the manager to find out where the breaker panel was and after that used the outlet in the bedroom for the dryer with no problem. We loved the location and would come again or would recommend it to others

Tooooo little time !!!!

  • 4 of 5

It was like being at home. The only thing we disliked, was we the fact that we did have to go back to our real home. Seriously the only thing you need to bring is FOOD,and beach towels. The cottage is supplied with everything else.

Good times, memories and relaxation.

Thanks

Realizing and peaceful cottage on the water

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we opened the front door and saw the expansive view from the 3 sets of patio doors showing the view of the water with the geese swimming by we knew we were in the right place. The owners thought of everything when it came to the amenities including the hot tub and sauna on the deck.

Location is in a quaint community. Whether bicycling or walking is your interest.

Best of all we could bring our furry friend.🐶𝠊We hope to return ....soon.

Thanks for a memorable stay.

Comfortable, cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

When we walked in to the cottage, I knew we had chosen the right place. The light was on, and music was playing to welcome us in. The curtains were open, showcasing the terrific view that kept us enthralled all weekend. The owners really paid attention to details, such as pointing the swinging chair toward the sunset, plenty of towels, a book that's been kept and updated showing things to do, places to go, events, and other items of interest in the area. There were movies, magazines, books, and puzzles to relax with. The beds and furniture were comfortable, and everything smelled clean. There was also a nice sized television, which I know my husband appreciated. This is a great location, near Madison and the Dells, and some other small towns. We really loved our time here, and hope to return again someday.
