About Megan

As our family has been vacationing up in Lake Wisconsin since 1999, when this property came available it was an ideal situation! Our parents have a place in Sunset Bay as well but we realized we still spent more time at their place, so why not rent out a great private little get away for others!?! It is a wonderful setting, close to Madison, the Dells, Sauk City, Wollersheim Winery and so much more, that it allows you the chance to get away from it all and yet remain so close to everything!

Megan purchased this house in 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Y'All! We have a blast! Too much work and not enough fun though! Weddings - they can do that!! This offered us the perfect spot to be close enough to help out with all last minute wedding plans, yet gave us some space to relax and enjoy too! Really enjoyed the stay and meeting you! May God bless and keep you in your little piece of Heaven!

Peace and quiet

  • 4 of 5

We had a really nice time sitting and relaxing on the back porch. The views are great and it's a perfect spot to relax. I had a couple hiccups in my reservation planning and Meghan was very accommodating and helpful. Only thing is wifi and cable were out, and I didn't get att cell service. Which turned out to be a blessing, as we were fishing most of the time anyway. Stayed here two years in a row and we will be back again next year.

My stay

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay. The setting was perfect for our thanksgiving get together. I love to travel, and I must say, this place is in my top 3 favorites.

You get what you pay for

  • 3 of 5

If I had a boat and it was summer, this would be a nice place to stay. Otherwise, I would pass on this one as it is rather old and grungy. We didn't pay a lot so we didn't expect a lot. The twin mattresses are not very comfortable for mature adults, and the location is not as convenient as I would have liked. We had no WiFi or cell phone service (we have AT&T). All in all, it was less than great but not aweful. There were two mouse traps in plain sight. Yuk!

Not a good property.

  • 1 of 5

This is not a property I could recommend. This cabin is very old, run down and not particularly clean. There is a note attached to the refrigerator saying to call if there were any problems, but what needs to be remedied will take major demolition and reconstruction. I did call the owner about a filthy grill and no propane and she did send someone with a full tank. There are too many things wrong to list them all. I did text the owner when we left letting her know what we thought. I took pictures just in case my comments are disputed. The property is for sale and I can't believe anyone would consider rehabbing the house, it would be a "tear down". We've rented through VRBO many times, this shouldn't even be listed on the VRBO site.

Owner's Response: We have to admit, this review took us by surprise. When we had contacted this renter making sure they were able to access the property and if everything was okay and did they needed anything, their response was that everything was great and they were all set. The grill had not been cleaned and we offered to send someone over to remedy that immediately, to which we were told not to worry about it. (We have the text messages.) When we were told there was no propane, we tried to contact renter within 3 minutes of being notified, then proceeded to call 3 times and text 4 times with a return message not until the following morning that it was not a problem. Again, we apologized for any inconveniences and asked if everything else was good, again the response was yes. So upon their departure when we were informed that our simple little cabin on Lake WI needed a 'wrecking ball' you can only imagine our surprise. Again, this is a simple cabin/cottage on a flat lot in Sunset Bay on Lake WI. Its great for hanging out, making smore around a campfire, bringing your own boat, or renting one, and do some fishing, swimming, tubbing, and overall playing in the water and spending time relaxing or being with friends and family. We are sorry that your stay was not a pleasant one, we only wish you had told us sooner so that we could have remedied the situation. All the best to you and yours in your future travels.

Love this Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My high school friends and I get together every year for a weekend at a cabin and have rented this cabin on Lake Wisconsin for the past 2 years. The owners are very generous and kind, and they always go out of their way to ensure that you're well provided for. We have a great time fishing off the dock, having a fire at sunset, playing lawn games, and going for a swim in the lake. I would recommend this cabin for anyone looking to get away and slow down for a long weekend--the lake and the owners will not disappoint.
