Thank you for the use of your beautiful home. What a wonderful location. Coffee on the deck and fishing for the kids first thing in the morning, great ways to start the day!

Another great trip to this gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family late summer get-a-away was a smashing success because of this home. The living space is beautiful and very inviting because it is so open. The kitchen has room for multiple cooks and storage. It's quiet and the views are amazing. The swimming was amazing- sandy with no weeds. It was very clean and had extensive supplies in stock. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it!

Great location for our ladies group weekend

  • 5 of 5

Every year my book club does a retreat with about 6 ladies. This house was perfect for our needs as we all like to converse together and have some wine. The living room and dining area were perfect for our lengthy discussions. We loved the kitchen and found everything we needed to prepare some delicious, gourmet meals. Us persnickety ladies found the house to be clean, cozy and comfortable. Everything seemed to work well and we appreciated that the owner provides a drinking water cooler. Nice touch. Outstanding for a small group. I'm coming back with my kids this summer.

Marvelous lake house on Lake Ripley

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to have really balmy weather to enjoy our getaway weekend at this house. We had 2 great sunsets. The interior of the home is really modern, and the beds were so comfortable. We read books on wifi and lazed about. It was quiet and serene. The owner dropped off new kayaks and stand up paddleboards for the house, but we decided the water was still a wee bit too cold. We're going to return this summer to take advantage of the pretty lake. We loved the Sports Page restaurant- great pizza! We also bought some furniture at the antique consignment shop in town. Overall a great experience.

Beautiful House Right On The Water

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our fall get away the lake house. The house itself has gone through an amazing remodel (we loved seeing the before pics). It included everything we needed from comfortable beds to a fully stocked kitchen. The view of the lake, which is steps away, was amazing. The pier was perfect for tying up our canoe that was used to explore Lake Ripley. The kids loved fishing in the crystal clear water. While it was a little chilly to go swimming when we were there, the kids were still temped. The water right at the dock has a sandy bottom that would be great for the summer. The town of Cambridge is just down the road and we enjoyed our visit to Camrock. The trail that starts right there is great for biking and hiking. We were extremely happy to find a wonderful lake house that is close to Madison, Milwaukee and Chicago. Jason was great to work with and takes pride in the way his family has transformed their retreat. My family will be looking to head back to enjoy the lake house in the summer and would definitely recommend checking it out.
