Waushara County is an amazing county located in central Wisconsin. This small county boasts of 96 lakes and miles and miles of trout streams and rivers. Loaded with rolling hills, pine forests and wildlife, we call it, “The gateway to the north" , It feels like you are in beautiful, upper Wisconsin without the drive!

Misty Detjens purchased this house in 2010

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I had a great time on our week long stay at Sunset Beach. My kids and grandkids did a lot of swimming, tubing, skiing, kayaking and loved the paddle boards we also enjoyed the pontoon. We all enjoyed watching the lake activity. My 3 year old grandson loved watching the wake boarders go by, he would say here comes the music boat. And of course the ducks made there daily visit.

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was,very clean and welcoming. It was a short two day visit for my husband and myself and much more room than we needed. We were exploring the area for a Summer 2017 summer vacation.This would be a great place for 2 or 3 couples to stay or girls stay. The lake and beach are beautiful. It would also be perfect for a family with children beyond toddler age. The front of the house is very close to a busy highway so young children would need.to be watched very closely. The stairway to the basement was a spiral staircase that worked well for us, but perhaps not,well for others. I would prefer the $750 refundable deposit if the property isn't damaged would not be charged when the rental payment is made. We left the house in perfect condition so I am hoping to see the $750 deposit credited to my account soon. We checked out almost 48 hours ago.

Wonderful Peaceful Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic time when we recently stayed at this property. The property was large enough to fit our whole family (7 people including a baby...and we needed 4 different sleeping areas) comfortably and quietly! The cottage is very well equipped and having laundry available is especially nice when boating/swimming. There's no dishwasher so bring paper plates or get ready to do dishes :)

The view from the spacious living area was phenomenal! We enjoyed grilling, boating, campfires, the hot tub, board games, and exploring the local area - especially El Popo, a fantastic Mexican-American restaurant in town. And the company/owners were a delight to work with. We would definitely like to visit again!

relaxing at the lake

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay was great, it was a great getaway for us, and we appreciated that our dog was allowed on the property.

The lake view is always relaxing, and we enjoyed the deck and the house.

One comment we have is that a tv should be added to the living room on the main floor, even a smaller one.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here and had a wonderful experience. The owner and rental agency were lovely to work with. The beach was sandy and very private. The lake was large enough to enjoy boating and fishing on and yet not too busy. The outside deck was perfect for breakfast and dinner and the view was beautiful. We had never been to the Silver Lake area before and found it to be charming.

Exactly what we wanted!!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this great lake front cottage and the entire family loved it! The grandparents stayed here with the grand kids for part of the week and then all the siblings came for an extended weekend, so there were a total of 13 of us. The house and outside area were big enough for all of us to be together or slip away for quiet time. The kids loved all the water activities like the paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, and swimming raft. The outdoor living space was perfect for early morning coffee, midday lunches or night time laughter!

The house was clean with a lot of extras that made food prep, clean up and storage easy. When we were making the futon and pull out couch beds we couldn't find some of the linens, so we called and someone came over promptly to help us out. Great customer service!

We celebrated my mother-in-laws birthday and she always wanted to do something like this...her dream came true! We all had a fabulous week. Thank you for helping us make more family memories!!
