About Keith & Virginia Wick

Allow us to introduce ourselves…we are Keith and Virginia Wick, proud co-owners and property managers of Butternut Bungalow, a vacation rental property located on Lake Sinissippi in Juneau, Wisconsin. Since August of 2012, we have been blessed with the opportunity to provide a relaxing and comfortable get-a-way for guests traveling from all parts of the United States to the Dodge County area. Our 36 years of sales and customer service experience have afforded us a natural progression into the hospitality industry. Guests visit Butternut Bungalow looking for a way to retreat from their day-to-day routine. As co-owners and property managers, our primary objective is to do our part in making their stay a memorable one. Keeping our guests' needs in the forefront of our minds has been paramount to our success. Virginia, with her design and staging background, especially enjoys making the place unique for each and every guest.

Keith & Virginia Wick purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Keith & Virginia Wick chose Southern Wisconsin

Back in 2008 we began looking for lake property near the Milwaukee area. We have been boating enthusiasts for some time and decided it was time to realize our dream of living near the water 24/7. We had already built one house and were interested in building another, so we began our search with the intention of finding a place where we could design and build our lake home. As it turned out Lake Sinissippi was that place! We drove around the area looking for the perfect spot and while viewing one house for sale, we stumbled on another that had just been put on the market. A double lot, with a little garage/apartment on one and a spot to build our new home on the other. They sold as a set and we decided to take the plunge. We renovated the smaller house and gave it a name - Butternut Bungalow and lived in it while we built our new house next door. It's a great little place that has turned into a get-a-way spot for two. Celebrate your anniversary, birthday, honeymoon, or simply time to wind down. It's perfect!

What makes this bungalow unique

As the photo of us shows…WOW! We fell in love with what seemed to be a very well-kept secret - Lake Sinissippi. You can feel the peacefulness as you wind your way in to the lake.

W-O-W stands for Wicks' On Water and we'd love for you to come experience life on the water, in any season, at Butternut Bungalow.

An excellent site for a quiet, relaxing and refreshing vacation or get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent hospitality! Super quiet and very relaxing for a get-away. Keith and Virginia are great hosts and the property is kept in immaculate condition. We saw more wildlife - fox, family of racoons, deer, muskrat, fowl, etc - than we've seen at our own home! Lake Sinissippi is so peaceful and quiet, sitting in the rockers on the porch reading a book is what a vacation is about! Thank you!!

Owner's Response: And don't forget the chipmunk family under the bungalow porch! So entertaining to watch while you relax in your rockers. Thank you for your wonderful comments. We very much appreciate the excellent review!

Cozy but not exactly what we had hoped.

  • 2 of 5

Amenities are lacking maintenance, pictures do not accurately display the cabin surroundings which is located in the back yard of the primary home (zero seclusion) lake is only 4ft deep (on average 4ft deep - 8ft max depth).

Overall cabin was clean, cozy, and just what we wanted.

Left feeling we should of done more research before renting..

Owner's Response: As the owners of Butternut Bungalow, our primary intention is to set the stage for a phenomenal get-away by providing a clean, safe and inviting space. If there is ever anything that a guest determines needs repair or maintenance during their stay, we want to hear about it so we can resolve any issues as soon as possible. The depths you stated for Lake Sinissippi are correct, meaning it's included in Wisconsin's Shallow Lakes category. It’s actually a widening of the Rock River, providing an expansive 2800 acres of recreational area. Follow the Rock River north to experience both the Horicon Marsh State Wildlife Area and the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge. And yes, the bungalow surely is cozy with a tranquil and lovely view from the porch. We know first hand - - we lived there during the construction of our home on the property next door. Thank you for staying at Butternut Bungalow. Our best to you - Keith and Virginia

Immaculately kept cottage with thoughtful attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

Cottage overlooks an uncrowded lake with plenty of wildlife. We used the cottage canoe to explore, and spotted heron, pelicans, and cormorants. The cottage is filled with tasteful and personal touches. Very well maintained and comfortable. A nice, relaxing getaway.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! Guests love the peaceful atmosphere of Butternut Bungalow. We're glad you were able to take advantage of the canoe to explore the area. Lake Sinissippi is a 2800 acre widening of the Rock River, where birds and wildlife abound. Hope to see you again sometime!
