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 Juneau

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!!

The Butternut Bungalow Never Disappoints!

  • 5 of 5

Some of the dishes and a couple chairs were different than when we were there last. However, the charm and tranquility were the same. Every nook and cranny is so absolutely, perfectly clean! The views are peaceful. We love this gem!

Wonderful Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at the Butternut Bungalow. It was everything that two people could want for a long, relaxing weekend. We had a great time taking the canoe out for a spin, sitting by the fire, and enjoying the fall colors from the porch. We hope to be back soon!

Very peaceful, comfortable with lots of special extras

  • 5 of 5

This bungalow was the ideal location and ambiance for two people. It was very quiet and peaceful with private access to a dock , lake and firepit. You could sit in rockers on the porch, in chairs by the fire or on the dock. There was a canoe and plenty of lake available. The bungalow was well stocked with kitchen needs, reading material and games and every amenity you could ever need. The owners provided many extras, water bottles, snacks, and special anniversary treats. The decorating style and art work were a special treat. It is conveniently situated for travel to Horicon Refuge, Kettle Moraine and other recreation areas. There are folders with information on all nearby recreation, food and entertainment possibilities.
