Great place to unwind.

  • 5 of 5

So many places to travel on water to. Close enough for any shopping needs yet far enough away for quiet time around a campfire overlooking the lake.

Peaceful respite after busy AirVenture days!

  • 5 of 5

House is located in a very quiet, residential area with a beautiful lake view. It is an easy drive to AirVenture, restaurants and shopping. Steve is a gracious host. He met us at the house on arrival date and walked through the house with us.

Relaxing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at this relaxing waterfront home this past summer! We enjoyed most of our meals out on the spacious deck that offered a great view of Lake Butte des Morts. During the quiet mornings my husband enjoyed drinking coffee & reading down by the water and the kids loved the little club house & fire pit! This lake home is very close to restaurants, grocery stores, and an outlet mall. Owner Steve Griffin is very accommodating and friendly. We will definitely be coming back!

We had a wonderful time. It was so relaxing, fun and just spectacular scenery. The kitchen and living space was an open floor plan which was super clean and accommodating. Booking our week for next year already. The owner Steve was there to review the property including kayak, boat and water toys. Super nice guy.

Wonderful family fishing trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent a week at this wonderful house on the lake. It exceeded our expectations! The house is very clean and comfortable. There are lots of extras available to make the stay enjoying. There is a grill on the deck, fire pit, washer and dryer, pullout couch (kids said very comfortable), tv and dvd in each room, and kitchen has all you need for cooking. Home is a convenient drive to grocery store, restaurants, and outlet mall.

Our kids are 12, 10, and 6. They enjoyed fishing, kayaking, swimming in the lake (shallow enough to safely swim well past dock). They used kayak every day, as well as many other water toys.

We did a lot of fishing. Mainly caught walleye, crappie, and white bass. It is a short drive to Lake Winnebago, which we did you few times.

Steve was very nice to work with. They clearly take good care of their home and property. We hope to return again soon. Thank you!
