About the property

Lodge, 3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 22-40)

The Bunkhouse is a new and unique facility, specially designed for group gatherings. It is housed inside of a former dairy barn, initially constructed in 1885. The original beam construction is preserved and visible throughout the lodge-style facility. The Bunkhouse offers all of the necessary accommodations for your group, including a full and spacious kitchen, a central great room and a game room. There are three bunkrooms, each with their own bathroom. The main floor of the barn has been restored to host larger group gatherings (100+) in a hall setting called the Lower Corral. Additional lower level amenities are associated with the founding company, Pheasants @ Large, LLC, a private hunting preserve. These amenities include a locker room, a game cleaning area, and indoor kennels for your hunting companions. Should your group be interested in a hunt, please refer to our link.

The Bunkhouse is a great place for year-round gatherings including family vacations and celebrations, holidays, reunions, retreats and corporate outings. Front lodge rental for overnight guests only. See our link for a virtual tour.

About The Owner

We both grew up in this area and very much appreciate our rural setting...out in the country near the shores of Lake Michigan, but close enough to great activities. It is here that we are raising our five children. The purchase of this farm and the transformation of the buildings has been a true labor of love and we are thrilled to share it with others.

The Owner purchased this lodge in 2007

Above our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a small military reunion at the Bunkhouse. The conversion of this historic property has been done to a very high standard. The interior is beautiful and spacious. Bathrooms and kitchen have higher grade fixtures. The large open space of the kitchen/dining/living room area allows everyone to be together. Quiet location, but Milwaukee is less than an hour away, and Port Washington only a few minutes. Would recommend to anyone who has a group wishing to get away together.

Interesting and different

  • 4 of 5

A very neat, clean an large space. We used the area as a base for the family of thee groom. The wedding was elsewhere. It was quiet and peaceful. The photos describe the property and the owners let us preview the bunkhouse before we committed to the contract.

Basketball Team / Family Bonding

  • 5 of 5

The Bunkhouse was awesome. The house was clean, spacious, and big enough for 30+ people. Our entire 14U basketball team and families stayed for 4 nights during an AAU tournament. While the boys enjoyed the rec room, the adults sat around the bonfire. Plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained The beach is also a short drive away. I can't stress enough how much fun we had as a group and how much we enjoyed staying at the Bunkhouse. The owners were so very accommodating and friendly. We look forward to coming back next year!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had 25 people at the Bunkhouse and it was spacious, comfortable and had all the amenities you could ask for. Dan and Annie laid out their expectation clear and concise when we checked in. Right from the moment I booked the place till the end, Annie provided all the information requested and was patient in answering every one of the queries I had. The place has all the utensils, silverware, grills, chairs, firewood, games (cards, boardgames, pool, darts and more). My friends hiked and shopped around Cedarburg. The bike trail is across the road which was quite convenient for biking/walking/running. Water Street Brewery and Silver Creek Brewery are 10-15 miles which was perfect. Port Washington beach is very near as well. My friends visited a Winery and different shops. Great place and all of the people in my group had a wonderful time.

Fantastic Corporate Retreat!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from hosting a corporate retreat at the Bunkhouse!! Everything was fantastic!! Great amenities for hosting corporate meeting and retreat. Perfect for Male/Female mix. We had 16 people and there was plenty of room and bathroom/shower space. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need. We loved the privacy and spent everynight at the campfire. The entire house had wifi, direct tv, game room. The beds were extremely comfortable and the house was spotless when we arrived. I would highly reccommend the bunkhouse to anyone. Thanks for everything! Can't wait to come back!
