This is a classic Wisconsin waterfront retreat. This newly remodeled cottage includes hardwood floors (bamboo), new kitchen, glass tiled shower. Cozy retreat for family/friend gaterings. Greatroom includes wood fireplace, new sofas, huge dining table (meals, games, etc.), and full-wall view of the Bay. Spacious front deck overlooking 200' waterfront includes outdoor furniture, and gas grill. Just a short (25 min) drive to Lambeau Field for Packer practice, pre-season, and games. Shallow water at dock end provides excellent access for kayaking, canoeing, and fishing (small boat). Large front grass provides space for volleyball, and other outdoor fun. Oconto is a nearby town with lots of small restaurants and taverns.

About Donny

We are a fun-loving family. We live in downtown Milwaukee and love the city cultural life. We also love to get away and spend time with our family and friends.

Donny purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Donny chose Wisconsin

This cottage has a lot of family history. My mom and dad picked out this property for its beautiful, sandy waterfront, secluded woods, and easy drive from Milwaukee (2 1/2 hours with a stop). Having a nearby small town (Oconto) and larger city (Green Bay) offered a variety of activities, attractions, and shopping.

What makes this cottage unique

Morning coffee on the lakefront deck in the morning is our favorite time (sometimes sunrise). A huge variety of birds (Herons, Pellicans, Cranes, Eagles) frequently fly close by. Evenings often end with a fireside (campfire pit) chat, and star gazing.

Peaceful secluded respite

  • 5 of 5

After a very stressful year, my husband and I had no idea we found the pefect place until we arrived at this surprisingly roomy, secluded, homey cottage. Our old sheltie laid claim to the sizable deck as soon as we woke each morning, waiting for us to join her for the day, birdwatching, reading, laying in the hammock. The land, surrounded by trees on three sides with the bay in front, included a large front yard. As it was early spring, we watched the leaves unfurl and the geese, herons, and ducks heading north, some landing in the marsh grasses out front to build nests. Many fishing boats were out, but we preferred to photograph the (non-poisonous) snakes sunning on the rocks by the water. The cabin had a library filled with many favorite authors and about 100 DVDs obviously carefully chosen. With the curtains drawn back, the wall facing the lake was mostly windows, providing a beautiful view of the sky, trees, and bay. The cottage was well stocked and very clean. We walked some trails in the wildlife preserve, but mostly spent the week relaxing and enjoying the peaceful woodsy setting. The wifi is very slow (thankfully) so we could pull ourselves away from our technology. We enjoyed a couple of meals at The Dockside in Oconto, which served fresh fish and healthy choices among typical fare. The two of us went from tense to chill in one week.

Gem in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay. So peaceful relaxing on the dock or deck with our dogs. Incredible view and bird watching. You even provided the binoculars as we forgot ours! The cabin is decorated so nicely, very comfortable and very well-appointed. We were cooking one night and had forgotten the Italian seasoning. I looked in the cupboard and found a container there! You've thought of everything to make your guests feel welcome...especially the "Welcome Binder". We really enjoyed the selection of music and books. Fishing was tough...there's always next time...just nice to be on the water. Looking forward to our return visit this fall. Thanks again for sharing this gem in the woods!!

Quiet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year we've spent a week at the cabin. We love staying here. You feel like you're on a little island surrounded by nature. The cabin feels so homey and comfortable. My favorite morning activity was sitting on the dock with the dogs and a cup of coffee and hearing nothing but the gentle waves and the birds. It's paradise! We will probably stay again this year. Can't wait!! Too bad we can't see a Packers game in the summer.

Great homebase for Packers game

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our time at the cabin. Very well-appointed and we loved spending some time in Oconto. Very easy drive into Green Bay for the game on Sunday. Would definitely recommend to others!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there for about 5 weeks in 2015 and it was a great place. Excellent spot to hang out on the lake, excellent for kids with hiking, shallow water for tadpoles, forest, etc. The host family is extremely nice, and the place was everything we hoped it would be.
