Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)
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 Oconto
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.

Great lake front cabin! Had everything as advertised. It was a short ride to Lambeau field and the Packers won . Couldn't have asked for more .
Extremely clean and generously stocked vacation house. Very comfortable first floor queen bed (the only one we used). Nice, large bathroom with a great shower and convenient washer and dryer. Spacious kitchen with many cooking supplies. Huge table with more than enough room for meals and other activities. Large windows with a wonderful view of the bay. Very private lot with beautiful sunrises. Donny is great to work with, has organized, easy to use instructions and responds quickly to questions.
Relaxing With Nature!
Our family found this property to be ideal for our relaxing and rejuvenating week-long vacation. The house is tastefully decorated in a beachy, Ralph Lauren style and has been thoughtfully and well-equipped with everything you might need. The cabin is surrounded by woods and is the epitome of a private getaway.
Our children loved the bunk beds and the generous, lower bunks were so comfy that we often fell asleep with them! Our kids spent a lot of time catching frogs and snakes in the yard and working on their open- and closed-reel casting skills.
We loved the well-stocked library of books, board games and DVDs and took full advantage of trying new games, watching a movie every night, and I was able to read two big books.
We headed down to Green Bay for a Packers game and visited Marinette, WI/ Menominee, MI twice for shopping and sightseeing.
Oconto is a sleepy town that has a great grocery store (that makes incredible fried chicken) and a restaurant that makes award-winning pies. We had plans to eat at several other local places, but enjoyed cooking in the cabin so much that we decided to stay in!
And our dog loved every minute of his first-ever vacation.
We loved our stay at this cottage.
The cottage was perfect! We enjoyed our week and would def. recommend. We loved going out in the row boat, so peaceful and relaxing. Also went out in the canoe one day and really enjoyed that as well. The best thing about this house is how secluded it is - we could sit on the pier in the evening and enjoy the sounds of nature.....no one else around. We were lucky enough to have a bald eagle fly overhead one day. Our dog loved trying to chase the little frogs that were on the property. All in all a perfect week.
good property, high water level in bay affects experience, pier needs to be higher, thought in might float loose at one time with a storm surge, water level increased 14 inches in ahalf hour, also yard would flood at times
Straight shot down Hwy 41 gets you to Lambeau Field. Packer fans have really enjoyed our place to hang our with friends and family over a game weekend. All you need for cooking, grilling, and having fun is all there.
