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 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.

A beautiful and peaceful home on the Bay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family greatly enjoyed our stay at this waterfront retreat. The home is just as described and even prettier in person. The owners were very responsive and took care of all our needs promptly. We are definitely hoping to make it back some day!!

Fantastic Vacation Cottage that has it ALL !

  • 5 of 5

Once again your cottage was fantastic! This is the third time we traveled from Tampa, FL to enjoy this wonderful place. We are a family of four and we found tons of room both inside and out. We can’t think of a better location to stay while visiting family in Green Bay and taking in the sights. It is so nice being able to invite family & friends to visit us out here rather than always imposing on the hospitality of different family members.

You don’t have to over pack as the cottage has everything you might need including your own washer and dryer. Towels and linens are first rate and it all comes with a view you cannot beat. This trip we saw many deer, a beaver, wild turkey (not the kind you drink), all types of birds including one crane fishing for small fish off the longest dock in Wisconsin. This is a truly wonderful place to relax, or use as a base camp to day trip Wisconsin from.

The owner stocks the cottage so that it seems like you are coming home to your own cottage. There is a great fire pit for making s’mores or just sitting around and talking about the day’s adventures. Our card and board games (all stocked in the cottage) really gave us a chance to reconnect as a family.

The owner is very responsive to your needs and keeps the cottage fully stocked with the essentials. We have stayed at many rental vacation homes over the years, but none has ever make us feel like home the way this one does. If we were to rate this property, and owner, on a five star scale, we give them six stars! We will be back soon. Thanks for everything Donny! Your kindness and hospitality is greatly appreciated.

Great lakeview cottage

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cabin for my 4-person wetland sampling field crew from Minnesota. They found this cabin to be a great working base for their sampling on the west side of Green Bay. They said "There was plenty of space, everyone got a bed, and the washer/dryer in the bathroom was an awesome amenity to have (especially to dry wet clothes from the field!). The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook for ourselves, which was huge because it would've been a bit of a drive to go out to eat anywhere. The only somewhat negative thing we found was the lighting in the dining area/living room was pretty dim which made it a little hard to do our work at the huge dining room table (which was also super nice! Like I said, lots of space for us to do all of our work!). It would've been nice to be able to turn on an overhead light above the table and not just a lamp next to the table. We mainly really liked staying there and were all comfortable. We even took advantage of the board games they had there one night! The decor was also interesting, and we liked watching the wood ducks. So, all in all, we were very pleased with our stay."

As their boss, I need to find my crew lodging on short notice and make sure it is a comfortable place to use as home base. Donny was very responsive and helpful.

Green Bay Waterfront cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our pleasant stay provided a new Christmas experience for us! We arrived to a shoveled entry, clean interior, and a guidebook that included helpful directions and information about the surrounding communities. The chalet is attractively decorated, kitchen dishes and utensils are ample for full meal prep and serving, and the spacious bathroom was a real treat. The salient features for us were the gorgeous view of the bay, the huge dining table for games and meal fellowship and the cozy fires. We bought firewood at Kwik-Trip that was ready to use so nightly fires were effortless. The pet-friendly feature made this experience possible because we don't board our dog so that is another bonus of this rental. We would certainly book this home again; communications with the owner were very efficient and helpful.

Fantastic Lakefront Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic week up in this Cottage with our two dogs and teenage kids away from the hustle/bustle of everyday. The house is immaculately decorated, spacious, a ton of wildlife (we saw a pair of bald eagles in the nearby trees to complement the frogs and (harmless) snakes in the garden), great lake access with a couple of kayaks/row boat and super-secluded. The owner is a pleasure to work with and very accommodating. Getting into the local town is easy and there's a great little Supermarket for fresh food/provisions, etc. Seriously, nothing but good things to say. Thanks for a memorable trip.

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.
