About John and Cindy

We both grew up in Wautoma, left for college and returned to raise our family here.. We have been married 30 years and have two grown daughters. We love living in such a beautiful location and enjoy the small town.

John and Cindy purchased this house in 1994

Why John and Cindy chose Central Wisconsin

This home was a private home until recently and we are now offering it as a weekly rental because we feel it is in an absolutely beautiful location on Porters Lake.

What makes this house unique

No adjacent neighbors, private wooded location on beautiful Porters Lake. Steps to your own private pier, great fishing, abundance of wildlife. Spot the Bald eagles, and Sand hill cranes as they fish the lake!

The accommodations were great! Plenty of room and a very private setting

  • 4 of 5

Eight guys getting together to fish and have a reunion, it was the perfect place. Everything that was offered in the advertisement was true to form. My only issue was that it may be time to update the grill, I think its seen better days. This was a minor issue though.

Our hosts were also very attentive and helpful!

Great Escape.

  • 4 of 5

There was really no reason to leave the property for the entire week, it has all the creature comforts of your home. We had little children and this was important to create some routine. When we did leave it was very convenient to town, just 7 minute drive. We had a great time!

Perfect for a college reunion

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our college reunion! It's secluded enough to allow our group to stay up late and not disrupt any neighbors. Has a great screened in porch for any activities and the game room in the basement is ideal. We made good use of the kayaks as well. The lake is quiet and peaceful. The house offered many bedrooms and sleeping arrangements. Really appreciated that there were enough towels to go around. Loved having two full bathrooms as well. Owners are great, even when we called a little late to let them know their dog was visiting us! We were already planning our trip back next year before our current one ended!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a motley crew of friends who just recently moved to Milwaukee. One of our nearest and dearest was leaving after two years of friendship and we wanted to do one last get together. The house was secluded, with a large yard and fire pit, and plenty of space to house our 10+ people. The owners were great, very easy to communicate with over email and even left fresh firewood for the fire pit for when we arrived. The owner did briefly drop by to see if everything was okay when we arrived. The house has ample supplies and equipment. Great stay!

It is important to us that your stay is enjoyable so we try to touch base once when our renters first arrive to answer any questions. Many memories are made around a campfire, it is our pleasure to provide firewood for our guests. Thanks for your stay and we hope you can join us again. John & Cindy

Secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

12 guys stayed on Porters lake the weekend of 3-18/3-20 planning on having an ice fishing weekend. Well, Mother Nature had other plans. I will tell you what, it didn't matter! This place is an absolute blast no matter rain/shine or ice/no ice. Very secluded feeling and absolutely relaxing house! The kayaks and rowboat were an added bonus. The basement is great as well. With the 3 game tables and concrete floors you don't have to totally worry about a little beer spilling. Mop it up and it's good as new. It is an awesome place to get out of the busy city life and enjoy nature. Cindy was very easy to communicate with prior to our stay. Next time I look forward to going back with my Wife and kids!! Thanks again John & Cindy

Emmanuel and friends!
