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 Wautoma

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!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our 3 generation family and just as advertised. We enjoyed kayaking (the first time for everyone), the row boat, fishing off the pier, games on the screen porch and air hockey in the basement. We also visited a nearby splash pad, local shops and fishery. We used the grill and the fire pit. The real thrill was seeing an eagle perched in the tree outside the front window. We hope to visit again. My grandsons love the "blue house".

Just as great as last year

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a bunch of guys/family ranging from 25 to 59 years old. Spend day on the ice fishing(not as much catching this year), come back, cook meat on grill, and play in the basement. Lots of space, John and Cindy were very responsive to a minor issue we had with a warning message on the thermostat. No complaints from anybody.

Lovely lake setting

Some words that summarize our stay are...beautiful setting in natural surroundings, comfortable accommodations, lots of fun for all on the swim raft and a chance for the "little guys" to fish.
