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!

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was absolutely perfect! Such an up North feel with the secluded driveway and house tucked back in on the lake. The water was crystal clear and warm. Perfect for swimming. You are able to catch some blue gills off the dock and a few northern out on the lake. The house has absolutely everything you could need. It was great to sit around the fire at night and the gas grill is large and seemed like brand new. Two very nice golf courses only about 10 minutes away. The last few years our group has gone to different houses and lakes in Wisconsin but it was unanimously decided this will be our vacation destination for years to come. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us.
