Great Vac Home for Fall Colors in the Kettle Moraine and Erin Hills Golf Course

Bedrooms 4
Half Baths1
Space 4,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, one bedroom can be bunk room, den, sleeps 6-12

Our home is located on Lac La Belle in Oconomowoc. Less than a 30 minute drive to Erin Hills Golf Course, site of the 2017 US Open and close to the fall colors and the Kettle Moraine. The home is close to numerous restaurants in the area. The home is over 4,000 sq ft on a private drive. A great home for family or a get away vacation. The home is on the lake and in a guiet wooded area with great sunset views. The property includes a pier, and canoe(summer rental only). The lake is warm in the summer and the sandy beach makes it easy access for everyone including children. The lake depth while changes with the weather, the water depth along the shore by the home is typically low so young children can enjoy swimming in the lake. The roads within the community are great for walks and lake views.

Enjoy barbequing bratwurst on the gas grill and eating outdoor by the lake watching the sunset or playing lawn games on the lawn next to the lake. If you're looking for a wonderful large home that is large enough so everyone has their space in the home and open spaces to enjoy outdoor activities, fall foliage, this is the vacation property you're looking for.

Additional Comments about renting our home: The home has central air conditioning, free WI-FI and is smoke free so please smoking outside only * No pets allowed in the home or on the property

Why Jim chose Southern Wisconsin

This property has been in our family for a number of years. The home is now used as a family vacation home. Rather than sell the home, we prefer to rent out the home so other families can enjoy the home and make memories with their families. The home is located in a secluded area, but still less than a mile from the town of Oconomowoc. Everyone loves seeing the wildlife, fishing and swimming in the lake.

What makes this house unique

The home has a large great home, enough room for everyone, young children like playing in the large room, the sandy beach which is shallow is wonderful place for young children to enjoy the warm summer water.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The property is a charming, well maintained, and meticulously cleaned lake home. The house easily accommodated our group of 10 women-the kitchen large enough and adequately equipped to prepare gourmet meals for our large group, the dining and outdoor seating areas spacious, and even enough hot water for all of us to get cleaned up after a day of enjoying the lake, Lac LeBelle. Sleeping accommodations are wonderful-the bedrooms large, the beds very comfortable, enough blankets if the weather turns chilly. The great room is well designed. There is a large seating area and a couple of smaller ones.

The house is well situated on the Lake. From the great room there is a beautiful view across a wide part of the lake. Access to the water is easy-either from the small beach area, which is perfect for smaller children- or from the dock. At the end of the day one is treated to spectacular sunsets.

Customer service was excellent in that no issues developed. The process ran smoothly and there was not a single issue with the house.

I can’t comment much on the area. Most of our time was spent enjoying the house and the water. We did enjoy walks around the lake and exploring downtown Oconomowoc.

I would strongly recommend this property to family and friends.

Beautiful spacious home with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

Loved this beautiful home!! Stayed with 10 friends from college and had a wonderful experience and had more than enough room to be very comfortable and relaxed. The house was very clean and had all the amenities you would need for time away from home. The owners are great and very accommodating. Bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and comfortable and afforded us privacy as well. The floor-to-ceiling windows gave us a beautiful view of the lake and we spent much of our time sitting by the fireplace in the great room chatting and looking at the beautiful views. We also had fun sitting at the lake and enjoying the great breeze and water activities. The kitchen is large enough for cooking meals for a group of our size and there are also great restaurants in the area to enjoy. I highly recommend this property.

We returned this year for another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 college friends enjoyed our stay in this rental property so much several years ago that we returned for another gathering in early June 2017. The amenities of this property are perfect for our large group. There are sufficient bedrooms and bathrooms to meet the needs of 10 women! The kitchen has enough space for us to cook for our large group (the extra refrigerator in the garage gave us room for extra bottles of wine!). The large common area offered several areas to be together as a group. The long table was where we lingered to talk after our meals. We all sat around the couches by the fireplace for late nights chats. And, throughout the day, we all enjoyed the seating area by the large windows that offered a peaceful and beautiful view of the lake. During the times we were lounging outside by the lake, we took advantage of relaxing on floats in the water, canoeing, and paddle boarding (I had fun paddle boarding for the first time!) The owners are delightful to work with and provided excellent service. I would highly recommend this property to any family or group that is looking for a getaway for any length of time.

Wonderful experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a ladies get away... we were seven in total. We celebrated a 82nd birthday while staying at the Lake house. The house was very comfortable and very well appointed. The house exceeded our expectations and needs. We all loved the specious living room with gas fireplace.

We all agreed that we would like to make this lake home our annual destination spot. Loved the house!!!

Nice house - Not so nice owner

  • 2 of 5

Although this house is lovely, the description is not completely accurate and the owner decided to keep $50 of our security deposit accusing us of having damaged a chair. I have asked, very politely, several times for a description of the damage; and my only response was that it was "broken". That's a very broad adjective for damage. When I asked for a picture of the damage and a copy of the repair bill he said that his handyman was able to fix the chair and have it ready for the next renters who were expected the day we checked out. So, there couldn't have been much damage; and, the owner obviously didn't pay $50 to repair it. He still never explain how the chair was "broken". I asked my family, everyone who was with us on the vacation, if a chair had been damaged and all replied "no". I told the owner that we never even moved the chairs from around the table. My last email to the owner was last week and again he has not replied.

I might have overlooked some of the details below and given a better rating had the owner not been so hard to deal with:

The property is NOT wheelchair accessible. I told the owner in advance that our 29 year old son was a wheelchair user. The front entrance has one high step. The only other entrance has two shallower steps. Our son had to request and wait for assistance in entering and exiting. The bathroom door is not wide enough for a wheelchair to pass through. The upstairs bathroom does not have a typical door. It has saloon type swinging doors with a shower curtain. The 1/2 bath is outside.

When we arrived there was a note on the dishwasher stating that is was broken and a new one would be installed on Monday, which it was. Nonetheless, I had to hand wash the dishes for 2 of the 7 day vacation. There was also a note on the fridge saying not to use the ice maker as it clogs. We were to use ice trays. Not convenient for filling coolers. There was only enough propane for one meal on the grill.

The property is NOT a "short walk" to town. You could walk it, but it is about 2 to 3 miles away. Having a home that is truly walking distance to town has always been a selling point for us.

Our family has been renting around the country and Canada for 9 years and I have never had to submit a bad review.

The home is lovely as is the lake, but there are other lovely places to rent which are more true to description and have more co-operative owners.

Owner's Response: We strive to maintain a lovely home for our renters. When items break, we realize it may be an incovenience for our renters but we try to respond quickly to their concerns such as replacing a dishwasher. When renting homes in areas that are unfamiliar, we encourage our renters to ask questions and obtain information about the local areas. While some renters consider the walk or bicycle ride to town a short walk or ride. With all of the technology available today, potential renters can do alot of research on a property before renting it. We ask for a security deposit to cover the cost when items break, The sole purpose of the security deposit is to ensure we are rerimbursed when items break. From time to time items are broken which a renter may not realize were broken during their stay. This renter believed they didn't break the chair; however, the chair was broken and the renter has been provided with pictures of the broken chair. Rather than dwell on the $50 repair charge, here is what this renter wrote in our guest book before I returned all of their security deposit quickly except for the $50 to repair the chair. "We had a wonderful week with our childrenand gran-children Lovely home-perfect shallow sandy lake. We had a great time."

a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this lovely home. This is our second year renting and we can't beat the sandy bottom that is shallow enough for our kids to swim in to the end of the dock. Large home with enough room for all of us. Very clean. We enjoyed making memories here. Would rent again.

Great View ..... Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay although too short. Perfect location of house to the lake. Couldn't ask for a better view from the yard or the house. House was very, very

clean. Nice bathrooms with walk-in showers. We cooked and grilled out. Also ate at Spinnakers. Like the decor at Spinnakers. Very quiet and peaceful

location. 4 people had more room than we needed.

Welcome to Wisconsin's lake country. The perfect vacation area for fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, biking and golfing. Located close to Wisconsin's Kettle Moraine area, great for hiking, and biking.

Downtown Oconomowoc is just a short 1 mile walk from the home. On Saturday evenings during the summer months there are free concerts at the band shell on Lac La Belle in downtown Oconomowoc and outdoor movies at Fowler lake. You're also close to great restaurants who also serve famous Wisconsin Friday fish frys and you're close to Wisconsin's oldest and award winning restaurant The Red Circle Inn.

Being close to Milwaukee you're a short drive to Miller Park, home of the Brewers (MLB), world famous Milwuakee County Zoo, Summerfest (July), Wisconson State Fair (Aug), Milwuakee Art Museum.and Harley Davidson Museum
