About Dawn Bayer
Custom built this fabulous vacation home for family and friends. Needed a place to get away from the chaos of the 'normal' Monday thru Sunday. This is a place we can go with our children, extended families, and our friends to reconnect with each other, relax and enjoy all four seasons of the year indoors and outdoors. Once we pull into the driveway and see the house and lake, we feel refreshed and relaxed.
Dawn Bayer purchased this House in 2004
Why Dawn Bayer chose Friendship
The location is beautiful and so many things to do no matter what the season is! This is a 'home' not just another rental property! You will feel like you are staying in a home when you are here. Warm, inviting decor. Room for entertaining. This is a place to reconnect with each other, wonderful memories to be made. Enjoy the area with the people you love!
What makes this House unique
Beautiful Lake! Relaxing. Feels like a home not a rental property. So many activities on and off the lake. Absolutely love the location. You will not feel like a tourist, you will feel like you belong here, you will feel like this is your home during your stay. Other Attractions and Activities - Burr Oaks Winery - Whooping Crane Festival in Necedah (September) - Warrens Cranberry Festival - 4 Wheeling - Hunting

Great place, great house. This is a must
This home is definitely one of the best places we have ever rented. We had 11 in our party and had plenty of room. The house was very clean. My grandchildren loved the sand in the backyard. It definitely brings a beachy feel to the property. The fishing was great! We stayed right in the bay. Broke a few lines, but brought many fish home. We went to the county park down the road to swim. Nice beach and roped off swimming area. The fee was $5 a carload. We visited Wisconsin Dells, Baraboo (cute shops downtown), hiked at Roche-A-Cri and Devils Lake State Parks. Awesome views at the state parks. Castle Rock Lake is huge. Lots of places to go boating. Time flew by with many memories made. Thanks for sharing your home with us.
Best Place ever!
Great location and very comfortable! We had a group of 11, and trust me place th of seating. Never felt cramped and the boat was a charm!
This house is amazing and Dawn is a great host. So much fun and a wonderful area. Def would come back!
We, along with another family rented this house for a week in late July. As stated by other reviews the house is lovely and has almost every amenity you can think of. We even made ice cream two nights which was wonderful. We made full use of the fire pit almost every night. The shower in the Master Bathroom is lovely, but we ended up using other showers most of the time since the shower doors don't fit tightly and caused a flood in the bathroom each time. We rented the pontoon for the week also and visited many of the restaurants on the lake. The only disappointment with the boat is there is no ladder. If you have someone who has any physical disability (I have severe rheumatoid arthritis), it's very difficult to get into the boat from anywhere other than a dock. The owner of the property responded immediately to any of our questions and concerns. We had our dog with us and the lower floor was a perfect place for him. We would highly recommend this property to any of our friends.
Felt like home away from home!!!
Loved our stay... Place was so family friendly. Little ones loved all the sand by the house. Felt very private. So appreciated it being pet friendly - that is huge for our family. Some great places very close with super food!!
Local rental water activities, public boat landing across street, Wisconsin Dells is 20 minutes away, rentals for canoeing/tubing less than 10 minutes away, multiple water access to bars/restaurants Snowmobiling! Trail is right there! Weekend Special for Fall and Winter!!! ATV Trials too!
