Why Lynn Thomas chose Wautoma

This cabin was the perfect place to get away from the city. It gave my family the opportunity to sit back and relax. It is a great place to get together with family and friends.

What makes this cabin unique

This is our personal cabin we have remodeled and decorated over the past 7 years. This is a very special place for our family and friends. As our children have gotten older we have not been able to spend as much time at our cabin so we thought we would share our cabin with other families to make great memories.

A perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at the cabin! Everyone came home relaxed and refreshed. The photos hardly do it justice! The cabin is so perfectly decorated and cozy. The beds were very comfortable. I can't say enough good things about it, we'll definitely be back!

Great place!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the place! Clean and in great shape! We were disappointed when we got there that there was no wood for the wood-burning fireplace. I had asked Lynn earlier if the fireplace was a wood burning fireplace and she had said it was. She didn't mention that there was no wood provided. We spent part of our first evening driving to Wautoma and back to buy wood for the week-end. I was a little surprised that we didn't get a call anytime after we arrived to see if we had any questions or needed anything. The boys (12 and 16) loved the wii games and game machines!! They even survived without wifi!!

Thanksgiving get away with the family

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was beautiful Plenty of Room The pictures that they have on the website Are good but when you get there you are totally Amazed ...Beautiful property only downfall is if you have Sprint or AT&T you are limited for your service unless you going to town sometimes we did have reception in parts of the kitchen and the front porch ..Which was fine Because you spend more quality time with your Family ..Definitely would love to go back there at a different time of year when everything is in Bloom ..Very cozy

If you want to experience log cabin living this is the place to go .

Really enjoyed it...I could see now why the owner Lyn said this is her favorite place to be.. truly a hidden gem !! If it was for sale I would buy it in a heart beat ..Would never get tired of being there.

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

We stay at a different cabin like this every Fall and I will say that this one is definitely one of the nicer ones we've rented. It was very clean, the appliances (kitchen, tvs, and washer/dryer) were all nice and updated, and the grounds outside are beautiful and private.

The owners built a great path to take you about 100 yards through their wooded area down to the Mecan River. The river was pretty narrow and shallow when we were there, but crystal clear. I don't think there was enough water for fishing or kayaking, but it's pretty down there, and it looked like it might be fun to wade in during the summer months.

There are two old school arcade games in the basement however one of them wasn't working while we were there. Not a big deal at all, as there's a Wii and collection of games if you're dying to play video games.

Two Oaks golf course in Wautoma is great Wisconsin golf and is only about 15 min from the property. The staff there was incredibly friendly, and the course is great for the money.

Lynn was great to work with. She was quick to reply to my questions and was flexible with the Check in time.

Worth mentioning to potential renters that there is no wifi and the cell phone connection was non-existent. This is part of the charm of place like this, and Lynn did warn us in advance. That said, I didn't expect that the entire property and surrounding area would be completely without service. Only 1 out of 7 of us ever had a signal while we were there.

Overall this is a great house that looks ever better in person than it does in the pictures.
