About Mike Jilek

My family purchased this cottage in March of 2015. However, we had a cottage on Lake Winnebago that we rented out for a number of years.

Mike Jilek purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Mike Jilek chose Wautoma

We love the quiet bay, the beach, the trees, and the beauty of Silver Lake.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is located in the quiet Fox Tail Bay portion of busy Big Silver Lake. This bay is a no wake portion of the lake so it offers a safe swimming environment for kids and the best fishing on the lake. You have the best of both worlds with a great swimming beach and fishing right off the dock. The property is located on a quiet tree lined road with plenty of parking and a good size backyard with a large Rainbow Playset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your place at Silver Lake.

It is different being in Fox Tail.

The cottage had a great layout, and the grandkids enjoyed all of the toys. You must have young children.

You have put a lot of time and effort to make the place nice.

The deck was used every day.

We would be interested in the 4th of July week next year.

Beautiful view. Swimming was excellent but really wished the boat wasn't in prime swimming area.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in spite of the weather. Swimming was great. Loved the raft and dock. Place was very much like our lake cottage in Wild Rose. Sleeping accommodations were better than expected and 2 full baths really came in handy. Lots of parking. Swingset and toys for the kids made the rain barable. I would definitely rent it again.

Fantastic cottage for a peaceful family getaway with plenty of outdoor fun!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (6 adults and a toddler) just had an amazing, relaxing time at this cozy cottage.

The cottage is on a peaceful, no-wake area of the lake so we didn't have to worry about noisy boats and there was a nice little beach area for kids to play with all of the sand toys that are available. A resident heron made frequent visits to the beach and we also spotted one of the local bald eagles.

At night, the large living room provided plenty of space for us to all gather and play games and a ton of toys for the toddler to play with were provided.

The upper deck right outside the house has comfy furniture and a hammock so there was plenty of seating to read or relax in the sun and a large picnic table let us enjoy the outdoors while eating as well. There was also a great swing set and playground area at the front of the house.

The cottage is within easy walking distance (< 1 mile) to the Moose Supper Club which has a great outdoor deck and is also close to town (~3 miles) for easy grocery shopping.

The owner, Mike is wonderful and helpful and was always quick to respond to any questions that came up before and during our stay. Overall it was a great stay and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. We didn't want to leave! :)

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Nice home, with 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Clean with all of the amenities and very comfy. Lots of seating. Great deck with nice view of the lake. Good swimming area, and great fishing off the dock. Kids will enjoy the Sun Fish and Blue Gill they can catch. Everything you need is there, including dish network and WiFi. Ample parking too. There are stairs to down to dock and beach, but it is gradual and not too steep and has landings and railings. Close proximity to Wautoma, and just down the road from Moose Inn and Silver Crest- both good restaurants. Owner is awesome to work with and very responsive. We will be back!

Really great for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This is an accommodating house on an amazing piece of property. We travelled with 5 adults and 3 kids, and never felt too cramped or like we were running into each other. The kids loved the all-sand beach; there was no worry about the little ones being hit with a wave or stepping on something nasty.

We beached our speedboat each night and didn't even have to tie it off - foxtail point is so calm there was no worries about floating away. Since we were travelling after Labor Day, there were likely less people on the water than typical, so the lake was glass-smooth each time we went out.

Love this place; and we're going to be booking a longer trip next summer!
