Overview

About the property

Beautiful 3 bedroom 2 bath home on Elm Island bay off of the Fox River in Waterford, WI. This home has all of the charm of an up-north cabin, but is fully updated and just a short 30 minute drive from Milwaukee and less than an hour from Chicago's northern suburbs. Single story home with little to no stairs required to get to the water less than twenty steps from the back door. Wood burning stove and tongue and groove pine finishes give you that up north feel, but all of the updates will make you feel right at home. Laundry on the living level and two full bathrooms offer convenience and comfort. Sleeping arrangements for 11 if needed: Master bedroom features a queen size memory foam bed, 2nd bedroom facing the water has a bunk bed with full size mattress on the bottom and a twin on the top, 3rd bedroom has a bunk bed with full size mattress on the bottom and a twin on the top, living room couch pulls out into a queen size sleeper sofa, and love seat folds down into a single bed. Kitchen table seating for six or seven people, with additional stools and eating area at the island. All kitchen appliances are less than 4 years old, including refrigerator, stove, and over the range microwave. Bring your fishing poles and swim trunks - the Fox River and Lake Tichigan are abundant with Largemouth Bass and Catfish, and provide plenty of opportunity for Bluegills, Northern Pike, Walleye, and an occasional Trout. Lake Tichigan is great for swimming or boating, and there are more than one restaurants accessible by boat and provide docking. Bring your own boat and keep it on the private pier or take advantage of the complimentary paddle boat that is already in the water waiting for you. Pontoon rentals are available at the marina (River City Marina-Waterford) less than one mile down the river by boat or automobile. Elm Island bay is a shallow low-traffic bay off of the Fox River and is home to swans and abundant wildlife. Fishermen frequent the bay in search of Largemouth Bass, Bluegills, and Catfish, all of which can be caught right from the pier. Swimming in Elm Island Bay (off the pier) is not desirable due to shallow water, lillypads, weeds and mucky bottom. In the evening you can have a fire in the back yard or in the house, but the furnace will keep you warm if desired or central air is there to cool you down. Upgraded to 60 Mbps Wi-Fi (June 2017) and 46" LED TV will keep you entertained if the fishing and lake cannot. Spectrum HD cable with approximately 120 channels available and also HD upconvert DVD player. Please come relax and enjoy all that the beautiful Fox River and Lake Tichigan have to offer year-round.

Great for B-Day Surprise Getaway ! ! !

  • 5 of 5

Rented this property to surprise my wife for her birthday and invited her friends and siblings to spend the weekend with us. As for the property, it was a perfect quiet and cozy lake house as described. The best part was the back of the property overseeing the lake with a great area for us to hang out around the firepit. We brought camping chairs with us, but didn't end up needing them. We are foodies that used the kitchen to its full potential, but brought a few items we use frequently from our home.

The owner was very responsive to inquiries and checked in with us to make sure everything was in order. Communication via the Home Away/VBRO app was easy to use with the owner.

Beautiful Home & Location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our getaway to this lovely lake house. Spent some time on the pier and our little 4 legged friend really enjoyed the fenced in yard. The house is very clean and has everything you would need. The cruise restaurant had excellent food and was a short drive from the house. Grant touched base to ensure everything was up to our standards. He was very nice and made us feel welcome at his home. All around an excellent stay, definitely recommend this place!

Thanks, Grant for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: Thank you Nate - while we were jealous that you were able to break away from work for the time to take advantage of the 90 degree weather in early May and we were not able to ourselves, we are glad someone got to get out there and enjoy it. Thank you for the kind words and we hope to see you again in the future : )

YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!

  • 5 of 5

Our rental was just as described. A lovely cottage on the lake. We had extra time to go fishing on the dock (hint: we caught bluegill and bass just under the dock in the shade). Other family members with toddlers stopped by our cottage and the back yard was perfect as it was completely fenced in and we didn't have to worry about children near the lake. A nice touch to have a bottle of wine on the kitchen counter waiting for us upon our arrival. Our host, Grant, was very accommodating and easy to work with. Any questions we had were just a text away and immediately responded to. Perfect rental for a family wedding, and without any worries. Definitely recommend this rental!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great lake house! We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and a book of recommended area restaurants. We took our three kids and two dogs here for spring break and could not have been happier. Love the decor. Plenty of space and love the open floor plan. We enjoyed the lake, family time, campfires and a couple trips to Lake Geneva. The owners are very nice and quick to respond. We will be back.

relaxing Easter.

My Son and his wife and two kids spent Easter weekend at the place. I was able to join them on Saturday and Sunday and we spent time fishing, playing and enjoying the peace and quite.
