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 15mbps Wi-Fi (December 2015) and 46" LED TV will keep you entertained if the fishing and lake cannot. Time Warner HD cable with approximately 20 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.

Staying in this home was an awesome experience and we could not be happier! The owner was extremely accommodating and his communication with us was outstanding! We really enjoyed our stay there and could have not asked for a better place to be for a few weeks

Great place!!

Everything at this place was excellent. Spacious, clean and on a nice location. I would recommend this place to anyone. The owner even went out of his way to return a forgotten item.

Nice house, enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

Had no issues, nice house in a nice area. We could have used a clean dish scrubber, but that is my only complaint. Would definitely stay here again.
