Waterford House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Perfect cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin in Waterford was exactly what we were looking for. My wife and two of our friends stayed for a weekend on the way from Michigan to Minnesota. The cabin was very comfortable and cozy.

Check in was extremely easy. We arrived after dark and had no problems getting into the home and getting comfortable. The fireplace was ready to go, all we had to do was light it. Also, there was a nice bottle of wine on the counter waiting for us.

We cooked a few great meals there and had all of the pots, pans and utensils we needed. One thing to note is that they only have salt & pepper, so if you need more spices pick them up yourself.

The backyard was great, backing right up to a river. We had a great campfire out there and enjoyed watching the ducks!

It was really nice having 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. After a long drive it was great for everyone to have their own space. Also, having laundry was super convenient.

The location was great as well! We were less than a mile from a grocery store with everything we needed.

Overall, our experience was perfect. I couldn't have asked for anything better!

Relaxing and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our get away. Thankful that we could bring our pups. The weather was cold, but the wood burner helped with that. There was a very strong odor in the water. Bring bottled water. The fenced backyard was great for the dogs.

Perfectly awesome

  • 5 of 5

We booked the lake house because we were attending the UW-Whitewater football game/parent's weekend. Not being very familiar with the area, it was kind of a gamble. But the lake house was the perfect stay.

It's clean, roomy, and updated. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen was well supplied. Having a laundry was a huge plus. And a wood burning fireplace capped off our nights.

Gordon and Valarie were very accomodating. The communication prior to arrival was clear, and check in was a breeze. Everything about the lake house was explained for us. They had a binder of restaurants/menus so we didn't have to go searching around for places to eat.

We enjoyed our stay so much, we cancelled our remaining night in Chicago just to stay one more day at the lake house.

Gordon & Valarie, we can't thank you enough. It was an incredible stay. Looking forward to booking it again next year.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our two daughters and their husbands, and our two grandsons (two years old and two months old) very much enjoyed our time together in this lovely cottage. The open kitchen/living room was perfect, especially considering that the weather was not perfect during our stay. We had plenty of room to play games, read books and take naps---the perfect vacation for all of us! We were able to take walks in the very quiet neighborhood, walk out on the pier to watch the ducks and cranes and enjoyed some kayaking and paddle boating. Grant gave us all the info we needed well ahead of time and was kind enough to let us have a leisurely check out time. A good time was had by all!

Cozy and fun place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

Property was as advertised. We enjoy Kayaking, biking , the fenced in back yard for the dog, the quiet neighborhood. It was convenient to everything we wanted to do. The "invitation" was to there to do more than we could manage in a week's time.

Elm Island provided the perfect location for a relaxing family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Grant is a wonderful host with a great vacation rental in an area of the state we had not previously discovered. The home is clean, comfortable and well appointed. The surroundings are beautiful and tranquil, providing the perfect backdrop for a relaxing get away. We explored the area with the complimentary paddleboat and also rented a pontoon boat from the marina for a day to go further beyond the Elm Island area. We love this Elm Island gem and will definitely return again in the future.
