Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with our children (ages 6 and 2) and the family dog! The house was clean and provided most everything we needed outside personal items and food. The location was perfect - we were able to make plenty of day trips to the local zoo, Devil's Lake beach, Ringling Bros Circus Museum, Wisconsin Dells, and enjoyed a few quiet days at home - the kids on the swing set or working their way through Disney movies available from the cottage, and a nice BBQ in the evening! The local shops were excellent and we found everything we needed and more. It was so comfortable and relaxing - a real home away from home!

Great place for a ski trip.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and had every amenity we needed. Perfect location for skiing both Devil's Head and Cascade. Six adults fit very comfortably here. T owner responded very quickly and returned my deposit in a timely manner. Everything you need for a weekend getaway. I will definitely return if we have another trip this way in the future. Thanks so much!

Had a great time, no complaints

  • 5 of 5

I didn't expect this place to be so well equipped. In addition to the amenities that are listed, there was also shampoo, clean towels, and laundry detergent.

Granny's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a place to stay that was close to Devil's Lake that allowed us to bring our two dogs. The home had everything for a comfortable stay. The cottage was nice, clean and peaceful. We love how close it was to Devil's Lake. We would like to return again next year.

Thank you, Naperville Illinois

Will not give back deposit!

  • 1 of 5

House was fine, dishes were dirty had to wash everything before using (not that big of a deal) Dirty soap bars left from other guests in the shower, as well as soap scum all over shower doors, Freezer and fridge had other peoples food in them.. Shrews (mice) running all around the house. Electrical is NOT up to code, legally it should NOT be rented! When we left Gretchen told us we would be getting a check sent in the mail with our deposit. Never revived one we have called her many times will not answer the phone! Sent many e-mail she started out by I haven't ever kept a deposit after telling her all the problems with the house now she stopped responding and has not sent our deposit back! I recommend never renting from her unless you feel like loosing out on money! Its been almost 2 months now still haven't received our deposit!

Cozy, well-equipped, well-stocked home close to great hiking at Devil's Lake

  • 5 of 5

Stop looking at other places around Devil's Lake. This is the best place! We loved it.

This bungalow offers the perfect combination of cozy and outdoorsy. All the beds were quite comfortable; there was a wonderful assortment of extra pillows and blankets tucked away. The kitchen is really comfortable to cook in. And we had all the utensils we could have possibly needed. Even Tupperware! The bathroom was stocked with tons of soft towels and linens. I never felt like I had actually left my home!

And the bungalow is surrounded by a small patch of forest. We saw Sandhills cranes in the near by cornfields. We took a few evening walks to check out the scenery. The location was so perfect for hiking - just a ten or fifteen minute drive from several trailheads. Parfrey's Glen was our favorite! It's quite an adventure!
