Wonderful lare house

  • 5 of 5

This place is an amazing place to stay. It was very clean, warm and inviting. The place was decorated for Christmas and was just the place we were looking for. There was a snow storm while we were there, and the place was plowed immediately. I will definitely beg to rent this place again.

Awesome Vacation Spot with family! very relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at the cottage! The owner was very nice and pleasant and gave us great directions since we had no idea where we were going. The cottage was nice and big and it was such a great place to relax. The lake is amazing and very quite. I'm looking forward to another stay and was thankful we found this little hidden gem on a private lake. Thanks so much!!!! See you again next year!!

Weekend getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place. We enjoyed completely throughout our stay. The cottage was beautiful, large, comfortable and was extremely clean and well maintained. The kitchen had all the basic stuffs. There was this beautiful lake down the backyard where we swam and had fun. The owner had few life jackets and swim tubes which helped us a lot(who dint know to swim ;)). Recommended for everyone!!

Zero stars, really

  • 1 of 5

This space is way too small to list all the problems we had with this owner and this cottage. The lower level was exceedingly damp and uncomfortable with standing water under the area rug. The kitchen lacked many basic items. There was no backup propane tank and when I tried to call the owner about some of these issues she did not respond. The picture of the lake is misleading - it's down a long, steep incline which was difficult for us as seniors. I tried to negotiate a partial refund on the basis of the horrible basement bedroom but the owner will not talk to us. This could be a decent vacation rental with an involved owner.

Owner's Response: Hello, First of all I would Not recommend Margaret from Edgerton WI. to anyone. Difficult people from the start. She reserved for 3 adults, when there was 4 adults. When it was extra money for the 4th person she didn't like that. There is no hidden cost, on my web site the rate is all listed clearly. Swan Lake Cottage is a nice clean place to stay, everyone who stays enjoys the time they are there. This year I had many return guests. The walking trail to the lake, is a down hill slope. Pictures on my site reveal the slope I have a newly L-Shape Dock over the lake, with bench setting.The lake is rocky on the bottom, although unsure of any large boulders that were mentioned in review. Most of my guests have enjoyed swimming and jumping off the dock. If you choose not to swim you can take the paddle boat or canoe around the lake that is provided, or sit around a camp fire and enjoy the view. On their last stay at the cottage. We had 2 3/4 inches of rain the window in the furnace room was open with provided water to came in, which caused the area rug to become wet. I have many large windows in that area that could have opened up to air out that area. I have a total of 18 lamps in the cottage and 9 over head lights .If one light bulb burns out it would be no problem to get a lamp from another room. There is also some extra bulbs in the broom closet as well. Margaret spent most of her time finding things to pick apart TRYING TO GET MONEY IN RETURN. The other time she spent moving all my stuff around from one room to the next. I'm sorry she did not see the good things the cottage offers. The kitchen offers many items, possibly not everything, it wound be impossible to provide everything. There is a near by Dollar store to pick up other items you may need. Complaint regarding the tv room, there is a picture of the tv room right on the website. The basement is a walk out basement, if the basement becomes damp with lots of rainy weather there are two other bedrooms upstairs if one chooses. Also in the living room the new couch goes into a full size bed as well. Running out of room to respond to all the other small complaints. I don't feel I personally could have satisfied this guest. The gas grill is a added benefit, the tank had gas in it, when I went there to clean the value was turned on and I could spell gas. There would have been enough for the time that was spend. I LOOK FORWARD TO ALL THE HAPPY FUTURE GUESTS. THANK-YOU DANNA

Awesome Lake Home on beautiful quiet lake. This Grandmother and three grandchildren vacationed for one week last summer. We had a marvelous time, the kids swam their hearts out and fished off the dock. The canoe and paddle boat was used for fun and fishing. We walked, hiked and biked...Bonfires at night..The Kids got a big charge out a SAUNA! Visited many attractions around the area. The Cottage is beautiful, large and very comfortable, with wonderful amenities. I looked, a long time, for a SAFE PLACE, to vacation with my grandchildren. I recommend this to all grandmothers who want to spend special time with their grandchildren and build good memories.

Everything was top notch and A1 condition. The owner left us free coupons for the famous "ICE CREAM SHOPPE" in near-by Florence WI.
