Nekoosa Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6 adults

Comfy, casual four season lake house. We have enjoyed this home as our family getaway for the past 13 years. If you want a cup of coffee in the morning watching the ducks land on the lake from the family room or lay in the hammock watching the sun set to the sounds of laughter, kids and boats....Yup, it's this place. The evenings can bring a bonfire in the fire pit by the lake and star gazing which will truely take your breath away. Keep your eyes open for the deer and wild turkey and don't leave your T-shirt on the deck, we have a little red squirrel that will eat it! If you are looking for a showroom rental this may not be for you. In other words, there are a few honey do's to be found but who has time for work when the lake is calling. It is definitely clean, neat, and very homey. Very family friendly!

Check out the ice fishing go to and type in Lake Camelot. The second video is us!

Why Jackie chose Central Wisconsin

Construction of Sand Valley, a new world class golf destination began in 2014. Sand Valley will be laid into the giant sand dunes in central Wisconsin close to Lake Petenwell, and adjacent to Lake Arrowhead's Pines Course. When completed, Sand Valley will have up to four Scottish-style courses, all designed by acclaimed golf course architects.

Experience fishing in all area waters. Lakes Arrowhead, Camelot, and Lake Sherwood offer healthy populations of largemouth bass, walleye, northern pike and panfish. Lake Petenwell is a must for the serious angler...year round. Every year Nekoosa's Walleye Days attract fishermen from far and wide. In winter, ice fishing enthusiasts flock to the water for monster crappies, walleye,and northern pike. What a great way to spend quality time with your family.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is on the lake front with a private dock and a small sand beach. The beach has a gradual drop off and is perfect for small children and adults alike. To help you relax, a love seat swing by the dock will definitely do the trick. During the day, fishing off the pier will get you crappies, sunfish and perch. Go out a little deeper for bass and trout. At night, sit by the fire pit and roast marshmallows, s'mores or just gaze at the beautiful star lit night. Wildlife abounds, it's not unusual to see deer, wild turkey and an occasional turtle crossing the road on your

way into town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Bill,

My wife and I wanted to tell you that we had a great time. The cottage was perfect and exactly the type of place we were looking for. We had a great time on the lake both fishing and swimming. Also, I think that we watched almost all of your movies ...great selection by the way...A couple of quick notes: We had very quick storm that blew through on Tuesday was incredible how strong the wind started blowing…3 of the tiki torchers tops were blown off. You may want to check them before lighting. We also had to use some of you charcoal, but went into town and bought a bag. We put the bag in the charcoal container below the bbq.

Anyway, thanks again for helping us create great family memories…we all want to come back again.

Well stocked and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with 2 other couples while attending a wedding in Wi. Rapids. Jackie's house was a perfect spot for the 6 of us. The setting is quiet and the view off the back porch is great. It has that real Wisconsin lake house feel to it.(Go Pack) The house itself was very comfy and laid out well. Being a chef by trade I was pleased to find everything in the kitchen was so well stocked. I didn't do much cooking but if I wanted to it would have been easy. If there was any downside for 3 adult couples is that the bathrooms are all separate from the bedrooms.

Jackie was very easy to work with before and during our stay. She responded to any calls quickly and was very accommodating. We would book a return stay without hesitation.

Thanks again,Jackie

Enchanting, Comfortable, Funky and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was such a fabulous place to go for a 'get-out-of-the-city' summer vacation! I grew up going to a cottage on a lake in Wisconsin and was craving the summer lake experience for a vacation. This lovely cabin lived up to and exceeded my expectations. The house is super-airy and spacious set right on the lake with a mini-private beach, sick, and cute red swing. The place is comfy for a couple, but also big enough to sleep 10+ without feeling too huge. The decoration was funky and inviting, with a great sense of style, yet it still made you feel like you could plop on one of the cushy couches for a nap. The beds were luxurious and the multiple bathrooms were convenient. We spent most of the time in the lake, kayaking, swimming, floating on rafts, grilling burgers, playing yard games, and cooking up s'mores in the campfire. The deck is big and has a full umbrella table that we used for coffee, reading, and meals. The large kitchen table was the site of some great board game playing. The views of the lake (from inside and out) and the stunning blaze-orangey sunsets are amazing. There are plenty of close-by convenience and grocery stores, and you gotta check out The Branding Iron Supper Club in Wis Rapids for a great steak or fish-fry, and old-fashioneds. Jackie was super-friendly, welcoming, and fun. We felt at home before we even got there. If you want a fabulously relaxing and beautiful place to unplug, chill, and refuel, this is it. We loved it so much we'll definitely be going back!

Perfect summer vacation lakeside cottage for family

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lakeside house for a week, we are a family of 6, with kids ranging from 4 to 19. It was so great to have so many things to use, we would go on bicycle rides, there were kayaks to use, a dock to fish off of, a basketball hoop and ball, and a small beach area and water with a sandy bottom, perfect for our kids to get into the water. The area seems very safe with friendly neighbors on either side and is very quiet.

The house was clean when we arrived and is updated. There was a DVD player and in the evenings when we didn't build a campfire, we would rent DVDs for the kids from the local gas station / supermarket to watch. The owner was very accommodating and quickly responded to any questions we had. The view from the deck was great, every morning we would drink coffee on the deck, overlooking the lake. We haven't had such a relaxing vacation in a long, long time.

We have rented several different cottages in central Wisconsin over the years, and this was the one that both my wife and I, along with our kids, loved the most. If we choose another central Wisconsin vacation in the coming summers, I'm sure they will want to return.

Perfect for our growing family

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and a spectacular lake view. Our family used to vacation on Lake Camelot and thought it would be the perfect get-away for my parent's anniversary and the 4th of July and this home certainly didn't disappoint. Jackie went out of her way to make the experience memorable for us and was so accommodating with any questions or needs that popped up along the way. Everything you could possibly need is in this home, including those random things you don't think of when packing. With 6 adults, dogs and a newborn baby it was a relief to come in to the home and have it be so immaculate and inviting that we could all relax and feel at home.

The neighbors on both sides of the rental home were incredibly kind and always made our family feel welcome. The best part of this home is the swing down by the pier, perfect for a cup of coffee in the morning watching the sun come up or watching your family fish/swim.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house on the perfect lake setting. We were on a family vacation with 3 generations of family and all of us had a wonderful time. The house is decorated in such a beautiful yet comfortable way. Jackie, the owner, is very warm friendly and very attentive. She has a lovely red swing down by the lake that my mom loved to swing on while she read, watched my son in the lake and just enjoyed the beautiful view. By the time we left my son who had never kayaked before was a kayaking pro. If you decide you have had enough of lake life the town of Wisconsin Rapids is a short drive with numerous stores, restaurants and even a small zoo. Jackie has the place stocked with movies and games that kept us busy for hours. I look forward to visiting again.
