Wautoma House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 17)

We are renting our large home on Irogami Lake in Central Wisconsin. It is located in Wautoma on the northeast shore of the lake, with 175 feet of crystal clear shoreline.

Irogami Lake is a beautiful spring fed lake tucked away on the side of the woods of Washara County. It is a great lake for sailing, boating, fishing, waterskiing, tubing and swimming. The lake is teaming with Large Mouth Bass. Many consider this lake Wausara County's best kept secret for fishing.

The beautiful lot is partly wooded for privacy. It has a gently sloping lawn right down to the edge of the water. There is plenty of room for yard games and lounging. There is a private dock for you to tie your boat or jetski. There is a gorgeous view of the lake from the three tiered deck. With the size of the deck it is a favorite place for our guest to lounge, play cards, or sit and read a book.

Enjoy the warm sunsets around the bonfire just feet away from the lake. This getaway has the feel of the northern woods without the hours of travel time. Graced by tall pines, oak, and evergreen trees, our home is a incredible place to get away from the busy world.

Wake in the morning to a cup of coffee and and a chair waiting for you on the pier. Settle in at night around a roaring bonfire with s'mores or favorite beverage.

Our home is wonderfully furnished. The great room has a vaulted ceiling, a large stone fireplace, and plenty of comfortable seating. Settle in with a game of cards with the guys or stretch out on the chaise lounge with your favorite book. The dining area is spacious with a custom made table that seats up to 12. Also provided is a 51' television set with satelite dish to watch sporting events or chill out with a movie on the DVD player.

The newly furnished kitchen is completely up to date and has brand new appliances including a dishwasher, range and electric oven, and a microwave oven. We also have a second full size refrigerator for overflow foods and beverages. All that is needed for serving is conveniently provided, including dishes, glassware, silverware, serving pieces, cooking utensils, and small appliances.

We have a large extended family so we took everything into consideration when planning the bedrooms. Over looking the lake is the master bedroom on the first floor which has a king size bed with a 32' HD television set. The other bedroom on the first floor has a double bed and 2 twins that also overlook Irogami Lake. In my opinion, the best asset of the cottage is the second floor. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs. The first is a bunk room that has 2 single/double bunks and a trundle bed. Another two bedrooms have a queen bed in each, and finally a fourth room that has three single beds. There is plenty of room for the kids upstairs but also some privacy for the adults! Some homes on VRBO and other sites boast of sleeping arrangments and when you get there you may be greatly disappointed with the lack of sleeping space. At our home, all 17 of you will have a great night sleep in a comfortable bed. There are a total of 14 beds in the cottage.

Within five minutes there are two great golf courses for a total of 45 holes of golf. Both courses are beautiful and challenging. Wautoma has also a beautiful downtown area that brings you back to they way life used to be. Stoneridge Market is known for their great cuts of steak and a variety of resturants and pubs coat the downtown area.

Why Chris McGalloway chose Central Wisconsin

We coin this vacation spot 'Hour Getaway' because it is a short hour drive from our home in Fond du Lac. It is centrally located with Appleton, Stevens Point, Oshkosh, and Wausau all within an hour's drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay was wonderful. Your house was soooo much better than the house we rented last year. I can't even begin - we had so much room to spread out and relax, it was great. If we could have taken your dining table home with us, well, we would have. It was so nice to sit down with the whole family around one table and have dinner every night. And to have room in the kitchen to prepare dinner each night (and snacks throughout the day).

We loved your house, and would highly recommend it to others. The location and the property are great, and everything was as stated in the listing. The beds were comfortable, the extra refrigerator was a savior, we didn't use the downstairs much because we had great weather but if it had rained I'm sure that would have been a blessing.

Thank you,
Jul 2013

average rating of 4.125 based on 10 reviews


  • 4 of 5

The house is very clean, roomy and well stocked with silverware, serving utensils, dishes, appliances, pots pans, sheets towels, pots and pans, dvds, books and games for 16 people - wow. The deck is big with nice furniture and a propane fire pit and great view of the lake. The water is shallow and has a sandy bottom - great for little ones. The air hockey and ping pong in the basement are another hit. There is plenty of firewood around a nice fire pit. There was ample parking for our five cars. The location is remote enough to feel like the north woods. We will be back.

Yes to all the questions under 'Tips for writing reviews'. We wish the lake was a little deeper around the raft.

Great for large families

  • 5 of 5

We had never stayed at this location before but found the on-line descriptions and pictures very helpful in determining this would work well for our family. The house was well groomed and had everything you would need - including bath and beach towels, hand soap, laundry detergent, some starter paper products, and an extra refrigerator for beverages or freezer storage. The lake was sandy bottomed, quite thick with sand, and the grandchildren enjoyed the floating raft.

The owner was always readily available for questions and responded to all needs quickly. We would love to come back!

Peaceful, relaxing, large family lakefront home

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for our large family vacation together. The grounds and lakefront are very spacious. The lake is shallow with maximum depth of approximately five feet, but was never a problem and was perfect for the our 4 & 9 year olds to swim in without too much worry. You can rent motor boats from marina in town, if desired, but they don't rent jet skis. There are two kayaks available for use and they are perfect for a cruise around the lake or for a little fishing. We all enjoyed them.

The home itself is beautiful with plenty of space for sleeping comfortably, dining together as a group, and gathering for board games, etc. There was plenty of room for cooking and large counterspace.

The deck is large and has nice, comfortable furniture to sit out and watch the sun set or have your early morning cup of coffee.

The owners are wonderful people and are accessable and easy to work with. They made for a pleasurable relaxing stay.

Highly recommend a stay at this home.

Just completed our second stay and we are just as happy and satisfied as we were last year. The owner is most accommodating and attentive and the home is perfect for a large family. All beds are comfortable and the home is very clean. A wonderful place for great memories, family interaction and relaxing.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great week at this home. From the time we walked in we were amazed how big and spacious the house was, You can tell how it was decorated and they take great care of there home. The location was great too. There was a total of 8 adults & 10 children ranging from 2 months to 10 1/2 years old. Never felt crowded at all. Plenty of comfortable beds. There dinning table was so great, enough room to eat at, and beautiful. We were also happy to have the 2nd refrigerator. There were games for the kids and adults. The deck and yard was so nice that it was close to the water, but not too close and a gradual slope, which was great with all our grandchildren. The lake was perfect for all the children to swim & adults. We enjoyed kayaking very much. We all wanted to stay longer. Hard to believe how fast a week can go by when you are relaxing & having fun. We appreciate the owners for giving the opportunity to stay at there home. Thank you again!!!
