About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 18, Lake Front, Sand Beach, Swim, Boat, Sunsets,

Clearwater Retreat is nestled along the sandy beach of crystal clear Lake Irogami, amidst white pines, scotch pines and oak trees.

Enjoy your morning coffee rocking on the front porch as the sun comes up to welcome a new day. Take in breathtaking sunsets from the large deck overlooking the lake, or on your private pier. Gather around the bonfire, making s'mores on starlit nights, after grilling out on the cement patio. There's plenty of level grassy area for your favorite lawn games, and for kids to play. They will also enjoy the shallow, gradual, sandy bottom swimming beach.

Explore the 280 acre lake at your leisure, in the canoe, pedal boat or even fish for your evening meal.

Not to be outdone, the beautifully decorated interior of the retreat comes with all the amenities you seek, including a fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer, fireplace, flat screen TVs, and Wii.

Come enjoy 'Up North'!

Surroundings: Clearwater Retreat is located along a dead end street and not near any highways. No neighbors across the street....just the sounds of nature.

Our lakehome is located on the eastern side of Lake Irogami, which is the sandiest part of the lake's shoreline. Don't let those other rentals fool you! We are the real deal with hard, clean sand and quiet surroundings with easy access to the lake. You will get tired of those other places where you have to climb 30+ stairs just to get to and from the water.

Lake Irogami: Lake Irogami is a 280 acre swimming, fishing and boating lake. You can waterski, jetski, canoe, fish, swim, and tube. Pretty much everything goes. The lake doesn't get really deep (5 - 8 feet on average), yet it is deep enough for all the things you want to do and the fishing is great. Blue gill, largemouth bass and northern pike are some of the fish you might catch. There are 2 boat launches on opposite sides of the lake. You can bring your own boat and tie to our pier or there are boat rental places in Wautoma if you're interested.

Traditions: Our family started a tradition over 20 years ago by renting a lake house in Wautoma and every year we looked forward to that one week where we could get away and enjoy lake life. Now our kids look forward to coming up to the lake and enjoying everything there is to offer. Start your tradition....we can help!

Guestbook comments from the manager

My family and I had the most incredible time staying at this property. The house is clean, beautiful, and big enough for my extended family. We had both smaller kids and older ones stay with us and there was something to do for everybody. The lake was really warm and great for swimming. We fished off the dock using poles provided at the rental and the little ones caught fish! It rained one day, but we enjoyed the day watching the Brewers play baseball and movies on the flat screen TVs and playing board games that were provided by the owner of the property! We really had a wonderful time and wished we could have stayed longer.

Outstanding Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Organized a 4-day weekend retreat for my friends and had a simply fantastic time! Plenty of space, luxurious accommodations and the serenity, beauty and privacy of the northern Wisconsin woods greet visitors to this property. Misty and Bonnie were very pleasant to work with and saw to all our needs. The spacious interior never made any of us feel cramped and the two kitchens helped with our meal planning. The lodge's location afford easy access to nearby restaurants and supplies for meal planning in Wautoma. The property came complete with many useful kitchen devices, dishes, plates that made meal prep a breeze. I would definitely recommend this outstanding vacation rental!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at the Clearwater getaway. It was a week full of swimming, boating, and beautiful sunsets. The house was perfect for 12 people and had everything we needed. Our only complaint was that the internet was very slow and we ended up using our cellular data for the week. Thank you!!

Excellent cabin with everything you need on a beautiful lake

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was great and very accommodating for the 12 in our group. Bonnie was very easy to work with to set up our weekend get away. I wouldn't consider Irogami a fishing lake, but Silver and others are nearby if you like to fish. Patriots Pub in Wautoma and Sylvercrest were great also.

The location is perfect and its right by the lake and 15mins from Nordic mountain

  • 5 of 5

The property is quiet spacious and accommodated all of us (3 families) pretty well. Kitchen is well equipped and they provided towels and linens in plenty. TV has cable connection and there are some Books/DVDs too for the leisure time. Lake is right behind but its winters so its all frozen.

Bonnie is extremely helpful and available for any questions or concerns that we had. Infact she guided me to the location in the middle of night when my GPS was confused.

Overall we all had a fabulous stay there and if possible we are also planning to visit again in summers.
