About the property

This beautiful lakefront home is the perfect retreat for family gatherings! This 7 bedroom/4.5 bath is perfectly perched to enjoy all that Lake Beulah has to offer. The 4 acre lakefront property has 180' of prime lake frontage and is both private and tranquil. The grounds also have an original dairy barn that enhances the charm of the property. There are many amenities and high-end finishes throughout this restored and historically significant home. Lake Beulah is an extremely clean spring-fed lake with over 800 acres to enjoy, which makes it the ideal lake for boating, swimming, fishing, and sailing. The large dock provides a perfect place for diving off or just relaxing and taking in the joys of lake living.

This renovated home has over 8000 sq. feet of living space on 3 levels with 5 bedrooms on the 2nd floor and 3 bathrooms, as well as 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the 3rd floor. House is complete with hardwood floors throughout, A/C, and ceiling fans. All bathrooms are newly renovated and are finished with Rohl fixtures. The master bedroom is extremely spacious with fabulous lake views and the master bathroom is finished in Carrara marble and granite with separate sinks, shower, and Jacuzzi tub. Two other bedrooms on the 2nd floor have queen beds, another one has a full bed, and one has twin beds. The 3rd floor has a queen bedroom, and a bunk room with 5 twin beds. The well-appointed gourmet kitchen has a 48' Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, 48' Thermador professional range, and 2 Miele dishwashers all in stainless steel, with an adjacent butler's pantry. There are two large family rooms, one on the first floor and one rotunda room on the second floor (with television, dvd,and X-Box gaming system), both with beautiful views of the water and sunset. The dining room offers generous seating for ten people and has an original leaded glass window and beautiful built-in hutch. The billiard room is complete with an original mosaic fireplace and views of the lake. There are two screened in porches, one with casual dining for 6-8 people, a loveseat and television. The expansive porch that graces the lake side has plenty of seating for conversation and dining, and of course a porch swing that completes the idyllic setting. All of the bedrooms are roomy and tastefully decorated; the house will sleep 16 in beds.

Boat slip(s) and jet ski docks available.

This magnificent estate provides the perfect escape for an extraordinary vacation!

About Amy Rowe

We are an active family of 5 from the North Shore of Chicago.

We love sharing the joys of lake living with our friends and family. The proximity of Lake Beulah to Chicago is one of the many advantages to our close but you feel like you are removed from everything!

Amy Rowe purchased this estate in 2004

Why Amy Rowe chose Southern Wisconsin

We loved the historic significance of the expansive property(4 acres) and the proximity to Chicago. The character of the home can not be duplicated and the sunset setting is ideal for unwinding. We loved the idea of a large home that we easily could entertain many people. The spring fed lake is exceptionally clean and the boat traffic is very safe. We found that Lake Beulah is one of the few lakes in SE Wisconsin that has wake rules before 10am and after 6pm on the weekends which enhances the peaceful setting.

A Great Place for a Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

16 of us (ages 1 yr. to 88 yrs.) spent a fantastic week in August at this big, classic, lake home (with a Chicago style shady background!). Everything from linens and towels, kitchenware and appliances, furniture and lighting, reflects taste and style as well as a priority on beauty and comfort. Details in furnishings, design, and upscale but very comfortable room decor add a sense of grace and luxury without being overbearing or intimidating. There's plenty of space for everyone and everything. We played bocce ball on the lawn overlooking the lake, kayaked, fished (the 4 year old caught a nice sized trout that became part of our hors d'oeuvre spread for dinner that night), took cocktail cruises, swam and just sat around on the front porch catching up. We enjoyed morning walks on the property and on the rural lanes that surround this estate, played pool, read bedtime stories on the porch swing and ate very well from the grill and the superb kitchen. Old parents, new parents, preschoolers, college kids, and babies all voted it one of the best of our vacation-home-renting experiences, and there have been many. Amy has created a wonderful home on Lake Beulah and is a great person to work, with in all the ways I can think of.

Fabulous Old Home

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my Mom's 70th birthday and Mother's Day at this fabulous home! The home accommodated our family of 17 perfectly. Working with Amy was a pleasure and she ensured that our stay was perfect. The kitchen and dining rooms were ideal for family meals and well stocked. The older grandkids loved the pool table and ping pong table. Fishing from the dock, a polar plunge and flag football on the spacious lawn were highlights. The beauty of the home added special ambiance to a glorious weekend. It was such a joy to spend time in such a grand home. We would rent it again in a heartbeat!

Family Reunion June 2013

  • 5 of 5

This property was ideal for our group of 9 adults and 7 children. The bunk room was perfect for 3 boys ages 10, 8 and 6 (and could have slept more). The rest of the family found cozy accommodations in other rooms on the second and third floors. The second floor family room has a ping pong table, TV, and a great view of Lake Beulah. The kitchen was a joy to work in, and the outdoor grill was used two of the three nights we were there. Everyone's favorite meeting place was the front porch overlooking the lake. This grand, old manse was stocked with everything we needed, including 16 beach towels! Everyone loved this year's family reunion location.

Wonderful Find

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly magnificent. My family rented it for a fall weekend to celebrate my father’s 80th birthday. It is elegant, well maintained and beautifully decorated. The Victorian charm is well maintained with subtle, tasteful modern upgrades. The kitchen is world-class. We prepared prime rib for 14 people with no stress or hassle. We were concerned we’d not have enough to do at a lake house in the fall, but we had plenty. It was beautiful weather, so we were able to go on walks, shop, go to the pumpkin patch and even kayak on the lake. The lake was beautiful and much larger than we had imagined. The massive yard is fun to explore, including peeking into the windows of the barns and milk house. We even saw a fox scurry by. Indoors, the kids took full advantage of the pool table while the adults talked and chatted around the large kitchen island or in the spacious living areas. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. And learning that the home was the vacation estate of Al Capone’s bookkeeper only added to the intrigue. A real find and great base for a wonderful family celebration.
