Lynn and I have owned our lake home since 1988. Long ago we used to camp in the Kettle Moraine State Forest and decided that it was such a beautiful and secluded area we had to have a place here that we could call our home away from home. It has been a dream come true (but not without expense) where we have opened nature to our son and daughter whom can someday do the same with their own children. Let us provide you with the ideal lake house for your family and friends to getaway and experience all the area has to offer.
Joe purchased this House in 1988
Why Joe chose Whitewater
The surrounding area is truly unbelievable and offers serenity and tranquility for a perfect escape from reality. There are countless hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, and boating activities in the summer and snowmobiling, ice fishing, ice-skating, sledding, and skiing activities in the winter. Rice Lake has very little boat traffic, as there are only 40 homes on the lake with few permanent residents. There are no marinas directly on Rice Lake, which limits visitors however; there is a boat ramp located on state park property if you wish to bring your own boat but be sure to obtain proper stickers and licenses. Speedboats and jet skis are welcomed between 9am-5pm with wake-free otherwise. Mornings and evenings are set aside for quiet canoeing or fishing or just sitting outside with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Our property is located in a wake-free bay so peace and quiet can always be enjoyed. For more action, Whitewater Lake (600+ acres) is right next door with a couple of marinas. There is no navigable access between the 2 lakes, just a spillover.

EXCELLENT HOLIDAY GETAWAY
Easy to find. Right on the lake. Great view and beautiful house.
Perfect Lake House!
We enjoyed our stay on the sleepy Rice Lake where we participated in every water sport we could! The house itself was a dream with so many things ready for us. We loved it!
This home is absolutely beautiful!
We had a wonderful time at the house! The home is beautifully decorated. The kitchen is fully stocked with any thing you'd need. The living room is large and has comfortable furniture. The bathrooms are very good sized. The entire house was very clean and updated. We played some of the games that were in the closet. We fished on the deck quite a bit and caught fish! The best one was a good sized northern pike and there were a lot of little blue gill around the dock. We brought our boat along but it was windy the weekend we stayed so we just rode around the lake for fun. Rice Lake was beautiful with the fall colors. We all had an excellent time and would love to stay at Joe's place again! Thank you for sharing your lake house! It's awesome!
Great location for a quiet get away. House was very clean , fully equipped & stocked for any size crowd. Large deck was great especially for any older guests that may not be to mobile. Information at house was very helpful as far as activities & restaurants in the area. Plenty of interesting history in the area if that is your thing.
A great place and highly recommended.
Wonderful Family Vacation
Our family of 5 truly enjoyed our stay at this home. Our host was very responsive and accommodating. All the amenities were available along with extras such as water toys, games, etc. This beautiful home is directly on the water and easy to swim off the dock. Boat rentals are available at nearby JNT Marina.
