About Dianne Rago

My husband and I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and have always wanted a place on the water. We still are living in the suburbs but like to occasionally get away from it all and this home offers us that opportunity.

(Property is owned and operated by a licensed real estate broker with Charles Rutenberg realty of Naperville IL- per license law this needs to be fully disclosed-contact me for further questions )

Dianne Rago purchased this house in 2011

Why Dianne Rago chose Mukwonago

In 2011 we found the property that our current home sits on. The house that was there at the time needed to be torn down but we loved the view! We saw the potential of what the land had to offer and decided to make a go of it. Today, we are so thrilled with the beauty of the lake, the neighboring area, and near by towns we couldn't be happier. Every season there is something new to do.

What makes this house unique

The layout of the home offers the best views from the family room and outside deck. The yard faces the lake so kids can play while the adults sit on the deck and enjoy the view. The location of the house is off a private road and very surrounded by trees yet close to many small towns and Milwaukee all offering an array of things to do depending on your interests. We are making memories year after year and hoping others do the same.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We went to recover after hosting a long holiday week of family and out of town friends and this was the perfect place to do it. Relaxing and tranquil. Went to Lake Geneva for a day and downtown Milwaukee but overall just a great weekend to chill out. Thanks

Great views!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you open the door at this lake house the views are amazing! This was our first vacation rental instead of the usual resort trips and we very much enjoyed it. We are a family of 5 adults and 2 children and the house would accommodate many more - it was great! My son and his daughter enjoyed the pier with fishing every evening. Seeing the 2 of them sitting on the pier with poles in the water just talking and laughing made the trip so worth while. We went into Lake Geneva, East Troy for ice cream and also got to experience our grandson's first zoo visit in Milwaukee. What memories! Mostly we stayed at the house and relaxed. Of course we ate our fair share of pie from the Elegant Farmer. I would also recommend Pierless Boat Rentals - Kevin is so nice and the pontoon boat was enjoyed by all. We will return - the views in the Fall must be breath-taking!

Owner's Response: Glad to hear there are many things to do on and around the property- come visit Mukwonago again soon; we feel the town has a special down home vibe with lots of amenities to go with it. East Troy ice cream shop and the nearby Zoo were a few places we had never tried so thanks for sharing- great review and we are glad you enjoyed the lake!

Beautiful house and accommodating owner

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house from 6/20-7/1. This was our first VRBO rental and Dianne was great to work with. The house is GORGEOUS with everything you need for your stay. Extra towels, spices, well stocked kitchen. The view from the deck and kitchen have to be the best on the lake. Lock box access so no waiting for owner. The lake was away from it all with a 20 min drive to Walmart and little stores in town. About 60 steps to the lake but they are secure and a great workout. Paddle boat also included with the house. We received our full deposit 3 days after renting. We rented a speed boat from Pierless Boat Rental and Kevin was great- arrived on time, gave us a tube & tow rope and tips about the lake.

We will DEFINITELY be renting this house again!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO many times in the past and this was our best house yet. Dianne was very accommodating for our last minute trip. The house was clean and well taken care of. Eating meals while overlooking the lake was nice. Kids enjoyed the bunk beds and the fishing. As the previous reviews have stated it is a great place to stay.

We always try and provide a clean home that is fully prepared for your stay so you don't have to do anything but relax. We thank you for taking the time to write this review.

Comfortable & conveniently located lake house!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a lake house not far from the Chicago/Milwaukee/Madison area to serve as our home base while visiting family & friends in those areas, and taking one of our children to a nearby college. This lake house suited our purposes perfectly, in terms of location. As the other reviewers have mentioned, it's fully stocked with amenities, easy to check in and out, with a responsive owner, and the house is quite comfortable. We were able to rent a pontoon boat from a local company for extra fun and entertaining on the lake, which is very clean (spring fed) and perfect for swimming. We also had a small party, and there are plenty of companies that were willing to cater in the area, even though it feels so nestled in the country. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.

50th bday girls weekend/family vacation

  • 5 of 5

At the front end of this trip I along with 5 girlfriends celebrated my 50th birthday. It was fabulous! The house is in great condition, very clean & spacious. The kitchen in particular is fully loaded! Dianne was great about answering any questions and even allowed my sister-in-law "cow" the yard for my birthday. When my friends left, my husband & 5 daughters arrived. We fished and sunbathed and paddleboated to our hearts content! Even though it was warm at night we also had a fire pit. There is plenty of space upstairs and down along with the deck and then the pier. This was a great find!

Perfect place for our teen group

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay while our teen group lead a Bible soccer camp in the area. Staying in a hotel for a week did not sound like fun to me. This home was a great option! We could all be together for some great fellowship. I felt as though I was at home! The property was so comfortable and clean. The home was well stocked from extra linens to paper products and laundry soap. I appreciated the use of the washer and dryer. The boys enjoyed the lake and use of the paddleboat as well as the fishing equipment. Lastly, the owners were quick to respond to questions and friendly. I would recommend this home to other small groups!
