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)

Dianne Rago purchased this house in 2011

Why Dianne Rago chose Wisconsin

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.

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.

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!

4th of July Reunion at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My group had a wonderful stay during the 4th of July long weekend. After an exhaustive search for a rental property, it was refreshing to find such a perfect house with so many amenities available. It was perfect for a group with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. We were never on top of each other but could also spend time together in the kitchen/family room or on the deck.

The listing accurately reflects what the house looks like and what's available for use. I was even surprised to find so many amenities from spices and utensils in the kitchen to lawn chairs to extra air mattresses and wi-fi.

We were able to grill and cook all of our meals with no problem. We enjoyed the easy access to the lake on the private pier. Great views of the lake from the kitchen too!

It felt like we were secluded yet not far from grocery stores and gas stations if we needed something.

The finished basement is a great addition to the house. Our group had plenty of space to use inside and outside of the house.

The house was clean and ready for our stay. It felt like we were in a new home that was well maintained. It was an easy check in and check out process.

The owners were very responsive and willing to answer questions as my trip got closer.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are already talking about returning next year. I've already recommended this property to friends who are looking for a home on the lake without driving too far from Chicago.

Owner's Response: We pride ourselves on keeping a nice home so all our guests are happy. Being located close to Chicago and Milwaukee was one of our primary reasons for building this home in that location. Come stay with us anytime and thank you.

Perfect "home" away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for our family. The use of the paddleboat, water toys, games, etc. was fabulous. The home is very homey and clean--which is a must. We will definitely rent this home next time we are back in the area. Owners were responsive to questions and pleasant to deal with...if you are looking for a place just outside of the hustle and bustle of Milwaukee...this place is perfect (short 25 minute drive to Milwaukee).
