It is nestled on a quiet residential street with a large yard, fire pit and place to park a boat! The kids can walk to the end of the street and play at the school playground on weekends, head down to the lake to fish or hang out in the basement and play some pool or air hockey.

The Cottage Lodge is 4.9 miles to downtown Lake Geneva, 5 miles to Grand Geneva Resort, 4.8 miles to Big Foot Beach State Park, 13.4 miles to Wilmot Ski Hill and 18 miles to Alpine Valley Music Theatre.

A Keurig coffee maker is also there, just bring your own pods. There is a TV in the living room with a DVD player and gets local channels. WiFi access is available as well. There are ceiling fans in all the rooms and window AC units are installed in summer. The basement is semi-finished and has pool table that converts into an air hockey table, a fun rumpus room for the bigger kids. There is a washer and dryer available in the unfinished portion of the basement.

Unlike some of the "in-town" places, we can rent for less than 30 days (Lake Geneva City Proper prohibits short term rentals). So book your summer fun now!

About The Owner

We have owned this cottage for years and loved the neighborhood so much we built our family home just two blocks away when we upsized. As lifelong residents we are proud of our town and would love to have you come to love it as much as we do. We are right down the street if you need anything during your visit.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2002

Why The Owner chose Pell Lake

This cute cottage has been upgraded over the years, but the cottage charm is still there with wood floors and the quirky things that come with older homes. It's a cozy home with good storage and a great size kitchen and yard.

What makes this cottage unique

The Lodge Cottage is a great location... we have the great access to Lake Geneva with the quiet neighborhood feel.

A great solution for small family or friends get together in Lake Geneva area

  • 5 of 5

This small house has been appointed for guests with great care. One can see the effort at friendly and inviting decorating. Everything one needs for a short stay is provided. It is in a quiet residential setting-perfect escape from the populated tourist areas. Yet, it is still close enough that travel to the popular destinations is a 15 minute drive away in any direction.

Perfect get-away!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was terrific, easy to find and well located about 15 minutes from downtown Lake Geneva. The decorations were perfect and apparently lovingly collected. The bed in the main bedroom was extremely comfortable and sits on a hand carved bedstead. The kitchen had plenty of room and well equipped for almost any food preparation. We called about a couple of items before we arrived and answers came promptly and completely. There is no central air and the window air conditioners in the main bedroom and living area kept us nice and cool even though the outside temps were hovering around 95 degrees. We will definitely return to this 5-star cottage!!!

A wonderful spot for our long weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great spot for our get-away long weekend. The furnishings were charming, the main bedroom bed VERY comfortable and the house was immaculate. Hot water in great shower, plenty of big, fluffy towels. Even in the 95 degree weather, the two window air conditioners in the bedroom and living room along with the fans in each room kept us cool and comfy. We had a few questions and they were answered quickly and thoroughly. Location was only 15 minutes or so from downtown Lake Geneva, very handy for shopping! Thank you both for your kind care for us. We will definitely come back again.

A great house for our family

  • 4 of 5

We came for a family reunion and this little house fit us perfectly. The house is decorated so cute for a cottage, the chairs were all comfy, the kitchen had everything we needed and the hosts were helpful. We didn't get the chance to use all the amenities like the games, dvd's, barbecue, or even the tv but were glad they were there. We loved that there were plenty of towels and the bedding and beds were comfy. They even had a pack n' play for our little one.

Just a few small cons: It was still kind of hot even with the fans and air conditioner and some bugs were hard to keep out. (but this is Wisconsin on the 4th of July after all) :)

We loved seeing the fire flies and even saw fireworks from our window. The neighborhood was quiet and safe and close to Lake Geneva where we were visiting. Thanks for a great stay!
