About John Feldman

We live in DeForest, WI (suburb of Madison).

John Feldman purchased this cabin in 2004

Why John Feldman chose Lake Wisconsin

We discovered Lake Wisconsin and the Wisconsin River in 2002. We would trailer our boat to the lake and go up river where all the beautiful views, wildlife and sandbars are. When we spotted this home from the river we were taken in by the breathtaking views and great location. We love it and our families love it. It feels like a vacation every time we visit.

Family Fun on the Wisconsin River

  • 5 of 5

This home was very comfortable, well-equipped, beautifully decorated and had a marvelous view! The kitchen (with its large island), dining room (with its large table) and living rooms were very open, so we could all cook and eat and relax together easily. We had 4 adults and 4 kids and we had plenty of space. We enjoyed the river immensely, but were glad to have brought our boat to get to the island beaches for swimming. I imagine the landscape along the river changes every year and when we visited there were no beaches nearby to wade to. We also rented kayaks and loved exploring the islands and wildlife downriver. There were parts of the river that were wide/deep enough to go tubing and water skiing. We enjoyed several playgrounds and a nice beach for little kids that we could drive to. Grandpa and the kids baited hooks down at the dock in the evening and early morning and just watched the poles from the big living room window! Easy and enjoyable day trips included Devil's Lake State Park with its hiking, bouldering, swimming etc and Wisconsin Dells with its waterparks, jet boat tours, mini golf etc. The owners were friendly and helpful and I would definitely recommend this rental! Oh and there was a pack-n-play and a booster chair already there...I should not have bothered packing ours!

40 yr old family retreat

  • 5 of 5

I'm keeping this review short and sweet. The place was perfect in all aspects. Location was great and easy to get to. Size was perfect and plenty of space for our 7 adults and 3 cars. Living space was also great and allowed everyone to get comfortable and enjoy dinner together. The firepit was great even though it rained for 2 nights and didn't get full use of it. The dock was nice to fish off of. The house had all the necessities we needed to cook all of our meals. Everyone in the group had an awesome time and we would go there again. The owners are top notch and were available to answer any questions and concerns we had. Lately, don't forget to get up early to catch the hummingbirds by the living room window.

Pure Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The House: It was clean, tidy and had all the appliances you could need. Beds were clean and very comfortable. Décor flawlessly complimented the surroundings. The view from great room can't be beat. Deck outside was MADE for a morning cup of coffee. The river was absolutely beautiful, whether relaxing during the day on the dock or as a backdrop to a bonfire at night. Just a short wade across the river to an island with a beach on the other side...very cool. Great pub down the road (walking distance) for dinner/drinks.

The Owners: Their description of the house was spot on. They were friendly, helpful and very accommodating. Security deposit was returned within 10 days. It was a pleasure dealing with them.

Overall: Could not have imagined a more perfect place to relax. Thanks SO much!

Surpassed Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

All the comforts of home in this cabin in the woods on the river. Beautiful view through the wall of windows in the den. You can't help but relax in front of the cozy fireplace enjoying the view and feeling you are right out in nature at the same time. Comfortable beds, appliances (washer, dryer, dishwasher, etc.) and plenty of room for a large group. A nice open concept kitchen/dining/den so a group can spread out but all be together at the same time. Large river access yard with fire pit for roasting marshmallows and a floating dock for fishing and boating. A nice resort/bar/restaurant right up the road within walking distance. Our group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed it all and we hope to stay here again on our next Wisconsin visit.

Excellent escape!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was amazing! It was a comfortable, spacious cabin with all of the amenities. We put our boat in the water at the boat launch that was just a few skips away, spent the day on the river/lake, and came back to the cabin to grill out and sit by the campfire. And we fit fishing from the dock in every chance we got, too! We had a pretty large group, with kids, parents, and grandparents, and we ALL had a GREAT time. The only problem we had was that we had to leave...

We all had a wonderful time. We felt right at home as soon as we walked into the beautiful cottage. We had everything we needed. Gorgeous views of the river. The owners of the cottage made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Our Granddaughters had a wonderful time and we made some great memories.
