About Phil

Thanks for checking out our vacation rental home. We are from Chicago but love escaping the city in between rentals to enjoy our cottage throughout the year. My family has shared many memories in this home on the lake and I hope our guests enjoy it just the same and make their own memories.

Phil purchased this house in 1995

Perfect lake house!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The beach is perfect for little kids, mine are 5 & 3 and they swam for hours. The deck looking at the lake was great to hang out on with the breeze. The owner is very accommodating and can be reached easily. We'll be back!

Exactly what we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Great area. The lake has some quirky rules so make sure you look into them prior to boating/fishing. The home is nice. Location is great. Very cabin/cottage like, but you still have wifi and tv! We will be back again!

Wonderful time with children and grandchildren

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group, 5 adults and 4 children aged 6-10. The location across a quiet street from a small public beach was ideal because the children could swim anytime as long as one of the adults was on the beach with them. The deck overlooked the beach and we could see if the attending adult needed relief or just watch them play. One rainy day they used the basement Foosball and air hockey which was a great comfort to the adults upstairs. The house was carefully equipped with everything we could possibly need. Our daughters commented that it was like we were staying in someone's house and they just were not home. The only negative thing I can relate is that the stairs to the second level are very precarious. No one with a disability of handicap should attempt to use them. It would add greatly to the safety of the house if they could be rebuilt. All in all a great week.

Great house, fully furnished and equipped to keep a family entertained for few days

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great, quiet location with the beach front. The house was equipped with games, dvds, fuss-ball table, air hockey table, beach chairs, row boat and all the essentials of a real home. There were 4 adults and 6 children and our party, and there was still more room to sleep and live in.

We spend there wonderful four days. Close to Lake Geneva and Racine. I recommend this vacation property wholeheartedly.

A wonderful experience for a girl and her dog April 22-25th 2016

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful surprise! This was by far one of the better decisions I made to take a trip with my dog. I can definitely see that this lake house is perfect for anybody.

I usually plan my trips to go to Lake Michigan. But for some reason this enticing place kept calling my name at Bohners Lake in Burlington Wisconsin. So, I made a very quick impromptu decision. I was so thankful that they accepted dogs, because my loyal companion of 7 years is in the late stages of kidney failure. And I wanted us to be able to enjoy some time together.

I could not be any happier with my decision. I truly believe this Lakehouse is situated in the perfect place on this beautiful lake. Directly across from the boat launch, the Little beach area with a nice park area making it so convenient.

The house is great. The big front patio area overlooking the lake is awesome. And the fact that the back door leads right out to the backyard is great. And the lower front door walks right into the basement. The house itself is perfect with the bedrooms on the top floor and the living room with extra pull out couches, dining kitchen and bathroom on the main floor that goes right out to the patio. I could see that a large party of people with one bathroom may be inconvenient, but there are so many things to do at the house and the beachfront that it is well worth it.

Because it was just my dog and I, I just cooked he, relaxed on the patio and in the backyard. We were able to walk down to the boat ramp and he was able to swim in the lake, of course on the leash. But you must stay in the boat launch area.

Even though I did not use them here is a small list of things that I saw that were available: rowboat, air hockey, ping-pong, toys, barbecue, horseshoes, Life vests, beach chairs, out door chairs and tables and so much more. I can imagine coming back with a bunch of friends. The fire pit in the back also was ready with wood.

I had only originally booked two days but I was so thankful that the third day was open, I decided to extend my stay.

Phil's communication was great even though he was out of town. The house is well-stocked with everything that you need. There are great notes and directions and the house has most everything and more that you would need.

The neighbors are very very nice. The sunrises in the morning and the sunsets in the evening where breathtaking. The moon off the lake was just lovely.

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful place :)

Beautiful Home & Views

  • 5 of 5

This home is so beautiful and cozy!!! I loved everything about it. As soon as we arrived we felt at home. The home accommodated our party of 9 people and with still some room to spare. My favorite place of the house was the living room and dining room! It has big windows that over look the lake, it was just beautiful! We spent 3 amazing days there and we are definitely going back!!!
