About Property Manager/Owner
How The Simple Cottage Began (It wasn't so simple). What do you do at your 50th birthday party? Tear down cupboards and pull up flooring in your 1928 bungalow, of tcourse! That is where it all began...Room by room, day by day, and dollar by dollar, my little dream took form.Little did I know that it was the beginning of The Simple Cottage. My sweet little bungalow only needed a little TLC-pulling up carpet, a brand new kitchen, paint, paint and more paint. Add in some light fixtures, faucets (did I mention paint?!) and here we are!

Beautiful, cozy cottage!
Wow, what a perfect experience! From the moment you walk in, you can tell Sherry wants you to feel relaxed and at home. She had all the lights on for us. Everything was SO clean. The beds are very comfy! The kitchen is full of everything you need down to bottled waters and chocolates :). I stayed with 4 girlfriends for two nights. We said we would all love to come back. The basement is set up perfectly for crafting. The town of New Germany is so cute. We took a little stroll one morning. The cottage sits across the street form a quant church, and I enjoyed sitting on the porch Sunday morning and listening to the church bells. Thank you Sherry for your dedication to the details and for opening your home for us to make lifetime memories! - Rachel
Absolutely the cutest, best appointed home we've ever rented.
I cannot not say enough fabulous things about The Simple Cottage. I'm afraid I won't be able to do it justice. My girlfriends and I have been renting a house, twice a year, for the past 9 years all over MN and WI, and The Simple Cottage was hands-down our favorite house of all time. It is beautiful, adorably decorated and spotlessly clean. And if that wasn't enough, Sherrie has seen to every possible detail so that our stay was spectacular. She provided everything we could ever want from coffees, teas, spices, bottled water, 3 kinds of sugar (regular, lemon and cinnamon), comfy beds, extra blankets (ones to use while enjoying the fire pit and ones for indoors), selfie-sticks, disposable plates and napkins, a plethora of hooks for wet towels, plenty of comfy seating, fans in the bedrooms, etc. The list goes on with all of the things that she provides in case you forgot something like eyeglass "cheaters," lens wipes, tooth brushes, Q-tips, shampoo, body wash and so on. There was not one short-cut taken, Sherrie painstakingly has thought of everything and has made sure her guests want for nothing. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage with us, we all had a great time!
Thank you! You ladies were wonderful to host! Very neat and tidy, the perfect guests! Come again!!
Our family LOVED The Simple Cottage! Sherry is the consummate hostess.
Our family of 7 adults and 8 children (1 to 6 years old)) absolutely loved this home. One 5-year old exclaimed as we walked in, "I lOVE this house!" And as we left, the 6-year old said she wanted to live there. The home was cozy; decorated in what we called the "Chip and Joanna Gaines" style. Sherry went over and above to make us feel welcome, and to accommodate the little ones. In two of the upstairs bedrooms, there are large walk-in closets, one which accommodated a queen-size mattress, and the other a twin mattress. These extra sleeping spaces allowed the children to sleep cozily and comfortably. Sherry added a twin bed in the lower level as a perfect place for grandma to sleep. All of the thoughtful little things that Sherry added to her home to make us comfortable were delightful (extra supplies, giving us permission to move tables and chairs, leaving a Christmas message for us on the chalk board - along with colored chalk for the children to draw their own messages, etc).
The kitchen was large enough for several adults to be working at the same time without getting in each other's way. I would recommend this rental home in a heartbeat! Thank you, Sherry.
Thank you for the kind words Judy and family,
Best compliments are from children!!! If they loved it and created wonderful memories then my job is done! You were wonderful to work with as well, Happy New Year!
Amazing Cottage - Amazing Time!
We had a wonderful girl's night at the Simple Cottage to celebrate a 40th birthday. The cottage is simply amazing! Sherry's attention to every detail did not go unnoticed. Each room is adorable and the way she labeled everything for her guests, including: towels, blankets, paper plates, coffee, tea, bottled water -- it made us feel truly at home. We were able to do a day trip to the nearby wineries and then we came back to prepare a group dinner in her beautiful kitchen. She had everything we needed - including the use of her propane grill. After dinner we enjoyed a bonfire in her back yard oasis. She had the fire wood already on the bonfire for us! Her cottage is an amazing place for a weekend get-away. We'll be back soon!
Thank you ladies!♥️
Truly a home away from home!
I gathered a group of some of my favorite gals for a scrapbooking weekend at The Simple Cottage. When I pulled up I felt right at home with the lights twinkling through the windows. Sherry has done an amazing job with each and every room of this house. Her attention to detail makes it the perfect place to host a gathering of any type - large or small. Everything you needed is right at your fingertips and the complimentary coffee, tea, water and popcorn were a nice touch. I loved the live plants. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and nice gathering spaces to come together. The beds were super comfortable in the adorable bedrooms. We will be back again in the fall to spend more quality girl time at The Simple Cottage. Check it out! You will love it too!!
