I recently purchased this property from a family that owned it since the l940's. Little has changed. Think Leopold-Thoreou. 2 acres- 300 feet of lake frontage on a very clean lake. Very private. Nature provides the surround sound and your shower.


The cottage is only two hours north of Madison and yet it feels like you are way up north. The lake is very clear and clean with great swimming and fishing. Electricity has been updated and new appliances added. There are skylights in the main room.

This great place however is not for everyone. It is very primitive. The cabin is unfinished and the bathroom is an outhouse. There is no shower. Please bring your own towels and sheets (full size beds). Bring your own drinking water. There is non-potable water from a pump by the cabin that can be used for cleaning, not drinking. Drinking water is available at Lake Helen County Park by Morning Wood Bar & Grill. Leave the cabin as you found it; we do not live nearby and are not around to clean up after every guest.

Accesso ospiti

Guests will have access to the entire cottage. The cottage itself is 399 square feet. The lake is very safe and shallow and my son loves it.

Interazione con gli ospiti

I will not be around so there will be no interaction for now. My neighbors enjoy quiet and miss very little.

If you want to party and be loud this is not the spot for you. Absolutely no smoking in cabin or pets on beds. No big campfires since I have to split all that wood. Common sense is needed.

Great cabin in a great location. It's pretty rustic, so know what you're in for, but if that's what you want, it's charming. There are a few nice modern amenities in the kitchen (I was able to cook pretty much like I do at home), and I should especially mention the fantastic patching/insulation job--it was pretty windy the week I was up there, and I didn't feel a single draft anywhere inside! Richard gave me all the information I needed and gave prompt answers to my dumb questions--a great host.

For people who enjoy the outdoors and camping and are OK with some primitive conditions as far as the bathrooms it is really perfect!! Cozy and charming and ideal to get away from the hustle and bustle of life

We love staying here! This was our second visit and we loved the improvements that were made in the interim. We fished, boated, relaxed by the lake, watched movies, cooked, napped and generally enjoyed our time.

Everything was beautiful! The view was beautiful, it was a great way to get away from the world. Loved it!

Great spot. Outhouse was pretty gross, but hey - that's part of that "rustic charm". Lake was sandy, shallow and warm. Neighbors are friendly. Nice value. Cute cabin!

Richard's cottage is on a nice spot on Lake Helen because the neighbors are not that close. It is a nice lake to canoe on but not between 10am and 4pm when the jet skis and powerboats take over which, for us, was quite annoying. I also did not find it a good swimming lake. If you love to swim do check out superb Sunset Lake in the vicinity. At present there is no kayak paddle. There is a Weber grill on the property and plenty of charcoal and lighter fluid in the shed.
