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.
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.
The family consists of me (Richard), my wife Kiki, and our son Boone. We are an easy going, relaxed family. My wife is a native of Thailand and I am an ex-Peace Corps volunteer (Honduras). We speak Thai, Spanish, and English.
