Perks for the Parents

A winding wooded drive leads to this lofty lakeside home set in 3.5 acres of private woodland with its own sandy beach. Surrounded by trees and water, you’ll feel at one with nature and away from it all at this lakeside retreat. With 5 bedrooms plus a loft with 3 bunk beds and huge living spaces, there is room for everyone to get together or find a quiet spot to relax with stunning views over the water. The residence comes with 100 feet of lakefront, a dock, raft and sand lake access, as well as an outdoor fire pit, so that all the family can enjoy the great outdoors or, if the weather is inclement, curl up at home in front of a roaring fire.

Why Kids Love it

There is so much to explore! Nature is on the doorstep with a private trail in the woods and the lake offering myriad activities including swimming, kayaking, water-skiing, fishing or simply searching for turtles and frogs. Inside the cabin, kids will enjoy the toys, games and their own bunk room with a flatscreen TV and 3 bunkbeds. For babies and toddlers there’s a yard set up for playing and resting with an accompanying baby monitor and baby books, and a play camper tent inside. In the evening the older kids will enjoy sitting around the campfire telling stories, singing songs and toasting marshmallows for s’mores.

About the Location

The residence is next to Whitewater Lake, in Walworth County, Wisconsin. Whitewater Lake is a clear water lake known for fishing and boating. Located 90-minutes’ drive from Chicago, 50 minutes from Madison, 1 hour from from General Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee, it’s a perfect way to escape the city. Twenty miles of hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling trails can be found in Kettle Moraine State Forest, the entrance is a 0.5 mile walk from the property. Downtown Whitewater is 7-minutes’ drive away with its many breweries, summer festivals, and a local farm-to-table restaurant. The resort city of Lake Geneva is only 30 minutes in the car.

Style Notes

Luxurious lakeside cabin. The warm, spacious and hand-crafted home is all about the lake views with floor-to-ceiling windows making the most of it. Hand-scraped hardwood floors, wooden walls, ceilings and staircases bring the natural world indoors. The deep sofas and grand fireplaces give a touch of opulence and coziness all at the same time, while the log-hewn bunkbeds for the kids are super fun. We love the tranquil ambience, the child’s table and chairs crafted around a supporting beam and, of course, the stunning views of Whitewater Lake at every turn.
