Why Kathy and Greg chose Wild Rose

After months of looking we found a place that met with our primary we see our self wanting to be here? All you have to do is look at begs you to come in, sit back and enjoy.

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefit of this house is the design, how often can you say you stayed in a round house? Then to have it on a lake with a million dollar view, what more could you ask for.

That '70's Mushroom House - A Unique Retro Lakefront Home
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews
Oshsh, WI

Absolutely everything we wanted and more!!!

  • 5 of 5

Most unique home we’ve ever had the pleasure to stay in! The owners are exceptional, paying attention to every detail, especially the retro ones!!!! My son counted 50 mushrooms located throughout :). Lake was amazing for swimming and fishing! We used the kayaks and pedal boat, which were great! Corn-hole game was a hit! Air conditioning was perfect for our scorching weekend! We managed to have a fire long enough to make pudgy pies and s’mores before the heat and mosquitoes sent us back inside to watch endless episodes of Starsky and Hutch, The Partridge Family, Smokey and the Bandit and American Graffiti. We enjoyed many of the board games, the amazing view and the overall retro atmosphere!!
