About the property

Beautiful 3 bedroom 2 bath home on Elm Island bay off of the Fox River in Waterford, WI. This home has all of the charm of an up-north cabin, but is fully updated and just a short 30 minute drive from Milwaukee and less than an hour from Chicago's northern suburbs. Single story home with little to no stairs required to get to the water less than twenty steps from the back door. Wood burning stove and tongue and groove pine finishes give you that up north feel, but all of the updates will make you feel right at home. Laundry on the living level and two full bathrooms offer convenience and comfort. Sleeping arrangements for 11 if needed: Master bedroom features a queen size memory foam bed, 2nd bedroom facing the water has a bunk bed with full size mattress on the bottom and a twin on the top, 3rd bedroom has a bunk bed with full size mattress on the bottom and a twin on the top, living room couch pulls out into a queen size sleeper sofa, and love seat folds down into a single bed. Kitchen table seating for six or seven people, with additional stools and eating area at the island. All kitchen appliances are less than 4 years old, including refrigerator, stove, and over the range microwave. Bring your fishing poles and swim trunks - the Fox River and Lake Tichigan are abundant with Largemouth Bass and Catfish, and provide plenty of opportunity for Bluegills, Northern Pike, Walleye, and an occasional Trout. Lake Tichigan is great for swimming or boating, and there are more than one restaurants accessible by boat and provide docking. Bring your own boat and keep it on the private pier or take advantage of the complimentary paddle boat that is already in the water waiting for you. Pontoon rentals are available at the marina (River City Marina-Waterford) less than one mile down the river by boat or automobile. Elm Island bay is a shallow low-traffic bay off of the Fox River and is home to swans and abundant wildlife. Fishermen frequent the bay in search of Largemouth Bass, Bluegills, and Catfish, all of which can be caught right from the pier. Swimming in Elm Island Bay (off the pier) is not desirable due to shallow water, lillypads, weeds and mucky bottom. In the evening you can have a fire in the back yard or in the house, but the furnace will keep you warm if desired or central air is there to cool you down. Upgraded to 15mbps Wi-Fi (December 2015) and 46" LED TV will keep you entertained if the fishing and lake cannot. Time Warner HD cable with approximately 20 channels available and also HD upconvert DVD player. Please come relax and enjoy all that the beautiful Fox River and Lake Tichigan have to offer year-round.

Everything at this place was excellent. Spacious, clean and on a nice location. I would recommend this place to anyone. The owner even went out of his way to return a forgotten item.

Nice house, enjoyed our stay.

  • 4 of 5

Had no issues, nice house in a nice area. We could have used a clean dish scrubber, but that is my only complaint. Would definitely stay here again.

Christmas on Elm Island !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Grant's Elm Island property. My family all wanted to come for Christmas to our home near Milwaukee, but we did not have the space to accommodate everyone. So we found this property on VRBO and it was everything we could have hoped for and more. When we arrived at the house the day before my family arrived it was clean and in wonderful condition. They even left us a complimentary bottle of wine! We had 3 small children and 5 adults that stayed the entire week and there was more than enough space. We even had more family over for Christmas dinner and it was wonderful. I would recommend this property to anyone that is looking to get away to a really nice lake cabin and relax. If we ever decide to do this again I will be giving Grant a call. 5 stars for sure!

Perfect cabin getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin in Waterford was exactly what we were looking for. My wife and two of our friends stayed for a weekend on the way from Michigan to Minnesota. The cabin was very comfortable and cozy.

Check in was extremely easy. We arrived after dark and had no problems getting into the home and getting comfortable. The fireplace was ready to go, all we had to do was light it. Also, there was a nice bottle of wine on the counter waiting for us.

We cooked a few great meals there and had all of the pots, pans and utensils we needed. One thing to note is that they only have salt & pepper, so if you need more spices pick them up yourself.

The backyard was great, backing right up to a river. We had a great campfire out there and enjoyed watching the ducks!

It was really nice having 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. After a long drive it was great for everyone to have their own space. Also, having laundry was super convenient.

The location was great as well! We were less than a mile from a grocery store with everything we needed.

Overall, our experience was perfect. I couldn't have asked for anything better!
