About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, 4 Sleeps

A serene waterfront cottage on the bay is positioned overlooking miles of protected land across the waterway. It possesses all the amenities one could wish for to provide a peaceful and comfortable getaway. View the brilliant changing colors of the seasons, vast wildlife, magical sunsets, and experience the diverse cultural events nearby which are plentiful. It's located close to the top ranking Beloit College Campus, city center, and recognized as a supper club destination area.

The space:

A waterfront freshly decorated two bedroom cottage rests on the bay of Rock River's Beloit Township. Glorious sunsets are show-cased and fully viewed from the large deck pier, screened porch, sunroom, kitchen, living dining room, bath, and bedroom all overlooking a bay.

We have Eagles, Blue Herons, Cranes, Egrets, Swans, Pelicans, Mallards, Canadian Geese that all seasonly visit our Bay Area. Painted turtles sun on the logs in bay and large frogs frolic along the top of the water.

Activities on the Rock engage canoeing, fishing, bird watching, hiking, boating, grilling, ice skating, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and much more.

This professionally decorated, fully furnished two bedroom home consists of 1 1/2 baths and laundry room, three seasoned sunroom, and large screened in porch. It's a very comfortable home situated on a serene setting on the waterfront overlooking the bay. A fully equipped kitchen and laundry room with washer/dryer are provided. Our home has gas heat with central air. In addition, our cabin-like three season room provides a wonderful up north feel! Off street parking is included.

Guest access:

Guests will have private access to the entire home. Firewood is next to the fire pit to enjoy with the needed safety precautions. A canoe and pier are available for guest use at one's own risk. A nearby boat launch is free for pubic use at Preservation Park. Swimming is done at one's own risk. A well-trained, groomed family dog may be considered if pre-approved. Check-in is 4 pm and check-out is 11 am unless pre-arranged.

Interaction with guests:

The neighborhood:

Our cottage is situated on a bay carved out from the river and overlooks miles of protected land across the waterway. It possesses all the amenities one could wish for to provide a peaceful and comfortable getaway. With the cottage situated roughly 5 miles north of the intimate yet entertaining downtown Beloit, where our main street is ranked in Wisconsin's top 10, you may have great access to many options this area has to offer. One morning you may venture into town to walk the Beloit College campus, wander into several of the boutique storefronts, and end at a family run café. With Beloit known as a supper club destination, there are also many dinner options. You may also chose to take advantage of the large screened-in back porch while soaking in the vibrant sunsets right in your own cottage vacation home. The visit will allow you to feel recharged and grateful for the remarkable stay enjoyed.

While certainly benefitting from its proximity to Chicago (90 miles), Madison (50) and Milwaukee (70), the city boasts its own array of distinguishing features. Whether visiting the Beloit College (and one of its two museums) or coming to town for the Farmer's Market, Beloit International Film Festival, or wanting to enjoy recreational activities on the mighty Rock, or participate many other local attractions, you are sure to have a pleasurable time!

We are fortunate to have a vacation home in a quiet, rural, secure area. It is a smoke free environment that is well maintained and designed for your comfort. Our respectful guests have a high standard of expectations and responsibly leave the home in a clean orderly condition.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very comfy, and the view across the river was beautiful. Tina's apple bread was very delicious, and it served as breakfast for several days. We truly enjoyed our stop here as we're attempting to visit all 50 of our wonderful states...we visited 5 on this trip, which leaves us with 9 more to visit. We would definitely considering staying at this location again!

Restful Stay on the Rock River

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Tina's in September for a mom and daughters weekend. There was plenty of room for the four of us. We had a wienie roast in the fire pit and use the grill for steaks. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals. The house was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The one drawback was that the cove was over grown with weeds. We were hoping to fish from the dock. The view of the river past the weeds was awesome. We had fun watching the boats and birds. We all enjoyed our stay! Thank you, Tina!

Relaxing Time with Family at the Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Tina and Curt,

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful cottage. We felt welcomed at arrival with your gift of zucchini bread, orange juice, and coffee. Your cottage is a cosy refuge with many amenities. We enjoyed spending time on the deck and taking walks through the neighborhood and would end our days in the screened patio at the round table catching up with each other. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing time for a family visit.

The best to both of you,

Paul and Beckee

Very peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean and well stocked. Curt and Tina welcomed us with banana bread and orange juice. They sent a lot of helpful info before our arrival. It was like staying with family ( that we never met-actually). I would totally recommend staying here.
