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.
