About Mike VanderBunt

I enjoy doing fishing guiding and boat tours on Geneva Lake. I have been getting into kayak fishing the past couple years. I also mountain bike the Kettle Moraine Trails.

Mike VanderBunt purchased this house in 2014

Why Mike VanderBunt chose Lake Geneva Area

My wife and I bought this property a few years ago. We tore down an old, deteriorating building and started planning for a vacation rental house. We've been in the vacation rental business for five years and love meeting people from all over coming to enjoy the Geneva Lakes area.

What makes this house unique

Our house offers great accessibility. Guests can walk anywhere including the beach, boat launch, board walk, shore path, six restaurants, shops, Yerkes Observatory, and Kishwauketoe Nature Conservancy. We are two blocks to the snowmobile trail system. We have flexible check-in and check-out times.

Perfect for our girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the house. It was well equipped and Mike was very helpful with any questions we had. He even bought a new DVD player for us. The downstairs bedrooms were a little chilly but nothing that an extra blanket couldn't take care off. Overall a great house and I would recommend to others.

Beautiful house! Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during the winter months, and this house was as cozy as can be! We definately had enough room for our large gathering with the 3 bedrooms, pull-out couch room, the living room, and the furnished basement with additional futon and couches. We had a great time relaxing in front of the fireplace, and the master bedroom whirlpool bath was amazing! Highly recommend this house and all it has to offer, and Mike was very personable and accommodating to our questions and needs. A+++ house and owner!

Wonderful Girlfriends Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful fall girlfriends weekend and enjoyed the house and surrounding Williams Bay and Lake Geneva area very much., The house's open concept kitchen, living room and dining area was conducive to us all being together and the whole house is wonderfully decorated and appointed with high-end kitchen and bathrooms. Williams Bay is charming and the shopping in Lake Geneva was an afternoon delight! We all agreed that we could not have chosen a better weekend getaway. Highly recommended!

This home is always very well kept. Comfortable with very nice features. Kitchen is fully equipped, nice size bedrooms, large bathrooms with lush towels, fireplace, large patio. Easy walk to restaurants, and walk around the lake. You can't miss when you rent this home.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our children and grandchildren spent Labor Day weekend at The Williams Bay Tourist House. Owner Mike made the check-in process very easy for us. The house was very inviting and well stocked. There was plenty of space for everyone and also great gathering space. Loved the décor which we found to be very relaxing and refreshing. The neighborhood was quiet and it was nice to be able to just walk to restaurants, park, etc. Not used to the high beach prices though - ironic that it cost us more to all go to the beach than to go out for pizza at Harpoon Willie's (very good pizza by the way). If we are in Williams Bay again, The Williams Bay Tourist House would definitely be our first choice.

Beautiful Home in Lovely Town

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Williams Bay Tourist House. The home is wonderful, well maintained and the decorations and finishings are beautiful. The pictures don't do it justice! You can tell the home has had a lot of love and care put into it. And lots of space, can comfortably sleep 4 couples, plus futon in basement for another couple or kids. We also greatly enjoyed staying in Williams Bay, several great restaurants to choose from and great beach, and SO much quieter and more relaxing than downtown Lake Geneva. Would definitely stay here again!
