Large welcoming charming space with a fantastic lake view!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I like to get together for an annual gathering and try different places every year. This is one property we'd definitely consider renting again. The living room / kitchen / dining room area is large and very comfortable while providing easy access to the lovely screened in porch. The pool table was a big hit, also we picked up a load of wood from one of the locals and had ourselves a lovely fire out back. I would highly recommend this property to any considering staying in Montello.

Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a nice long weekend with 6 of my wonderful family members and we had an absolutely amazing time. The cabin itself is perfection - it's the absolute best combination of cozy and spacious with truly delightful decor. The screened in porch was one of our favorite rooms - my mom enjoyed playing the piano and we all enjoyed some r&r while watching the sunset in a bug-free zone. My family are avid fishermen and we thoroughly enjoyed the lake and all it had to offer. Yes, there are weeds; and yes, the weeds make boat navigation and fishing a little challenging, but that was half the fun. We caught plenty of fish of all varieties and my brothers had a hilariously fun time trying to find weed free channels throughout the lake. Honestly, though, we caught some of the best fish right off the pier in front of the cabin - in fact, we spotted many fishermen fairly close to our pier throughout the day - clearly it's the spot to be. My family and I highly recommend this little piece of cabin heaven. From the fire pit, to the pool table, to the comfy beds, the hottub, the private pier, the hammock (the list speaks for itselt...), the cabin offered a little something for everyone and we had all kinds of fun. Also, communication with Dorothy was friendly and timely and she was very accommodating with various requests - we will without a doubt be back!

very peaceful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We are four retired couples who do a yearly trip. Tatanka Lodge was very well suited for us. Enjoyed the peace and quiet . Did several day trips to surrounding communities. Our fishermen were able to catch enough to satisfy their itch. Enjoyed evenings around fire pit. Charlotes cafe pizza is a must for anyone visiting area. The O'Sullivans have a wonderful property and can see why they are planning to retire there when the time comes.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time on our extended weekend. The house is beautiful and very clean. We found out we are not good fishermen because we only caught on 15" walleye that was worth keeping. Lots of little pan fish so the grandkids had a great time. The hammock was a definately hit. I definately recommend The Tatonka Lodge.

Such a relaxing vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time here! The weather was gorgeous and the home was so relaxing. Enjoyed sitting outside by the fire and the hot tub was a nice bonus after a long day of hiking near the Dells. Loved the screened in porch--it really eliminated any mosquitoes or bugs so it was bearable to sit outside. The only thing we were disappointed in, was that the lake was completely full of weeds. Barely even saw a boat in the water, there is literally a path of weeds cut out of the lake so boats can get through. However, this has nothing to do with the home itself, which was nothing short of amazing. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We would love to stay here again!

Great room sizes and rustic feel!

  • 4 of 5

It was great to have our whole family under one roof in this very spacious home! The basement was a huge hit with the kids and gamers and the screened in porch was ideal!

It would've been nice to know ahead of time that this is NOT a swimming lake. We were disappointed in that!

Communication was amazing and I really appreciated Dorothy always replying to all my questions promptly!

One final suggestion would be the upkeep of the outdoors. It really is in need of a clean up and gardening maintenance.

Overall we were happy with our stay!
