Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Wild Rose - Wild Rose Cottage

2 bedroom, 1 full bath, cottage & boathouse w/ cabana on full recreational lake.

Wild Rose Cottage on Big Hills Lake offers old world charm, modern day conveniences, wonderful views, and a private sandy beach. Enjoy a peaceful lakefront getaway with traditional up-North ambiance.

Big Hills lake is 133 acres of crystal clear water for full recreation activity. It has no-wake hours in the morning and evening for quiet fishing. The private beach has 87 feet of firm, sandy frontage which slopes gradually into the spring fed lake for great swimming.

The cottage is light and airy with plenty of windows to bring the outside-in for cross breezes and sounds of the North woods. The original cottage, built in 1926, has been modernized and blends into the great room, built in the 1950s. An open floor plan connects the rooms by doorways, without the traditional hallway. The result is an intimate transition between rooms.

The Great Room features: a grand fire place, gable ceiling, pine-board floors and knotty-pine walls. It is the natural focal point for activity in the cottage. Amenities include; a television with HDTV channels delivered by antenna, a DVD player, and Wifi internet connections. Family friendly DVD's, books, board games and puzzles are available too.

The bright galley kitchen has modern cabinetry, full size refrigerator, electric range and oven, traditional and Keurig coffee makers, a microwave, toaster, and new cookware. A gas grill is located off the kitchen.

The bathroom is updated with a pedestal sink, tub and shower. A unique Old World feature is the bathrooms' side door for direct access from outside.

Bedrooms in the cottage are spacious. The Window bedroom, with its eight windows, has a double size bed. The Wood bedroom, with its knotty pine walls, vaulted ceiling and wood floor, has two single beds. There is a full size sleeper sofa in the Great Room. The cabana has a futon, which folds out to a full size bed for those needing extra room.

The dining area, located near the deck, features seating for four, and a serving buffet.

The deck has plenty of room for family gatherings. It has two sets of four place patio tables, a shade umbrella, and additional bench seating.

A campfire ring is located near the deck. Outdoor seating and complimentary firewood is provided.

The rock and mortar pathway to the boathouse and beach is a unique, and charismatic feature. Built approximately 50 years ago, stones left behind from the glaciers 10,000 years earlier were used in its construction.

The boathouse features two distinct activity areas. On top is the cabana featuring large screened windows, sun shades, a coffee table, and comfortable seating. A space heater is available for cool evenings, along with a small refrigerator to keep beverages cold and handy during hot afternoons. It's the perfect location for kids to hang out during the day, and a great evening retreat for adults. Located beneath the cabana is additional shady seating, and a place to store beach toys.

Guests have complimentary access to the Old Town brand canoe, 2 Pelican brand Summit 100X kayaks, and a 4 person paddle boat. Life jackets are available for sizes 30 lbs. to adult.

The property is about 1 acre in size, offering views of the lake framed by trees. On the back of the property is a glacial kettle (a large depression in the land formed by glaciers) which provides a natural separation from the road. An additional 20 acres of forested land behind the property provides even more privacy.

Bass, Walleye, Northern, and Pan fish are common and offer anglers plenty of action. Fly fisherman will enjoy the nearby Willow Creek and Pine River fisheries, with their Class 1 trout streams and more than 2,000 acres of public land access. Willow Creek is only 5 minutes away.

Here’s a sampling of the many activities in the area:

• The Wisconsin DNR Fish Hatchery in Wild Rose

• Horseback Riding at Luwisomo Riding Stable in Wild Rose

• Crystal River Canoe Trips in Waupaca

• Mountain Biking and Wake Park at Nordic Mountain in Mt. Morris

• Clear Water Harbor in Waupaca (home of the Chief Waupaca Sternwheeler)

• Waupaca Chain Skiers – Ski Show in Waupaca

• The EAA AirVenture Museum and Whittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.

A Cottage Guide Book is provided for additional information about the area, and instructions for “where, what, when, and how” at the cabin.

Special Note: We invite you to enjoy the cottage with respect for the property, and the peace and privacy of our neighbors. The cottage offers a great opportunity to reconnect with family and recharge. The property address is W5547 Hillcrest Blvd., Wild Rose, WI 54984.

About Stephen Beaver

We live in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, just an hour and 45 minutes away.

Stephen Beaver purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Stephen Beaver chose Central Wisconsin

Our family has been vacationing in the Wild Rose area for many years. Visiting Wild Rose is like going way up North, with plenty of forest woodlands, lakes, and streams; and its still pretty close to home. We finally decided to find our own place, and after looking at many alternatives, we found our cottage on Big Hills Lake -- a peaceful and beautiful location, with a well maintained cottage, where we could spend quality time away from home.

What makes this cottage unique

The floor plan reflects the heritage of the property. The original 100 year old cabin integrates with a great room built in the 1950's. The result is a quaint and very comfortable cottage for everyone. An activity area exists for each member of the family, and their interests. Solitude can be found in the charming and peaceful cottage, while plenty of fun in the sun is available around the boathouse. The ambiance of the lake, and its crystal clear waters, make it a wonderful place to vacation. There are complimentary boats in the boathouse, and various beach toys for children to enjoy on the lake. There are also plenty of nearby activities to keep explorers and sports enthusiasts engaged.

Peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

The lake was beautiful! Very clear with a sandy bottom. Enjoyed having options of kayaks, paddle boat, and floats/noodles. Also all the necessay equipment like life vests. Stone steps were a bit steep, but we were warned about the climb. Cottage was very open and comfortable. I greatly appreciated the new central air conditioner especially since I have a health condition that is worse in hot weather. The cottage had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Having wifi was a great bonus. We brought our Apple TV box to watch movies at night. My son was able to take his final online exam for his college class. If it wasn't available, he would have had to stay home. Also appreciated the history and background about the cottage and surrounding area. Ice cream at the mini golf course was a special treat! Thanks for a great week!

Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage from the moment we unlocked the door into the kitchen, then onto the two bedrooms and the great room. I had grown up on Hills Lake and wanted to return to row on the lake. I wanted an original style cottage... the Rose Cottage! EVERYTHING is included except food, your clothes and bathroom and beach towels. The kitchen is appointed with new dishes, glasses and cookware. The cottage felt so much like home! We will be back in the future!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage and the amenities will not disappoint! If you are looking for a clean, well-appointed place to stay on the lake we can tell you we would highly recommend this cottage. The deck off of the great room was perfect for morning coffee, bird watching, lunch with family and fantastic views of the lake. The steps up and down to the water gave us a bit of a cardio workout, but that was OK as the destinations were filled with fun. The boat house has everything a family could want for lake adventure; including kayaks, paddle boat, fishing poles, sand toys, life jackets, blow ups, chairs, umbrellas, tables, radio, yes this cottage will have all you need, the Beaver family have thought of everything!

The air conditioning kept the entire cottage cool and was very quiet, sitting in the great room reading was comfortable and peaceful. The water was hot right when you needed it to be and the kitchen, although small, was equipped with many items one would have in their own home, making food prep and clean up a breeze.

Our communications with VRBO were personal and timely, Stephen kept us up to date at all times. Very professional, thank you for a wonderful experience all around!

Charming cottage, lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is charming: bright, neat, and very clean, with all the supplies you'll need. The setting is very lovely, with a private swimming area, loaner kayaks, and a beautiful view of the lake from the terrace. Steve and Peggy were terrific hosts, always quick to respond to questions and eager to help. We had a terrific week and are hoping to come back next year!
