About the property

The Dake Lake Escape is relaxation, tranquility, convenience. This is what you expect in a lake vacation. The four season enclosed porch has wonderful views of Dake Lake, a no-wake lake. The four bedrooms will house your family and friends peacefully. The convenient kitchen has ample storage and ease. The large dining room will comfortably seat everyone. The warm living room will encourage you to finish those books you can never get around to reading.

The lower level game room will wow you.......a full size pool table, a foosball table, flat screen TV, a wall of board games and a unique cribbage board.

The property does not have a traditional beach....however a sand bottom runs out past the 40 foot dock. This is an unusual feature for the Chain of Lakes.

For summer reservations: our week runs Saturday to Saturday. See the notes in the Rates section.

About Tom

The owners first purchased this home as a family retreat. They loved the Chain O" Lakes area so much they subsequently sold their Appleton home and bought a permanent residence in the area.

So this home is now a VRBO property to be shared with the rest of the world.

Tom purchased this house in 2012

Why Tom chose Waupaca

This property is in a great location. It has terrific lake views, is close to dining and entertainment yet has privacy. Dake Lake is no wake providing for tranquil days and nights.

What makes this house unique

When you say "LAKE FRONT"'ve said it all!

Swim or fish right off the dock. There is a sand bottom from the shore well past the end of the dock.

Dake Lake Cottage Rental, Waupaca, WI

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cottage and great location on Dake Lake! My wife and I enjoyed our week stay with family and friends. Very few cottages rentals on the Chain of Lakes in Waupaca have this much room as well as 3 bathrooms. Its a fantastic set up and we look forward to renting here again. We would highly recommend it!!

Dake lake escape June 10 thru the 17th, 2017

  • 3 of 5

Dock area was enjoyed by all. Kids enjoyed the water with the neighbors 2nd house over. House and garage area was nice. However, we found no garbage bags to use, there were no wash cloths, only one hand towel for each bathroom and no detergent for the dishwasher. Didn't care for the way the stools were, they didn't flush well at all. We enjoyed the time we had together except for the 2 days we had no power. That was not good at all. The lake was, however, beautiful. Driveway parking was ample for all vehicles that showed up. Neighbors next door tried to help us out with candles when we were without power.

Owner's Response: The power was outage was due to a severe storm in the area. We tried to accommodate by offering to a hotel room. Thanks for the other suggestions. Tom

Fantastic week in a good location

  • 4 of 5

Our family (four adults and four teeneagers) really enjoyed our week at this cottage. The pool table and big rec room were perfect for teenagers and family to hang out together in the evenings. And the location was ideal for tubing/skiing in long lake, or having a quiet kayak paddle in Dake or Miner lakes. All of us appreciated the big screened in porch as well. We would rent this cottage again!
