About Louisa Enz

We are the Enz Family.(Dan, Louisa and 3 kiddos...10, 6 & 5) We also have two black labs. We lived on Lake Waubesa for 15 years & just recently moved to the Country. My husband and I are UW Alumni. Dan is from Rhinelander & I was raised in Holland, South Africa and Minnesota. We both work...Dan at UW Sports Medicine and I am a Realtor with the Stark Company. Our family loves the outdoors-water and snow skiing, outdoor walks and we love to watch and take part in lots of sporting activities Our family loves travel as well & meet new people. Our goal is to have a some vacation rentals in other parts of the Country some day.

Louisa Enz purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Louisa Enz chose Stoughton

Last year we moved to the country for more land & we are enjoying country living. We also own a small cottage on Lake Monona but at this time that has a permanent tenant. We purchased this property this Fall because its less than 10 minutes to our house and we miss the activities the lake has to offer. We hope to use the home when it isn't rented and eventually move back to the water.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with this property because of its easy access to Madison and Downtown Stoughton. Additionally the views are stunning & the property sits a gently sloped rare 75 feet of frontage AND has a boat house. We loved the feel of the "not so big house" and the ability to store some water toys and share our love of the water with others.

Perfect fit for all of us

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful setting. Very relaxing, watched guys fish all day long, there had to be hundreds of ducks in the morning. We had five adults and two young children. The owner helped us out, set us up with a pack and play.

Wonderful location by the lake!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I enjoyed the cabin very much. It was perfect for our weekend away. Everything was clean and neat. The accommodations were great. The only thing I would suggest would be a new coffee pot. The one in the cabin is too slow. It takes a half an hour to brew. As serious coffee drinkers we found that challenging.

Great location, lacks in comfort.

  • 3 of 5

Very nice home nestled on lake Kegonsa. Perfect location if you plan to visit Madison or New Glarus. We even enjoyed downtown Stoughton! Such cute shops and good dining options! The house also had a great fire pit to enjoy the outdoors.

Only negative comments would be...

Beds are not comfortable at all. My husband and I were so uncomfortable that we moved to the twin size bunk beds upstairs. Also, the location of the two separate bedrooms are back to back with very thin walls. We stayed with another couple. We were originally going to bring our babies (8m and 11m). I am so glad we did not, as there was not any space to stretch out since both babies would need to be in our bedrooms.

Also, it says 2 bathrooms but really only the upstairs shower is usable. I am 5'4 and around 130 pounds and the basement shower was even too tight for me. 1 shower for 4 people is very tricky.

As for the outdoors, the fire pit was a huge hit among the group. Only tip would be to buy a fire starter log because even though it states that there is extra firewood along the side of the house, we were unable to find any.

Lastly, the coffee maker really needs to be updated!!! It took 50 minutes to make one pot. After no sleep at night, coffee was a necessity!! Thankfully there is a great place in Stoughton to get a cup.

Overall, I would recommend the place. The location and views were worth the stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback. Noted about the coffee pot..the well water can be hard on it. Will be getting a new before the year ends. Also the bathroom in the basement is good for overflow & probably more used when you are coming in from the lake. Appreciate the feedback and will make a few changes .Hope you will come back. Louisa

Magic by the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our son was finishing his graduate work at UW Madison so we were looking for a place for our family to gather and celebrate. We were very comfortable at the cabin and delighted with the yard and views of the lake. We had a fun BBQ for my son and some of his friends and colleagues, all of whom commented the lake house and garden was the best place to celebrate! Our family time there was wonderful, one of the best reunions we've had in a while. The cabin location, in terms of going to and from Madison was far easier then we had expected, which was a real bonus as we went back and forth everyday. The owner is very responsive and even offered to send an item I left behind, accidentally, to my home. Highly recommend!

Enjoyable Girl's Weekend retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a peaceful Girl's Weekend retreat Aug 10-14. There were 9 of us that graduated from college together and we get together once a year for cherished time together. The cabin was clean and very cute. Plenty of room for us. They have a nicely stocked kitchen which is important for us since we enjoy staying in and enjoying our friends' excellent cooking! The weather cooperated so we were able to enjoy time on the patio and the dock. We ventured in to Madison on Saturday for the very nice Farmer's Market. We would recommend the Colladay Cabin!!
