About the property

4 Br, 2 Ba Log Cabin Close To Williams Bay Beach.

Comfortable log cabin makes you feel like you are in the North woods, or even Colorado, right here in SE Wisconsin. 3 bedrooms on the main floor including 1 queen, 2 twins, and the third room with 2 sets of twin bunk beds. Also on the main floor you will find a wonderfully updated kitchen with all the tools you need to create special meals while on vacation. The main living room is spacious and welcoming with a large wood burning fireplace, large screen TV, DVD player and guest WiFi. A loft overlooks the main living room and is a great place to unwind and let the kids play or watch your favorite movie. When the day is done, retreat to the master suite on the 2nd floor, complete with a king size log frame bed and a rustic decor bathroom with tub and shower.

About Matt Scheidt

I grew up in LaCrosse, WI and did not have much experience with SE Wisconsin during my childhood. However, I met my wife at Marquette University and during medical school and residency, started a wonderful career and family, eventually settling in Peoria, IL. We found the Geneva Lake area enticing due to all the amenities available and decided to purchase a 2nd home for our young family of 5 to enjoy. We couldn't be happier and are exited to share our wonderful log home for others to enjoy as well.

Matt Scheidt purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Matt Scheidt chose Lake Geneva Area

Once you drive up and see the home for the first time, you will see why we fell in love with it! We had always wanted a log home and this was the perfect mix of privacy at night mixed with innumerable activities to do during the days for our young family.

What makes this cabin unique

This unique log home has detail not seen in many others including a massive "log" fireplace, outdoor fire pit for roasting marshmallows, and an amazingly relaxing front porch with swing and 2 rocking chairs. Walking distance to downtown Williams Bay allows our family to enjoy the beach, fishing piers, restaurants, and of course, the Thirsty Moose for a late afternoon ice cream cone.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property as we had our kids and grandkids come to stay with us for our family reunion. The space was great for us and the kids.

The littles enjoyed the toys available and wanted to enjoy the videos and games, but were dismayed that we said no. :) They especially loved the "secret passageway" leading from the front entryway to the bedrooms.

The kitchen was large enough to have a multiple people in the area while cooking. We had all the pots, pans and kitchen trinkets that we needed. Loved, loved, loved the full set of Tupperware so we could cook and have leftovers the next day.

The fire pit was put to good use most evenings, and it was very relaxing. Watch out for the mosquitos, but that's usually the case this time of year, and a bit of bug spray took care of the issue.

The neighborhood is quiet, and was the perfect for walking our dog in the morning and evening. Getting up early for a long walk had the added benefit of enjoying the turkeys and deer including several fawns. There were times when walking wasn't evening necessary to enjoy the wildlife as it walked right into the back yard.

The house was everything that we needed for this trip. We could not have asked for anything better.

Great log cabin home

  • 5 of 5

The log cabin was beautiful and had everything we needed. There were even toys and games for kids that our grandson was excited about. There was plenty of space for us and we were so lucky to be able to get this on such short notice. Thank you to Matt and Amy and VRBO

Lovely Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, nestled in the woods of beautiful Williams Bay. Meticulously cared for, this home has everything you need for a perfect family vacation (or a getaway with friends.) Plenty of space and most all modern appliances and appointments. Steps away from the town of Williams Bay and very close to the lake path around Lake Geneva, it is truly a gem. Look out for the deer and other special animals grazing through your back yard each morning and evening....these creatures are gorgeous and provide the perfect icing on the cake to a wonderful experience.

Great balance of quiet and great lake experience

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with a family of 7 (5 adults and 2 children) and had an awesome time. This cabin in particular is great for kids, as it had many toys for toddlers and large enough place to play hide and seek. It is remote yet very close to the lake to enjoy all the entertainment around both on the lake and the resturants and shops around it. The whole house is well organized and make you feel like your deep in the woods in a hunting lodge. All the entertainment is 5-15 min drive either distance to each of the major towns. We all enjoyed spending time inside and outside this beautiful home. Highly recommend using this, especially with young kids.

Perfact setting for family reunion

  • 4 of 5

This Williams Bay, WI house was perfect for our gathering of 3 generations. The house is large, well stocked with amenities, clean, and has so much character. The house had something for everyone: a relaxing porch swing, a backyard fire pit, indoor and outdoor toys and games for all ages. The kids especially loved the "secret passageway." The location is within walking distance to Geneva Lake, which has a public path around its shore. We also enjoyed the nearby beach, ice cream at Frosty Moose, lunch at Daddy Maxwells, and a history and architectural visit at Yerkes Observatory. Our hosts Matt and Amy responded quickly to inquiries before and during the visit. Thanks for a relaxing setting where precious memories were made!
