About the property

WOW! Casablanca has the greatest guest list this summer!! Please let me know if you want to be put on a waiting/cancellation list ... You never know when a cancellation may come up!

Just had a cancellation for last weekend of June!!

Welcome to CASABLANCA!! Located in a quiet little neighborhood, away from the city's hustle and bustle. Casablanca is our home away from home.

Right away when you walk in the front door of Casablanca, you can see the beautiful Lake Poygan through the wall of windows just beyond the living room. In the kitchen, your views of the lake only get better, with a breakfast nook & lounge (aka the circle of love) area in the bay windows. There is a large kitchen table, which can easily seat 8. In the family room, your views of the lake are right in front of you, and in the evening after you have played on the lake all day, you will have a 48" TV w/dish network to watch as you sit back and relax. There is a convenient half-bath just around the corner from the family room. We also have a whole-house sound system, using CD's or an aux cord that plays your music throughout the house, outside and in the garage.

The kitchen has a 5-burner stove with double oven and Bosch dishwasher. Our kitchen has large custom cupboards for any storage you may need. The kitchen will have all the basics for your use... pots, pans, utensils, air fryer, toaster, keurig machine, dinnerware and silverware.

All on the main floor, opposite side of the house as the family room, there are three bedrooms, all of which have a 40" tv using dish network. The elegant Master has a King size adjustable bed facing the lake, one large guest walk-in closet, and a master ensuite, featuring a water closet and separate shower. Both spacious guest rooms feature a Queen sized bed and a loveseat. Guest bedroom 1, has been named The Nautical Room. As you may have guessed, it is decorated in a nautical theme with a couple sea turtles lurking around. Guest bedroom 2 has been named The Mermaid Room. With tasteful mermaid decor, this room is as relaxing as as it is beautiful. The guest bath is quite large and has a tub/shower combination, and a very large linen closet for all of the towels and toiletries.

Downstairs, it is all VERY open! You will be amazed at just how large this basement is! The basement family room set up has a ceiling mounted movie projection. This means you get to watch your television stations and movies as they are projected onto the wall for a HUGE viewing area. The basement has a separate room/bedroom that can sleep four in twin bunk beds and a twin trundle bed. In the family room area, there are also two full sized futon couches/beds that can sleep four more people. In the "game room" we have a queen sized electric air mattress/bed that is there for you to use if you need. It is in a compact suitcase carrier so it is easy to set up and easy to take down and be out of the way for daytime. We also have an 8' Brunswick pool table AND a cool foosball table ... There are game tables for board games, card games or dominoes; and we have a cart style popcorn machine! The kids - both big and small - are going to love coming downstairs to just hang out! Also downstairs is the washer and dryer, which you are welcome to use. No ironing on vacation!

At the end of our 80' long and 4' wide, sturdy dock, the water is just waist high (abt 3') You'll also see that is where we keep our watercraft on lifts. If you are interested in renting our 22' Bowrider Jet Boat and/or either of the two Jet Skis during your stay, they may be available. Of course, they would be under separate rental agreement and fees. Either of the two kayaks are for your use at no charge. We have lifevests of our own that are available for you to use, however, it is ultimately your responsibility for the safety of those on or near the water. On our new huge patio, plenty of comfortable chairs and seating for everyone! You can also enjoy some time outside throwing bean bags or sitting around the fire. (Wood, marshmallows and crackers...we try to have a constant supply here, and ask that you kindly replenish whatever you have consumed.) SO excited to show off and use our new spacious patio and fire pit!!

The town of Winneconne is a cute, friendly, small community. The 20 minute drive to Oshkosh and the 30 minute drive to Appleton are both real easy ... even for me!

Lake Poygan is a sandy bottom lake, GREAT for fishing in all four seasons of Wisconsin. In the winter months, ice fishing and snowmobiling are also very popular in this area. Lake Poygan is on a chain of lakes, and is great for all day boating! Lake Poygan flows into Lake Butte des Morts (pronounced 'beauti-more'), down the Wolf river and then into Lake Winnebago. Dozens of stops for fuel and food all around ... and lots to see along the way.

You never know what kind of wildlife you will see. It is not unusual to see eagles, ducks and pelicans; and on land you may encounter cranes, deer and rabbit.... I've seen pictures of a family of fox in our backyard from other guests, as well as a water muskrat?! There was a debate about what this creature actually was.

It is the Guest’s responsibility to learn about safety precautions, warning signs and safety procedures concerning Lake Poygan (i.e. parks, trails, fishing, ice, algae, water conditions, etc.) before entering into contract and/or making payment. There are no refunds due to the Lake's current or future condition.

About Tina Francis

We were looking for a vacation home for our family for about 5+ years. When we saw this house, we fell in love with it immediately! Once you stay at CASABLANCA you will know exactly what I mean! We absolutely love that we have over 200 feet of lakefront in our private backyard and quiet little neighborhood.

You never know what kind of wildlife you will see. It is not unusual to see eagles, ducks and pelicans; and on land you may encounter plenty of deer and rabbit.

Tina Francis purchased this house in 2015

Why Tina Francis chose Winneconne

This is a family home in a quiet family community.

Casablanca is NOT a "party house".

In our neighborhood, there is an assumed quiet time after 11pm.

Our home is large, clean and inviting.

We have over 200 feet of peaceful lakefront on Lake Poygan.

At the end of our new 70' dock (4' wide & sturdy), water is just waist high.

Lake Poygan - Great Fishing - All 4 seasons!!

Lake Poygan is very popular during Walleye Weekend, in mid-June.

Big cities, Oshkosh and Appleton are less than a half-n-hr away.

SO MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE AND MORE CONVENIENT THAN A HOTEL!!

What makes this house unique

It is the Guest’s responsibility to learn about safety precautions, warning signs and safety procedures concerning Lake Poygan (i.e. parks, trails, fishing, ice, algae, water conditions, etc.) before entering into contract and/or making payment. There are no refunds due to the Lake's current or future condition.

Stunning property with great views, toys and comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

This rental comes with everything you always seem to forget when you go on vacation, except the toothbrush. Plenty to do within the property and home if you choose to stay in. Beutiful, well maintained and set up.

Impeccable home, highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family girls' weekend at Casablanca recently with 8 guests and couldn't have found a better place for it! The house was cleaner than "Grandma Clean" (and I had my grandma with me to vouch for that!), spacious and very functional for our group. You could have easily fit more guests comfortably. The basement was super fun, the sleeping arrangements were great for our group size, plenty of bathroom space for all these ladies. It was perfect! Tina was a great communicator and it was a pleasure to rent from her. We hope to be back again! Highly recommend!!

It sounds like everybody had a great time. I’d love to have you ladies back the next time you need a get away! God Bless Tina

Hen Fest getaway (Girls weekend)

  • 5 of 5

This is our 13th Hen Fest but it was our first time staying at Casablanca and we will be going back for sure! The house is fantastic and perfect for our family girls getaway. It is beautifully decorated and Tina has thought of everything. The beds were so comfortable and there is never ending space to accommodate a large group. Lots of areas to visit, the circle of love in the kitchen was a favorite spot, the basement had lots to do, ping pong, pool, Foosball and lots of board games. The patio and fire pit is a perfect spot to sit and enjoy the lake and views. We had the most perfect weather 80- 90's this is a record for late September in WI. Thank you again for a wonderful experience see you next year !

Owner's Response: I am so glad you ladies had such a great weekend! I have to admit though, I was a bit jealous of the great weather that you ladies had! I’m so glad you got lots of good use of our new patio and fire pit! I hope you ladies choose Casablanca again next year or whenever you need a weekend away at the lake! God Bless, Tina

Location

GREAT FISHING ON LAKE POYGAN!! Lake Poygan is the prime and popular area for the Walleye Weekend tournament in the Summer. This is also a great area for ice fishing and snowmobiling on the lake. (bring your own snowmobiles and fishing poles). Bar and public boat launch just a few feet away. An additional public boat launch a mile down the road.
