Why Robert Garofalo chose Wild Rose

My husband and I were looking for a lake home with crystal clear water and a sandy beach to relax and spend time with our children. We found the perfect spot to build a log home to enjoy all four seasons in Wisconsin. Many wonderful memories were created with family and friends. Summers were spent water skiing, wake boarding, tubing, swimming, fishing and bouncing or resting on our trampoline raft. We can't count the number of children that learned to ski on our lake. The fall is truly beautiful with incredible colors filling the rolling hills and perfect for enjoying bike rides or long walks. Our children all learned to ski at Nordic Mountain which is less than 10 minutes away. There is a very nice network of snowmobile trails in Waushara county. We are hopeful that you and your family can create happy memories at Lakeview Lodge.

Great spot for family get together

  • 5 of 5

Grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends all had a comfortable stay. We rented a pontoon boat and spent lots of time on the lake. The little ones (3 and 5) loved swimming, the teens loved the water trampoline, and the adults had many laughs around the fire at night. Hot tub was perfect in the morning at sunrise. Kitchen is well equipped for cooking, lots of extra pillows, towels and blankets. We are looking forward to visiting again

We absolutely loved the cabin and the lake! Our family of 18 had plenty of room to enjoy the week!

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin was amazing and clean! It has three bathrooms which was useful for all 18 of us. The kids loved the hot tub and the trampoline and the ping pong table. Two outdoor decks/patios were awesome! The lake is amazing and sandy bottom. The kitchen had everything we needed and the table was perfect for all of our card games. We had an amazing week and would definitely go back!

beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Very nice for our party of 20. Comfy beds, kitchen well stocked with any utensil you'd need for baking or cooking, and nice extras like a basket of beach towels which came in handy when we braved the lake with sub 70 degree temps!

Everything you could hope for!

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was really clean, and had everything you'd need cooking, eating, grilling, swimming, sunbathing, hanging by the fire pit, etc. The kayaks, paddle boat, and water trampoline really elevated our trip as well.

Great stay at a fantastic cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice place, tons of room and activities. Small cons on an overall great place:

-No condiments/cooking essentials stored (ketchup, oils etc)

-neighbors were pretty dang close (but no negative impact in our stay)

Highly recommend for large groups!
