About the property

Upscale, expansive home offers incredible views and value - 5 BR, 4 BA

The Oak House, by Arington Adventures, offers upscale and luxurious comfort, in a beautiful and secluded setting. The open floor plan, exquisite craftsmanship, and top quality furniture, serve as the perfect backdrop, for a family gathering/vacation.

We may be biased, but we're sure you won't find a home this beautiful, on a setting this serene, on this side of the Mississippi.

The Oak House is tucked away on 40 acres of rolling farmland, with open prairies, beautiful woodlands, stunning views, and multiple porches, to enjoy a birds eye view of the sunset. It's a relaxing, and peaceful retreat, where family and friends can gather.

It was built in 2004, and features all the comforts of home.

There are two master bedrooms, both with king size beds, and private baths. One master offers a whirlpool tub, and walk in shower. The other a standard tub and shower.

The other three bedrooms offer a king bed, with a private toilet, and shared shower, a queen bed with a private toilet and shared shower, and two full sized beds, with a shared shower.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you may need to create, and serve, a home cooked meal.

The dining room provides a beautiful live edge table, made by our arborist, with wood from our farm, that seats 8. There is also a counter that seats 4. Extra chairs are provided throughout the home, if more seating is needed.

The spacious layout also provides 2 living-rooms, both with gas fireplaces, a craft/game room, a laundry room, a screened in porch, and so much more.

Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy our walking paths, creek crossings, fat tire bikes, and run-ins with wildlife.

The home also includes a fire pit, grill, patio, basketball hoop, and hot tub.

A large private backyard, surrounded by tall hardwood forest, provides the perfect backdrop for watching the sunset, bird watching, bocce ball, or singing songs around a fire.

The property is 5 miles from downtown Cambridge.

Cambridge, Wisconsin, has become one of the best kept secrets in the state, for outdoor recreational opportunities. In fact, one of the most technical single-track off-road mountain bike trails is located just 2 miles south of Cambridge, in CamRock Park.

CamRock Park also offers hiking, birding, and in the winter, cross county skiing and sledding.

Cambridge is also home to Lake Ripley, a wonderful lake, perfect for kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, or simply a day of swimming and relaxation on the beach. Downtown there are specialty shops, multiple restaurants, coffee shops, and the Piggly Wiggly grocery store.

Madison, home of the UW Badgers, and one of the greatest Farmers' Markets around, is a short 20 minutes away from the property.

The restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and outdoor experiences are endless.

Or, spend a day at the water parks in Wisconsin Dells (1 hour drive); or shop 'til you drop in Chicago (2 hour drive), and then return to the Oak House to rest and recharge.

We love this corner of Wisconsin: the peacefulness of a rural home, with urban amenities only a short driving distance away. You'll be so happy and at home here, you may decide to extend your stay. Come and see for yourself. You'll be glad you did.

You must be 30 years of age or older to rent this property - No exceptions.

Welcome to the Oak House -- we hope your first visit won't be your last!

Exceptional down to the last little detail!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Oak House with family and some close friends for my daughter's wedding weekend. The house was amazing - even more stunning than the pictures! From beautiful furnishings to a well stocked kitchen to ultra comfortable bedrooms - everything is incredibly appointed, you'll want for nothing. There are great places to gather in the house - having coffee and tea with the group in the screened porch was our favorite!

We come from a place with quite a bit of noise pollution and the Oak House is on a huge tree farm so the only noises we heard were birds and crickets - it was heavenly.

Something that is important to us when renting is from whom you rent. Rachel, who manages the property, was fabulous and incredibly accommodating. She met us on check-in, took us through this gorgeous property and then proceeded to ask us if there was anything missing and that she would take care of it. Rachel and Joe checked in with us periodically to make sure everything was going well and took great care of us!

Spent a long weekend with my family and really enjoyed our stay.

Joe was easy to communicate with and very hospitable.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place.

Everything in the house is perfect, from the kitchen to the bedding.

The house is very clean and well kept.

Thanks again for the hospitality.

Other reviewers who say it exceeds photos and description are absolutely right.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wedding at a venue 8 miles away. This home for extended family members from 10 months to 100 years old suited all of us. Fully equipped with every imaginable amenity including a couple of bikes to explore the country roads or 600 acre property. Just a note in case it matters to anyone, the larger master suite, the queen size bed connected via the Jack and Jill baths to the single plus trundle are on the entry level and the other king suite and two doubles with 1/2 bath down the hall are down a level. Overall, just WOW!! Do not hesitate to reserve this home. You and your guests will be ecstatic that you did. Owner is on property next door and yet full privacy afforded. Kind and gracious in every way.
