Ranch home with huge backyard directly on the lake
About Katie Skipworth
We are a newly wed couple from the Chicago suburbs. We feel tied down to this area because of our jobs, family and friends, but have ALWAYS wanted to be in a less crowded, quieter area on the water somewhere. Our solution was to try the best of both worlds with this vacation rental and since we can't always be up north, we want to share our home away from home with you!
Katie Skipworth purchased this House in 2016
Why Katie Skipworth chose Oshkosh
We currently live in a townhome in the Chicago suburbs, so instead of upgrading to a house with a yard in Illinois, why not get a house on Lake Winnebago to enjoy some weekends and share with others on the rest!
What makes this House unique
The entire outdoor area is what initially attracted us to the home. Beautiful huge yard with our own pier located in a quiet cove off Lake Winnebago. The cove is shallow and sandy, great for paddle-boarding / kayaks / swimming. The interior of the home is also quite cozy and comfortable as well, but we enjoy the outdoors the most :)

We stayed and the first night didn’t have power so couldn’t flush toilets and no water or lights and with six kids not the best. Neighbor wasn’t very nice when we walked on property by lake to see fish he yelled.
Family Reunion Was Wonderful
This is an absolutely beautiful property! The house is steps from the water. The owner has fully stocked the house from towels and linens to pots, pans and full kitchen utensils, plates, vips, glasses, etc. Our family gathering was wonderful with no worries of what to do! We sat on the deck enjoying watching the kids play at the water. So many memories made. The sunrise off the water is breathtaking!
Wonderful for Relaxing!
Our family loved staying here while visiting family. Everything you need is there. The communication with the owner was perfect. Great view of lake! Quiet neighborhood! We loved the area!
Enjoyed Our Stay
We enjoyed our stay at this property on Lake Winnebago. Owner was friendly and helpful. Property was excellently cared for and very comfortable. We were able to enjoy wonderfully warm, spring like weather. The property easily accommodated four adults. Katie also left great instructions about care of the property and area restaurants and services. Thanks so much for sharing this property with us.
This home has a great view of the lake and one of the bigiest dive ways around the point.
this came in handy we had 4 trucks parked comfortably on the lot.
Comfortable, quiet lake home
My wife and I spent a relaxing week at the Hideaway. Our 3 adult children and spouse joined us for the weekend. The lake home was a perfect fit for us, very warm and comfortable, even through the -20 degree windchill one day and another day with 10" of snow. Katie has a very efficient snow removal crew (I couldn't even find a snow shovel).
The house is bigger than the photos make it appear, and the furniture and beds were super comfortable. Every detail was arranged, even down to boxes of tissues in the bedrooms.
We really enjoyed our stay.
Thanks Katie for sharing your awesome lake home with us.
Thanks for the great review Roger! I cannot believe how cold it has been, grateful for the new furnace :)
