“Just What We Needed...”
Reviewed 16 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

Unplugging with my teenage boys for a long weekend before school started, we longed for a place to relax that wasn't "boring". We found the perfect spot at Nanette and Hans' home.

Arriving early evening, Nanette greeted us warmly. We instantly felt welcomed to the lovely, cozy home. We were so relieved to see a kitchen stocked well enough that we wouldnt have to run out shopping; plenty of breakfast goods and a great coffee selection awaited.

The property is serene and expansive; my children were shocked to see turkeys trotting through our yard! Cranes flying over and frogs stuck to every window at night only added to the country charm.

Traveling to the town for dinners at quaint restaurants and spending our days renting various watertoys filled our days with fun and sun. Looking forward to going "home" and starting a bonfire was even more exciting. There were beer, wine and plenty of other refreshments readily available to enhance our stay.

The closets were over stocked with fresh fluffy bedding; every soap, lotion, shampoo offered for our use. Like staying with family but better.

They are extremely generous people and we can't wait to return. Highly recommended.

“Well-kept home in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My family and I had a wonderful time visiting in the Elkhart Lake area. We enjoyed hydro-biking and canoeing on the lake. We had a wonderful lunch at 'Off the Rail' restaurant. We also hiked at Kettle Morraine State Forest and Kohler-Andrae State park. We built a fire and cooked s'mores at the home as well as throwing a frisbee around on the lawn. The home was perfect for our family of five and well-stocked. Nanette was helpful and very accommodating. We would not hesitate to recommend this as a wonderful relaxing vacation site.

Thanks for your kind words. You treated my home gently, and I'm grateful. What an impressive family. Your sons are so friendly and charming (not a word I use often to describe teenage boys). I could have talked with you all day. I hope you return someday so I can do just that. You're welcome back anytime. Blessings.

person found this review helpful

This beautiful family-friendly home and property was perfect for us! Plenty of room for a larger family, with all the amenities. A large, well equipped kitchen made it very nice to eat most of our meals right there. Everything was very clean with many extra touches (brochures for attractions and activities in the area, carefully folded towels, etc) to welcome us. The home has tons of natural light from many lovely windows, for a bright happy atmosphere. The property is large and private and we saw deer, turkeys, and geese during our stay. The country location is still close to everything we wanted to do. We loved getting to visit with Nanette before and upon our arrival. Her gracious hospitality made our stay that much sweeter. For those looking for a vacation rental in this area....this is it!

“Perfect little getaway, felt just like home!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in this lovely home for three nights when we brought out children to visit Elkhart Lake. It was truly the perfect choice for our stay; we have two boys, ages seven and four. The lake was a short distance away and we enjoyed the sunny days there, and then returned to the comforts of this very clean and welcoming house which sits on a large piece of land. Everything we could have needed or wanted was already in the house...it did not have the feel of a rental, more like you were staying with family. Nanette certainly did give us the most pleasant welcome, even taking the time to learn the names of our kids before we arrived. She stopped by briefly to greet us, and it ended up being a highlight of our visit since she brought some puppies she was fostering to play with our boys.

The house itself was very comfortable. The beds were very cozy, the towels fluffy, and while we didn't require them I noticed plenty of extra blankets around the house. The boys enjoyed the books and games in the home, and we all enjoyed being outside, having bonfires and just walking around. It was very private, but close to civilization and lake access. Truly we could not have asked for anything more! We would most definitely recommend this house to anyone who was going to stay in the Elkhart Lake area! :) Thanks so much for opening your home to us!

“Excellent retreat to relax in!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Nanette and Hans home is an excellent retreat to relax in. Perfectly located close enough to Road America, yet it is remote enough to get away from everything, but nature! While I was making my dinner, I watched several deer grazing the prairie grasses that surround the house. The house itself is very comfortable and Nanette and Hans make you feel at home.

Thanks for your kind words, Brian. I'm glad you saw a deer last night. There are many. Please come back when you're not in the middle of a race, and have more time to relax! We'd love to hear about all your adventures.

“Beautiful, Peaceful home”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I was lucky enough to stay at Nanette and Hans' beautiful home last weekend and had a wonderful time. The house is lovely and secluded, with gorgeous views in all directions. It feels like your own private oasis. There are three comfortable bedrooms, a beautiful, spacious, and sunny living room and kitchen/dining room, and a big garage. Nanette was very kind and made us feel right at home when we arrived.

Despite it's rural feel, the house is only a few minutes drive from downtown Elkhart Lake. We went for the town's annual winter festival, which was a blast. Elkhart Lake is a picturesque town that is a lot of fun to explore. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are planning to visit the Elkhart Lake area (and if you're not, I recommend that you plan to!)

Thanks, J, D and G! Your kind words mean a great deal to me, and you were all very gracious and thoughtful guests. My husband, daughter and I enjoyed getting to know you. You're welcome back anytime.

And definitely come back in the summer, when the village really comes to life and is even more picturesque. It's gorgeous here year-round, but there's something about the lake when it's surrounded by all that green ...
