My family and I currently live in Singapore, but decided to come back and visit the US this past summer. As we live a very urban daily life, we wanted our two kids to experience cottage life and found this cabin on VRBO. We spent a month here, splitting our time between the two 3-bedroom cottages and found that both cottages exceeded our expectations!
To start, the cottages were both extremely comfortable and well set-up, especially the kitchens. We found that they had everything that we needed to cook at-home meals all summer. They both came with air con, though we found that the ceiling fans were enough for us. The beds were very comfortable, there were more than enough bathrooms for everyone and we loved having washers/dryers right in the cottage.
The lake is beautiful and there are enough activities to keep us occupied- we recommend renting the kayaks and the pontoon boat. There are also adult bikes for rent that looked great. Our kids loved the sandbox/swing set/slide area that is available for children staying in the resort.
The location is amazing! Stoughton is a small, charming town and the city of Madison is only a 20-minute drive. If you have kids, there are some amazing places to take them: in Stoughton, there is a man-made swimming lake and beach called Troll Beach, which our kids loved, as well as a very nice public library with a great section for kids and a petting zoo nearby; Madison has a fantastic children's' museum, and the Wisconsin Dells are an hour away. If you like shopping, there are two outlet malls that are both within an hour's drive.
Frank, the owner, could not be nicer and he was so helpful and kind to us during our entire visit. He is always available when needed to answer questions or give advice on places to visit.
I cannot recommend this place enough, and we hope to return and stay again in the future!
