This spacious home is ideal for getting away and relaxing in Browns Lake, Wisconsin. The property is located on a one acre, secluded wooded lot creating a peaceful environment for short or long getaways. Enjoy canoeing, kayaking, swimming, fishing off our pier, and sunsets at our private community beach.

The space

This waterfront cabin is located an hour from Chicago, near local amenities, on a peaceful channel with direct access to beautiful Brown's Lake. The 400 acre lake supports boating, water sports, swimming, and excellent year round fishing. Walk to our private community beach to enjoy breathtaking sunsets, sand-bottom swimming, and volleyball.

The home is spacious with divided areas for multiple families with ample parking, basement kids' tv room, spacious living room with a beautiful custom stone wood-burning fireplace. 4 bedrooms plus a loft area. The original cottage was built by Scottish brothers in the 20s with an addition completing the structure in the 60s. We've made many updates while trying to keep the charm of the original cabin's craftsmanship.

A large backyard and basketball net provide hours of outdoor entertainment. WiFi and 2 HDTVs with Roku/Amazon Prime Movies/CableTV are available. USB charging ports available on lamps in most bedrooms.

Fishing from our dock is for anglers of every age and skill - catch panfish, bass, (limited) catfish/carp, and northern pike.

In the winter ice fishing huts are available for rent (30-50$) from the local bait shop. Short drive to local ski resorts like Alpine Valley and Wilmot Mountain.

Launch your own boat or rent one (off lake) at Fischer County Park Boat Launch (small fee) and moor it at our home's large dock/pier. We recommend that boats have engine trim/tilt and biminis that lower to navigate our channel's viaduct - contact us for more details.

Though the lake is a pretty quiet haven in the fall, it’s close enough to Burlington to have quick access to shopping (at least for food!) and some good restaurants.

Like you, we do like the Northwoods feel; but the close access to great grocery stores. The restaurants...we like Freds for burgers and Zumpanos for pizza.

Kurt and Kim have an amazing lakeside cabin. There are plenty of beds and places to sleep and congregate inside. The outdoor space is even better though with a grill and patio furniture for a large crowd, fire pit, and water access. Couldn't have been happier with the stay!

Great location and awesome hosts! Kim and Kurt were very communicative, allowed us the space to enjoy our weekend, and have an awesome house. The lake is beautiful and we were blessed with great weather in September. Highly recommended for a fun lake weekend!

A group of friends and I rented this home for a weekend to celebrate my birthday. We were looking for a relaxing getaway close to the city(Chicago) and that's exactly what Kurt and Kim's home was. Everyone enjoyed canoeing, kayaking, paddle boating and the great patio and backyard. They also allowed me to bring my dogs (and even had a crate that I could borrow for the larger dog). This is a cozy and spacious house where everyone can enjoy various aspects of the home but still gather for meals and fun in the family room, patio, etc. Anytime I had a question they were quick to respond and had every single thing ready for us to enjoy and relax. I will definitely return here the next time I am looking for a getaway to Brown's Lake!

This home is truly a retreat away from it all. Every detail has been covered for a family, down to step stools in the bathrooms and a huge array of kids' toys, books, and games in the loft. You could literally come to this home with only the clothes on your back, and know that every comfort will be taken care of! The boats are so much fun and the view from the picture window in the master is incredible to wake up to. The cabin feels so cozy and rustic - the pictures don't do it justice! This was our second trip here and we plan to return every summer our schedules allow. This has become our family's special summer place and we're so thankful to have found it. We are leaving refreshed and with many wonderful new memories!

The house and location were both perfect and even better than advertised. Best vacation I have ever taken. Kurt and Kim were above and beyond with their accommodations and hospitality. If all airbnb hosts were as gracious as Kurt and Kim, I'd never stay at a hotel again!
