About Keith & Virginia Wick

Allow us to introduce ourselves…we are Keith and Virginia Wick, proud co-owners and property managers of Butternut Bungalow, a vacation rental property located on Lake Sinissippi in Juneau, Wisconsin. Since August of 2012, we have been blessed with the opportunity to provide a relaxing and comfortable get-a-way for guests traveling from all parts of the United States to the Dodge County area. Our 36 years of sales and customer service experience have afforded us a natural progression into the hospitality industry. Guests visit Butternut Bungalow looking for a way to retreat from their day-to-day routine. As co-owners and property managers, our primary objective is to do our part in making their stay a memorable one. Keeping our guests' needs in the forefront of our minds has been paramount to our success. Virginia, with her design and staging background, especially enjoys making the place unique for each and every guest.

Keith & Virginia Wick purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Keith & Virginia Wick chose Wisconsin

Back in 2008 we began looking for lake property near the Milwaukee area. We have been boating enthusiasts for some time and decided it was time to realize our dream of living near the water 24/7. We had already built one house and were interested in building another, so we began our search with the intention of finding a place where we could design and build our lake home. As it turned out Lake Sinissippi was that place! We drove around the area looking for the perfect spot and while viewing one house for sale, we stumbled on another that had just been put on the market. A double lot, with a little garage/apartment on one and a spot to build our new home on the other. They sold as a set and we decided to take the plunge. We renovated the smaller house and gave it a name - Butternut Bungalow and lived in it while we built our new house next door. It's a great little place that has turned into a get-a-way spot for two. Celebrate your anniversary, birthday, honeymoon, or simply time to wind down. It's perfect!

What makes this bungalow unique

As the photo of us shows…WOW! We fell in love with what seemed to be a very well-kept secret - Lake Sinissippi. You can feel the peacefulness as you wind your way in to the lake.

W-O-W stands for Wicks' On Water and we'd love for you to come experience life on the water, in any season, at Butternut Bungalow.

An excellent site for a quiet, relaxing and refreshing vacation or get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent hospitality! Super quiet and very relaxing for a get-away. Keith and Virginia are great hosts and the property is kept in immaculate condition. We saw more wildlife - fox, family of racoons, deer, muskrat, fowl, etc - than we've seen at our own home! Lake Sinissippi is so peaceful and quiet, sitting in the rockers on the porch reading a book is what a vacation is about! Thank you!!

Just what the doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I walked into the bungalow, my stress level decreased. The owners keep the property inside and out in immaculate condition. Literally, everything I needed was there for my use. I was able to kick back and enjoy! And, that's exactly what I did! I cannot wait to return.

Cute cute cute! So many little personal touches, surprises await in every room. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Thank you for allowing us to stay at Butternut Bungalow, this place is very clean, the bed has ample pillows and is very comfy, we enjoyed watching the birds, squirrels, chipmunks and woodchuck while we had our morning coffee, later we sat on the dock and enjoyed the calm peaceful lake. A perfect getaway location to unwind.

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three, had the most wonderful stay at the Bungalow!!

Worried how our three year old would travel, we just hadn't much as a family. As our trip ended and we pulled away, he sat crying because he wanted to stay there, "Forever and ever.."

We happened to agree!

Already looking to book our next stay. Thank you Virginia and Keith!

From the moment we pulled in the driveway, we knew this was going to be just what we needed! The cottage was beautifully decorated and so clean! The little details were much appreciated. The cookies (awesome) trail mix (superb) and sparkling cider (delicious). There wasn't anything that the hosts, Keith and Virginia, did not think of to make our stay enjoyable. We had a fire by the lake most of our stay which is how we love to spend evenings! During the day we checked out some of the surrounding towns. The best part was that we were able to relax & unwind.

Thank you Keith and Virginia!

Tranquil comfort

  • 5 of 5

One of the best get away from it all stays we have ever had - the bungalow is very well set up and Virginia and Keith have tastefully organised this little gem to be both private and practical.

We had just been at Oshkosh 2017 and after the noise and crowds at the wonderful EAA air venture this stay was perfect to recharge before the long journey home to Australia.

It didn't impinge on our experience but we couldn't find a chopping board and some mixed herbs would have been useful.

The BBQ and the cooker (gas hob and electric oven combo) were both easy to use and capable.

The weather was windy so we didn't venture out in the canoe or on the pedal boat but the lake looks well worth a voyage.

Highest recommendation to any individual or couple who would like a peaceful and private get away.
