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!!

Beautiful, neat, clean, cozy cottage. Perfect get-away for 2

The cottage was perfect for a quick escape. The little extras made it very sweet and cozy. Possibly the cleanest place I have ever stayed, it even smelled clean.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took a couple of days to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary, and boy did we pick a winner. Keith and Virginia did a wonderful job when they redid the bungalow. All top quality finishes, very pretty woods with excellent craftsmanship. The property is a dream and with the included paddle boat, a great way to relax. Everything you could need is included, plus a bag of chocolate chunk cookies, trail mix and even a bottle of wine to wash it down. If you are looking to relax, enjoy the lake or the surrounding area, this is THE place. It looks better live than in the pictures. As the saying goes, you will not be disappointed.

Charming, relaxing, and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed for a couple nights to celebrate our anniversary and for a short escape from the city.

The property beyond met our expectations.

The cottage was decorated nicely, very comfortable, and provided everything we needed.

The scenery and wildlife made for a wonderful atmosphere.

This is a perfect place for a lover's getaway. We plan on returning and will recommend it to friends!

Nature's Paradise With ALL the Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Butternut Bungalow. The cottage was so inviting, the special "goodies" were delicious, and the atmosphere was a reflection of God's beautiful creation!

We took a walk each morning, sat on the porch drinking coffee and watching the fish jump, the squirrels play, and the mama and daddy geese guide and direct their babies. Each evening we enjoyed the summer breeze from the dock and watched the gorgeous moon come up from behind the trees over the lake.

This getaway has the best of everything!! We would highly recommend it!!
