About John and Cindy

We both grew up in Wautoma, left for college and returned to raise our family here.. We have been married 30+ years and have two grown daughters. We love living in such a beautiful location and enjoy the small town.

John and Cindy purchased this house in 1994

Why John and Cindy chose Central Wisconsin

This home was a private home until recently and we are now offering it as a weekly rental because we feel it is in an absolutely beautiful location on Porters Lake.

What makes this house unique

No adjacent neighbors, private wooded location on beautiful Porters Lake. Steps to your own private pier, great fishing, abundance of wildlife. Spot the Bald eagles, and Sand hill cranes as they fish the lake!

Memories Made

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was simply fantastic. We were a group of young adults celebrating a few of our graduations and a birthday and wanted to get away and do some fishing. Porter Lake provided just that. What really stood out though, was the property itself. The kitchen and simply every room was stocked very well and never did we not find what we were looking for. Saturday it happened to rain all day however, with the extremely entertaining basement and poker room (Three screen porch), there was not one moment that we were left scratching our head wondering what to do. Another aspect that led to the 5 stars was that at anytime I contacted Cindy, she promptly responded with very informative information that thoroughly answered my questions. We are very much looking forward to coming back each year!

We all had a great time. The house, yard, and lake were exactly as advertised. We had 10 adult men and never felt like there wasn't enough room. Everything was clean and in working order. Beautiful area. And if your lucky you will get a visit from the friendliest border collie you will ever meet and she will show you around the place.

Owner's Response: We look forward to having your group visit again next year at Lakeview Shores. You definitely left our place cleaner than you arrived with raking out my flower bed! Thank you again! Our border collie, "Callie", has seemed to have appointed herself our official mascot to greet our guests. While she is well behaved, we don't want her to be a nuisance so a simple command of "go home" and she will leave and return home. Thanks for being greet guests....hope you had great luck fishing. See you next year! John & Cindy

Good Times

  • 5 of 5

We went as a group of late 30 somethings for a friends weekend. We had a wonderful time. If you are looking for 5 star accommodations this is not the place for you. If you are down to earth and a looking for comfortable, cozy, clean location here it is. The space was large and well equip. I can see bringing a family of all ages to spend sometime. It was perfect for us as a group of middle age professionals just looking to get away for the weekend.

Cozy Home With Great/Private Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for an ice fishing trip on Porters Lake. The house was a great home base for our fishing crew and made the whole experience so easy and enjoyable. Caught lots of fish even though it was 60 degrees out! Afterwords, went back to the house to relax and play some fun games in the game room in the basement. Everything in the house was as advertised and John and Cindy were very responsive with our requests and even let us use some of their personal equipment. I would like to come back in the summer to see all the other things the house has to offer!
