About the property

Perfect For Families And Friends!

The Winne Cottage was just renovated and is now available to you! Come enjoy lake living. Located on a cul-de-sac, you'll find the location for a quintessential lake get away. Far enough away for peace and quiet, yet close enough to enjoy shopping and meals out! Things are clean, comfortable and ready for your visit!

This two story home with central air conditioning, has a fully stocked kitchen with quartz countertops, living room with flat screen TV, DVD player, cable and Wi-fi, dining room with a large table, one bedroom with a king bed and full bath on the main floor and three more bedrooms with a full bath upstairs. In the basement you'll find a ping pong table for a little friendly competition!

You can hang out on the deck and enjoy the beautiful view of Lake Winnebago or spend time on the dock fishing and swimming. There is excellent swimming right off the pier! We have a two person kayak, two kids kayaks and the bean bag game for additional fun!

In the evening, you can grill out on the charcoal grill and afterward make s'mores on our fire pit out by the water! We have bag chairs to pull around the fire, so everyone can have a seat!

Come stay in the winter for excellent ice fishing, ice skating and hanging out indoors by our wood burning fireplace! There are things to do all year long!

Our home is available to rent during the EAA AirVenture Festival! We are two miles from the EAA Seaplane Base and seven miles from Wittman Regional Airport. You'll enjoy days at the festivals and evenings relaxing by the lake. There is plenty of room!

We are a fifteen minute drive to downtown Oshkosh and about a twenty minute down to downtown Fond du Lac. Come stay with us!

The property was quiet and cozy with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

The property was quiet and peaceful and the view was amazing. The back yard led right up to the lake, and we were able to enjoy beautiful sunrises right from the dining room table. The house was newly renovated and the updated kitchen was quite nice. We had a cold and rainy weekend visit but still had a great time hanging out inside, playing games, and enjoying the quiet neighborhood.

This vacation home is awesome

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at the Winne Cottage.

The home is cozy, has been updated, the views of the lake are spectacular.

There were 6 adults and 2 babies, and plenty of room for all of us.

I can't wait to return.

Wonderful house in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Our two families (4 adults and 2 kids) spent a long weekend at the Winne Cottage. The house was spotless and had more than enough room for all of us. Even with the large dining table, we spent a lot of time sitting around the kitchen island (it's even larger than it looks in the pictures!) We took several trips out in the kayaks, and the kids enjoyed fishing from the dock. The neighborhood is very quiet, and the next-door neighbors were very gracious and friendly. This is not the place for a wild bachelor party, but it's perfect for a relaxing getaway with friends and family. Kristen was very kind and responsive. We highly recommend the Winne Cottage.

Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Kristen's rental property on Lake Winnebago was a very pleasant experience. Convenient to Oshkosh if you want to go into town for activities, rentals, or groceries. My husband and I rented her house over Labor Day (Sep 1-5, 2017) so our family could get together for a quick, convenient weekend. Her home is well equipped, linens, towels, soaps, kitchen has all what you need, washer and dryer downstairs, great to have all the games and toys, and paper products provided as well (but bring your own kleenex). The bedrooms were very comfortable; it worked out nice for my husband and me on the main level and our children and grandchildren in the 3 bedrooms upstairs. The main living area is spacious and open. The sunrise in the morning is beautiful. Wonderful sitting out at night having campfires; would be helpful if there were some dim lights on the deck steps or maybe solar lights near the deck, nothing bright, but to be able to see a little better where you're stepping in the dark. Lake Winnebago is huge, can be choppy at times. Lots of fun sitting out on the deck, playing in the yard, and out on the pier. However, a little difficult for water access. We brought some of our own kayaks and a canoe and also used the child kayaks provided. With the water level low, it wasn't the easiest to lift things in and out of the water. The pier has a ladder, once on the lake, we had a lot of fun going "around", through the channel, and back to the house. The house is at the end of a quiet street, friendly neighbors; a peaceful, enjoyable time! Thank you.

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house, neighbors were very friendly! Only thing that was a surprise was leaving the boat in the water was an issue with the wind and the pier, other than that it was perfect.
