About the property

Over 3,600 sqft spacious lakefront home, perfect for relaxation or gatherings!

Still a few weekends open for Summer of 2019!!

Welcome to CASABLANCA!! Located in a quiet little neighborhood, away from the city's hustle and bustle. Casablanca is our home away from home.

Right away when you walk in the front door of Casablanca, you can see the beautiful Lake Poygan through the wall of windows just beyond the living room. In the kitchen, your views of the lake only get better, with a breakfast nook & lounge (aka the circle of love) area in the bay windows. There is a large kitchen table, which can easily seat 8. In the family room, your views of the lake are right in front of you, and in the evening after you have played on the lake all day, you will have a 48" TV w/dish network to watch as you sit back and relax. There is a convenient half-bath just around the corner from the family room. We also have a whole-house sound system, using CD's or an aux cord that plays your music throughout the house, outside and in the garage.

The kitchen has a 5-burner stove with double oven and Bosch dishwasher. Our kitchen has large custom cupboards for any storage you may need. The kitchen will have all the basics for your use... pots, pans, utensils, air fryer, toaster, keurig machine, dinnerware and silverware.

All on the main floor, opposite side of the house as the family room, there are three bedrooms, all of which have a 40" tv using dish network. The elegant Master has a King size adjustable bed facing the lake, one large guest walk-in closet, and a master ensuite, featuring a water closet and separate shower. Both spacious guest rooms feature a Queen sized bed and a loveseat. Guest bedroom 1, has been named The Nautical Room. As you may have guessed, it is decorated in a nautical theme with a couple sea turtles lurking around. Guest bedroom 2 has been named The Mermaid Room. With tasteful mermaid decor, this room is as relaxing as as it is beautiful. The guest bath is quite large and has a tub/shower combination, and a very large linen closet for all of the towels and toiletries.

Downstairs, it is all VERY open! You will be amazed at just how large this basement is! The basement family room set up has a ceiling mounted movie projection. This means you get to watch your television stations and movies as they are projected onto the wall for a HUGE viewing area. The basement has a separate room/bedroom that can sleep four in twin bunk beds and a twin trundle bed. In the family room area, there are also two full sized futon couches/beds that can sleep four more people. In the "game room" we have a queen sized electric air mattress/bed that is there for you to use if you need. It is in a compact suitcase carrier so it is easy to set up and easy to take down and be out of the way for daytime. We also have an 8' Brunswick pool table AND a cool foosball table ... There are game tables for board games, card games or dominoes; and we have a cart style popcorn machine! The kids - both big and small - are going to love coming downstairs to just hang out! Also downstairs is the washer and dryer, which you are welcome to use. No ironing on vacation!

At the end of our 80' long and 4' wide, sturdy dock, the water is just waist high (abt 3') You'll also see that is where we keep our watercraft on lifts. If you are interested in renting our 22' Bowrider Jet Boat and/or either of the two Jet Skis during your stay, they may be available. Of course, they would be under separate rental agreement and fees. Either of the two kayaks are for your use at no charge. We have lifevests of our own that are available for you to use, however, it is ultimately your responsibility for the safety of those on or near the water. On our new huge patio, plenty of comfortable chairs and seating for everyone! You can also enjoy some time outside throwing bean bags or sitting around the fire. (Wood, marshmallows and crackers...we try to have a constant supply here, and ask that you kindly replenish whatever you have consumed.) SO excited to show off and use our new spacious patio and fire pit!!

The town of Winneconne is a cute, friendly, small community. The 20 minute drive to Oshkosh and the 30 minute drive to Appleton are both real easy ... even for me!

Lake Poygan is a sandy bottom lake, GREAT for fishing in all four seasons of Wisconsin. In the winter months, ice fishing and snowmobiling are also very popular in this area. Lake Poygan is on a chain of lakes, and is great for all day boating! Lake Poygan flows into Lake Butte des Morts (pronounced 'beauti-more'), down the Wolf river and then into Lake Winnebago. Dozens of stops for fuel and food all around ... and lots to see along the way.

You never know what kind of wildlife you will see. It is not unusual to see eagles, ducks and pelicans; and on land you may encounter cranes, deer and rabbit.... I've seen pictures of a family of fox in our backyard from other guests, as well as a water muskrat?! There was a debate about what this creature actually was.

It is the Guest’s responsibility to learn about safety precautions, warning signs and safety procedures concerning Lake Poygan (i.e. parks, trails, fishing, ice, algae, water conditions, etc.) before entering into contract and/or making payment. There are no refunds due to the Lake's current or future condition.

About Tina Francis

We were looking for a vacation home for our family for about 5+ years. When we saw this house, we fell in love with it immediately! Once you stay at CASABLANCA you will know exactly what I mean! We absolutely love that we have over 200 feet of lakefront in our private backyard and quiet little neighborhood.

You never know what kind of wildlife you will see. It is not unusual to see eagles, ducks and pelicans; and on land you may encounter plenty of deer and rabbit.

Tina Francis purchased this house in 2015

Why Tina Francis chose Winneconne

This is a family home in a quiet family community.

Casablanca is NOT a "party house".

In our neighborhood, there is an assumed quiet time after 11pm.

Our home is large, clean and inviting.

We have over 200 feet of peaceful lakefront on Lake Poygan.

At the end of our new 70' dock (4' wide & sturdy), water is just waist high.

Lake Poygan - Great Fishing - All 4 seasons!!

Lake Poygan is very popular during Walleye Weekend, in mid-June.

Big cities, Oshkosh and Appleton are less than a half-n-hr away.

clean and spacious cabin, lots of amenities, close to local fun pub, good dock, boat rental avail.

  • 5 of 5

the cabin is a great place to stay, pool, ping pong, Foosball, home theater downstairs. TV's in every bedroom and really nice kitchen. great patio with built in firepit and plenty of room for everyone. great dock, its a bit shallow on the dock so jet boats are great but regular prop boats need to trim up a lot to pull up. lake is great to tube and ski on if you like that. heard its a great walleye lake as well for fishermen. local pub is only a 5 min walk away if you like to go out at night. fun water volleyball there too. bean bags and other yard games at the cabin available. jet ski and boat rentals are really nice and pretty cheap compared to rental companies. tubes and kneeboards were there when i was there for use too. overall great place to stay!

Wonderful Place, Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Casablanca!! The house easily accommodated our larger group and was a great place for kids - the basement "movie" room, pool table, games, etc. was the perfect spot for the kids to hang out while the adults enjoyed themselves upstairs. The fire pit and patio were well used as well - easily accessible to the house/kitchen, overlooking the lake and offering more than enough seating options.

Jeff and Tina were very accommodating, available and helpful! We had a blast and would highly recommend Casablanca to other families!

Owner's Response: That was so nice! I am so happy that your family had such a great time at Casablanca. It’s nice to hear that the kids got to play downstairs and that the basement got plenty of good use! We love our new patio I’m glad you had time to enjoy it. You and your family are welcome back anytime. God bless, Tina

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Tina's place for our annual summer trip and couldn't have asked for a better place. The house is awesome, has anything you could need, and is even nicer and bigger than it looks in the pictures. We easily fit a group of 10 with room to spare. The kitchen is great for cooking for a group, the basement is awesome and full of endless entertainment if you face any bad weather, and we took full advantage of the patio, yard and lake! Tina has kayaks you can take out, a nice dock, and the water is shallow and warm so you can spend all day out there if you want. My only wish is that we had more time to spend there!

We spent 3 days at Casablanca this past weekend with the maximum number of guests, ages 3-73. All of the accommodations were over and above what we expected. Tina and Jeff have furnished this vacation home with ALL of the comforts and needs of home away from home. The bugs were bad for any "around the campfire" entertainment, but they are bad everywhere. The water activities were enjoyed by all, young and old! We would not hesitate to recommend this home to other prospective vacationers. Thanks for everything!

Owner's Response: We are truly blessed to have families like your come out to Casablanca and spend family time together. We are so glad that you all had so much fun! ...And yes, we can't do much about the bugs this year :( Thank you for taking time to write your review, it means the world to me that our guests have a great time at Casablanca, and share that with others. Hope you choose Casablanca again sometime in the future. God Bless, Tina

Outstanding, Amazing, Superb

  • 5 of 5

This lake home was beyond our greatest expectations. It was beautifully furnished / extensively equipped as if the owners lived there full time. It was very close to the lake with various water equipment for our use. The lake was shallow for quite a distance allowing for safe water activities for children. Also, there seemed to be good fishing on this large lake. The home was equipped with extensive recreational equipment / games which kept the younger members of our group well entertained. Casablanca was outstanding in every way! Donna and family

Owner's Response: I am delighted that your family loved it at Casablanca; we do love it there as well. I try to make sure that when I am there, I don't have to leave, hence, it is well stocked for our guests as well ... and I am always glad to hear that the kids had fun downstairs playing! (My husband and son usually have their own ping-pong tournament.) I hope to have you and your family back again next time you need a get-away!! God Bless, Tina.

GREAT FISHING ON LAKE POYGAN!! Lake Poygan is the prime and popular area for the Walleye Weekend tournament in the Summer. This is also a great area for ice fishing and snowmobiling on the lake. (bring your own snowmobiles and fishing poles). Bar and public boat launch just a few feet away. An additional public boat launch a mile down the road.
