About cass

bought this cottage in a summer cottage community in lake Geneva for myself, and tore down to build a new home. I repurposed many of the doors and used antique barn beam to support the loft. I did much of the work myself before meeting my now husband...and moving in with him and having a now 5 yr old daughter, so I never got to enjoy myself. I hope your family enjoys my home, I live only minutes away and always happy to help you make your stay perfect.

cass purchased this house in 2007

Why cass chose Lake Geneva

this home is not priced like many of the rentals on the larger lakes and has an optional 2br cottage next door to rent for additional space. Our smaller lake is less crowded and it is an easy commute to everything in lake Geneva without the price or traffic. there is a little restaurant/pub next door with a great family friendly menu. our community is a charming summer cottage community with many of the cottages owned by generations of families

What makes this house unique

2 miles of private HOA owned lakefront with 2 beaches. our lake has good fishing for bass, bluegill and northern pike, kids can catch catfish off the shore. my nephew won the largest fish contest a couple of years ago...his catfish was so big...he had to hold it with both hands!! we also are a golf cart friendly community. you can drive a golf cart on our roads and along the lake!! rentals available, ask owner

Very cozy place on a cold winter's day

  • 5 of 5

Four friends stayed here for two days while it was below zero outside. We used the gas fireplace to stay cozy and warm. This house was a great place for the four of us, plenty of comfortable seating, full kitchen, and comfy beds. We would stay here again.

I was hostess for my grandson's 9th Birthday. A party of 11 boys, 6 adults. Everyone immensely enjoyed ice fishing, sledding on lake, tubing, magic/illusionist show, aquatic/waterpark. The home is FABULOUS for large family getaways. Plenty of space. Well stocked kitchen utensils, towels, linen. It was a home away from home. Even better was the gracious home hostess (Cass) and husband. Cass very accommodating, informative and friendly. I highly recommend to book this home early if you're considering a stay in Lake Geneva and surrounding areas. I can only imagine, if we had this much fun in winter, Spring/Summer will be a Blast. We Had An Absolutely Wonderful Stay.

Great rental! Great location, responsive host

  • 4 of 5

We booked this property for a few days over the Thanksgiving holiday.

The property was clean and exactly as described. Everything was in working condition and the owner contacted us to be sure we had what we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and dining ware.

This house is not immaculate (carpets are worn in spots, dings/holes in walls), but it was plenty good enough for a family with kids. We'd stay here again! Another nice bonus was a small playground, just about a block away.

The only downside was the proximity to the bar next door. Especially around closing time, we were woken up by sounds several times. If you are a light sleeper, I'd bring earplugs.

Owner's Response: thank you for the review, I was a bit surprised for the comments about the worn carpet or holes/dings in the walls...or the bar/restaurant next door. After closely inspecting, I did notice some "dings" in the back hallway and lower area by the basement entry door, where there is much traffic that comes in and out, but after closely inspecting, I couldn't find any other areas where there were any holes or dings in the walls???. In regards to the "carpets worn in spots" there is an iron burn in the master closet (from a recent rental with a not so considerate family who placed my iron hot on the carpet face down) and a frayed portion on the first step where again there is a lot of traffic, I haven't replaced 1500 sq foot of carpet for the high traffic reason to date, but note that there is plans to being torn out in the spring and replaced with hard flooring due to the challenge of trying to keep up with the traffic. In regards to the bar/restaurant noise, thanksgiving weekend is one of a few holidays that is busy. Many of my guests come specifically to take advantage of the close proximity of the local bars and restaurants, and I get very few complaints about the noise except for when they have isolated events like on the thanksgiving holiday, or new years for example, our lakefront community is very busy in the summer with much noise at night, like fireworks or kids playing in the playground across the street. which is to be expected. My prices are much less than the mansions on the lake where there is not a close proximity to any businesses especially considering my home and cottage next door can accommodate up to 18 people, and most of my guests like the convenience of being able to get a great pizza or food or watch one of many sports games on their TV's.
