Shimmering Bay on Castle Rock Lake

Sunny and bright and in an excellent location on Castle Rock! With an open view of the lake, watch the sunlight dance across the waves, shimmering like diamonds. Shimmering Bay has many features that you’ll appreciate from your vacation rental… like the full set of windows facing the water, and the wrap-around deck leading to the expansive glass and screened three-season room with outdoor dining and seating for 12. The extended deck boasts the gas barbeque grill and deck furniture — great for entertaining, sun-bathing and enhancing your lake view. And gather around the campfire to complete your northwoods experience!

Bring your boat (or rent from a nearby marina) and dock it right in front of the home on the boat slip provided on the community pier. Located in a channel fairly protected from any high winds, you can leave your boat on the dock during your entire stay. This is also a good area for swimming.

Shimmering Bay has a full cathedral ceiling great room which allows for lakeviews even from the bedrooms and bath in the upper level. The great room and open dining room has a wet bar, mini-fridge, for your entertaining pleasures. A half bath sits off this room. The owners have designed this home for comfort and sensibility, with a private shower room just inside the main door to hose off after a day on the lake. The main level features the breakfast bar and kitchen, full bath, and 2 bedrooms. A lovely hand-crafted wrought iron railing leads up to the second level with 2 more bedrooms, mini loft and a full bath with whirlpool tub and windows overlooking the great room and lake. There is even an upper deck off the bedrooms where you can enjoy the peaceful wooded backyard view.

Enjoy the many beaches, lakeside restaurants, fishing and excellent boating on Castle Rock Lake. Bring your bikes, hiking shoes, snowmobiles, ATVs and golf clubs … for the many trails and championship golf courses in our area. Nearby attractions include the Necedah Wildlife Refuge (the largest in Wisconsin), Elroy Bike Trail, canoeing / kayaking the Wisconsin and Lemonwier River, gaming casinos … or take a day trip to the Frank Lloyd Wright center & House on the Rock. All this, and only 30 minutes from the Wisconsin Dells experience! Relaxation or exhilarating activities… the choice is yours!

Overnight docking of one boat allowed at the community pier.

Non-smoking unit… no pets allowed

The house was beautiful and having the boat docked at the house was very nice. In the mornings we could see out on the lake why it was called shimmering bay, as the Lake sparkled. This was our second year with Cottage keepers and have enjoyed the experience. We hope to book again next year. – Cheryl K, Milwaukee WI

The house was spacious and had all the things we needed to have a great vacation. We were thankful to have a boat to spend time on the water!  We enjoyed our stay! – Melissa S, Waukesha WI
