“Very pleased, I would recommend Cottage Keeper to others” Larry G. Oak Creek, WI

Arbor Shores

We loved our week at Arbor Shores…. Great home, great location, great beach! (Access to the lake was definitely a plus on this home). Overall a great property and I wouldn’t hesitate to rent it again in the future. Thanks again! – Darlene B, Racine WI

Enjoyed the holiday weekend at Arbor Shores. We did a full day pontoon boat rental on Saturday from Barnum Bay Marina. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and a nice view of the lake. we had all we needed in the home for a comfortable visit and plenty of room for 10 adults. – Michael H, Rolling Meadows IL

Celtic Lodge

Celtic Lodge was a perfect location for a vacation. Because of small children, the swimming area was very safe and small enough to manage everyone in the water. The cabin was spacious with plenty of room and was very clean upon arrival. I found the rental company to be very accommodating and made it easy to check-in as well as checking back to see if there were any problems. All in all, a great rental experience for our family. – Dick B, Minot ND

We had a great time and the house was perfect for the kids.  They loved the water, the beach, and the fish.  So fun having a private beach.  I think they gained a lot of confidence in the water. – Cindy B, Belgium WI

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Celtic Lodge. It was spacious and fit all the needs of the participants. It had all the amenities that an individuals’ home has and possibly more. The children enjoyed the man made lake. It was easy to supervisor them all day but also gave the adults time to visit with each other. We have stayed their multiple years and plan to stay again if available. – Dick B, Minot ND

Eagle Bay

We loved the house, lots of space for everyone to have their own space. Nice to have the two docks for ski boat and small fishing boat, loved the sandy bottom of the water. – Shelly K, Waverly WI

Thanks for the great stay. The house met all our expectations. Looking forward to next year. – Duane B, Woodbury MN

Lots of ‘living’ space downstairs and chairs. Great decor. No odors. Everything was very clean, lots of pots/pans/dishes/kitchen supplies. Good mattresses, and nice pillows. Everything very well kept. Loved the large deck. They do spray for mosquitoes but still bring spray b/c its hard to avoid them. A couple of upstairs rooms are small but 2 bathrooms are good sized. Master suite is large & gorgeous! We plan to return for a family reunion next year! – L0ve2Escape, Chicago

We enjoyed our week at Eagle Bay. The home is beautiful and very spacious, both inside and out, with plenty of room for the 10 adults and 4 children. We didn’t do much fishing but were able to catch a few which were promptly released. We appreciated the large protected pier and that we were able to keep the boat docked throughout the week. Communication with Cottage Keepers was outstanding, both before and during our stay. – Ruth K, Horicon WI

Beautiful home and perfect location. We will definitely be back. Our 2 grandsons loved it! – Tracy H, Newman IL

Fairway Trails

We have used Cottage Keepers for an annual golf trip for the past three to four years (for as long as we have known of them). Everything has worked out wonderfully! They have been very accommodating with the check in time as we have parties traveling in from various locations. They have listened to any issues or enhancements that we feel would be helpful to us or future renters. They worked with us to make our stay even more enjoyable the next time we return. Thus far there have been 12 different golfers that have joined us at one time or another. Every one of them has remarked that they would happily use or refer the services of Cottage Keepers in the future.  –  Scott H, Sheboygan WI

Fish Tale

Was a very relaxing stay. Being by the water and having our own dock was the best asset to this vacation. Beautiful and serene. – Ronald R, Mundelein IL

This is our second time staying there. We liked it so much the first time that we went back this year. The sunsets are amazing from the living room. – Joanie R, Itasca IL

We had a wonderful time at Fish Tail Cottage. The harbor just minutes away from the main lake was perfect for us as we wanted to do a lot of fishing. The ability to dock the boat right out front was very convenient. The home was very accommodating for the 5 of us. We were very impressed with how well kept and clean the cottage was. Felt just like home! Thanks for the great time! – Jenifer K, Mount Pleasant WI

Harbor View

We had such a great time, thank you so much. Ginny was extremely great to interact with. Very nice and friendly. The house is beautiful. Definitely will recommend this or any other home maintained by The Cottage Keeper! – Kathie W, Brooklyn Park MN

We were very pleased with the home we rented.  The accommodations were beyond our expectations!  It was very spacious and clean.  We had everything needed especially with 4 children under the age of 4.  Sleeping arrangements worked out very well!  A special thanks…for your assistance when we first arrived.  I felt you were always available if there were any needs.  We did have to call you once to find the life jackets and you promptly assisted in finding them.  The yard was great.  Gave the kids plenty of room to run around.  We did use the fire pit…and that was really fun. – Renee A, Antioch IL

Sanctuary Shores

We had an exceptional good time at Sanctuary Shores. The House was equipped too please all ages. The kids didn’t want to leave. They spent all their time in the loft playing or downstairs playing games. We had a beautiful campfire enjoying the solitude of the setting. The whole family would be more than happy to come back again. – Lois A, Cascade IA

Shimmering Bay

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

Shoreline Timbers

This was the first time we have rented a vacation home. It was fabulous on the lake and the view. The house went way beyond expectations. We will definitely rent from the Cottage Keeper in the future. It was a family vacation with our daughters and son in laws. – Robert M, Milton WI.

My husband and I have been searching for the perfect property to take our 4 children (ages 14, 15, 21, 25 and a newly added son in law.) over the past 6 years. We have used Cottage Keeper 5 of the last 6 years. They are very professional and have addressed issues with speed. This was by far the best property, with the perfect mix of features. The property is private and well laid out. The fire pit is situated very near the water. The screened in porch, proved to be a serious asset on a rainy day. The oversized table was a bonus at dinner time. Fishing was great right off the private dock. The water is about 6 feet deep just off the dock and dropped to 20 feet about 25 feet out. This is the home for us from now on. Thank you, Dave and Ginny. – Sherry & Mark, Shorewood, Illinois

Sunrise Cove

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week at Sunrise Cove. The size and configuration of the home was perfect for our whole family. There was only one night that every member of our family was able to be at the house and even though we had a body in every bed that night, the house didn’t seem crowded at all. The location on the cove was perfect for the grandchildren aged 2 to 15 to play in the shallow water. There were plenty of activities to occupy us all and with the addition of the boats, kayaks and pontoon that we brought, we all had a great stay. Overall the home was more than adequately furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils, cookware, etc. needed to make meals for a large crew. We ate every meal all week at the home so we made use of it all. At the end of the week we all decided that our first attempt at a family vacation together was a success and we will try it again next year. Thanks Sunrise Cove owners for sharing your home with us! – Karen B, Vesper WI

This was the most amazing cabin EVER. Owners were super generous and neighbors were kind and welcoming. We spent the weekend grilling, sitting outside next to the bonfire, drinking hot apple cider and playing games. There were 12 of us and we slept very comfortably. Will DEFINITELY rent again. – katecurtis2017

Sunset Bay

We had a lovely time in a lovely home. Our entire family enjoyed it and it fit our needs perfectly. The pool table, electronic darts and Pac Man in the lower level were definitely enjoyed!  Lots of fun, beautiful home, great views; a memory making weekend for all of us.  Thank you!  –  Mary W, Burlington WI

We’ve been renting from CK for the past 7 years staying at 6 different houses. Although we enjoyed and felt comfortable at each house, Sunset Bay was our FAVORITE and we plan on staying again next year. The house is in a great location, close to the big lake, is well laid out, accommodates families with 3 levels of living, a fantastic game room and wet bar and has all the necessary accouterments needed for an enjoyable stay. Also, it is close to stores, marina and places to get a cool drink. The end of a fun enjoyable day is sitting at the outside fire-pit, roasting marshmallows, drinking cold beverages and watching the sunset over the lake. – Bill & Joan P, Naperville IL

There’s actually room for 14 here, with 3 king beds and sleeping on all 3 levels – with ample room for 6 kids on the loft level. The lower level, with the game table (free, with about 48 games on it), the professional dart board game, pool table, bar (with frig) & big TV was GREAT… While we expected a TV on the main level, having one in the loft (kids DVDs) and one in the rec room (sports) worked out well. Visit Splash bar/restaurant right across the bay for good casual dining. I’d recommend this place, as it offers great value for the money. The sunsets ARE spectacular as well – Mink52, Waukesha, Wisconsin

Timber Ridge

Timber ridge had a lot of space and was well equipped. Over all it was very clean and well maintained. The view to the water is pretty but there is not a beach for water access. – Paula B, Whitefish Bay WI


Thank you for making our vacation very memorable and special. Both times we’ve stayed at your Valhalla location have been amazing, we never want to leave! Looking forward to hopefully going back this summer, we hadn’t gotten a chance to enjoy that lake due to both our stays being in March. So, we’re really looking forward to going for a swim.  –  Karen O, Chicago IL
