About Beth Goethel

My husband and I both grew up in Wisconsin and love all the four seasons bring. Our 4 children range in age from 21 to 14 and love every minute they can spend on the lake.

Beth Goethel purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Beth Goethel chose Friendship

We purchased this cottage while living on Castle Rock Lake full-time. We wanted to ensure we would have a place in the event we would have to relocate due to my husband's job. We had admired this cottage for years and were elated when we were able to purchase it. The location is fantastic and our kids would stay up all night fishing from the pier (their Dad too) if I let them. It is great walleye fishing right from the dock! The calm bay is perfect for a canoe, kayak or paddle boat and our kids love to paddle across to the gas station for ice cream in the summer. Now that we've moved away, we're so thankful we have this cottage to go back and stay connected to the area that our kids loved dearly growing up.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is conveniently located near Edgewater Marine and an improved boat launch. Because of the calm water and private pier, you can leave your boat docked overnight - protected from high waves - for the duration of your stay. The cottage is located on quiet road, perfect for your morning or evening strolls.

Great lake rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental for a family lake vacation. The cottage is roomy, well-equipped, and most importantly very clean. Location is excellent, as it is situated on a quiet channel but with direct access to the big lake. Owners are very accommodating and easy to reach. Lots to do and see in the general vicinity.

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Great location for fishing trip and family vacation. Kids had a blast playing in yard, fishing off dock, and having campfires. Boat launch was right across channel, real convenient for getting boat in. We kept our boat at the dock at the house. Channel is protected from main lake so no problems with waves. Overall a great trip

Party weekend with friends

  • 4 of 5

Likes: The cabin was clean. The private dock was not far from the firepit. The gas station and store were just across the harbor. The boat launch was a short drive and a very short boat ride. It included most of the things we were looking for. I enjoyed the faucet in the kitchen sink. The sprayer made doing dishes easier. There was lots of firewood on hand. The people in every direction seemed friendly. Lots of beaches and bars were very close by if going by boat.

Dislikes. The bathroom is strange. A ceiling fan???? really????? The lack of an exhaust fan made it so that everything in the bathroom got wet if you showered.We all felt the beds were too small and personally when I was sober I didn't find them very comfortable. What appeared to be a futon in the photo is not. It is just a couch.

Overall it was a fun trip. If you book here make sure to drive across the lake and check out the party on the backside of the state owned island. Lots of water games and fun there for anyone.

Fishing cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was a very comfortable and peaceful stay for myself and family. The house is tastefully furnished and decorated, and the surplus of linens, and the well stocked kitchen, really made it possible to enjoy it as a home away from home. I look forward to our next stay.

Located 30 minutes to Wisconsin Dells with water parks, attractions, festivals, outlet shopping and drive-in theater but just far enough away to sit back, relax and get away from the hustle and bustle. We feel the location is the best of both worlds, and we hope you do too!
