About Brian Gruthoff

I grew up in the Fox Cities on the water however have been residing in Boulder, CO since 1984. I purchased the home in 2004 as a second home. My girlfriend and I still have family there however with older children and their busy schedules we are not able to enjoy the property as much as we would like. I renovated the home myself when purchased and have a lot of blood, sweat and tears that have been put into the property. With new wood flooring throughout, drywall, paint and new kitchen I made it my own. It was professionally decorated to give it a cozy, charming lake house feel with elegance and warmth. We hope you enjoy the home as much as we do.

Brian Gruthoff purchased this house in 2004

The house exceeded my expectations

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in the house over Labor Day Weekend. We had multiple couples and a couple kids and were very comfortable. Everything was 'as advertised.' Hope we didn't use too much firewood for our campfires each night!!

Lake House Wedding Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family usually rents a house each year to provide time together. This year 2017 we were preparing for our daughters wedding and selected the property in Menasha. It was superb. the grounds eree beautiful, the house was well maitained and well stocked with dishes, linens and goodies - a nice touch was the welcome basket. Sitting out by the fire pit was perfect until the mosquitos came about 9:30 pm. We had ample time to visit with famiy and frends from all over the country - all were impressed with the lake house. we hosted our wedding rehearsal dinner on the grounds and people gave rave reviews. I would note to any protential renters that the photos on VRBO do not give the property justice - we travel extensively and rent often - this property makes it to the top of the list of our experiences. I should also mention the sporting equipment bikes, canoe, paddle boat, games and much more - top notch).
