About Todd Dosch

We have been happily married almost 34 years and have two beautiful children that are also happily married and mean everything to us along with our beautiful and joyful Grandchildren! We grew up in Southwest Wisconsin but have been living in Minnesota for 30 years. We've been on East Rush Lake for 10 years and absolutely love it and have made numerous, wonderful friends on the lake. Friends and family mean the world to us and sharing time on the lake has created special memories we will cherish forever! We have hosted many July 4th family gatherings, and yearly college volleyball retreats (our daughter is a head coach) as well as family reunions. Friends and family are everything! We are also very involved in our church and chair the annual Lenten fish fries and co-chair the Church Fall Festival. Todd loves to hunt and fish and anything outdoors and I love the outdoors as well, walking, scrapbooking, bowling, golf and most of all, spending time with our children and their families and especially our beautiful grandchildren!

Todd Dosch purchased this house in 2005

Why Todd Dosch chose Rush City

We have always hoped to live on a lake and our dream came true 10 years ago. We both grew up in a small community and Rush City offers the same small community amenities. To wake up to the beautiful lake every morning is so refreshing and soothing and to retire at the end of the day to beautiful sunsets throughout the years have been treasured dearly. We couldn't ask for better neighbors and all the lake fun has been incredible. The fun boat tie ups together to end our weekends on the lake have been relaxing and we both enjoy fishing which is a nice time to get away in the boat and relax. We love to entertain and share what we have with others! The friendships we have made are priceless!

What makes this house unique

We love our home because we built it with lots of love and hard work. It is a dream come true to be able to wake up within the comforts of our beautiful handiwork overlooking a soothing, lakefront!

The property is even better than its VRBO listing!!

  • 5 of 5

We had three families with 10 people for the weekend. Plenty of room for all. Lots of games to play. The property is even better than the VRBO listing and working with Todd was a breeze. If you are looking for a wonderful getaway this could be the place.

A memorable family get-together that we’ll talk about for a long time!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Todd and Julie’s home for three days in mid-September when our youngest son got married at Creekside Farm east of Rush City. From the start Todd was extremely helpful and friendly. Several of us were able to meet him and tour the house prior to renting it. There were a total of 11 adults, one teen-ager, and 7 children 10 years old and under – (including three 2-year-olds). Each of four family units had a bedroom (which meant that the children had their own space if needed). The two grandparents and one uncle shared the other bedroom (which meant that we had our own space if needed…). The house lent itself to lots of conversation – once the kids were in bed the adults had the living, dining and kitchen area to ourselves and we stayed up late and took advantage of it. We cooked hot dogs and brats over the fire pit for lunch one day and enjoyed an all-day campfire on a chilly, windy afternoon. We used the Weber grill for supper one night and the kitchen was great for preparing and setting up food for 21+ people. (In addition to our group of nineteen we had the bride and groom and some other family guests for meals on Saturday and Sunday.) Two of the boys wanted to swim and, in spite of the chilly temperatures they did. (The beach may have been a little weedy but they didn’t care one bit). The only issue was my fault – I put a pasta salad in one of the garage refrigerators and I had turned the temp down too low and it froze. The consensus of our family was “THANK YOU! Todd and Julie for helping us make a memorable family get-together that we’ll talk about for a long time!”

Lovely property on the lake. Well kept home.

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great time. We had some problems with the refrigerator going out in the middle of the night and the electric stove doesn't get hot enough to do fajitas in a frying pan, but these were minor issues and quickly dealt with. We rented the pontoon boat one day and had a wonderful time on the lake. The boat is very nice. Would highly recommend this property.

Great Family Reunion Spot

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the property for a week in July for a family get together of nine people. We could very easily have had many more. The house was very large, and well equipped. The waterfront wasn't great for swimming, but we also rented the pontoon boat, and we enjoyed swimming from that in the middle of the lake. Fishing was excellent, mostly around the docks. And Todd (the owner) was very nice to deal with. Over all a great property.
