Photos and Description of the McFarland vacation house rental

Beautifully Remodeled 3 Bed, 2 Bath On The Shores Of Lake Waubesa

This is the perfect lake house getaway. Our property offers the best off all worlds. We are on a 3000 acre, 35 foot deep lake with all the sporting activities you can hope for with tons of conservation land all around so you feel like you are up north. The good news is that we are 2 hours from Chicago, 70 mins from Milwaukee and most importantly only 6 miles to Capital and UW- Madison campus in downtown Madison. The entertainment and dining options are endless in a place like Madison. The house itself offers both the feel of a northwoods cabin, but with brand new super modern bathrooms, 2 year old kitchen and a newly finished basement.

Our house was built in the late 1800s as an ice house. It retains all of the charm of the original knotty pine walls and 100 year old hard wood floors. When we bought the place, we brought 21st century amenities to this 19th century gem. The property offers 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths including a huge soaking tub. The kitchen features granite counters, new appliances, a breakfast bar and all the modern convenience. There is a dining room off the kitchen which can seat as many as 10-12 for a dinner party. The living room has a cozy fireplace, a nice seating area, large flat screen tv with cable shuffleboard game and even a stand up video game for the kids (or grown up kids!) The first floor also has a brand new washer/ dryer and a full bath with the huge soaking tub.

Upstairs has all 3 bedrooms. A spacious master bedroom with a king sized bed, a charm filled 2nd bedroom with a queen bed and the kids room featuring a full over queen bunk bed and a twin with another trundle twin underneath. This versatile room can maximize capacity, or it can be a nice relaxing room for a couple.

The basement was just refinished and features a lovely seating area for the family with a TV. There is an arcade style bubble hockey game, a small sleeping area and a bar with seating for 4 and a refrigerator. The bar was a wonderful project where we reused the 100 year old wood counter top from the original counter top in the baitshop part of the icehouse. This house has so much history and we really did our best to accentuate it.

The enclosed sunroom has the hot tub with amazing views of the sunsets and the lake. There is a lakeside deck and fire pit in the yard as well as a nice long pier which leads to perfect sandy bottom swimming. There is an oversize BBQ grill and a basketball hoop along side of the house.

You can trailer your boat to the nearby public boat launch about 1.5 miles away. The fishing is fantastic, and as the least congested of the Madison chain. Lake Waubesa is an amazing lake that you will remember for years to come.
