About Ottoman Lake

We've always wanted to own a little cottage on the Chain of Lakes. When this little property came up for sale in disrepair, we purchased it and spent this last year restoring it. We'd like to share our little retreat with others (though we live only 15 miles away)!

Ottoman Lake purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Ottoman Lake chose Waupaca

The quite, tranquil area and non-motorized lake was very inviting. While the footprint of the cottage is small it has a great layout and wonderful view of the lake. Our family always came this way in the summer to mini golf and for local pizza. This was always a great memory for our family as well as a dream to own a property that did not come true until 2015!

What makes this cottage unique

Two screen porches in one house is absolutely wonderful! Everything about this small home is easy living and peaceful.

Quiet and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at the cabin. We spent a lot of time sitting on the dock and kayaking in the lake. We saw a red tailed hawk, osprey, cranes, herons and lots of baby ducks on the lake. We went for bike rides to Hartman Creek Park, kayaked in nearby lakes and spent time on the chain in a rented pontoon boat. In the evenings we enjoyed a fire by the water and sitting in the screen-room. The house was very nice as others have mentioned. It had everything we needed and much more.

quiet lake with beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this beautiful, quiet cabin. The house was beautiful and nicely stocked with the essentials for a weeks stay. Fishing off of the dock was easy and without the few lily pads would have been absolutely perfect. We caught and released quite a few. The canoe, the kayak and the rowboat were a great touch and really added to our week. Kathy and Dan were great to meet us there and show us where all of the extras were. I appreciate a great host.

We will definitely go back!

Thanks Dan and Kathy

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just like the Chain of Lakes cottages I remembered as a kid, but updated with all the comforts and conveniences we didn’t have back then. The cottage sits on a dead end road, overlooking a quiet pretty no motor lake through a stand of minute drive from a couple big marinas on the larger chain of lakes, if you want to rent some sort of power raft and motor around the chain. The cottage isn’t lavish, but very comfortable, with a dock you can swim off, and rowboat and canoe. Everything you need for comfortable housekeeping, and plenty of lake views. Plenty of elbow room on two levels, and everything in the cottage and yard is kept up immaculately. The cottage is exactly the way I would want it it I owned it, and Rick and Cathy are great hosts.

As maybe an aside, it’s a year around cottage, and if I were a cross country skier, or ice fisherman, or into just about any kind of winter pursuit, I’d give it a serious look as a winter rental. Lots of outdoor stuff to do around there at that time of year, and also looks like a comfy place to just sit and read a book, and watch it snow. All around, if you’re looking for a lake cottage rental, I can’t think of a better one.

Great place on a quiet lake.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Ottman Lake house with another couple for an extended weekend in mid September. The quiet no motor lake was perfect for paddling and fishing in peace. The house was perfectly clean and very nicely refinished. The host were a joy to know. The weather cooperated and so did the fish to some extent.
