My place is close to Oshkosh WI, on the water . You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the neighborhood, the quiet haven with fishing, swimming, boating, hiking, lots of nature. Good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids). EAA week: Rent is FIRM at $200 per night minimum of six nights. EAA is July 21- 30 we are 15 mins away. Our 300 sq foot workshop is available for your scrapbook/quilters/crafters bible study weekend too. Seats 12 /8 comfortable if crafting.

The space
Quiet Riverside setting. Perfect for fishing, boating, walking, kayaking...campfires. We are 15 minutes from Oshkosh which hosts many conventions and activities such as EAA Airventure, Country USA and LifeFest. Nice waterfront - very relaxing. 35' seawall for boat parking. Launch from Omro or Eureka either launch is about two miles. Cottage is nestled in the middle of Ferry Lane - full of weekend hunting/fishing cottages. Prior owners lived here year round but we see this as more of a May-October get away! The house is well loved (so don't expect to find NEW appliances and fixtures.) The plumbing, water heater and necessities are well maintained for your visit. Towels and linens are freshly laundered for your use. Space is right on the river - so there will be some bugs - we have absolutely no control over this so if you cannot tolerate a dead fly - DO NOT BOOK THIS SPACE!
There is a firepit, charcoal grill and outdoor seating too. At check-in a security deposit of $500 or 1/2 rent (which ever is larger) will be required as Airbnb "security deposit" is a hoax. Your check will be torn up at checkout if no damages. If damages occur; repairs will be taken from your deposit and the remainder returned to you asap. Most renters have not been a problem but there is a bad apple in every bunch and to have a $288 A/C unit stolen from us and have no recourse/renter paying $0 as Airbnb does not stand behind hosts - this is our only option going forward. We welcome your well-behaved dog, but please pick up after it and no dogs on the furniture! Thanks for your co-operation.

Guest access
House, property 125' riverfront access x 900' deep marsh/fields, etc.
seawall, swimming, bring your own boat/kayak, canoe or rent one in town.
Firepit available/charcoal grill and waterside seating. Crafter's workshop available for scrapbook weekends....please inquire as this has additional space so additional pricing! Workshop access otherwise is not included.

Other things to note
Artesian water w/ 90 gals of tanks. Water is good, you just can't take an hour long shower and expect the water to keep coming.

Quiet. A few full time residents but mostly weekend residents. Most residents are into fishing and campfires...expect to be invited over as everyone is friendly!

Partially retired I love meeting people and doing more than is expected. I craft, cook, garden, travel and love sitting at my firepit with friends and a glass of wine.
