5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012 for a stay in June 2012
person found this review helpful

My wife and I were looking for a quiet, scenic place to stay for a couple weeks in June near my elderly father who lives in Waukesha, just west of Milwaukee. After considerable internet research we came upon “Heaven’s View – The Woods”. It looked like just what we needed, as it is an hour drive to Waukesha, as well as a number of other central Wisconsin towns. The place looked lovely –secluded, lakefront access, wildlife - with all the amenities at reasonable rates.

We called Dianna Williams, the proprietor. She could not have been more gracious and accomodating. We arranged a trip to take a look in October and met her equally kind husband, Tom, at that time. The place was just right for our needs as it was handicap accessible, perfect for my Dad and his walker.

We were constantly impressed with how well the cottage was equipped. Besides a large screen TV, wireless internet, a washing machine and other modern conveniences, there was a stock of grocery staples and household items too numerous to mention, some which we were even surprised to find available.

The two weeks that we stayed at the cottage went by in a flash. We were able to bring my dad (age 94) out from his retirement facility to sit around a fire, watch birds and other wildlife. A fledgling bald eagle roosted right outside our window for half a day. A deer ran through the yard. The chipmunks were real characters. We regularly watched a family of sand hill cranes just down the road. An owl hooted out in the woods each evening. We also saw a huge flock of penguins on Lake Sinissippi.

The location was perfect for a series of day trips, as we enjoy tranquility but do not sit around much. We went to Horicon marsh and rode bikes (kindly provided by the Williams), visited the Air Museum in Oshkosh, saw the Circus World Museum in Baraboo, hiked around Mirror Lake, saw the Forevertron (largest folk art sculpture in the world?), went to the Walleye Weekend festival in Fond du Lac, and explored antique stores and great architecture in many of the small, incredibly trim towns in the vicinity. These places were easy trips through wonderful Wisconsin rolling hills. Both nature and culture are available within an hour drive in any direction.

All of this was enjoyed with the luck of perfect weather – 50’s in the evening and 70s in the day. My only disappointment was that I didn’t get to use my electric “Bug Zapper,” since the Wisconsin insects were kind enough to wait out our stay.
