View the brilliant changing colors of the seasons, vast wildlife, magical sunsets, and experience the diverse cultural events nearby which are plentiful. This lovely waterfront, freshly decorated cottage is designed for your comfort and rests on the bay. Glorious sunsets are show-cased and fully viewed from the large deck pier, screened porch, sunroom, kitchen, living dining room, bath, and bedroom all overlooking a bay. This professionally decorated, fully furnished two bedroom home consists of 1 1/2 baths, three-seasoned sunroom, and large screened-in porch. A fully equipped kitchen and laundry room with washer/dryer are provided. In addition our cabin-like three season room provides a wonderful up north feel! It's a very comfortable home situated on a serene setting just steps from the water overlooking the bay. Off street parking is included. Our vacation home has gas heat with central air. We have Eagles, Blue Herons, Cranes, Egrets, Swans, Pelicans, Mallards, Canadian Geese that all visit seasonally! Painted turtles sun on the logs in our bay and large frogs frolic along the top of the water. With the cottage situated roughly 5 miles north of the intimate yet entertaining downtown Beloit, where our main street is ranked in Wisconsin's top 10, you may have great access to many options this area has to offer. One morning you may venture into town to walk the Beloit College campus, wander into several of the boutique storefronts, and end at a family run café. With Beloit known as a supper club destination, there are also many dinner options. You may also chose to take advantage of the large screened-in back porch while soaking in the vibrant sunsets right in your own cottage vacation home. The visit will allow you to feel recharged and grateful for the remarkable stay enjoyed. Activities on the Rock engage kayaking, fishing, bird watching, hiking, boating, grilling, ice skating, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and much more. We provide complimentary use of a canoe for you to enjoy and explore the calm waters. While certainly benefitting from its proximity to Chicago (90 miles), Madison (50) and Milwaukee (70), the city boasts its own array of distinguishing features. Whether visiting the Beloit College (and one of its two museums) or coming to town for the Farmer's Market, Beloit International Film Festival, or wanting to enjoy recreational activities on the mighty Rock, or participate many other local attractions, you are sure to have a pleasurable time!More
