Lake Wisconsin Cottage is like owning your own lake cottage. It's the perfect size for a small family or a couple. Enjoy a friendly residential neighborhood, fabulous sunsets, a big yard, and your own private pier. Water activities, nature, hiking, boating, fishing, relaxation, and lots of day-trips are among the many things to do. Read a book on your outdoor patio, visit area restaurants, or cook your own meal in our full kitchen. Whatever you choose, you can return at the end of the day to your own comfortable and extremely clean abode.

Ross and Connie Ellis Ament are originally from Yorkville, Illinois. Having searched several lake communities for a vacation home, we bought our "Lake House" (next door to Lake Wisconsin Cottage) in the year 2000. Our purchase of that home was made in the winter...never even having seen the place without snow! When the snow melted, we discovered a place that we have fallen in love with. The lake, nature, and the proximity to culture in Madison and other surrounding areas make it truly unique!

In December, 2006, we purchased the little cottage next door and Lake Wisconsin Cottage, LLC was created. The character of our residential lakefront neighborhood is one of friendliness, relaxation and appreciation of nature. Vacationers and permanent residents mix together wonderfully, all focused on enjoying the lake, the views, and the environment. Yet, there is so much to do within a close drive that we never run out of fun and interesting activities!

Ross's background is in the Tourism Industry, promoting Canadian, Illinois, and Wisconsin tourism products through liaison with Associations. He currently has his own business, Ament Associates Inc., which does Tourism, Agritourism, and Association Consulting.

Connie has worked in the public health and human services fields for many years. She has been the primary vacation-planner of the family and knows a great place when she sees it. Lake Wisconsin Cottage, LLC is our shared vision come true!

Our goal is to offer folks a memorable place to that will allow time to savor nature, while providing activities galore if you desire. Our experience is that, while summer is spectacular at the Lake, all seasons are beautiful and unforgettable. Visit Lake Wisconsin Cottage and perhaps you will fall in love, too!
