Short Description

Lakefront home on Lake Petenwell


Looking for the perfect retreat for your extended family ... with plenty of space to enjoy your vacation on the waterfront? Look no further! Sunrise Cove is located in Big Bay on the west side of Petenwell Lake, the 2nd largest inland lake in Wisconsin with 23,000 acres. With a full deck facing the lake, you’ll find this the perfect spotto sip your morning cup of coffee, take in the beauty of the lake as the sun begins
to rise, and contemplate the marvel of nature.

Sunrise Cove has 240' of shoreline … with 2 acres of pines and woods and yard for the privacy and peace you seek. Features a sandy cove in front of the home (access via ladder from pier next door), and a boat launch and small private beach just up the road. Boats may be anchored in the cove during the day— to be removed each night. This home sits on an excellent location of the lake — near Wilderness Park. Enjoy a game of sand volleyball or horseshoes. Star gaze and gather around the warmth of the groomed campfire pit.

Sunrise Cove is 3500 sq' ... this large home consists of 7 bedrooms, 3 baths, open living room / dining room (extra large dining room table), stone fireplace/ entertainment area, kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and extra den area in lower level overlooking the lake. Ceramic & brick tile in the great room with carpeting in the center, and central air. There are two oversized decks ... one spanning the entire lakeside of the home, and one overlooking the front drive/woods. The master bedroom (facing the lake) has a master bath; another bath off the main living area; and the lower level bedrooms and living quarters share a large bath, laundry area and a home office. Truly a beautiful home … with trapezoid windows and French doors which expand the entire living room overlooking the lake! Sunrise Cove is built on the open concept with cathedral ceiling in the living room, dining room and kitchen as one large room.

Sunrise Cove sleeps up to 16, to accommodate larger family gatherings. Close to attractions such as the Necedah Wildlife Refuge (largest in Wisconsin), beaches, county festivals, events, golfing, boating, trails, HoChunk Casino (Nekoosa) … and approx 45 minutes to the WI Dells!

Sunrise Cove - July2023
We just left Sunrise Cove last week, and loved our week there. We love the space, being our second year there, and this year appreciated the easier access to the cove for kayaks and paddleboards! Always love the ample games/puzzles. Also, we felt you should know a few things about Sunrise Cove: - Both refrigerators need to have their water filters replaced, and the one on the exterior wall isn't cooling enough - consistently reading at 58 degrees, despite our attempts to reduce it. - The grill igniter doesn't work and gas tank shut off sticks significantly - needed a wrench to close it (on the working grill; the other one didn't have a tank) - The upstairs common bathroom shower could really use a bath mat for safety - very slippery for my elderly mom - Directions for the living room fan/light would be helpful; we couldn't figure out how to operate the light without the fan or vice versa, or run the fan at different speeds. - There was a wooden framed photo in the master bathroom that was knocked off the wall and broke. We attempted to fix it, but were unable to. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks again for a wonderful week! ***Thank you for choosing to stay with Cottage Keeper. We appreciate your feedback! We will have our maintenance team address grill ignitor and provide a bath mat. I will let homeowners know of the little mishap with the picture, we appreciate your honestly. We do appreciate your business and hope to see you next summer!***

The house was great for having the whole family together. Two of the things that need attention are the windows are filthy and the AC needs maintenance. Even though we turned the air-conditioner on and let it run all night we would have it set at 74, 24 hours, and the house would warm up to 79 by 3pm. We had drapes ,windows and doors closed just we do at our homes. Phil. The rate is not the rate we would give our experience I was required we d yo pick a rate to send my comments. Phil. **Thank you for choosing to stay with Cottage Keeper and we appreciate your feedback! All concerns and suggestions are discussed with our maintenance team and home owner. The A/C has been serviced and we hired a professional window cleaning company so everyone can now enjoy the view! Thank you again for your business and we hope to see you next year!***

Nice, but….
The house is spacious and comfortable and easily sleeps a family of 18. However, there was no space in the kitchen cupboards for any of the food we brought. I spent most of Friday evening sorting thru the cupboards to make room. There were many takeout dishes haphazardly filling most of the tall cupboard left of the stove. There were 2 refrigerators in the kitchen rather than one in the basement as we’d been told. The one by the window didn’t work as it should have but we kept some beverages in it. It was very noisy. My other complaint is about access to the lake. The tiny path nearest the house is very difficult passage for small children and older adults. It seems that this could be improved without a great deal of trouble or money. The older kids had a great time swimming off the dock. The lower patio is lovely and the kids had a great time playing volleyball in the sand. This could be a five star place with a few corrections.

This was the most amazing cabin EVER. Owners were super generous and neighbors were kind and welcoming. We spent the weekend grilling, sitting outside next to the bonfire, drinking hot apple cider and playing games.Will DEFINITELY rent again.

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week at Sunrise Cove. The size and configuration of the home was perfect for our whole family. We all decided that our first attempt at a family vacation together was a success and we will try it again next year. **We are so happy to hear you loved this house as much as we do! Thank you for choosing to stay with Cottage Keeper***
