General Notes

  • Our houses' interiors are no-smoking zones.
  • We provide WiFi internet connections.
  • Use of auxiliary lodging facilities such as tents, trailers, etc. requires permission.
  • Lakme properties are all private homes, on a family compound, and tenants should respect them as such.

Some Notes on Rural Plumbing

  • You won't notice any differences from conventional plumbing, but note that we rely on wells for freshwater, and utilize septic tanks for waste water disposal. Please don't flush anything but TP and organic wastes down the toilets, and avoid colored tissues.
  • Our houses have a washer and a dryer in laundry rooms.
  • Our hard water is conditioned by water softeners. 

Linens

  • Bed linens and bath towels are furnished.
  • Please provide your own beach towels.

Food and Drink

  • Our well water is inspected yearly, and certified as potable.
  • Our kitchens have an oven, a stove, a microwave, and are stocked with utensils and cooking implements.
  • The Wisconsin State Health Department does not allow us to keep any foodstuffs on site. Please remember to bring everything that you will need to eat and cook --even salt and pepper!

Our Beach and Boating

  • The Main Beach is located centrally on the property, at the foot of the Wilson House's sloping lawn.
  • Tenants are welcome to bring their own hand-launchable boats, and anchor them off our shoreline. Temporary courtesy tie-ups to our shallow-draft roll-in dock are on a  first-come basis after Lakme's vessels. We assume no liability for renter's or guest's vessels. Because of insurance regulations, the Lakme Club's boats are not available for general use.

Fires, Fireworks, and Firearms

  • Outdoor fires require permission from Lakme's caretaker.
  • Please don't hunt or use firearms on our property. Fishing is by barbless, catch-n-release WI DNR-policy, only.
  • Aerial and explosive fireworks are illegal in Wisconsin, hence we cannot allow their use. If you plan to use legal-fireworks (sparklers, etc.), please keep them well away from the woods and clean up all debris. (Note: The Island puts on an excellent Independence Day fireworks show at the ball park.)
