Castle Point (4th generation family owned) is a summer lake cabin style cottage from “yesteryear” with modern updates. It is one of the most nostalgic and unique properties on the Chain O’ Lakes, Waupaca WI. The cottage is very charming, spacious and comfortable. A wonderful rustic gem, built in 1920 by the late Sarah and Howard P. Castle of Barrington, Illinois. It has many nice features and items not offered by most lake rentals. Everyone loves the sleeping porch, great for an afternoon nap. The lake air and the “whispering” pine trees give for wonderful relaxation. The sleeping porch “seating area” has scenic views of the lake – the perfect spot for morning coffee or evening cocktails.

Additional features: big private yard (overlooking the lake) with fire pit, Weber grill, lawn chairs and picnic table. Large lakeside yard surrounded by woods.  Boat dock with an attached sun/swim/fishing dock. Spacious knotty pine kitchen with nice appliances.

Beasley Lake is a no-wake lake and is very popular for swimming and fishing. The shoreline is all woods and has beautiful mature vegetation. There is no “beach” on Beasley Lake. Our boat dock is set amongst the lily pads.  Long Lake, a ski lake, channels into Beasley. There are 22 spring-fed connecting lakes on the Chain. Besides water skiing, many enjoy spending the day on a pontoon boat going from lake to lake. The Upper Chain consists of five gorgeous-wilderness lakes and is perfect for canoeing and spotting wildlife. We are a stone’s throw from Beasley Creek that connects to the Upper Chain. Children love playing in the shallow creek.
