This place is so awesome. Chris is a phenomenal host and thought of everything, even a totally unnecessary but so sweet birthday present for me since she knew I was celebrating my 30th at the house that weekend. Communication was amazing, and my guests loved the accommodations. This place is like a museum but not one where you're terrified of breaking anything. There are little collections in nearly every corner as well as practical items to actually use.
I slept great in the master bedroom and used the hot tub every day for a little escape. So luxurious! We cooked meals for everyone each day and didn't find the kitchen lacking in terms of appliances or dishes at all. The living room was well stocked with blankets and firewood and pillows, making is so extremely cozy. The tavern downstairs was even cooler than I had imagined, seriously! You really feel like you're in a classic Wisconsin bar, and I recommend getting a friend to play bartender and mix you drinks from the other side.
My only advise is to bring some ear plugs for whoever is sleeping in the loft and bunk bed rooms, since they are pretty open to the rest of the house and can be troublesome for light sleepers who tucker out while others are still enjoying the main living area and fireplace.
I definitely plan on renting this home again someday--maybe for my 40th! Thank you, Chris!!
