Overview

Lake Wisconsin Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4+)

Unit 4 is perched amongst a canopy of oak and birch trees - you can stand on the balcony, reach out, and touch leaves and branches over 2-stories from the ground! Unit 4 is one of eight condominiums in a building nestled amongst a mature birch/oak forest with views over the Lake Wisconsin valley. Casual, whimsical, bright furnishing. Italian ceramic floor in bath and kitchen. Woodburning stove insert in the original, beautiful, stone fireplace. Small firepit outside for quiet summer/fall eves; or hearty-folks roasting s'mores in winter.

Lovely, oiled-teakwood laminate floors LR and Hall - carpeted bedrooms. You may find yourself resting on a pillowcase embroidered by my Cornish grandmother; or snuggled under a quilt made of squares of men's suit material; or find pencil drawings sent to Cornwall from the trenches of WWI...poke about...little surprises all over.

AND...and whole bass fiddle case of books!

Lots of wildlife - deer, turkey, raccoon, owl, and birds of all sorts fly over or walk through these remarkable surrounds. Marvelous earthrise and earthsets. I think the trees up here talk.

Parfrey's Glen official entrance is a 20-minute walk away. Devil's Lake is a 10-minute ride. Devil's Head Ski/Golf Resort is 200 yards down Bluff Road. Quaint Merrimac FREE ferry (seasonal). Cascade Mountain Ski/Snowboarding or Wollersheim Winery/Sauk City - 20-minute ride. Attraction notebook available in unit.

Plenty of QUIET. Noise restriction after 11p. You could write your book here! Remarkable views. Friendly condo neighbors.

Keywords: Condominium - Rocky Glen is about 200 yards up Bluff Road and on the opposite side of the entrance to Devil's Head Ski and Golf Resort

About Lesleigh

Comfy in the living room - fireplace blazing nearby and watching something wonderful on PBS...probably the Dicken's series...what teriffic tear-jerkers!

Lesleigh purchased this condo in 1999

Why Lesleigh chose Lake Wisconsin

How could I NOT have fallen in love with this place!? (I didn't mean to...it was a first project for me/my chef brother.) Although not a skiier or golfer, I AM a walker and I just step out the door and I'm nearly in the woods...AND from the balcony I can touch the nearby oak tree high, high up. Only squirrels or cranes get a better view.

What makes this condo unique

Peace - to watch the trees 'converse' with each other - the neverending changes framed by each window to the forest - the very occasional concert (Los Lobos a several several years ago) or fireworks from Devil's Head Resort on New Year's Eve - sitting around the firepit on a summer or fall evening - the water from a quartzite well in the basement (it bypasses the water softening system otherwise required for the building) - staying up the nights male owls joust in the air above our parking lot (I always think of the Quiddich field from Harry Potter.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

This amazing building is 3 stories high in total, but only 2 stories high in any one place. There are 4 bays consisting of two condos, one atop another. Each bay juts out and/or into the bluff and forest. Wonderful design!...and it is a wonderful healing place. We hope you enjoy sharing the magic up here.

Renewal at Rocky Glen

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely fell in love with the setting, nestled among the trees, creating a peaceful environment. The outdoor views plus the fireplace enticed us to eat in. We treated ourselves to Wisconsin cheese and sausage we picked up at Carr Valley Cheese, and the most delicious veggies we found at the Baraboo farmers market. We got in our planned hiking in Devil's Lake, but found so much more to enjoy in the area.

Owner's Response: Renewal. What a great word to hear! So glad to add that to the happy/calm/ahhh! residue remaining here. Thank you.

They visited just when the colors began to percolate...Colors now are settling down to a theme of rich, nearly liquid, gold/yellow.

Wonderful hideaway!

  • 5 of 5
The owner is a very nice person who wants people to enjoy her house in nature. The house is nestled in trees and very close to Devil's Lake. It is a short drive to town for other recreation.

Owner's Response: It was fun to be hosting people who knew so much, so affectionately, about these bluffs. Frankly, it's easy to feel (maybe BE) "nice" in this setting...personally, I think that's what everyone who stays here can come away with: That somehow, 'things' are 'nicer' having stayed.

40th Anniversary get away

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed out time at your awesome condo. Everything we needed, and more, was provided. Love how you have it decorated. Thank you for all your tips on things to do, especially Ever, Ever Land with all of Dr. Evermore's creations. Your condo was a wonderful place to celebrate our 40th anniversary weekend, but I could certainly see staying for much longer. A perfect place for families and/or 2 couples. Plenty of room, both in and out. A good location to Merrimac, Baraboo, Praire du Sak and Sauk City. Would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: To be chosen for a celebration such as this was a delight! Selfishly, it adds to a sort of residue of good times and sense of renewal up here when the folks who generated them return home. Gentle celebrations like this are most welcomed...!

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our time at Rocky Glen. We had a small window of time between work schedules that allowed our family to get together. The location was perfect. It was close to Devil's Lake where we wanted to kayak and hike. The condo was VERY comfortable. We especially liked the comfortable furniture in the the living area and the beautiful views into the trees. The kitchen supplied everything we needed and the adornments of the unit made you feel you were at home rather than in a rental unit. Thank you for sharing you home with us.

Owner's Response: Those "little windows" for refreshing and renewing matter, so it is especially nice to know that you made Rocky Glen one of those portals in time. Thank you.

another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time we have stayed in Lesleigh's home. So comfortable and peaceful. New furniture made it so "comfy" we had difficulty leaving to do all the things we were in the area to do.
Looking forward to this next year. No longer consider staying elsewhere.
