ROCKY GLEN CONDO - FOREST NEST IN THE BARABOO BLUFFS

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

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.

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

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.

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.)

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.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
What a great stay! As we sat in the living room...in the quiet drinking coffee...it was agreed this was SO much better than a hotel. The condo was clean and Lesleigh was wonderful to work with. We plan to visit again soon.

Owner's Response: Delighted that you 'heard' the silence...soaking in what's up here - The Quiet; subtle and ongoing conversations amongst our wild animal neighbors; and the magic of wind-inspired tree dancing - to say nothing of coffee-talk amongst friends finally relaxing. SO glad you will be coming back.

More "cottage" than "condo" - amazing retreat!

I fell in love with this condo! It has so much personality in the location, furnishings and decor. It's very roomy and comfortable and the location is wonderful. In a clearing in a forest, it feels very remote but there are great places to visit in every direction. We went someplace different every day and and never drove more than an hour. You can't go wrong if you choose this vacation home!

Great Base Camp

  • 5 of 5
We 4 sisters stayed here on our annual getaway. We used the condo as a base camp and each day went a different direction to see the sights. It's an hour or less to the Dells, Baraboo, Madison, Spring Green, Devil' Lake State Park, Mt Horeb and Mineral Point. The condo had everything we needed and the big chairs in the living room were so comfy we napped in them. We visited local restaurants, the Varsity Club in Merrimac and the Farm Kitchen in Baraboo. Both had great service, good food and reasonable prices. The condo has great décor and personal touches from the owner. It's in the country, very quiet, you can hear the birds sing.

Memorial Weekend Getaway

Wonderful hideaway amongst the treetops. We saw lots of birds and were close to great hiking and a short trip to Wollersheim Winery. Fun decor, too!

Owner's Response: These delightful (and apparently delighted) people left lots of lively, appreciating energy here...one even used my chef brother's handmade walking stick. First time, ever, anyone asked to use it. Cool!
