This property gave us a private and peaceful honeymoon!! We loved the unique setting of this beautiful home and all the special extras it had to offer. My husband and I spent the evenings by the fire pit, the days in the yard, and used the wireless internet when it rained. We used the grill and the kitchen, which was stocked with anything you might need to cook with and/or entertain. After discovering the great taste of fresh coffee we are now going to purchase a coffee bean grinder as we fell in love with the one provided by the owners! That’s just an example of the little extras that made our stay special.
It was close to Fall when we visited and the scenery was beautiful! The leaves were turning and the seclusion of the property really relaxed us from the chaos of the wedding. The property is at pretty much the end of a cul-de-sac, offering a feeling of being secluded from every day stress and potential tourists. Keeping that in mind, however, the house is probably 10 minutes from Rice Lake, where anything you might need is at hand. We went out to dinner at Drag’s Restaurant in Rice Lake, among others, which offered a little ambiance with great service and phenomenal pizza! We also went shopping at the mall and visited the quaint down town area where there are cute shops, restaurants and taverns the locals hang at.
The yard is quite large and would be great for keeping the kids busy. We took some really neat pictures by the tree house! The house is equipped to hold many more as there are multiple bedrooms, probably really nice for a family with kids or a girls’ weekend. Bedrooms and bathrooms included everything you need on your vacation, plus those little extras you may have forgotten about. I like to exercise when vacationing and was even able to record a fitness show on their TiVo! We took scenic walks as well and walked along the Red Cedar River Trail, which was beautiful and romantic, less than 15 minutes from the house. The lake view was beautiful and the acreage was a perfect backdrop for vacation photos. Home owners were easy to work with and very helpful. The home itself is beautiful with eclectic décor that is quite welcoming and comfortable. We hope to visit again for anniversary weekends. Would highly recommend to anyone hoping for a Northern retreat away from the noise and hassle of everyday life. This property is equipped with all the amenities of staying with friends or family plus geese, crickets and no uninvited guests!
