PARADISE AT CASTLE ROCK

Arkdale Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8-12)

Walk in to our cedar trimmed cabin and immediately smell the aromatic pleasure of the northwoods.

Leave the bags at the front door, grab your suit and plunge into the warm depths of Castle Rock Lake just steps away. After a refreshing dip, stick a few logs in the outdoor sauna, have a beverage and melt away in the sauna.

The kids will climb the steps to their personal hideaway and dream of castles and kings in the treehouse. Put the steaks on the grill and enjoy the panoramic sunset from the cobblestone patio. After dinner, nestle in around the campfire, tell ghost stories to your guests, roast marahmallows and enjoy the sun as it gently falls from into the lake.

As you saunter off to sleep in the king size bed, listen to the symphony of the northwoods.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We arrived an was very pleased to discover the outdoor sauna. It is a classic. Wood burning---felt really authentic. Bedrooms were spacious. Cedar Cedar walls and decor make it feel like a true cabin. Thanks to the hot Memorial day weekend, the kids enjoyed the sand bottom area in front of the cabin. Lots of good memories. We would recommend.

I am Marshall, WI resident and have been vacationing at Castle Rock for over 40 years. Please make my family's home your vacation destiny and enjoy it.

Gerald Canon purchased this cottage in 2004

We have vacationed at Castle Rock for over 40 years. My family summer, family vacations was enjoying the various campgrounds surrounding Castle Rock. The many days spent swimming, boating, biking, fishing and hiking are memories cherished by me. As I married and had children of my own, I wanted them to experience similar experience. Kids should know the freedoms the outdoors offer.

An adult become a child while vacationing at Castle Rock. The simple enjoyment of sitting around a crackling, outdoor fire or swimming brings out the peacefulness that we all should feel. Our home is situated on the east side of Castle Rock. The sunsets are panoramic. Kids and adults alike enjoy swimming into the warm and sand bottomed waters of Castle Rock Lake. We have a competitive foosball table for evening or rainy day enjoyment. The smell of the cedar walls and northwoods decor make you feel like Jeremiah Johnson. It is quite often that you will see deer grazing from the living room. Send the kids out back to enjoy the 10' high treehouse while you cook the steaks on our cobblestone patio. After the go to rest in the loft, enjoy a quick sauna in our wood burning sauna.

GREAT TIME HAD BY ALL

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of this cabin don't do it justice. It's immaculate and well appointed. We were two families coming together (1/2 group coming from Mpls, 1/2 from Chicago) and this was the perfect meeting spot. We burned through tons of firewood in both the indoor fireplace and outdoor firepit. We ended up having a fooseball competition and played hours of cards. The sleeping arrangments were ideal --all 4 kids in the room with the bunk beds, and the parent's each got their own room.

We took long walks along the lakefront and met a few of the neigbors.We will be back!

NICE GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
A group of us had a reunion this last weekend after being spread out over the years. We all met at 'Paradise at Castle Rock' and had a fantastic weekend. The house held all of us with no problems - everyone had a spot to sleep. The house has a real nice country feel and was set up so we had plenty of room for all of us.
The fire pit is awesome and watching the sunsets were beautiful. It was just perfect!
The only negative was the access to the lake as one of the guys wanted to do some fishing from shore. But that was not really why we were there so it did not affect our weekend at all.
This house/cabin more than met our expectations. Fully equipped and clean and we were all very happy.

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I took our family on vacation to Castle Rock Lake in the summer of 2011. We stayed at a cabin in Dellwood, owned by Gerald Canon. The cabin is more like a house. Upon arriving, everything was intact as expected. The front yard has a large patio area with an in-ground fire pit and hardwood already cut & stacked for easy access. At the end of the long driveway were several large garbage cans so we did not have to worry about removing our garbage. The large back yard has a tall fence for safety and peace of mind. The back yard offers a playground atmosphere for the younger kids, including a trampoline, tree house, swing set, etc. The interior offers a large open concept with comfortable furniture in the living room including 2, high-quality sofas and a recliner easy chair. The interior is rustic to say the least; an authentic northwoods feel and fully decorated. The kitchen area is clean and modern including a oven/stove, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, and a bottled water dispenser. There is a large kitchen table in the dining room area able to accommodate at least 8. The large restroom offers a cabin feel but fully functional like a regular house including a bathtub/shower combination, washer & dryer, and a cabinet full of clean towels and washcloths. The cabin has 3 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a loft cleverly built-in, perfect for the younger kids. All of the bedrooms are capable of sleeping several people. There is a deck with a gas grill right off the kitchen for easy access while cooking out. Furthermore, there are multiple small refrigerators outside to store beverages. There is a custom-made wood-burning sauna and a Jacuzzi-type spa for the adults and older children. It is a 30 sec. walk to the private pier on the lake which included access to his pontoon boat. The children enjoyed playing in the water & sand at the pier. The pontoon also gave us water access to several fun places on the lake including Splash which is only minutes away. We also enjoyed having lunch and taking in music and several other venues on the lake. We had access to fishing and viewing a bald eagle caring for its young in its huge nest. When we arrived, the cabin was clean and orderly. The linens and towels were all freshly laundered and the beds were made-just like checking into a hotel. My wife has owned a cleaning business for 17 years and very picky about cleanliness. The cabin exceeded our expectations.

DISAPPOINTED!

  • 1 of 5
The cabin was extremely dirty. There were so many flies inside the cabin, it was unbearable. This was due to the fact that the screen doors would not close completely and they had holes in them.

The pictures are misleading as to the amount of yard space there is. Much smaller than I anticipated.

Water pressure was very weak. Just a trickle out of sinks and shower.

I would not go back!

Owner's Response: I am very disappointed in this review. They arrived early efore check in time and before the cleaning crew arrived. The cleaning crew worked around the tenants as much as possible. We have a keypad for the door and give out lock codes to families as before they arrive. I don't know how to respond to the pictures are misleading-"a picture is worth a 1000 words" is the old saying. They may no be used to living in a house with a well pump-it does not always have the same pressure as city water but the pump is new as of 2011 and works within manufacturer guidelines.

GREAT GETAWAY FOR WEEKEND OR MORE!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cabin for a get together amongst a group of friends from the Twin Cities, Milwaukee, Madison and Chicago. It was centrally located, as the longest anyone drove was four hours. The ten of us all had a place to sleep, as there are seven beds and numerous couches. We had a lot of fun as there was a stereo, TV, foosball table and full kitchen indoors. Outside there was a fire pit in the front yard we used every night. There is a clear view of the lake from the fire pit, so it was very relaxing and enjoyable. I highly recommend!

SUMMER VISIT TO PARADISE AT CASTLE ROCK

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Paradise at Castle Rock last summer. We will re-visit this year again. The cabin had plenty of beds. My kids enjoyed the loft bedroom and the tree house in the backyard. Swimming was a short walk and was all sand bottom. We motored our boat off of the pier while we ate and then jumped in for a short ride to the many bars and private beaches on the lake. We actually saw 5 deer in the grassy area right from the living room every day we were there. I would recommend vacationing there.

Owner's Response: We cannot allow renters to use boat pier. We have rented a boat slip at Miahael's Landing 3/4 mile from home which allows tenants to keep boat in water. Sorry for the inconvenience.
