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.

Nice cabin

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Paradise at Castle Rock July 18th-25th. I guess I did not ask enough questions and we were a bit disappointed that there was not swimming or fishing access across from the cabin down by the lake.There are docks but they are owned by the neighbors and you cannot walk on them. From the pictures and from the road you cannot see that the bank slopes down and there are just rocks and weeds in that particular area of the lake. Our grown children that came up for the weekend thought they were going to do some fishing but did not do any fishing. My husband and I stayed the whole week and did not find the fishing spots until the rest of our family had left. My husband and I don't really care about fishing, so we didn't do any anyway. We found Carlson's beach that is right down the street and Carlson's has a very pleasant restaurant across the street from the lake. But if we come back we know the ropes now. The cottage itself is very nice and comfortable. Our oldest daughter who is a cosmetologist and was born with the artistic, creative gene, said the cottage was nicer in person that it was in the pictures. There was nine of us adults and my 3 year old grandchild and we had plenty of room to sleep. I found the beds too hard for me but I slept on the love seat in the master bedroom and it was fine for me. As I said, our children and two of their spouses and my grandson only stayed for the weekend so my husband and I were alone Monday night to Friday morning. If you want absolute peace and quiet this is the place for you. All you hear is the birds and the wind in the pines. I am embarrassed to say it kind of made me nervous.During the day I was fine but at night I had a hard time sleeping with no one around but myself and my husband. The neighbours that have a home on the south side of the cabin came back late Thursday night and I actually slept better knowing someone else was on the street but us. My husband said I think there are bad guys on every street corner! But the cabin is very nicely decorated, comfortable, modern, and has just about everything you need. It was like a home away from home. My husband and I went on some day trips and it was nice to come back "home" to rest and cook out on the grill. We we went to Mauston and got some steaks and grilled them out and cooked some potatoes on the stove. It was fun! The water pressure was great in the shower and the water was nice and warm. We would go back. Bring your bicycles.

Misleading

  • 1 of 5
This cabin was nice to stay in, but the owner eludes to lake access in front of the cabin. All of the docks have surveillance and no trespassing signs. So we had to drive to this dinky beach filled with sticks and broken glass and the water was not worth swimming in. We weren't allowed to use the trampoline in the back yard and the washer/dryer was broken. It says it sleeps 12, but the beds were so uncomfortable that we had some sleep in a tent on a blow up mattress. I would not come back here.

Thoroughly disappointed

  • 1 of 5
I feel like I'm reading reviews about a completely different cabin. We were told someone had been there to clean, but there was evidence everywhere to suggest otherwise. We filled up the vaccume canister with dog hair and dirt, we wiped down the counters, and found evidence of moisture issues within an hour of being there. We ended up going home a day early because of the conditions. The owner did give us our money for the night we left back, but we were extremely disappointed as this is a trip we look forward to every year. We have stayed at many VRBOs in the Castle Rock Lake area in the past and never had an issue.
While it appears as though you can walk down to the lake you can see from the front yard, you aren't allowed because it's a private beach/boat dock.
The positives... the front yard with the firepit and the view of the lake from there are very nice.

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.
