We are lifelong Wisconsin natives and know this area very well having vacationed here our entire lives. Growing up on a farm, our vacation destination needed to be close by. After marrying and having children we again chose to keep our vacation home close. Our two oldest children are in high school and our youngest in middle school. They are very active and in many sports. Because of this, we are unable to use the cabin as much as we would like. We also love to explore other areas and vacation throughout the country and hopefully beyond. Listing our cabin has allowed us to put that income towards vacation lodging elsewhere. We are also actively looking to swap property rental for something near Yellowstone National Park (WY) & Colorado in June 2013, Harrisburg,PA Oct 2013. Always interested in visiting new locations. If you have a place and want to visit WI, let me know.

Leean R. purchased this house in 2001

We purchased the land in 1998. We built the cabin in 2001. The boys hunt in fall and we spend many hours on Castle Rock Lake boating, tubing, fishing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding and skiing. There's 8 restaurant/bars on the lake. Many have live bands on the outside deck and beach volleyball. There are county and state parks all around offering excellent hiking and walking trails. We also enjoy being on/close to the snowmoble and ATV trails. Of course, there is always a camp fire at night. So much activity during the day yet a place and time to relax when we want to.

Our proximity to Castle Rock Lake, Wisconsin Dells and world reknowned Northern Bay Golf Course makes this the perfect place to be. Our 'owner built' home has all the amenities of home with 5 bedrooms and 2 full baths. All on 10 wooded acres. Willing and eager to trade with your property rental.

GOOD WEEK DESPITE LACK OF CLEANLINESS

  • 1 of 5
We rented this property for a girls family week. Upon arrival, it was immediately evident that the previous users HAD NOT followed the extensive list of cleaning responsibilities before leaving. We spent the first 6 hours of our vacation ( 7 adult women ALL cleaning) cleaning, washing dishes , doing laundry, mopping and vacuuming and cleaning two disgustingly dirty bathrooms. The owner nor any other representative showed up to check on the condition etc... of the home.
This is a very nice home and location; however, it appears that the owner relies solely on renters to do all of the cleaning. This property needs a full, top to bottom cleaning. We left the property 100% better than we found it. Too bad the owner was unwilling to comp even one night for the problems we encountered when we arrived. That would have been the fair, equitable response to our predicament.

Owner's Response: Deborah was told and given a choice via phone and again in email that she was requesting to arrive on a HOLIDAY two hours after another group departed. She was told and reminded that I would be unable to have the turnvover service remake the beds, complete any necessary cleaning tasks left undone by the departing group and inspect the property before her arrival because it was FATHER'S DAY, SUNDAY June 15th. She was given the choice to rent or not to rent during our first contact. She chose to rent knowing this was the situation and the property would not be inspected before her arrival. Here is the email from me to her in which she was reminded of this choice she made:

"I am hoping the group before you does not disappoint you and I. I believe it is a group of younger men. Since they are leaving on Father's Day I am unable to get the turnover service there to verify they did what they agreed to do. Please let me know what the condition is when you arrive. Again, I really hope this works out and you and I are not disappointed."

Clearly I do NOT "rely solely on the renters to do all the cleaning." per Deborah. The hired turnover service will verify that. When Deborah called me to complain about the condition upon her arrival, I was also disappointed, but knew that was the risk she accepted when choosing to rent and that I had forewarned her several times. Yet, I told her she would not need to complete any of the otherwise required cleaning task upon dearting because of having to clean upon arrival. Therefore, she was STILL only required to clean once during her stay. This is how she was "compensated" for what she percieves as a predicament even though this was our agreement. I believe this is "fair, equitable response." She chose to rent knowing this was the situation. This was our verbal and written agreement. I am disappointed I agreeed to accomodate Deborah's requested vacation dates. Despite my repeated warnings to her, and the choice being hers, she was not satisfied.

PERFECT PLACE FOR A GATHERING OF FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
Wow. Where do I begin?

First, I would rent this again, and again, and again. Wouldnt change a thing.

If you are looking to gather a group of people, even in winter, this is the place, EASILY fits 20 in comfort. We had 20 people, fed, served drinks, music and dancing in the utmost comfort.

The property is, YES. MUCH bigger on the inside than pictures make it look, including the non-pictured basement with a card table, and plenty of area for seating etc.

The kitchen and bathrooms were very nice, some of the beds were a little old, but they were meant to be basic. The three seasons porch is awesome, even during winter for smokers, 2 little space heaters really heat it up.

There was just enough parking next to the house after the nice little short driveway.

We were surprised to see neighbors on both sides, some not even 100 yards away, but it seemed at the time we were there, there was no one in either houses.

The loft stairs are very cool, but be careful, they are pretty steep.

The garbage dumpster in the woods out front was full when we got there, but it was nice that it was there, owner provided a solution to help us not have to carry tons of garbage home with us.

The house is EXTREMELY well equipped, certainly the kitchen.

Plenty of hot water for showers etc.

It was also very easy to find.

Owner was pretty quick responding to us throughout the process, we had a small issue with a key in the cold wisconsin weather when we arrived, owner provided an immediate solution, assuring the issue would be fixed soon.


Thats about all I can think of!

Great place! HIGHLY recommended

CHRISTMAS GETAWAY

  • 4 of 5
Arrived Christmas Day. Owners were always available to answer any questions we had. Cabin sleeps 18 comfortably. Pretty setting in the woods with many large windows to view the scenery. Nicest part of the cabin was the fireplace. Mattress pads could use replacing and the cooking pans could use a good cleaning but outside of that we were comfortable.

Owner's Response: Funny you mention that. I picked up a few new mattress pads and new skillet on Black Friday. They will be at the cabin next time I get there (shortly). I too have found some dishes not so clean left by others. Unfortunate, but unavoidable given the circumstances. Thanks for the review.

A CABIN IN THE WOODS

  • 3 of 5
My family and I enjoyed our week in the woods. The cabin is secluded, with lots of parking. Tons of room for our dog and the young kids to roam. The fire pit was terrific. The cabin was very clean and had lots of room for all to sleep. The photos are accurate. The owners were very responsive to my questions. The Dells is about 15 miles away. A nice drive, but need to stock up on supplies as it is a drive to pick up anything you need. There is no wifi, and we were unable to use our aircard to get internet. Cell phone reception was iffy, so check with your carrier if this is a must.

GREAT SPOT FOR BIG GATHERINGS OR QUIET WEEKENDS AWAY

  • 5 of 5
I want to first start out by saying these owners are great to work with and make everything very easy. I went up with a group of about 25 to enjoy the north woods and get some great golf in. This cabin is located less than 10 minutes from Northern Bay golf course, the course is amazing and features 7 replica holes. Check it out online

You really cant beat the price/location of this cabin, we spent multiple days in the dells and at the casino, all are with in 30 minutes. Highly recommend!!!!!

Owner's Response: We really are fortunate to have such a great location close to so many things. Important to note, our rates are based on the guest returning the cabin to the same condition as when they arrived; clean, organized, garbage removed and begin laundering the bed linens. This helps us keep it affordable for the large groups we often get. Thanks for the glowing review.

GREAT LOCATION AT CASTLE ROCK LAKE AND NEAR DELLS

  • 4 of 5
We were a group of 19, celebrating my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We enjoyed being able to grill outdoors during the hot & humid weather. The kitchen was fully stocked with all kinds of utensils, pots, pans, etc needed for making and serving large meals. The accommodations were quite satisfactory for our group and we enjoyed the privacy of the wooded area. The cabin is close to a nice beach at Castle Rock Lake, and an easy drive to the Dells. Finally, the owners of the cabin were great to deal with, and we felt the cost of the cabin was very fair.
