As a Christmas present me & my husband paid for a trip to Wisc (we live in FL) to c the snow for our family of 11 (kids & grandkids) We ckd in on Sun.to stay for a week. Most of us had never seen snow but woke up Mon. morning to see it snowing a lot. Within hours there were abt 10 inches. Snowed again Wed. and a little late Thurs. night. This was perfect. The pictures on line made the house look gorgeous but when we got there it was even better than the pictures (not sure how that was possible) The hill in the yard was awesome for sledding down. We would daily have to make the kids come in (& some of the adults including me) it was sooo much fun. Me & my husband went walking all around the property & even seen some deer late one aftrn. The cottage which was loaded with games & extra beds, was wonderful. We stayed over there more than in the main house. I definitely recommend you add this if you r renting the house. Plenty of everything was in the house , example towels, blankets, kitchen items & much more. Even things u wld not have expected r there for your use. Both places were well equipped. On Wed. when my son came back from town he got the car stuck in the driveway (due to so much snow) We cld Sam and within an hr or 2 he had someone out there clearing the driveway and the area behind the house. We were all 100% happy with the houses and would definitely recommend it to anyone. I have to say a big THANK YOU to Sam for the memories he has allowed us to make with our family while staying at his house. You for sure r part of the reason our trip was AWESOME !!!
