Unit 4 is perched amongst a canopy of oak and birch trees - you can stand on the balcony, reach out, and touch leaves and branches over 2-stories from the ground! Unit 4 is one of eight condominiums in a building nestled amongst a mature birch/oak forest with views over the Lake Wisconsin valley. Casual, whimsical, bright furnishing. Italian ceramic floor in bath and kitchen. New step-in rainfall shower. Woodburning stove insert in the original, beautiful, stone fireplace. Small firepit outside for quiet summer/fall eves; or hearty-folks roasting s'mores in winter.
Lovely, oiled-teakwood laminate floors LR and Hall - carpeted bedrooms. You may find yourself resting on a pillowcase embroidered by my Cornish grandmother; or snuggled under a quilt made of squares of men's suit material; or find pencil drawings sent to Cornwall from the trenches of WWI...poke about...little surprises all over.
AND...and whole bass fiddle case of books!
Wildlife sightings - deer, turkey, raccoon, owl, and birds of all sorts fly over or walk through these remarkable surrounds. Marvelous earthrise and earthsets. I think the trees up here talk.

Comfy in the living room - fireplace blazing nearby and watching something wonderful on PBS...probably the Dicken's series...what teriffic tear-jerkers!
Lesleigh purchased this condo in 1999
How could I NOT have fallen in love with this place!? (I didn't mean to...it was a first project for me/my chef brother.) Although not a skiier or golfer, I AM a walker and I just step out the door and I'm nearly in the woods...AND stepping out on the balcony puts you eye--level with tree tops. Only squirrels, cranes, turkey vultures, and lovely little birds get a better view.
Peace - to watch the trees 'converse' with each other - the neverending changes framed by each window to the forest - the very occasional concert (Los Lobos a several several years ago) or fireworks from Devil's Head Resort on New Year's Eve - sitting around the firepit on a summer or fall evening - the water from a quartzite well in the basement (it bypasses the water softening system otherwise required for the building) - staying up the nights male owls joust in the air above our parking lot (I always think of the Quiddich field from Harry Potter.)
This amazing building is 3 stories high in total, but only 2 stories high in any one place. There are 4 bays consisting of two condos, one atop another. Each bay juts out and/or into the bluff and forest. Wonderful design!...and it is a wonderful healing place. We hope you enjoy sharing the magic up here.
Quite simply put, A+. " L " is a kind and gracious host. All aspects went with ease and simplicity. I went skiing with my kids at Devils Head, fantastic location. Close and private condo. Very nice comfortable stay with wonderful personal touches and amenities. I will be staying there again next year. Thank you "L"
Happy New Year!
We are a group of 5 sisters who get away 2-3 times a year. We try and go all around Wisconsin and stay in different areas. But we think we have found our go to spot. What a beautiful property and gracious hostess! The pictures do not do the condo justice. It is big, beautiful and eclectic! We spent 3 nights there and we're still finding new things as we were packing up to (sadly) go back home. The beds were comfortable as well as the couch. The cracking firewood was perfect when we were sipping our wine. The assortment of soap in the shower and 5 color coded sets of towels for us were another pleasant surprise. Everything and more we could have wanted was at our fingertips. Even down to a fire started about a half an hour before our arrival by Lesleigh. We definitely are going back! Thank you Lesleigh.
We spent a fantastic two nights at this condo and loved the location, the decorations, and the experience. I appreciated the cozy feel of the place and the ability to walk to Parfreys Glenn or parts of the bluffs. We would definitely come back.
Four friends sharing our annual get-together had a wonderful long weekend at Rocky Glen - beautiful setting, perfect location for our exploration of Devils Lake State park and environs, and Lesleigh couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating. The condo itself had everything we needed and comfortable in every way.
Lesleigh's home was the perfect place for us to stay for a quiet "Girl's Only" weekend. This was our first time renting via VRBO and Lesleigh made it a wonderful experience for us. Her condo is in a very peaceful setting in the woods close to Devil's Lake and Parfrey's Glen. Its warm, inviting, cozy, comfortable and very clean. All the amenities we needed were provided and then some. We immediately felt relaxed when we arrived there and could have stayed for the week or longer - if we had the time :) We would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get away.
It's a wonderful stay at Rocky Glen and the perfect place to unwind. Step in and take a deep breathe and let the de-stress begin. The condo is peaceful, welcoming, and full of treasures. This pretty "cottage style" condo is a wonderful setting to create lasting memories with family and friends. We plan to come back again and again.
