Condo - 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (could sleep 4+)
Me 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
Why Lesleigh chose Merrimac
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, racoons, and lovely little birds get a better view.
What makes this Condo unique
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.)
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Quiet get away with nearby hiking
The property is located near access to multiple hiking trails which makes it a hiker’s paradise. Great check in process with a kind host! I would recommend checking out Devil’s Lake State Park. All around great experience here with my family!
Great to have 2 generations up here for family time...including your muscular, happy, curious furry family member! (can't remember name...grrrr)
A gem in the woods
Rocky Glen was beautiful. It was off the beaten path but easy to get to. The furnishings were comfortable and we had everything we needed. Lesleigh showed us around to get us comfortable. It has a great homey feel and we would definitely stay here again.
Much looking forward to your next visits in, (at least), every season.
We stayed at this property 3 nights. Lesleigh was great to work with. The beds were very comfortable. The place was very cozy. We did some rock climbing at devils lake. Great stay.
So happy this family trio picked Rocky Glen as their base of operations...namely, hiking and climbing.
Delighted to hear they loved Devil's Lake too...altho 1+ miles from our doorstep, that lake feels like our backyard.
Perfect getaway location and property. Coffee on the balcony in the morning was great!
...and, just maybe, next visit, there will be a deck made out of the balcony...so you'll feel like you're sitting in the midst of the forest canopy...just imagining that is exciting...or relaxing...
Please do come again!
Relaxing home in the woods
We enjoyed the peacefulness of the condo after hiking each day at the beautiful bluffs. . Close to several trails and Devil’s lake, where we purchased a trail pass. Condo equipped with all we needed. Shared laundry facilities with other tenants. Comfortable space and sleeping quarters. Really enjoyed our time there. Thank you!
Great to have these hikers 'camping out' at Rocky Glen...after these tropical Wisconsin days, a little a/c goes a long way! PLUS I recommended taking a Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Castile Soap shower...refreshing!
(No barsoaps provided anymore in the shower...just Bronner's castiles...love 'em.)
Was lucky enough to stay at this great little place for a couple days. Tucked away in a private location just minutes from devils lake which was perfect for us. The home was clean and super cozy. Everything you need is available for you to use. Lesleigh was available, communicative and couldn't be nicer. Will recommend.
Lucky enough to have these folks stay up here in the treetops!
Hope luck holds and I'll see them again!
