Escape 2 nights, 2 weeks - or more - for a lifetime of memories here at Creekside Escape in West Central Wisconsin.
First: take a few minutes to read some (or all!) of the reviews here on our HomeAway listing. Guest reviews are the ideal way to "see between the lines" of rental home advertising and we've been blessed with many families who've taken the time to tell others what they like best about Creekside. We've been opening up this family home to travelers for the last 14 years & many of them have been kind enough to leave reviews.
Then: when you look at our rates, rest assured there are NO hidden fees here. We also offer a discounted nightly base rate of $150 per night if you plan on staying 7 or more non-holiday nights October thru January; or just $190 per night base rate if you stay 7 nights or more June through September.
What's a base rate? It's the nightly rental fee we charge for up to 5 overnight guests without pets. The 'extra guest' fee and nightly pet fees are explained below.
What are we? Creekside is a fully-furnished, modern & immaculate, family-owned guesthouse located on a wooded hillside above a crystal-clear trout stream. It's an ideal choice for a 2 night get-away or - better yet - a full week or two. We even let you bring your beloved K9(s) - why leave them behind?
Bring your fly rods and fish for our Native Brook, wild Brown or wily Rainbow Trout, or your canoes and kayaks so you can ride the currents, or maybe a tube or two for easy riding. Wade a few minutes in shallow water downstream and there's a wide, deep - typically 8 to 10 foot deep - 'swimming hole,' where you and your loved ones, and your K9s(!) can play and swim in the water. Most years, we even have perfect-for-sun bathing, warm-and-relaxing sandbar beaches you can stretch out on, And we leave out lawn chairs for you to use if you want to sit up and read, or 'do' a picnic, or ...... just sit and stare off into space without being interrupted by anyone or anything.
If you're a hunter, our location can't be beat. We're right in what's called the "Deer Capital of Wisconsin." Between the Jackson County Forest lands and Black River State Forest, there's over 188,000 acres of public hunting opportunities. We're just a 10 minute walk away from 1000s of acres of County Forest land - the perfect habitat for white tail deer, wild turkey, squirrels, possum and rabbits - and an 11 mile drive to the state forest.
We've dedicated a whole acre of land around the house just for our guests to use, so Creekside's a very quiet, very private get-away location for all ages. Yet we're an easy drive to state & county lakes, parks, trails, golfing, shopping & dining. You can go scuba diving at Wazee Lake, try your luck at Majestic Pines Casino, golf at a great course right in Black River Falls or walk the 4 mile Heritage Trail around the city.
Our road is part of a Township-designated ATV route that links right up to the 235 mile Jackson/Clark County ATV/Dual-Sport Motorcycle Trail. We provide safe, off-road parking for your rigs & trailers close to house, with NO 'extra-vehicle' charges. You can get on your rigs at the house, take one of our driveways out to Dodge Road, then drive straight to the Trail 6 section of the two-County system. Do note: the Township ATV route we're on isn't shown on the printed and online ATV maps Jackson County provides! (Ask us to email you the current Township ATV route map so you can see exactly where we're located.)
Our township road is also part of a spectacular 300 + mile snowmobile trail that's well-groomed and maintained and connects to another 500 miles of trails in surrounding counties! Again, you just leave your trailers by the guesthouse, get on your rigs, drive out the driveway and you're in sports-rider heaven.
The house is a modern, two bedroom, two full bath, fully-furnished mobile home that's open Mid April thru the first Monday in January, and comes complete with central heat & A/C, a well-appointed kitchen, laundry room w/washer & dryer + laundry soap & dryer sheets, bed and bath linens plus comfortable, clean furniture in every room. DISH 250 Channel TV Programming and WIFI internet service is provided free-of-charge. Five guests can sleep comfortably on beds in the house. If additional overnight guests have been approved, there's a full-size sofa bed in the living room plus a full-size ('fit for two') Lane sofa bed down in the furnished screen house - open for use mid-Spring thru September. Just about the only things you'll need to bring to Creekside are cell phones, big beach towels and extra large bath towels (if you prefer them) charcoal and flashlights. We'll make up the beds for you (unless you'd rather bring your own linens) or - if time is short between bookings - we'll leave out sheets sets for you to use.
Talking about the screen house: Pretend you're roughing it when you're not!: Guests who want relax 'outside' without ever worrying about bugs are going to love our unique 12 x 14 framed screen house we've named The Bird House. We built it close enough to the creek so you can watch the water flow by and listen to the 'water music' without even getting out of your chair. Read, play cards, get caught up on family news, bring down a picnic basket from the house, watch your spouse fly-fish the creek, or your kids play in the water. Work on crafts, or just sit down there and and do nothing. We provide the pillows, blankets, comforter and sheets for the sleeper sofa. Do note that the guesthouse and The Bird House aren't handicapped-accessible or child-proofed.
Smoking isn't allowed in the guesthouse, but it is allowed on the open entry porch, on the decks and in The Bird House (cigarettes only there.)
Our base rates apply to up to 5 overnight guests without pets. If additional overnight guests are approved, an additional $20 per nite per person (3 years and older at the time of your visit) will be charged. If you're bringing a K9 (or 2 or 3!) see our pet rates, rules and regulations below.
We've already included the nasty 5.5% state and local taxes here in all our rates.
It's a 2 nite minimum rental here throughout the year except for:
the last full weekend of September = 3 night minimum rental and Nov 17th thru the 26th = a 4 night minimum rental.
Children are always welcome but must be kept under adult supervision at all times when they're in the house, on the property and in the water. Just ask and we'll be glad to provide a highchair, baby tub, diaper pail and soft play toys for your little ones. When they get to the outdoor-game age, we provide lots of water and land toys, balls, badminton rackets, birds and net, horseshoes, even croquet and Bocce ball sets.
Dog(s) are very welcome! A $100 refundable pet damage deposit is required for your first visit and modest nightly pet fees are charged for up to 3 K9s, with no weight-limit. Those additional fee(s) are: for 2 night stays: $15 per night, one dog; $20 per night, 2 dogs and $25 per night for 3 dogs. If staying 3 nights or more, it's $12 per night for 1 dog, $17 for 2 dogs and $22 for 3 dogs. Ask us to email you our Pet Rules and Regulations so you know what's allowed and required of our pet owners and their pets.
Enjoy all the activities in this area of Wisconsin while you're here, Spring Summer, Fall and early Winter, or just soak up the R & R right at Creekside. No other renters or rental units here, so there's none of the noise associated with water parks or large RV/camper sites where you're elbow-to-elbow with other vacationers. The owners do live just downstream from the guesthouse, but you'll never see them unless they're watering the gorgeous gardens surrounding Creekside or you need their help with something.
Key in. Sigh. Relax. Enjoy!
