House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

Enjoy this unique 4 bedroom all season vacation home nestled in the Glacier Point development on Castle Rock Lake. This family-friendly rental is located just 20 minutes north of Wisconsin Dells across the street from the 4th largest lake in WI. After you enjoy a day of excitement in the Dells, you can retreat to your quiet getaway in the woods!

The home features vaulted knotty pine ceilings in the great room with a wall of windows overlooking the pond, an open concept kitchen with large granite island and stainless steel appliances. The spacious master bedroom/bath with king bed and an additional bedroom with adjacent full bath with queen bed, completes the main level. Overlooking the great room is a loft with sleeper sofa, futon, and full sized bed. The walk-out lower level includes a full bath and 2 more bedrooms with queen beds along with bunk beds in both. The rec room has a flat screen high definition tv above the stone fireplace and opens to a patio leading to the pond. The home features a Sonos Wifi 6 zone sound system for your listening pleasure, allowing you seamless access to your personal music accounts through your phone or ipad along with SiriusXM channels, Spotify, Pandora, and any of your other listening favorites.

Relax with a cup of coffee on the deck with the morning sun overlooking the clean, sand-bottomed 1/3 acre private pond (complete with Otter Island swim raft) while the kids enjoy swimming and chasing frogs. Deer, turkeys, owls and other wildlife can often be spotted from the home which is surrounded by pine trees on a spacious 3 acres. Walk alongside the lake on the public trail and enjoy beautiful views of the lake from the tops of the shoreline bluffs. Wind down your day by the outdoor firepit while roasting marshmallows and being serenaded by crickets and frogs. We even supply the firewood!

The pond is stocked with bluegill, black crappies, and large-mouth bass, allowing for a great catch and release fishing experience for the kids.

Enjoy our private beach volleyball court and horseshoe pits!

We have numerous kid-friendly amenities including toys, strollers, a booster seat, pack n play, and toddler bed. This allows for a few less things for you to pack!

A full library of movies and numerous games provides for rainy day fun. Your short drive to The Dells opens a whole world of entertainment including a movie theater, casino, mini golf, go-karts, roller coasters and nearly any other adventure you can think of!

A county park is just minutes away to launch your boat or other water toys. We offer a private pier for loading and unloading your boat. Sorry, there is no boat lift available and the dynamics of the large lake do not allow you to tie your boat to the pier. You are welcome to pull it up onto the common beach area or there are reasonable dock rentals available 10 minutes from the home.

There are pontoon and jet ski rentals just a few short miles away. Several restaurants and lake bars with great food and nightly entertainment await you.

Plenty of activities surround the home in winter as well. Snowmobilers have instant access to the Juneau County snowmobile trails which are right across the street. If you are looking to ski or snowboard, Cascade Mountain is only 40 minutes away and Christmas Mountain a mere 25 minutes from the home. Trails along the lake make for great snowshoeing. Several sledding hills are nearby along with cross-country skiing and sleigh rides. After a long day of playing hard in the snow, relax with a cocktail by one of the 2 cozy indoor fireplaces.

You won't be disappointed in this fantastic home and the entertainment and beauty that Castle Rock Lake and the surrounding area has to offer!

Mark is very responsive and accommodating as well! We all enjoyed our stay here and would love to come back in the future!

                                                            Alison S.

                                                            This is our fourth year renting this house. And we are looking forward to our fifth year next year.

                                                            This property was wonderful!

                                                            Amanda T.

                                                            We had a great time with our family and had plenty of room. The heated mattress pads were icing on the cake in the middle of winter. The place was super clean, which was a concern having a baby crawling around. We will stay again!
