Overview

Wisconsin Dells House Rental Photos and Description

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 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 6 zone sound system for your listening pleasure complete with ipod connection portal.

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.

Coming in 2016, 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I'm writing this review after returning from an excellent week at the "Spacious Retreat." My wife and I were traveling with my parents and my brother, sister-in-law, two nieces and nephew. As we're all in different phases of our lives, we were all looking for something a little different in a vacation. Everybody left the home satisfied.



The home is absolutely beautiful. When we pulled around the corner and saw it for the first time, somebody commented that it looked exactly like the pictures. From the wood floors to the beams to the fireplaces to the decks, the home has a great woodsy feel. The pond, although a little deeper than usual after a rainy spring/summer, is just as advertised. We all had a great time swimming, laying out on the platform, and fishing.



The Dells are about a half hour away, so for those who are interested, it's an easy drive. My brother and his family went into town just about every day and had no issue with the drive. The rest of us only went in a couple of days because we didn't want to leave the the serene atmosphere to fight the crowds.



Another thing to consider is all of the opportunity for vacationers at Castle Rock Lake. There are boat rentals, lots of lakefront bars and restaurants, and a couple of county parks with beaches should you get tired of the pond (we didn't). We did have a great day out on a pontoon.



No matter where our days took us, they all began and ended together at the house. The two fridges provided ample room and all of the cooking implements worked great. The sound system was an added plus as we had music from the directv system playing constantly. They even have a couple of speakers outside so you can listen to tunes while floating. We finished our nights watching movies on one of the big screen TV's or in the backyard with a fire.



Bottom line, if you're looking for a relaxing, quiet home within driving distance of the Dells, I don't really see how you could do better. My wife and I are already talking about getting some friends together and heading back in the future.

It was a cozy, lovely space to spend a weekend with friends! Would highly recommend it for a stay of any length, especially for large groups, like families! Well furnished, with dreamy beds! You won't be disappointed!

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my family has stayed at this property, and we love it. There is so much to do on the property with the pond, volleyball courts, horse shoe pit, etc. that it keeps the kids entertained the entire time. The property is clean an well kept, and the owner is extremely accommodating. I recommend this for any family.

Great property! Very spacious and comfortable. Plenty of room for everyone.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. Gave our entire family a chance to be together for the week and enjoy the quiet surroundings around the lake house. Our grandchildren totally enjoyed the pond, fishing and paddle boarding... they had a blast. Also using Castle Rock County Park as the launching point for our boat was very convenient and we were impressed with the entire Lake scene including the beach play area, Devil's Island, tubing and water-skiing. We also enjoyed having a fire going each night in the firepit. New sand volleyball court and horseshoe pits were great. Plenty of toys and games for the kids (ages 3-8).

We just love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 4th time we've spent our family vacation at this beautiful home! With 5 children, their spouses and a bunch of grandchildren it is the perfect location for us. A couple of the grandchildren have caught their first fish in the pond! The paddle boards were a huge hit and the sand volleyball court was a blast! The home is as clean an well maintained as the first time we stayed here back in 2012. It's like being on your own private resort! The owner is easy to reach if there are any questions or concerns. I research VRBO often for other friends and family but I've never seen anything quite like this! We pick one day of the week to go to Wisconsin Dells (only about a 20 minute drive). Buckhorn State Park is very close by so we get the chance to do some kayaking there or sometimes we just take them right to Castle Rock lake (1/2 mile away). The county park has a very nice beach but we love that we can stay right where we are. We love to play indoor and outdoor games. Every year there are new games to play! The home is stocked with everything you need to make your vacation a lasting memory for family and friends!

Great vacation retreat with whole family

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have rented this property. It is always very clean and well kept when we get there. Owner is excellent to communicate with. Any questions, and you just have to text him and he'll get right back to you. He goes well beyond trying to make your stay wonderful. Has lots of water equipment and games there for children and adults. No matter if is sunny or raining there is plenty to do. Would highly recommend renting this beautiful home.

Awesome, Better than Advertised!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had our annual family vacation here with family meeting from several parts of the country. 11th year in a row we have done this and everyone made comments throughout the week that this was the best rental for the money we have ever stayed in. Very peaceful location, very clean accommodations, well laid out floor plan for larger group, and a very super responsive owner. We could not have asked for a better experience. Spent one day just hanging around the cabin because of all the things it allowed for everyone to do there, spent another day at the convenient Castle Rock lake on rental boats (minutes away), and all the other days drove to the Dells (20min or so) doing various things. It was a neat experience that even on the days in the Dells the kids were excited when we said we were going back to the cabin because they couldn't wait to get back to fishing and playing in the private pond. Thank you for helping make our annual trip terrific!
