About Sondra Armstrong

I am a nature and animal lover. The setting of this home gives me lots of enjoyment from watching the eagle's soar over the lake, to the deer feeding in my yard.

Sondra Armstrong purchased this house in 1992

Why Sondra Armstrong chose Northern Wisconsin

I traveled to this area for many years and rented homes. I was fortunate to find this home for sale. I added the top floor and fully modernized all bathrooms and kitchen This home has been a favor spot for my children and relatives for years.

What makes this house unique

The quaint town and peaceful woods are such a pleasant change from big towns and crowded neighborhoods.

Great Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year back to this home. PERFECT for two families enjoying the week! Tons of bedrooms and lots of space. Screen deck is great for relaxing or playing games with the kids. Inside there is a very generous sized dining room table to gather for large family meals or play puzzles, and the downstairs is another great area to watch tv, play games and more. The home is very well appointed from the kitchen that has everything to personal touches from the owners. These include fresh flowers on arrival and gifts to renters based on the owner's special interests. The owners are very accommodating in any way they can and the home's caregiver who lives near by is equally as helpful. I can see renting this home for many years to come!

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this home. The home was very comfortable for our large family and there was lots of room for the kids to play outside. We also had a great time boating on the lake. This home is close to the town and all amenities. We would definately recommend this house for a vacation.

Nancy and family from southern Wisconsin

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several properties in Wisconsin for our yearly family vacation. This property exceeds all others. We arrived to a very clean, well maintained house inside and out. The owners and caretakers are very helpful with any questions or concerns.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We found this to be an exceptional property to spend our family vacation. The home accommodated 9 people with room to spare. We arrived to a clean home, flowers and hospitality basket on the counter, and clear instructions regarding the use of the home and property. There was a great swim area for younger children near the dock, and Catfish Lake provided excellent boating and tubing for the adults. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it to others.

Beware - This place is not what it appears!

  • 2 of 5

We rented this house for 5 nights expecting to arrive at a warm cozy cabin in the "Northwoods" as the owners described. When we arrived it was like walking into someones home that they had just left an hour prior to our arrival. We found personal belongings in every bathroom cabinet down to a women s swim suit hanging on the back of the bathroom door, and kotex in the drawer.

The kitchen cabinets were so full there was no room to store any of the food that we brought for our stay. We found ants in the canisters left on the kitchen counter, spider webs around all of the windows (we understand it's the country) these had not been cleaned for a long time.

We brought all of these items to the attention of the owner and received nothing but defensive feedback.

When I inquired about getting our security deposit returned, (and by the way, these people do not accept credit cards and expect you to send them personal checks or money orders for rent and deposits).I was told that they decided not to charge us for the furniture that we rearranged the normally incurs a charge to move back??? We had moved a table from the deck out to the fire pit, and a nightstand from one wall in the master bedroom to the side of the bed for better reading light at night.

I do not recommend this place to others, the owners are inexperienced in renting vacation homes and have a lot to learn. We have rented many homes across the country and in Canada and were not impressed with our experience.

Owner's Response: This guest wanted us to return part of his rent due to leaving a day early for business. As clearly stated in the rental contract there are no refunds for early departure.We refunded his full deposit (which he didn't want to send us for his stay) as a good gesture on our part even though we incurred an expense of a handyman to move our furniture back. He admits to moving a table from our deck to the fire pit area and failed to replace it. The table weighs at least two hundred pounds and was specifically selected to be on the deck because of this weight so that during a wind storm the table would not be blown through the windows that surround the deck. The fire pit is located over 50 yards away from the deck down a flight of stairs. The nightstand that he moved and did not return to the original place was blocking the bedroom door from closing. The rental contract has a clause stating if any furniture is moved it is to be replaced. We travel most of the year and have rented lots of VRBO homes most as our home have the basic essentials such as spices, coffee condiments and emergency feminine products.With the exception of the presence of a few spiderwebs on the outside of the house (Spiderwebs on the outside of a home in the Northwoods? How terrible) none of his comments have any truth to them whatsoever. I wouldn't take his ridiculous complaints in regards to our home into consideration. He admits his actions in writing and is disrespectful if not highly rude.
