Wonderful Place To Stay on Our Family Ski Trip!

  • 5 of 5

My family and my brothers family all gathered in Wausau to ski and just have a fun week together. 5 adults ,4 kids and our dog Max. I was a little worried about bringing Max but it worked out perfectly -fenced yard and all. The house is in a great location maybe 10-15 minute drive to Granite Peak and yet we were close to everything. We enjoyed lunch downtown at Redeye Brewing Co. The girls went shopping and another day we stopped at the Sams pizza. Very good pizza!Granite Peak is great I think they have 70 some runs so we didn't get bored. The house is very comfortable and spacious. I think every bedroom has a tv which was a plus for the kids when we did have bad weather and had to stay in. The home is also fully stocked we had everything we needed to cook and really enjoyed our stay. Melissa the owner was very helpful and had everything ready for us when we checked in -We will be back!

The house was great. Very roomy and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting in the backyard in the evening. The neighborhood is really lovely and convenient to get to everything we needed. Melissa is a great hostess. We will definitely be back.

Hi Melissa,

Funny I just told a friend about your house today (Matt) as his family is planning a ski trip to Wausau later in the year.

We very much enjoyed our stay. I was a little afraid with every relative we have in tow lol.that we might be crowded however the house is so spacious it worked out great! We could tell how much pride you take in the home. Comfortable, clean and well stocked.

The location is great -seemed we were close to everything.

I will continue to recommend your home to anyone headed to Wausau.

Thanks again,

John & Julie

Comfortable and Spacious house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this house with family and 3 dogs. We were in town for a family wedding and are from out of state. Melissa met us at the house and had everything all set up for us including everything in the kitchen we needed. The house was so comfortable and spacious. We felt immediately at home . The house is so conveniently located close to the downtown area and is also located in a nice neighborhood for walking our dogs and a fenced in backyard for letting them out otherwise. The beds are also very comfortable. Our only suggestion to Melissa is to add a guest book at the front door so more people can leave other comments about their wonderful stay. :) Melissa thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful. We really appreciate everything you did to make us feel comfortable.

Perfect for my family

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice! Spotless and very nice bedding and towels.

Loved having all the space - We were traveling with my extended family.

Kitchen had everything we needed at hand. Location is great we didn't have to spend a lot of time driving to get around town. Just a really nice home.

Melissa (the owner) was great - made everything easy.

Clean & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home! We really enjoyed our stay and so did my dog "Wilbur" I hate to leave him behind when I travel. They even provided doggie treats for him - A very nice touch. The back yard is completely fenced. The location was perfect and the home is beautiful.

Owner's Response: Lily & Marc Thank you it was a great pleasure having you all here. We are really excited they just had the Grand Opening for the Marathon County Sports Complex its located by the Curling Club- I think your son mentioned he had walked over to check it out when you were here. They will have Soccer, Lacrosse & other events . I know your family loves soccer so maybe I'll get to see you and Wilbur again. Be sure to give that adorable bear a hug from me.
