Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful stay. Had a great time hitting the slopes & so nice to come back to your beautiful, comfortable home. I cooked a lot of meals in your well equipped kitchen - it made our trip affordable! With such a large family we have to save when we can. Thank you again for all the extras. We plan to come back next year.

  • 5 of 5

Melissa made everything very easy & she meet us at the house with a warm welcome & a plate of cookies :). We were in town for a girls weekend and the house was simply perfect. Nice area close to everything we wanted to checkout. Very Comfortable & Clean! Just a beautiful house in a great location with the perfect hostess. We are already planning a trip back to hit the slopes this winter at Granite Peak - so keep a light on for us - Thanks again , Katie, Marcie, Maggie, Julie, Kelly, Sara & Grace

Great house with lots of special touches

  • 5 of 5

This is great old house that had plenty of room and was very clean. Each of us 4 guys had our own bedroom! Melisa was extremely responsive to any question, and had milk (in fridge) and cookies awaiting our arrival. Lots of nice touches helped us enjoy our 5-day trip to Wausau. Would definitely stay again.

The Most Convenient Stay Ever

  • 5 of 5

Melissa had EVERYTHING that we could've ever wanted/needed during our stay. Everything was so convenient and we felt right at home. It was amazing to be able to take our furry friends with us too. Everything was perfect.

Perfect for our group

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of six women friends gathering from around the state to spend a weekend together. This house was perfect for us. We loved the house with beautiful original woodwork and decorative features. The house is very clean, comfortable with beds & bedding for everyone and 2 bathrooms. The owner was so thoughtful with things arranged conveniently, extras supplied, and was very welcoming and attentive to make sure we were OK. Thanks for a great stay

Owner's Response: Hi Gloria, Thank you for your kind words. I'm so glad you found the house comfortable and enjoyed your girls weekend. Maybe you could plan a summer get together next time :). The area is beautiful in the summer months with many nearby activities and festivals. The hot air balloon festival is just amazing to see in the night sky. Come back anytime. Melissa
