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.

Wonderful ,Great Location ,Spotless and Relaxing

  • 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

Wonderful House -Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful! Spacious and very comfortable. The owner Melissa went above and beyond to make sure everything was ready for our large group. My family and my sisters family and our parents. We had the best time. The location is perfect -close to everything. We went up to Granite Peak to check it out as we are planning to come back in January to hit the slopes. Stopped by the Bull Falls Brewery and my wife and daughter went shopping downtown. We will be back!

Wonderful and more than expected.

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place to have a wedding and the subsequent long and relaxing stay. The property is very well situated in Wausau and no one from out of town had a difficult time finding the house. Everyone fomented on how nice the property was and how spacious it was. We had 15 people for the ceremony and there was more than enough room. Melissa had cookies and some well thought of basic supplies in the house too. All on all an exquisite experience.

Perfect Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. This house was perfect for our family. We had a last minute emergency and had to drive in from Nashville for a family member in the hospital. We didn't want to stay in a hotel so we went online and found this perfect home away from home. There was everything we needed while we were there. Melissa met us there with a warm welcome and had even got a few groceries to get us started. That was a blessing because we didn't have time for the grocery store when we first arrived. What a gracious and kind host. We will return again but hopefully it will be for a better reason! Thank you Melissa!

A nice home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect! We loved the location and the layout of the house (perfect for a family with little ones). The owners literally think of EVERYTHING and provide so many thoughtful items (kids games, fresh cookies, toothbrushes if you’ve left yours at home, etc). If you are staying in Wausau, skip the hotel and relax in this charmer

One of the best VRBO's I have ever stayed at.

  • 5 of 5

Melissa thought of everything. Cookies on the counter and more than enough food for breakfast the next morning. The house was very clean and tidy. My young family and parents had everything we needed. Toys, a kids table and portable crib. We would most definitely recommend this house and would stay again if we wound up in Wausau again!
