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.

We LOVED this home & I didn't want to leave :)

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for my husbands work. This was a very last minute trip and we have a 5 year old and a 3 month old. I could not see staying at a hotel with a baby -so we found this home. First of all the home was very easy to find even at night. Melissa the owner was at the house to meet us with a friendly smile and made us feel very welcome. Everything! was ready for us which I so appreciated because we were tired. It was so helpful to have all the extras.

Our stay was great! I was very relaxed and the house was comfortable ,spotless and just charming. We hope to come back again but for a vacation next time.

A Winner ! Comfortable, Clean & Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The house is in the perfect location! Very easy to get around. Melissa the owner was Great! - easy to work with and happy to share any area info. She meet us at the property and had everything ready for us. The house is beautiful & historical ,but updated with all the modern features. The kitchen was very well equipped so easy to prepare a meal. The house was spacious with plenty of room for everyone so we didn't feel crowded. One of the most important things to me was that the bed was so comfortable with nice linens. We plan to be back & highly recommend this home!

Very Comfortable & Clean -We Loved This Home !

  • 5 of 5

My family and I came to the area for a friends wedding & to go skiing at Granite Peak.

Melissa (home owner) was wonderful & answered all our questions and was waiting to greet us when we arrived.

The process was very easy and you can tell they take great pride in this home.

The wedding was amazing we had a wonderful time. The house is really beautiful and spacious.

Everything was ready for us -it was truly more than we expected. I would highly recommend and we hope to return again next season.

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!
