About Doris and Sanjiv

We enjoy cooking at home and on vacation. Staying at a hotel does not allow for healthy home cooked meals and a vacation home is thus much preferred for all our travels. We do organic gardening at our home and just enjoy spending time outside whenever we can. The house in Wausau allows us to unwind and enjoy nature in the most beautiful and calm surroundings.

Doris and Sanjiv purchased this house in 2015

Why Doris and Sanjiv chose Central Wisconsin

We purchased the house because it was in such a spectacular location. We fell in love with it since it is such a jewel enveloped in beautiful landscaping.

What makes this house unique

Amazing vistas and gardens with a view of Rib Mountain. Access to hiking and cross country trails in private woods.

Beautiful inside and out!

  • 4 of 5

My immidate family stayed at this property while on a trip to a larger family reunion party over the weekend. We were not disappointed! We enjoyed the fire ring and took an early morning hike in the surrounding woods. Very quite and serene. The grounds are extremely well groomed and cared for ... as was the interior. Beautiful fixtures, floors and decor ... simple and elegant and welcoming. The only reason we did not give the home five stars is we do wish there was more seating for our group (7) to ALL gather comfortably around the fire or television areas together. We had one rainy day and had to split up between the fireplace room and downstairs TV area because there was not a place we could all fit comfortably together. Perhaps an additional couch in each room or a sectional around the TV.? BUT ... we would definatle come back here again and do highly recommend this home. It had everything we needed and the grounds were amazing! Thank you for sharing your lovely home!

Beautiful Home, Quiet Location, AMAZING Yard!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home mainly for the beautiful yard, and it did not disappoint! It is even prettier in person than in the pictures. We actually held a small outdoor wedding on the property, and it was absolutely perfect for the occasion. The lawn is huge and immaculately manicured. Being able to do everything (ceremony, pictures, reception) in one place was a great perk. The house itself was lovely as well. We had 8 guests staying in the home, and there was plenty of space for everyone. The dining room and upstairs living room have large windows with a lot of light and fantastic views, and were great places for us to hang out and relax. Doris and Sanjiv were both so great to work with – they were very quick to respond to questions/requests (and we had a lot) and went above and beyond to make our wedding day beautiful and our stay comfortable. I cannot say enough good things about them and the property! Overall our stay was amazing and we will definitely be back. Highly recommend!

Great escape

  • 5 of 5

Quite and relaxing atmosphere.. close to town and dining. The only issue we had during our stay was the Wi-fi. It was very slow and often than not if more than one person was connected it was very bad and wasn't worth trying to use.

Other than that we had a great return vistit to the Garden Chalet and hope to comeback again soon.

Amazing Property and Owners

  • 5 of 5

The Garden Chalet is just as described. Our family truly felt like we got away from the city. We enjoyed both the beautiful property and wonderful home. There is a basketball hoop on the driveway and huge yard for the kids to enjoy. The owners we're fantastic and very responsive to any questions we had. Thank you for a wonderful stay that helped to make for a fantastic family vacation.

Wausau is a beautiful little town located on rolling hills in Wisconsin with Rib Mountain as the backdrop. It is small enough to be cute, but just big enough to have grocery stores, fine dining and big box retailers in town so you have access to a full array of services.

You can hike, hunt, fish, ski and go boating all within minutes of this property. Or, you can just choose to relax in this incredibly comfortable home with lovely vistas from the living room.
