About Leean R.

We are lifelong Wisconsin natives and know this area very well having vacationed here our entire lives. Growing up on a farm, our vacation destination needed to be close by. After marrying and having children we again chose to keep our vacation home close. Our two oldest children are in high school and our youngest in middle school. They are very active and in many sports. Because of this, we are unable to use the cabin as much as we would like. We also love to explore other areas and vacation throughout the country and hopefully beyond. Listing our cabin has allowed us to put that income towards vacation lodging elsewhere. We are also actively looking to swap property rental for something near Yellowstone National Park (WY) & Colorado in June 2013, Harrisburg,PA Oct 2013. Always interested in visiting new locations. If you have a place and want to visit WI, let me know.

Leean R. purchased this house in 2001

Why Leean R. chose Castle Rock Lake

We purchased the land in 1998. We built the cabin in 2001. The boys hunt in fall and we spend many hours on Castle Rock Lake boating, tubing, fishing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding and skiing. There's 8 restaurant/bars on the lake. Many have live bands on the outside deck and beach volleyball. There are county and state parks all around offering excellent hiking and walking trails. We also enjoy being close to the snowmoble and ATV routes. Of course, there is always a camp fire at night. So much activity during the day yet a place and time to relax when we want to.

What makes this house unique

Our proximity to Castle Rock Lake, Wisconsin Dells and world reknowned Northern Bay Golf Course makes this the perfect place to be. Our 'owner built' home has all the amenities of home with 5 bedrooms and 2 full baths. All on 10 wooded acres. Willing and eager to trade with your property rental.

Our mini-vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had recently lost our dad and all of our holiday time as a family was spent in the hospital, so we didn't really have a family Christmas or New Years, so decided to find a big enough place where we could just be together as a family, enjoying time together, remember good times with my dad and making new memories and we did just that! The cabin was truly lovely and each family unit had their own space which was great. We were close enough to the Dells that some took in a local water park and many also went shopping at the Outlet Mall. Only disappointment was that a local Amish shop was closed on Saturday, but we made up for it by stopping and enjoying Fawn Creek Winery just a few miles away!

We loved the cabin so much that we are planning to make this an annual event! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Great for Annual Winter Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

After 30 annual winter reunions in a remote cabin without plumbing, our group of 11 college buddies wanted something much nicer. This property worked out great. There were more than enough individual beds for each of us to have our own. Everything was clean and the sheets fresh. The large, open kitchen/dining/living area kept us all together as a group and there was plenty of room for meal preparation. The wooden interior, high ceilings and fireplace provided a comfortable, casual atmosphere. The furniture and furnishings were appropriate for a large group at a casual cabin. You can buy firewood in town, but don’t forget to bring dry kindling and newspaper if you want to use the fireplace. The 2 audio devices they had (Bluetooth, CD) were modest but sufficient. The large TV was great for watching the NFL playoffs. Taking walks on the low traffic road to get fresh air was great and because there was minimal snow, we were able to do a bit of hiking in Sohlberg Silver Lake State Natural Area 1/2 mile away. Make certain to bring snowshoes if you want to do longer winter hikes on that trail.

The owner was very responsive, with a cell phone call quickly resolving the only issue we had. All the other 5 star reviews are right on target. One issue listed in a 4 star review (access to dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, hand soap) had been addressed by the owner prior to our visit, but they appropriately advise you to be prepared with extra.

The location was convenient for people driving from MN, driving from WI and flying into Milwaukee.

Great place!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed at the property for several days between Christmas and New Year's Eve. Upon arrival we found everything as expected -- the place was clean and tidy, the kitchen was well equipped and the surroundings were beautiful (Sohlberg Silver Lake State Natural Area is just a two minute walk down the road!). We had a very enjoyable stay and the owner was extremely responsive. A snowstorm hit the day/evening before we were scheduled to depart and the owner made sure the plow guy arrived first thing in the morning to clear the long driveway. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic getaway for a large group

  • 5 of 5

The location was just as advertised. Property outside was well maintained and clean. The inside was fairly clean too. The place was also extremely spacious inside and outside, which was great for any larger group like ours. There were enough beds/couches for everyone. In addition, there is a non-pictured basement that has a nice poker table, including a poker set amongst other games to play. They had pots, pans and other cooking utensils for us to use. It was nice having all these amenities there already so we didn't have to worry about bringing as much ourselves.

The property manager was very clear about how she wanted the place maintained and how to maintain it. She was very prompt about payment/home information and easy to get a hold of. We had a young group of 20 people and we were all quite content with our stay. The only small issue for our young group was there was no wi-fi, so if that's something you factor into your decision the closest place with wi-fi is about a 30 minute drive away. Most of us were able to get good phone reception.

Our stay was relatively short, so we didn't get to get out to Castle Rock for the day or anything, but there are a lot of close by nice areas to check out as well.

Overall would recommend this location!
