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.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion at this home over the Thanksgiving holiday. 21 people stayed at the house and another family of 6 visited. The home had more than enough room for accommodating those that stayed at the house. Living and kitchen area is very nice with arched ceilings. The porch a was great place to store outdoor items, games, and coolers. The kids spent a lot of time in the basement playing board games. The outside of the house has a nice fire pit on the deck. We did play some volleyball outside with the net that was provided. Normally we play football, but there was not much room in the yard other than for the volleyball and parking. Overall, we enjoyed our time together and look forward to returning. It was a very economical rental.

Tucked away house

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay if you need lots of room. The fireplace was wonderful and the kitchen area took care of all our needs. We were happy to be able to bring our dog with us. There was lots of room for our extended family.

Love this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the cabin with our family. We use this as a family reunion getaway. The only complaint was the weather - Mother Nature delayed us getting to the cabin by a day and even then the roads were still treacherous. Once we got there, we stayed there and had a great time - catching up, playing games, taking walks in the snowy woods, doing crafts, etc. All in all a wonderful place that I would highly recommend to others. We may just try it this upcoming Fall instead when we do not have to worry about snow, ice, sleet, roads closed due to high water etc. :)

All that we hoped!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Friendship House this January! My 2 sisters and I brought all of our grown children and their babies for a 24hour Christmas celebration. The house gave us everything we needed for a wonderful get-together! Things were clean, comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped for preparing a big meal. We ate, sang, laughed and celebrated. Thank you for giving us a place to do that!

Remote and quiet

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place that is off the beaten path, this is it. It is still a reasonable car trip to many amenities. The location does not have WIFI, but that was not an issue for us. The location also had a VERY detailed clean up list. The cleaning deposit is $250, which is quite reasonable. 1 great room with a very large loft. 5 bedrooms for privacy. It was a perfect location for a group a friends looking to hang out for a weekend.
