4/5 Good

Convenient, cozy spot to explore local area
Clean, well maintained and appointed property. Stayed with husband and daughter to explore local area. Daughter loved watch T.V. from the bunk beds and sitting at a stool at the counter to eat snacks. After playing around in area rivers and lakes it was nice to have a washer and dryer in the basement to wash some of our things. There was also a tub for a bath and ample hot water and water pressure for a relaxing shower.

5/5 Excellent

Very impressed!
My sister and I did a get-away for 3 nights and found the property very clean and well stocked. The beds were very comfortable and the decor made us feel very comfortable. We highly recommend!!

5/5 Excellent

Delightful Getaway at Newly Remodeled Cottage
This newly remodeled cottage was very clean and exactly as pictured. It was perfect for our family getaway weekend. We enjoyed time in the local state parks and the comfort of preparing our meals, playing foosball and hanging out at the cottage. Host was accessible and helpful. THANK YOU SO MUCH, Jody! We've never been to Wausau before and really enjoyed our stay!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location for skiing at Granite Peak
The place was spotless and so many thoughtful things present to use. K cups for the Kerig, DVDs for the players, hairdryer for the bathroom, plus soap for all sinks and dish area. I mention as I have been at VRBOs where literally had to bring everything! The second bedroom was perfect for our two teens-their own tv! The foosball table in basement an added bonus!

5/5 Excellent

Annual ski trip
Clean, roomy, contemporary. TV/wifi works effortlessly and semi finished basement equipped for ski/equipment storage was handy
