Lake Wausau Home Minutes From Downtown and Granite Peak!

Family-friendly vacation home with water park and fitness center
Perfect location for both winter and summer fun! In winter, snowshoe or snowmobile right from the backyard! In summer, boat & kayak around the lake! 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath ranch style home located on Lake Wausau in Schofield, just minutes from downtown Wausau and Granite Peak Ski Hill. This home can accommodate up to 10 people, so it's perfect for a family, or group of friends. Three bedrooms upstairs can sleep a total of 8 people - one king size bed, one queen size bed, and two sets of twin bunk beds. Upstairs living area has large south-facing windows, letting in lots of sunshine and warmth in the Winter afternoons. 2-car heated garage is great in Winter! There is room for 2 additional cars in the driveway. Lower level of the home is set up for entertaining! Xbox One, Playstation 4, ROM-based Atari and Sega Genesis with all of your old school classics available on two 50" Smart TVs. Board games, puzzles, video games and lending library all included! Large wet bar with full size refrigerator, wine cooler, kegerator, and it's own 50" Smart TV. Large dining area with table that can seat 6 right next to the bar. The adjoining lower level living room has a wood burning fireplace and 75" Smart TV for cozy nights indoors. Lower level couch is a sofa sleeper that can accommodate two additional guests, for a total of 10! Yoga and a session in the lower-level sauna are the perfect way to start the day. Heading outside, there is a large deck off the main level overlooking the lake - perfect for sipping coffee in the mornings. The large lower level patio has a table and chairs and a gas grill for outdoor dining. Go down a few stairs and you'll find a large brick patio and fireplace just feet from the lakeshore! Have a boat? No worries, tie up to one of two private docks! Great for fishing too! Included with rental is use of two kayaks and a canoe to go explore the lake. (Please note: Due to low water flow in the area, swimming is not advisable due to weeds, but there is a perfect swimming beach at the park one block away) Blazing fast Wi-Fi included along with Netflix included on all Smart TV's. Lockbox for 24-hour checkin available. We will do some pre-shopping for several grocery items upon request on stays longer than 3-days. Kitchen is fully stocked for all cooking needs including a pizza maker, blender, pots & pans, Crock-Pot, 12-cup coffee maker and french press. Washer and Dryer available for use as well as an iron and ironing board. Linens, shampoos and soaps are all included. Summer Notes: We offer a 24' pontoon for rent. Nightly rate of $125/night. FYI - It's not super fancy, nor fast, but works great for leisurely enjoying the lake, rivers, beaches and dining establishments. Winter Notes: We have partnered with a local sporting goods store to offer pre-rental of skiing and snowboarding gear. No more waiting in lines! Let us know what you need to rent and we will coordinate the drop-off and pick-up of your rental gear. It will be here and ready for you upon check-in! First time in the area? Looking to find a new place? Don’t fret! We have put together a fantastic local guide to help you pick out some unique experiences and food venues.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful experience!
Clean, had everything and more that we imagined. Plan to become a regular.

5/5 Excellent

Spacious home with wonderful views of the lake
Our stay was great! The house was plenty big with two levels of outdoor space and the views of the water were awesome. Rented the pontoon for a couple of days and enjoyed exploring the lake.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay!
Bob's house is one of the best we have ever rented. Everything we could have possibly needed was available and the location can't be beat. Great access to the lake/river, plenty of nearby hiking, and plenty of space to spread out & relax.

5/5 Excellent

What a great escape
This property is amazing! The bedrooms are a good size. Washer and dryer are super convenient. The bar and sauna were always being used. The owners could not have been nicer! This was our first time using VRBO and we got so lucky with this property. We did go hiking and to the beach but you could honestly stay just in the house for the whole week and never get bored!

5/5 Excellent

The place is incredible and the pictures don’t do it justice! Plenty of space for a little bit larger groups. Gorgeous all day views from the deck. The basement is the highlight of the property. 4 televisions, a wet bar, patio with a grill right off of the dining area, 4 gaming consoles and a fireplace. It’s amazing! We had a blast on the pontoon and Trails End bar was a gread destination. The cherry on top of our whole stay though was the hospitality and helpfulness of the owner, Bob. Stand up guy and extremely easy going. He was very informative while explaining everything and even cracked a cold one with us as he took the time to chat and get to know us a bit. Hands down one of the better stays I’ve had anywhere.
