Rocky Glen Condo - Forest Nest in the Baraboo Bluffs

Lakefront condo with kitchen and balcony
One bit of change advised me by Vrbo:
Vrbo now collects from you the Wisconsin State and Sauk County and Town of Merrimac tax of 12.5%.
The taxes are on the room rate only...per night.
Unit 4 is perched amongst a canopy of oak and birch trees - coffee on the balcony in the company of leaves and branches over 2-stories from the ground! Unit 4 is one of eight condominiums in a building nestled amongst a mature birch/oak forest with glimpses over the Lake Wisconsin valley. Casual, whimsical, bright furnishing. Italian ceramic floor in bath. New step-in rainfall shower. Woodburning stove insert in the original, beautiful, stone fireplace. Small firepit outside for quiet summer/fall eves; or hearty-folks roasting s'mores in winter.
Lovely, oiled-teakwood laminate floors LR and Hall - new faux-wood laminate in kitchen and bedrooms. You may find yourself resting on a pillowcase embroidered by my Cornish grandmother; or snuggled under a quilt made of squares of men's suit material; or find pencil drawings sent from the trenches of WWI from grandpa Pengelly (Tom) to grandma Pengelly (Olivia) in Cornwall.
Poke about...little surprises all over.
AND...and whole bass fiddle case of books presiding over the living room!

Wildlife sightings - deer, turkey, raccoon, owl, and birds of all sorts fly over or walk through these remarkable surrounds. Marvelous earthrise and earthsets. I think the trees up here talk.

Parfrey's Glen official entrance is a 20-minute walk away. Devil's Lake is a 10-minute ride. Devil's Head Ski/Golf Resort is 200 yards down Bluff Road. Quaint Merrimac FREE ferry (seasonal). Cascade Mountain Ski/Snowboarding or Wollersheim Winery/Sauk City - 20-minute ride. Attraction notebook available in unit.

There are several new distilleries under construction in Baraboo...and Vintage Brewery is up and going in nearby Sauk City/Prairie du Sac area.

Plenty of QUIET. Noise restriction after 11p. You could write your book here! Remarkable views. Friendly condo neighbors.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful property
We enjoyed our stay. The condo is clean and comfortable. The location is great for nearby hiking.
Stayed 3 nights in Nov 2021

5/5 Excellent

great kitchen & bathroom amenities, cozy fireplace
Kitchen was well stocked with a large variety of pots, pans, casserole dishes, cookie sheets, measuring cups, crock pots for many different cooking projects. We enjoyed sitting by the wood burning stove with our extended family after a hiking at Devil's Lake. We enjoyed all soaps and shower heads in the bathroom! We wished there were bunk beds for our teen & tween, who decided argue and not share the queen sized bed.
