Castle Rock Lake house description

This House is on the site where one of the first houses in the area was built circa 1940's. It was an old stucco house with no indoor plumbing and a wood stove. My Grandmother bought it along with the 40 acres that surrounded it in the 1960's from an elderly woman that was fond of cigars. A new house was built next to it in 1974. The old stucco house was eventually tore down in1998 and buried on the site.

The Newer Home now on 3 1/2 acres, has 2 living rooms. Upstairs living room has 2 large picture windows that have a scenic overlook of 2 ponds. Deer and turkey are present quite frequently in the mornings and evenings. There are small fish to catch and release along with plenty of frogs and turtles. There is a paver/patio area with Chiminea and Tiki's to relax and barbecue. The pavers were saved from when the old brick (paved) courthouse street in Mauston was tore up and black topped. There is also a path that takes you to a private campsite nestled in the woods (firewood included).

Close to Everything: There is a trail that leads to a private campfire site that has huge Oak logs honed into fireside benches.
The house is short walk to Castle Rock lake (.43 mi), which has multiple taverns, eateries and boat landings. It is about 9 miles from Mauston 9 miles from New Lisbon and 11 miles to Necedah. It is roughly 30 miles from the Wisconsin Dells. I began this rental with the idea to have the LOWEST RATES with the most to offer so more families could afford to have a getaway vacation. If you would like to stay at our home, please email or call and I will make the arrangement's!

Plenty of Room and Privacy: This home sits on 3 1/2 acres with trees, paths, and lounging areas. If your looking for a true 'getaway' without having to be right next to other homes and campers but still be right where all the Lake activities are then you won't find better than this! Snowmobile trails are accessible right from the property and a golf course is a few miles, so whether your here for summer fun or winter SNOWMOBILING and ICE FISHING, there is no place better around Castle Rock Lake.
