We wanted quick getaway after Christmas and the house was great! Fit our family of 5 (2 20 somethings and a teen) perfectly. Very close to Devil's Head for skiing and some nice restaurants. House had everything we needed and was very clean! Will definitely keep in mind in the future--there is great Lake view and access as well.

This house exceeded our expectations. IWe were looking for a quiet place to stay, and didn't want to feel crowded in a Dells hotel or pay the price. You get your moneys worth when renting this house, there is plenty of space, easy to get to (Wisconsin roads are great), and close to major attractions. Taking the Merrimac ferry to get there was cool. The property is quiet and you can see stars since it is away from larger cities. I would recommend this house to anyone. This was my first experience with VRBO and it was great. They were really good to work with, reserving and paying was easy. We would stay here again.

This is a very well-kept home in a quiet area just a stone's throw from Lake Wisconsin. I stayed here, w/ my son & sister, for four days in July. The home is nicely shaded w/ trees, and despite the fact that the weather was sunny & hot during the day, the shading from the trees and the proximity to Lake Wisconsin helped keep the house cool and we were very comfortable. The house is well-equipped and comfortable, and everything is in good working order. As another reviewer has stated, the exterior view doesn't quite convey the size, the interior is quite roomy and the finished walkout basement provides additional room for children to spread out and play. It's easy to get to locations such as Madison (25 mins via 113/Merrimac ferry), Devils Head (<10 mins), Baraboo (Circus World Museum & Devils Lake) (15 mins), and Wisconsin Dells (25 mins). Carrie is reliable, responsive, and easy to deal with. We were very glad that we chose this accomodation rather than staying in the overcrowded Dells - this is a great location to relax in the evening, enjoy peace & quiet, and get away from it all. I'd highly recommend it to anyone else looking for a similar getaway.

The house was great! In fact, it exceeded our expectations and was even bigger than it looked on the website (it includes a basement which is quite large!) Reserving was a breeze and the house was clean, comfortable and cozy. I'd certainly recommend!

We rented the house for 4 days, first week of February. It's a quiet street. Everything was perfect (clean and warm). It was nice to talk with the owner. They sent me all the instruction and it was easy to get there. The house is 5-6 min driving to Devil's Head Resort. I will consider referring this house to other friends or rent it again. Thank You.

About the owner: We live in Naperville, IL
Why the Owner Chose Merrimac:
A mere three hour drive, this location is easy to get to from Chicagoland and well worth the trip! We have owned property in the Lake Wisconsin area for over 15 years and love the seclusion yet convenience to many attractions, the free ferry, the bright Wisconsin stars and the stress free living.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy the proximity to all the attractions in the area; The Dells, Wineries, Devils Head State Park, lots of hiking, winter skiing and snow tubing. This is a great vacation destination with plenty to do within a short drive. It is a very quiet and serene area with a laid back lifestyle. Visits here provide a definite opportunity to relax and unwind.
