Merrimac house description

You'll feel at home the minute you walk into this comfortable home starting with a combined kitchen/living room, two generous bedrooms and a full bath. The master bedroom offers a queen bed and the second bedroom has two double beds. On the lower level you'll find another family room, a twin bed and full bath. A double size inflatable bed is available if needed.

Close to everything, from this location you can enjoy many popular Wisconsin seasonal amenities; historic Baraboo featuring the Circus World Museum, Devils Lake State Park, Wollersheim Winery, hiking, the Madison area, The House on the Rock, the indoor water park mecca Wisconsin Dells or if gaming is your thing the Ho Chunk Casino awaits.

Tucked among the pine trees with a view of Lake Wisconsin, the house features a wrap around deck with outdoor dining space, (seasonal), complete with a gas grill and a fantastic view of the bright Wisconsin stars.

Ski, Ski, Ski! Only a short five minute drive and you're at Devils Head front door ready to hit the slopes. And, with Cascade Ski Area just around the mountain, you have plenty of runs to satisfy any ski appetite.

                      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 almost 20 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, golf, winter skiing and snow tubing. This is a great year round 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.
