Property description


Completed in 2010 - enjoy beautiful, secluded luxury. Located between Fennimore and Montfort, WI, the Cabin at CastleRockCreek is waiting for you. 3 sleeping areas with 1 King in Master BR, 3 twins in 2nd bedroom (incl. trundle -- can be bunked or separated) and a lofted living room with a super comfortable American Leather 'Comfort Sleeper' queen convertible (no bars!). Sleeps 7 in comfort. 1.5 baths incl. large tile shower. Full Kitchen w/ new appliances and cookware. Lofted Living Room incl. High Def. TV w/ Blue-Ray DVD, movie library, and Wii gaming console w/ games for rainy days. Also includes board games, poker set, and a small reference library. Wireless Broadband Internet and Central Air-Conditioning provided as well.

Property is located on Castle Rock Creek -- direct access to a renowned blue ribbon trout stream -- and is tucked away in the woods overlooking a scenic valley. Huge deck, covered outdoor areas and immediately adjacent to over 240 acres of wooded DNR ground assures privacy and recreational opportunities including fishing, hunting, hiking, bird-watching, cycling etc. Popular cycling routes for the avid cycler (or motorcycle enthusiast) wind through the hills and ATV trails and routes are not far away. Hunters enjoy opportunities for trophy deer and turkey and fisherman can enjoy miles and miles of one of the most productive trout fisheries in the nation.

Enjoy fantastic views of the scenic cliffs of Castle Rock from the kitchen window. Fall foliage is spectacular, as are the wildflowers and area wildlife viewing opportunities. For the non-sportsman, enjoy the laid back pace of the Amish and farm countryside. Savor the peace and quiet with coffee and a good book on the deck while listening to the burbling stream below. Sightseers will enjoy Spring Green -- a scenic (40 min.) drive. Enjoy Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin, The American Players Theatre, House on the Rock, award winning golf, etc. Both Dodgeville and Mineral Point, WI are even closer (less than 30 min.) with fabulous restaurants and historic downtown shopping districts and art galleries.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are Illinois farmers and have 3 young children who love adventure. In our spare time we love to hike, fish, read, play games and relax as a family!

Why the Owner Chose Fennimore:
The Driftless Area (an unglaciated corner of Southwest WI reminiscent of Upstate New York) is known for its scenic, wooded valleys, spring fed streams and rocky hilltops. It is a unique part of the country -- very different than much of the midwest -- and for those in the know, a special place to get away without having to go too far.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our cabin was purchased unfinished and in some disrepair in 2009. Thanks to my architect wife's keen eye, some elbow grease and a desire to create something special we remodeled our cabin into the luxurious hideaway we have today. We enjoy sharing our little slice of heaven with others who appreciate the opportunity to slow down and enjoy the finer things in life. This is not a rustic cabin. While it is certainly off the beaten path, it is also modern, well-kept and luxuriously appointed. We appreciate guests who treat our cabin as their own home and have been very pleased to find that nearly all of our guests do so.
