                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We have been enjoying our summer home since it has been completed with our children, family and friends. There is Drews Tavern at the Dam- Buffalo Lake Lodge on C, Granite Falls Supper Club & JT's Causeway in Packwaukee within 10 minute drive for drinks and great local grub

                  Why the Owner Chose Wisconsin Dells:
                  Only 3 hours from our home in Glenview, Illinois. Town of Montello is only a 5 minute drive and has full super market, gas, movie theater and several great restaurants. Yet only a short drive to the Dells attractions but away for the tourism. Several restaurants in town with way better prices than the Dells

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  Early morning walks along the properties 270' of shore and the fantastic sunsets each night are sure to decompress your busy lifestyle
