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 (great pizza & rib-eye sandwiches- Buffalo Lake Lodge on C has best BBQ ribs and buffalo burgers Granite Falls Supper Club in Downtown Montello near the waterfalls has all you can eat fish, chicken & ribs with all the fix-ens every Friday night. JT's Causeway in Packwaukee within 10 minute drive for drinks and great local music

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
