                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: I grew up in central Minnesota, where I always lived on or near a lake and golf course. Many of my years were spent on Green Lake in Spicer, MN, close to Little Crow Country Club. When we are at our condo, the entire family stays well entertained with the lake and golf course on the same property. We have activities here, at Northern Bay for ages 1-100. The memories and experiences are priceless.

                      Why the Owner Chose Castle Rock Lake:
                      We love the fact that Castle Rock Lake is the 4th largest lake in WI, and it has restaurants and gas stations which we can pull up to with our boats. The condo is 200 miles from Chicago as well as 200 miles from Mpls. It is a beautiful drive to the lake; therefore we feel our vacation begins the minute we get into our vehicles. Northern Bay is 30 minutes from Wisconsin Dells and 24 miles from Ho Chunk Casino, so if people want a diversion from the activities at the resort, other activities are located close by.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The first time I came to Northern Bay, I was so surprised to see such an extravagant resort “pop out of nowhere”. Once we settle into our condo, we put our groceries away, and then plan our activities. We never have to use the car, because everything is within walking distance from the condo. We have a replica 18-hole golf course with pro shop, restaurant and bar, large swimming pool, kiddie pool, spa, tennis courts, basketball hoops, Tikki Bar, large groomed beach, marina, trails for biking, hiking, ATV’s, and snowmobiles. The best part of all of this is, if you choose to be with people, you can, but you can also find all the peace and quiet you would want or need. We love it, and we hope you will too!
