Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: LeeAnn's grandfather built a cottage on Pike Lake in the late 1920's, which later passed to LeeAnn's father. She spent her childhood summers at the lake. When an opportunity arose to purchase the property next to her parents', we purchased that property and built a year round home there. Now that we live here year round, Sunday night is our favorite evening when all the weekenders have returned home and we have the entire week to enjoy the beauty of Pike Lake.
Why the Owner Chose Wausau: 'Stolen Moments Cottage' was built in 2008 as a future cottage for our children to be able to spend time at the lake with our family. We have lots of memories of holidays--including Memorial Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving, and Christmas-spent at the lake with our extended families.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: 'Stolen Moments' was designed and built as a labor of love. It contains arts and crafts features with beautiful custom built window seats and quality throughout. Decorated with new, vintage, and antique furniture, it has wonderful amenities for a cozy retreat, romantic getaway, or family vacation home.
