Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this home the last two year in Sept for a Viking game with sibling. It is a wonderful home with all the amenities, comfortable beds, high quality linens, and pillows. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook meals. There are plenty of places inside and out to socialize with a large group. I would recommend this house to anyone that is looking for a large house for a family vacation. We have made many memories in this home and are hoping to make it a yearly vacation spot.

One of the best weekend vacations you can take

  • 5 of 5

This house is really amazing - the living spaces, the dog house, the hot tub, and the lake - it's all beautiful. The house is in a great location and the lake was quiet, even over Labor Day weekend. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again soon. Additionally, Tom was great at answering questions and the gift basket provided was very sweet and generous. I wouldn't have changed a thing.

Fantastic vacation beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for my wife’s 70th birthday attended by 3 adult children plus spouses and 5 grandkids (13 people). The house was large enough for everyone to sleep comfortably and to congregate or to have private space indoors and out. There was plenty to do: kayaks, paddleboards, swimming off the dock, pool table, darts, hottub that was hot, video, bikes, volleyball court, firepit, beautiful places to sit high up overlooking the river. The house was well equipped with plenty of towels, tableware, etc. The owners were very responsive to our needs - when we asked they bought a coffee grinder and a pack-n-play for our infant grandson and delivered them to the house. One day a lightning storm took out the pump for the water well. The owner responded to our call immediately and got it fixed in about 4 hours, which was remarkable for late Friday afternoon. Quiet neighborhood, fantastic views of river sunsets, bald eagle and osprey live nearby and fly by several times a day.

Beautiful River Home and View

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting homes on VRBO for an annual family get away for years and could not have been happier with our St. Croix rental. The home is laid out very well and suited our 3 generation family just fine. The home's high end finishes and renter minded considerations made the day-to-day living very pleasant. The walk down to the river is quite a few steps, however the view from the house/ deck is so pretty we found ourselves spending a majority of our time there as opposed to on the beach/ dock.. We would definitely recommend to others and are considering booking again!

Spectacular home and setting

  • 5 of 5

We gathered here on the scenic St. Croix River as three generations of family and could not have been happier with our choice. The home comfortably accomodated our large group, including older folks who didn't want to climb stairs to their bedroom (one BR/Bath on main floor). Bathrooms are beautifully updated, terrific laundry space on 2nd floor. Playstation systems in main house and Dog House were much appreciated. We used the beach volleyball court which is soft and clean. There are about 80 steps down to the river (be aware) but that didn't slow many of us down, as we frequently used the kayaks, SUPs, and did some swimming and fishing off the dock. Kitchen was one of the best equipped. Appreciated that the many light switches were labeled. One minute drive to small grocery at gas station. Hudson, WI is charming to shop and walk. Highly recommend and would stay here again.
