Condo - 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (could sleep 4+)
Me comfy in the living room - fireplace blazing nearby and watching something wonderful on PBS...probably the Dicken's series...what teriffic tear-jerkers!
Lesleigh purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Lesleigh chose Merrimac
How could I NOT have fallen in love with this place!? (I didn't mean to...it was a first project for me/my chef brother.) Although not a skiier or golfer, I AM a walker and I just step out the door and I'm nearly in the woods...AND stepping out on the balcony puts you eye--level with tree tops. Only squirrels, cranes, turkey vultures, racoons, and lovely little birds get a better view.
What makes this Condo unique
Peace - to watch the trees 'converse' with each other - the neverending changes framed by each window to the forest - the very occasional concert (Los Lobos a several several years ago) or fireworks from Devil's Head Resort on New Year's Eve - sitting around the firepit on a summer or fall evening - the water from a quartzite well in the basement (it bypasses the water softening system otherwise required for the building) - staying up the nights male owls joust in the air above our parking lot (I always think of the Quiddich field from Harry Potter.)

The most perfect vacation getaway rental
Staying at Lesleigh's beautiful place was truly a dream come true.
The four of us went to Devil's Head to get away from the noisy city and spend three days hiking and reconnecting with nature. Lesleigh's condo is located perfectly right by numerous hiking trails, in a gorgeous spot that allowed us to have tea on the balcony in the morning and star gaze at night.
The condo has everything one would need, and it is so reflective of Lesleigh's soul that we felt like it was our home, too. She met us in person as we arrived, and, apart from showing us around the place, we ended up having some amazing conversations about our journeys and the answers we all seek. We could have stayed and chatted all day, but the hiking was calling us! :)
From making food in her kitchen every day, to long soulful conversations in the living room by the fireplace at night, to reading some rare and mind-expanding books she has at the condo, to aromatherapy options in the bathroom, to restorative sleep in the comfy bed - this has truly been the best home-away (and competitors' sites) find ever.
I can not wait to come back!
Lovely Getaway, tucked away near the Glen
Host: Lesleigh was warm and welcoming, providing us with all the information we needed. She quickly answered our questions throughout the weekend.
Place: Coffee on the balcony, overlooking the forest was a major highlight. Sparkling clean, working WIFI, working fireplace, interesting reads, comfy beds, great shower, lots of amenities, including cooking utensils/gear. We loved it so much, we want to live there!
Location: Very convenient! Short walk to the magical Parfreys Glen, quick drive to Devils Lake and the Ice Age trail.
This condo is such a wonderfully healing space! There is so much around the home to inspire conversation and well-being; especially the beautiful trees that span the many windows and really neat fireplace. We will definitely be coming back here!
10! Wow!...Sorry to be SO late responding!
Looking forward to seeing you again!
Love Rocky Glen, Thank you Lesleigh!
Great place and Lesleigh is very nice and accommodating.
Hoping to see you again...perhaps next time there won't be a snowstorm to beat enroute home and you can stay into the evening.
Thanks for being here!
Wonderful property, charming decoration, next to hiking and skiing
Charmingly decorated and equipped as a home someone could and did live in. Comfortable furniture, plenty of space. Very relaxing after a day playing out in the cold to come back and have a fire in the fireplace. The owner was dedicated and available to make sure we had a good stay. I would love to come back for another stay and recommend it to others.
Hope, too, to see you here again!...MANY thanks for patience (and Lucy help) whilst I struggled to understand my newish 'smart TV' and new internet vendor!
'Til next time!...ANY season!
