Creekside is a fully-furnished, modern & immaculate, family-owned guesthouse located on a wooded hillside above a crystal-clear trout stream. It's an ideal choice for a 2 night get-away or - better yet - a weekly, long-term rental. We even let you bring your beloved K9(s) - why leave them behind?
Bring your fly rods and fish for our Native Brook, wild Brown or wily Rainbow Trout, or your canoes and kayaks so you can ride the currents, or maybe a tube or two for easy riding. Wade a few minutes in shallow water downstream and there's a wide, deep - typically 8 to 10 foot deep - 'swimming hole,' where you and your loved ones, and your K9s(!) can play and swim in the water. Most years, we even have perfect-for-sun bathing, warm-and-relaxing sandbar beaches you can stretch out on, And we leave out lawn chairs for you to use if you want to sit up and read, or 'do' a picnic, or ...... just sit and stare off into space without being interrupted by anyone or anything.
If you're a hunter, our location can't be beat. We're right in what's called the "Deer Capital of Wisconsin." Between the Jackson County Forest lands and Black River State Forest, there's over 188,000 acres of public hunting opportunities. We're just a 10 minute walk away from 1000s of acres of County Forest land - the perfect habitat for white tail deer, wild turkey, squirrels, possum and rabbits - and an 11 mile drive to the state forest. For State of WI Dept of Natural Resources info, go to the state website: www.dnr.wi.gov and for Jackson County, follow the Forestry & Parks department link off: www.co.jackson.wi.us
We've dedicated a whole acre of land around the house just for our guests to use, so Creekside's a very quiet, very private get-away location for all ages. Yet we're an easy drive to state & county lakes, parks, trails, golfing, shopping & dining. You can go scuba diving at Wazee Lake, try your luck at Majestic Pines Casino, golf at a great course right in Black River Falls or walk the 4 mile Heritage Trail around the city.
Our road is part of a Township-designated ATV route that links right up to the 235 mile Jackson/Clark County ATV/Dual-Sport Motorcycle Trail. We provide safe, off-road parking for your rigs & trailers close to house, with NO 'extra-vehicle' charges. You can get on your rigs at the house, take one of our driveways out to Dodge Road, then drive straight to the Trail 6 section of the two-County system. Do note: the Township ATV route we're on isn't shown on the printed and online ATV maps Jackson County provides! Ask us to email you the current Township ATV route map so you can see exactly where we're located.
The house is a modern, two bedroom, two full bath, fully-furnished mobile home that's open Mid April thru the first Monday in January, and comes complete with central heat & A/C, a well-appointed kitchen, laundry room w/washer & dryer + laundry soap & dryer sheets, bed and bath linens plus comfortable, clean furniture in every room. DISH 250 Channel TV Programming and WIFI internet service is provided free-of-charge. Five guests can sleep comfortably on beds in the house. If additional overnight guests have been approved, there's a full-size sofa bed in the living room plus a full-size ('fit for two') Lane sofa bed down in the furnished screen house - open for use mid-Spring thru September. Just about the only things you'll need to bring to Creekside are cell phones, big beach towels and extra large bath towels (if you prefer them) charcoal and flashlights. We'll make up the beds for you (unless you'd rather bring your own linens) or - if time is short between bookings - we'll leave out sheets sets for you to use.
Talking about the screen house: Pretend you're roughing it when you're not!: Guests who want relax 'outside' without ever worrying about bugs are going to love our unique 12 x 14 framed screen house we've named The Bird House. We built it close enough to the creek so you can watch the water flow by and listen to the 'water music' without even getting out of your chair. Read, play cards, get caught up on family news, bring down a picnic basket from the house, watch your spouse fly-fish the creek, or your kids play in the water. Work on crafts, or just sit down there and and do nothing. We provide the pillows, blankets, comforter and sheets for the sleeper sofa. Do note that the guesthouse and The Bird House aren't handicapped-accessible or child-proofed.
Smoking isn't allowed in the guesthouse, but it is allowed on the open entry porch, on the decks and in The Bird House (cigarettes only there.)
Our base rates apply to up to 5 overnight guests without pets. If additional overnight guests are approved, an additional $20 per nite per person (3 years and older) will be charged. If you're bringing a K9 (or 2 or 3!) see our pet rates, rules and regulations below.
We've already included the nasty 5.5% state and local taxes here in all our rates.
It's a 2 nite minimum rental throughout the year with the following exceptions:
3 nite minimum over holidays (if any portion of the holiday itself is rented): Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, New Year's Eve or New Year's Day;
3 nite minimum rental if any portion of the last full weekend in September is rented;
4 nite minimum rental if any portion of November 20th thru and including November 30th is rented.
Children are always welcome but must be kept under adult supervision at all times when they're in the house, on the property and in the water. Just ask and we'll be glad to provide a highchair, pop-up sleeper, 'activity chair,' baby tub, diaper pail and soft play toys for your little ones. When they get to the outdoor-game age, we provide lots of water and land toys, balls, badminton rackets, birds and net, horseshoes, even croquet and Bocce ball sets.
Dog(s) are very welcome! A $100 refundable pet damage deposit is required for your first visit and modest nightly pet fees are charged for up to 3 K9s, with no weight-limit. Those additional fee(s) are: for two night stays: $15 per night, one dog; $20 per night, 2 dogs and $25 per night for 3 dogs. If staying 3 nights or more, it's $12 per night for 1 dog, $17 for 2 dogs and $22 for 3 dogs. Ask us to send you our Pet Rules and Regulations so you know what's allowed and required of our pet owners and their pets.
Enjoy all the activities in this area of Wisconsin while you're here, Spring Summer, Fall and early Winter, or just soak up the R & R right at Creekside. No other renters or rental units here, so there's none of the noise associated with water parks or large RV/camper sites where you're elbow-to-elbow with other vacationers. The owners do live just downstream from the guesthouse, but you'll never see them unless they're watering the gorgeous gardens surrounding Creekside or you need their help with something.
Key in. Sigh. Relax. Enjoy!
We're just two hours from Madison, 70 minutes from the Wisconsin Dells, 1 hour from La Crosse, or Eau Claire, about 3 hours from Wausau, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Rochester & Dubuque IA and four hours from the north Chicago suburbs. We're a proud member of the Black River Area Chamber of Commerce and are featured on their website.

A truly unique 3 season get-away! Escape for 2 nights, 2 weeks (or longer!) for a lifetime of memories for everyone in your group. Located 9 miles southeast of Black River Falls WI, in the pine forests of southeastern Jackson County, we're just down the road from 1000s of acres of undeveloped county forest land. The woods team with birds and wildlife, the air is clean, crisp and quiet, and there's very limited public access to the lovely trout stream below Creekside and its neat 'swimming hole' and sand beaches.
If you're in the mood for dining, shopping, antiquing, boating, hiking, biking or to go to a water park, golf course or casino, that's all just 15 minutes away in Black River Falls.
Bring your fly rod and fish our stream for wild brown trout, native brook and rainbow; take a short drive to canoe and kayak the Black River or fish the Black River, Lake Arbutus and flowages for muskie, walleye and smallmouth bass; hunt for whitetail deer, ruffed grouse, wild turkey, ducks and geese; ice skate year-round at the Black River Falls rink; enjoy prime scuba diving at Wazee Lake - Wisconsin's deepest lake; hike, bike or even bring your horses along and ride 20 miles of horseback riding trails at the 68,000 acre Black River State Forest; experience the beauty of Ho Chunk culture at their Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend pow-wows or try your luck at the Ho-Chunk Casino!
Golf: The 18 hole Skyline Golf Course in Black River Falls is a golfer's dream course - laid out over acres of undulating and wooded hills. The back 9 is especially scenic and well-designed as it carves its way through a beautiful oak and pine forest.
Do as much as you want or as little as it takes to rest, relax and get rid of the stress you've been carrying around. Stop looking at your watch or waiting for the phone to ring. You might even read a book or two. Or do nothing at all. Your peace and privacy is guaranteed. That's what a real vacation is all about.
We're open Mid April through the first week of January, accept MasterCard and Visa and welcome your family dog(s) with open arms. Call us at 715-284-5651 if you're interested in renting other nights between Jan 6th 2016 and April 15th 2016. The rates would be the same as shown in April 2016 for up to 5 overnight guests without pets. Nightly K9 fees are: for 2 night stays, 1 dog = $15 per night, 2 dogs = $20 per night, 3 dogs = $25 per night. For 3 or more nights the fees are: 1 dog = $12 per night 2 dogs = $17 per night, 3 dogs = $22 per night.
When you compare what you've learned about Creekside to what you've read about other rental sites in our area, we'd like to suggest that you double check the following: do their rates already include the 5.5% state and local taxes like ours do, or do you have to pay that additional $ before you can check-in? Is the water so clean you can drink it from the tap or will you have to bring along bottled water? We test our artesian well water every year to make sure it's safe for you to drink - so leave those fancy filters and expensive bottled waters at home! And, finally, ask the property managers if they're licensed by the State of WI to operate their rental unit(s). They'd need to pass a rigorous yearly inspection by a Health and Family Services inspector, like we do, to be properly licensed. And, boy, do those inspectors check everything to make sure you're coming into a home that's clean, safe and properly maintained for you and everyone you bring along with you to Creekside.
Please call us at: 715-284-5651 with any questions you might have and for more info and pictures of this beautiful little corner of heaven!
