About Carrie Karl

We live in Naperville, IL

Carrie Karl purchased this house in 2007

Why Carrie Karl chose Lake Wisconsin

A mere three hour drive, this location is easy to get to from Chicagoland and well worth the trip! We have owned property in the Lake Wisconsin area for 20 years and love the seclusion yet convenience to many attractions, the free ferry, the bright Wisconsin stars and the stress free living.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the proximity to all the attractions in the area; The Dells, Wineries, Devils Head State Park, lots of hiking, golf, winter skiing and snow tubing. This is a great year round vacation destination with plenty to do within a short drive. It is a very quiet and serene area with a laid back lifestyle. Visits here provide a definite opportunity to relax and unwind.

Wonderful Home in an awesome area!

  • 5 of 5

Directions to the home were spot on. Once we arrived we were pleasantly surprised at how pretty the exterior of the home and landscaping was. Once we had a chance to look around the interior of the home we were even happier. The home is very nicely decorated. Both of the upstairs bedrooms are nice and roomy. Not only were there ceiling fans, each room had another fan that we could use if we wanted to. Beds were all comfortable including the twin bed in the basement. The bathrooms are both good size and had everything we needed from toilet paper to nice fluffy towels and air freshener. The home had a few games sitting around that we enjoyed playing in the evenings. The deck is gorgeous & huge! We used the gas grill and were impressed with how well it worked. Nothing like some well grilled burgers from The Meat Market in Baraboo while sitting out on the deck enjoying the lake view. Neighbors were all super friendly and we enjoyed visiting with them. The Air conditioner kept the house comfortable for us the entire weekend. We used Moon Valley Resort to dock our boat in Lake Wisconsin. It is only about a 8 minute drive from the house. There is a state ramp right beside the marina to put your boat into Lake Wisconsin. The owner, Carrie, was easy to work with and quickly responded to any and all questions from the beginning of the rental process until after we headed home.

Overall I would highly recommend this home to anyone interested in staying near Lake Wisconsin, Baraboo or Devils Lake. It is in a nice quiet location with no traffic at all. A million times better than any hotel room would ever be.

Peaceful retreat

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. It is so peaceful sitting out on the deck and enjoying the sounds of the birds chirping. We sat out on the deck in the mornings and again in the evenings for grilling. Bugs were not an issue. The house was set up nice and was plenty of room for 2 couples. Lots to do and see in the area. A must while in the area is to go to Devil's Head State Park and Circus World Museum. Go out for the day and come back and enjoy the deck in the evening!!! We made breakfast in the AM and grilled in the evening so unsure of restaurants in the area. There is a great meat market in Baraboo that has everything you need for grilling. We do recommend this property and hope to get back to the area again in the near future.

Perfect Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and larger than it appears in the pictures. The owner was quick to respond to emails and an easy person with whom to work. We rented the house for a ski weekend and the proximity to the ski resorts was ideal. We would absolutely consider renting this house again in the future. It was an excellent experience from start to finish.

Christmas getaway

  • 5 of 5

We wanted quick getaway after Christmas and the house was great! Fit our family of 5 (2 20 somethings and a teen) perfectly. Very close to Devil's Head for skiing and some nice restaurants. House had everything we needed and was very clean! Will definitely keep in mind in the future--there is great Lake view and access as well.
