                                                      Nice quiet getaway

                                                      The house is tucked away on a hill with woods in the back, so it is a nice quiet secluded place for a weekend getaway. It really does look like grandmas house inside, if you like that kind of decor you will feel right at home. There's plenty of room and furnishings, along with a fully stocked kitchen. Unfortunately we went on a very cold week, but there is plenty of yard for dogs to roam around. The one negative is that with an older house you get that somewhat musty smell, but we just went to the store and bought some additional air fresheners so that took care of it. Great location, just minutes from downtown Baraboo and Devil's Lake. Thank you Gretchen, we had a wonderful time.

                                                      Great Little Cottage in the Woods

                                                      Granny's Cottage was exactly what we needed for our trip. We were staying for the weekend for a wedding, needed somewhere close to Baraboo, and comfortable for 4 people and 2 small dogs. The living room area was great for relaxing between events, kitchen was great for our breakfasts and late night snacks, and the beds were generally comfortable. Loved having the updated washer/dryer to dry towels after showers, and the dogs enjoyed exploring the huge yard. Given the opportunity, we would definitely stay again.

                                                      I just had an opportunity to stay in my future getaway home. Looking to make a winter trip.

                                                      This property was exactly what we were looking for. It was in a secluded area and away from the urban lifestyle we were accustomed to. We had a chance to unwind in the evening and enjoy barn fires and observe the wildlife in the area. The night skies were a breathtaking site as the skies were lit up with stars and the sounds of owls. The cottage was equipped with everything that we needed and more. Very good choice for the family. Will be back next year.

                                                      Home away from home!

                                                      We stayed for a week with our children (ages 6 and 2) and the family dog! The house was clean and provided most everything we needed outside personal items and food. The location was perfect - we were able to make plenty of day trips to the local zoo, Devil's Lake beach, Ringling Bros Circus Museum, Wisconsin Dells, and enjoyed a few quiet days at home - the kids on the swing set or working their way through Disney movies available from the cottage, and a nice BBQ in the evening! The local shops were excellent and we found everything we needed and more. It was so comfortable and relaxing - a real home away from home!
