About Leean R.

We are lifelong Wisconsin natives and know this area very well having vacationed here our entire lives. Growing up on a farm, our vacation destination needed to be close by. After marrying and having children we again chose to keep our vacation home close. Our two oldest children are in high school and our youngest in middle school. They are very active and in many sports. Because of this, we are unable to use the cabin as much as we would like. We also love to explore other areas and vacation throughout the country and hopefully beyond. Listing our cabin has allowed us to put that income towards vacation lodging elsewhere. We are also actively looking to swap property rental for something near Yellowstone National Park (WY) & Colorado in June 2013, Harrisburg,PA Oct 2013. Always interested in visiting new locations. If you have a place and want to visit WI, let me know.

Leean R. purchased this house in 2001

Why Leean R. chose Friendship

We purchased the land in 1998. We built the cabin in 2001. The boys hunt in fall and we spend many hours on Castle Rock Lake boating, tubing, fishing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding and skiing. There's 8 restaurant/bars on the lake. Many have live bands on the outside deck and beach volleyball. There are county and state parks all around offering excellent hiking and walking trails. We also enjoy being close to the snowmoble and ATV routes. Of course, there is always a camp fire at night. So much activity during the day yet a place and time to relax when we want to.

What makes this house unique

Our proximity to Castle Rock Lake, Wisconsin Dells and world reknowned Northern Bay Golf Course makes this the perfect place to be. Our 'owner built' home has all the amenities of home with 5 bedrooms and 2 full baths. All on 10 wooded acres. Willing and eager to trade with your property rental.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Our family had an outstanding experience at the Friendship property. The kitchen is fully stocked and the large family room which opens to the eating space and kitchen is perfect for gathering a large group. While we visited in winter, this property has so many spectacular amenities for summer outdoor gatherings. I highly recommend this property. The owner was very easy to work with and it is in a secluded area just minutes from a state park great for summer and winter hiking. We would definitely come back to this property.

The cabin was very nice and easily fit our group of hunters. The sleeping accommodations worked out excellent and the grounds were large and private. Will be back next year!

Relaxation in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters, Mom and cousins had such a relaxing long weekend at this house in the woods. We used the fire pit every night and there was plenty of cut wood that we found a short walk away in the woods. The owners were very prompt in answering any questions that we had and the sleeping accommodations were plenty for all 12 of us. My Mom uses a walker and had no trouble navigating the hallways and bathrooms and joining us on the large deck, thank-you so much for a great weekend!
