About the property

Located 25-30 minutes from the Dells, you can enjoy all the fun the Dells have to offer, including water parks, scenic boat tours, casinos, mini-golf, zipline tours, horse drawn wagon rides, family and fine dining, outlet malls, go-carts, candy and ice cream shoppes, concert venues and more.

Activities that are less than 15 minutes from our house include horse-back riding, antique shopping, flea markets and golf. There are canoe and kayak trips down the Mecan River. An Amish community is just 20 minutes away with wonderful crafts and baked goods.

If you need to take some time off from all the activities, read a good book from the deck overlooking the water or on the private beach area at the water's edge.

About Rich Murren

We grew up in Illinois, but have spent the best parts of our lives here on Williams Lake. Our 2 children grew up learning to catch fish, frogs and lightening bugs here. Now, their children are learning the same things and it is a wonderful experience for all of us.

Rich Murren purchased this house in 2002

Why Rich Murren chose Central

We built a house on Williams Lake about 25 years ago. A few years later, we purchased another property on this wonderful, hidden treasure of a lake. The plan was always to build a house for others to be able to experience the peaceful serenity of what lake living brings. 10 years ago, we built Seven Pines for just that purpose.

What makes this house unique

The view when you wake up in the morning is a great way to start your day. Just sit up, stretch your arms, look out the window, see the lake and all the pine trees surrounding the house. You might be woken up by the calls of the sandhill cranes or just the peace and quiet of the area. After having breakfast on the deck, a leisurely rowboat trip around the lake could be in order. At night, when you are roasting marshmallows around the campfire, listen to the sounds of nature surrounding you. On the days when it might be raining, you can go up the spiral staircase to the loft, where there are games for all ages along with an air hockey table.

Relaxing and leave changing mecca.

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous time on a quiet, tranquil lake with family. The Seven Pines cabin is clean, close to Princeton and Montello, great places to shop for antiques, and the added bonus is the lake. Both of the owners are very helpful and will make any stay a pleasurable one. I highly recommend Seven Pines to anyone that needs to just get away for some r and r.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review of the house. We are happy to be able to provide a place for families to enjoy without the hustle and bustle of waterparks, yet the hustle and bustle is a short drive away if that is your choice for the day. Then, it is great to come back to the lake and relax with the family by the campfire. Thanks again and we hope to see you again in the future!

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We have a very enjoyable weekend here. There were 5 adults and 2 children (ages 10 and 2). We had plenty of room. The kids loved the loft. We all enjoyed the fire pit. We used the rowboat quite a bit. We also fished off the dock. We caught quite a few but not big enough to keep. It was just fun being able to catch something. If we come back to this area we would definitely rent this again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review of our house. I totally agree that it is a very relaxing, stress free way to spend your time. Sorry that the bigger fish were not hanging around your fishing pole...next time you come to the lake we will try to arrange for the big fish to make an appearance for you :) Thanks again and we hope to see you in the future!

Quiet, and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Seven Pines. It was very relaxing. It was great to be away from town, but close enough to run after anything you might need. Montello is a pretty little town. I would also recommend the short drive out to the Amish community. All of the baked goods we bought were very good. The Dells were fun, but very busy. It was nice to come back to a nice and quiet cabin after spending the day at the waterpark. We had hoped to catch some bigger fish that were worth cooking, but had no luck. However our whole family were catching little fish one after another. This was nice for our younger boys who aren't patient enough to wait for a good bite. Thank You!

Great Fishing Weekend

  • 4 of 5

What a great place. We booked because of the lake we wanted to make this a fishing weekend. The lake is not deep at all but what a great time we had catching fish. Most were small but perfect for our kids. Did manage to catch a lot of bullheads and a bass before ending our trip. The house is just perfect. It has everything you would need and everything you forgot. My kids made the loft area their own space loved all the games and just having a space to call their own. My kids are already asking when are we going back. Only downfall was the cell service almost none existent. (thank god my husband and I have different carriers otherwise we wouldn't of had any way to contact the world) This was truly a memorable vacation and can't wait to book again. Thank you for everything, hopefully see you next year.

Owner's Response: We are so very happy that your family enjoyed their time at the lake. Perfect place for kids to learn to be "expert" fishermen. It is a peaceful place to end the day after a busy one possibly going to the Dells or wherever you decide to venture to. We have Verizon and the cell phone reception is fine, but recognize that not everyone has Verizon. Hope that it did not cause too much of a problem for you. Thank you again for choosing Seven Pines and we hope to see you all in the future.

Such a good time!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted our 4-year-old granddaughter to have a great time and something she'd remember and we accomplished that for all of us. She kept saying "This is so awesome!" and the rest of us agreed. She especially loved feeding the fish off the dock. Our email to the owner brought an immediate response and a fix, and I was quite happy with his attention. We did drive in to Noah's Ark and to Devil's Head, but we absolutely loved floating around in the warm water in the boat, our inflatable kayak and oversized tube, enjoying each other and some refreshments. A highlight was the most BEAUTIFUL skyful of stars you can see after dark from the dock. COMPLETELY OUT OF THIS WORLD!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review of Seven Pines. We did see you floating around enjoying yourselves as we floated by in our neighbors pontoon boat. What a peaceful time it was for all of us! We would love to see you all come back next year...by that time, the fish will be bigger?? Thank you again for choosing Seven Pines.

Perfect Relaxing Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I came here for a short weekend getaway with some girlfriends for my birthday and we totally loved this place! It was so cute and cozy! We took advantage of the deck, the row boat, and the firepit. We even ventured out into Wisconsin Dells which was only a 30 minute ride. We also visited the town of Montello which is the cutest little town. We really enjoyed our time here and I would highly recommend to anyone. Only thing was we had bad reception and there is no wifi but other than that it was great!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you had a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. I heard that the 4 sandhill cranes that live on the lake were pretty noisy that weekend. Going to the Dells can be an adventure, but it is always nice to come back to the peace and tranquility of the lake. We hope to see you back in the future.
