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.

Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this home! It was so peaceful and beautiful! We fished right off the dock. The row boat was a lot of fun too! Rich and Mary were wonderful to work with. They responded very quickly to any question we had. We would definitely like to return in the future! Only we would make our visit longer than just a weekend! Thanks so much Rich and Mary!

We had a fantastic time here. Everything was as good or better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for a peaceful little getaway. The house was exactly as we expected or better. The lake was tranquil and excellent for swimming and fishing. The hosts were friendly and accommodating, and the house was very adequately equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the seven pines.

First Wisconsin Vacation for our IL Kids!!!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Seven Pines. The home was clean, bright and cozy. My husband vacationed near this area during his childhood and I spent summers on Lake Beulah at camp. We were very excited to introduce our children to summertime vacationing on a Wisconsin lake. This was one of the easiest and simple vacations we've planned. Lake Williams is beautiful, quaint and full of wildlife. The nearby friendly town of Montello is a wonderful hidden gem. We had an amazing breakfast experience at Sparks Grill. Since we were near the Dells, we took a day trip to Noah's Ark Waterpark. We were close to everything but still felt like we were in own little secluded lake paradise. Our kids, all under 10, enjoyed the internet free time. They LOVED the loft area. They completely bypassed the pull-out coach and twin beds to turn the loft into their own kid’s clubhouse. There were many air hockey tournaments and UNO games played during our stay. Even though it rained 2 of the three nights we were still able to enjoy a wonderful campfire (thanks Murrens for dropping of some dry wood) and star gazing from the dock. Our most favorite activity was fishing. Our littlest, age 4, never fished before, casted his line into the lake and caught a small mouth bass (a small one but still a bass). It was very easy to fish from the dock or the small row boat. Our only suggestions: to trim just a bit of the foliage back to enjoy even more of the breathtaking views of the lake from the deck and possibly add an updated mattress in the master bedroom. Thank you for sharing your property at such a value. These are life long memories that our family will never forget.

Quiet, secluded, great loft

  • 4 of 5

We spent 5 nights here, boating and swimming and enjoying Wisconsin. Being from the East Coast, there were some great Mother Nature surprises - like fireflies and hours-long nighttime thunderstorms! The lake was warm and not too icky for swimming - it was hard to tell from the pictures, but the dock is just below the house (the pictures make the lake look further away than it actually is).

The upper loft had tons of board games and an air hockey table that my boys played for hours. We never even bothered to plug in the TV.

The owners were great to deal with - helpful, kind, responsive and friendly.

It's about 45 minutes to drive to the Dells - which we did one day, and that was enough.

The only negative was the tap water - but I think that is to be expected on a well. There was a smell to the shower water and we just bought bottled water to drink.

We wanted a relaxing vacation that would focus on family and forget about the stress we left behind. We got exactly that and would recommend this house if you want the same!

Owner's Response: We are so very glad that your family enjoyed their trip to Wisconsin and Beachy Keen. The air hockey game seems to be the popular thing with everyone who stays at the house. My personal experience is that the puck gets past me too often!? Your experience with the water is something that comes with having well water at the house. It is tested yearly by the state, but it is not quite the same as city water. We hope that you will visit us again if you are ever back in the area....OR you can check out our house on Amelia Island, Fl. Vrbo #361768. P.S. We have the ocean right in our front yard and it is city water in the faucets. Thank you again!

A beautiful and peaceful place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband took leave (we are stationed in GA right now, USMC) and we took his parents and our kids here for some quality time. My oldest turned 11 and said it was a great birthday. We couldn't have been happier with the place!

Owner's Response: So happy that your entire family had a great time at the lake! Hope that your son at least caught a big fish for his birthday if that is what he likes to do. It is a very peaceful and relaxing place and we are glad to share it with you. Enjoy your summer and thank you for your military service!! Or do I say OohRah !!

Fun family escape from today's busy world

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed this quiet setting near Montello. Between dinners on the porch overlooking the lake or relaxing by the firepit with a sky full of stars, it was a perfect get-a-way for our family of five. Thank you for great vacation memories!
