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!

Long weekend with Family

  • 4 of 5

Cozy cabin with the basics for a long weekend. Granddaughter was able to fish from the pier while adults enjoyed the fire pit. Close to the Dells for entertainment and Montello for the small town feel. Hide-a-bed was was not a good sleeping option which limited real beds to 4. Overall would consider staying again but would bring an air mattress to sleep in the loft.

Cute house on a small lake

  • 3 of 5

The house and setting are cute but the accommodations could use an upgrade. The beds were very firm and the pull-out couch was very old and uncomfortable (not that they are ever really great). The living room furniture needs updating and the water had a strong sulfur smell the entire time.

The owners were great to work with and the small lake was fun to swim and paddle around in. We enjoyed the firepit as well!

Owner's Response: We are glad that your family enjoyed their stay at the lake. The well water does not compare with the city water, but it is tested by the health department every year and comes back with a completely good bill of health. Thank you for the other suggestions and we hope you come back in the future.

Absolutely everything we were hoping for and more!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Seven Pines with my wife for a long weekend (7/29 -8/1). Everything about the weekend exceeded our expectations. The house was clean and comfortable and had all of the necessary amenities. We had a blast cooking meals together in the fully stocked kitchen, playing games up in the loft, and even just relaxing and watching a few of the many movies they had on hand. The charcoal grill was perfect for a cookout one night and we got a ton of use out of the boat, dock, and fire pit. The fishing was even better than expected. We caught a pike, a couple bullheads, and plenty of bass and sun fish all from the comfort of the dock. If you're looking for a quiet place with beautiful views this is the perfect place. We will definitely be keeping Seven Pines on our list of places to visit again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great things you wrote about your family's experience at the lake. I am glad that your son at least got a picture for evidence that he did indeed catch the "big one", even though it got away :( We look forward to your family returning to our house in the future...the fish will be waiting for your son :)
