About Steve

My wife and I have four young boys. We lived at this location for several years until we were expecting Boy #3 at which time we began to look for something with a little more space. We absolutely loved living here. There are very few places like this in the area. It is quiet and secluded with abundant wildlife. We loved the warm, cozy log home feel with the fireplaces and abundant wood and rustic decor. Besides that, it is located only 2 miles from the city limits so we didn't have to drive a long way out of town to enjoy all of those benefits. If our growing family did not necessitate a bit more living space, we would certainly still be living there today! Our love for this place has caused us to want to share it with others, specifically hosting vacationers to the wonderful Central Wisconsin area. We are certain that you will enjoy staying there as much as we did!

Great Secluded Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Stayed over Christmas break with two families of four and dogs. Place was great. Plenty of room for adults and kids, and the dogs loved running outside in the snow.

The house was great!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great with everything we needed. We had a mini ski vacation with our young adult kids. Their house had plenty of room. Their website says it was 10 minutes from granite peak but was actually almost 20 minutes away. However, it was a quick jaunt to ski and we would use this house again if we return!

Wausau, WI

Cozy, Clean, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

A group of eight women relatives stayed at this cabin for a weekend getaway, which we do every year (for the past 13 years). We choose a different, new cabin every year, and we were not disappointed in our choice this year. It's secluded and quiet, but just a few minutes from town makes it super convenient. If you choose, it's also just a short drive from the Eau Claire Dells.

The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed for the weekend. At first some of the women were disappointed there wasn't wi-fi, but after a few hours realized it was a blessing to not be distracted from giving our full attention to each other. There was just enough seating in the living room for all eight of us to relax and enjoy each other's company. Overall a great place to stay and create new memories with our family. Communication with the owners was effortless; they were very accommodating to our needs and responded to messages promptly. Highly recommend this cabin for anyone looking in the Wausau area!

Quiet and secluded, yet close to town.

  • 5 of 5

Four girlfriends of 60 plus years shared this log home for a long weekend. Our purpose was mainly to catch up but we found plenty to do in the Wausau area, Artrageous, Art in the Park and Leigh Yawkey Birds in Art, as well as nice resturaunts at which to dine. This log home is both spacious and cozy, decorated in Northwoods cabin style. It is much bigger than it appears form the outside. We split meals between eating out, with suggestions from our host Steve, and eating in. A gas grill was provided along with a campfire area. Plenty of chairs and tables were provided for outdoor use. Bedrooms and bedrooms were stocked with extra towels and bedding as well as storage for clothing. The kitchen was very nice, well stocked, even coffee, filters, and condiments, but became a bit small with four women trying to prepare a meal.

The rental was very clean and the hosts very responsive when contacted.

This vacation lodging was in a clearing surrounded by tall pines, it really felt like civilization was a long way off but it was only a couple of minutes drive to groceries, gas and resturaunts and only about 10 minutes to the downtown area.

We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Wausau area.

Granite Peak Ski Area and Nine Mile Nordic Area
Car: recommended

Central Wisconsin is a wonderful destination for vacationers, adventurers, sight-seers, history buffs, outdoor enthusiasts, and families. By planning your stay in Wausau, you can access nearly every part of the state within a two or three hour drive!

Enjoy a great day on the snow at Granite Peak Ski Area, the Midwest's largest ski resort. Nordic skiing your preference? Nine Mile Recreation Area has miles of beautiful and well-groomed trails. Marathon County also boasts of excellent snowmobiling, ice fishing, snowshoeing, and hunting.

During the summer months, take advantage of the rivers and lakes for fishing or paddling, test your mountain bike skills at Nine Mile, catch one of the World Championship Kayak Races right in downtown Wausau, or play one of the area's several beautiful golf courses. Outdoor and nature opportunities abound at Rib Mountain State Park, the thousands of acres of public-access lands, and the dozens of county and city parks.

After a full day of outdoor fun and adventures, check out the city life for endless opportunities catering to all types of interests. Catch an open-air concert at the 400 Block in the heart of Wausau, enjoy a live show featuring national-level performers at the stately Grand Theatre. Sample cuisine, craft beers and wines at any number of the local restaurants, pubs, and micro-breweries. From up-scale dining to local greasy-spoon joints and everything in-between, you are sure to find what you are hungry for! Spend time visiting historic sites, Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, shopping, antique shops, or walking around the beautifully renovated downtown.

Be sure not to miss hugely popular events such as the Rib Fest & Hot Air Balloon Glow, Blues Fest, Badger State Games, Wisconsin Valley Fair, Art in the Park, Exhibitor Wine Expo, Kayak/Canoe Freestyle Championships, Gus Macker Tournament, Olympic Curling facility, Chalkfest, or Concerts on the Square.

There is something for everyone any time of year. Seasonal recreation offerings include: paddling, fishing, camping, biking, river trails, walking, hiking, sight-seeing, corn mazes, harvest festivals, candle-lit snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, nature programs, sporting events, regional mountain bike races, organized runs, conference centers, recreation centers, swimming pools, aquatic centers, museums, and so much more.

Wausau and the Central Wisconsin area is truly a do-it-all destination for year-round travelers, no matter what your interests may be!
