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!

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and well stocked. The area was nice and quiet. The owner was very helpful and professional during the whole process. He made sure to leave us clear sets of instructions for some home amenities and a contact number in case of emergency, but everything went great. We only used the number as we were leaving to let him know we were headed out and he answered right away. Overall, I would recommend this place if you're looking a nice quiet cabin in the woods.

Cozy Gem in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We spent a ski weekend in the cabin Feb. 23rd through the 26th. Our group consisted of 2 families with 5 kids. There was plenty of room so we could spread out and not feel crowded. The property is very secluded in the middle of a forest at the end of a long driveway. It's only 15 minutes to Granite Peak/Rib Mountain. We skied 2 days and each day looked forward to relaxing back at the cabin in front of the fire at the end of the day. The kitchen had everything you need to cook a meal.

We will be coming back again next year.

Great Ski Lodge

  • 5 of 5

There was a group of 6 of us who stayed here for a guys ski trip weekend at Granite Peak. There was plenty of room for everyone and this was a great space for us to hang out after being on the mountain all day. The home is far enough out of town to feel secluded, but a short trip in to town if you need anything. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a stay in Wausau.

A Great Family Home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home - it's a lovely log cabin home which sits in the middle of a forest of trees. The inside is warm and cozy with plenty of room for a group. Beds are very comfortable, fire place upstairs is wood burning and there was plenty of wood available to burn. Basement has a huge family room, large TV and another fireplace and bedroom/bath. Everything about is is warm and inviting. Steve, the owner, was very attentive and available - even helped us with restaurants and surrounding fun things to do. Will definitely stay here again!
