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!

 

Owner info

About the owner: 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!
