Property description

This newly renovated 92 year old house echoes all the charm of a simpler time, but with all the creature comforts to make your family and friends feel right at home today. Respect for the period and integrity of the house is evident in the artful decor. Three bedrooms up stairs off the sunny sitting room have two double beds and one twin bunk bed. The second floor bath features the original claw foot tub next to a window to relax and enjoy the beauty of the season in the woods outside. A bathroom with a walk in shower and laundry area share the first floor with the kitchen and greater living/dining room. The tv and cd player/radio may add to visiting, reading, playing games or napping in the cozy greater room.

The kitchen is fully furnished with gas range, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator along with everything needed to prepare meals. The deck off the kitchen, complete with grill and table and chairs, is perfect for any meal time. It is always comfortable with forced air heat, air conditioning and ceiling fans. All bath and bed linens are provided. A free standing gas fireplace will take the chill of anytime. A favorite is the front porch swing with a cup of tea, coffee or glass of wine, especially during a spring or summer shower.

Seventeen acres of virgin woods on hilly terrain just out the door make exploring on the cut trails an adventure whether with a walking stick in the spring, summer or fall or on cross country skies or snow shoes in the winter.

Nearby points of interest include the Ice Age hiking and biking trails (road traffic is very low), Sunset Lake County Park with a beautiful beach and picnic area. Flume Creek just down the road is a Class A Trout Stream. The Iola Winter Park features beautifully groomed and lighter cross country ski trails as well as ski jumping ramps. You may want to take in the Iola Winter Carnival in February, Iola Car Show (one of the largest in the US) in July,the MREA Energy Fair in June, the Rising Star Mill Art Show in May, the Hidden Studios Art Tour featuring 9 artist studios the first weekend in October when the fall color is spectacular. There is so much to do with Waupaca and Stevens Point 20ish miles away in either direction that you may need to stay an extra week just to relax and rejuvinate where the quiet is really quiet and the stars are really bright.
