Overview

About the property

Charming 92 Year Old House In The Woods With All The Creature Comforts.

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.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived a bit earlier than the planned time, yet the owner was gracious and kind, giving us a tour of the house along with a bit of history. The outside was beautiful for a walk in the crisp autumn air and inside comfortable with old charm. A claw foot tub helped mom relax, while modern appliances helped with chores. All the little hideouts throughout the home were especially fun for the children! Even at ages 10 and 13, they were caught in an imagination land while hiding out in all the little nooks and corners made just for them. Definitely a family friendly home and highly recommended!

Perfect Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The care and attention to detail is obvious in the quaint cottage in the woods. The updates are well done, and the home as all the amenities you could think of needing. The owners are very accommodating and friendly. You can tell they enjoy having guests stay at their property. The paths they have created in the woods in the yard are perfect for a morning walk before heading off to the nearby beach for the day. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this property.

Truly charming

  • 5 of 5

Lovingly rehabbed and stocked with absolutely everything you could want or need, this home was our "meet up" place for family coming from three midwestern locations. We were lucky to be able to enjoy the Hidden Studios Art Tour and to poke around the nearby towns which have a surprising amount of history and charm. Check out the Great Northern Distillery... not our cup of tea... but learned so much. We will return!

Very fun Mother's Day weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We were slightly concerned when the owner was hanging around when we arrived and insisted on showing us the house. But we were not bothered the entire stay, so all was good. We had so much fun wandering the forest paths and the kids LOVED the little playing and reading nooks. Nice little getaway.

Beautiful Remodeled Rural Farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

This home is an older farmhouse that has been impeccably restored--with original maple floorings, wide moldings, tasteful decorations and home furnishings, and a fully outfitted kitchen. We would definitely stay here again if the opportunity presented itself again:)
