About the property

Perfect family getaway, large yard, remodeled top to bottom, all new furniture.

The property greets you with a 600' private driveway through tall pines on each side including a white fence down the entire drive. This is a very secluded, private haven for you and your family, but don't worry, you are only minutes away from Granite Peak Ski Area and all of downtown Wausau. Aspirus' huge YMCA is only a block down the road and has an Olympic size swimming pool as well as full basketball courts, fitness areas among many other amenities.

The home was purchased in October and completely remodeled top to bottom to give it an updated feel. All furniture is brand new. Beautiful hickory wood flooring in both levels of the house. Smart Wifi TV's in every room along with a cable package ensure you will not miss the game or your favorite show. High-speed Wifi (60Gb) allows you to enjoy a working vacation if that is what is required. DVD player available for the newest Redbox releases.

The main floor living room has a very comfortable couch, loveseat and chair with ottoman. There is a large 65' curved 4K resolution TV to give a movie-theatre feel to the room. Bean-bag chairs can be brought into the room for 'movie night.'

In the kitchen you will find full service for 16 total guests. The kitchen is outfitted with all the pots and pans, mixing bowls, serving bowls, cooking and serving utensils as well as leftover containers. There is a popcorn popper, coffee maker, blender, (2) crock-pots, toaster and wine opener.

At the kitchen counter-top there is seating for three and the dining room table has seating for six. There is also the option for pulling in the small table from the playroom if you need additional seating for four small children. There is a also a high-chair available.

In the main-floor playroom you will find an assortment of toys, books, bean-bag chairs and a small teepee. The bean-bag chairs and teepee ensure the kids will be comfortable and enjoy the home as much as you will.

Main floor master has king bed as well as a twin over twin bunk bed. All mattresses and bedding are brand new (Nov 2014). Huge glass patio door allows you to enjoy wildlife viewing while relaxing in bed in the morning. Wall-mounted Samsung Smart TV allows for lazy mornings. His and hers closets and two dressers ensures there is plenty of space for your belongings.

Laundry room is located on the main level and has a new large-capacity top-loading washer (cavernous) and large-capacity dryer for all of your laundering needs. This room has a heater just above boot height to help dry out your boots after skiing Granite Peak. There is also a coat rack for drying out your snow gear.

There are two bathrooms in the house, one on the main floor and one upstairs. There are towels for eight people in each bathroom.

The upstairs gameroom has an air hockey table and assorted games in the closet to keep the kids of all ages entertained.

We also have a double twin over full bunk room, queen bedroom and very large upstairs master with huge walk-in closet. Again, all rooms have both cable and smart TV options.

We look forward to your stay with us and know that you will love the home just as much as we do. Enjoy your family/friends and all that Central Wisconsin has to offer; four seasons of fun and seemingly unlimited activities.

About Christina Raber-Jehn

I grew up in Wausau, WI and after college, moved away to Phoenix, AZ. We missed this beautiful area, the seasons, the people and all of the fun things to do here year round. We decided that we wanted to come back and also give the same opportunity to others like us who believe this area is amazing! We hope you enjoy the peace and comfort that this secluded property can provide.

Christina Raber-Jehn purchased this chateau / country house in 2014

Why Christina Raber-Jehn chose Weston

Of all of the properties we looked at, this one was the complete package. There was the privacy of being in the country yet we were only minutes from all of the attractions in the area. No longer 25-40 minute drives like I was used to when commuting to Wausau from the country when I was a kid. The house is huge and now it that it is basically brand new, it has everything we could dream of. The property itself is so pretty with wildlife in abundance.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Huge unique trees for swinging/climbing, many bird feeders and birdhouses, apple trees in back yard, huge grassy yard, large rooms in house with room for a large group, all new furniture and amenities inside home, completely remodeled.

Wonderful property for a Granite Peak getaway! Fantastic owners as well!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time renting this property for our annual trek up to Granite Peak. Property is well appointed, private and an easy drive to the mountain. We had three couple with 5 kids between us. There is plenty of room to let the kids hang out and the adults relax after each day skiing.

We look forward to renting again in 2019!!

Perfect house for large group who want to ski or just get away

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! The only thing we would suggest would be a spice rack. We cooked mostly at the house and only had salt and pepper but we made the best out of it. The house was super clean and the kids loved the air hockey table. Thank you again for rent out the house to us. Will definitely keep in mind for the next time!

A very clean home with some modern updates. Flat screen TVs in all the rooms. Being able to use of the garage was also a positive. Beautiful property and well stocked kitchen. Just a short distance to ski area and waterpark. Overall a very good experience.

Great home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Our family headed up to Wausau for 3 days of skiing at Granite Peak and stayed at this great home. We have three young kids and the house was perfect for us. Plenty of room, a playroom full of toys, a high chair, and more TVs than I have ever seen. One of them is even curved which made watching the olympics an amazing experience. We had a great time, the owner is extremely helpful and responsive, and if we head back to Wausau we would certainly stay there again.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of friends come up for a weekend of skiing. This house was PERFECT! 10 minutes to Granite Peak, so many sleeping spaces, large common areas for hanging out and playing games at night. Great place to spend time with friends or family!!
