About Kristin Paulson

The love of water is what brought me and my husband together years ago as lifeguards and swim instructors in my home town of Hudson, WI. After marrying and moving to Chicago, and then to Austin, TX, we longed for our families and the excitement and idyllic lake life and dreamed of one day owning our own lake cabin to share with friends, family, and our own children. This dream came true in 2009 when we purchased The Wapo Lodge on Lake Wapogasset, the same lake we spent so many memorable summer weekends as teenagers and young adults. When the cabin next door came available last summer, 2014, we knew we needed more space to entertain friends and family and share our love of lake living! Someone wrote on our chalkboard, 'Make those who are near happy, and those who are far will come'. We love to fill our lake homes with those who are special to us, near and far. We also want everyone to be able to experience the joy and excitement of living it up on the water's edge!!

Kristin Paulson purchased this chateau / country house in 2014

Mother/Daughter Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely outstanding home/location! So much room for the 8 of us to spread out; kitchen well equipped including lots of extras that are not normally found. Although too early to take advantage of the water, the view of it was outstanding! Owner was very easy to work with. We like to try out new places each year but it will be difficult to consider another location - we loved this place! Thanks so much for the great, homey, comfortable accommodations!

Love love love!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED this rental and think we found our new yearly family getaway spot! The house is beautifully decorated, incredibly comfortable, and very easily accommodated 7 adults with ample room space and hangout space. (All of the couches and chairs were super comfy too!!)

We’re a game family so we especially loved the two huge tables we could use for games and puzzles plus nightly meals. Having two kitchens for cooking was also awesome. We found everything we needed for cooking and dining provided.

Another plus was a cute park just down the road...our dog loved the walk and we loved the sights!

Can’t recommend this place enough :) Kristin was very attentive and answered any and all questions.

5+ stars!

Fall Girl's Weekend/Wine Tasting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Wapo Chateau! 6 of us girls had plenty of space for some board games and our own wine tasting. The cabin had everything we needed, all linens provided . The kitchen was very well stocked and had everything we wanted. We absolutely loved the decor throughout the cabin! Everything was clean and neat. Kristin was very easy to contact and very responsive throughout the entire process. Take her recommendation and eat at Farm Table, absolutely delicious! It was a bit cold for outdoor activities but we did visit the Baker Orchard nearby. Overall we had a great time and hope to return in the future! Thank you for opening your place to us!

Peaceful lake setting; perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Wapo Chateau far exceeded our expectations. Breathtaking lake views. Very clean & well furnished with everything we needed. Our teen daughter & her cousin enjoyed the stand up paddle boards; my husband explored the quiet lake with the kayak. Owner was very gracious in giving our daughter a wake board lesson with their boat & gifting us with a smoked chicken that was delicious. She clued us in on the boat-in church service on the lake Sunday morning. Amery offers a great Farmers Market, Ellie's where we had coffee or ice cream every day, the Art-Z gallery, the Farm Table restaurant, church hosted dinners & a nice grocery store. It was a perfect location to visit relatives in the Twin Cities & Eau Claire. So glad we discovered this beautiful place. Hope to be back.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Mother's Day weekend here and had a peaceful and fun week-end. We kayaked and the grandkids played in the water in the afternoon (even though early May was too cold for the adults, it was the first warm weather of the season and the kids loved being in the water.) The yard is huge too which kept the kids happily occupied.

The house is lovely inside with updated decorating and a dining room with windows looking out at the lake. Just a super nice spot to be inside or outside !

(We also ventured into Amery and had a delicious dinner at Farm Table, a locally sourced restaurant.)

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very, very nice. We had 7 people in our group, ranging in age from 22 to 78, and there was more than plenty of room. Very clean and the décor is true to the photos. We had no issues checking in. Kristin was very easy to work with and supplied me with tidbits of information on the local area. Would definitely stay there again.
