Quilters will be excited to know that Belleville is the home of Patches "n Petals, premiere quilt shop in the southern Wisconsin area. New Glarus is 8 minutes away and hosts the Wilhelm Tell Festival in late summer. Blue Mounds is 20 minutes west and has Cave of the Mounds, with underground spelunking tours. Stoughton hosts the annual Syttendemai Festival in May each year. Madison and the University of Wisconsin are huge attractiions, with football, basketball, hockey, and concerts and museums galore. Madison also offers a Saturday morning market on the Square, and Tuesday night Concerts on the Square, not to forget shopping on avant garde State Street which connects the Capitol Square with the University. Madison also offers unique shopping, activities, cinemas, the Oscar Mayer Theatre and Art Museum at the Performing Arts Center, all kinds of events at the Monona Terrace Convention Center, and the Alliant Energy Center and Coliseum.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: This is Jim and Lynn, your hosts. Whisper Rock was created and lovingly restored by us, the owners, for your pleasure. We are located just 15 minutes south of Madison, Wisconsin. You will enjoy your vacation any time you decide to visit. We hope you make it a point to come and stay!

Why the Owner Chose Belleville, WI, USA:
Drive up the long drive, get out of the car and step back in time. Through the arbor and the courtyard, up the steps and onto the porch—you can see the old wooden porch furniture, looking out at the fountain and the lake beyond. The gingerbread-clad screen door opens, and you have arrived. You see lace and satin curtains, sturdy old wood floors, fretwork overhead, and an inviting living room welcoming you to sit down and stay. Walk in and take a deep breath. The huge kitchen has room enough for a large family to sit and enjoy Sunday dinner. The antique hutch and buffets hold all you need for a holiday affair. The bathroom holds a giant claw-foot tub, enough to bathe 3 kids at once, plus a convenient shower for you. The antique walnut chest spills over with extra deep plush bath sheets. The back hall and old banister lead you down the hall to the bedrooms, where thick carpets welcome your toes, and quilts and lace ask you to lie down on the antique beds on a warm summer evening. Stained glass lamps shine at night and invite you to curl up with a good book or that special someone. Seek out the old armoire in the purple bedroom and see yourself in the original silver-backed antique mirror. Connect with the past. Feel the ghosts that may touch you and sail by on a breeze. Do you hear their voices, see their shadows, or notice the scent of lavender? Perhaps you are even treated to the sight of a piece of sheet music fluttering to the floor from the 100-year-old piano when the air is still. If you play, try some music from inside the piano bench. The spirits especially like the antique arrangements. Nothing is left to chance. Stay as long as you like. Dream your dreams, whatever they may be. Simpler times are not gone for good. They are still here at Whisper Rock Victorian Dreams.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Why you will truly love this place: --Gazebo and front porch with the huge lake view. --Porch swing on the cool side of the house. --Spectacular sunsets. --Wonderful blooming gardens. --Old wooden floors. --Deep plush carpets in bedrooms. --Extra absorbent soft bath sheets. --Pillows on beds galore. --Soaking tub. --Huge kitchen. --Old-fashioned everything. Come back to the past, Enjoy your future vacation!
