About John & Claudia
Claudia and I lived in Orlando, FL for 21 years before moving to central Wisconsin in August of 2006. It became an annual ritual for us to visit family in the Chicago area where I (John) grew up. On multiple occasions we took a second week to stay at the lake where we vacationed when I was a kid in central Wisconsin. I fell in love with the area all over again. Claudia and our 6 kids absolutely loved it up here as well. It started out as just crazy talk as we contemplated the idea of how great it would be move up here to enjoy the beauty and lifestyle of central Wisconsin. Well one thing led to another and the next thing you know we were loading up the moving van.
John & Claudia purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why John & Claudia chose Nekoosa
We looked at a lot of properties on our 3 day house hunting trip back in January of 2006. When we first visited this home it had an undeniable charm and the “wow factor” was palpable. It wasn’t a “fixer upper” per say but it was far from it’s full potential. We knew there was a lot of work ahead of us and at first we weren't 100% convinced we wanted to take it on. In the end there was something about this place we just couldn’t let go of. Today we’re on the doorstep of being empty nesters but the thought of giving this place away has become unthinkable to both of us.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Gambrel Guesthouse is the ultimate place to get away from it all to experience nature and an over the top cabin experience suited for large groups or multiple families.

Great spot! Beautiful home
John and Claudia have a beautiful little property in central WI. My group stayed for a quick but perfect night at this stunning log retreat. The weather didn't cooperate so we were not able to enjoy the fire pit and outside amenities the property offered but the inside was great for the night. Certainly a great property for a group, a few families or one large family. Plenty of rooms and bunk beds to go around. Next time in central WI we will strongly consider a return. Thanks!
The rain was a bummer but hopefully we can have you back with better luck. I’m glad you enjoyed our place for the short stay just the same.
Our group enjoyed every minute of our two night stay at this property. Very well equipped with everything you need. John was very helpful with recommending activities in the area as well. Our group highly recommends a visit to Chambrel guest house.
It was great having you and I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. Claudia and I would love to have you back!
Not enough time at the Gambrel Guesthouse.
Our group make a trip every year and have stayed all over. This place was special. We had 8 guys and 7 beds, but it worked out perfectly. The attention to detail is amazing. A TV in the basement, a Green Egg (which we didn't have time to use) on the deck and a firepit. It was perfect. Thank you all for the clean accommodations, great communication and reasonable cost. Be well.
Claudia and I are glad you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully we can have you back to enjoy the Big Green Egg and the entire property!
Great place for a large group getaway
Booked this place for a guy's weekend and everyone loved it. Beautiful house with a great view. The fire pit was great for sitting around late night. The grill came in handy for meals. Plenty of lawn games and indoor games to keep everyone entertained. Definitely would book this place again for a large group getaway.
I’m glad everyone enjoyed our place and had a great time. We hope to have you back at some point!
A great home on beautiful property
Thank you, John and Claudia, for sharing your home with us. We loved the house and really enjoyed the tranquility. A bonfire was a really nice way to end our first night...a great time!
It was great hosting your group and I’m glad you enjoyed our place. The home is gorgeous but the setting really does set it apart. I have to admit a fire in the fire pit on a beautiful summer evening in that setting truly is about as good as it gets. Claudia and I would love to have you back with the opportunity to meet next time!
This place was awesome!! I absolutely loved everything about it! Really comfortable sleeping conditions and every part of the property was decorated perfectly. Close to lakes for water sports. Lots to do at property itself, pool table, board games, TV, internet, campfire and nice trails on property. Would love to go back again in any season to watch the beauty of the surroundings change with the seasons! Thank you so much for the wonderful weekend!
I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. You are correct, each season is quite beautiful especially with Claudia’s seasonal decor and touches. It won’t be long until the corn stalks, hay bails, pumpkins, mums, and such will be on display. And then after that Christmas. Claudia has the country touch that is incredible. I’ll make sure we get some pics up after she does her magic. There could be no better place for family to spend for Thanksgiving or Christmas. We hope to have you back and meet in person next time!
