About Stephen & Marilyn Zipsie
My wife Marilyn and I were born and raised in Southern Wisconsin. We have lived in the area all our lives and know that there are many special places in this world but there is no place like home! Our daughter and her husband live nearby and we are able to see our grandchildren on a daily basis. It is a great place for a family and we chose to make it our home.
Stephen & Marilyn Zipsie purchased this House in 2015
Why Stephen & Marilyn Zipsie chose Blanchardville
My wife and I purchased this home last year because it was at the end of our dead end road right next our home and included land adjacent to our land. We retired recently and thought that it would be a good place for friends and family to stay while visiting the area. When not use by our guests, it is available to the family.
What makes this House unique
We love this part of Wisconsin because it is in a physically beautiful area with trout streams, cliffs and deep valleys. We can watch the deer in the yard every morning and hear the sounds of sand hill cranes and turkeys by day or watch a bald eagle circling overhead and hear coyotes by night. At night the sky is full of stars that most will never see. With all the hustle and bustle and chaos in the world these days, we know that we can step outside and hear the sound of the wind in the trees and leave everything behind us and just enjoy life with our children and grand children.

Quarantine get away
Great property! Needed a place to go to for a few days during the shelter in place. Plenty of space for grandparents, parents, 2 teenagers and a dog. Spent lots of time on the deck and walking the trails. Beds were cozy and kitchen had everything we needed to cook all our meals for 3 days. Upstairs loft was a great reading place. Steve was very prompt on all email questions and even called us during the stay to warn us about weather coming. Will look to go back in the Fall to see the wildlife and fall color.
Our family of five sought a trip away for time away from the city. We feel so fortunate to have found Steve’s property on VRBO. The cabin was beautiful and well equipped. We were amazed by the natural beauty of the surroundings, including groomed trails and overlooks. Our three young daughters reveled in the chance to explore the wilderness and Steve kindly share his vast expertise about local wildlife and conservation, including how to distinguish between different types of animal tracks. We love to travel as a family, both nationally and internationally, and this has been one of our most memorable trips, thanks to Steve’s hospitality. We count ourselves fortunate to have found a place close to home, which truly caters to families with children. We will be back and plan to share our wonderful experiences with friends looking to travel with kids!
Serene and off grid magic
The whole process was easy with no issues. The property is so beautiful and waking up to sparkling white snow for 3 days was a treat. The lodge was clean, spacious, and so cozy. I would love to come back!
Perfect quiet getaway. No traffic, no noise, few people. Just beautiful scenery from horizon to horizon as you cruise along the hill tops roads. Soothing trip anytime of year. Only one complaint- cloudy weather didn’t allow for beautiful sunset. Guess we’ll just have to come back and try again.
We had a group of guys here for a hunting trip. It was a perfect place for us! Plenty of room for everyone, great kitchen to cook in - even has a poker table in the loft!
We’ll be back for sure.
