My wife and I (and our two English Setters) were in Wisconsin in February for the American Birkebeiner cross-country ski festival in Hayward. It was a beautiful snowy February weekend and the Traynor cottage was a comfortable and cozy place to spend the long weekend.
We’ve never had a host as welcoming and accommodating as Gary. He contacted us well ahead of our stay to make sure we had accurate directions and instructions for using the cabin. We had several heavy snow flurries throughout the weekend and Gary made sure the deck and all the steps were cleared off each time. He even had a few bottles of wine in the fridge for us!
The cottage is tasteful decorated and very comfortable. It is situated high above the lake and there are several great spots to enjoy the view, both inside and outside the cottage. There is a fire pit in the yard with lots of wood to enjoy a blazing fire.
Summer or winter, the Rice Lake area of Wisconsin is a wonderland for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Beautiful scenery, scenic views, accommodating hosts, and a modern, spacious and comfortable cottage all make for a great time! We will be coming back!
The accommodations are wonderful. Big, clean, fully stocked kitchen. Lots of entertainment options, board games, table games, snow shoes. Plenty of space for a large group to play, eat together, and spread out when needed.
