UNIQUE 3 SEASON WATERFRONT HOME. VERY PRIVATE. VERY QUIET

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Black River Falls - Creekside Escape LLC

2 Bdrm 2 Bath Fully-furnished home. Sleeps 5 on beds. Very dog friendly.

Escape 2 nights or 2 weeks - or more - for a lifetime of memories!

Creekside is a fully-furnished, modern & immaculate, family-owned guesthouse located on a wooded hillside above a crystal-clear trout stream. It's an ideal choice for a 2 night get-away or - better yet - a weekly, long-term rental. We even let you bring your beloved K9(s) - why leave them behind?

Bring your fly rods and fish for our Native Brook, wild Brown or wily Rainbow Trout, or your canoes and kayaks so you can ride the currents, or maybe a tube or two for easy riding. Wade 2 minutes downstream and there's a wide, deep - typically 8 to 10 foot deep - 'swimming hole,' where you and your loved ones, and your K9s(!) can play and swim in the water. Most years, we even have perfect-for-sun bathing, warm-and-relaxing sandbar beaches you can stretch out on, And we leave out lawn chairs for you to use if you want to sit up and read, or 'do' a picnic, or ...... just sit and stare off into space without being interrupted by anyone or anything.

We've dedicated a whole acre of land around the house just for our guests to use, so Creekside's a very quiet, very private get-away location for all ages. Yet we're an easy drive to state & county lakes, parks, trails, golfing, shopping & dining. You can go scuba diving at Wazee Lake, try your luck at Majestic Pines Casino, golf at a great course right in Black River Falls or walk the 4 mile Heritage Trail around the city.

Our road is part of a Township-approved ATV route that links right up to the 235 mile Jackson/Clark County ATV/Dual-Sport Motorcycle Trail. We provide safe, off-road parking for your rigs & trailers close to house, with NO 'extra-vehicle' charges. You can get on your rigs at the house, take one of our driveways out to Dodge Road, then drive straight to the Trail 6 section of the two-County system. Do note: the Township ATV route we're on isn't shown on the printed and online ATV maps Jackson County provides! Ask us to email you the current Township ATV route map so you can see exactly where we're located.

The house is a modern, two bedroom, two full bath mobile home that's open Mid April thru January, and comes complete with central heat & A/C, a well-appointed kitchen, full laundry, and comfortable, clean furniture throughout. DISH 250 Channel TV Programming and WIFI internet service is provided free-of-charge. Five guests can sleep comfortably on beds in the house, another on the sofa bed in the living room plus there's also a full-size ('fit for two') Lane sofa bed down in the furnished screen house. Just about the only things you'll need to bring are cell phones, big beach towels and extra large bath towels (if you prefer them) charcoal and flashlights. We'll make up the beds for you (unless you'd rather bring your own linens) or - if time is short between bookings - we'll leave out sheets sets for you to use.

Talking about the screen house: Pretend you're roughing it when you're not!: Guests who want relax 'outside' without ever worrying about bugs are going to love our unique 12 x 14 framed screen house we've named The Bird House. We built it close enough to the creek so you can watch the water flow by and listen to the 'water music' without even getting out of your chair. Read, play cards, get caught up on family news, bring down a picnic basket from the house, watch your spouse fly-fish the creek, or your kids play in the water. Work on crafts, or just sit down there and and do nothing. We provide the pillows, blankets, comforter and sheets for the full-size, very comfortable davenport sleeper.

Smoking isn't allowed in the guesthouse, but it is allowed on the open entry porch, on the decks and in The Bird House.

Our rates are based on 5 overnight guests in April & May and, October through January, and 7 overnight guests June through September. A modest additional guest fee would be charged and prior approval needed for larger groups.

We've already included the nasty 5.5% state and local taxes here in all our rates.

Children are welcome but must be under adult supervision at all times in the house, on the property and in the water.

Dog(s) are very welcome! A $100 refundable pet damage deposit is required for your first visit and modest nightly pet fees are charged for up to 3 K9s, no weight-limit. Ask us to send you our Pet Rules and Regs so you know what's allowed (and what isn't.)

Enjoy all the activities in this area of Wisconsin while you're here, Spring Summer, Fall and early Winter, or just soak up the R & R right at Creekside. No other renters or rental units here, so there's none of the noise associated with water parks or large RV/camper sites where you're elbow-to-elbow with other vacationers. The owners do live just downstream from the guesthouse, but you'll never see them unless they're watering the gorgeous gardens surrounding Creekside or you need their help with something.

Key in. Sigh. Relax. Enjoy!

We're just two hours from Madison, 70 minutes from the Wisconsin Dells, 1 hour from La Crosse, or Eau Claire, about 3 hours from Wausau, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Rochester & Dubuque IA and four hours from the north Chicago suburbs. We're a proud member of the Black River Area Chamber of Commerce and are featured on their website. Do check the websites for Jackson County, the City of Black River Falls, the Black River Area Chamber of Commerce or the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for more area information.

Please take a minute (or two!) and click into the Guestbook button on our HomeAway listing and read the reviews our guests have written about Creekside.

Get started on reserving your time with us ASAP! Just click into the Availability Calendar on our listing with HomeAway, pick out the open nights you want and send us an inquiry. We'll get back to you right away.

LOVELY RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 out of 5
We met up with friends from Nebraska here and this was a great stay for us. We were immediately soothed by the sound of the creek waters and the whisper of the breezes through the pines. Bill and Ruth had everything set up for us and kept us supplied with firewood for our nightly campfires. It was so relaxing to chat by the fire and let ourselves be mesmerized by the flames. My personal favorite was the screened in "Birdhouse" where I could sit in the rocker and read while being surrounded by the beauty of the woods. We were so taken with its beauty that we whiled away our first day there just doing nothing but relaxing and letting the peace of it sink in deeply. We found everything we needed for cooking and never ate a meal out during our stay. Bill and Ruth were very friendly and hospitable and made it known that they were available if needs arose but also gave us our privacy. We felt like it was luxury camping. All the advantages of a campout with none of the discomforts. We did not bring our dog but she would have loved it too. When it comes time to choose our rendezvous location for next year we will face a tough choice between the excitement of exploring somewhere new and the lure of returning to this relaxing haven. We are strongly considering returning.

Owner's Response: These Michigan folks and their friends from Nebraska were the kind of guests vacation home owners like us dream about. - friendly, courteous, quiet yet fun to have around and immaculate housekeepers.
This was their first visit to Creekside, but they fit in like they were raised here - with love for the woods and water, the wildlife and the birds, and oh-so-careful about not leaving any sort of "footprint" behind. We hated to see them leave.
We do so hope they'll meet up here again next year. We like being spoiled!

THEY HAVE THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING!

  • 5 out of 5
Bill and Ruth have left no stone unturned. Everything you might need in a vacation rental is provided except the food. Very private. Lovely property with flowers everywhere. Very comfortable. Our dog loved it too! Would definitely return.

Owner's Response: These folks spoiled US with their good company, charming, sweet-natured K9, and their wall-to-wall spotless housekeeping. They felt like strangers for maybe ... oh ... 20 seconds - when they first arrived - then they instantly felt like friends we just hadn't seen for awhile. What a joy. Sure hope they visit us every year!

PERFECT CHOICE FOR A RELAXING VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
From the moment we arrived, Creekside felt like our home away from home. The house has everything and anything you could think of to make your stay comfortable and Ruth and Bill are amazing hosts! Their hospitality is top-notch. The dogs enjoyed the creek as much as the kids did and everyone enjoyed both the relaxing time spent on the huge porch as well as down on the hammock. The Bird House is an amazing place to sit and drink coffee and is well stocked with books. The house has tons of toys for the kiddos and my nieces greatly enjoyed the stuffed animal collection. The creek is a wonderful place to cool off and the beach area downstream was the perfect place for the kids and dogs to play. The property is absolutely gorgeous. The hummingbird feeder was a hit! We were able to sit and watch the hummingbirds feed throughout the day. We were ventured to the beach at Lake Wazee one day and we would highly recommend the trip! It's a gorgeous location.

We highly recommend this property to anyone who loves the outdoors and wishes to get away from it all. Thanks again Bill and Ruth for making this a truly memorable vacation!

Owner's Response: As hosts to first-time visitors, we keep our fingers crossed our guests will "connect" to Creekside in ways that will give them great memories for years to come. And this group of ladies, and their dogs, 'fit in' perfectly here from the minute they arrived. It's such a joy for us as hosts (and neighbors) when that happens! They left the guesthouse, Bird House and property absolutely spotless. Truly wonderful for us. Now we have our fingers crossed they'll be back for years to come!

A GREAT PLACE FOR VACATIONING

  • 5 out of 5
My wife, our 2 dogs, and I had a wonderful time at Creekside Escape. The property is gorgeous, peaceful, well-appointed, comfortable, and close to many activities. Bill and Ruth maintain the place very well, and are excellent hosts.
The location is perfect. It is far enough away from traffic and other people, but close enough to drive into town or to the many area parks and trails. The bird watching is fantastic. The trout fishing is fun.
The Birds Nest is a beautiful and unique addition that you won't find at other locations. Great for reading a book, playing a game, or watching family members fly fish in the creek.
The rooms were very clean. The kitchen has everything you need. The deck is huge and has lots of seating. The fire pit worked great.
I can't say enough good things about this location. Check out the Creekside Escape. You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: These guests were a great blessing to us - friendly, courteous and their dogs were darling. And, they set the bar really high for future guests with their thoughtful and thorough housekeeping and grounds care - they left the house spotless, started the linens for us and even took the time to separate their glass, aluminum and plastic so it could all be recycled. We sure hope they come back to us, year after year.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL =)

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Creekside this July. The home was so incredibly clean and stocked with everything we could want or need. Bill and Ruth are exceptional hosts and are incredibly accommodating and yet allow you your privacy. Great place nestled in the woods and so serene and peaceful. Great getaway to go and relax and the creek is sooooo clear! Would go back in a heartbeat and hope to soon. Lovely gardens too.

PEACE AND QUIET

  • 5 out of 5
What a great place. We completely enjoyed our Memorial Day weekend get-away. Our favorite thing was the "Bird House" a short walk from the house, a good sized screen house. On a hot evening we played cards out there, on a lovely day, we sat and read surrounded by the forest, the only sounds the birds, the breeze in the trees and the babbling creek at the back of the property. On a rainy day, there was plenty to do inside. The kitchen was outfitted with everything with we could want, I am sure that if there was something I needed Ruth would have brought it over. Bill & Ruth are excellent hosts, very friendly but respected our privacy. Thanks for a great weekend.

Owner's Response: These folks were delightful guests. Every vacation rental owner should be so lucky! We sure hope they come back and stay even longer next time .... maybe when the water's warmer and they can go swimming and fishing, too? Hope so.

A truly unique 3 season get-away! Escape for 2 nights, 2 weeks (or longer!) for a lifetime of memories for everyone in your group. Located 9 miles southeast of Black River Falls WI, in the pine forests of southeastern Jackson County, we're just down the road from 1000s of acres of undeveloped county forest land. The woods team with birds and wildlife, the air is clean, crisp and quiet, and there's very limited public access to the lovely trout stream below Creekside and its neat 'swimming hole' and sand beaches.

If you're in the mood for dining, shopping, antiquing, boating, hiking, biking or to go to a water park, golf course or casino, that's all just 15 minutes away in Black River Falls.

Bring your fly rod and fish our stream for wild brown trout, native brook and rainbow; take a short drive to canoe and kayak the Black River or fish the Black River, Lake Arbutus and flowages for muskie, walleye and smallmouth bass; hunt for whitetail deer, ruffed grouse, wild turkey, ducks and geese; ice skate year-round at the Black River Falls rink; enjoy prime scuba diving at Wazee Lake - Wisconsin's deepest lake; hike, bike or even bring your horses along and ride 20 miles of horseback riding trails at the 68,000 acre Black River State Forest; experience the beauty of Ho Chunk culture at their Memorial Day and Labor Day weekend pow-wows or try your luck at the Ho-Chunk Casino!

Golf: The 18 hole Skyline Golf Course in Black River Falls is a golfer's dream course - laid out over acres of undulating and wooded hills. The back 9 is especially scenic and well-designed as it carves its way through a beautiful oak and pine forest.

Do as much as you want or as little as it takes to rest, relax and get rid of the stress you've been carrying around. Stop looking at your watch or waiting for the phone to ring. You might even read a book or two. Or do nothing at all. Your peace and privacy is guaranteed. That's what a real vacation is all about.

We're open Mid April through the first week of January, accept MasterCard and Visa and welcome your family dog(s) with open arms.

When you compare what you've learned about Creekside to what you've read about other rental sites in our area, we'd like to suggest that you double check the following: do their rates already include the 5.5% state and local taxes like ours do, or do you have to pay that additional $ before you can check-in? Is the water so clean you can drink it from the tap or will you have to bring along bottled water? We test our artesian well water every year to make sure it's safe for you to drink - so leave those fancy filters and expensive bottled waters at home! And, finally, ask the property managers if they're licensed by the State of WI to operate their rental unit(s). They'd need to pass a rigorous yearly inspection by a Health and Family Services inspector, like we do, to be properly licensed. And, boy, do those inspectors check everything to make sure you're coming into a home that's clean, safe and properly maintained for you and everyone you bring along with you to Creekside.

Notes:
The mowed paths in the woods are easy to negotiate, the fire pit is close to the house and the wrap-around deck gives everyone all the room they need to spread out and relax. Lots of lawn chairs, nice picnic tables, end tables, grills and seasonal hanging baskets and planters. Fellow gardeners are going to love all the flowerbeds around the house and the gorgeous container gardening. Separate, completely-furnished screen room above the creek sleeps 2 comfortably during warmer months. No electric or water, but truly outstanding views of the creek and easy access to the water.
