About Stan and Marcia Morley

Stan grew up in Wisconsin and has called this area his home since attending UW in Madison in the early 70's. Marcia moved here from nearby Illinois in 2002, but loves living in the picturesque rolling hills of the Vermont Township area of Wisconsin and loves calling the area "home".

Stan and Marcia Morley purchased this lodge in 2006

Why Stan and Marcia Morley chose Wisconsin

We've been together in this log home since 2006, even hosting our wedding reception here! We've enjoyed cultivating the gardens and grooming the surrounding acreage to enhance the natural beauty. This home and property change and become more beautiful as the seasons change. Now it's time to share our home with others!

What makes this lodge unique

This home is situated near county roads that lead to all kinds of adventures, and yet the views from every window make you feel you're tucked away in the countryside. We love those beautiful views and the peaceful spots to relax and enjoy the natural surrounding beauty.... from the front porch rockers, the tables and chairs on the deck, the cozy spot to read a book on the screened porch, or the table near the sport court... perfect for watching kids or grandkids play.

Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited Madison to spend a nice weekend with our daughter, who is a college student at the University of Wisconsin. We had some of her college friends over for dinner and we all cooked together in the huge kitchen. We had a bonfire outside and we all had a fun and relaxing time. The location was great and not too far away from campus...yet the property is private, quiet and secluded for a nice get away. The home and the property were immaculate and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This home was immaculate and beautiful. Our vacation was enhanced by staying at this home. It was homey and comfortable and had all the necessary staples. The views surrounding the home are spectacular and very private. The location is well situated close to numerous local towns and attractions. I would definitely stay in this home again if I am ever back in the area. Thank you for sharing your home with others!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The place is amazing. Every inch of this house has been designed with a focus on the high end detail. We had such a great time here - enjoyed the outdoor views, the games (played bags, basketball, pool, and board games) and the facilities. Everything was great

Great Home for Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the wonderful log home, filled with great space and views. Four spacy bedrooms, plenty of baths, a large living room and dining area, spacious kitchen, open and screened porches, plus lower level room for fun and games. All topped with great views out every window of flowers, trees and, of course, the hills and valleys of Wisconsin's Driftless Area. We went to two plays at American Players Theatre, spent a day in Spring Green, enjoyed a meal at the Grumpy Troll Brew Pub in Mt Horeb, read, walked, and enjoyed meals together. If schedules permit, we hope to return next year.

The home was very clean and good directions and instructions were provided. Furnishings were very comfortable - good beds and comfortable seating for all.
