Overview

About the property

Your 5 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Oasis Of Solitude On The Wisconsin River

Need a peaceful setting for your vacation? Well here it is with 1.29 acres, 150 feet of Wisconsin River frontage, and a well equipped, large abode to spread out in. Family vacation memories last a life time. Check out the game room with air hockey or a ping pong game (great for those rainy days or the 4 large TVs). Need a quiet moment while cooking up a storm in the well equipped kitchen? Send the kids out to find a real turkey feather or the old traditional snipe hunt? The dock will be in soon and you can enjoy the use of a 3 person canoe or the 2 kayaks.

How about the warm sweet gooeyness of a campfire marshmallow or just caught fish on the grill? The large yard can be used for most any type of outside games. Or, if you just want to relax, picture your self in the hammock with a good book or just a nap.

About Kelly and Jane

A Wi farm girl and a yopper who love the water & live further down stream want to share a slice of heaven. We have 7 grown kids between us & a granddaughter. Traveling is our passion and we've used VRBO so we thought sharing a place in central WI would be great.

Kelly and Jane purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Kelly and Jane chose Wisconsin

Being on the Wisconsin River is awesome for kayaking/canoeing and fishing with 1.3 acres to spread out with solitude. We could even hook you up with a guide for muskie fishing. Granite Peak is close, lots of festivals in Wausau like Rib Fest are fun (check out the balloon rally in our photo). The house is expansive, able to hold your large group yet intimate gatherings can be had due to all the different rooms.

What makes this chalet unique

We are located between the Trappe and Pine rivers which flow into the Wisconsin river. They each have some nice whitewater sections minutes away from your vacation rental! 20 Min. to Granite Peak for skiing, drive way just off of snowmobile trail, on the Wisconsin River with this section known for great MUSKIE hunting, river perfect for kayaking / canoeing ( 2 recreational kayaks for your use or a 3 person canoe). Get that 'up north' experience with a fire pit and solitude. Also, a visit to my nearby Apiary could be arranged for a unique, educational, & FREE honeybee experience!

Great for large groups

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a large group. There are several different living spaces so we could spread out and have our own space if we wanted. There are enough beds and bathrooms for everyone to feel comfortable. Everyone was impressed. Everyone in our party would stay here again.

Cozy Retreat on the River

  • 5 of 5

The River Chalet is a cozy but spacious property to house the whole family. Great yard to play in, the house has everything you need, including games and tons of blankets. This was our 2nd time staying here, and we will return again next year!

Perfect spot for ski weekend w/ group of friends

  • 5 of 5

Kelly and Jane were flexible and very, very pleasant and easy to work with. The chalet was much more than we needed in terms of space and was kept up very well. Granite Peak is an easy 20 min drive. Thanks Kelly and Jane!

house on a lake

  • 4 of 5

Great house, well maintained, as described. Very spacious for at least 3 families. the only problem we had that it was really hot and we could not figure out the heat settings even though the thermostats were on the walls and we kept it at the lowest settings. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Glad you found that our River Chalet met your needs & expectations. We are sorry you could not regulate the heat to your liking. If you would have given us a call, we could have walked you through the problem. Hydronic heat takes some time to build up & cool down especially in our spacious vacation home. Please call whenever idiosyncrasies or problems arise.

A large, comfortable place to stay with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

The River Chalet was an unexpected surprise! The home is large with multiple levels which allowed for both the adults and kids to relax and have fun. The ping-pong tables and air hockey were also a BIG hit with everyone.
