About the property

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

Ski Granite Peak, they are making snow! 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 make a snowman, find a real turkey feather or the old traditional snipe hunt? 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 front of the fireplace 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 & 2 granddaughters. 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 Merrill

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. If you'd like a peek into a Honey Bee hive, just ask.

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 stay

  • 5 of 5

Spent 3 nights here and skied 2 days at Granite Peak. The accommodations were great. My wife and I brought my 15 year old daughter and two of her friends. The home was plenty spacious. It would be really nice setup to have two families share the home for a trip.

Wonderful home

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay here. We liked the location because it was close to Granite Peak and snowboarding there was really the reason we came to the area. It was very clean and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable. We really liked all the sitting areas. Sometimes you just can't sleep for one reason or another but there's nowhere to go without disturbing someone and that wasn't the case here. We were surprised there was still so much ice on the river and it allowed the fisherman of the group to try his luck and also some of the others to get out on the river to view the awsome star show. We also enjoyed the huge back yard and fire pit. On the negative side, gates at the stairs would have been great as that 15 month old had to be watched constantly, the buildup of ice as you go out the back door was a little treacherous and in my mind, when it says it sleeps 12, that should mean 12 beds, not 10. We still had a wonderful time though and we thank you for opening up your place to our group.

Great space, nicely appointed kitchen, playroom a plus. We skied only 20 minutes from Granite Peak. Huge mudroom with plenty of room for 8 full sets of ski equipment.
