About Doris and Sanjiv

We enjoy cooking at home and on vacation. Staying at a hotel does not allow for healthy home cooked meals and a vacation home is thus much preferred for all our travels. We do organic gardening at our home and just enjoy spending time outside whenever we can. The house in Wausau allows us to unwind and enjoy nature in the most beautiful and calm surroundings.

Doris and Sanjiv purchased this house in 2015

Why Doris and Sanjiv chose Wausau

We purchased the house because it was in such a spectacular location. We fell in love with it since it is such a jewel enveloped in a beautiful landscape.

What makes this house unique

Amazing vistas and gardens with a view of Rib Mountain. Access to hiking and cross country trails in private woods.

When Can We Move In?

  • 5 of 5

Our visit missed the magnolias, barely caught the lilacs but was timed perfectly for the iris, rose and peony explosion. Next week visitors will enjoy the day lilies! Whoever designed the landscape clearly had mad skills and beautiful taste. I mention the outside first because we meandered the grounds every day and explored the woods. If someone in your party likes frogs, do bring a net. The pond is another treasure with which to spend time. Swimming might be for the less city-type folks but I'm sure others a bit more brave would enjoy a dip. No lilly pads! Look out for an ornery red-winged black bird that protects the pond. Don't worry. Her squawk is worse than her swoop. We appreciated the chopped, dry wood and enjoyed gathering around the fire pit. The square footage of the home really gave our family a chance to spread out. Every room is spacious with something of interest right outside the window. The family room windows offers a spectacular view from the lawn to the TOPS of the pine trees. Get your morning coffee on and enjoy. Be prepared to wonder if the appliances are running because they are SO QUIET. :) You'll be well-rested after a slumber on quality mattresses and bedding. The large master bath, walk-in closet and basement bedrooms won't let you down. Set the indoor temperature to whatever you need to be comfortable. Shoot some hoops. Try Foosball again. Play some cards at the kitchen table and don't forget to cook! Everything you need to prepare food is there. We enjoyed zip-lining in Minocqua, hiking on Rib Mountain, mini-golf in Rothchild, a shooting range in Wausau and when it rained, we caught a movie in Merrill. Overall, this Garden Chalet is a wonderful place to enjoy with Wausau and the surrounding area offering tons of things to do.

Relaxing winter weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the chalet two years ago and returned this winter for another family gathering/birthday celebration. This stay was just as fantastic as the first! Beautiful property, comfortable beds, all the amenities we need, and plenty of space to spread out. Thanks again for a great weekend getaway!

Great winter fun!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in February. It was fantastic. We snowshoed and cross country skied during the days and enjoyed the fireplace inside during the evenings.

Beautiful property, an awesome place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely beautiful and spacious! So pleased that everything we needed was thought of…plenty of firewood, Christmas tree and decorations, grill. The well-equipped kitchen was fully stocked. The bedding and towels were comfy and upscale. There is plenty of room to play games with the group. Quiet area yet so close to town and to ski resort. The view was so tranquil. We had a very great time. Thank you Doris and Sanjiv!

Thanksgiving holiday visit

  • 5 of 5

We were able to share the home with my brother-in-law's family over the Thanksgiving holiday. Being close to our local family and yet have a quiet, comfortable place to stay was very nice. I brought along all my baking supplies to bake my pies and desserts for our family dinner and loved cooking in the spacious, open kitchen. The cousins enjoyed sharing the space and running around in the yard. This option was much better than booking hotel rooms! We highly recommend staying here and had a great time.

Notes on the property: Large bedrooms and the beds were very comfortable. The front "kids" room with bunk beds has french doors with curtains, so if you plan to use this room for adults, don't plan on a great deal of privacy. It is perfect for kids, though! The grounds were immaculately kept and had amazing views from every direction. Nice privacy in the country, but still conveniently close to Wausau. There are two Kwik Trip stores less than 10 minutes away for those last minute items. Wireless internet was available and had reliable connection and good speeds. Thermostat was easily regulated. An attached two-car garage was available for covered parking. Overall, an exceptional rental property!

Wausau is a beautiful little town located on rolling hills in Wisconsin with Rib Mountain as the backdrop. It is small enough to be cute, but just big enough to have grocery stores, fine dining and big box retailers in town so you have access to a full array of services.

You can hike, hunt, fish, ski and go boating all within minutes of this property. Or, you can just choose to relax in this incredibly comfortable home with lovely vistas from the living room.
