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 beautiful landscaping.

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.

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!

Beautiful inside and out!

  • 4 of 5

My immidate family stayed at this property while on a trip to a larger family reunion party over the weekend. We were not disappointed! We enjoyed the fire ring and took an early morning hike in the surrounding woods. Very quite and serene. The grounds are extremely well groomed and cared for ... as was the interior. Beautiful fixtures, floors and decor ... simple and elegant and welcoming. The only reason we did not give the home five stars is we do wish there was more seating for our group (7) to ALL gather comfortably around the fire or television areas together. We had one rainy day and had to split up between the fireplace room and downstairs TV area because there was not a place we could all fit comfortably together. Perhaps an additional couch in each room or a sectional around the TV.? BUT ... we would definatle come back here again and do highly recommend this home. It had everything we needed and the grounds were amazing! Thank you for sharing your lovely home!

Beautiful Home, Quiet Location, AMAZING Yard!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home mainly for the beautiful yard, and it did not disappoint! It is even prettier in person than in the pictures. We actually held a small outdoor wedding on the property, and it was absolutely perfect for the occasion. The lawn is huge and immaculately manicured. Being able to do everything (ceremony, pictures, reception) in one place was a great perk. The house itself was lovely as well. We had 8 guests staying in the home, and there was plenty of space for everyone. The dining room and upstairs living room have large windows with a lot of light and fantastic views, and were great places for us to hang out and relax. Doris and Sanjiv were both so great to work with – they were very quick to respond to questions/requests (and we had a lot) and went above and beyond to make our wedding day beautiful and our stay comfortable. I cannot say enough good things about them and the property! Overall our stay was amazing and we will definitely be back. Highly recommend!

Great escape

  • 5 of 5

Quite and relaxing atmosphere.. close to town and dining. The only issue we had during our stay was the Wi-fi. It was very slow and often than not if more than one person was connected it was very bad and wasn't worth trying to use.

Other than that we had a great return vistit to the Garden Chalet and hope to comeback again soon.

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.
