About the property

26000SQFT 4 BEDROOM HOUSE IN A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY SETTING. SLEEPS UP TO 19 PEOPLE

The main floor has a living room, kitchen, dining room, utility room, half bathroom, bedroom/den and a master bedroom with walk-in closet and attached bathroom. Upstairs has another living room, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. This is a perfect set-up for several families or a big group to all get together yet still have room to spread out. There is a big sandstone fireplace in the living room, this was made with the sandstone that was cleared from the neighboring fields years ago. The updated gas insert makes it easy to use and adds a wonderful homey feeling. A large TV is mounted above the fireplace with a DVD player and connections to hook a gaming system up to. Speakers in the ceiling provide great sound whether you are watching TV, playing a game or listening to music. The large kitchen is perfect for baking and cooking, everything you should need is provided except your food and imagination. The utility room has a washer, dryer and sink for your convenience.

About Leo and Katie

Leo and Katie have been married for 30 years and have 2 kids, a son Kyle and a daughter Michelle. They own and operate their own business together, recently celebrating 28 years in business. Leo was born and raised in Mauston, WI while Katie was born and raised in the neighboring town of WI Dells. They continue to live and work in Mauston. (just down the road from the rental)

Leo and Katie purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why Leo and Katie chose Mauston

The farm house has been in Leo's family since the early 1970's. Owned by his parents, this was a family run farm with everyone pitching in. Leo and Katie purchased the house in 2014 and decided to renovate the house and rent it out so everyone could enjoy the beautiful country setting and experience all this area has to offer. We hope you enjoy your stay and come to love the area as much as we do.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Close to lots of attractions and activities yet in a quiet country setting. Go to the lake or the Dells for the day and then come back and enjoy the peace and quite of this beautiful home.

Gorgeous home - clean, comfortable, perfect

  • 5 of 5

Leo and Katie clearly take pride in what they do - their house is beautiful. We stayed their with a few other couples, a toddler and a baby, and there was plenty of room to spread out but also large enough space to gather. Everything is clean, beds and furniture was comfortable, and the tv with surround sound was perfect for watching the Badger game. Would definitely stay here again!

Great vacation house

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful and spacious for our big group. Nice and quiet surroundings after a tiring day at the water parks. Owners were just a call away and very helpful.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us! We agree it is nice and relaxing after a day in the water parks. Being only 20 minutes away from WI Dells makes it easy to go play for the day and then come back to the Farmhouse to relax.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Such a gorgeous home! There was plenty of space for a group of 10 of us. We loved the large dinner table, living room fireplace, and heated bathroom floors. We had such a good time and are considering returning in the summer to utilize the spacious land to grill and spend some time outdoors. Thanks Katie and Leo!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with lots of space to accommodate everyone. The fireplace set a cozy mood and the kitchen brought everyone together like a family. The huge yard can be used for all sorts of activities although it was unfortunate we couldn't make use of it due to all the rain during our stay.

Also, the homeowners Leo and Katie were extremely welcoming and very responsive to ensure that our stay was comfortable and up to our expectations. Great people, wonderful house, a must see!

Spacious, modern including all the luxuries!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of women away for a crafting weekend. This very spacious home had every accommodation and the owners were fantastic at communicating and accommodating our particular requests. There were plenty of sofa's/couches/chairs & tables to make our stay very comfortable. We will absolutely plan another trip back here.

Great place for multiple family stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is great. Its an isolated farmhouse and was recently updated. Owners put a lot of thought on updating the property. We had a big group of friends and family stay here for a weekend. We had everything we were looking for and had a awesome time staying here. We hope to come back again.
