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!

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend get away and were lucky to have such amazing weather! The property was perfect for our family and had plenty of room so no one was crowded. The property was clean and had everything you could ever imagine for dishware, cooking, cleaning ,etc. The owners were absolutely wonderful to work with, they were so accommodating and they got back to any emails we had right away! They made everything so easy for us and it was truly a great experience working with them. We will definitely be staying at this property again and I would highly recommend it to anyone!!

Spacious and quiet

  • 5 of 5

The house (it's not a "cabin") is big with lots of space to spread out. We had various family show up over the course of our four days there and everyone loved the place, including being able to fish off the small pier on the river. Pretty much everything you need is there and Merrill is about 6 miles away if you need groceries, etc. Don't hesitate, it's a nice place.

Stayed for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful property. My only regret is that I was obligated elsewhere with family duties. I would have loved to take advantage of all of the things this rental had to offer - fire pit, canoes, etc. It was quite large for all of us and we were thrilled with the place. Thank you! We will definitely be back.
