A Tree House Vacation in Wisconsin
June 24, 2011 § 2 Comments
When I was growing up all I wanted in life was a tree house. Man were they cool. And we had the perfect tree for it, which of course my parents had cut down for fear that a large storm could take it out and crush the house.
But the dream still lives! Check out this beautiful and rustic tree house rental at Lake Wandawega in Wisconsin. Featured in Chicago Home + Garden and Remodelista, I’m not the only one who loves what this rental has to offer.
The Wandawega Lake Resort website is charming, well put together, and funny to boot. As it says:
Here at Camp Wandawega we consider ourselves the definition of rustic.
If you require sheets with a thread count higher than 50, a concierge, new box springs and the like, there are dozens of lovely options in the area. We’ve got a list we’ll be glad to send you. (We are not for the meek, the squeamish or any other synonym for folks who don’t like roughing it)
Expect: Ladybugs on your pillow and the occasional cricket if you’re lucky. The errant chipmunk doing laps around your cabin. (Possibly larger mammals: we have raccoon squatters who seem to enjoy camping as well) Camp showers- we’re talking old school, Boy Scout camp, concrete floors, partial open air kinda’ thing. Toads hang out there on a regular basis, so scoot over.
So why on earth do folks want to come here?
Complete absence of pretense. A lake with virtually no traffic, 25 acres of untouched woods, and trails filled with wildlife.
- A million stars, and even more birds
- The opportunity to walk out your door to a lake
- All the fishing gear, boats, sports equipment, smoring tools, and grill are included in your stay
- A few retro Schwinns to explore the area
- Rope swings that will launch you far beyond your comfort zone
- And much more…
I hope they still have some openings left. I’d love to spend a weekend drinking beer and practicing my boyscout preparedness!
