About this listing
Our comfortable two-story chalet with its large exposed beam ceilings and large brick fireplace is modern, but still has the charm and cozy feeling of a cabin. Centrally located close to skiing, boating, hiking, biking, casinos and great restaurants.
The inspiration for the name "Little House in the Big Woods" was a children's novel by Laura Ingalls Wilder published in 1932. The book was based on memories of Wilder's early childhood in the Big Woods near Pepin, Wisconsin, in the late 19th century.
The children of a frequent guest gave our home this name and we liked it so much that we adopted it as our own.
Our "Little House in the Big Woods" has three full bedrooms:Room #1-King Bed (upstairs),Room #2-Queen Bed (downstairs), Room #3 Two Bunk Beds(upstairs) plus a large walk-in closet upstairs that has been converted into an extra sleeping space "Woody's Den," a favorite among our Jr. guests. It has a full size bed with a slanted roof and no windows. Not ideal for adults.
There is a phone upstairs and downstairs free local calling. A calling card or 800 number is required for long distance access.
House is fully furnished. Kitchen is updated with gas stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, and all necessary cooking utensils and dishes.
