My wife and I were in need of time away from Chicago and heard from a friend that this property would be the quiet we needed. Dead on! We arrived early morning on a great day. When we drove down the long driveway up to the house and saw the lake, we jumped out of the car and just sat on the adarondack chairs lakeside. We didn't even go in the house for 2 hours. It was peaceful and a perfect start to our stay.
The location is great. There is a lot to do in the area. We rented a boat from one of the marinas nearby and ate at an old supperclub in the Dells 30 minutes away. Friday and Saturday nights there are bands at various bar/restaurants around the lake. The closest is about 1 mile away. Another was 3 miles from the property that we went to for fish fry and dancing.
The house is clean and Castle Rock Lake is a mixture of peacefulness, fun and entertainment. Eveything is casual, which was also welcome.
We will be bringing our kids back up at the...
