This farmhouse provides a clean, spacious home in a quiet rural setting. It's perfect for a larger family that requires a little extra room and comfortably sleeps ten people. The house has two full bathrooms, a well-stocked kitchen, dining room, living room, playroom, sun porch, and laundry room. The bedrooms include three queen beds, two twin beds, a sofa sleeper, futon, and an extra twin trundle bed for overflow in the laundry room. It's within twenty minutes or less of Wausau and Stevens Point, Granite Peak Ski Area, Nine Mile Recreation Area, Central Wisconsin Convention Center, Central Wisconsin Airport, University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, the Green Circle Trail, and just 2 miles from Lake DuBay (fishing and boating).
The property offers private wooded hiking trails along the Little Eau Claire river, great birding opportunities. Early spring and fall offer kayaking, canoeing when water levels are higher. Winter offers trails for snowshoeing, cross country skiing (not groomed) and property connected to Portage County snowmobile trail system. Expect to see plenty of wildlife and summer evenings can be enjoyed from the sun porch watching hummingbirds at our feeders.
Although it's been nearly twenty years since the farm was used as a dairy farm, the barn, silo, and numerous outbuildings allow one to step back in time and imagine what life was once like on the farm. Today, you might be greeted by friendly chickens and turkeys. The acreage is used for traditional crop rotation and also a Christmas tree plantation supplying an onsite choose and cut retail farm. So, depending on the season, active farming, planting, and harvesting may be witnessed. If bored, you might be asked to bail hay or shear a few hundred Christmas trees ;)
