Our 42nd wedding anniversary was upon us and of course....I the guy....was behind in my planning. I was on my way home from Fleet Farm so I decided to stop and check the place out. Kerri gave me a quick tour of the place and I was convinced that this would work. I went home and checked out their web site and was impressed by what seemed to be many creative options and the sense of friendliness and cooperation. I told them my needs which included hauling my truck 12 miles East so that we could do a kayak trip the next day. They were very cooperative. Next day I dropped off roses and a vase. They appeared nicely arranged in our bedroom when I got my wife there. The room was great. Everything was tastefully decorated. The bed was very comfortable. The scenerio is great. The hosts were very friendly including cracker and cheese and wine in the evening. The breakfast was delicious. Make sure you take a walk back to the Crystal River which is in their back yard. As soon as we got back there, a young fawn jumped into the river giving us a start and a show. The next day we kayaked the Waupaca River from Riverside Park to Weyawega. It was a beautiful trip with a huge nest of bald eagles providing extra entertainment. The next day we biked the Tomorrow River Rails to Trails trail from Scandinavia to Amherst for breakfast. There is great biking in Waupaca County. The list goes on. This is a great place and plenty to do.
