Weyerhauser House

The Witt-Blue-Bachmans completed our annual winter cross country ski extravaganza. This year was very special because there was no snow and we didn't ski at all. Luckily we decided to get an airbnb in Weyerhauser, WI based on it's cool modern look. The weather topped out at 60 degrees so we spent a lot of time eating, playing trains and walking on the lake. And also not wearing much winter clothes. So weird and so fun.
Here are some photos I snapped of the house. It really was just as cool and beautiful as airbnb promised. The location seemed very private and with no motors allowed on the lake (and the fact that there weren't many others staying on the lake) it was very quiet. I hope we can go back in the summer because the little point (that Bowie accurately named "Deer Poop Island") that led to the water seemed like a great spot for a picnic and I would love to utilize the porch and the fire pit.

Here we are pulling Bowie around in a sled on the ice:

The home had some cool features like a ping pong table (which is a sport the Witt's take almost as seriously as cross country skiing) and an old typewriter.

We did manager to get into the closest small town of Chetek. We considered moving there because it had a super cool old time vibe with diners and antique stores and a bakery with, I kid you not, the best donuts I'd had it my entire life. Get the buttermilk donuts if you're ever in Chetek on a Saturday. There was also a creepy artist studio where a woman made paintings of cats and circus freaks. In addition, she had a sculpture of an alien head in a box. I don't have pictures of this so you just need to go there and check it out for yourself.
Here's a link to the home on airbnb. Our only complaint was there was no toaster. If you happen to go please bring us back the top to our martini shaker.
