    My husband, and dogs and I stayed here for 3 nights. The cabin is built as solid as a rock! It is made and furnished with barn wood, which give the cabin a very unique look. Roxanne's decorating is one-of-a-kind. So much detail and very tasteful. The heated flooring was perfect for heating this space - kept the cabin at a very comfortable temp - much better than forced air. The place is fully furnished, even a vacuum was available to take care of the sand that was tracked in. The stairs to the loft are like walking on cement, that is how well they are built. No squeaky wood! I can't say enough about how cool and well built this place is. There are a lot of windows to allow light in, which was really nice when it was chilly. The property is just beautiful - the cabins sits on 5 secluded acres. You could hear a pin drop at night, it was that quiet. We saw a lot of different birds and the fire pit was a welcome friend on the chilly evenings. We met Carl when we arrived, what a nice, genuine, down to earth guy. You can tell he takes a lot of pride in his work. We were so impressed with this cabin and location, we are definitely going to return sometime after the first of the year. Timbered Treasure is the perfect name for this cabin!!!! Looking forward to our return. Sincerely, The Weils

    Greenbush Cottage spring break getaway

    This is a very nice 3 bedroom getaway. The bathroom/shower in the master bedroom is multi-head and was a like getting a mini massage each day. The kitchen was beautiful and fully stocked. We enjoyed all of the decorations and the woodwork throughout the house. We had our dogs with us and they felt right at home and there was plenty of places close by to take them for walks. We look forward to our next visit.

    Very nice cabin. It's more of a house than a cabin. Very country, cozy feel with everything you need to get a good nights rest and easily prepare great meals and get out and enjoy the outdoors. We had a great weekend even though the fish didn't cooperate. We are already planning another trip next year and we will fish Castle Rock.

    Great Time Snowmobiling

    5/5 Stayed Dec 1, 2012

    We found Carl's Cabin when our plans to snowmobile in the UP changed with more snow in the Dells area than the UP. What a great place! We were able to catch the trails right from the cabin. The decor and the cabin overall were so homey and warm. Wonderful stay!

    family get-together close to WI Dells

    5/5 Stayed Nov 1, 2012

    We rented this cabin near WI Dells in between family in MPLS and MI and got together over Thanksgiving and including going into WI Dells for a day at a waterpark. Very satisfied, very nice place, including accessibility for one child who is in a wheelchair.

    What a wonderful place

    5/5 Stayed Aug 1, 2012

    This rustic cabin and all the decor is over the top! Everything needed was there. Close enough to enjoy the Dells, and far enough away to rest in the quiet woodsy atmosphere. The sunroom makes a perfect game room, while others can visit on the comfy couches, in the dining room, or around a campfire. Everything is clean, the beds are comfortable, and the showers are great. Hope to stay again next year!

    The Greenbust Retreat rental house was great. The house itself was very welcoming and homey. We had a group of 8 and everyone slept comfortably. The temperature was in the triple digits when we stayed and the house still remained cool. We met Carl and he seems like a great person. The overall experience at Carl's Cabin was fantastic.

    great time

    4/5 Stayed Jul 1, 2015

    The cabin was beautiful, very private. I went to the cabin with my children, who r over 20, and two dogs. The cabin is spacious and very nicely laid out, although there could have been less spiders on the outside door frames. But that was not a problem at all. The cabin was fully loaded with games, movies, potts, pans and silverware.

    We were lucky enough to win two free nights at this amazing cabin that Carl had donated at the Chocolate Affair in Adams. This was by far the best thing we have ever won. My husband and I along with another family of 6 stayed there last weekend. It was amazing. Three days with 4 adults and 4 kids and we never turned on the TV with DVD's or used any electronic's except for a few text messages to people who wanted to check out the cabin. We sat around the campfire or in the cabin and just played games and chatted about previous vacations we have all spent together. This was everyone's favorite by far. Everything you can think of is included except your food. We also bought our own Ninja blender for our traditional chocolate shakes we always have to make. Carl is so easy to work with and stopped by to meet the lucky winner of his very generous donation. We wouldn't change a thing and would love to return there anytime. We would highly recommend this cabin to everyone we know!!!

    Home away from home!

    We stayed at Carl's Cabins Greenbush Retreat Cottage and were pleasantly surprised. The pictures online were nice, but the cabin in person was even better. Kitchen was large and stocked with dishes and pots and pans, microwave, stove, refrigerator and coffee pot. The cabin was clean and cozy. Linens were fresh and the cottage was very kid friendly. Bathrooms were very nice, especially the master bath shower. Carl was great to work with, very friendly and accommodating. There were board games provided and even a scavenger hunt list. Carl has thought of everything! The cabin itself is nice and secluded surrounded by nature in the woods but the towns of Friendship and Adams were about 6 minutes away, where you can find anything you need. The Dells were about a half hour, but a very nice and easy drive. We had a great vacation and plan to make the Greenbush Retreat a yearly vacation destination for our family.

    Excellent place to stay!!

    4/5 Stayed Jun 1, 2012

    We picked this spot because it was remote enough for relaxing privacy and close enough to the things we wanted to do, like visit the Dells, go fishing and boating, visit parks and just sight see. There were 4 adults and 4 teenagers and everyone had a good time. The cabin and it's surroundings are very relaxing and the decor was right up our alley as much of it was from reclaimed barn wood that made beautiful furniture and decorative pieces. To go along with that were the beautiful quilts! I would certainly recommend this to anyone who wants to escape the hustle and bustle and just get away to relax. If you're lucky and get up early to enjoy sitting on the porch as I did, maybe you'll get to see the two red fox that like to come visit the camp fire area :)

    My friends and I wanted to have a nice get away from the stresses of work and school so we decided to go on a trip to Wisconsin. First of all, Carl is AMAZING! He had everything ready for us and is genuinely a nice and cool guy. Everything went so smoothly and we had the time of our lives! The location itself was very peaceful and quiet and at night, it is amazing to look up and see all the stars. The place is very updated, both modern and cozy at the same time. We would definitely stay here again. My friends and I still talk about the trip a year later! We're coming back again soon!

    Great Experience at Carl's Cabin

    5/5 Stayed Aug 1, 2011

    My family just spent 4 nights at the Greenbush Retreat. We were pleasantly surprised at how new and clean the cabin was. Carl had it fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. It was quiet and private. It was fairly close to some large lakes and hiking trails which we took advantage of. Carl met us when we arrived to make sure everything was fine. He was a very pleasant man and made us feel very welcome. We have two dogs and it was difficult to find a place that would allow pets. Carl allowed us to bring our dogs which was so nice, too. We had only four adults, so the cabin was ample and spacious for us. It clearly could hold 8 people comfortably. We highly recommend this cabin. It was a great experience.

    Beautiful & Clean

    5/5 Stayed Aug 1, 2011

    We stayed at this cabin for a weekend getaway w/ two other familes and their kids. We had lots of room. The place is very clean. And had everything you needed. Very close to friendship beach and to resturants. And at night we would sit back and relax and have a fire. Carl was great to work with. Thank you for giving us a great weekend at your place right before the kids had to go back to school. They will always remember the fun they had there. And we hope to stay at the cabin again real soon. The kids are asking when we can go back. So if you are looking for somewhere to stay I highly recommend Carl's cabin.

    Wonderful wonderful wonder

    5/5 Stayed Feb 1, 2011

    The Greenbush Retreat is so much more than a cabin. It is a beautiful home built by Carl and his sons. When I arrived, Carl already had a fire burning in the wood stove which made the place even more inviting. The home is beautiful, tastefully decorated and has all the conveniences of home. The location is very private and you feel like you're in the middle of the forest. It was a wonderfully relaxing weekend and we were sorry to leave. We will definitely be returning to Carl's Cabins.

    Great Family place - Quiet and secluded

    5/5 Stayed Jul 1, 2010

    We had a wonderful relaxing time at the Carl's cabin! Close to activities and things to do. We made last minute booking on this place and were a large group with kids. We used Carl's cabin as our long weekend getaway. This is a beautiful, quiet and secluded area with lots to do nearby including Dells which is a short drive; no disappointments! This is newly built house,nicely furnished by its owner, tastefully decorated. Plenty of room for our families. Its owner Carl obviously takes pride in his home, and is very caring and in ensuring that prospective tenants have all their needs taken care of. Kids had a blast with biking around. Price is very reasonable compared to other properties near Dells. House is located in Friendship town. Phone service may not work some times but that was not an issue for us. Would definitely stay there again.

    Great Northwoods Retreat

    Great space. Easily accommodates 9 people. Comes fully furnished and with a fully equipped kitchen. Would highly recommend. Carl makes sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay.

    Another great experience

    5/5 Stayed Aug 1, 2016

    As before the place was ready for us with fresh towels and clean rooms. Carl was so gracious to allow us more time at the end of our stay to accomodate one last adventure, free of charge. I have definatley recommended this place to all my friends.

    My boyfriend and I stayed at Carl's Cabin (Greenbush Retreat) along with our 2 dogs. It was a great vacation. It was a nice and peaceful retreat away from our everyday busy lives. It was quiet and relaxing. The cabin fit us perfectly and enough rooms for the dogs to run around. Cabin was tucked back into the woods where you could see wildlife and not be bothered by busy roads. Thank you again for a wonderful stay!

    A great place to stay
