• Wausau is Wausome!

About a year ago, we heard someone describe Wausau as “Wausome” and frankly we couldn’t think of a better word to describe this amazing small city in Central Wisconsin.  Wausau is Wausome!  It’s an amazing place to live and a fantastic place to visit.  It has a vibrant arts and cultural scene (including two renowned museums and a world class theater), great restaurants, one of the nicest downtowns in all of Wisconsin, friendly people, affordable lodging, two gorgeous and well-preserved historic districts, the best ski resort in Wisconsin (and one of the top resorts in the midwest), an Olympic qualifying kayaking and canoeing course, two fantastic micro-breweries (three, if you include the Great Dane which has multiple locations in Wisconsin), a class “B” biking rating, a wonderful new distillery and, of course, the natural beauty of northern Wisconsin.  It’s the best place Sara and I have ever lived and it’s a place where we consistently hear our guests say “we never knew Wausau was such an amazing place.”  Even our young adult children who have lived in Madison and the Twin Cities say they love Wausau.

We hope you decide to visit.  We are absolutely sure you will love Wausau. Almost every guest we’ve had has said they want to come back and many have expressed an interest in someday moving here.
