Less than five miles from Erin Hills, site of the hugely successful 2017 U.S. Open Golf Championship! Relax and re-energize at this secluded, private estate just two hours north of Chicago and 30 minutes from Milwaukee. Here you'll find acres of breathtaking gardens, ornamental waterfall ponds, a one-acre stocked pond and island, dense woods and walking trails, with an abundance of wildlife. Nature, calm & starlit nights await you!
The interior guest space consists of the entire second floor (four large bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a very spacious common entertainment area/library with a queen-sized sofa bed, full sectional and available air beds). Guests also have full and exclusive access to a generously apportioned garden level with fully equipped kitchen/laundry, entertainment area, sectional with pullout sofa, full bathroom, home gym with television, fully appointed wet bar and pool table. The exterior space encompasses lovingly tended shrub and flower gardens, a backdrop of natural hardwoods and glacial (mesic) forest, an organic vegetable garden, an antiquarian apple orchard, two ornamental ponds (one with koi), one large, stocked pond (catch and release) with an island and seating/grilling areas, two sweeping back decks and a front porch with swing. There is also a swing under the old oak tree in front, on which you can almost feel your cares melting away!
Guests have exclusive access to all of the second floor and the garden level floor, totaling some 5,000 square feet. The host couple occupies only the first level of the home. Guests are welcome to explore the entire grounds and enjoy all of the facilities. "Traveling light" is not a misnomer at this property; personal toiletries, along with plush robes and towels, (which are laundered regularly during your stay) are provided. There is even a professional massage table in the gym, and local massage therapists can be booked in advance for appointments.
Interakcija s gostima
Managing the property is the co-host's primary day-to-day responsibility, so she is very able and willing to interact with guests to the extent welcomed; however, she is also mindful that many guests choose this particular space for its privacy and serenity, and always wishes to respect that desire.
You may become so used to the peacefulness and natural beauty that you won't ever want to leave! In that case, long-term and repeat stays can be separately arranged!
We take our outside shoes off once inside the home.
No food or drink, except water, on the second (bedrooms) floor because of carpeting.
We maintain a non-smoking property.
