Outstanding Farm Fresh Meals and Hospitality, An Eventective User from Minneapolis, MN

We stayed in the comfortable Lower River Room. My husband took a little persuasion to even go there and now wants to return. His words: "relaxing", "peaceful", "friendly vibes", "learning experience." Dennis and Melanie made some memorable, delicious meals. Loved the wood-fired sauna. Thank you!


My Experiance, from Brunswick,WI

I attended a wedding here once & I must say it was an incredable one of a kind experiance! The land is so beautifully breathtaking there that you can't help but feel serenity when you walk through their organic gardens. Canoeing the Buffalo River was also relaxing as well as rewarding with seeing wildlife & watching the Blade Eagles! And dont get me started on the food which was beyond amazing with everything being fresh from their organic gardens & I had never tried a raw nut cake before.... WOW HOW DELICIOUS THAT WAS! I Am already planning on having my wedding there!
