Our cozy farmhouse is close to town but in the country, just five minutes from Ashland's best restaurants, twenty miles from Bayfield, the gateway to the Apostle Islands and close access to bike, ATV and snowmobile trails, plus, waterfalls, and beaches. This Farmhouse Retreat is a duplex (Whimsy being the lower apartment). It's inviting, and oooooh so homey! It's like going to gramma's house...
It's great for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.. We provide WIFI but have no TV.

The space
Whimsy is homey, welcoming and very spacious. It was my grandparents home that I visited with my family every Sunday evening. Sunday always held great anticipation as we headed out to Grampa and Gramma's farm. We hope you to will come with great anticipation for a wonderful stay in the country, yet so so close to town.

You're welcome to enjoy our sweet farm animals as you sit out in the sun-porch or better yet, take a walk up the drive of our drive and greet our horses, cows, donkeys and chickens.

Guest access
You will have the entire lower apartment of The Homestead, with its own outside entrance. It's whimsical 800 square feet has a private bedroom with a queen sized bed, a window seat room with a cozy reading nook (bed sized the same as a twin bed), a sun porch with a double futon, a full bath and a spacious fully equipped kitchen. We advertise it to accommodate 4 people but sometimes, perhaps, we can squeeze in a fifth... but you must promise to keep the noise level down and be considerate of your upstairs neighbors. There is an extra $10 charge, per person, per night, beyond two people.

Other things to note
Whimsy is the lower suite of a duplex. It is a quiet retreat, not a place for excessive noise or partying. It is an old farmhouse and mindfulness of the upstairs guests is important.

This property has a nicely equipped kitchen. We ask that you leave the kitchen in the clean condition you have found it in upon check-in. If it takes us an hour or two to clean the kitchen after you, you can be sure we will include that detail in your exiting review.

We love people and have so enjoyed creating a place for people to come and be refreshed along life's highway. Come experience our country living less than a mile from the city limits of Ashland, just minutes from Lake Superior, a few great restaurants and some fun shops. Though many folks come and just love hanging here on our wonderful 40 country acres.
