About the Property
ARTIST-OWNED, ART-FILLED ADULT ORIENTED PROPERTY. 3 NIGHT MIN., PRICE VARIES
Wonderful, private winter wonderland; cross country ski right out the door!
This totally private, four-acre, wooded lot is the site of this fabulous year-round home. Originally a Norwegian barn, this home has been reconstructed and added onto, resulting in a total of three bedrooms and two baths and another separate suite with bath. Owner is an artist and she has an art library and large suite suitable for painting and drawing. Serious scholars bring their manuscripts up here; good friends love to congregate here, finding the location a good mix of art galleries and restaurants, with outstanding quiet nights for great sleeping. Yogis tell me they find the spaces excellent for practicing and meditating.
Within one mile to The unique Pioneer Store, where you will find anything you have forgotten to bring!
Bicyclists will love the short jaunts to beaches; hardier bicyclists will love the hilly, longer routes!
Due to excessive wear and tear on the house by children, owner has decided to limit the house to 8 adult guests. There are MANY houses available to families; sadly, my house has sustained too much damage.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Frequent Art Fairs, Many Artists in Vicinity, great biking, close to The Clearing, within walking distance to an adorable old fashioned but fully stocked Pioneer Store - anything you forgot to bring they will have. This home is bikable to a wonderful park on Lake Michigan, also close to Rowley Bay and great for those of you who want to kayak/canoe the Mink River!
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: As a young girl, I loved property; any kind of property,vacant land or tiny cottage. I grew up to be an artist, mother and eventually a real estate agent specializing in distinctive properties.
Why the Owner Chose Ellison Bay, WI, USA:
This home appealed to me immediately due to its site: the White Pines, the orientation to the sun, the circular drive. It seems to have always been in the back of my imagination; it was love at first sight despite having many structural drawbacks. (I remedied the structural problems!)
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Screened in porches really appeal to me, and this one has a porch suitable for 8 chairs/gliders and a table. I can watch deer saunter through the field, see the little ears of fox as they pursue voles in the grass, watch brazen coyotes run in threesomes through the field. No other humans are visible, just nature! And yet, one mile away is the darling Pioneer Store, which amazingly stocks everything I may have forgotten to include for my stay! Mink River Conservancy is very nearby as well.
