Why Diane Rust chose Cumberland
This farm has been in my family since 1891 when my grandparents purchased the land from the Knapp-Stout Lumber Company. They cleared the land, built the farm, raised their family, and it has been the center of family activity since those days. In 2008 my husband and I completely renovated the house, inside and out, and it has since continued to provide the perfect gathering place for family and friends. We now would like to share this special place with you with the hope that you will enjoy your time in this special place as much as our family.

A lovely and warm place, and a great place for cooking and family gatherings
The Farmhouse Retreat has become one of my favorite places on the planet, and the place I always stay when I come back to visit family in Cumberland Wisconsin. I've stayed there three times, and will definitely do so again. The kitchen is well stocked with pretty much all the equipment you need to make cookies, roast turkeys, experiment with new recipes, and have family gatherings too. The beds are comfy and sleeping six to eight people is easy. Diane and Richard are very easy to work with, and can always be relied on to have the place ready for a warm and cozy visit. They clearly WANT this place to be well-used and well taken care of too. I also love that the farm house and land has been in Diane's family for more than one hundred years, and that the house has long-held family items in beautiful display.
The Farmhouse Retreat was a perfectly charming home away from home that allowed us to maintain our basic family routines. It was clean, quiet, well-maintained, and comfortable. Diane and Richard were welcoming, gracious hosts-- our 4 kids were instantly won over by the invitation to come see all of the things to do outside. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes/utensils/tools- I do use the kitchens when we rent, and this is the first time I haven't had to buy some utensil to supplement the cupboard. An extra bonus was the closet full of games in one of the bedrooms; the kids were quick to dive in and enjoy themselves. Finally, you can not beat the attraction for the city kid in hearing cows mooing just outside and watching tractors at work!
We stayed at the Farmhouse Retreat in May 2017 and found the place to be as perfect as advertised. The house is spacious and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. Our son enjoyed playing in the large backyard. We use VRBO frequently, and the owners were among the best we have worked with for a rental. They are responsive and will ensure you have a wonderful stay. We highly recommend this property.
Wonderful experience in July 2016
We stayed July 2016 and had a fantastic experience! We were here for a nieces wedding. The property way immaculate and very spacious. The yard was fantastic for kids- thanks for all the yard games and toys and especially pogo stick. I recommend this property for anyone seeking the quiet of country living. Also loved Cameron and Louie's Finer Meats!
Wonderfully relaxing family gathering space
We rented the Farmhouse Retreat as a place to gather with our adult children and grandkids during a family reunion being held in Cumberland. We were welcomed very graciously by Diane & Richard at arrival. It was great to learn a little the history of the home that we would be enjoying for the next few days. With both of us being raised on dairy farms it felt just like coming home for us here. The home had everything we needed to enjoy our weekend with our family. Thank you for opening up your beautiful home to us and we would definitely recommend your rental to anyone who is looking for a peaceful and relaxing getaway.
A Great Getaway
Diane & Richard were both so welcoming and their farmhouse is really a wonderful place to stay. We came into town to spend time with family and the house, the beautiful setting, trees, and outdoor games were a delightful surprise. I would highly recommend trying this place out, I know that we will be back in the future and will be telling people all about it! :)
During your stay at the Farmhouse Retreat enjoy the many outdoor activities available for you, such as badminton, croquet, horseshoes, ladder golf, youth and adult bikes. And there are a great many enjoyable activities nearby. For example, stop in at the huge weekly local Farmer's Market, visit many unique Antique stores and quaint shops in nearby towns, or try your luck at St. Croix Casino in Turtle Lake. On your way to Turtle Lake stop at the Ellsworth Cheese Factory in Comstock to taste their famous Wisconsin cheeses. Don't forget to stop at Louie's Finer Meats, where their brats and meats are multi-year world champion winners. Or enjoy a short drive to Hayward, the home of the American Birkebeiner, Lumberjack World Championships, and the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum. There is always something fun to do at or near the Farmhouse Retreat.
