Property description

On a country road just outside of New Richmond, Wisconsin, our property is located on 30 acres of country charm in the beautiful St. Croix Valley. As soon as you drop into the wooded surroundings, you will discover an array of flowers surrounding your cozy getaway home. The 4500+ square foot home provides lots of spacious privacy for a secluded atmosphere.

The year round escape that sleeps 8 guests offers a heated indoor pool, and private tennis court, After drawing straws to see who gets the exquisite master bedroom with jetted tub and 1500 square foot balcony, all other quests can choose from 3 additional cozy & comfy bedroom suites. The old-fashioned hard wood floors will lead you into many other nooks and crannies, where you can curl up and read a book, or rock on the front porch swing and listen to nature at its best.

Not only is this gorgeous escape just minutes from the Twin cities, it's also minutes away from historic downtown Stillwater, Minnesota, and beautiful downtown Hudson, Wisconsin. The River Valley is vibrant and alive all year round, so have fun discovering all the sites and shopping when and if you venture out. Willow River State Park is 5 minutes away, if you feel like hiking or cross-country skiing on groomed trails. For the die-hard golfers, there are 5 major golf courses within minutes. No matter what you decide to put first on your list, you will always feel refreshed to just breathe in the country air.

Discover all of the pristine beauty and tranquility that this home and acreage provides. Enjoy the plush mattresses in every suite, the fully equipped galley kitchen with a classic 6-burner nickel silver stove that will delight the gourmet cook, the backyard patio with a retractable awning, and a patio bar that will entertain the backyard spectators, and bird watchers. The casual décor combines an eclectic mix of old and new that instantly provides a welcoming setting. Our goal is to make this experience as enjoyable and refreshing as possible, so that by checkout you’ll feel memories were made. See you soon!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: Horse enthusiast, hobbies are gardening, playing tennis, and grilling in the back yard.

Why the Owner Chose New Richmond, WI, USA:
There's nothing better than fresh country air! Quiet and peaceful when you're home, yet close enough to the cities for upscale shopping and dining. The town of New Richmond also has a few really nice pubs and restaurants: Champs on Main St., Ready Randy's, Meisters Bar, Table 65, and the Willow River Inn for dining and dancing (they're all within 10 minutes.. Family Fresh grocery in New Richmond, and County Market in Hudson have fresh bakerys and great deli's. You also have to check out Bass Lake Cheese Factory if you like fantastic cheeses, jellies, jams, local wine and other treats. The summer time is the best time, if you want to stroll the banks of the St.Croix River. All along the river there are so many fantastic places to eat and shop. The antique stores are plentiful. Google St.Croix Valley for more tourism info.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
It's a hop, skip and jump from the cities; with the price of gasoline and limited traveling time, you get here in a jiffy. Private beach on site, stroll across the pasture and the lake lot is at your disposal. Take a thermos of coffee, or a nice bottle of local wine and sit under the lake lot's pergola, or at the end of the dock to watch the sunset and listen to the loons calling, and the frogs croaking. If you want to bring your bikes, or take a walk on the country roads, it's never too congested. There is a bulletin board in the kitchen area that has a few map books posted that will give you a few ideas for venturing out. Faith Community Church in Hudson, or the Bridge in Somerset have great services for those you like to worship on Sunday mornings. If you're a nature lover, then you shouldn't be disappointed once you arrive. Don't forget to bring your racquets if you play tennis, or your bathing suit and towels if you like to swim. If you prefer to just sit and read a book, or take a nap, there are plenty of couches, beds, and swings to unwind. If you want to order groceries online from New Richmond's Family Fresh Grocery store, they will have everything ready to go, and they will also load your groceries in your car. No rowdiness or one day parties allowed. The preferred amount of guests is 8, ten is an exception.
