About Dan and Kathy
We fell in love with this century old farm at first sight, with no intention other than returning the property to its original glory. After several years of cleaning, refinishing, and painting the property is nearing its full potential. We enjoyed going to our little retreat (only 11 miles away from our own old farm house), but realized we wanted to share it with others.
Dan and Kathy purchased this Farmhouse in 2008
Why Dan and Kathy chose Helvetia
We have a love for century old farms, history, and antiques. We needed to keep this home from falling into more disrepair.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
This home has such a special feel, the minute you drive in. We loved the quiet lakefront and peaceful setting. From the nice little kitchen, the pretty sunroom (with a view of the lake), to the fireplace in the living room, we fell in love with the property right away!

Just what we needed
My family spent 3 days at the farm and it was lovely. Quiet and peaceful, unless you wanted to play Frisbee in the huge yard, hike down the walking trail, row across the lake or go cycling down the country roads through the forests and fields. From the jacuzzi to the fire ring to the well equipped kitchen, everything was exactly where and how we needed it. The house was immaculately clean and the beds were comfy as well. The landscaping and plants throughout the house and property were beautiful. Kathy was an excellent host and we will definitely stay here again when we are up this way.
Can't Wait to Return Next Summer!
This was the perfect long weekend for our family. The house was super clean and spacious. There was tons of grass to run and play for our 2.5- and 5-year old. And the lake was "just the right size" for our kids. It was relaxing for all of us, and it gave us the opportunity to unplug and enjoy the outdoors (although the house does have WiFi when needed). Kathy met us at the property, showed us around, and was so responsive throughout the whole process. We look forward to returning again next summer for a family getaway! Thank you Kathy and Dan!
We were looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway and this place was perfect!! The house was so cute and the property was beautiful. Spent a lot of time outside just walking the paths and hanging out by the fire. Really nice road for a bike ride nearby; saw lots of wildlife...deer, turkeys, cranes. We would defined stay here again!!
Serene, Peaceful, Relaxing
We loved our stay at the farmhouse! We stayed for 10 days and it was wonderful. There was plenty of room for our boys to run and explore without concern for them disturbing anyone else. We caught fish every time we went out in the boat.
The owners were very friendly and accommodating and had many items available for use on the property. And there was plenty of room for visitors as well.
We highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away and relax out in the country.
Hideaway Near Iola
This property was IDEAL for our recent trip to the Iola Old Car Show! I first attended the show in 1985 and previously I've stayed in Wausau, Stevens Point and Plover. What a joy not to have to drive the longer distance and deal with backed up traffic.
It was so refreshing to be able to be at the show in 5 minutes. At the end of a long day at the show, just a short drive to our "home" and we could grab a quick shower to freshen up and then either prepare our evening meal in the well equipped kitchen or grill out in the yard.
An evening bonfire was the perfect way to spend our last night.
Dan and Kathy were very accomodating and a pleasure to deal with. Looking forward to staying here many times in the future.
