About the Property

Sleeps 4 , fully equiped kitchen, WIFI, in rural Ashland 30 min. from Bayfield

After a day of kayaking, shopping, hiking, beach combing, antiquing, cross country, sailing or just whatever you've been up to... think about coming home to the comfort of a beautifully restored and quaintly decorated farm house. The Homestead is conveniently located just minutes from the heart Ashland WI, with easy access to Bayfield, The Apostle Islands, the Brule River, Cooper Falls State Park and Hayward/Cable (Birkie).

This little farmhouse we call The Homestead, is actually a duplex. Both have a full kitchen fully equipped. The upper suite (apartment) called "Little Scandinavia" is 600 square feet has a bedroom with queen bed, living area, bathroom and kitchen. The lower suite (apartment) called "Times Past" is 900 square feet and has a bedroom with a queen bed, a large living room, kitchen, bathroom, and a sun porch with a double futon. WIFI is available for guest use.

Come enjoy the country, so close to town. Take a walk up the road to enjoy the farm animals at the nearby inn, or better yet, hire Mark to hitch up the horses for a sleigh or wagon ride. This farmhouse was the home of Kelly's grandparents and great-grandparents. We have enjoyed the journey of restoring and decorating it, to make it into a home away from home, for you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are Mark and Kelly. The owners and caretakers of 'The Homestead'. It is dear to our heart as it was the home of my (Kelly) grandparents and great-grandparents. Every Sunday evening was spent with my grandpa and gramma in the country (and many other times too). Nine years ago we built our B&B, Second Wind Country Inn to the south of my grandparents old home in the back cow pasture. Our children are the fifth generation to live on this land. We recently acquired this old farmhouse and market it hand in hand with our B&B. So we live at the inn just south of 'The Homestead'. My hubby drives horses similar to what farmed these old fields in the early 1900's just like my great-grandpa. He also still putters on our 40 acres with my grandpa's old 8N tractor. Come take it in...Come enjoy the country...

Why the Owner Chose Ashland, WI, USA:
Every Sunday evening was spent at this old farmhouse. I (Kelly) loved coming here to see my grandparents. I spent many of hours with grandpa at the barn playing in the hay mow, loving up the cats and helping Grandpa milk the cows.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
This sweet farmhouse is charming and inviting. It's the perfect place for the perfect get-a-way.
