Your Country Home Away From Home

About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathrooms with a Country View

Kyle's Place is your country home away from home. It is settled in a picturesque farm valley surrounded by woods in south western Dunn County, Wisconsin. It is approximately 16 miles from Menomonie. It is a place to come and relax, re-connect with your family and friends, and rejuvenate by spending time in the great outdoors. The property allows for walks and biking trails in the woods, seeing wildlife, bird-watching, hopping on the county ATV or snowmobile trail, riding bike, or sitting on the deck and enjoying the scenery.

Even though we are in a quiet, peaceful valley there are plenty of interests nearby:

* Four lakes within 10-20 minutes for boating, fishing, or swimming

* Red Cedar Bike Trail and River is approximately 8 miles away for using the trail for biking, cross-country skiing, or tubing/kayaking down the river

* Many local museums and historical sites in the area

* Local cheese factories with the famous Ellsworth cheese curds and possible tours available

* Antique stores in nearby towns

* Outdoor Water park approximately 25 minutes away

* A family fun amusement center with indoor water park and more approximately 40 miles away

* Scenic Highway 35 about 30 minutes away for sight-seeing the Mississippi River towns; perfect for your motorcycle ride

This is a two story home which includes three bedrooms, a family room with a pull-out queen size sofa, updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, two updated bathrooms, dining and living room with open concepts, and a laundry room for your convenience. Outdoor space provides decking with a grill and a patio area which includes a fire pit and hot tub.

We do not rent to groups under the ages of 35.

Kyle's Place is not a venue for parties or events.

Only paying guests may be on the property at all times.

About Diane

My husband has lived in this valley all of his life. He and I have been married for 34 years. Our farm land surrounds this home. Our farmstead and home is about a half a mile down the road.

Diane purchased this house in 2009

Why Diane chose Wisconsin

Our son bought this home in 2009. Tragically, our son died in a car accident November, 2011. We would like to retire to this home one day but the timing is not right for now. We have decided to turn it into a country get away.

What makes this house unique

Kyle's Place is very special to us and we hope family and friends come a make many happy memories here. We feel it is a little piece of "God's Country" in a quiet rural valley. It is a place to unite with nature and the great outdoors. The décor is part rustic and part modern. You will be able to relax, re-connect, and rejuvenate in our country home away from home.

Gorgeous home and surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our vacation. The valley was beautiful and we all relaxed in a well equipped home. Comfy beds with super soft sheets and luxurious bath towels. We love to cook and the kitchen had everything we needed. BBQ ribs on the grill taste better when you're outside on a spacious deck with large table. Hot tub and evenings spent by the fire pit completed our busy days. Had ice cream at the Creamery in Nelson; drove Route 35 to see the bluffs; Laura Ingalls Wilder museum and homestead; Bald Headed eagle rehabilitation and education center in Minnesota; Toured Mabel Tainter; Farmers Market (only open on Thursdays) in Baron County; drove around the country roads to see some of the most spectacular scenery in Wisconsin.

Thank you Jeff and Diane for sharing Kyle's Place with our family. We plan on visiting again next year.

Amazing Home and Views

I would definitely rent this house again. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery and updated amenities the house had to offer. No surrounding neighbors and just a short drive to Menomonie.

Galesville, Wi

Best ever!

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this special home have made this the most comfortable and beautiful home I have been to. The owners were great to work with. Had the weather cooperated we would have had a campfire and maybe used the hot tub. The quality of the house is not outdone by the linens, towels, blankets or the robes for the hot tub. Really they have provided everything anyone could want or need. Thank you Diane and Jeff for sharing your piece of heaven.

Nice Quiet place

Nice, well decorated, quiet place close to the cities to get away. The Hot tub was nice and relaxing and you can see so many stars at night.
