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 Elmwood

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.

We had a great family vacation at Kyle's Place. My mother is in a nearby nursing home and my father just passed in August. This was our first family get together after his death. Kyles's Place has everything to make it homey and a great retreat. My family likes to cook together and the kitchen is incredibly well furnished. Our family also have lost a son/brother so there was a lot of synergy with Kyle's Place---a good reminder to remember and celebrate those we love. Thank you for sharing your home. With gratitude, David

Loved every minute at this country home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us to stay during our trip to Wisconsin. Spent lots of time relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying the peace and quiet in this country home! Also loved exploring the trails on the property! Kyle's place was everything and more that we could have wished for. We are very grateful to Jeff and Diane for letting us stay at Kyle's place. Would go out of our way to stay here again!

Perfect location for our siblings get together and Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Kyle's Place is a fantastic home that has a great story... Enjoyed the scrapbook and the memories shared by the owner.

My siblings and I choose to meet here since it was close to Spring Valley where several of us went to high school and one of us had a class reunion. It is only a short drive to see Crystal Cave if you need to 'tourist'. Finding this gem in the middle of the hills was wonderful... The house has everything you might need to recharge your batteries.. Quiet, off the beaten path, a fire pit, a hot tub, no need to turn on the TV. You will not be disappointed.
