Nestled on 1.3 acres, on Wisconsin’s oldest street, a home away from home awaits you. Use the house as a base to explore the beauty of the Driftless area, the vibrant energy of Mineral Point, or simply relax at home, reading, writing, cooking, napping and decompressing.

The house has been updated with modern conveniences but retains its old-world charm and elegance. A well equipped kitchen, super-comfy beds, and lots of natural light, make this perfect for a romantic getaway or family vacation.

The space
The 1700 sq ft house is a stones throw from a park with tennis courts and an amazing outdoor pool. It is a short walk (4-5minutes) to the Shakerag Alley Arts Center and the main High Street. Short hikes can be had within Mineral Point by climbing Merry Christmas hill. Close by places to visit include: House on the Rock, Governor Dodge State Park, Spring Green, American Players Theatre and more.

Where you’ll be

Mineral Point, Wisconsin, United States

Folks round town say the letters MP don’t just stand for Mineral Point, but are also code for Magical Place! And they are right, Mineral Point is where Wisconsin first began, steeped in a rich history it is now home to 60+ artists many of whom have galleries right on and around the main High Street. Modeled after the small villages of Cornwall, England you’ll feel at once at home, yet also transported back in time. You’ll be enchanted by the vibrant, creative community you’ll find and the incredible buzzing energy you’ll feel.

Many people have come for a weekend or short visit only to fall under the magical spell, and return (sometimes years later, sometimes just in a matter of weeks!) to make Mineral Point their permanent home.

Come and find your magical place in our great Mineral Point story!

Hello, I’m Etienne, I’m a writer and a Brit from London, who now chooses to live in the beautiful Driftless region. In addition to managing my Airbnb bookings, I run a consulting business working at the nexus of marketing and sustainability, and in my ‘spare’ time I run a farm raising grass fed, heritage breed sheep.

You can read my poetry inspired by the people and places of the region on insta-gram
(IG: DriftlessPoet)

I also write a column about my life in the Driftless in the local monthly publication ‘Voice of the River Valley’ (available online and in print).

I am smitten with Mineral Point and love that my guests get to experience their own magical adventures in this gorgeous part of the world.

Message me if you’d like tips and tricks for exploring the area further. Likewise I offer special rates for longer rentals, especially for those looking for a writer or artist in residence experience; please message me for details on that too.

I look forward to hearing from you!
