About this listing
This is a quiet, relaxing country setting with excellent views of the rolling hills and wildlife.
Katydid Ranch is a 40 acre organic/permaculture farm located 8 miles SE of Eau Claire, WI or 5 miles north of the Foster exit on I-94. Madison, WI is 2.75 hours away and Minneapolis, MN is 1.5 hours away. This is not a traditional farmhouse that you would normally picture. My house is fairly new, very clean, quiet and comfortable. I just started the organic farm enterprise and pastured poultry in 2012, so there is much yet to be done.
This space is ideal for 1-3 people, as there are 2 bedrooms, with one private bath, a living room and walk-out patio that are all yours when you stay here. There is an additional charge of $10/night if you need both bedrooms.
Many mornings, you can enjoy your coffee/tea on the front porch watching the sunrise. Evenings are a relaxing, cathartic experience as you can watch the sunset from the deck while sipping a glass of wine or cup of tea. You can bring food in to cook or purchase/pick your own organic herbs, produce, poultry, and eggs right from Katydid Ranch! Let this be a "landing point" for short trips or a destination vacation for your spiritual and physical renewal.
Within 10 miles, you will find University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire events, a (modest) wine route, apple orchard route, biking trails (there are hundreds of miles of Wisconsin trails that are linked together), hiking, canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding(BYOH), cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, snowmobile trails, Hobbs Observatory, Beaver Creek Reserve, and......well, you probably get the point.
You may also choose to simply stay at the farm and rest/relax.
Ala carte options horse boarding, Equine Assisted Learning sessions (life coaching humans, using horses), prepared meals, and guided meditation.
This is a quiet space to nourish the mind, body and spirit; to walk the property and take in the wildlife.
