  • Read and Learn Tarot At the Lake
    Everyone has intuition so anyone can listen and read it accurately. Your session will consist of: 1) An individual intuitive reading 2) Then teach you how to do it with each performing a personal reading 3) Send you home with instructions and spiritual tool recommendations. I can do at my place, where you are staying in the area (if 30 minutes or less), or via zoom. The choice is up to each participant Here are some of my reviews. Suzanne is a gifted medium who instantly tapped into a meaningful connection. Steele eased my first-time jitters with her kindness, taking her time, finding deeper guidance than I ever expected from a single reading. I found her reading possessed spot-on relevance and I felt her presence was warm, inviting, full of light and encouragement. I highly recommend this tarot reading experience to anyone seeking higher guidance in any aspect of life, whether you've had prior readings with other mediums or if this is your first experience. I will definitely continue working with Steele because she exudes generosity of spirit and compassion beyond measure. Her reading was a pleasure, something I wish to experience again. Jenn Diamond

  • Mix Organic Cosmetics and Skincare
    Each week we create a new experience for you to enjoy. Come in to learn how to make an organic skincare treat made just for you, by you. The workshops rotate weekly throughout the year from 20 different options including (but not limited to): lotion, makeup, bath bombs and lip balm. You will begin by learning about the history of the product you are making that week and then about each individual ingredient you can choose to personalize the product just for you. You have the opportunity to pick your own base oils, colors, scents and additives while learning how to incorporate them into the product of the week. As we spend about 30-40 minutes making the product each person will get the opportunity to experience the individual ingredients and see how others are blending them to get their own unique product. You will then go home with a completed product made by you. Whether it is a lip gloss, room spray or dry shampoo you will get to enjoy your handmade creation right away. We have designed a new workshop format to keep us all safe, but allow the fun to return! Book online for your preferred date and time. At this time, only 4 participants will be allowed per hour (unless other arrangements are made) and masks must be worn. We also offer private classes for larger groups traveling together. Other things to note If you would like to know exactly what we are making on the week you will be in town you can find the schedule. We do not use any wheat, corn, nut dairy or soy ingredients in the products.

  • Pastry chef hosts a class
    You will be greeted with French press coffee or champagne in the sun porch while guests arrive. We will learn a little about the history of the recipes and food we will play with, then I will present a chef demo. Next, it's your turn to get up and help cook and bake! While the food is cooking, you will relax with good music and appetizers. At the end of the class you will enjoy the fruits of your labor and leave with newfound confidence in the kitchen! This is a great team builder, or fun for couples or singles! Other things to note Don't worry about dressing up, or how much you know about cooking! I have some fancy training, but I have always thought of myself as a home cook. I went to pastry school to learn how to make more dessert! Nothing gives me more joy than making people feel at home and eat and drink well!

Your guide to Wisconsin

Welcome to Wisconsin

Wisconsin offers some of the most varied and beautiful terrain in the Midwest. People from outside the Great Lakes states are always surprised to discover that the eastern edge of Wisconsin is America’s third coast, with dramatic bluffs over Lakes Superior and Michigan, massive ships docked at the ports, and placid beaches. The Northwoods, a region stretching across the top third of the state, is a stunning expanse of pines and maples riddled with freshwater lakes. In the southwest, rocky buttes and rolling hills cover the Driftless Area. There’s a reason outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, ATV riding, and cross-country skiing are so big here.

But the landscape isn’t the only appeal. Milwaukee buzzes with energy and creativity. In Madison, the state’s food-obsessed capital, the glorious farmers’ market supplies world-caliber restaurants. Whether you’re passing through tiny towns tucked amid the cornfields or eating Friday night fish fry at a lakeside supper club, it’s hard not to fall in love with Wisconsin.

How do I get around Wisconsin?

Wisconsin has two major airports with international flights — Milwaukee (MKE) and Madison/Dane County (MSN) — as well as regional airports in Appleton (ATW), Eau Claire (EAU), Green Bay (GRB), La Crosse (LSE), and Rhinelander (RHI), all of which primarily connect to the main Midwestern hubs. Amtrak’s Empire Builder train crosses Wisconsin en route from Chicago to Seattle, making a number of stops in the state, and Greyhound and Amtrak Thruway offer many more intercity routes. If your destination is the vast Northwoods or other rural parts of Wisconsin, you’ll definitely want to have your own car — perhaps with a boat in tow.

When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Wisconsin?

Wisconsin’s four seasons shout at you in all caps. In winter, there are snowdrifts that reach your shoulder and temperatures below the freezing point. But Wisconsinites make the most of the season with activities such as the annual snow sculpting competition in Lake Geneva, ice fishing in the middle of the massive Lake Winnebago, or weekly snowshoe baseball games in the villages of the Northwoods. Summer is just as dramatic, a time of year when Wisconsinites spend as little time as possible indoors. You’ll find arts festivals and farmers’ markets all summer long in the cities and fishing boats on every lake. Nearly every Native American tribe hosts a powwow that brings people from all over for dancing, singing, and food.

The farther north you go, the shorter the spring and fall. That doesn’t make either season any less lovely. Every plant in the state rushes to put out its leaves and flowers in April and May. Fall comes on fast in a glorious profusion of reds and yellows — not to mention Oktoberfest celebrations all over the state.

What are the top things to do in Wisconsin?


Milwaukee has spectacular views of Lake Michigan, ornate factories and churches, and a thrumming nightlife scene. With a new symphony hall, improvements to the Milwaukee Art Museum and America’s Black Holocaust Museum, and a patio-lined Riverwalk through the heart of town, the city grows more charming every year. You can stroll along the shore at Lakeside Park, kayak on the Milwaukee River, tour houses designed by famous architects, or spend the day boutique-hopping. Milwaukee’s old nickname, Brew City, endures in the dozens of microbreweries and pubs all over town.

Door County

Just north of Green Bay, a pointy little finger of land juts into Lake Michigan. That’s Door County, whose rugged coasts and 35 islands are a popular summer destination for city-dwelling Wisconsinites. The area is rural enough to have preserved the architecture and culture of its Belgian and Scandinavian settlers. Check out the Sturgeon Bay lighthouse, the Belgian roadside chapels (and rice pie) surrounding Brussels, the old harbor at Ephraim, and the Stavkirke, a breathtaking recreation of a Nordic church, on Washington Island.

Driftless Area

If you’re accustomed to the Midwestern plains, the limestone towers and undulating hills of the Driftless Area may cause a shock: The glaciers that flattened the center of North America missed this 24,000-square-mile region. In the Wisconsin stretch, the winding Kickapoo River and the wide Mississippi have carved out their own valleys. Tucked amid the bluffs are thousands of farms, settled by the Amish and hippie back-to-the-landers. You can spend days meandering around towns such as Viroqua and Prairie du Chien, hiking and fishing for trout on the streams, and stopping to taste local wines and cheeses.
