So blessed to be able to share this unique home with guests! I lovingly named it Whispering Oaks Retreat back in 2006, so still have an original website. This is a beautiful large log cabin retreat home that is surrounded by bluffs and wilderness. Close to small charming nearby towns for day trips and activities like: bike riding trails, kayaking Root River, water tubing, horseback riding, hiking, golfing, wineries, Amish and antiquing. Rochester is 25 min away for airport, famous Mayo Clinic, restaurants, shopping and movies.

Interaction with guests
Owner may be able to meet guests upon request, otherwise self-access available with security codes. Your cell service may or may nor work in this heavily wooded, hilly area (check with your cell provider) but there is a hard wired local phone and calling cards provided. No daily cleaning provided and asked to wash & dry all towels used from premises before departure to be available for our next guests unless you choose to bring your own. Have operated since 2007 to many recurring guests and groups! I am available via text/ cellphone and email.

About the neighbourhood
This is a remote, scenic and lovely area great relaxing get-away and enjoy nature and outdoor activities. It is a bluffy area with many farm fields, rivers/creeks, and bike trails nearby. The Amish inhabit nearby towns and there are local festivals to check out. See Fillmore County events.
Getting around
Must have a vehicle as it is too far from towns for Uber or taxi rides, etc. Rental available in Rochester for cars and bicycles or tube/kayak rentals in Fountain, Preston, and Lanesboro.
