Welcome to the Prairie House 

Bald eagles, great blue heron and deer are your neighbors when you visit the Prairie House.

The 4+ Bedroom 3.5 Bath prairie style home sits atop a glacial drumlin overlooking 120 acres on scenic Lake Sinissippi. Guests have coined it a "birder's paradise" as wildlife viewing can be enjoyed inside with its ceiling to floor windows, observation deck and screened cedar porch, as well as outside along hiking trails that traverse the organic gardens,14 acre woods, naturalized shoreline, and18 acre prairie with sixty-five native flower species and seven prairie grasses that provide a dynamic collage of changing colors in three seasons. Two kayaks, two canoes and a paddleboat are available to guests for exploring the marshy bays where bald eagles nest and you may encounter flocks of white pelicans, sandhill crane and great blue heron hunting
