The Homestead is the newest endeavor here at Second Wind. It has two suites. As I child it was here at The Homestead where I (Kelly) weekly visited my grandparents. It was homesteaded at the turn of the century by my (Kelly) great-grandparents. The upper suite is called Little Scandinavia. The lower suite is Whimsy. You will love your stay at The Homestead! Quiet, cozy and inviting are just a few ways to describe Little Scandinavia and Whimsy.

The Homestead suites are available for a 5 night minimum stay.  Exceptions are made when we have last minute openings (within the immediate week and when there are openings less that 5 days). You will need to call us directly at 715-682-1000 rather than use our on-line system.  Please call us to make those specialized reservations.  We do offer a monthly rate during our slow season (November – May).  Breakfast is not included at The Homestead. This is our guest house on the same 40 acres of the main inn but is in a separate building.


Whimsy (the lower unit) has sleeping accommodations for up to 4 people. It has a spacious kitchen, living area, bedroom with queen bed, bedroom/reading nook, sun porch with futon, private bath, and an outdoor deck.  Breakfast is NOT included here in this guest house (Whimsy). With it’s fully equipped kitchen Whimsy is truly a home away from home.


Little Scandinavia

Little Scandinavia (the upper unit) has sleeping accommodations for two people with a queen bed in the bedroom.  It does also have  a sofa sleeper in the living room making it possible to squeeze a third person in this suite.  You’ll love this cozy place in the world.  It also has a fully equipped kitchen.  Breakfast is not included in this suite in our guest house.

Please call us at 715-682-1000 should you have questions concerning lodging at The Homestead.
