Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Nestled on 1.3 acres, on Wisconsin’s oldest street, a home away from home awaits you. Use the house as a base to explore the beauty of the Driftless area, the vibrant energy of Mineral Point, or simply relax at home, reading, writing, cooking, napping and decompressing.

The house has been updated with modern conveniences but retains its old-world charm and elegance. A well equipped kitchen, super-comfy beds, and lots of natural light, make this perfect for a romantic getaway or family vacation.

The space
The 1700 sq ft house is a stones throw from a park with tennis courts and an amazing outdoor pool. It is a short walk (4-5minutes) to the Shakerag Alley Arts Center and the main High Street. Short hikes can be had within Mineral Point by climbing Merry Christmas hill. Close by places to visit include: House on the Rock, Governor Dodge State Park, Spring Green, American Players Theatre and more.

Guest access
You can access all areas of the house and gardens, feel free to wander the wooded trails in the back and sit fireside at night under a canopy of stars!

Other things to note
Every booking now has a 24 hour ‘buffer’ at the beginning and end of every stay. This is per the latest CDC guidance.

Work retreat: We’ve hosted several ‘work retreats’ during the week for people who want to escape the city and their office - message me for discounted rates when you book 4 consecutive nights, Monday to Thursday

All Children: We welcome children staying at the house, a few simple toys and picture books are provided for their enjoyment, located on the lower shelves in the main lounge.

Small children: Also, if needed a high chair for a baby/toddler can be provided (Svan brand, wooden chair with tray and safety straps), please let me know 1 day ahead of arrival if you’d like to use it.

Floor plan: The upstairs bedroom has two twins and one full bed in it (As described on the photos). Access to the upstairs bedroom is through one of the main floor bedrooms. This floor plan works best for friends and family groups.

Exterior Steps: Mineral Point is a hilly place and like much of the lodging in Mineral Point there are exterior steps up to the house.

This house is not a new build: the house dates back to the 1920’s and descendants of the original owners live close by. The house is welcoming, comfortable, and has lots of original features and charm. But it’s not perfect, if you are looking for an all modern experience this is not the Cottage for you.

Location

Mineral Point, Wisconsin, United States

Folks round town say the letters MP don’t just stand for Mineral Point, but are also code for Magical Place! And they are right, Mineral Point is where Wisconsin first began, steeped in a rich history it is now home to 60+ artists many of whom have galleries right on and around the main High Street. Modeled after the small villages of Cornwall, England you’ll feel at once at home, yet also transported back in time. You’ll be enchanted by the vibrant, creative community you’ll find and the incredible buzzing energy you’ll feel.

Many people have come for a weekend or short visit only to fall under the magical spell, and return (sometimes years later, sometimes just in a matter of weeks!) to make Mineral Point their permanent home.

Come and find your magical place in our great Mineral Point story!

Hello, I’m Etienne, I’m a writer and a Brit from London, who now chooses to live in the beautiful Driftless region. In addition to managing my Airbnb bookings, I run a consulting business working at the nexus of marketing and sustainability, and in my ‘spare’ time I run a farm raising grass fed, heritage breed sheep. You can read my poetry inspired by the people and places of the region on insta-gram (IG: DriftlessPoet) I also write a column about my life in the Driftless in the local monthly publication ‘Voice of the River Valley’ (available online and in print). I am smitten with Mineral Point and love that my guests get to experience their own magical adventures in this gorgeous part of the world. Message me if you’d like tips and tricks for exploring the area further. Likewise I offer special rates for longer rentals, especially for those looking for a writer or artist in residence experience; please message me for details on that too. I look forward to hearing from you! Etienne
