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.
