  • Just my daughter and I - it was terrific!

    5/5

    Such a cute town, and a great place to stay! We had no idea that we booked the same weekend as FunFest AND the kickoff of the tractor pull season! The church home had so much charm and character, and had everything you need! Including huge bath towels and a nice hot shower!! We played games and enjoyed each other’s company. Book this adorable place to stay - you won’t regret it!

  • Great place for people to gather

    5/5

    Four night stay for a wedding. Was perfect for our needs as we could have people over to visit without feeling cramped. Kids loved sleeping in the loft.

  • Family Stay at the "Castle"

    4/5

    For a quick weekend getaway, my 5 year old niece chose this property because it looked like a "Castle" in the pictures haha. It was a unique stay for sure, and a lot of the character of the original church was intact while still offering a homey feel. We stayed in the master room with the stained glass windows - definitely bring an eye mask, as the light comes in bright! The property had minimal amenities vs other accommodations we've stayed at (both in bathrooms and kitchen), ie bring your own hair dryer and all toiletries, bring storage bags, foil etc for the kitchen, also knives weren't great so if you're doing any cooking or slicing, I would bring those, as well. There were a lot of dead flies on the ground, especially in the entry, which was unusual for the middle of Winter. However, we can appreciate it's obviously an old building, and of course sometimes the character can come with some downfalls like that. When trying to see if the sofa reclined, multiple "things" were found in the cracks of the sofa, as well. We didn't use the upstairs at all, but the other two rooms were perfectly comfortable, and the main bathroom was good size. Location was great! You are right in town off the main road, so there is road noise at night. However, every bar/restaurant is in very quick walking distance, which was great for us! Overall, we'd stay here again.

  • Great Stay in a Great Spot

    5/5

    This unique accomodation has creatively and tastefully converted a church into a repurpose lodging while preserving it's history rendering the venue an asset to the community. Perfect for large family or small group. Beds are quite comfortable and open floor plan allows for roomy shared experience for games, movies, and conversations.

  • Unique and perfect

    5/5

    Prospect Place is the perfect spot to host a get together. It has everything you need. We were also super close to Menomonie to take advantage of what that cute town as to offer. Make sure to ring the bell when you are there :)
