Biographical Info

Woodland Ridge Retreat is a creative getaway for quilters, knitters, fiber artists, scrapbooking and artists. Located in the rural village of Downsville, Wisconsin, this idyllic property overlooks the scenic Red Cedar River Valley in the west-central part of the state. Our retreat offers deluxe accommodations and brightly lit gathering rooms. The facility is on one level with ADA accessible guest accommodations.

The Building
Woodland Ridge Retreat takes its name from this beautiful building know as Woodland Terrace. Woodland Terrace was built in 1998 as a stand alone addition to the Creamery Restaurant and Inn. The design aesthetic was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright and reflects the genius of the architect Paul Thomas.

A Place to Create
The building features two Garden Rooms or gathering rooms. Each garden room can accommodate up to 12 guests, for a total of 24, at individual work spaces. Whether you enjoy sewing, scrapbooking or any other creative endeavor we have a comfortable spot for you. Solid surface work tables are adjustable in height so each guest will have a work space that is suited to their stature.

Rest and Relax
The eight guest rooms are spacious and offer a boutique hotel inspired feeling. Each room sleeps three guests. Each guest room features three full sized plush beds complete with down alternative pillows and comforters.

Room with a View
All of our guest rooms look out on the woodland behind the retreat. In the cooler months you can see to the lake just below. Our neighbors John and Kathy, owners of Simply Dunn the home of Dunn County Pottery, keep hiking trails maintained in these woods. They have generously offered their private trails to our guests for use during their stay. Just a few blocks away you will find the Red Cedar State Bicycle Trail.

Every detail was thought of during the design of the building. Guest rooms have radiant in floor heating and central air conditioning. Walls are well insulated offering guests a very quiet night.

Woodland Ridge Retreat is open 44 weeks a year. Call us to schedule your next getaway.
