Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Center City - Timberhaze Retreat

One level home, 3 BR, 2 bath, sleeps up to 8 people. Quilting/Scrapbooking venue

Are you looking for a quiet, secluded, and comfortable home located a ¼ mile from the Hazelden Betty Ford campus in Center City where you can stay for a visit? Or maybe you’re considering exploring and touring the historic Chisago Lakes, Taylors Falls, and St Croix River valley attractions? Perhaps instead you want a comfortable place for a group to gather for a quilting, scrapbooking, crafting retreat or a special event? Either way, this beautifully crafted home that sleeps up to 8 people may fit the bill for you.

Situated on 40 wooded acres and built on one level in 2009, our home features a large eat-in kitchen with a dining room table that seats up to 10 people, and a comfortable living room for watching TV or a movie. We offer free wi-fi.

There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a large, brightly lit quilting/scrapbooking/crafting/recreation/gathering room. One shower is wheelchair accessible.

One bedroom has five extra long twin beds, one has two twin beds, and one bedroom has a single extra long twin bed. Six of the twin beds can be converted into three king beds upon request. There is also a pack-and-play available for infants.

The kitchen is fully equipped with new stainless appliances, or cook on the outdoor gas grill. A laundry room is available with a washer and dryer; sheets and towels are provided.

You will love the ability to park your car or motorcycles in the attached garage. Take a stroll along the short hiking trails on the property, or use the trails for snowshoeing in the winter. Watch the deer and wildlife out your window as you relax inside a house enveloped with a beautiful, unique hardwood interior while enjoying the comfort of in-floor geothermal heat and air conditioning.

Gateway to a variety of recreational options in Chisago Lakes, Taylors Falls, and the St Croix River valley, the house is a 15 minute drive from Wild River State park or the MN and WI interstate parks where you can go rock climbing or hike along easily accessible trails. See the glacial potholes or take-in beautiful scenic vistas overlooking the Dalles on the St. Croix River. Kayaking and canoeing on the St. Croix River are also popular.

Other recreational opportunities in the area include: River boat tours down the St. Croix River, the Wild Mountain and Trollhaugen ski areas, Wild River snowmobile trails, Wild Mountain water and alpine slides and go-karts, the Franconia sculpture park, and numerous antique and pottery shops. You might also want to visit four outstanding local wineries, which are within a 30-minute drive (or less) from the house.

Why John & Lisa Rydning chose Chisago City

Great country location. Close to t

Trollhaugen and Wild Mountain skiing, great local wineries Winehaven, Dancing Dragonfly, and St Croix Chateau. St Croix River recreation and parks. 1 hour drive to twin cities.

What makes this house unique

One level easy access. Brightly lit crafting room. Drive into heated garage to unload all your belongings right into the quilting/scrapbooking room. The house has in floor heat and is very comfortable. The kitchen is huge and has a large table for the whole group to sit around and enjoy conversation and great food. Great place to get together with girlfriends and work on wedding invitations and party favors or even bouquets for the wedding party. Wedding guest that are going to local venues can stay at the house and have a place to BBQ, have a ping pong tournament or build a fire in the fire pit. Its more relaxing to be in a home and have space to enjoy.

Perfect for a Get-Together with Friends

  • 5 of 5

Timberhaze Retreat is truly a home away from home. From the minute I walked in, I fell in love with its cozy and inviting atmosphere. The property was very clean and well-lit (which is important when you're living in the midwest), and there was a huge kitchen, which is great because I was staying there with a group of 6 girls, including myself, and we needed plenty of space to cook the dinners we had all brought to share. There was more than enough room and it made for the perfect place to have a get-together with friends. We got lost in the adult coloring books; the designs were absolutely mesmerizing and we all found it very relaxing (especially with a glass of wine!). We went tubing at Wild Mountain, which definitely brought back memories of my childhood (except for the conveyor belt that pulls you up so you don't have to lug your tube uphill- that was a very welcome added touch!) and then came back to the retreat house to curl up on the couch and watch movies. The beds were extremely comfy and I felt like I could have stayed in bed all day if I didn't have to go anywhere. It was also nice to have the free wi-fi so that if I needed to catch up on emails I had that option as well. I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family and I look forward to returning in the future!

Great mini vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This trip was such a delight! I was extremely impressed by the quality and cleanliness of the retreat house as well as all of the space and big windows! I felt like I was up in the mountains. Great place to escape for a few days. The only thing was that I got turned around trying to locate the retreat house. Otherwise, close to town and necessities.

A gorgeous getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

It's always scary to rent a place out of town (especially 6 hours away) without seeing it in person in advance. When we arrived I was in complete awe. The house is absolutely gorgeous. Everything we needed or wanted was all here. I can't say a bad thing about the stay and would highly encourage anyway looking for the perfect place, look no further.

FANTASTIC!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with plenty of space and the set up was perfect. Great location, clean, comfortable. Beds were great very comfortable. We rented this home for the family of the Groom to stay at to be close to the wedding venue in Taylors Falls, MN. It was perfect and so much better than a hotel. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a GREAT Vacation destination. We loved it so much we are making plans to return next summer for a Vacation. A big THANK YOU to John and Lisa everything went perfectly.
