We have forty acres of land less than a mile from the south shore of Lake Superior and about 2 miles from Cornucopia, Wisconsin and its wonderful beaches. Corny is a small town with general store, coffee shop, two restaurants, Lost Creek Adventures Kayak rentals, and a commercial fishing operation at the harbor (Fresh Fish!). We are also a couple miles from the start of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore and the trail head for the Meyers Beach sea caves.
We are an older couple, trying to move into retirement and develop a bit of a homestead at the same time. We have a creek flowing through the property, a pond stocked with fish, a hoop-house half built, chickens, a horse, dog, etc.

Currently our living arrangement offering is just a small hardshell camper that sleeps two (if the two are used to sleeping close). It has a tiny kitchen and really tiny bathroom/shower, and a big front yard (it's not near the house). We may be buying a Yurt and we are interested in building another small cabin on the property for guest helpers. So helpers would be assisting with some light carpentry (cabin), gardening and working with animals (horse experience??) -- a couple hours a day or some variation of that.

We live off-grid and I install off-grid solar as my trade (semi-retired), while Phyllis is retired from the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point.

Pictures include a couple Corny beach shots, the house in the winter, Spirit the two year old gelding, Phyllis and dog Katie.
