Stay in a Northern Dog Trot! Think of this place as a hotel suite but in a house in the country! Ideal for families, couples & solo travelers wanting more space. We are ideally located 7 miles south of Menomonie off of Hwy 25 and 1/2 mile to the quaint town of Downsville. The Red Cedar Bike Trail is within 1 mile, easy access, in fact, park your bikes outside, experience our area! Snowmobile and ATV trails close. Perfect if you are visiting a son or daughter at UW-Stout. Country setting!

The space
What is a Dog Trot! Our home is a one level ranch home situated on a dead end road in a country setting. The main house is separated by a dog trot-a breezeway enclosed with two glass garage doors- two private guest suites are private on the opposite side of the dog trot. Your booked space includes two guest suites one is a bedroom & and the other is a den with your own private bath. You have cable TV, internet, refrigerator, coffee pot, desk work space, comfortable couch-purchased in Jan of 2020. The main bedroom has a queen bed and the den has a queen sofa sleeper with a memory foam mattress. The dog trot area separates the space between guests and the owners place. For 1-2 guests the bedroom and den are an ideal space with a private entrance through the back of the home. If you are looking for space for over two guests the sofa is a queen sofa bed. Any guests over two add a 15.00 per guest charge.

Guest access
Guests will have access to the guest suite-bedroom, bathroom and the den. Doors are locked to our private owners area. You are totally separate from the owners part of the home with your own entry access. We share a driveway. We generally do not use the dog trot area when we have guests. During the summer months we will have a seating area outside available for bird or eagle watching and just a quiet setting that we are sure you will enjoy!

Other things to note
Everything is on one level we have no steps so it is very accessible. We have changed our initial space from when we first started our Airbnb experience we made one of the bedrooms a den so we do not rent the dog trot area out it was too hard to regulate the heat. We are in a country setting so if you are looking for an in town location this is not the place but 6 miles outside of Menomonie is not far at all. If you do want to rent out the extra dog trot area please inquire when you book.

Our area is unique because we are close to Menomonie with all of it's amenities such as the historic Mabel Tainter Theater, UW-Stout and downtown shopping. Downsville is 1/4 mile where you can enjoy a pizza at the popular Cubbies bar, a Friday fish fry at the Timber Inn and experience a small town coffee shop at the Company Coffee shop housed in a historic building in Downsville. We are also close to the Red Cedar State Trail system where you can access the 94 mile trail system in Downsville. Park your bikes and hop on and enjoy our bike trails closeby. Kayaking is available on the Red Cedar River, we can help with a rental close by or bring your own. We are also close to cross country skiing in the winter and the Dunn county snowmobile trails.

Hello my husband John and i have been running the 5star Red Dog Trails vacation farmhouse rental we co-own with my sister. We enjoy meeting guests from all over and thought why not offer our own place to Guest’s. The dog trot was designed so we would have a owners space separate from our guests space the area between the two spaces is our dog trot area we use as a living space. My husband is a contractor self employed and I am a Realtor at C-21 affiliated. I also teach part time as a hospitality Professor. My degree is from UW Stout in Hospitality & Tourism. Our place is ideal for guests who are here for business or leisure travelers biking or here for a quick stay. You enter through the back of the home and you have your own private space! We have two senior dogs Molly and Rosie and our happy go lucky lab Tucker! The dogs do not go in the guest spaces so it is very clean and fresh! Welcome to Menomonie! If you need anything we are available but if you want quiet we respect that too!

During your stay
We are here and available if you need us and we will help get you acquainted with the area, if you want privacy we respect that as well. We do have two small senior dogs and a lab so you may see them around the property from time to time they will be on a leash for walks. You may see them outside. Our lab Tucker loves to fetch so if you want to toss a frisbee to him he would love it! If you do not like dogs, allergic to them, or don't want to hear a dog or see a dog, this place may not be for you. We do not allow our dogs in the guests spaces at all.
