Crafting Retreat & Supplies
Prairie Wind is geared toward the needs of groups of family/friends, including sleeping for 10 guests. It is located in a private, country-side home, six miles northeast of Winnebago, Minnesota. We are no longer licensed as a B & B, but continue to book "self-service" groups in the retreat center, which has a complete kitchen.
In this setting, the entire retreat center is designated for a group of friends and their event, be it scrapbooking, quilting, paper crafts or just hanging out together. Hosts remain on-site and are available to assist, as needed. However, hosts are not living within the retreat space and would "knock" to enter. We check on the group daily to confirm room temps are comfy and answer any retreat space questions. Our guests all give us a "We love our hosts!" evaluation.
