About the property

5 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 16

Nestled on 44 acres of rolling hills, open prairies and hardwood forests, Prevailing Winds Lodge is the perfect place to enjoy privacy and peace. Whether you come to relax and unwind in the cozy guest rooms or explore the miles of on-site trails, your stay will leave you wanting more. From the moment you ascend the tree lined driveway, you will be transported to back-country Colorado by the whispering pines and full log lodge. Just 30 minutes outside of Madison, the lodge is located in Blue Mounds, Wisconsin and has views of the beautiful Blue Mound State Park and Brigham County Park.

WEDDINGS: Serenity, nature, privacy and peace are just a few things you'll experience on your wedding day at the lodge. Let the beautiful surroundings sweep you and your partner away as you begin your life together as one. The lodge offers the most intimate of settings for small weddings and breathtaking vistas from high atop our prairie for large weddings (up to 250 guests). The lodge does not have any restrictions on the vendors of your choice, but does offer packages for certain amenities and referrals for local merchants and suppliers. Please contact us for more details about the many options the lodge provides for your special day.

Built in 1996, the lodge offers an unparalleled experience in guest comfort, relaxation areas and outdoor activities. Attention to detail was the mantra of the craftsman who forged the lodge to include reclaimed wood countertops, a local barn wood mantle, coins integrated in the hardwood floors which mirror the American Club Resort in Kohler, a handcrafted moose and elk antler chandelier, a Michael Feeney carved dragon and full chinking between every log.

Inside the lodge you will be enamored by the soaring great room which features a 30-foot field stone fireplace, handmade Craftsman-style cabinetry, a 1904 Indian Girl canoe hanging overhead, a 9 foot reclaimed Russian Oak dining table and attractive antiques. Outside the lodge you will be rejuvenated by the fresh air and peaceful privacy of over 40 acres.
