"We had a wonderful time in the Red House. We will see you again. Thank you!"
-Gary & Judy, Wausau, WI
The Red House is a quaint cabin nestled beneath eighty-year old pine trees. This cabin is one of the originals bought and remodeled when Toinie and Art Palmquist, Jim Palmquist’s parents, first began taking in guests.

The Red House started out as a very simple cabin near Minocqua, Wisconsin, about a 45 minute drive away from The Farm. When the state highway department decided to widen the highway that the cabin was near, they sold the cabin to the highest bidder. The winning bid was made by Art Palmquist, Jim's father, in 1967. After being sold, the cabin was cut into two pieces, moved to the farm and then reassembled. Modern conveniences such as plumbing and electricity were then installed, since the cabin did not have such features before it was moved.
