When traveling through central Wisconsin, you will find there is year-round fun to be had and a variety of interesting attractions along the way.

The most popular sites to see at the complex include the Carousel, the Japanese Garden, and the Infinity Room – a 200-foot hallway stretching out from the house and hanging over the valley below.
