Stopped after a friend's suggestion and was wonderfully surprised. The pottery and glass works were beautiful. After we finished shopping we had lunch at the connected building and the food was outstanding.

This place is very unique and has lots to offer from the cutest little shop to outdoor music to painting pottery or grabbing a bite at the cafe - a very nice place to take friends when up in the woods of Wisconsin.
