What a neat place. Lots of variety. There is probably something for everyone. Prices are mostly reasonable. I was able to find a couple of loon items...a card and a sticker. Wish they had more, but that's the way it goes. The card is a quill card so it's really neat. Glad we stopped.

What an enjoyable unique place. I took my husband here on a date. $5.00-$10.00 concert fee, kids under 14 free. Doors open at 6 but there is a gift shop that is open all day if you get there earlier Outdoor setting( dress for the weather ) with live music. Federales were playing when we went. Never heard them before but they were good. We had great tasting pizza and a glass of wine topping it off with some delicious dessert. If weather does not permit we just move it inside which is also nice. This is a wonderful place to go as a couple, group of friends or as a family. All ages to enjoy. If you do not enjoy being around kids I would not suggest going but we have 10 grandchildren so we love it in fact we plan to go back soon with a couple of our grandkids to enjoy.

We found this place when my son attended camp in Shell Lake. There is a store, a cafe and paint your own pottery art gallery. The design of the buildings and the attached garden is flowing and comfortable. We ate there on 3 occassions and every time the sandwiches were wonderful! We had paninis, and salads and drinks. My son had some minty chocolatey coffee served in a huge mug with lots of whipped cream! Prices are very reasonable. The garden is gorgeous, with ponds and Koi swimming around, beautiful flowers and a barn-board shelter for shade. The paint-your-own pottery is so much fun~ Lots of items to choose from. It's not cheap, but then I didn't think it was horribly expensive. They have a gamut of items in all price ranges. I saw many families sharing items and having a great time working together! They have items like sponges and stickers and other items to help you design your piece, and lots of different glazes and colors. The studio is completely stocked with everything you need to make a masterpiece! They also have items to mosaic. Once you glaze your piece, you can watch them stock the kilns if you are there on the right day (call for info) and they will ship it if you are from out of town. (The kids love watching this!) They also have an outdoor area for painting pottery and they have live music scheduled but we didn't get to see any. The staff is helpful and friendly and we had a great relaxing time! We definitely plan on visiting this area again, just so we can go here again!

My wife discovered this place while we were staying at our in laws cabin on the lake. She loved the vibe of the place and enjoyed a coffee and snack while checking emails on the free wifi.
We returned the next day for lunch and the service was terrific, the food was delish and made to order.
Brought our in laws over a couple of day later and they loved it...and hadn't even been there, though they're all of 10 minutes away and have lived there now for about 8 years!
Will definitely be going back. Enjoy the meal and walk around and look at all the crafts outside.
Ice cream for the kids...big or small at a small ice cream station.

We came for the pottery, stayed for lunch and caught some live music as well! Lunch sandwich and salads where fresh and tasty. Outstanding beverage selection. Live music is always fun out in the garden and is a great place to relax with your family! Love that they support local artists!

This place is an escape from the pressures of everyday life with beauty at every turn. The art is unique and exquisite, the music is rustic and real, and the staff is friendly and truly building something for others to enjoy and hold in their memories. An absolute gem of Americana and culture - please come as you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful place for the entire family to hang out and paint pottery, shop and have lunch. Plus live music during the summer on weekend evenings. During the live music they offer beer & wine & pizza & ice cream. Great environment for your entire family!!
