Q: How did the name "Old Trees Farm" come to be?
A: We are proud to have several of our trees recognized by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources' Champion Tree Program, which celebrates the state’s largest trees. Take a peaceful nap, have a little picnic, or simply read a lovely book while you enjoy the sun cascading through our trees' branches.
Q: Are pets (dogs) allowed at Old Trees Farm?
A: Unfortunately, no. We need to be mindful of the farm animals.
Q: Do you allow children?
A: We do allow children, however, parents need to know our property is not child proof. We ask that you stay with your children at all times while on the hobby farm for their safety.
Q: How close is Old Trees Farm to major attractions like Road America Racetrack and Whistling Straits Golf Course?
A: Pretty darn close. The home is on WI State 57 just a few minutes from the trail head for easy access to the surrounding state park areas to enjoy biking/hiking/skiing/horseback/snowmobile trails , 5 minutes to Road America, 20 minutes to Kohler, 50 minute drive to EAA Air Venture, 1 hour to Appleton, Green Bay and Milwaukee. Please visit the Local Life section of our website to view other interesting points of interest.
Q: Is Old Trees Farm handicap-accessible?
A: No. While the driveway brings your vehicle right up to the house, there are a few entry steps, so we would not recommend Old Trees Farm for anyone who relies upon a wheelchair. Not to mention the surrounding terrain is rather uneven and rugged, and therefore not suitable for a wheelchair or other similar mobility-assistance device. We apologize for this inconvenience. If, however, someone uses a cane or walker, the house has a 1st floor bedroom (but, as mentioned, a few steps to enter the house) and bathrooms all on the same level, so it could be suitable, once inside. If you have specific questions, please inquire.
Q: Is there Wi-Fi available?
A: Yes. Rural Wisconsin has a reputation for its lack of available high-speed internet, especially in its rural areas, but Old Trees Farm DOES HAVE high-speed Wi-Fi. There is also a local digital antenna for the TV. This house was designed for a 'disconnected getaway', so if you are considering a working vacation, or intense gaming for the kids, then our home isn't practical for your needs, not to mention we feel as though you'll really be missing the point of our beautiful, relaxing location.
Q: Will I be able to cook-out?
A: Yes. A grill is provided for you.
IMPORTANT! Due to the possibility of wildlife in the area, we ask that you PLEASE clean the grill immediately after use and DO NOT leave any food-covered utensils or dishes outside! We want our guests to enjoy their stay, without unwanted visitors. Thank you.
Q: May we build a campfire?
A: Yes, you may, but only if recent weather conditions or burn restrictions allow since our property is near farmland. We ask that you keep the fire small and be mindful of sparks. All fires must be completely extinguished prior to leaving the fire pit area, even to go for a walk or to run to the store, and especially when going inside for the night.
Q: Where is the closest airport?
A: The closest airport is Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport in, well, Milwaukee. It takes approximately one hour, traveling south on I43. The second option is to fly into Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport, which is approximately 1.25 hours north of Plymouth. However, within 8 minutes from Old Trees Farm is the Sheboygan County Memorial Airport, a county-owned public-use non-towered airport.
Q: Can Old Trees Farm accommodate my RV?
A: Yes and no, depending upon the size of your camper or mobile home. Feel free to reach out to us and we'll be sure to provide more information.
Q: May I hunt on the property or surrounding area?
A: Absolutely not. While natural and peaceful, this is a residential area and hunting is not allowed. However, there are numerous local areas where hunting is allowed and/or where you may sign-up for a group hunting adventures with professional guides, depending upon the time of year and current hunting season.
Q: What if someone is sick? Is there a doctor or hospital nearby?
A: Yes. If someone is seriously ill or an emergency arises, then dial 911 for immediate assistance. Otherwise, there are doctors offices in Plymouth and there are hospitals within 15 minutes.
Q: Are there many neighbors nearby?
A: There are neighbors, yes, but since Old Trees Farm is located near neighboring farmland, you will probably not actually 'see' any neighbors.
Q: Is smoking allowed at Old Trees Farm?
A: Absolutely not. We are strictly a non-smoking rental property. That includes smoking anywhere on the grounds, or the dumping of ashes/ashtrays anywhere on the property, since that would be a considerable fire hazard.
