We have been photographers for over 30 years. We love travel, nature and family. After all of our years in the wedding industry, we found a longing for the art of slow living. Taking time to enjoy and share what we have with others who are also looking for an authentic experience. Our dream has always been to have a property that brings people together to relax, enjoy and celebrate together.
Our summers taking the kids up to Tomahawk Wi have always been an inspiration to us. We fell in love with the quirky vintage mom and pop resorts where everyone gathered after a long day wondering, napping or fishing, to hang out around the camp fire. We’ve also traveled around the globe seeking out authentic one-of-a-kind destinations and dreaming of creating our own retreat.
When we found Abloom we knew it was the perfect spot. A beautiful 70 year old tree farm 30 minutes north of Milwaukee. Just far enough to connect with nature and see the stars at night, but close enough to everything we love about Wisconsin. This property feels like you are up north. It is surrounded by 60 foot pines and around the corner from pristine nature preserves and bike trails. We are just a few miles down the road from Lake Michigan, the beach, and the harbor town of Port Washington where you can rent a fishing boat or surf the waves on a windy day. You can also golf at the many nearby world class clubs. We are next to the beautiful town of Cedarburg that is a destination in itself. It is a lovely collection of old stone shops and restaurants on the river that will enchant with live music and popular festivals all year long.
Winter here is a magical wonderland. Enjoy our 3 wood burning fireplaces and bring your snowmobile, sleds, skies and warm mittens. We are very close to Sunburst Ski and tube hill. There are winter celebrations all around the area and on select friday nights until Christmas, where they line the streets with lanterns and welcome all to Santa’s workshop. The January winter festival with ice skating on the river, and bed sled races is not to be missed.
As we grow our garden with our daughter Lilly we will have fresh vegetables and flowers for our guests to enjoy. She is the green thumb in the family and her gift inspired our name.
Come, wonder our forests, explore the barns, the log cabin, and play in the wildflower field. You are always welcome here.
We look forward to your visit!
