About Christi Smelzer

As owners of the Windwalker Retreat, we are the Knapp Family and we have been serving the Prairie du Chien, WI area in business since 1944.

Christi Smelzer purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Christi Smelzer chose Wisconsin

We bought this property to provide a place for people to enjoy some time away. It's a place for people to come with their families and make new memories. Our cabin is a home away from home and it makes it easy for people to come visit. We have always enjoyed the Prairie du Chien area and we want to share it with others.

What makes this cabin unique

Windwalker Retreat is luxury in the wilderness and that is what we fell in love with. You are surrounded by trees and nature, with the comforts of home.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is great place. We arrived in crispy cold conditions and first thing jumped in the great hot tub. We had a lot of snow and brought the sleds, there are trails on the property where you can use them. The house is very nice and clean and the location is great.

We loved it!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin and all the amenities! It had everything we needed.

The only thing we were not aware of is the Hot Tub! That was a pleasant surprise, we had to run to Wal-mart to pick up some suits!

Perhaps it was listed and we did not see it.

The kitchen set up was perfect! The beds were comfortable.

Christie was very pleasant to work with, she answered all my questions in a very prompt matter.

We loved our time there and we are hoping to return!

We made it back to the cabin again this winter, this place is a great romantic get a way. We celebrated our anniversary, and a person can not find a more private and relaxing place like this. Beautiful state parks to visit near by. We hope to make it next year again. Thank you!!!!!

The cabin was amazing. it had everything that you could need. the owners were very polite and were a pleasure to deal with. We received a large amount of snow the first night and the next day everything was plowed and even the porch was shoveled and sweep off for us. we will definitely be coming back again and are already looking forward to it. Beautiful, secluded but not too far from town. Sitting in the hot tub at night and it was absolutely perfect and silent. no highway or airplane sounds just the sound of nature.
