'Love you, Mom and Dad' 

Sheri's parents live next door beyond a hedge of pines and are happy to help should we need to call on them for any of our guest's needs. We're also blessed to have very helpful neighbors on our private drive, one of which has been Pete's closest friend for the last few decades. 

Prairie Hill really is a safe haven!

Link to Face Book Page

  Prairie Hill Pottery originated on the Prairie Hill Haven property in the summer of 2012. Pete gifted Sheri with a week at Adamah Art Studios in Dodgeville, WI. Then a Brent potter's wheel, and an electric kiln were added to the mix, resulting in the most fun Sheri has ever had. 

After moving to Colorado in 2015 we began selling at local art fairs and have been honing our skills. Sheri loves to form vessels on the wheel, while Pete mixes the glazes and has bricks awaiting in WI near Prairie Hill Haven to build a wood fired kiln.

 *Sheri shares their progress on her personal Face Book page. 

Our sales platform for 2019 include several art fair venues in CO.

Prairie Hill's 1000 square foot great room features a gourmet kitchen with curved hickory breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, dining area with a built in hutch and booth, window seats, large leather sectional, fireplace, and entertainment center. 

Off of the great room is a 12 x 32 foot deck with a fire table and seating for eight. The cushions and four extra chairs are kept just inside the slider when not in use to avoid collecting water.  The west facing deck overlooks the lined, aerated and stocked half-acre pond complete with deck, beach, life jackets, pool noodles, sand toys, campfire pit, fire wood and wagon to haul,  a small plastic baby pool, fish food, and a pergola. There is a large lawn around the house as well as six foot wide mowed paths along the 25 acre property for you to enjoy.  

The lower level of Prairie Hill also has a bonus family room with a wood stove, TV, comfortable seating and a large slider on the west side. You can lounge in a set of Cabella's reclining pattio chairs as you enjoy the western view of the pond and forests.



Prairie Hill sleeps eight people comfortably. Upstairs on the east side of the house are two king bedrooms. The master has an adjoining office, closet, and full bathroom. The second king bedroom boasts a built in bed with custom shelves. The guest bathroom and shower are just down the hall.

Downstairs along the west and north side are two rooms with two twin beds in each with a full bath just steps away.  We provide high quality bedding (sheets, pillowcases,  blankets, and summer quilts in summer/ duvets with covers in winter).   The wood stove in the lower family room warms the whole house nicely during the winter and early spring months.

In total, there are two and a half baths (two tubs and one shower) with hand towels and two towels and washcloths per guest, plenty of toilet paper and hand soap. There is a laundry room with high efficiency machines along with detergent, ironing board and iron, and extra cleaning supplies.

 Upstairs in the great room near the booth you will find a corded phone and have access to wireless internet, broadband, TV, stereo, CD and DVD players, satellite and cable, a video library and board games.

Prairie Hill's kitchen offers side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, oven, two dishwashers, dish detergent, microwave, toaster, slow cooker, blender, tea kettle, kitchen cloth and paper towels, coffee bean grinder and coffee makers, cook/bake ware and plenty of dishes and serving ware (scroll down to see our kitchen amenities gallery), six bar stools, four dinning chairs and table, place mats, able cloths, four folding chairs with cushions, and a booth that seats four (you will find extra cushions in the buffet/ entertainment center cupboards). 

We also provide a fitness room with Schwinn weight system, stationary bike, and Life Fitness Flex Deck Treadmill. You will have access to a two car garage as well as plenty of outside parking for extra cars, RV/boat/trailer.

Hunting, fire arms, fire works, and undue noise are prohibited. We are committed to creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquility for our guests as well as the surrounding properties.
