With God’s blessing we have done a lot, with His grace we will see the to do list done out here where it is, “Out of the way and out of the ordinary!”
We are Neal and Heather Wolhart, your hosts at the Homestead! We have done a lot since we purchased this
unique place in 2018, and it is all thanks to you, our guests! Here is an update on our progress and hopes for
things to come. Changes are happening, so though we want to keep the Frontier Village and the history of
Homesteading at the center of our vision, we are moving the property forward in many other ways. To reach the intent
of our mission statement and to make this place a true group destination, we have started on many projects that will help make your stay with us a true lifetime memory.
