2008 was the year Kevin and Ann Schmid began their quest to create a private place to enjoy family and friends. They wanted to provide a safe family recreational atmosphere to entertain and escape the daily grind.
Juggling a busy schedule with 7 kids and a hectic work life, the Schmids needed a private year-round vacation and hunting destination – somewhere to satisfy their passion for the outdoors and shut out the rest of the world. No more crowds, lines, pollution or other stressful aspects of traveling, just a relaxing getaway where they could enjoy their loved ones and nature.
Located in Wautoma, Wisconsin Edenwood was carved out of Waushara counties’ beautiful diverse woodlands. The Schmid’s created Edenwood to be a “corner of paradise.” A luxury sanctuary retreat – designed to relax,
recharge, and unwind.
The Schmid’s vision to create a stress-free environment was realized in 2012 when Kevin and Ann walked out onto the deck having morning coffee. “We looked out towards the lake and viewed Elk, Turkey, Whitetail and Fallow deer. We saw geese and ducks and too many birds to name. Eagles and Hawks sailing in the morning air. Our ears were filled with unfamiliar sounds of nature singing aloud. We were so pleased with the joy Edenwood brings us that we wanted to share” said the couple.
Edenwood is now open to the public as a year-round premier vacation destination. Boasting 6 cabin styles, 32 beds, 16 private rooms and 13 bathrooms, all nestled inside a gated square mile private retreat, Edenwood’s unique layout allows for both families and businesses to blend together.

Edenwood has a wide variety of activities. Take a hike or bike the miles of nature trails. Challenge yourself with hunting, fishing, or just enjoy the beach as you zip line into the water. There are endless opportunities that will keep everyone entertained.
