Who We Are...

Owners, Dennis & Pat Riley bought this home back in 2004 to live in & move Pat’s quilt shop into half of the home. In 2015, Pat & her husband moved out, closed the quilt shop & reopened the home as a crafters’ retreat. Pat has visited & stayed at many retreats over the years of owning the quilt shop & thought it would be a great way to open her home.


Prairie Hill Retreat is a wonderful Victorian farmhouse located a few miles outside the city of Janesville, WI. It sits on a beautiful 7 acre country setting. The home is filled with wonderful antiques & quilts on every bed.



We offer a country atmosphere throughout the entire 1863 vintage farmhouse. In this 4600 sq foot country home, we've created craft/work areas & also spaces to just sit & stitch, read or watch a movie. We have you in mind when it comes to crafting or relaxing. Leave your home & work stresses behind. Feel pampered & get your creative mind rejuvenated. We hope you find a way to spend some time here at Prairie Hill Retreat.
