Kinstone ~ A Modern Megalithic Garden
Come to Kinstone to enjoy the beauty and peace of this stunning sanctuary that leaves you feeling as if you have visited an older world in a different time. We offer tours, retreats, workshops, and even concerts! Contact us to book a tour, a wedding or other event.
This place is unique in all the world. It has been said that Kinstone features the largest privately owned stone circle in the world. This has not been confirmed, but we must be close! There are tons and tons of granite boulders, standing stones and sculptures. Come to enjoy the beauty of the space, see our gardens, find a spot for quiet contemplation to re-connect to nature, or take a personal pilgrimage along The Way of the Stones.
Kinstone is located in rural Fountain City, Wisconsin, just off County Road M on Cole Bluff Lane. It is a contemplative, park-like place with spectacular views and intriguing stonework and natural buildings. This stunning 30-acre bluff-top property has over 100 standing stones including three stone circles, megalithic dolmen, classic 7-circuit labyrinth, thatched, cordwood chapel, dry-stack stone sculpture, natural buildings, food forest gardens, raised bed gardens and more. There are several alignments of interest at Solstices and Equinoxes. You will love to wander around this place and take in the serenity and beauty.
Kinstone has a lovely Education Center with a classroom, library and kitchen. This building is available to rent for meetings, gatherings, and specialty courses and events. This is also where we host courses, events, workshops and hands-on learning experiences for those who wish to regenerate, relearn and revive. Here you can learn about caring for the earth, caring for people, caring for self and giving something back when your yields are bountiful. Find more about our current offerings and events on our website.
Private, guided tours are possible by special arrangement for a fee and typically take about 1 hour and 15 minutes. If you are visiting and are not part of a tour, expect to spend a couple of hours wandering a wonderland that seems as if it is from another time and place. Bring your water bottle, sunblock for sunny days, insect repellent if you wish, dress for the weather (sun hat, rain coat, umbrella, etc), wear sturdy shoes and be prepared to walk rough and sometimes steep terrain. Find additional details about tours, visiting, and directions on our website.
