Cornell Reviews

Cornell, WI is a small town of about 1,500 people from all backgrounds. Very close knit community. When we first moved here, everyone was so helpful and kind.
Rental prices are cheap compared to the surrounding area.
The cities of Chippewa Falls & Eau Claire are within 30-45 minutes away for shopping, events, and nightlife.
Cadott, WI (home of Rockfest & Countryfest)is less than 10 miles away.
