Florence Mayfred Briggs - Prescott area summer home

I am looking for the location of the summer home maintained by Florence Mayfred Briggs (FMB) (b. 1887) and perhaps her parents, Warren S. Briggs and Florence Lucy Chase Briggs, somewhere on the Saint Croix River near Prescott. There were at least three buildings on the property, one known as the Bachelor Quarters, or something similar.

FMB was a mentor to my husband's grandfather and he and his family visited her there up until about 1946. Sometime between then and her death in 1965 the property passed to someone else. FMB was a teacher and a social worker. Her permanent home was in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
