A secluded, private, ranch retreat ideal for family vacations, celebrations, holidays, reunions, retreats, weddings and group events. Need to Relax? You've picked the right place. Nestled in the deeply carved valleys of the driftless region, Big Valley Ranch offers a quiet and extraordinary lodging experience where you can horseback ride, hike, and bike right outside your door. Wildlife abounds with birds, squirrels, deer, turkey, and you might even see the elusive red fox, or a Big Buck just yards from the ranch. The grounds are both breathtaking and beautiful, with plenty of room for outdoor games and gatherings. With 40 miles of trails, natural streams, a covered picnic pavilion, 60 outdoor horse paddocks, a sand volleyball court and an impressive lighted outdoor arena, the possibilities are endless. Once a buffalo ranch, the 800 acres is now home to an exclusive western retreat and vacationer’s paradise. The original rustic barn was restored into an elegant bed and breakfast using the original foundation, beams and barn boards. With 4200 square feet of country luxury, the barn house features 4 western themed bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, a majestic Great Room with a beautiful stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings, leather sofas, and hardwood floors. The fully-equipped kitchen has granite counter tops, bar seating, stainless steel appliances, and a large dining table. The Great Room leads outside to a private, full-length deck with hot tub facing a horse pasture where you can enjoy grilling out or relaxing in our 8 person hot tub. Want to entertain a large party? Check out Miss Kitty’s Saloon. Although not a facility serving spirits, it houses saddle stools and a bar to enjoy your own beverages. There you can play a game of pool, darts, foosball, cards or dance to the jukebox. Located below the barn house living quarters is the stable with 8 premium stalls, tack room and wash rack. Nearby is the milk house (shower house) which houses a large walk-in shower and bath. Not wanting plush accommodations? Check out our bunk house which holds up to 6 people. Amenities include: 4 full size bunk beds, futon, microwave, mini refrigerator, TV and outdoor grill. Big Valley Ranch is meant to be versatile.
