Located in the heart of the Driftless region, this home sits halfway up a steep hillside overlooking meadows, forest and class A trout stream. The scenery is more like Colorado but with Wisconsin's lush greenery. Wonderful birding and wild-life viewing, eagle's nest visible across the valley. Fireplace, full kitchen, 3 decks,[one is an amazing "crowsnest"]. Brick patio in limestone rock garden, fire-pit Out door pizza oven. 4 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bath. Wood burning sauna situated at the edge of a rustic swimming hole, making for a bliss experience! Towels, spring water and eucalyptus oil provided for your sauna. Jetted 4 person hot tub on lower level walk-out basement. Foosball table in that area as well. Large open living area, dining area. with sunken seating area with wood-burning fireplace [we supply wood and kindling]. Bright kitchen with range, dishwasher and fridge. There are other features of the house and property which will make for a fascinating experience. We are developing a micro-winery on the property. In fact, the barrel room is in the basement of the house where you'll be staying. We have an additional farm nearby where we grow organic and biodynamic grapes for our wine. Cold climate gapes have a lot of potential and we all are just learning how to best vinify them. We also keep a large organic garden on the property where you'll be staying., with abundant fruit and nut trees, raspberries, asparagus, etc. We are also proud of the sustainability aspect of the farm as we have installed 3 types of solar systems, use organic linens and cleaning products, non-voc paint , recycled maple floors and beams from a timber frame barn as well as beautiful stone/ tile.This is a working hobby farm with very sweet draft horses used to haul wood and spread manure. We also have Scottish Highlander cows, heritage chickens and corgis!. We are 1/4 mile from Runge Hollow reservoir with superior fishing, ice fishing and canoeing. You may borrow our canoe. Vernon Vineyard Winery is just down the road to the west. A mile to the east is an Amish community with bakery and handicrafts. There is excellent hiking both on the farm and nearby as well as snow-shoeing and XC skiing. We have equipment for you. Viroqua is nearby with world-class dining [yes, really], arts, music, the coolest used bookstore, theater, music, wine bar, Farmers market and food co-op. Don't forget national award-winning Kickapoo Coffee [free cupping last Saturday of the month!] A few things to consider; there is no cable or dish TV but we do have a medium-sized screen and lots of great DVDs. Also, cell service is spotty at best. We owners, Chris and Ann keep an apartment on the lower level for ourselves. It is totally separate with sound insulation [not sound-proofing!], separate entrance etc. we also have a residence on our other farm where we often stay. We love to share this beautiful property.
