The SpaceThis is a beautiful home is situated on 40 private acres — perfect for relaxing with friends and family, while also a great home-base for those who want to explore the area.
The Driftless region of Wisconsin boasts some of the best road-riding in the U.S. (with many low-traffic, paved roads and beautiful Driftless scenery) along with easy access to American Players Theater and the town of Spring Green, The Driftless Cafe and the town of Viroqua, Farmer's Markets, Music and Arts Festivals, Wildcat Mountain, The Kickapoo Reserve, bountiful trout fishing, hiking, golf, canoeing and tubing and much more.
Please be aware that our property has a 2-acre spring-fed pond with raft, which is lovely for swimming, but guests must take full responsible for their own water safety.
Springtime brings fly-fishing, morel mushroom hunting, wild asparagus, the beginning of bike season, and bird migration. Because our property is mixed with open space, woods, and water, we see almost every bird imaginable —bluebirds, scarlet tanagers, Baltimore orioles, grosbeaks, indigo buntings, goldfinches, nuthatches, hummingbirds, hawks, kestrels, and much more. There is even a large bald eagle's nest five miles up the road.
Summertime brings the Driftless Music Festival, Farmer's Market, trips to the Drive-In and American Player's Theater, along with lazy days on the pond, canoeing down the Kickapoo River, unbeatable bike rides, cooking out, and cocktails on the porch.
Fall brings the Driftless Art Festival and Harvest Parade, The Dam Challenge triathlon, spectacular foliage, to be admired on long hikes through Wildcat Mountain State Park and the Kickapoo Valley Reserve, and the best biking of the season with warm, but not hot days.
Winter is the perfect time to cozy up by the wood stove, read, knit (visit the fabulous Ewetopia fiber shop in Viroqua) play games, visit with friends and cook large meals with a little bit of sledding and/or snowshoeing interspersed.
All in all, this is a wonderful space in which to enjoy good company, and a perfect home base from which to explore this dynamic region. Interaction with GuestsWe will leave you alone to enjoy the space, but are always happy to answer any questions you may have.
Occasionally, you may see us coming or going from the small office that is above our garage. The NeighborhoodPerfectly located between Spring Green and Viroqua, and surrounded by all the magic of the Driftless area!
