Thoroughly loved staying here!

  • 5 of 5

One of our best VRBO stays ever! Greg & Donna are wonderful hosts! Cabin was fresh, clean, comfy, had absolutely everything you'd need. The surrounding area is beautiful, and a perfect jumping-off point for our excursions. The country vineyard setting can't be beat, with the sounds of crickets, frogs, birds, etc. SO relaxing, and SO much better than a motel! The stargazing was stunning!

Idyllic getaway in rolling hills near La Crosse, WI

  • 5 of 5

Property just as pictured. Very quiet. Lovely setting. Greg's wine was fabulous!

Very gracious hosts. Note: Would have liked an awning/umbrella for shade to sit outside as it was exceptionally hot.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at this beautiful modern cottage was amazing! The property has awesome views. The owners have thought of everything, even a bottle of wine and delicious homemade bread on arrival.

Hope to come back again soon.

Thanks Greg and Donna!

Good views and Lots of Birds

  • 5 of 5

Greg and Donna were gracious hosts. There was a small bottle of wine made from their grapes waiting for us. The house is new and clean. The kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed sitting outside for breakfast and again with a glass of wine in the evening. The views were lovely and the bluebirds (among others) a delight to watch.

Cute, Cozy home in a beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5

We picked up the keys and got a fresh baked loaf of bread (still warm). The home was very modern and romantic. Hosts were very helpful with near by eateries and wineries. Can not wait to stay again!!

Driftless area of Wisconsin. Many scenic auto/bicycle rides through the countryside. Many Amish farms/shops in Vernon County (where cottage is located), but keep in mind they are closed on Sundays. Many fine, local wineries such as Branches near Westby, WI and Riverview Winery (just across the River near La Crescent, MN). Bicycle trails, hiking trails, quiet country walks. Also many "city sights/dining" in La Crosse (just 10 miles north).
