Peaceful, scenic get-a-way
All the amenities of home in a spectacular setting! The rental is equipped with everything you need if you want peace and relaxation; on the other hand, if you want entertainment, great restaurants and tourist attractions, La Crosse is only a short distance away. Rental is clean and cozy...slept like a baby! The hosts were also very gracious and helpful. The wine and fresh bread were very much enjoyed and appreciated. Truly the best of both worlds!
Thanks. It is perfect appreciative guests like you two who keep us motivated to offer the amenities you appreciated. This truly is "God's country" with so much scenic beauty.
We come every year! Such a lovely, relaxing getaway in a beautiful setting. Already booked for next year again, but longer!
We are so happy to have you back each year since we opened in 2016. We look forward to your June 2019 stay! Thanks.
Donna and Greg
Great get away
Greg and Donna were great hosts. Donna was waiting for us when we arrived. She invited us into their home where we were given a warm loaf of bread right out of the oven. We were greeted with a bottle of wine in the cottage. Greg and Donna stopped up a short while later to show us how everything worked. Greg even made the trek up the hill to drop off a cork screw when they realized we did not have one.
The cottage is in a great spot for trips into La Crosse for dining and sightseeing. Also close to great hiking trails.
They had the outdoor fire place all setup, all you had to do was light it. The stars were amazing and we spent hours looking at the sky.
We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat.
This cottage is outstanding! Absolutely spotless, cozy and charming and beautiful location. The owners have thought of everything and welcome you so warmly. We will definitely return!
Easy to find and gorgeous views!
The couple that owns the property is so welcoming and made us feel right at home. They let us stroll though the vineyard, try the grapes, and made sure to tell us about the best local places. We had a great stay and hope to be back in the future!
Awesome Property and Owners!
Very nice, clean, modern accommodations set in the beautiful Driftless Area. Great views right out the front windows. If wine is your thing, which we enjoy, there are many nice wineries throughout this area. We had a very relaxing stay, and especially enjoyed the evenings sipping wine and watching and listening to the fire flies and crickets! Donna and Greg are the nicest people you will ever meet. When we arrived we talked a bit, and then we went up the hill to the cottage. Donna and Greg came up shortly after to explain the tv operation, fans, etc., and make sure we were comfortable. They also gave us a warm loaf of delicious home made bread and a bottle of wine. What a great way to start a weekend get-a -way! This was one of the best mini vacations we have had and look forward to returning to enjoy this beautiful area 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).
Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed by owner.
