Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Bagley - A Bagley Cabin In The Woods

Homestyle Log Cabin in God's Country where you'll find natural peace and quiet.

We are 5 minutes from Wyalusing State Park and 15 minutes from Prairie du Chien.

I will share the cabin's last review dated July 25th here. Thank you Sharon and family! -

"It's all true. All the compliments I'd read about Kathy & her cabin before making this choice are well deserved. Our little family reunion enjoyed the ideal environment for lasting special memories. The setting felt remote & private whereby we could delight in nature right out our door, sitting on the deck in the eve, watching the moon rise, while being entertained by twinkling fireflies as their cicada cousins harmonized in the nearby woods. A different night, by the campfire, our ears perked to the sounds of coyotes, cows, goats & even a donkey who had a brief solo part in the performance.. all treasures for our senses as we caught up on family conversation. On the flip side of nature on yet another eve after a hot, steamy day, we witnessed the stillness give way to a rush of wind stirring the trees off in the distance, the sound intensified as we watched the force bend the trees nearer & nearer until pelting rains forced us to slip through the patio doors into cool comfort. Sweet deal! Our days found us at nearby Wyalusing hiking the trails that'd been inaccessible during a previous visit - Wow, the Treasure Cave! Or kayaking the peaceful backwaters spotting 3 eagles tolerating us as we paddled ever closer. The Iowa parks claimed several hours of our time too with a beauty & history all their own. After day trips to the parks or visiting sites in PDC we refreshed & renewed back at the cabin, a beautiful, amazing & unique structure which was far more spacious than expected & with comforts way beyond necessities. A place Kathy made us truly feel was our home away from home!"

July 1-4, 2016 Writing in the Cabin Journal-"Wow-the first word that comes to mind about this cabin. You have a true gem here. Sitting on the deck in the AM with coffee or in the late afternoon with and adult beverage was so quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The cabin was decorated so beautifully and loved the little knick knacks to set it off. We ate all dozen eggs from 'the girls'. We haven't eaten that many in the last month!"

July 14-17, 2016 Writing in the cabin journal-"Mrs. Kathy, I think I speak for all of us when I say this place is amazing. It's such a beautiful cabin that just feels so welcoming. Impressed with the beautiful "twin falls" waterfalls with soothing trickle! Didn't see the TV on once. Thanks!"

I will share a review from August 5, 2015:

"Amazing! Totally comfortable! Spotless! Beautiful! Heavenly! You have a real gem here! This cabin, not so little(!), is spectacular! (Note all the exclamations...that's how we felt here!) This was the perfect place for us to unwind...brings new meaning to R&R. We thank you so much for your wonderful and warm hospitality! We will definitely spread the word back in Milwaukee... We wish you all nothing but good health and beautiful days...With many thanks.

P.S. Looooved seeing your beautiful animals!

Opening on August 29th 2014, our two bedroom custom built log cabin is 10 years old and nestled in the bluffs near Wyalusing State Park. This is not an 'Amish' cabin like most of the rentals are. Our cabin is one of a kind. It is secluded on the edge of the woods but close to civilization. Though we also have our home on the 40 acre property, the cabin is on a private lane, secluded and peaceful. The Bagley Cabin is a clean and comfortable cabin where you will find the relaxation that you long for in a peaceful, natural, park like setting. It is very simply furnished, not high end style, but I think you'll find it very charming. I wanted it to have the home-like feel of an old Northwoods cabin in the woods- a back to the basics feel.

The main floor has an open floor plan with the kitchen to the west and the living room toward the east. The cabin has many sets of windows and patio doors that open to a deck. The bathroom with tub and shower is on this floor.

This log cabin is 5 minutes from Wyalusing State Park and not more than 10 minutes from Wyalusing Beach and the boat landings either at Wyalusing or Bagley. If you need a little more contact with the outside world, we are about 12 minutes from Prairie du Chien and 20 minutes from the shops in Marquette or Mcgregor.

Like I mentioned, our cabin is very clean and comfortable, which I make my priority. It is nestled in the trees and from the windows in the open kitchen and living area you will be able to watch deer, turkeys and birds. The cabin has a furnished kitchen so you can do your grocery shopping before you get here and settle in for a few days. A TV, (no cable), and DVD player are in the living room area with a selection of movies for those that would just like to curl up on the couch and enjoy the solitude. There are plenty of blankets and pillows in the living room for nesting.

The bedrooms are in the lower level which are a stairway away from the bathroom. There is a sofa sleeper on the main floor for those who wish to have a bathroom on their sleeping level. Both of the bedrooms downstairs have queen beds. This quiet cabin in the woods is just the place to get a welcome rest. We want you to feel right at home and sleep peacefully in our log cabin.

There is a campfire ring where you could relax with a fire in the evening. We will provide the wood for your 'campfires' but PLEASE, NO 'Bonfires' in the firepit. It's very possible if you're quiet you will see deer stroll through the woods as the sun goes down.

We keep a horse and pony, a few sheep,some chickens and a couple barn cats on our little acreage. I would be happy to share some farm fresh eggs for your breakfast.

Our cabin would be a great place to make your home base for a relaxing vacation in the Bagley, Wyalusing, Prairie du Chien, Marquette, McGregor, Lancaster, Fennimore and surrounding areas.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin was built by Michael and Jason Udelhofen from Cassville, Wisconsin. They take great pride in their work and are artists when it comes to cabin building. This cabin was a small undertaking for them but it has touches of their creativity all through it.

It sits on the edge of the woods and there is always wildlife on the property. It is secluded and private, yet easy to get in and out on the short driveway off Cooley Lane. You will feel close to nature out here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I sit here on our 3rd morning at this peaceful cabin and it's time to go home. :( If it wasn't booked right after us, I know we would stay another night. We have really enjoyed our stay here. It is so pleasant and quiet. I wish we had just 1 more night and tomorrow I would say just 2 more nights, the next day 3 more nights, etc.

The only time we left was to visit the waterfalls and introduce ourselves to Kathy and Dick, very nice people. I wish they were our neighbors for more than 3 days.

Otherwise we stayed here to just relax, read, watched a couple movies Kathy had cooked together and caught up on some much needed alone time. (Yesterday was our 34th anniversary) Seriously the secret to the perfect spouse started long before 34 years ago. You pray and ask God to lead you to the person He wants you to marry.

It's time to get packing up for home and back to our hectic lives, work, children, elderly parents. Thank you Kathy and Dick for a great time.

Very nice cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend. The cabin is very nice, very clean, spacious and comfortable. The setting is beautiful, out of the way and feels very private. The dozen eggs waiting for us in the fridge were a special treat. Kathy and her husband are very hospitable; they took care of Diane when she wanted to go for a hike while I was fishing.

Peaceful getaway - great place to relax and reenergize

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cabin with my parents as a last fall minute getaway. It was everything we were hoping for - quiet, peaceful, clean and well kept, with relaxing decor. We enjoyed an evening by the fire, with wood provided by the owners, and enjoyed sitting out listening to the sounds of the surrounding country side. Beds were great (sometimes a difficult thing to find). There was a terrific selection of local information and reading materials - I could have left my books at home and I would have found enough in the cabin to keep me occupied. The owner left a dozen eggs from her hens for us in the fridge, which we enjoyed. Only suggestion - maybe add a baking sheet so we could have our cinnamon rolls with the delicious eggs.

We are definitely putting this cabin on our list to return to for when we need to get way from the craziness of life. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Owner's Response: Thank you Becky! What a nice review of the cabin. I am glad that your family enjoyed your stay. Wish I would have know that you needed a baking sheet. I could have had one for you but will add one now. Thank you and God bless. Kathy

Cozy Little Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a cozy little home that comfortably accommodated 2 adult couples. It was very clean, which is always important when we stay away from home. The owner is very particular and makes clear her expectations, which are understandable and easy to respect. This house is out of the way of everything, yet close enough to enjoy what the area has to offer. It was nice to sit by a fire in fellowship and enjoy gazing at the stars. I would definitely recommend this property for a quiet get away.

Musty but functional

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is in a field behind the owners house, pretty difficult to find and unmarked. Once we found it, it is very secluded and private.

The upper level is spacious and clean, but shabby. The lower level, where the bedrooms are were musty and damp. Pretty unpleasant in August.

The sleeper sofa in the living room is ancient, despite the fact she indicates it was just added.

A Bagley Cabin in the woods

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was located in a quiet peaceful area indeed in the woods. There were birds in the trees and rabbits scampering on the lawn. Lovely deck for enjoying morning coffee or evening relaxation. There were many small towns to explore with all their history, parks with trails were located near this property. Kathy was very helpful about things to do in the area. We had a car issue and Kathy was so very supportive of our problem. If you go remember to ask to see the falls. Such a relaxing place. Thanks Kathy.

Owner's Response: Barbara, Thank you! It was nice having you both here for the week. I am glad you enjoyed the trip to the waterfall. Thank you so much for the little bird dish you left for me. It is beautiful. Maybe we will meet again someday. All the best to you. Kathy

Ok rural cabin. Owner too emotionally attached to property, many rules and do nots for our comfort.

  • 3 of 5

Owners property is close to this log cabin/cottage. Felt she was watching our every move. So many rules i.e. remove shoes, no visitors, a fully functional basement (where the two bedrooms are located) walk out door she has a post a note stuck on, asking us not use for no apparent reason. My wife, teenage daughter and her friend enjoyed the little stream and nature walk. We enjoyed good cell phone signal strength and the cabin has good internet wifi. When in the area next time, we will stay somewhere else.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Mark. I do not watch my guests every move. My guests have complete privacy and I have never had a guest take advantage of my good nature like you did. I rent my cabin out for a maximum of 4 people yet I agreed to let you talk me into adding two teenage additional teenage girls to your party. I could have lived with that. And I could have lived with your son coming over to visit you. But on the second day of your stay when I saw a group of at least 10 people getting into cars, I took note. The next day, I came home from my job at the library to see a big white passenger van sitting in the cabin driveway and your car was not to be seen. While on my deck putting string in my weedeater, I saw a group of at least 10 boys/young men loading into the passenger van and watched them peel gravel in my driveway. Your car was not there so I believe that you were not there. Yes, I love my cabin and our property, so I don't appreciate being taken advantage of. I would have like to have been asked if I would mind having your groups of friends from Country On The River use the cabin for meals or showers. Our family would not rent a cabin and expect to bring in groups of visitors. I don't believe that any property owner or guest would think that your use of my property was respectful.
