Delightful place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous property. The view from the deck could not be beat, and the bird feeders drew in tons of incredible birds that could be viewed from inside or out. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need (better than my kitchen at home!) if you are planning to cook. While the wifi at the property is limited - as I believe is outlined in the description - we had no problem getting regular cell service there which was more than adequate for our needs. Decorah is only about a 5 minute drive, and there was tons to do there. Highly recommended in nicer weather is the patio at Pulpit Rock Brewing Company. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to be back again!

Perfect everything!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Valley View to attend/celebrate our daughter's graduation from Luther. It's a lovely, spacious home in a peaceful setting with awesome views! Very clean and relaxing, comfortable beds and a wonderful, well-stocked kitchen. We enjoyed the coffee on the deck in the AM, games in the evening, and the hummingbirds at the feeder. Barbara and her husband were wonderful hosts, even putting out picnic tables and lawn games for our post graduation gathering!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and property. You made our weekend extra special and we hope to be back again!!

Wonderful, a Blessed place to stay.

Hi Barbara and Dave. Just returned back to Waukesha and talked all the way about your home. We enjoyed it so much and hope to return again. What a beautiful view and took a picture of the sun rising this a.m. Sorry about the wine glass but left you some money. We enjoyed the Young , Barth, Bender reunion at the Locust church so saw many relatives and they were told about our lovely Villa home. Thanks again.

Awesome Property

  • 5 of 5

This is an Awesome property. Very Clean and comfortable. So many fun things on display to look at.

I expected the great views from seeing the pictures but a couple added bonuses was the bird watching (along with a baby raccoon who wanted to drink from the bird bath) and central proximity to all the fun things to check out in this area.

I would highly recommend this property and I know we will be back.

Thank You Barbra for sharing your home with us for an awesome get away.

Gorgeous view ! We loved all the birds being so close ; we could even hear the hummer so as they fed. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and pots.
