Summertime in the country

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely beautiful location with a gorgeous panorama! The bunkhouse was just what we were hoping for. We were wanting a relaxing country stay, we got that and more. Our favorite times were the morning coffees on the completely screened front porch!! The area has a lot to offer with hiking, kayaking, biking and shopping.

Brent and Janis are the most gracious and welcoming hosts! Very knowledgeable of the area and the history of the ranch, which added to the stay at property. Loved visiting with Janis and she makes you feel like old friends. It was a family stay with elderly mom and a dog, they welcomed all and were so accommodating to mom. We all had a perfect stay.

Thank you Brent and Janis...if ever we travel back this way, we will stay here!

Charming renovated Farmhouse in Wisconsin's beautiful Driftless Area

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bunkhouse. Brent and Janice were the sweetest hosts imaginable and went out of their way to insure our stay was comfortable. They had a great deal of information to share and we especially enjoyed learning the history of the farmhouse. The area is beautiful and has so much to offer - we loved canoeing the Kickapoo River, hiked at the Kickapoo Reserve, Pike's Peak State park and Wildcat Mountain. The Viroqua Farmers Market is awesome as well as the Viroqua Co-op. Be sure to have a meal at the Driftless Cafe, a farm-to-table restaurant in Viroqua. All in all it was such a peaceful, relaxing place to unwind.
