Caballete is a Rustic Retreat located in one of the most beautiful ridge lines in Jackson County. It has been family owned and maintained for several generations. Highlights include: Full working Kitchen including dishes for cooking & eating and a Breakfast Nook perfect for Bird Watching. Three multi-level decks, a Weber charcoal grill, stone camp fire pit with all the charcoal and wood provided. Unique rooms include a Stone Floor Sunken Den, Music Room with tuned Piano, Library and TV Room with Two Story wall of Books both old and new.

Caballete Retreat ~ About us: ~This Rustic Retreat is located in one of the most beautiful ridgelines in Jackson County. Owned by Dan & Sara Scholze, and managed Sara, Caballete Retreat (Caballete is Spanish for 'ridge') is large enough to accommodate up to eight (8) guests comfortably. (Additional Guests by prior approval only please) The Valley and Ridges Surrounding have been kept in the family for several generations. Caballete Retreat is a 'Home' more so than a Cabin or Retreat and was lived in full time up until the Fall of 2005.

A Secluded, Private, Ridge Retreat: ~Need to Relax? You've picked the right place. Nestled into the Ridges, this Retreat offers a secluded, very quiet and private get-away. Wildlife abounds with birds, squirrels, deer, turkey, and you might even see the elusive red fox, or a Big Buck just yards from the home.

~Hiking the Ridges is allowed, but please obey all No Trespassing Signs, as we want to respect the neighbors land.

~There is a Beautiful Library with a two story wall filled with shelves of books, photos, and other unique items. Another Highlight is the Sunken Den with a Stone Floor made of Actual Stones dug from the area, and a beautiful Wood Floor. One final special room is the Music Room, where a Large Piano (and it's tuned!) awaits the right person to make some beautiful relaxing music.

Everything but your Food & Drink....: ~All Linens (Sheets), Towels, Hand Towels, and Wash Cloths are provided at NO extra charge. There are dishes available and a few pots and pans for cooking. All we ask is you treat them as your own, and please leave for the next guests to enjoy.

~No Food or Drink is provided, other than the fresh spring water from the well. Local phone service and local TV Channels are provided along with DSL Wireless Internet.

~Outside there are Three multi-level Decks, with a Weber grill awaiting some juicy Steaks (Charcoal included)! A stone camp fire pit can be found with plenty of room to relax around the fire or lay in the hammock. Once again, all the wood provided.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What we loved most was the solitude of Caballete Retreat! There wasn't another home or cabin within a 1/2 mile. It was beautifully wooded. The cabin was very clean! The kitchen and bathroom had absolutely everything we needed. (plenty of towels, washclothes...dishes, pans, etc). We slept 10 comfortably. The fire pit was HUGE and they supplied an unlimited amount firewood. My ONLY complaint was that the firepit was on a slight hill and I would worry about youngsters or older people losing their balance around it, but the owners said they are thinking of leveling off that area. I loved the numerous decks and the numerous bird feeders. Ten different varieties of birds entertained us every morning with our coffee on the deck!There are plenty of cozy sitting rooms within the cabin if you wanted to get away from everybody and read a good book or have a private conversation. The pictures on the website really don't do it justice. We fell in love with it the moment we walked in! They even have a hammock near the fire pit! I hihgly recommend Caballete Retreat. I plan on going back! If you get tired of the peace and quiet, Black River Falls offers a LOT of activities like canoeing, kayaking, golfing, etc. There is something for everyone!

Owner's Response: If you’re looking for a quiet relaxing place to unwind with Family and Friends, we welcome your visit. Located on a Dead End Road and the only Cabin Rental we have, you won't be disturbed by traffic driving by or other vacationing guests. Only a short 10 minute drive from Black River Falls, we are close to most any activities you would like to do during the day, and then get back to relax for the afternoon or evening around the fire or sit out on the back deck watching the wildlife. We appreciate our guests’ suggestions and are always looking to make your next stay even more enjoyable than the last. Thank you!!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to begin! It is an absolutely perfect retreat. When all of us first walked in we were struck by the charm. We explored every room and couldn't help but feel happy! It was so cozy and relaxing. The setting is amazing as we were able to enjoy the peacefulness. We enjoyed watching the wildlife and cannot wait to return when the weather allows us to enjoy the outdoor tranquility! If you are looking for something with modernness and city action this is not the place for you. If you are looking for an escape from hectic life happenings and want to enjoy peace and quiet this is definitely the place for you! The owners are absolutely wonderful and you can tell they go above and beyond to make your visit the best you have ever had!

Owner's Response: This review is really what we work towards for our guests. We want them to feel the calmness of the quietness of the setting and also enjoy the wild life. Besides the Retreat, there is so many nice parks and shopping, and in winter even Bruce Mound for those who want to ski. We continue to think of ways that our guests can enjoy the peacefulness. Thank you for your kind words.

Exactly what we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

Married 27 years and never had a real Honeymoon. This was it! The first time we drove down the dead end road into the woods at the bottom of the ridge, we were in disbelief that it was as beautiful and secluded as we could have imagined. (Drive very slowly; the woods are full of deer!) The house holds secret surprises inside at every turn, and a hike up to the top of the ridge rewarded us with gorgeous views of the valley tinged with the fall colors. We took advantage of the non-weekend rates and got a great deal. Sara and Dan are genuine hosts and truly want you to enjoy your stay.

Owner's Response: We are always happy to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay. We work hard to make it an enjoyable and relaxing Retreat. There is so much to see; and also that their "honeymoon gettaway" was special for them. In the area around Black River Falls right now, the Fall colors are starting, which adds to the fun.

Perfect place to get away to

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this retreat for one month, during May and June and it was everything we were looking for in a getaway. We were looking for quietude, privacy and the comfort of home and were not disappointed. The kitchen was well stocked with every imaginable type of cooking equipment. As a result, I happily prepared most of our meals there so we could sit and enjoy the diverse bird and woodpecker population who entertained us daily right outside our kitchen window. Interesting enough there were many bird varieties not normally seen in the area. The area is also private enough so we could enjoy quiet walks and enjoy the sight of deer and turkeys in their natural setting. The property was cleanjn and well maintained and the owners very responsive to our needs. (Though they pretty much anticipated everything we would need.) I would highly recommend this property to any of my friends, who want to escape from the usual WI vacation of noisy high speed motor boats and jet skis right outside your cabin door, At this property you can spend quality time with yourself, family and friends.

Peacefull setting

  • 4 of 5

Lovely wooded spot, great for my family of 4 and 2 dogs. We enjoyed the woods, the firepit and playing board games at the cozy kitchen table. The owners respect your privacy and leave you alone.

Owner's Response: We are always happy to hear about your stay at Caballete Retreat. And glad you could have an enjoyable time with your family. Sitting around the fire pit is something our family enjoys too, and it gives you time to relax, reflect, and visit together. Thanks for your comments.

Peaceful Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Caballete Retreat while visiting family. It was very clean and inviting. We have never returned to our regular life feeling so rested and relaxed. In the mornings we sat on the deck watching the birds feed and the baby squirrels playing beneath. One morning a buck deer visited. It was soooooooo peaceful. The home is very unique, the multi levels, the old and new in perfect harmony. You will not be disappointed. From the comfy beds, to the 3 decks, the library, and the fire pit. We enjoyed it all, and so did our family members who came out to visit us on our last day there. When you stay here, be sure to go into Black River Falls to the Mocha Mouse for a meal. Home cooking and Wisconsin wines. mmmm!!! The place is wonderful. I would definitely recommend Caballete Retreat. I know that we will be back.

Owner's Response: It is so good to return home from a trip and feel relaxed and refreshed. We are always happy to hear that. And the wild life and birds are so enjoyable to see. Caballete Retreat makes it easy for families to come together from different locations, each sharing some of the driving. We will be happy to have you back.
