Our family of 6 owns & operates the vacation rental. We live 1 mile down the road. We met while serving in the US Navy and moved to Viroqua because of a business opportunity as well as the beauty of the area and it was within a 1 day drive to both sets of our parents.

Nancy Henckel purchased this farmhouse in 2009

We purchased the property so that we would have more pastureland for our flock of sheep and the house and location seemed ideal for a vacation home rental. Nancy grew up on a family owned & operated resort in NE WI and this is a return to her roots.

It is set in a beautiful peaceful valley. Relax on the porch and watch the sheep graze in the pasture. Tour the area and discover the beautiful coulee region

Another Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time we've stayed at the property and we already have our next visit planned. The house is great, the setting in lovely and the peaceful time away is priceless. The kitchen is well set up with everything that you could need to prepare homemade meals. Sitting in the hot tub at night under the wealth of stars is incredibly relaxing. You can do alot (biking, hiking, etc.) or you can just spend time together watching movies (there is a RedBox in Viroqua) or bird watching on the front porch. Thanks Nancy for making it so easy to relax and get away to the valley.

3 Happy Couples, 1 Happy Dog

We had a GREAT time at the farm house we rented in Viraqua! We walked the trails, fed the sheep and llama, grilled and hung out in the hot tub! It was very relaxing! My dog even had a good time being a farm dog for a few days! We looked into scheduling a week this summer, but it was booked until the end of October. We would highly recommend this property!

Couples weekend!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for a better place to stay for our couples weekend, the place was super clean, had everything you needed. The hot tub was wonderful, sitting in it Friday night as the snow was falling was just beautiful, and very peaceful. The cookies, jelly and fresh eggs were a super bonus, very very good! I would highly recommend!

Thank you.

We absolutely loved the farmhouse. It was immaculately clean. The homemade cookies were delicious. We especially enjoyed meeting the Suede the llama. On Saturday we went to the Old Fashioned Christmas at Norskedahlen. All of us said we would love to stay at the farmhouse again. Nancy even let us order farm fresh eggs to take home. Of all the girls weekends we have had together, this was our favorite home. I wish we had snow because I would have liked to try the snow shoes. Thank you Nancy for allowing us this wonderful memory.

We had a great time at your lovely farmhouse. Our three adult children and extended families met us for the weekend. It rained 2 of the 3 days but we still had a great time playing games and between rain showers, went for a beautiful fall walk on the long trail. The suspension bridge over the creek was fun! The farmhouse was spotless,well equipped, and lacked for nothing. We had the picture for our family Christmas card taken on your front porch. Have already recommended your place to many others.
Thank you for a wonderful place to create family memories.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were planning a trip to Viroqua for fly fishing for weeks but failed to get our accommodations sorted out until a few days before our trip. We decided to look into the vacation rental idea because we had another couple staying with us and a cabin or cottage seemed ideal for the space we required. We found this place by just googling vacation rentals in Virqua. And while it was not available on the last night of our stay, we booked the first 2 nights anyways. Nancy was the owner and contact and was helpful to us from the outset with the information we needed upon arrival.

On the arrival date, we actually didn't get to the house until almost 1am after the drive up from Chicago, so were not able to take in the grounds at that point. We were MORE than happy with the interior and the accommodations however. What was the icing on the proverbial cake was the homemade chocolate chip cookies and jam on the dining room table and the farm fresh eggs in the fridge. What an awesome touch! With the benefit of daylight, we were able to see all the surrounding land had to offer: the ecclectic manage of animals in the pasture out front, the resident cats (who we read in the book could be removed for those allergic or simply not into cats, but not an issue for us!), the playground for those who have kids and the Bad Axe just beyond the berm and another pasture behind the house. The house itself is just cute too which we couldn't really see when we arrived.

All in; the value for the money, the features, the amenities, the special treatment and the location, we will definitely be back - especially when traveling with others which we often do when we head up to the Driftless.
