Wonderful & Relaxing Vacation: Our vacation home is a renovated farmhouse. Enjoy the quiet country life as you relax in this beautiful country location. Relax in the hot tub while enjoying the view of the surrounding hills and fields. Swing on the front porch swing and watch the birds soar in the air or the sheep contentedly graze in the pasture. Walk down to the river and fly fish or wade, splash or swim in the water or just enjoy watching the water make it's way towards the Mississippi river downstream. Walk on the quiet country roads and enjoy the scenic views, cows grazing, wild flowers in bloom, deer, eagles and hawks soaring, farm fields and the wooded hillsides.
A fresh batch of homemade cookies await your arrival as well as a dozen farm fresh eggs from our farm. Our family lives a mile away, so you are the only people on this property.
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
This property exceeded the expectation for it's listed offerings. There is nothing stated that isn't delivered. Compound that with the setting and surroundings and it equates to a stay that you can't expect more from. We'll be back.
We enjoyed everything! What a beautiful home with everything you needed and more than expected! We enjoyed the peace and relaxation of watching the animals and unwinding in the hot tub and simply walking around the property and pastures. I can't say enough about how wonderful it was. Just FABULOUS!
The fresh cookies and eggs were divine! We enjoyed the quiet time together - never turned on an electronic device once! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful property and home with us. We are coming back soon -- maybe next time we'll bring the kids. :)
A must for anyone! Beautiful scenery!
We enjoyed everything. The home was beautiful and lacked nothing. The people were so friendly and informative about area and animals on the farm. The animals were so much fun to watch and interact with. Overall more than we hoped for and we will definitely be coming back and telling family and friends about this wonderful spot in Wisconsin.
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.
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!
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!
