About The Owner

The Kickapoo Valley has a special place in our hearts as we grew up here and came back to raise our family in this beautiful area. We have three grown boys who love to visit and enjoy the Kickapoo Valley and all it has to offer. We love to share this unique property with family and friends and welcome you to join us too.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2006

Why The Owner chose Hillsboro

We purchased this piece of land several years ago from friends and neighbors, and built the cabin bit by bit over the years with the help of many friends, family, and local craftsmen. We enjoy it's beauty and want to share it with you!

What makes this cabin unique

This setting is like no other. We have a top quality trout stream steps from the front door. Abundant wildlife in every season. The views are gorgeous all around. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting on the porch, watching the wildlife, hearing the sounds of Bear Creek trickling by, enjoying a fire in the fire pit after dark, and just relaxing.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5
It was a quick weekend stay with a lot on our agenda during the day but after sitting on the porch for a few minutes I wanted to cancel our plans and take in the solitude and beautiful view all weekend. We woke up to mist on the hills and got to take a walk through the nearby pine grove and wade in the stream before setting off for the day. The house is set back from the road and is buffered by a cornfield, and there isn't another house in sight so it really feels like a retreat. The cabin is lovingly cared for and well-stocked.

La Farge is a sweet little town less than a mile away for provisions and breakfast, and the region is rich with beautiful views, farm stands, hiking, and salt-of-the earth people!

I can't wait to come back! Thanks for a great stay!

Our 1 week stay

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying here for 1 week Aug 18-25. From the very first moments of arrival we knew it was going to be a great week. Every day we had a bald eagle visit and stay in a tree about 100 yards from the cabin. Fishing in the trout stream by the cabin was great and some trout were caught. The cabin is beutiful and comfortable. Even with rain we were able to sit on the porch and enjoy the view. Being able to bring our dog and watch him walk all over and go in the stream was great. Thanks for a great experience Barry and Beth.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My husband, dog and I stayed here for a long weekend. We had a great time on the property and surrounding area. Trout were caught in the stream right behind the cabin, we walked the property and gazed at the stars at night. It was a perfect mini vacation for our little family. Our golden retriever had just as much fun going in and out of the creek. We also hiked Wildcat Mountain and canoed the Kickapoo. There are a few places to eat nearby but we mostly cooked everything right at the cabin. We spoke with Barry a couple times during our stay and he was very helpful and friendly. We'll definitely try to get back to this little piece of paradise.

Amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was exceptional. When we pulled into the driveway, we knew this place would exceed our expectations. The cabin is a good distance from the highway, which we could not hear at all. We came to this area to relax and visit the Amish communities within the area. What we found out is that we want to come back to explore the area parks and trails as well as relax by the trout stream. While it rained most of the time we were here, it didn't matter. The area is beautiful, the owners were friendly and answered our questions. The land that this cabin sits on is absolutely gorgeous. The cabin itself was setup wonderfully. The bed was comfortable. Looking from the living room through the glass patio doors to see outside was a treat. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place for people to enjoy. We can not wait to come back.

Trout water 50 feet from the door!!

  • 5 of 5
Cabin was very nice. The 2 daughters loved the loft. The dog was happy to run along the stream and pick up scents never experienced in the City. I caught several Brown and Brook trout over our 3 day stay. Nightime fire and a skyful of stars after grilled steaks. Beautiful!

Wonderful cabin and location

  • 5 of 5
For spring brea our family has gone to Tennessee, in Wears Valley, outside of the huge tourism area of Gatlinburg. We found that this area of Wisconsin to remind of us of being there. We were surprised that we lived here our entire lives and didn't realize the beauty in this area of the state (an hour from hustle of the Dells). Despite the dreary weather, we found this cabin and area to be a wonderful getaway. The owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. The small added touches were nice. For example, travel size toothbrushes incase someone forgot and only after we found a Walgreens in Viroqua, learned owner stocked small sized saline solution for contact lenses! Also, as past guests have said, the pictures do not do the interior of the cabin justice (must be the flash or lighting). The cabin was a perfect size, and very warm, comforting and modern. The pictures do now show living room but had a couch and fouton, enough for all to sit and flatscreen tv mounted on wall. It was the best of both worlds, modern yet with a real cabin feel. We did awake to our surprise, snow ! So we were able to tell what it may look like in winter, despite fact it was mid April and can only imagine what it looks like when trees are in bloom. The landscape was breathtaking and as past reviews stated, expansive and it felt as if you were in the middle of nowhere yet were close to the main road (as not to feel isolated). Our kids romped all over despite fact it was not best weather conditions- as they loved fact they could explore and we could see them from campfire. The sound of the creek was peaceful. Thanks to the owners for renting out this beautiful home. We plan to come back to canoe the Kickapoo.
