About the property

1 bedroom & upper great room, 1 full bath & laundry, sleeps 4

This 750 square feet, 2 level cottage is located on a wooded hilltop in Richland County's Driftless and Ocooch Mountains area, the valley below offers a southwesterly view and sunsets that soothe the senses; inclusive during your stay are 2 acres of landscaped area which embrace it in addition to 2 miles of seasonal walking/ backcountry snowshoeing & skiing trails and terrain, plateaus, a burn pit, barb-b-que grills w/charcoal & lighter fluid, lawn chairs and 37 acres of wooded land. Between Lone Rock and Richland Center WI, this location offers comfortable travel to LaCrosse, Wisconsin Dells, Madison and Dodgeville in addition to the Spring Green area with the American Players Theatre, the House On The Rock and the Frank Lloyd Wright facilities. Golf, Hiking, Bicycle trails, Summer and Fall Music Festivals, Wineries and Seasonal Fishing/Hunting are among the many activities that can be enjoyed.

'Never touched by glaciers, the Driftless Wisconisn Area is characterized by its beautifully sculpted topography. Forested hillsides reach down to valleys cut into limestone bedrock by cold-water trout streams. Forests, prairie remnants, wetlands, and grasslands provide habitat for wildflowers and wildlife. Land is farmed by the descendants of those who first settled here, by the Amish who adopted the area, and by a new breed of organic farmer. Artists, who need look no further than their own backyard for inspiration, create works of infinite variety.

The great diversity of the Driftless Wisconsin area means something to suit the taste of every visitor. You can simply enjoy the peace and beauty of the countryside with a good book, a cup of coffee from a local roaster, or a glass of wine from a local vineyard. You can don your waders and hope to outwit a brook trout on a cool foggy morning. You can get on your bike and wind your way through magnificent scenery. You can shop for art, antiques, handmade furniture, artisanal cheeses, or locally-grown foods.'

Country Charmer!

  • 5 of 5

Great little getaway cabin, well-equipped with modern appliances (including washer/dryer) and satellite tv. Enjoyed the beautiful walking paths on the property, and the quiet. Easy access to Madison and Spring Green attractions, as well as to local hiking and biking trails. Owner very helpful and nice.

Dale was so kind and kept to himself.

The rental was cute and cozy. The property was just surreal. Quiet. Much of a serenity feel. Many hiking trails with cute little decors along the way. Very close to The House on the Rock. Many beautiful state parks. I highly recommend staying here.

Nice little Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Hubby and I did our Fall Retreat here at Dale's cabin and we had all we needed. Very cozy and beautiful, just wished we would have stayed 1 more day to walk all the trails as the property is so pretty in the Fall! Small but very clean and well groomed. Though owner is right next door, we had all the privacy we needed. 20 minutes from House on the Rock and Taliesen/Frank Lloyd Wright Home.

We had an excellent stay. The abundance of private trails on the property were really a nice touch. The many different sitting areas around the property are individually beautiful. Dale was so nice and accommodating, we will definitely be coming back.

Dale's Retreat was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was neat and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Dale provided everything you could need and more. Pleasantly surprised by the supply of coffee and tea. Bottled water in the refrigerator along with creamers and sugar packets. Shampoo and body wash was supplied too. Dale thought of everything. The house was decorated very well. His hiking trails were terrific. I highly recommend Dale's Retreat. The hiking trails at Governor's Dodge State Park were magnificent. I highly recommend the Lost Canyon Trail and the Pine Cliff Trail. The scenic trail along the Mississippi was awesome with at stop at the locks to watch a barge going through.

Beautiful place! Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it here! I enjoyed the privacy and the trails and the extremely peaceful setting. Everything was very clean and in good order and we lacked for nothing. The cats were also a fun little perk. Would certainly consider coming here again!
