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.

Perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

Dale was a terrific host. The cottage was perfect for us and the property was spectacular. The location is great....close to Spring Green, Mineral Point and Madison but very much out in the countryside.

I would definitely recommend this cottage for a quiet retreat.

Nice cozy place

My husband and I spent three peaceful nights here and loved it. The property is beautiful, and we took advantage of the nicely-maintained trails on-site. Dale is a courteous and helpful host. I'd definitely go back!

Excellent experience, accessability, and Layout

  • 5 of 5

We were in the area to visit Taliesin and the House on the Rock and didn't want to stay in a hotel. Dale met us and showed us around the property and the home and made sure we had everything we needed. All his recommendations for local restaurants were spot on and we enjoyed the surrounding communities and close proximity to the Spring Green area where we spent our days. We highly recommend the cottage for anyone wanting a relaxing escape with privacy and quiet. Sunsets are beautiful from the property as well.
