Vermont West - Beautiful, Private, Serene Home Away from Home

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Country House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Vermont West is the respite you have been waiting for. A country house, Vermont West is nestled deep in the rolling hills of southwestern Wisconsin. It is a weekend home away from home, filled with serenity and privacy. Situated on a 12 acre tree farm, there are mowed trails to roam on the property, a small winding creek, gardens of wildflowers, a fresh water spring and an evening sky full of stars, dependent on Mother Nature. Regardless of the season, you will find yourself immersed in the beauty of nature and the tranquility of pure relaxation.

Conveniently located between Dodgeville and Spring Green, an approximately 15 to 20 minutes drive to either, you will find an abundant amount of cultural destinations from Taliesen, various Frank Lloyd Wright architectural buildings, American Players Theater, the House on the Rock, Global View, and many others.

If shopping is your preference, you will find many little shops to poke around in, from modern kitchen and gourmet, to antiques and Lands End resale.

If sport is what you are after, fly fishing is excellent in the Otter Creek, just a mile away, great golf courses are located in either Dodgeville or Spring Green, and the hills are to die for, for any bicyclist or cross country skier. Whether you bring your snow shoes or your waders, you will feel right at home.

Vermont West will be one of the most scenic and enchanting country homes you will ever stay at. Our guests are amazed at the sky full of stars on a summers night. The sights and sounds of the abundant wildlife. Deer walking through the hills you can see from the wall of windows in the living room. Falling asleep to the sounds of the coyotes in the distance. The estate is so calming, you can feel the stress roll off. You will find yourself saying like so many before you, 'I don't want to leave and I definitely want to come back!'

Great place to relax and reconnect with family!

Great hosts, everything you need, and beautiful scenery. Plenty of places to hike, bike, and fish. Spring Green, Mineral Point, and Dodgeville are all great little towns to explore.

Lovely setting

A true, get-away-from-it all-location in a beautiful vale. Easy house to settle into with well equipped large kitchen, patio, and 3 large bedrooms. Gracious hosts. We want to go back again.

A clean, cosy, quiet retreat in the hills and valleys of Wisconsin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the Vermont West farmhouse. It was such a nice welcome after a long road trip. Well kept, clean and quiet it offered a comfy bed and a great place to relax. Watching the stars at night, seeing the deer in the woods and decompressing in the sauna were some of our favourite amenities. The owners provided great communication and were available at the drop of a hat. Would recommend this place to everyone!

Excellent place to relax and get together with family. We were there for our son's wedding and enjoyed our time in this quiet, pretty spot. I will definitely recommended this place to family and friends. It was a little confusing to find the first time since we were not familiar with the area, but definitely worth the trouble. I hope to be able to return and enjoy the area another time. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. I enjoyed the mowed trails around the property and walking up the quiet country road in the mornings.
