About the property

House, 2.5 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-7)

The Cottage is a second 'daily rental' offered by Barb Janssen featuring all the comforts of home. This house is located across the street from the Bluff View House.

The Cottage offers a relaxing, quiet and cozy atmosphere with hand-crafted butternut kitchen cabinets and oak countertops. Just the right amount of 'rustic' combined with 'modern' makes this house a great lodging option. This fully furnished and clean 2.5 bedroom bungalow sleeps five comfortably.

The yard offers a cobblestone patio with table and chairs, barbeque grill, shade trees, lilac bushes, sumac trees, etc. Off street parking for two is provided next to the back door.

Cozy little cottage in a great location

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Cottage which is located right next to Myrick park and close to the university and other places in LaCrosse. It was clean and tidy and met all our basic needs for a good bed, full kitchen, hot shower and what makes it so much better than a motel: a lovely quiet neighborhood.

Two nights in LaCrosse

  • 4 of 5

We spent two nights in The Cottage. Although it rained a lot we found fun. The Cottage is RIGHT AROUND the CORNER from Myrick marsh, where we took a fabulous family birdwalk. The next day it was great for a 5K run while the kids enjoyed the excellent playground. The Cottage was comfortable and clean and we were able to cook all our meals and even wash/dry clothes (we got wet in the rain). We appreciated that Barb brought over some games for the kids. We LOVED playing croquet and horseshoes on the lawn. The "half bedroom" was the coveted spot for little girls. The third bedroom with a fold-out couch is not for those with back problems. The Cottage provided a quiet, residential place for us to stay with two small children at a very reasonable price. I would return ... maybe the next time it won't rain!

Owner's Response: I recommend using the memory foam mattress topper when using the sofa/sleeper. This extra step makes the sofa/sleeper much better better according to past guests.
