About Pete Holte

I am the second generation owner of my family farm originally purchased in 1947. Through the years it has evolved to a hobby farm with large lawn area, hiking trails through the woods and a small vineyard. The Villa was built after the flood in 2007 to provide office space safely away from floodwaters and to provide a vacation space for those who like to escape to the countryside and enjoy nature or simply to relax and enjoy time with friends and family.

Pete Holte purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Pete Holte chose Wisconsin

I have always enjoyed this property because of its fairly unique setting that includes 2 valleys with lots of hillsides and trees for wildlife habitat and trails throughout for a variety of hiking opportunities. The farm also has numerous springs and streams that provide a place for natural trout reproduction and a relaxing waterfall sound. I guess I have always wanted to share this with other people so that they can enjoy what I live with and with their feedback always enjoy it myself and never take it for granted.

What makes this cottage unique

The setting here is very appealing! The property is surrounded on several sides by running water. Several Waterfalls are on the property and the immediate scenery is incredible throughout the four seasons of the year.

lovely views

  • 5 of 5

Met a couple college pals here for 2 nights. Really pretty area, and the accommodations were very nice. House was clean and comfortable. Would have been nice to know where the property starts/ends. We hiked around a bit, not sure if we were trespassing or not. Saw some deer in the yard, trout in the creek, and heard the coyotes howling away.

A weekend in nature

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at the Villa! Nestled in a beautiful valley surrounded by trees, birds, running water and a waterfall, this up to date home was a delightful place to stay! It was very clean and spacious! Wonderful size kitchen , cook ware & stove top were not great, and living room. The bedrooms were very comfortable! The family room was nice too! We also enjoyed the deck! We would stay here again!

Pleasant, comfortable, clean, quiet and affordable

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this place for two nights as we traveled from Chicago. The first night we stayed alone with our two dogs and the second night we were joined by my sisters, which one was accompanied by their spouse. Although it was a quick stay, we did enjoy the peacefulness of the country. The leaves we beginning to change and there was a chill in the air at night. We left the window open at night and fell asleep to the water rolling in the stream next to the house. The queen beds were adequate. The upstairs suite and loft area is very nicely done. Overall, this place was affordable and comfortable. Perfect for two couples and maybe one kid. We had five adults and it worked with the pull-out twin beds in the loft but obviously not the most comfortable. The one down I had was the roads to the north are being worked on so quick directions or warnings from the owner would have been appreciated especially if you are arriving at night. Wifi from phones on the road can't be trusted in Coon Vally.

This really is a cool property with lots of space to explore and enjoy

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of UWL Alumni that got together here for a small reunion. The house was very nice with more than enough sleeping space to accommodate us. Even better was the actual outdoor property itself with plenty of room for yards games, hiking, bonfire, and other activities. We had a bus pick us up Friday night and Saturday night to bring us downtown to 3rd street which was only about a 30 minute ride each way. The scenery was absolutely great and Pete is a very accommodating host. I would definitely stay here again
