About Sheila Hegge
We are a family owned and operated business. As a family we have made many great memories here and still do. Our technology out here in the country isn't so good so we do a lot of board / card games and outdoor activities. We opened as a vacation rental hoping others would enjoy our home and make their own great memories.
Sheila Hegge purchased this Estate in 1998

Large group staying for wedding in the area
Our group of 12 spent three nights here. There was plenty of room for everyone. We enjoyed the house and the walking trails. Everything went really well.
The property was great and we loved the house. A lot of the outside sports equipment wasn't in the best of shape. I was disappointed that the hot tub wasn't working as we were looking forward to that. Very good supply of glasses, but hardly any cups for our many coffee drinkers.
Dear Mary Ann,
We so enjoyed seeing your family playing games in the side yard, conversing on the front porch, and enjoying our country home. It was a pleasure to meet your family. We try to have a supply of outdoor games for guests to use, if they forget to bring their own. Note: There was never a hot tub with this unit. Thank you for informing me about the coffee cups, we have purchased more.
Sincerely Sheila Hegge
This property was a perfect setup for our family reunion. We had ages ranging from 3 months old to 69 years old and everywhere in between. The space available for everyone was adequate. The green space for the kids to run around and the outdoor activities available were great! There is a quick trip just down the road, so even though the property is out in the country, the gas station allows for a place to pick up anything forgotten. LaCrosse is about 20 minutes away and can provide for some additional recreation or eating opportunities. Overall, we LOVED our stay!
Stacey, We so enjoyed hosting your group, the children were a delight. Thank You for choosing our unit for your gathering.
We had an amazing time at Heege Vacations Haven! What a beautiful place!
18 ladies from Minnesota and Madison all traveled for a Bachelorette Party! It was perfect!. This location was half way for each group. We had a blast being outside during the day and in the game room at night. Sheila was there to meet me right when I got there at check in time. She was so kind, accommodating and I was thrilled this was where we were for the weekend!
Almost everyone in our group was shocked how nice the place was. I think they were expected something less "Fancy". Beautiful place. We brought 20 high school students and parents to go fishing in La Crosse. The stunning scenic drive made the 20 minute commute 100% worth it. Excellent experience. The kids loved the warm basement floors the most. It helped to dry their boots really nice with the in floor heat.
