We mention time and time again how wonderful it is to spend time in the unique and beautiful region of Wisconsin that is called the Driftless Area, or Driftless Wisconsin, but we find that it’s something few people actually know much about. The Driftless Area is a region like no other in the Upper Mississippi River Basin. The unique geography of this region, where you’ll find deeply carved river valleys contrasted with steeply rising bluffs, was created as the last continental glacier melted 100,000 years ago, leaving it untouched by the glacial forces that shaped the remainder of the midwest. Our Vacation Rental is located in Soldiers Grove, Wisconsin, nestled on 100 beautiful acres in the heart of Driftless Wisconsin. Book a weekend with us today, and come explore the fascinating history and diverse landscapes of the Driftless Area.

Our family stayed in mid-August. We had a very relaxing visit. The house is comfortable and the property is encircled by hills, making the experience a unique getaway. We enjoyed building bonfires each night, hanging out in the nice living room and taking the surprisingly lengthy hikes that are all on the property. Mornings started with coffee on the second story porch overlooking the meadow and hills, evenings ended with zero noise except that made by nature or our family. Each night there was a canopy of bright stars that weren't diluted by light pollution. We enjoyed hiking Wildcat Mountain, canoeing down the Kickapoo, roasting smores and hanging out. My son and I tried our luck at trout fishing in a nearby stream (Tainter?). It was an enjoyable, unique experience although we didn't catch anything. We'll be back.
