One of the many wonderful reasons to visit the Driftless Area are the charming towns that dot the countryside, each alive with their own vibrant and unique personality. One of our favorite towns to spend a day in is the historic town of Prairie du Chien, located on the banks of the stunning Mississippi River. This quintessential river town, which happens to be the second oldest settlement in the state of Wisconsin, is brimming with pride and a deep sense of history. Here, you’ll find plenty of historic sites to visit, some dating back to the days of fur trading on the Mississippi River, in addition to a variety of fun attractions, spectacular shopping, great restaurants, and a wide variety of opportunities for recreation and enjoyment along the way.

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.
