The traditional Amish culture in America, which emphasizes simple living, plain dress, and resistance to modern conveniences like electricity, dates back to as early as the 16th century. Amish families have been a feature of the Driftless Area since the mid 1960’s, and their horse-drawn buggies are often seen along the roadside throughout Driftless Wisconsin. One of the many benefits of spending some time in the Driftless Area is being able to take home beautiful and delicious Amish-made goods. These families have kept up with once-commonplace traditions, such as wood working, furniture making, quilt making, basket weaving, baking, and candy making.

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.
