Get Inspired at the Driftless Area Art Festival

Driftless Area Art FestivalWe’ve talked many times about how important and beautiful the sculpted lands of the Driftless Area are.  The forested hillsides and steep bluffs that characterize the Driftless Area stand in sharp contrast to the typically flat lands of America’s Midwest, which were flattened by retreating glaciers in the last ice age. These untouched lands have been a lasting source of inspiration to the many artists that call this region home, including painters, potters, woodworkers, weavers, metalsmiths, musicians, and more.  While it’s possible to experience their art in various regional studios, galleries, and stores, these artists come together once a year to celebrate their art at the popular Driftless Area Art Festival in our hometown of Soldiers Grove.  To experience this artistic world at its best, book your room at our Wisconsin Vacation Rental today.

Unwind at the Driftless Brewing Company After a Full Day of Adventure

Driftless BrewingThe state of Wisconsin has long been synonymous with great tasting beer.  In the past, most beer was produced at large-scale breweries, but gradual changes and innovative local craft brewers have changed this in recent years, giving rise to craft microbreweries.
