Winter may seem long and cold to most of us in the Midwest, but it always comes to an end. One of the hallmark events that marks the transition from winter to spring in the Driftless Area is the tapping of the sugar maple trees, to produce some of the finest Wisconsin Maple Syrup. We take great pride in the locally produced foods found here, and look forward to this tantalizing treat every year. If you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing the sap harvest, now is a wonderful time to getaway to the Driftless Area. Take a stroll through the woods, visit our neighbors, see how many taps you can spot in the area, and wake up to a delicious breakfast featuring some of the finest Wisconsin Maple Syrup we have to offer, all when you stay at our beautiful Vacation Rental in the heart 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.
