If there’s one thing visitors to the Driftless Region love more than anything else, it’s the beautiful outdoors. This unique region of southwest Wisconsin is a birding paradise, thanks largely to the characteristic bluffs and valleys, the dense thickets of trees covering the hills, and the many rivers that wind along our valley floors. Wisconsin alone is home to more than 300 species of birds. The Driftless Region is located along a portion of the Mississippi Flyway, which is used by over 40% of America’s migrating birds each year. If you’re looking for a relaxing getaway, book your room at our Vacation Rental today, and spend some time birding in the beautiful Driftless Region.

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.
