Located just above the beautiful confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers, Prairie du Chien is the oldest European settlement on the Upper Mississippi River, and certainly a town worth visiting when you visit the Driftless Area. The history of Prairie du Chien dates back to the earliest days of the fur trade between traders and Native Americans. Later, Fort Crawford was built here, which played an important role in Indian relations, the Civil War, and medical experiments attributed with advancing medical science. Eventually, as with many communities in the Midwest, the Rairoads came to Prairie du Chien, and were responsible for furthering the social and economic development of the area. Today, Prairie du Chien is a charming town to visit, full of wonderful historic sites to see and activities to do. Located just 35 miles away, our quiet Vacation Rentals in the heart of the Driftless Area is the perfect place to stay and explore the towns of Driftless Wisconsin.

The 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. Regional microbreweries have made an art form out of combining old-world brewing practices with new local ingredients. As a result, these microbreweries produce some of the most highly regarded beers in the world. Traveling around visiting Wisconsin’s microbreweries has become a great regional tourist attraction, drawing beer lovers from all across the country. Driftless Wisconsin is home to some wonderful microbreweries worth tasting, inlcuding the Driftless Brewing Company (DBC), which is quickly growing in popularity. Driftless microbreweries provide you the perfect way to unwind after a long, hard day of adventure in the hills of the Driftless Area. To experience Driftless Wisconsin’s regional brews, book your room at our Driftless Area Vacation Rental now.

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.
