Interaction with guests

Holy Cow is our family guest home, owned by myself (Teri) and my brother, Mike. Our friends and family stay here when they visit, provided it’s not already reserved. I have had the pleasure of living in the home for the past few months while recovering from a total knee replacement in January. It is great to have a bedroom, half bath, kitchen, dining and living room the same level, and I love having such an easy walk to the bakery, coffee house, and restaurants. I will be moving out at the end of April and the home will be available for summer rentals beginning in May.

I have been in the real estate business since 1989 and have managed and sold vacation homes for many years. Having traveled quite a bit myself, for both business and pleasure, I am very sensitive to traveler’s wants and needs. It is my wish for your stay to be stress-free, enjoyable and memorable. I am just a phone call or text away if you have questions or need anything - always happy to recommend restaurants, things to do, etc.

I travel for business and like to stay in private homes if possible over hotels. For this trip to Verona a colleague suggested my husband and I stay in New Glarus. So happy to have found Holy Cow Guest Haus! The home is adorable, clean, bright and nicely furnished. The bathrooms were new and the shower was great. All towels and bedding were fresh and clean. The bed was so comfy with a nice lofty comforter. Needless to say, we both got a great night's sleep. Teri, the host, was friendly and helpful in providing information about the area and recommendations of where to eat. We couldn't have been more pleased to stay in New Glarus. The restaurants were fantastic and my husband enjoyed waking to the bakery in the morning for fresh sweet rolls and pastries. This is the best AirB&B home I have stayed in. There is even an exercise bike in the basement and yoga mats. We are already planning a trip back with some friends. It would be the perfect place for a girl's weekend getaway.

Mike and Teri's place is perfect for a weekend getaway to New Glarus! It's so conveniently located; literally in Downtown New Glarus and walking distance to any establishment in town. The house is very cute with a cottage-y feel. Everything was clean and the home was very comfortable for six people. I really recommend this home if you are looking to spend time at the Brewery and in town for the evening. Thanks for a great stay!

This is a lovely house to stay in, it was very welcoming as we came into the Holy Cow house. The furniture and décor were perfect, cows everywhere but not to many, perfect actually! The pictures tell the true story of this little gem in the downtown area. We were able to walk to everything that was going on in this quaint little town. I came to town with my 2 girlfriends and all of the beds were not to bad. The house was very clean, when we got to the house Teri (our host) was doing last minute cleaning so we were able to met her and she was very helpful, so Thanks Teri for that! Would stay again for sure.

This was the perfect house for our weekend trip to New Glarus. The house is very clean, spacious, and well decorated. You cannot beat the location, which is a short walk from downtown New Glarus. The house comes with a binder with all you need to know about the house/ surrounding area, books, board games, and even an acoustic guitar. Teri was very communicative and even provided solid dinner recommendations for our first night in town (the fish fry at Glarner Stube was excellent). Would definitely stay again. Other than that, it's a great place. Thanks for sharing! Bryan, Mary, and Frannie.
