Becca's Driftless Manor is close to La Crescent Minnesota and La Crosse Wisconsin. Three miles from La Crescent the drive up our hill provides spectacular views of the Mississippi River Valley. Our place is minutes from: the airport, great dining, family-friendly activities, apple orchards, three college campuses, shopping, river fun in the summer and snow skiing in the winter. You can enjoy the fresh air or cozy up to a warm fire. We can also accommodate those traveling with equines.

The space
Our two story home has five bedrooms rarely used, that we're sharing with visitors. Upstairs there are four rooms that are rented to only one party at a time. Three bedrooms are about 14' x 14' with large windows looking out at beautiful country scenes. The fourth bedroom is smaller and setup for children. There is a crib and bunk beds with a double futon on the bottom. The bathroom is private for guests renting the upper bedrooms. There is also a shared half-bath on the first floor. We live on the first floor but welcome visitors to share the kitchen, two large family rooms both with TVs, one with a large copper-top bar and wine cellar and the other with a large fireplace and piano. Guests are invited to enjoy the entire property.

The entire place is also available for large groups, we've accommodated up to 14 at one time - all in their beds with two and one-half baths. Please contact us for availability, number of beds needed and pricing.

Where you’ll be

La Crescent, Minnesota, United States

Our home is three miles from La Crescent along Apple Blossom Drive (County Road 1). It overlooks the Mississippi River. It is on five acres that are filled with mature trees which provide many private spaces to sit and relax or walk around for fresh air or for a visit to our neighbor's winery: River View Vineyard & Winery. We overlook the Mississippi River so during spring and fall we enjoy watching many migrating flocks of ducks, geese, pelicans, eagles, great herons. Our neighbor has a nesting box for peregrine falcons. The songbirds love our trees and hummingbirds regularly buzz us while sitting outside. The deer are frequent visitors as are a variety of squirrels, rabbits and other critters.

Our property is in the heart of the Driftless Region - an area untouched by the glaciers preserving unique topography and wildlife. It is featured in a 26 minute youtube video for those interested in learning more about the "Mysteries of the Driftless". The Mysteries of the Driftless is a documentary about a team of explorers and scientists kayaking down deeply cut tributary valleys, flying in ultralights, and climbing rocky bluffs to reveal answers to the mysteries within the driftless area. Their journey will expose both the science and threats behind three unique features of the zone - rare plants and animals, odd geological phenomenon, and striking remnants of a Native American pilgrimage like no other.

What these explorers reveal will not only give the audience a greater appreciation for the unique diversity of this "island of land" that escaped glacial scouring, but will inspire a greater appreciation for this amazing area. The goal is not to answer all the mysteries, but to document the exploratory process for the viewers. In the end, the film will ignite the curiosity of viewers to discover more about the area for themselves.

My husband and I are in our mid 60s, we operate a small business in La Crosse Wisconsin and we love the country life style. Two horses are like big dogs, two dogs, two cats and chickens that provide the best fresh eggs. We enjoy traveling but mostly we visit our grand kids in Minneapolis. Sharing our home with folks from other corners of this world is our great pleasure.
