This former post office is a well-appointed tiny house (230 SF) and farmstay in the Driftless Region of SW Wisconsin. You'll appreciate amazing views of our century-old hobby farm from the Guesthouse. Nestled in a secluded valley on 13 acres, there is nothing to lose here except the madness of everyday life. This property offers fiber optic Wifi and is 20 mins to Richland Center or 25 mins to Viroqua. Additional accommodations include the Farmhouse Suite (Airbnb) and camping via Hipcamp.

The space
Experience hobby farm living and the privacy of your own guesthouse - at Griff Run. This 13-acre organic hobby farm includes nine historic buildings including a dairy barn and root cellar. Inside the Guesthouse you'll find the perfect blend of old and new; antique furniture and fixtures mixed with modern touches like a 14-inch Saatva mattress, on-demand hot water and air conditioning. While we are not farmers ourselves, we love the company of our (outdoor) animal friends - and the menagerie changes regularly: horses, alpacas, chickens, the lovingest farm cats in WI, and one Goldendoodle. In summer 2019 we welcome two livestock guardian pups, Pyradors, and two baby alpacas (crias) - so stinkin' cute!

Guest access
The Guesthouse offers every necessity; enjoy organic coffee and tea on your front patio. Cook outdoors on your propane grill. A firepit and firewood are exclusively yours. A stroll through the pasture to mingle with the alpacas or gather organic peppermint growing creekside is an excellent way to start or end a day. We'll take you on a full farm tour when you're ready.

Other things to note
We invite our guests to stay at Griff Run and "Lose the Madness." Therefore, technology is purposely limited - as that is our own lifestyle choice. The Guesthouse is equipped with a dedicated and secure fiber optics/modem, however, should you wish to tap in with your cell phone or laptop. A land line is available in the farmhouse in the case of emergencies. There is also no television in the Guesthouse (we haven't watched the news in more than a decade and highly recommend that practice) - you're welcome.

Viola, Wisconsin, United States

Our farm, Griff Run, is nestled in a secluded, private valley in the Driftless Region of SW Wisconsin. We can't see or hear our nearest neighbor, and, while we love them, we love that more. Our neighbors are hard-working farmers, English and Amish, as well as blue and white-collar professionals, like ourselves, just looking for sanctuary. World-class trout streams are a five-minute jaunt down a country road. Roam the area on one-lane farm roads surrounding Griff Run. Or, just stay on the farm and get some loving from our four alpacas. You'll likely lose your cell signal as you descend into our valley. We tend to think that's a good thing...

We moved to Griff Run, our 13-acre hobby farm, from Denver, in 2011. Matthew, a Philly native, electrician and contractor, keeps busy maintaining and upgrading the nine buildings on the farm. The kids, both teenagers, have a love/hate relationship with the farm (love the animals, hate the chores!) and are looking forward to living in larger, urban areas as they choose a college campus (Viola is, technically, 15 minutes from our farm and population 700 - which the parents think is perfect). They'll be back :) Shawna has worked in marketing, crisis management and communications for decades and dedicated five years to different campuses and entities of University of Wisconsin System. Now, she puts all of that experience into efforts at Griff Run, including Hipcamp lodging in 2020 and The Red Barn vintage shop & bakery, opening in 2021.
