Where you’ll be

Ferryville, Wisconsin, United States

Spirit Mound sits approximately 500 yards from the Mississippi River, halfway up the bluff over Great River Road WI35. The area surrounding the cabin is hillside woodland, dotted with prehistoric native mounds (see Polander Mound Group, Wisconsin). The setting is a rural neighborhood with one permanent and one seasonal neighbor. The atmosphere is quiet with morning and evening choruses of birds (and the occasional distant freight train rumble). There are lots of outdoor activities, festivals, flea markets, and local shops and crafts to stay as busy as you want to be. The river itself is magnificent but calming at the same time, so has a very special draw for our family. Picturesque river towns move at their own pace, and the people are friendly and open.

We have a combined family of seven children and six (soon to be seven!) grandchildren. We love to cook, garden, and travel - and our German Shepherd Sarah and cat Bessie.
