About this listing
Converted granary cabin in the heart of the Driftless region of Southwest Wisconsin. If you want to get away and be in nature, this area is it.
Set back on the property the cabin is on 80 acres of valley and ridge, fields and forest.
We are located in a very rural area. If you love nature then this is a great fit for you. If you like a clear night sky full of stars sitting around a campfire, waking up to a cacophony of birds singing, coyotes howling and owls hooting in the night, and a incredible diaspora of flora, fauna, and wildlife then you will love it here. If a spider in your cabin makes you squeamish, or rustic is not your thing then this might not be the right fit.
Cabin and Farm amenities include:
- 1 large bedroom with 2 full futon beds and a single bed
- bathroom with clawfoot tub

Interaction with Guests
You can knock on our door if you need anything. We are around but make sure to give you as much privacy as you want.
I love our area of Wisconsin. It's ancient glacial topography is magical. The community is very eclectic and people are very friendly. It's a very food and outdoor activities focused area. There is a lot of organic farming. Because it isn't one of the more major tourist areas it feels like a private eden with it's subtle and not so subtle beauty.
Other Things to Note
We don't have air conditioning in the cabin. On hot days if you keep the windows open at night to let the cool air in and keep the fans (there are 2 in the cabin) on for circulation, and close the windows during the day it is usually comfortable.
Children under 1 do not count as an extra person.
We love to have guests and hope you will enjoy your stay. We ask that you treat the land gently and respect it as we do. This includes not littering and being very careful with campfires. Always have the hose on hand when having a campfire and always put it out before leaving it. If it is a windy day please no fires. Smoking allowed outdoors.
No guns, hunting, or fireworks on the property.
Annie and Tommy were awesome and very welcoming. They made sure we knew all the deets and even shared some veggies from their garden with us.
The Red Clover Cabin was absolutely perfect! It was even better than we expected. The hiking trails are phenomenal and provide stunning scenery, while the cabin itself is cozy yet spacious, rustic yet modern, and very well-maintained. The only problem with the place is you'll never want to leave!
Annie and Tommy were completely welcoming and accommodating. They gave us fresh vegetables from their garden and let us meet their awesome goats! They were also super friendly and extremely helpful with extensive information about the local sights and happenings.
We'd definitely recommend the Red Clover Cabin to anyone who's looking to stay at a pleasant and relaxed getaway in an idyllic and verdant expanse of land.
This cabin is "just right" for the family! Off the beaten path but not too far and equipped with goats and swings to discover on the hikes you can take. Small and cozy is the cabin with plenty of great books and to my surprise, a top notch turntable set up! Thanks!
The Red Clover Cabin is a perfect little getaway. It is very cozy inside and has everything you need to feel at home. Annie and Tommie were very friendly and helpful hosts, often leaving notes for us with tips and important info. The Driftless area is a lovely part of Wisconsin, with lots of nature and organic food to enjoy. Biking, canoeing and hiking abounds. My husband and I had a great time and would recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a nice, simple, and relaxing retreat.
Annie and Tommy were fantastic hosts and the cabin was perfect! Annie responded quickly to my questions before booking and sent a great packet of information to us after booking with more details about getting around the farm and the Driftless area. Annie and Tommy were very respectful of our space and privacy while offering us great insider info about where to go and what to eat, it really made us feel like locals. These are people I would love to be friends with and I wish their farm was my own, but it felt like it was during our brief stay. We will be back for sure!
The description and the pictures of the cabin are VERY accurate. It was just as described, but better. My only concern was about the lack of A/C as we were staying during some of the hottest days of the summer, however the cabin is in the shade and by opening the windows at night and closing them during the day it never felt hot. I am a baby about being hot while trying to sleep and I was actually cool at night.
The Cabin is cozy and eclectic but also very clean.
Annie is right, if you are freaked out by bugs and being in nature this isn't the place for you, we did see bugs (nothing gross) including a very rare and beautiful Luna Moth. Even the bugs were fantastic.
My husband and I enjoyed a lovely few days at the Red Clover Cabin. Tommy and Annie were both very sweet, personable and helpful. The cabin is near their house on a lovely 80 acres with mowed paths to explore and very near Soldier's Grove (check out the Driftless Brewery there if you have a chance). The cabin had everything we needed and a very comfortable bed. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Our stay was absolutely wonderful. Annie was such an incredible host and made us feel at home. She provided us with many recommendations of things to do in the area and kept our entire family in mind (3 & 1yr old). Hiking her trails was pleasant and her love for nature is contiguous. Her beautiful cabin and land is the perfect place to go and get away. We would strongly recommend this experience.
