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.

- 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.
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.
I got sick at the last minute, but my sweetie still went to the the Red Clover Cabin and had an amazing time taking walks and cozying up. She sent me photos the whole weekend and I can't wait to get to go sometime. She also said that Tommy was very nice and helpful.
The red cover cabin was exactly what I was looking for. Two old friends and I were looking for a rustic but comfortable cabin experience in a beautiful, quiet, rural area, and this was it. The downstairs was perfect for lounging and games and conversation, and the upstairs was almost laughably perfect for us, as there was just one big room with three beds. Tommy was super hospitable and gracious (Annie was out of town while we were there), and made us feel totally at home. The trails on the land were really nice, and we loved exploring the area.
What a truly beautiful and relaxing place. We came to Red Clover Cabin to get out of Chicago and to explore some of the outdoors. This was the place for us! We really felt at home and welcomed and comfortable which is actually really remarkable when traveling with two year old twins. We made Sunday morning pancakes to a Patsy Cline record, took a hike up to a lovely lookout, picked our own apples at a small nearby orchard, napped by a big sunny window, cooked hotdogs and s'mores on a campfire, and looked up at the most amazing starry sky. Hello Milky Way! We left for home refreshed (and sad to leave!) Annie and Tommy were so easy to communicate with, helpful in their suggestions and just great hosts. We even went home with a squash grown by Annie's family. What a special place! As we drove away both of the kids looked out the windows and said "Come back sometime?" about 45 times. :) We certainly hope to.
The Red Clover was a delightful abode- small enough to bring the family together, yet designed in such a way that evoked big ideas and dreams. We especially loved dancing to the tunes via old school record player and browsing through the many thoughtfully placed books. Tommy and Annie are both warm and welcoming. The cabin is situated is quite a picturesque and well maintained property. Thank you for a lovely weekend- we wish you all the best with your future endeavors!
This place is a gem. Annie is super helpful, great to talk to, and very approachable. She gave us all the information that we needed ahead of time, in perfect detail. The cabin itself is awesome, but the entire property is incredible and many thanks to our hosts for letting us wonder around! FYI: The cabin is right next to the house, but that is no problem at all. The upstairs loft is way bigger than I thought it would be, which was nice. There were even freshly cut flowers in a vase in the main space! So sweet!! If you have never been to the Driftless Area, you need to do yourself a favor and go stay at the little red cabin. There's so much to do in such a rural area. We will be back for sure.
We absolutely loved our stay! The cabin was exactly as described- quaint and charming and perfectly furnished. Tommy was very helpful and the land was stunning. Fall is absolutely the time to visit the Driftless. The area offered plenty to do- orchards and an art fair and more. We plan to return and highly recommend staying in this endearing cabin.
What a beautiful experience! Annie was out of town, so Tommy was our host for the weekend. And what a great host he is! He greeted us on our arrival and showed us around, giving us a quick tour and then setting us loose to explore. We enjoyed spending time with the goats, hiking around the farm, enjoying the apple orchard and the fantastic views of the valley. The record player (and old records!) was a treat. The sunrise over the ridge was spectacular. If you are looking for a rustic, quiet and peaceful place, this is it.
We hope to return in the winter for another retreat!
