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.

- 1 large bedroom with 2 full futon beds and a single bed

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.
We are small business owners, musicians, and nature lovers. I (Annie) enjoy decorating and creating inviting spaces. Tommy enjoys working with wood and is building our 2nd cabin.
