A private space.

Guest access

50 acres. You are encouraged to check out the land. Steve has done a lot of work here in getting rid of invasive plants while encouraging native plants. Be sure to step into the big bluestem field to get a sense of what it was like here a 100 years ago.

We enjoyed the beautiful property and the peacefulness. The internet was a little spotty. But for peace & quiet this is the place to go!

We loved staying with April and Steve. The location was beautiful and very picturesque. They were very friendly and helpful. They showed us around the farm when they had a chance and it felt like a very personal experience. We loved exploring the property. We didn’t leave once we got there. Bring good hiking boots and clothes if you want to get the most out of your stay as the best spots are only accessible by hiking through high prairie. The house is roomy and full of light and could comfortable host quite a few people. The kitchen is well equipped but plan to bring groceries when you arrive as the nearest grocery store is a number of miles away.

Quiet and peaceful country setting, spacious home, short drive (about 20 minutes) to New Glarus town and brewery. Hiking and biking trails in the area. The farm itself is an interesting place with the native plants and Heirloom hog farming. April and Steve are friendly hosts, we enjoyed talking with them.

This is a wonderful location if you're looking to get away from it all. You wake in the morning to a view of a rolling prairie/pasture and the sounds of birds- the view from the main bedroom is just extraordinary. I got to see the new litter of baby pigs, was treated to fresh eggs for breakfast and got to check out the wildflowers allover the property. April & Steve were very friendly and accommodating. Internet connection was a bit dicey, and my phone provider (sprint) rarely worked in the entire 'driftless' region-- which was an issue since I was traveling for work, but again, if you truly want to get away from it all- this is the place to do it! Within an easy drive from quite a few fun, quaint little towns with plenty of stuff to do! Great for the nature/outdoor lover.

A food, and nature lover. I am an organic veggie farmer that is slowly moving into the animal world of farming. Food and health are on the top of my list. I believe food has the power to heal and connect us. You are what you eat; what did you have for breakfast?

My partner is a prairie restorationist, passionately pouring energy into balancing the natural world. He combats invasives like garlic mustard and multi flora rose and spends time planting natives seeds. When there is time to fly fish the magical streams that are in abundance in this neck of the woods he does so.

We try to live lite on this space that we live. Heating our home with renewables, eating from our garden and neighbors gardens, and raising animal with love and courage. Our "Big Screen" is the window that faces the valley full of natures offering, and the night sky that offers amazing shows. Never a rerun here.

We enjoy bluegrass, blues, folk music and listen to public radio. We live a full life spending much of our time right here in our little paradise.
