Escape the city to our cozy and quiet waterfront retreat on the Rock River in beautiful southern Wisconsin.

Fast WiFi, well stocked kitchen and thoughtful amenities make the house an ideal romantic getaway or remote work locale. (We also endorse fully unplugging to just enjoying the views!)

Sit back and relax watching wildlife out the picture window on our private waterfront. Gas grill, fire pit, hammock on site and you can put in your kayak from our shore—or easily rent our double!

The space
Rock River Rest is a recently remodeled and professionally cleaned 1924 cozy river cottage. We aim to offer the ideal escape from everyday life: your own private riverfront (125’ direct frontage) with outdoor amenities like fire pit, gas grill and a double kayak for rent; and indoor space to relax and unwind with a good book, good coffee, vinyl records, games or movie night.

**The home is professionally cleaned between each guest following AirBnB enhanced cleaning protocols and using Branch Basics non toxic and eco-friendly cleaning products.

Enjoy a minimal, carefully curated interior with modern appliances and fast wifi. The cottage is cozy with low ceilings and 925 sq ft of living space: think of it as a step back in time or a big tiny house! We have used local Wisconsin and Midwest sourced products and furnishings (Fairbault Wool blankets, Lüsa Organics soaps, etc), as well as some fantastic vintage thrift shop finds and family treasures.

Well stocked kitchen with gas range, microwave, toaster, immersion blender, pour over coffee station and retro refrigerator. Views of the river from all rooms. Small downstairs bedroom with half bath is right off the living room and has a double bed with twin trundle as well as a small desk space. Up a short staircase is the upstairs bedroom with full bath and queen bed with our favorite new luxurious made in Chicago natural latex mattress.

We are child friendly and have a few special kid amenities, like the toy/book/game corner in the downstairs closet, as well as a Pack N Play children’s cot available.

This location is special in that you feel somewhat remote, yet are only a 5 minute drive to a few local restaurants, busy Lake Koshkonong and Interstate I-90; and approximately 30 minutes from Madison, 60 min from Milwaukee or 2 hrs from Chicago.

Only 5 minute drive from Lake Koshkonong, a 10,000 acre lake perfect for fishing and water activities, and 2 minute drive from the free public boat launch. Or paddle to the lake easily by putting in your kayak or canoe at our shoreline (or ask us about renting one nearby or using our Perception Aurora tandem kayak). Please note, on summer weekends our shoreline does get busy with boat/skiing traffic going by on the way to Lake Koshkonong.

Hello/Hallo/Hej! I have been using AirBnB as a guest since 2011 and am now in my fifth year as a Superhost. We host guests at Sierra Hygge Haus, our Aframe home in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains of California; and at Rock River Rest, a riverside retreat in southern Wisconsin near our hometown and where our family all still live. Both homes are designed as couples, small family or artist retreats—the peaceful escape from city life we always yearn for (especially now with small children who need space to run and be wild and free). We've designed our homes as places to seek and experience "coziness and comfort...contentment and well-being," or as many Scandinavians simply call it, hygge. Our Sierra Hygge Haus cabin is a great launch pad for adventures in the Sierras and the beautiful nearby small towns. It also functions well as a retreat of its own, a shelter in which to cozy up and find relaxation in the woods. Rock River Rest, our home newly renovated in 2020, is designed with the same Hygge culture in mind (and fast WiFi for optimal working/schooling from home). It is a fantastic spot for enjoying Wisconsin water activities on the river and nearby Lake Koshkonong! My husband would tell you what makes me happy are mountains and foreign people. These homes merges my passion for both as we are able to host guests from around the world! One might say this passion is engrained, as my mother hosted a B&B in the upstairs of our rural farmhouse-modeled in the simple home stays she experienced backpacking through Europe in the 1970s. It was a memorable part of my childhood, during which I met fantastic guests and learned the art of generous hospitality from my mother. We've arranged our homes with this in mind, and hope that you enjoy your stay.
