The perfect group getaway

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautifully appointed bungalow, nestled in a quiet town in a scenic area of southern Wisconsin. Since I am familiar with this area I would not describe it as a "dying town" but yes, it is quiet. So if you are looking for nightlife it's probably not the destination for you.

But if you are looking to get away from a busy area (like Chicago in our case), the River Cottage is the perfect place to host friends and/or family for a restful vacation. We (5 adults) came here for a birthday celebration and some of our relatives were able to stay at Albany House across the street, which worked out perfectly. We had no trouble preparing and serving meals for everyone. The owners are very accommodating.

We mostly stayed on the property, but we did make some field trips to buy locally made/grown cheese, beer and produce. And we stopped on our drive up to get groceries, so we were all set. We all thought that the amenities in the house (and the grill outside) were exactly what we needed.

Did I mention how beautiful the house is? It's like something from a spread in House Beautiful magazine. And so comfortable!

I can't wait to find a new reason to return.

Beautiful vacation home in a dying town.

  • 4 of 5
This home is stunningly renovated, appointed & furnished... except for some key smaller elements. Everything you could want in a vacation home... except for the kitchen amenities, home entertainment & the town in which it is located. The kitchen is tiny, poorly laid out, contains no counter space, a tiny stove & woefully inadequate cooking & baking tools. The owner isn't prepared for guests to actually cook multiple meals here despite the fact that there are no restaurants or grocery stores. There are no wine glasses, blender, electric mixer, pasta pot, larger serving bowls, plastic wrap, foil, basic spices, sugar, salt & pepper, casserole dishes, cookie sheet or 2-3 quart sauce pot to name a few missing items. There is also no radio, stereo or WI FI or internet connection. There were no kleenex, paper towels or napkins. On the plus side the house is sumptuous inside & out with excellent linens, furnishings, a delightful patio & all season front porch & a master suite & first floor tub room to die for. There is NO entertainment in Albany itself & New Glarus is 15-20 minutes away. We canoed a lovely stretch of the Sugar River & there is a bike trail in town that charges a fee for use. So keep these things in mind. The owners also have a fantastic B&B across the street, the Albany House. Both this property & the Albany House would be much more attractive in an area with greater immediate access to activities.
