About the Owner

Dave and I live in Holmen, WI where Dave is the Executive Pastor at First Free Church in Onalaska. We are both from Black River Falls but have lived throughout the US and England. My dad gave me the cabin property 38 years ago. We used the cabin as our main residence for 2 6-month stretches in the past couple years until we found a house to buy. I actually loved living there. It slows you down. Something really needed in today's world.

Relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a quiet retreat at your cabin. It was well-stocked with everything we needed, down to muffin tins. We ate all meals in the enclosed porch--enjoying the view and temps. Our dogs loved the pond. We had a lot of fun watching them swim for hours. We also took them for walks down the road & did some hiking at Black River Falls. Thanks for the nice getaway.

This is great cottage in a tremendous location

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place we could get away from everything and recharge our batteries. We lived on the screened porch most of the time. Ate breakfast, lunch and dinner out there. Had a deer checking up on us every night.Took the dogs swimming in the pond. The living room was comfortable for reading and watched a couple movies at night. Great kitchen for home cooked meals. The personal touches made us feel at home. Not a better place for a camp fire. We will definitely go back.

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is so cool and Peg is a wonderful host. Whenever I tell people that we were able to honeymoon at an Amish cabin on 40 acres with a private, aerated swimming pond they are blown away and can't believe we found this gem. The cabin is far more than you'd ever expect it to be - extremely clean, updated yet still rustic, and totally private. We had a fantastic time swimming, lounging by the water, letting our dog run himself silly, and basking in the glow of a campfire at night. I'm not sure how, but we didn't get a single mosquito bite the four days that we were there which is nothing short of magic. Peg gave us directions on how to let ourselves in and was available to help by request but didn't impede our stay or privacy at all. If you have the chance to rent this cabin, do it! It has everything you would ever want, we really appreciated the microwave and coffeemaker, and is the perfect getaway for a couple or a decent sized group. Everything is sized just right.

Beautiful, serene getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with our entire experience at this property. We were greeted by one of the property owners when we arrived and were given a short tour/explanation of the property. It was great to get an overview of where we were staying. The cabin was beautiful, very clean and well kept up. We enjoyed watching movies and lighting a fire in the wood stove to keep us warm. The pond was also beautiful and provided a chance for my husband to try his hand at catching a few bluegills. We enjoyed the sounds of wildlife and even saw a few turkeys come near the lake during one evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet, beautiful place to get away from the daily stresses of life!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at this Little Cabin in the Big Woods! Our kids, age 3 & 4, thought the loft was "magical." They enjoyed our time spent hiking in the woods across the street, at nearby Black River State Forest and playing in the sand at the beach. We also liked seeing turkey, deer and blue jays. Our son cried when we had to leave, saying "I want to be at the cabin now!" We felt the same.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful retreat with us! We hope to come back next year!

Family weekend

This cabin is absolutely gorgeous. We were visiting our son at college and found this place to hang out. I strongly recommend renting this. The owners are amazing and we had the greatest time.

My dad purchased the property about 50 years ago. He had a Christmas tree farm nearby and built a beautiful home that you see pictured in the cabin. We hope to keep the property in our family as we all love vacationing there because it is so private.

Amenities

From the Owner

Privacy! Comfort and quiet with a tiny sense of roughing it as the nearest convenience store is still a 4-mile drive. The pond is this great big natural swimming pool that cools you off and is always fun to watch as you rest or eat on the front porch. The night skies, because there are no city lights or other residences nearby, are fantastic.
