                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: Our family of 6 owns & operates the vacation rental. We live 1 mile down the road. We met while serving in the US Navy and moved to Viroqua because of a business opportunity as well as the beauty of the area and it was within a 1 day drive to both sets of our parents.

                      Why the Owner Chose Viroqua:
                      We purchased the property so that we would have more pastureland for our flock of sheep and the house and location seemed ideal for a vacation home rental. Nancy grew up on a family owned & operated resort in NE WI and this is a return to her roots.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      It is set in a beautiful peaceful valley. Relax on the porch and watch the sheep graze in the pasture. Tour the area and discover the beautiful coulee region
