Property description

The Little Sugar River Farm is a vacation rental close to two bike trails. The farm is secluded, surrounded by 2000 acres of wildlife refuge, and ideal for people who want to bike, hike, run, bird, read, and relax.

The guesthouse is less than a quarter of a mile from the 23-mile Sugar River Trail, and five miles from the Badger State Trail. Both trails wind along rivers, through rolling hills, forests, and wildlife areas. Trek hybrid bikes are available for guests to borrow (no charge).

Hiking, biking, simply relaxing on the back porch watching the cranes and listening to the owls and whip-poor-wills are some of the best ways to spend one's time here. Winter stays offer the possibility of ice skating on our skating pond, cross-country skiing on nearby groomed trails, snow shoeing in the prairies behind the house, or simply relaxing by the wood stove with a good book.

MONEY BACK GUARANTEE: We do not want to take our guests' money if they are not satisfied with what we have to offer. Should you decide that the Little Sugar River Farm is not meeting your needs or expectations, we will bill you only for the nights you have stayed and refund the balance of your rent.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My name is Frank Goodman, builder and owner of the Little Sugar River Farm. I was born in New York City in December 1959, and I grew up in suburban Westchester County. When I was 14, I went away to school at Phillips Academy in Andover MA. From there, I went to Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, where I studied French and Spanish. During my senior year, I spent a good deal of time in the wood shop developing skills which would stand me in good stead when it came time to create my home — the Little Sugar River Farm. After a year working on a farm in Mexico, I came to the Midwest in 1987 to study agricultural sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I never left. Most of my work since that time has been in either agriculture or in the metal working trades.

Why the Owner Chose New Glarus:
Southern Wisconsin is a lovely area--close to interesting cities and towns, but peaceful and beautiful. Because I had always hoped to lead a rural life in a home of my own making, in 1996 I purchased 20 acres of land 30 miles south of Madison. I set out to build my home and create a small organic farm. The area near the farm is filled with interesting villages, wonderful bike trails, protected wildlife lands, and excellent restaurants. New Glarus is a fascinating Swiss village, and Madison is a vibrant, lively university city.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Hiking, biking, eating home-grown vegetables and berries, picking flowers from the gardens, simply relaxing on the back porch watching the cranes and listening to the owls and whip-poor-wills are some of the best ways to spend one's time here. Winter stays offer the possibility of ice skating on our skating pond, cross-country skiing on nearby groomed trails, snow shoeing in the prairies behind the house, or simply relaxing by the wood stove with a good book.
