Property description

Enjoy the privacy of the outdoors and be close to La Crosse for convenience! Here you can 'get away' from the world and enjoy the cozy and secluded comfort of the country. This is the last house in the valley and offers a serene view of the coulee. Deer and turkey will find their way to the field below the house and you will have the perfect sitting area to watch them feed and play.

In the winter, pack your cold weather wear and go for a walk along the creek or up the logging trail for a view of the coulee below. Bring your snowshoes for a winter walk. Or if you prefer, go sledding on the hill in front of the house. (sleds provided). What ever you choose to do, even if you stay indoors, you will enjoy the serenity of the valley.

If you like to ski, we are located just a few minutes from Mt. La Crosse.

If you are snowmobilers, the state trail is located less than a mile from the house and you can drive your snowmobile to the trail or drive your trailer to the trail, park and hop on from there.

Coming in 2015...we will have a scenic cross-country ski trail, that will be a one mile loop.
In warmer weather, you can enjoy walks along the creek looking for fish and beavers or take a walk up the logging trail and see if you can spot a deer or other wildlife. Pack a picnic lunch and sit down by the creek and enjoy the sounds of water flowing over the rocks and the other sounds of nature.

At night, sit around the fire pit and share stories with friends and family or snuggle up together and fall asleep under the stars.

If you want to venture out, Coon Valley, Westby and Viroqua are just a few miles away and offer various fun activities, dining and unique shopping. Or if you are looking for a drive and shopping through Amish country you are close to that as well. La Crosse also offers a wide array of dining venues, theatre, live music, art galleries and bars.

We are excited to announce that we are in the process of adding a new Bedroom and a good sized beautiful new bathroom in the lower level. The Total for our home will 5 Bedrooms with 2 King and 3 queen beds. The bathroom total will be 3, one in the master bedroom and upper level and the third large new beautiful bath in the lower level. We expect we will have our project complete by April 1st if not before. If you are planning a larger group in March give us a call and we will update you on the progress as the project could be complete by early March. Thank you Jerry and Joan

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Joan and Jerry are local to the area and recently purchased the house and 10 acres with is attached to the family's original 100 acres of land. The property is will be drawn to look out the windows at the view! Being new owners...we are committed to making this a gem of a destination! We personally take each stay seriously and our goal is to make it the best experience possible for you.

Why the Owner Chose La Crosse:
This property is located on Joan's original family homestead. Joan's great, great grandparents came to Wisconsin from Germany and moved into Chipmunk Coulee in the late 1800's. Her Great Grandparents farmed this land and lived in the coulee, raising 7 sons. The historic hay barn that is located next to the house was built by her great grandfather and a neighbor in the early 1900's. The 10 acres of property were originally part of the family land and we are happy it can stay in the family. This land has been in the family for years and has provided us all with a lifetime of memories! We look forward to sharing the magic of Chipmunk Coulee with you!

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
What is unique is that our last name is Unser, which in German means 'our'. We hope you enjoy staying at Unser Haus! (our house)
