De Soto house description


Voted the BEST Romantic Get-Away in Wisconsin!! New Lower nightly Rate!

Just newly restored and painted in and out!

Relive the old railroad days in this original 1954 Rail Road caboose! History at it's best!

Secluded on five acres, this caboose features a kitchen, bath, gas fireplace and a private deck with its very own hot tub!

Sit in the cupola of the caboose and read a book or scope out the wildlife from the wrap around view. We are just walking distance from a Class A trout stream. Fish or Dangle your feet in the cool flowing waters.

Ask about our Guided Caving,Kayaking, or Ice Climbing trips to add some Adventure to your get-a-way stay!

Enjoy a relaxing dinner at the best local restaurant- The Great River Roadhouse- overlooking the Mississippi River!

Sleeping is on a double futon and bunks. Will sleep up to four people (two to three adults and a child). This perfect for a couple or small family with young children.

There is NOW Cell signal at caboose- at least with Verizon.....

Check-In is 3PM, Check-out is 11AM. Weekly bookings are Friday to Friday. Reservation deposits are non-refundable. Refunds after final payments are made will only be given if we can re-book the dates that are canceled.

Pontoon Boat and Fishing boat packages on the Miss. River are also available. Ask our manager for more details.

HUGE DISCOUNT DEAL: Many guests ask for discounts for last minute bookings....sadly. most of our bookings are LAST Minute so we can not offer last minute deals BUT we are offering guests who book EARLY a deal!

Example- book 4 months early- get a 20% off deal! 3 months get 15% off, 2 months get 10% etc. Deposit MUST be paid at least the number of months ahead of time for deal to apply.
