Recent Southwest reviews

  • Authentic and Quiet

    "Location, location, location! Looking for a place to come home to in the evening and relax and enjoy a glass of wine? This is your place. Loved staying here! Such a beautiful unique piece of heaven. If you want privacy, you will get privacy when you stay here. And if you want darkness, you'll get it (it's so beautiful to look up at the stars on a clear night). The only thing I would change would be the time of year I will go on my next trip. We like to fish and this would have been an ideal fishing spot."

  • A Beautiful Stay

    "My husband and I were looking for a weekend getaway in western Wisconsin for our "babymoon" before our first child was born. We ended up staying at Larry and Lu's and we couldn't have had a more wonderful time. The apartment is absolutely gorgeous, everything was very well-stocked, and the view out the big bay window was such a treat. Larry and Lu were very generous and attentive hosts. They invited us to come back once the baby is born and we very well might take them up on that! We loved that they were fine with us bringing our doggie, too. So many places have such strict rules about allowing children or pets and it was refreshing to deal with rentals owners who were so nice about it. The location is also ideal, as Sparta is only about an hour (at the most) within any of the best destinations in western WI."

  • Thanksgiving getaway

    "We visited Pepin to have a quiet weekend, cook our own dinner, drive to see eagles in Wabasha and visit the Museum of Marine Art in Winona...mission accomplished! We loved the space...light, bright, clean as a whistle. The kitchen was very well stocked, a delight to cook in, and there were plenty of towels and clean bedding to keep us comfy and warm. Our only suggestion to the owners: Please write down the TV use instructions....it was tough to figure out how to watch anything, and please connect the DVR...we'd brought a bunch of movies, so could not watch them. We would return!"

  • Weekend getaway to the great river road

    "My wife and I and two friends enjoyed a wonderful weekend here overlooking the Mississippi! A great house for us - the three bedrooms were perfect and having a garage was a real plus with the very cold nights we had! the house had everything we needed and was a wonderful place to relax after visiting Lacrosse and the Amish countryside! We have rented a good number of homes on the Great River Road and this one was the most comfortable with the best view we have enjoyed! Thank You!"
