"I have never stayed at this cottage but I know exactly where it's located along the beautiful Mississippi River. I've read all the reviews, viewed the photos and I would say this place is a hidden gem for vacationers. I was born and raised in La Crosse, now live in Onalaska, Wisconsin and literally about a 20 minute drive away but I would seriously consider renting this for a romantic couples weekend away with my husband. The place looks beautiful and the rates are fantastic! I'd rather stay here than in a hotel if I were coming to the La Crosse area!"

"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."

"My wife and I have stayed at several VRBO rentals over the years, and this place is one of the nicest. The cabin is spotless and well equipped. We brought our black lab Mackie who had a wonderful time swimming, fetching, chasing squirrels, and even playing with the owner's black lab one day. Not many places will accept pets these days, so we were fortunate to find this place. It is also very close to where my daughter lives, so we got to spend some time with her. I caught a nice 31" blue catfish our first night there, and missed several others. We had several campfires down by the river while fishing at the same time. There are tons of places to go and things to do in the area. Also good places to eat such as Red Pines on Lake Onalaska and the Hungry Point Bar and Trempealeau Hotel in Trempealeau (8 miles away). The only thing that is not obvious from the pics and description is the hill down to the river is bigger than it looks. You will get a bit of a workout going back and forth, which is a good thing. It's a great place and we had a great time. Will definitely go back."

"This cabin is NICE! My wife and I were looking for a weekend get away, didn't want to drive to far from home, this was perfect. The cabin is very comfortable, and to our suprise it came with everything a person would need to cook their own meals. We enjoyed the very relaxing hot tub, and the sauna was very nice also. They provide towels and robes, which was a pleasent surprise. We will be back again, hopefully to make this a yearly get away. The fresh coffee beans was also a great morning find! Only thing I wish I would of brought was a radio to listen to some music while relaxing in the hot tub. Overall this was the nicest cabin my wife and I have rented in the area."
