"My husband and I stayed in Bear's Den last September. We had a wonderful time relaxing, bird watching and fishing. It was a great find! We enjoyed getting away from the city and just enjoying nature. We were so pleased with the clean accomodations and friendly hosts, that we are booking again this year."

"This was our 1st stay at this rental property. We absolutely loved our stay at the Sunset Lodge...5+ stars!
First, the reservation process was simple and the owners (Kelly & Judy) were great with correspondence/information/driving directions.
Second, upon our arrival at the house (which happened to be late at night), we were impressed with the cleanliness and spaciousness of the house. The outdoor lighting was on & ample for us to locate the house around 11pm and gave us plenty of light for unpacking.
Third, the interior of the house was clean and had a warm "lodge" feeling. The 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room & living room were spacious & clean. The view from the dining room/living room windows can't be beat. We had the pleasure of viewing incredible sunrises & sunsets over the river each day. The yard was very well maintained, too.
Fourth, although located directly across the street from the train tracks, there was no excessive train noise. The location was great and within a few miles proximity of the Clement's Fishing Barge where we fished daily.
Fifth, we all definitely loved the fact that the house had Wi-Fi. When we have stayed in other units closer to the fishing barge, that was never an option. To have the Wi-Fi was a great benefit, especially with a teenager in tow.
And, finally, we so appreciated the graciousness of the owners. Kelly & Judy put a "welcome" bottle of wine out on the table for our arrival. And, they made sure to stop over to introduce themselves and to see if we had any questions or concerns at all with the rental.
We will definitely look into staying at Sunset Lodge again!"

"So many details are seen to in this lovely cottage. The views of the Mississippi, a lot of room to spread out. There was even room to invite additional family from Onalaska come for a cookout. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here."

"My husband and I have been to this beautiful home three times and plan to go back next year again. It is perfect for us and we love the whole area. I especially love the sunsets almost every evening. I have taken at least a dozen pictures that I
can look at all winter. The house itself is great. It is always clean and perfect. It has a fireplace for cold weather and it has an outdoor fire pit for enjoyment. The Jacuzzi is a real plus. We could even watch the sunsets from it. The kitchen is great. It has everything a cook could possible want. I did a lot of cooking and found everything I needed. The trains do pass in back of the house but we love trains and they did not bother us. In fact there was a week with few to no trains and we missed seeing them. There are three pub/restaurant within walking distance. There is a market right down the block that carries a little of everything if you forget to bring something you need. There is a dock and fishing pier down the street for fisherman. There are some good restaurants nearby. Lansing Iowa. about ten miles away has several eating places. The Great River Road House in De Soto, Wi. about 7 miles away has a great view of the Mississippi, great food and pizza. This house is just a great get away spot."
