Bedrooms 1
Space 800 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

A Rustic, Peaceful Getaway in the Heart of Wisconsin's Fox Valley

The cabin sits amid 160 acres of beautiful protected wildlife habitat. The property includes an 1800s-era farmhouse, barn, and blacksmith shop, a host of wild and domestic animals, miles of private canal with access to the Wolf and Fox Rivers, a 4200 sq ft garden, a 1-mile hiking loop, and a small orchard. The farm has been the pride of our family for 6 generations.

A converted granary, the cabin has 2 floors, a kitchen, full bathroom, Wifi, smart-TV, heat, air conditioning, one queen bed, and one queen pullout bed.

Rusty Buckets is centrally located in Wisconsin's Fox Valley but feels extremely secluded -- this balance of natural beauty, privacy, and convenience makes our location truly special. We also boast a rich natural history. You may uncover a real arrowhead, 19th-century farm-equipment, or an animal you've never seen before. Just look around!

So writers, readers, photographers, retreaters;

couples, lovers, and friends;

adventurers, budget vacationers;

festival-goers and business travelers;

outdoors-people, nature-lovers;

foodies, hipsters;

snowbirds and empty-nesters:

This place is for you!

Note that although quaint and comfortable, this is still an active farm. You will hear dogs barking, horses neighing, cows mooing, and chickens squawking.

Perfect place to recharge

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed the property immensely. The seclusion and tranquility were perfect. My dog made himself at home, roaming around the farm and making friends with the wildlife. My only complaint is that I did not stay longer. I guess that means I will have to visit again.

Trevor was an excellent host and was easily accessible if needed.
