A private road leads to this beautiful country manor where peace and quiet abound. Located among a large Amish community, the house is nestled on 85 acres of woods and pasture with hiking trails, biking trails, fishing hole and wildlife viewing.
Perfect for a family, group, wedding or a retreat vacation. There are six bedrooms, three large full baths and loads of room in this 4200 square foot manor. There are two over-sized bedrooms with king beds; four bedrooms with queen beds; and three queen size convertible beds that are very comfortable. We also have a daybed and two queen size blow up mattresses available for large groups. There are 6 private bedrooms in the house, however, one of the bedrooms is accessible only through another room.
New Haven is a nature lover's paradise. You can go bird watching (eagles, hawks, cardinals, etc), deer watching, bunnies galore, mushroom hunting, ginseng hunting, or just relax on the front porch listening to the frogs and Amish buggies in the distance. You could also pick your own apples off our private apple trees and bake a fresh apple pie in New Haven's extra large kitchen.
There's plenty of hiking and playing room too. You can play Bocce ball on the front lawn, hillbilly golf or have a picnic in the fields.
Within minutes you could be on the Sparta Elroy bike trail, canoeing down the Kickapoo River, horseback riding, or enjoying Wildcat State Park. Many motorcycle enthusiasts enjoy the famed rural roads of the area, including those at Wildcat State Park. Fort McCoy offers paintball and laser tag and in winter they offer skiing and tubing hills. Skiing and snowboarding is also available at Mount LaCrosse Ski Area. Snowmobile enthusiasts can enjoy the many snowmobile trails in the area.

Our stay here was wonderful! Communication was clear and concise. Everything was nice and clean! Amy was wonderful host. Would definitely stay here again! Thank you so much for everything Amy! Sincerely Darikhia & her friends!
There were 3 generations that gathered at this beautiful spot to celebrate our mother's 80th birthday!
All the cousins claimed the huge room, with beds and sectional couches, above the garage as "the clubhouse" and played cards into the night and we couldn't hear them!
Just a short drive to the bike trail, so we all biked, age 11-80, then the next day we went right down the road to canoe the Kickapoo River. The house has plenty of room, many people to help in the kitchen and sitting areas. The bathrooms were updated and big. The views out the windows to see the cows and calves were great, peaceful mornings, just the birds and mooing!
We LOVED our stay at New Haven!
The owner was easy to contact and answered our questions before our arrival.
This charming country house made an idyllic retreat for our three-generation family group. The rolling green expanse from every window made us feel as if we were in Tolkien's Shire.
The layout was comfortable for our large group but also afforded quiet and private spaces. There were so many sleeping options that we were able to find a perfect fit for every age! The bedrooms and linens were fresh and comfortable along with three updated bathrooms. Thanks to the responsive owner for her help!
New Haven Getaway
Great place to stay!! The house is very spacious with plenty of areas to sit and relax and have fun with friends and lots of beds! I would love to go back in the summer months when I could enjoy the state park nearby, some kayaking on the Kickapoo River, the bike trails and visit some of the Amish places. All these things are relatively close to the property, and yet the property is set in the country with no neighbors around you!
Memorial Day Family Weekend Getaway and We loved it!
I don't know where to begin! It is an absolutely perfect retreat. When all of us first walked in we were struck by the charm. We explored every room and couldn't help but feel happy! It was so cozy and relaxing. The setting is amazing as we were able to enjoy the peacefulness relax and enjoy time outdoors, this is the place.
I'm a first time user of Vrbo. After narrowing my search I decided to contact the property owner. She's exceptionally kind and answered my questions on the property, location and area activities. After booking, we were so excited to enjoy our time in the country. In arriving to the property, it’s clear home much love and attention is put into this home. It feels so warm and welcoming – our friends and family immediately settled in .
The home is beautifully constructed very comfortable beds nice high vaulted ceilings.And the kitchen…whether experienced or novice, any cook will love all the amenities and accessories. The property is equally as wonderful as the home and combines open space with wooded landscape, and a bubbling trout stream. I can confidently say it feels like a little slice of Heaven!
If you are looking for an escape from hectic life happenings and want to enjoy peace and quiet this is definitely the place for you!
The owner is absolutely wonderful and you can tell they go above and beyond to make your visit the best you have ever had!
Thank you! This was just what our family and friends needed. The kids were outside every day, exploring the property and enjoying the stream. We will definitely come be back!
Nice touch with the furniture and old telephones
More space than we knew what to do with
It was a pleasure to set this up with the owner
We will definitely be interested next time our team is our this area
