Why Peg chose New Glarus

This property was purchased in the 1990's, during which time it was an active dairy farm and sheep operation. The dairy herd was sold in 2002 and the sheep in 2008. The crop land remains in active production.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house is the perfect environment for relaxing and developing one's creativity. It is a peaceful property offering opportunities for being close to nature as you take a stroll in the woods or read and have a cup of tea on the patio. Family and friends find it perfect for long weekends and the biking community has embraced it being close to the Sugar River Bike Trail system.

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5

We had our annual Girl's Weekend at this property and it was fabulous! The property is beautiful, well kept and very peaceful! The whole house was very clean, well designed, and we felt like we were at home. If anyone has a craft project or group that needs room and likes the country, this is the place! We were very close to all the attractions in the area without being "too close". Plus, the owners could not have been nicer!! I strongly recommend this house for anyone who wants to visit the beautiful area.

Perfect for families, too!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one night with our friends (we both had babies at the time) and it was perfect for us. The owner was wonderful, and the house, both inside and out, had great spaces for us to relax and enjoy our time together. We were able to put the babies to bed and relax outside on the porch...just perfect for families!

Adorable farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our group! It was adorable and had everything we needed. Set it a very beautiful farm area with hills and pastures and woods - we went for many walks and enjoyed the natural landscape. The house has nice big tables for groups to get together and chat and play games (house is geared towards quilters and scrapbookers). The kitchen was great and we were able to bring our own food and cook everything there which saved us money and gave us more quality time together. Everything was clean, well displayed and organized. The owner was very friendly and willing to answer questions and confirmed everything in a timely manner. We had a great time!
