Caballete Retreat ~ About us:
Owned by Dan & Sara Scholze, and managed by Sara, Caballete Retreat (Caballete is Spanish for 'ridge') is large enough to accommodate up to eight (8) guests comfortably. The Valley and Ridges Surrounding have been kept in the family for several generations. Caballete Retreat is a 'Home' more so than a Cabin or Retreat and was lived in full time up until the Fall of 2005.

A Secluded, Private, Ridge Retreat
Need to Relax? You've picked the right place. Nestled into the Ridges, this Retreat offers a secluded, very quiet and private get-away. Wildlife abounds with birds, squirrels, deer, turkey, and you might even see the elusive red fox, or a Big Buck just yards from the home.

~Hiking the Ridges is allowed, but please obey all No Trespassing Signs, as we want to respect the neighbors land.

~There is a Beautiful Library with a two story wall filled with shelves of books, photos, and other unique items. Another Highlight is the Sunken Den with a Stone Floor made of Actual Stones dug from the area, and a beautiful Wood Floor. One final special room is the Music Room, where a Large Piano (and it's tuned!) awaits the right person to make some beautiful relaxing music.

Everything but your Food & Drink....

~All Linens (Sheets), Towels, Hand Towels, and Wash Cloths are provided at NO extra charge. There are dishes available and a few pots and pans for cooking. All we ask is you treat them as your own, and please leave for the next guests to enjoy.

~No Food or Drink is provided, other than the fresh spring water from the well. Local phone service and local TV Channels are provided along with DSL Wireless Internet.

~Outside there are Three multi-level Decks, with a Weber grill awaiting some juicy Steaks (Charcoal included)! A stone camp fire pit can be found with plenty of room to relax around the fire or lay in the hammock. Once again, all the wood provided.

Why the Owner Chose Black River Falls, WI, USA:
The area has been in my family for generations, and we enjoy sharing the home with our guests.It truely is a peaceful retreat.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will enjoy the secluded setting with the ridge above you. You can wake up to the sound of singing birds and enjoy viewing them from the windows. Many times you will see deer, in the spring they have the fawns out, which is special. Setting around the fire pit together is always enjoyable. Its quite and peaceful.
