About Barry Donovan
The Kickapoo Valley has a special place in our hearts as we grew up here and came back to raise our family in this beautiful area. We have three grown boys who love to visit and enjoy the Kickapoo Valley and all it has to offer. We love to share this unique property with family and friends and welcome you to join us too.
Barry Donovan purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Barry Donovan chose La Farge
We purchased this piece of land several years ago from friends and neighbors, and built the cabin bit by bit over the years with the help of many friends, family, and local craftsmen. We enjoy it's beauty and want to share it with you!
What makes this Cabin unique
This setting is like no other. We have a top quality trout stream steps from the front door. Abundant wildlife in every season. The views are gorgeous all around. There is nothing more relaxing than sitting on the porch, watching the wildlife, hearing the sounds of Bear Creek trickling by, enjoying a fire in the fire pit after dark, and just relaxing.

Very clean cabin. Terrific views and great check in process
Beautiful setting with a peaceful home
Bear Creek Retreat is a fantastic place. Barry came over and introduced himself. He is a great guy! Friendly and down to earth. His cabin has everything you need for a worry free and relaxing stay. It has outstanding views all around. The property is big enough to take some short walks. Bear Creek is just outside the front door and adds to the soothing sounds all around. Deer came by one morning to drink from the creek. And a pack of coyote called out to the full moon that night. The area offers local artists and bakers who sell their products from their farms. The drive throughout the area is a fun and twisty through forests and countryside. What a beautiful area! At some point we may find a place and settle down here, but until then Barry's place was like a home away from home.

Can’t wait to return!
We had a wonderful couples weekend at the Bear Creek Retreat. The cabin was absolutely perfect! We loved everything about the place, from the closeness of the creek to the outdoor shower. Barry was great to work with and even stopped by to greet us. The Bear Creek Retreat can coozies were a really nice touch.
