About Joel & Jenny Goede
Joel & Jenny Goede have 3 children and live just a few miles down the road from Romance. Joel and his father run an organic family farm and raise laying hens and pigs. They also have beef cows, miniature horses and other farm animals. Joel & Jenny purchased the Romance Valley Retreat in 2013 to give the farming operation a little more organic land to farm and to share this great place with others.

Why Joel & Jenny Goede chose Genoa
This property is special for many reasons. The first would be the great scenery. You don't have to look long to spot a flock of turkeys, a herd of deer or a bald eagle flying about. High ridge tops and a great stream or river at the bottom of every valley. Most people born in this area never leave! The farm also has great opportunities for hunting and other outdoor activites. Whether you like four-wheeling or snowmobiling, skiing or hiking, this farm accomodates all. There is a great viewing room that sits on top of a barn silo that offers a spectacular view of the valley. This property also is great for family events. We have hosted many graduations,family reunions and large groups on weekend getaways. The 2000 Sq ft heated shed is free to use for any of these events. We have tables and chairs for about 100 people. If you need more we can help you with renting tables and chairs along with tents and other party supplies.The shed offers a concrete floor and great lighting right next to the trout stream. The shed also is a good place for the kids to play in on rainy days.
What makes this House unique
Ask about the opportunity to tour our family farm. Joel, Jenny and the rest of the Goede Family welcomes you to the Goede Acres farm tour. The tour can range from a short look around the farm to an all day in-depth experience! We will talk about everything that has to do with modern organic farming. We will look at the equipment used along with what we feed our animals to keep them healthy and comfortable. This isn't a hobby farm. It is a productive family farm with 10,000 laying hens, about 35 sows and all of their babies. We also have herd of beef cows that graze pasture and miniature horses to pet. If you are interested in learning exactly where your food comes from and how it is grown, this tour is a must. If you want to, you are welcome to help the family pick the eggs or feed the sows. Maybe if you're lucky you'll be able to see first hand the birth of a dozen piglets from one sow. There is an additional fee for the farm tour. Please contact us to learn more.

What a great place! Joel & Jenny are fantastic hosts, and I don’t think there’s a prettier valley on earth than the one Romance Valley Retreat sits in. Accommodations were everything as promised and more. 75 yard walk to brook trout in Cox Creek! Book it ... you won’t be disappointed.
Relaxing Vacation Home
Romance Valley Retreat was located in a quiet beautiful location. Check in was super easy, place was super clean and well stock with all the supplies we needed. We made plenty of use out of the hot tub and pool table. The sofas were very comfy for lounging! Our dogs loved exploring the woods area around the house.
Great property, thanks for ordering the amazing weather. Loved the stay.
Second time staying here for our family Christmas. Always clean and comfortable. It can be hard to find if you come after dark, you can easily miss the driveway. We will definately be coming back.
Couldn't have asked for a better place to get together with family. Great memories made! We've already recommended to several friends!
Access to great trout fishing on Bad Axe River. Mississippi River just minutes away. Snowmobile trail within half mile of house. Great opportunity for big game hunting as well as small game. Canoe the Bad Axe, just minutes away, or drive to the Kickapoo River for more canoe options. Each February, down-hill ski jumpers from around the globe come to Westby to compete. Every August Viroqua offers family friendly entertainment with Wild West Days. The Viroqua Farmers Market is open May thru September. The Driftless Region is home to many Amish settlements. Spend the day driving along country roads and exploring the simple life!
