Overview

About the property

Secluded 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Along The Bad Axe River With Breathtaking Views

The Serendipity Cabin is nestled in the center of the Ocooch Mountain Range which is also known as Driftless Wisconsin. Sit outside on the raised porch and enjoy nature at its absolute best. You will hear the ripple of the Bad Axe River as it beckons the many woodland creatures down for a cool drink. Anglers from across the Country have come to Vernon County to test their skills in many of the area’s top producing trout streams. The Bad Axe River runs alongside the cabin and is accessible at the bottom of the hill.

This cabin is ideal for two couples traveling together who like their privacy as it has a bathroom upstairs and downstairs. There is also a small bar area on the lower level which includes a sink, coffee pot, electric tea kettle and a refrigerator.

The closest restaurant is the Norwegian Hollow Hideaway Bar and Grill which is a short drive from the cabin. They have a full bar and offer a variety of appetizers which include fried cheese curds (my personal favorite), burgers, pizza on Wednesdays and Friday night fish. Enjoy a cold one on the outside deck while the cows graze below. You will love this place.

The Driftless Wisconsin area is just south of Lacrosse and half way between Chicago and Minneapolis. It is only a half day drive from many of the cities in Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, and Iowa. You will enjoy the breathtaking scenic drives along the Mississippi River, the Wisconsin River, and the Kickapoo River.

Check-in is after 4:00 p.m. and check-out is at 11:00 a.m. If you need an early check-in or late check-out please ask. We will be happy to accommodate as the schedule permits. There is a 3 NIGHT MINIMUM - NOT NEGOTIABLE.

The cabin's maximum capacity is 6 adults and 2 children. If you do not abide by this rule, you will be in violation of the contract. If we discover there are more than 6 adults staying at the cabin without prior approval, you will be asked to leave. Thank you for understanding that this rule is in place for a reason.

We are certain you will love this place almost as much as we do.

VERY IMPORTANT: There is a steep driveway. The drive will be plowed after snow; however, it is necessary to have a 4 wheel drive vehicle if you will be staying during the winter months.

About Momi Malspeis

I was born in Viroqua, Wisconsin, and currently live in Northeast Florida with my daughter. I only spent 6 years of my childhood living in Viroqua because my dad was in the US Navy. After retirement, my parents moved back to Nottingham Ridge in Viroqua. Their farm is just up the hill from my kitchen window at the cabin.

Momi Malspeis purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Momi Malspeis chose De Soto

This 20 acre piece of land has been in my family for many years. My grandparents lived in a mobile home at the bottom of the hill (near the bridge) during the 1970's. I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase it from my parents in December of 2011. The cabin (which was built off site) was moved to its current location in July of 2012, and is dedicated to the beautiful memory of my late husband, Chuck Malspeis.

What makes this cabin unique

This property is secluded and peaceful.

We had an absolutely wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We are three childhood buddies and our spouses that take a trip each year to a different location in the state. I always wanted to get back to the Viroqua area after attending a year of college at UW-LaCrosse.

The property is even better than it is described. Warm, inviting with all of the comforts of home but with a rustic feel. Actually with the weather being a little wet, it gave us the opportunity to spend more time in the house and it was well worth it.

We did visit the goat farm, milked a goat, brought some milk back and the ladies made goat cheese. We spent time traveling the countryside, hiking at Wildcat Mountain State Park, shopping in Cashton, Westby, and Viroqua, and marveling at the speed of the Amish horses pulling carriages alongside the road. At the end of the day we had a wonderful place to return to and call home. The location and the VRBO home made this our best trip yet!

Great secluded home base in the hills and valleys of the Driftless region

  • 5 of 5

We're a group of 3 best friends that have been taking Wisconsin motorcycle trips the past 25+ years and we think we found the best cabin/house yet! This is approx a 5 year old house that is spotless located at the center of some of the best roads in the midwest. There are 3 levels so we all had our privacy along with plenty of common space. The outdoor fire pit was well stocked and a must for nightly wrenching and entertaining. We will definitely be coming back!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Was very clean and inviting on arrival. Great fishing at the end of the drive and permission was easily obtained from the adjoining landowners on the Bad Axe River. Will definitely be returning for another relaxing weekend!

Tranquil beauty

My family enjoyed our second visit to this well appointed home in the hollows near Viroqua. Hiked great trails nearby and enjoyed great local food. Thanks for a fine place to have a quiet reunion. Hope to return.
