4 Bedroom fully remodeled Farmhouse on 117acre Organic Farm - Full of old Charm
About Chad Williams
Hello, Visitors! I'm Chad Williams, a 38 year old, self employed Landscaping/Excavating Contractor. I have been in business for myself for 18 years. I have lived in the Viroqua area my whole life. I have four wonderful little boys, Carter, Conner, Carson, and Caden; along with their wonderful mother, Kristi. It was my childhood dream to own the farm that Ridge Top Hideaway is located on. I worked on this farm since I was 10 years old, milking, haying, and brush hogging. In 2013, my childhood dream came true and I was able to purchase the property. I have hope that you all will enjoy this farm as much as my family and I do.
Chad Williams purchased this Farmhouse in 2013

Peaceful holiday on the farm
We had a very peaceful few days on the farm. Chad was super nice and got us out to the property. The farmhouse is lovely and well stocked with kitchen utensils and plates and towels. The property is fantastic with tons of beautiful trails and a fire pit. We can’t wait to come back next fall!
We loved the farm and plan on trying to stay here next time we had a fantastic stay
This property is peaceful and beautiful. Everything is well taken care of and it has a bunch of charm! Definitely book this farmhouse if you are looking for a place to get away from it all but close enough to town if need be. You can't help but feel at peace in this wonderful home and land.
Quiet, secluded, and perfect getaway
This was easily one of the best experiences I have had renting a property. It was exactly as advertised with a beautiful farmhouse sitting back in a secluded lot with access to a huge wooded area with walking paths. Plenty of farm buildings to explore and a huge property to walk around and enjoy. The home is perfect, clean, and nicely furnished and stocked with everything we needed to stay in and cook meals. The rooms were cozy and comfy, and the backyard fire pit and patios were wonderful to sit around with friends and marvel over the incredible night sky.
I would recommend this to anyone seeking a quiet weekend or a nice secluded getaway with family and friends. We will be returning for sure.
Everything we hoped for
beautiful, close to town, but definitely in the country. everything we hoped for!
The Viroqua, Vernon County, area (also known as the Driftless Region) has much to offer. Just about every weekend, within a 45 minute drive from our location, there is a festival of some sort going on. Some examples are: Moral Mushroom Festival, Butterfest, Applefest, Cranberry Fest, Fall Fest, Wild West Days, Vernon County Fair, Westby Ski Jump, and that just names a few. We would be more than happy to provide you with a full list of events and theme dates. If wine is your thing, we have local wineries that offer tasting rooms and tours. The outdoor farmers market is always popular. It runs every Saturday from 8am-12pm, May through October. After the market, you can have lunch at one of Viroqua's fine restaurants: Dave's Pizza, Viking Inn, Blackhawk Grill, Driftless Cafe and the Viroqua Food Coop to name a few. We are in the heart of Amish country, so drive down just about any country road and you can find small road stands where you can purchase furniture, produce, and baked goods, all made by local amish. If you are up for a great evening meal, be sure to check out some of the area's fine dining: Old Towne Inn, Viking Inn, Kickapoo Inn, and my personal favorite, The Driftless Cafe where the Tenderloin Steak is to die for (along with everything else on their menu!) Chef Luke Zahm prides himself on using all local & organic ingredients. You will not be disappointed. Did someone say fishing? We have a few small lakes, the Mississippi (30 miles), and some of the best trout streams in the nation. This area was named in the top 5 in the nation in Trout Fishing Magazine. Hunting your thing? There are a lot of public hunting places nearby for small game, white tail deer, and wild turkey. After all of these activities, many people want to stay right at our farm and relax. When you are at Ridge Top Hideaway, it is like you are stepping back in time to the good old days when life was simpler. We have a fully remodeled four bedroom farmhouse with a large covered porch, 450sqft Paver Patio for grilling and enjoying meals outside. We also have about 2 1/2 miles of trails cut through our 47 acres of woods. This is great for a realizing walk, viewing wildlife, or cross country skiing in the winter.
