Guestbook comments from the owner



We had a wonderful time in your beautiful house!!! The only thing we'd suggest would be clearer directions. Possible telling people if coming on I90 E or W to take the Nodine exit 267, go past the Kwik Trip, take the right on 104, go down until you see 125, take a left, go until you see a yellow house on left.. Just a thought

Thanks again we'd stay again!!

All our best from all our Families

Excellent gathering spot for family, comfortable and well-equipped for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a long Thanksgiving weekend, gathering family for an early Christmas celebration. We filled the bedrooms with people but still didn't feel crowded at all. The party room, living room, dining room, and kitchen were favorite spots, and a couple of us really loved the cozy library area off the kitchen. Owners were responsive and attentive to our needs, and very friendly but allowed us our space without interruption. The near-by state park was a bonus for the athletic types who like to walk off the dinners, and the house was super-quiet for those of us who like to sleep-off the dinners. We rent from VRBO several times each year, and we highly recommend this property as one of the best. We hope to return with our family next year, same time and place. Thank you for a great stay, Sheila and Dave!!

As advertised and lots of space

  • 4 of 5

We had plenty of room and even some extra space for our group of 12 people. There are a lot of beds (some more comfortable than others) and the bathrooms were spacious. Sheila met us when we got there and was very accommodating. Everything was clean and we enjoyed the stay! We'll stay here again if we're in the area.

What a beautiful setting!

  • 4 of 5

Sheila and David were very accommodating when our group of college friends from around the state met there for our 50th college reunion from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse. The house is unbelievable and very well furnished. We enjoyed our stay.

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 13 people returned to the house to gather and relax before a big race. Sheila had extra beds set-up for us which gave us the room we needed to spread out with privacy. We appreciated the effort it took to have the additional beds set up. It was very comfortable. Having 4 bathrooms with showers was helpful for a large group. We enjoyed the dining room and having a large area to eat in together. The house is very nice and has become an annual place for us to stay.

Great vacation home to celebrate our 40th Anniversary.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hegge Haven the weekend of our 40th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren. It is a very welcoming and spacious home with comfy beds and plenty of room outside. We had 16 people (8 adults and 8 kids ranging from age 5 to 12). The kids had brought along their own baseball/softball equipment, but never took it out of the cars -- they were just too busy. It was a great weekend and I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a country retreat for family functions or whatever. Property was easy to get to as it is less than 2 miles off Interstate 90.
