Overview

About the property

Homestyle Log Cabin in God's Country where you'll find natural peace and quiet.

We are 5 minutes from Wyalusing State Park and 15 minutes from Prairie du Chien.

"It's all true. All the compliments I'd read about Kathy & her cabin before making this choice are well deserved. Our little family reunion enjoyed the ideal environment for lasting special memories. The setting felt remote & private whereby we could delight in nature right out our door, sitting on the deck in the eve, watching the moon rise, while being entertained by twinkling fireflies as their cicada cousins harmonized in the nearby woods. A different night, by the campfire, our ears perked to the sounds of coyotes, cows, goats & even a donkey who had a brief solo part in the performance.. all treasures for our senses as we caught up on family conversation. On the flip side of nature on yet another eve after a hot, steamy day, we witnessed the stillness give way to a rush of wind stirring the trees off in the distance, the sound intensified as we watched the force bend the trees nearer & nearer until pelting rains forced us to slip through the patio doors into cool comfort. Sweet deal! Our days found us at nearby Wyalusing hiking the trails that'd been inaccessible during a previous visit - Wow, the Treasure Cave! Or kayaking the peaceful backwaters spotting 3 eagles tolerating us as we paddled ever closer. The Iowa parks claimed several hours of our time too with a beauty & history all their own. After day trips to the parks or visiting sites in PDC we refreshed & renewed back at the cabin, a beautiful, amazing & unique structure which was far more spacious than expected & with comforts way beyond necessities. A place Kathy made us truly feel was our home away from home!"

2016 Writing in the cabin journal-"Mrs. Kathy, I think I speak for all of us when I say this place is amazing. It's such a beautiful cabin that just feels so welcoming. Impressed with the beautiful "twin falls" waterfalls with soothing trickle! Didn't see the TV on once. Thanks!"

Our two bedroom custom built log cabin is 12 years old and nestled in the bluffs 3 miles from Wyalusing State Park. The cabin is on a private lane on our 40 acre property. It is set on the edge of the woods, secluded and peaceful. We invite you to take a walk to our springs and waterfalls during your stay. The Bagley Cabin is a clean and comfortable cabin where you will find the relaxation that you long for in a peaceful, natural, park like setting. It is very simply furnished, not high end style, but I think you'll find it very charming.

The main floor has an open floor plan with the kitchen to the west and the living room toward the east. The cabin has many sets of windows and patio doors that open to a deck. The bathroom with tub and shower is on this floor.

This log cabin is 5 minutes from Wyalusing State Park and not more than 10 minutes from Wyalusing Beach and the boat landings either at Wyalusing or Bagley. If you need a little more contact with the outside world, we are about 12 minutes from Prairie du Chien and 20 minutes from the shops in Marquette or Mcgregor.

The cabin is very clean and comfortable. It is nestled in the trees and from the windows in the open kitchen and living area you might see deer, turkeys, squirrels and birds. The cabin has a furnished kitchen so you can do your grocery shopping before you get here and settle in for a few days. A TV, (no cable), and DVD player are in the living room area with a selection of movies for those that would just like to curl up on the couch and enjoy the solitude. There are plenty of blankets and pillows in the living room for nesting.

The bedrooms are in the lower level which are a stairway away from the bathroom. Both of the bedrooms downstairs have queen beds. This quiet cabin in the woods is just the place to get a welcome rest.

There is a campfire ring where you could relax with a fire in the evening. We will provide the wood. It's very possible if you're quiet you will see deer stroll through the woods as the sun goes down.

We keep a horse and pony, a few sheep,some chickens and a couple barn cats on our little acreage. I would be happy to share some farm fresh eggs for your breakfast.

Our cabin would be a great place to make your home base for a relaxing vacation in the Bagley, Wyalusing, Prairie du Chien, Marquette, McGregor, Lancaster, Fennimore and surrounding areas.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin was built by Michael and Jason Udelhofen from Cassville, Wisconsin. They take great pride in their work and are artists when it comes to cabin building. This cabin was a small undertaking for them but it has touches of their creativity all through it.

It sits on the edge of the woods and there is always wildlife on the property. It is secluded and private, yet easy to get in and out on the short driveway off Cooley Lane. You will feel close to nature out here.

This cabin was a gift from God and so we want to bless others by sharing the peace and quiet out here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I sit here on our 3rd morning at this peaceful cabin and it's time to go home. :( If it wasn't booked right after us, I know we would stay another night. We have really enjoyed our stay here. It is so pleasant and quiet. I wish we had just 1 more night and tomorrow I would say just 2 more nights, the next day 3 more nights, etc.

The only time we left was to visit the waterfalls and introduce ourselves to Kathy and Dick, very nice people. I wish they were our neighbors for more than 3 days.

Otherwise we stayed here to just relax, read, watched a couple movies Kathy had cooked together and caught up on some much needed alone time. (Yesterday was our 34th anniversary) Seriously the secret to the perfect spouse started long before 34 years ago. You pray and ask God to lead you to the person He wants you to marry.

It's time to get packing up for home and back to our hectic lives, work, children, elderly parents. Thank you Kathy and Dick for a great time.

Very cute and remote cabin nestled in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Bagley Cabin. Perfect location! Close to Wyalusing State Park where we hiked some amazing trails and close to Prairie Du Chien, Marquette, and McGregor where we did some antique shopping. We are already planning our next trip to come back, we ran out of time to do all the activities the area has to offer. There was great hospitality with this cabin. She reaearched what was going on in the area for us and sent is the information. Also tl she provided us with farm fresh eggs!!!! Highly recommend Bagley Cabin and exploring this area!!

Perfect place for a relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were so impressed by how large and lovely Kathy's property was. We had a great time cooking meals, enjoying the large deck and getting in multiple hikes in the area (one visit knocked out two states for us). Kathy was incredibly responsive to any questions and was flexible about checkout time, which we much appreciated.

We did not have phone service (T-mobile or Virgin Mobile) for large parts of the weekend, but Kathy did address this in her caning description. A great visit overall.

Very peaceful

  • 3 of 5

Didn't like that there wasn't a bathroom by the bedroom or even on the same floor. Didn't like that we weren't allowed to use the back door, if they would poor a small patio out back that would take care of the problem of the floor getting dirty. Also it would be nice if they would remove all of their personal items from the house. Guest don't need to see their child's pictures or their faith in God. The bed was very uncomfortable and too small for a couple, should be at least a queen size.

The cabin was beautiful, very clean and had everything that we needed to cook with. It was very nice that the owners left eggs for us. Also we were able to go out back and have a nice fire with the firewood the owners had stacked. We saw many shooting stars both nights that we stayed. Overall we enjoyed staying at the Bagley Cabin.

Owner's Response: Theresa, I appreciate your review. I will touch on a few of your concerns to help future guests. 1. You may not have read through my listing before booking the cabin but it does state that the bathroom is on the main floor and bedrooms are on the lower level. 2. My listing also states the beds are queen beds and they are. (The sheets are queen size also:) 3. I'm sorry that you didn't like the lower exit being an emergency only door. The fire pit is less than 20 feet from that exit and it's best to keep the smoke and soot out of the bedroom areas. Avoiding extra cleaning jobs in this area of the cabin means I don't add a cleaning fee as some rentals do. 4. Most guests do enjoy seeing Max the horse and Root Beer the pony. I thought a photo of Root Beer being loved might make someone smile. Many guests tell me that they enjoy seeing the sheep and goats so thought a few pictures of them at the fair would be nice. I am sorry that this offended you. 5. My faith is the reason this cabin is being shared with you and the many guests that want to come to this area. If it wasn't for our blessings, we could not offer a peaceful cabin to share. I am sorry my faith offends you. I am glad that you did find some things that you enjoyed while you were here. The stars are quite a work aren't they? I work very hard to make the cabin a welcoming getaway. Peace, Kathy
