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.

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.

Great Cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed over Mother's Day weekend! Kathy was a great host. Cabin was very nice, and open! I love the wood walls and beams! She let my kids feed a lamb and goat on her property. Which they loved! My daughter got to sit on a pony too! The short hike to waterfall on property is a must to do!

Very Enjoyable

  • 3 of 5

My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay recently at Bagley Cabin in the Woods. The location was perfect for being near friends who were camping at Wyalusing Park just a few short miles away. Cooking facilities were clean and adequate, as was the mattress and bedding. I felt pretty stupid calling on Kathy to show me how to run the shower handle. Suffice it to say that the shower works quite well. We're bird lovers and saw plenty during our stay including one that we couldn't identify. It looked like a large robin but had a white ring around its neck. We saw abundant oriole including both Baltimore and orchard orioles, rose breasted grosbeaks, wild turkey and blue jays. I put out some sunflower seed down by the woodpile and once looked out the window to count 14 jays scrambling for position! We are already making plans to return.

Cozy Oasis

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was as good as it looks online, and then some. It was warm and welcoming and allowed us the opportunity to fully relax. We were lucky to have one clear night, and the stars were amazing. We were impressed with the beauty of the area in the winter, I can only imagine how beautiful it would look in the summer!

Very nice cabin!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend. The cabin is very nice, very clean, spacious and comfortable. The setting is beautiful, out of the way and feels very private. The dozen eggs waiting for us in the fridge were a special treat. Kathy and her husband are very hospitable; they took care of Diane when she wanted to go for a hike while I was fishing.

Peaceful getaway - great place to relax and reenergize

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cabin with my parents as a last fall minute getaway. It was everything we were hoping for - quiet, peaceful, clean and well kept, with relaxing decor. We enjoyed an evening by the fire, with wood provided by the owners, and enjoyed sitting out listening to the sounds of the surrounding country side. Beds were great (sometimes a difficult thing to find). There was a terrific selection of local information and reading materials - I could have left my books at home and I would have found enough in the cabin to keep me occupied. The owner left a dozen eggs from her hens for us in the fridge, which we enjoyed. Only suggestion - maybe add a baking sheet so we could have our cinnamon rolls with the delicious eggs.

We are definitely putting this cabin on our list to return to for when we need to get way from the craziness of life. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Owner's Response: Thank you Becky! What a nice review of the cabin. I am glad that your family enjoyed your stay. Wish I would have know that you needed a baking sheet. I could have had one for you but will add one now. Thank you and God bless. Kathy
