About the property

Unique Carriage House nestled in the woods within the Driftless Region

Located in the Driftless area of Southwestern Wisconsin, “The Carriage House” is the ideal vacation get away for you to get off the grid, and become one with nature. Our Guest House awaits you. Check out our Guest Reviews and Book Today!

For fishing, we have world-class trout streams. You can don your waders and hope to outwit a brook trout on a cool foggy morning on The “Big Green” river. Just over the river in Iowa, Pikes Peak towers over the junction of the Wisconsin and Mississippi river. The view from this vantage point, is breathtaking, and exhibits some of the most unique topography in the Midwest.

The Driftless area is part of the Mississippi Flyway. Many birds fly over the river in large flocks, going north in spring and south in autumn. The great diversity of the Driftless Wisconsin area means something to suit the taste of every visitor. You can simply enjoy the peace and beauty of the countryside with a good book, a cup of coffee from a local roaster, or a glass of wine from a local vineyard. You can get on your bike and wind your way through magnificent scenery. You can shop for art, antiques, handmade furniture, artisan cheeses, or locally-grown foods.

About The Ridge Rental, LLC., Wayne & Tammy, Managing Members

We are a family owned business and want to share our passion for nature, art and hospitality. We believe that “time off the grid” is vital to well being. Living our values is important to us and we want to share it with you.

Why The Ridge Rental, LLC., Wayne & Tammy, Managing Members chose Wisconsin

Having traveled the Wisconsin and Mississippi river basins many times, we have always liked the feel of this area. This property provides our family with a unique country getaway. Many memories have been made here. We are secluded in a natural setting with easy travel to unique small towns.

What makes this cabin unique

Through our love of Nature, Landscape Architecture, Design and Sustainability we created “The Carriage House”. We used reclaimed wood from a late 1800’s barn and reclaimed wood floors from homes built in the states capital. This creates a warm and visually relaxing atmosphere. Relaxing in the window seat has been one of our favorite past times. Also, gazing at the stars through the skylights at night has been a traveler favorite.

Outside, the topography of the area is considered the “Driftless area of

Wisconsin”. This unique landscape features many ridges and valleys that is perfect for wildlife habitat, hiking, boating, fishing, biking etc… our property has a perfect blend of trails and wooded areas. The closeness to the Wisconsin River and the Mississippi River junction has made venturing off the property equally rewarding.

Loved the secluded feel of the property, great amenities, exactly how it's was described. Loved all the old barn wood trim used throughout the cabin

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This property was an amazing place to get away to! It is secluded, private yet still not too far from anything you might need to drive to (groceries, gas, etc). It was a very cozy cabin with plenty of comfortable seating and bedding. The nook was a great place to relax and the sky lights were a great addition allowing plenty of natural light in. There was a nice fire pit and it was so clear and quiet at night. We went for a walk and could not believe how the moon lit up everything around us. I wish we would have had more time to stay but we would return here in a heartbeat.

Awesome time! Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. This was a 5 day getaway for my wife and I. Very peaceful and beautifully decorated. We made all of our meals in the cottage and went on day trips each day (left at 9am, returned by 8pm). Hiking, exploring, yarn stores, coffee shops, wineries & breweries were our destinations (even the zoo and arboretum in Madison). Exactly what we were looking for. If we are ever in the area again we would definitely look to stay here. Tammy, Wayne and Michael were all so very kind and helpful both in preparation for the trip and while we were there. The Carriage House made for a very memorable trip. Thank you!

Beautiful, gorgeous, amazing....

  • 5 of 5

I can write a whole book about how amazing our experience was. The weekend my girlfriend and I spent here was exactly what we had in mind. The house itself was gorgeous. We loved it the moment we stepped in. Big, and modern while still having that cabin, romantic feeling. It had everything that we needed. I mean everything. Beautiful kitchen, super comfortable bed, gorgeous living area, comfortable and big couches, beautiful bathroom, tv, wifi, dvds, sound system, games. Plenty of towels and blankets. And the property was great. Just beautiful. My girlfriend said she could do dishes all day with that view. Lol. You see, there's a window by the kitchen sink. Probably most people go there in summer time. But we loved it in January. We took walks during the day even though it was around 0°F/-18°C. The snow, the woods. Just beautiful. At night we'd go out and watch the stars. Last night we just turned off all the lights and just watched the stars and the moon lying on the window couch. The place is secluded but there stores and towns near by. And i can go on forever. Our only regret is that we had leave a little bit in a hurry. Because we decided in the last moment to go to the Packers game. So basically, if you are looking at this please do not think twice. If you're looking for a beautiful place, secluded, romantic while not sacrificing even one little bit of comfort, this it. Just book it. It's worth every penny and you'll love every second

Little slice of seclusion in the winter

  • 5 of 5

The property is very clean and well maintained. The décor is tasteful, and inviting. It makes you feel like the owners have it set-up as if it were for themselves. The winter is probably prime time for seclusion. The owners communicated in a very timely and concerned manner. I would recommend this property to people and families who seek outdoor adventures. The winter campfires were a bonus; a great way to start the new year!
