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.

Beautiful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed for the weekend. This was our first time using homeaway. We had a great time. The property is super nice and very clean. The bed was SUPER comfy! It was nice and relaxing. We played board games the first night and had a bonfire the second night (I just wish there were more birds at the feeder... didn't see any. =( )

As for the location, it is definitely in farm country. (Pick up groceries at Piggly Wiggly's in Prairie du Chien on the way.) We explored the two state parks nearby (Wyalusing and Pike's Peak) as well as the surrounding towns (Marquette, MacGregor, Prairie du Chien, Fennimore). They were okay. It was a lot of driving and I think next time I would just hang out at the property the entire time because it was super nice. (But I definitely recommend breakfast at Friederick's in Fennimore... it was amazing!)

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Carriage House. It had everything we needed for a relaxing getaway weekend from the stocked open concept kitchen, to the cozy window-seat for reading and drinking wine, to the comfortable bed. It was the perfect secluded location for our home base for the weekend while still being able to venture out for day trips to neighboring areas. One day we went to Wyalusing State Park for hiking and biking and another day explored Pike's Peak State Park and the quaint towns of Praire du Chien, Marquette, and McGregor. This area of WI is stunning.

We loved the salvaged barn wood and overall decor, everything about the home is warm and inviting! The beautiful location in the woods is a breath of fresh air, you will leave rested and restored. Thank you for your hospitality- we will definitely be back.
