Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Kevin and Deborah Moore have been remodeling for over 30 years and have restored several residential and commercial buildings. Currently own and operate Ginny's Cupboard restaurant and Maiden Wisconsin gift shop in historic downtown Sparta, Wisconsin. With their two sons now out of the nest it became time to finish the remodeling of this historic site. In the Driftless region of Wisconsin, Sparta drew the Moore's some 20 years ago and they have not regretted it since! They know you too will fall for the beauty and lifestyle of the region.

Why the Owner Chose Sparta, WI, USA:
Opportunity spoke to us when this property became available and we could not pass up the beauty and surprisingly private setting. Arguably the best site in the City and certainly one of the most convenient to all activities. The rush of the LaCrosse River over the rapids located on property is all you need to begin relaxing and enjoying your stay. Proximity to Fort McCoy, LaCrosse, Amish and cheese country, and the multiple bike/snowmobile trails assure activities for all. New 2014 water park and pool in town, indoor ice arena, Bridge Path boasting 5 unique pedestrian bridges through the interconnected local park system. Nationally recognized historic downtown district for shopping and dining within 4 blocks of the Mill House. Old time rootbeer stand two blocks away. In short-something for eveyone whether it be business or pleasure-and convenient for all!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Located just off the Interstate, Sparta boasts the original Rails to Trails program in the nation. The Sparta-Elroy bike trail welcomes 80,000 visitors to the area annually. Well developed and maintained park system in town also hosts Legion Baseball on the 5 fields in Memorial Park. In addition to the LaCrosse River, Beaver Creek and Farmer's Valley Creek also wind through the community. Public River Run Golf Course and new water park for family fun! Check the Chamber website and hit one of the great area festivals as well-Butterfest in June locally and Warrens Cranfest in September being two of the largest. Outstanding in any season, come see the fall colors too!
