Overview

About the property

Located just 5 minutes from ""America's Little Switzerland" New Glarus WI

The Farm House is nestled in a peaceful valley with a long driveway, miles away from the busyness of everyday life. With 4 bedrooms (2 queen and 3 full beds) we can accommodate large groups in this country home of yesteryear. All linens, towels, soap are provided. The house is set up to settle in for weekend stay or longer. Except for food the house is fully equipped with everything you need. There is also a washer & dryer. Originally built in the late 1800's little has changed in the house since it was remodeled in 1933. Original woodwork, hardwood floors, French doors, glass door knobs, and a coziness about it that invites rest and relaxation. Country charm and warmth in every room. You're invited to hike during your stay on our 700 acre working dairy/crop farm. In the evening relax around a campfire (firewood provided). Dine out at the unique restaurants in New Glarus or use the Farm House kitchen or gas grill. Reconnect with family, friends and nature. You are also invited to visit our dairy farm if desired.

About mary kaye dorn

Our family purchased the Farm House in 1992 along with 180 acres. The 180 acres connects with the remainder of our dairy/crop farm. We milk a herd of Guernsey cows. Our farm is totally family operated. Until 2006 the barn was used yet for milking yet but at that time our son moved out of the farmhouse and we converted it into a vacation house to share especially with city folks who don't get the opportunity to enjoy the countryside. We also wanted families to understand our farming life style. We moved to New Glarus in 1980 when we originally brought our herd of cows to our original farm of 350 acres. Since then we were able to add acreage from this property as well as some other adjoining acreage so our farm totals 700 acres. We have raised 7 children on the farm who are now all grown. Several of them are still involved on the farm in different capacities. We enjoy getting to know our guests and sharing our farming background with them.

Lovely Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to get away from the city, so we were looking for something remote, but with close access to a little downtown area, and somewhere we could bring our dog. This farmhouse was the perfect option. The house itself has been restored but the owner's kept so much of the original that they could. In the morning we could hear the birds, and in the evening it was so peaceful and quiet. We had day trips planned but we didn't want to leave once we were there. It was so close to downtown New Glarus, but far enough away to feel like the perfect retreat. We were able to check out the farm and the baby cows, which was so wonderful to see! I am already looking forward to visiting this farmhouse again in the future!

Awesome Owner

The setting is quiet, terrific. Well thought out for kids. Everything was clean. Most importantly, the owner was amazing to work with. New Glarus is fun to walk around too.

Beautiful Scenery

  • 4 of 5

This is beautiful country. The owners are so sweet to work with and they allowed us to visit their dairy farm about three miles away. Our children loved playing with the baby kittens and feeding a calf.

As much as the kids enjoyed the tire swings, farm inspired playroom, and visiting the farm, the house was a bit on the dirty side when we arrived. The kitchen and bathroom had not been properly cleaned before our stay. However, the roomy house and beautiful landscape made up for it. It is a picturesque place and a great spot for a big family to gather.

Owner's Response: This was disappointing to hear that the house was not clean because I hired someone to clean it for me for that weekend as I was gone visiting my son in TX and wasn't able to do it myself. I normally always clean the house myself and have never had someone say that the house was not clean.

Wonderful weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful countryside setting nestled among rolling hills. We enjoyed a very comfortable stay and loved the large house and expansive grounds to wander on. Mary Kaye was kind enough to extend an invitation for us to visit the family farm down the road and the boys are still talking about getting to bottle feed some baby cows! As I normally do when we get ready to go away for a weekend, I packed up the boys' handheld Nintendo games to take with us, but they were not even requested once this weekend! Lots of fresh air and no traffic noise! For about the same price as a hotel this experience can't be beat.
