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.House has recently been updated with new siding and windows. 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).

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 75 registered Guernsey cows on the home farm. Our farm is totally family operated. We converted the farmhouse 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 brought our herd of 45 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 now totals 700 acres. We have raised 7 children on the farm who are now all grown. Several of them along with grandchildren are still involved on the farm in different capacities. We enjoy getting to know our guests and sharing farming background with them.

Why mary kaye dorn chose New Glarus
Guests have shared with us that they are so amazed with the peacefulness and beauty of the area. You will feel you are a word away from everything yet so close to the Village of New Glarus which in itself is an amazing place to visit. Settled by Swiss immigrants it a tourist town that shares their Swiss heritage. Within a short distance is must stop - The New Glarus Brewery and new this year - Bailey's Run Vineyard.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Located down a long driveway and nestled in a valley you will feel you are a world away from everything. The peacefulness is amazing. There is something about the farmhouse that takes you to another place when life was slower and time stands still. Take in the countryside and breathe.

Relaxing family friendly getaway!
Our family had a wonderful time at the house, all the comforts of home! The house was clean and had everything we needed, including some extras I wasn't expecting so I know next time I don't need to pack a booster seat or a pack n play for my youngest. Loved the thick luxurious towels, and the beds were all nice.The kids loved the farm themed room, the tire swings and exploring the property, as well as visiting the farm and getting to feed calves and pet kittens! The owners were very kind and hospitable. The property is beautiful, we loved roaming around and going for long walks, so peaceful and quiet. Loved the walk in basement, so handy to come in that entrance to wash off muddy boots and dog feet ;) There is no wifi but I personally found this to be a benefit and loved the time away from the rest of the world for a couple days. My kids were asking to come back before we even left! We definitely plan to return, thank you for a wonderful stay!
Very quiet and relaxing....
The bedrooms were warm and welcoming. Lots of closet space and nice towels. Loved the wood floors. Had a nice fire outside, on our last night. My only negative comment would be the house could use a deep cleaning. That said it would not stop me from staying there again.
Beautiful, clean farmhouse with acres of land to enjoy the great outdoors.
We brought our 3 grandkids here for 3 days and couldn’t have been more pleased with our decision. The kids LOVED the swings and the playroom.... our grandson called it his “dream room” We took the kids & our 2 labs on LONG walks every day. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home...we will definitely return.
Nice home and beautiful countryside, good for kids
We really enjoyed our recent stay. The house fit four adults and four children (two six-year olds and two two-year olds) comfortably. The older boys loved the tractor and tire swings, and all of the children enjoyed playing in the toy room. The fire pit was situated in the perfect place down the hill from the house and along the field. We spent a perfect summer night there enjoying the view the full moon provided. The close proximity to New Glarus made for good day trips to explore the town and the bike trails. Thanks for your hospitality!
We had a wonderful time! Our kids loved the playroom and we all loved the house!
We had a wonderful time at the house! Mary was helpful and kind and welcomed us to visit her working farm which our kids loved! We missed access to wifi since the house doesn't have it but managed with our cellphones.
Weekend in New Glarus
We had a gorgeous women's weekend at the farmhouse. Perfect weather, tubing in Albany, cheese in Monroe, etc. The house has everything you could need. It's a wonderful place to enjoy a fire at night, or have coffee on the balcony. We'd definitely go back!
