About Christy Bouska

We have vacationed in Harper's Ferry since the early 80's when I was a young girl. It was our solace and get away from our busy lives, looking at the river, the birds and nature. It was a quick walk to the dock for a boat ride for fishing, skiing, hitting a sand bar or just sight seeing. In the winter we would go sledding and tubing on some of the hills nearby. A quick drive to Lansing, Prairie du Chien or other towns, we were able to find something to do, eat or explore if we wanted to. Now we share these memories with our children, our extended families and friends, and we want others to share our cabin with others.

Christy Bouska purchased this house in 2016

Why Christy Bouska chose Harpers Ferry

Our view and direct access is amazing. We have spent many hours watching birds, boats, stars and nature right in front of us. Its open floor plan allows for conversation and relaxation. Its steps away for fishing off the dock, even without a boat. And grilling while looking over the river- its amazing.

What makes this house unique

Amazing views, lots of outdoor space, and relaxing atmosphere. Family antiques, unique décor and other fun oddities are throughout the house. We have provided lots of games, indoor and outdoor, to have fun. Our cabin is designed to relax and unwind.

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin. It was very clean and well kept. The kitchen was well stocked. It turned cold right before we got there and they had plenty of extra blankets. There are beautiful views here and we got to watch eagles flying right in front of the cabin. Great place to stay!
