About the property

Evergreen Retreat is located on our homestead. Stay and play at Evergreen Farm on nearly 20 acres of land. Help yourself to farm fresh organic eggs from our 8 chickens. Pet and play with our 2 goats! Explore the 20 acres of forest and farm land. Go for a hike or a bike ride or take it easy and sit out on your private walk around porch (screened in) and overlook the huge pine forest in front of you. Encounter Deer and wild turkey. Have a camp fire, cozy up with a great book, on the hammock in the middle of the woods, play games or hunt for a treasure with the provided metal detector. Enjoy the serene quiet only the country can offer you. At night look up at an amazing clear view of the stars!

The fully updated Evergreen Retreat Rental Unit features new flooring, updated kitchen and paint and each room has a flat screen television. The kitchen is stocked with dishes and cookware, everything you need to feel at home. Free Wifi is included along with access to 1000's of Movies and TV shows through Netflix, Amazon Prime and just added HBO. For your entertainment, the main living room features a Wii U with Super Mario Maker and many more games. The “Arcade" bedroom features a “free-play" classic stand up arcade with over 60 classics games like Space Invaders, PacMan, Centipede and more. The “Arcade" bedroom also features an original Atari 2600 with games like Asteroid, Donkey Kong, Missile Command and more. To top it off this room also has a Nintendo Entertainment System.. Play all the originals (Mario 1,2,3 and many more) or play the new games on the Wii U!

Enjoy our homestead and our cozy little town of Montello. Located less than 40 minutes to Wisconsin Dells! Montello has lakes around every corner for fishing or exploring. Downtown Montello (and our one stop light intersection) has a great one show movie theater with a new movie each week. Popcorn is only about $2, Candy $1… the prices are amazing (Only $5 per ticket) and it is a great place for a date night or fun to bring the entire family without breaking the bank. Before the movie stop in at our favorite place to eat (anywhere on planet Earth), Charlottes Rendezvous Cafe (who also offers canoe and tubing trips down the Fox river). They have the best pizza we have ever eaten as well as burgers, paninis and an amazing fish fry that should not be missed. Later stroll past the historic waterfalls and stop downtown at the old fashion candy and ice cream store- take a step back in time in this lovely little candy store and ice cream shop.

You will have access to ~ 20 acres of forest and farm land. You can access the chicken coop and the goat area to play with the animals. You can explore and walk paths throughout our 20 acres of mostly wooded land. Our home is located on the property, but Evergreen Retreat is a separate unit with a separate entrance, with a private wrap around screened in porch overlooking acres of forest land.

We live on the property and we are available. We would love to meet you- BUT we also respect that some folks prefer privacy. The unit has a lockbox and is very private, but we are around if you need anything.

The Evergreen Retreat has a separate entrance (the unit is upstairs). There is plenty of parking space near the entrance as the drive way loops around the property.

Check in time is anytime after 3 and check out time is 10.

Perfect place for a rainy weekend

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I recently spent a relaxing weekend here. The apartment was warm and cozy but with all the modern conveniences you could ask for. The beds were amazing, both my daughter and I slept so well. She loved the arcade bedroom, and I had fun reliving my youth playing Pacman! We also loved meeting the animals, and enjoying fresh eggs every morning.

Jen was so welcoming and friendly, and was in regular communication with us throughout the weekend.

We would love to visit again.

They have thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults plus our dog really enjoyed our weekend stay. Very spacious and clean! The property has lots to offer ranging from trails to walk, goats and chickens, games galore for family entertainment and hosts that were great at ensuring we had everything we needed. Montello is close by with a few good places to eat and a grocery store to stock up on food to prepare in the well equipped kitchen. Would not hesitate to recommend!

Good value

  • 4 of 5

We used this rental as a home base for skiing at Granite Peak and Cascade. Given that it was relatively inexpensive, it was worth it. The unit is very spacious as others have stated and my 13 yo son had fun using the Arcade machine and the property is beautiful and peaceful as others have also stated. The reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 stars is that the pull-out bed was very uncomfortable so my son and I ended up sharing the Master bed rather than each of the 3 of us (my daughter was also with us) getting our own bed. Again, though, for the money it is a good deal as it cost about the same as an inexpensive hotel room in which I would have had to share a bed with my son too and my daughter would not have any privacy nor would we have been able to cook (important for us as my daughter is Vegan and it is tough finding Vegan in Wisconsin outside of Milwaukee and Madison).

Owner's Response: Thank you Richard for the rating and review. I am sorry your son had an uncomfortable time, I will look into something that can be possibly put over it to make it more comfy. There was a air mattress up there as well he could have used. I wish you would have said something in the many emails I sent to you to ask if everything was OK. But I thank you for the feedback I will take it and work on it. Other than that I am glad you had a great time, I hope you all decide to come back again sometime.

Charming, homey farm retreat

  • 4 of 5

My two kids and I, along with one of their teenage friends, spent a lovely three day weekend at the Evergreen Farm Retreat. The owners are very gracious and organized with lots of suggestions of fun things to do. The animals were a lot of fun to meet, pet and feed. We enjoyed exploring the spacious, pine-covered property with the metal detector! The space was charming and homey with many lovely details. The bathroom was spacious and nicely appointed. The kitchen had everything you could need! The three teens particularly enjoyed the room dedicated to games with the old arcade game machine. The wrap around, screened in porch is also a neat feature. We were able quickly get to the Dells and a fishing day on Puckaway Lake easily, in addition to exploring the quaint town of Montello. Overall, we were very pleased! Thank you, Mann family, for sharing your property with us. :D

Comfortable and welcoming with beautiful woods and a charming farm

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious and comfortable, with a great open area with several comfy hang-out zones. It is well-appointed with board games, video games, and entertainment systems should you need to keep kids (or adults) happy on a rainy day. The farm's chickens, goats, and dogs were endlessly fascinating for my six-year-old, and the eggs she collected were delicious. We took a lovely walk in the woods on the property, but sadly time didn't permit us to take advantage of the fire pit. The hosts were so welcoming and recommended some great local spots. On their suggestion, we rented a canoe at Rendezvous in Montello and paddled down the river, and then stayed for the Friday Night Fish Fry. It was the perfect spot for a laid-back getaway. I want to come back for more.
