The chalet was clean and well appointed. The property and the trails were beautiful. Only thing missing, DVD player. I would higher recommend this vacation rental.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting from Fargo, ND and stayed to see friends living in LaCrosse. This was the perfect setup for our group. We used the extra cabin as well. We would have needed multiple hotel rooms and would have not had a kitchen or common living place. The Chalet was better than the pictures showed! A wonderful quiet spot that was easy to find, we would definitely stay here again.

Nice setting, outdated house with a lot of bugs.

  • 3 of 5

The property is pretty but within a mile of the highway. There are many building and sheds on the property and you need to drive to the back of the property through cornfields and by a mobile home. The house had lots on dead insects in the doorways, light fixtures and under furniture. The kitchen was decently outfitted but the microwave was missing the rotating plate.

Could be a nice place with some updating and cleaning.

Owner's Response: This time of year is very difficult to keep flies out of the house on a secluded forested property. We do clean and vacuum on a daily basis and would have been happy to vacuum up during your stay if notified. The microwave tray has been replaced. A previous guest broke it and the new one didn't arrive in time for your stay. There was a stand in tray available for your stay.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

The house is on a beautiful piece of land with lots of trails to walk on. It was comfortable with 2 bedrooms and a beautiful deck overlooking the fields. Equidistant from Winona and Lacrosse there were a bunch of places to visit and activities to do nearby.

Charming, perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property is gorgeous in a very quiet area but close to both La Crosse and Winona for day trips and great restaurants, although the kitchen comes equipped with everything you might need to cook as well, including a grill. The beds are super comfortable, and I just loved the homey feel of the wood inside. Very clean and just overall a great value for the price.
