Spotless accommodations in a beautiful natural setting. Hosts provide the extra details for a memorable getaway weekend -- like a pre-built stack of kindling and cut wood ready to provide a cheery outdoor fire at the touch of the lighter. Wonderful view of the valley from a private patio. Our favorite getaway.
Peace and Rest with stunning West Wisconsin View!
We had a comfortable relaxing stay after two great days of trout fishing. The Gitter's home is right in the middle of Class 1 trout water and we couldn't have asked for better hosts. Sparkling clean with a few items available that are often forgotten. I can whole-heartedly re-iterate the delicious baked goods provided each morning. Excellent! the only reason the there was one 4 rating (accuracy of the online listing) was for the single set of stairs needed to get down to the lodging. We would have packed two lighter suitcases if we knew about the stairs. A really small detail.
Idyllic Driftless cabin with lovely hosts
Charming hosts, charming place, and a spectacular view: a welcome respite from the city life in the Driftless. Thanks again, Jim and Cate!
Thank you! You are welcome to return any time. It was a joy to host you both.
Quiet views and relaxation...
Stunning view, quiet, and aflutter with nearly silent activity.
The rental unit is the lower level of a beautiful home. The ample sitting area has a sectional sofa and two person high table and chairs which are a great use of the space. A small refrigerator/freezer is provided. A Keurig coffee machine is provided, with tea as well. The bedrooms are nice sized with many well curated decorative pieces.
My favorite pieces are the Amish made crazy quilt on the interior stairwell that separates the upper owner occupied area from the rental unit. Also Amish made is the stunning hickory rocker made locally for the owners. Such a well crafted piece of comfortably functional furniture. The last items of note are the pottery placed throughout. My favorite being the face pot in what I call the blue bedroom. A detailed and playful piece.
The unit provides games, books - from short stories and fiction to mystery - my favorite the collection of fishing themed short stories called The One That Got Away. A limited number of DVDs are provided too.
The patio with lower level fire pit is a great place to sit and observe or read. Many bird feeders provide the chance to see so many species. The numerous hummingbirds were our favorites. We also spent the evening hours watching the stars, planets, and satellites as they passed overhead. The night gave us a chance to hear a barred owl in the valley.
There are also some mowed short paths around the rental property for some strolling. Nice way to see the nearby fields and to see some of the local wildflowers.
The owners are the perfect balance of accessible and respectful of privacy. We chatted several times about the area and their suggestions and experience. The fresh daily baked goods are a welcome and delicious treat.
As far as the valley seen from the patio goes, the view of it is perfect. Just after dawn, the mist in the valley is a sight to see. We drove into the valley just after sunrise and took some photos. The mist makes for a dramatic image of the landscape.
We hiked at the owners’ suggestion a county park/forest called Duck Egg. Both entrances are good, but we preferred the prairie start point on the northern most entrance. The western entrance is more of a tree canopied trail that crosses the Bad Axe River at the beginning.
You can’t go wrong at Newton Ridge.
NOTE - please be aware that there are many Amish buggies on the roads. Be careful.
Thank you Sean! We enjoyed having you and Connie as guests.
Newton Ridge Lodge tem a melhor vista em Vernon County. Nosso ponto de vista do cume do North Fork do rio Bad Ax é simplesmente incrível. Estamos localizados a poucos minutos do melhor pesca da truta na área de Driftless. O North Fork do rio Bad Ax está a poucos minutos de distância como é Duck Egg County Park, e área de Eagle Eye Mississippi Vale Conservancy. Duck Egg Park é ótimo para caminhadas, pesca com mosca, observação de pássaros e passeios a cavalo (você fornece o cavalo). Vernon County é conhecida por suas fazendas orgânicas, e restaurantes, e os agricultores mercado. Fazendas Amish também abundam com lojas de móveis, colchas e padarias. Os anfitriões da área corridas de bicicleta, eventos musicais, e feira do condado. O Driftless Café é um deve fazer enquanto na área. Este restaurante apresenta localmente cultivados alimentos. O rio Mississippi é de 15 minutos com belas vistas e observação de águia. Alheamento é incrível na escuridão das noites coulee.
