A quiet getaway in the Driftless Region awaits you! Experience a stay in our round house just outside of Richland Center, where we offer you a peaceful lower level retreat. Naturally cool in the summer, with cozy woodstove heat in winter. Private, separate entrance to sitting room, sunroom, newly remodeled bedroom with queen size bed, and shared bathroom, your stay includes use of the "suite". Two futons are available by request, accommodating up to 4 people total, for families or small groups--please contact us for details. Wireless internet, DVD player and TV, mini fridge, and coffee pot are included. We provide freshly ground Puerto Rican coffee to start your morning! Use of the kitchen upstairs is available if you choose. Hawkeye and Radar, our yellow lab/husky mix boys, and Coqui, our Jack Russell mix, will greet you, but they only live in the upper level of the house. Sully the cat may also make an appearance!
We are located exactly halfway between Madison and La Crosse in the beautiful hills of southwest Wisconsin. We are less than four hours from the major metro areas of Chicago and the Twin Cities. Trout fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and biking for spring, summer, and fall fun, and miles of snowmobile and cross country ski trails and great ice fishing spots in the winter months are all nearby. We are within half an hour of quaint shops in Spring Green, House on the Rock, and Taliesin, as well as several large Amish settlements and the Wisconsin River. One hour's drive takes you to the Elroy-Sparta and Military Ridge bike trails, as well as Wisconsin Dells, Prairie du Chien, Platteville, Madison, and La Crosse.
We are empty nesters with lots of extra room and we'd love to have you as our guests!

My husband and I enjoy peaceful, off-the-beaten-path places. We like to do most everything for ourselves, and we put ourselves into everything we do. When you stay with us, you aren't just renting a room, you're sharing our dream come true.
Both Dennis and I are artisans. Dennis makes anything and everything out of wood, from small boxes to entire homes. His most beautiful creations are hardwood music stands, which you could almost call sculptures. I make jewelry from sea glass which I find on beaches on Puerto Rico. I am also a singer/songwriter/guitar player.
We live in the beautiful, hilly Driftless Region of southwestern Wisconsin (the only part of the Midwest U.S. that never saw the glaciers), and have a 2 bedroom cabin in the mountains of Puerto Rico, in the midst of coffee country. We designed and built both of our places, and they are both "do-decagons", or 12 sided circular structures, so staying with us is really an experience that is "outside the box"!
We love to travel to new places, but also return to Puerto Rico several times each year. We have hosted 12 exchange students from all over the world, have traveled to Germany, Canada, and the Caribbean, love biking, hiking, and are certified SCUBA divers, and we're animal lovers, too (especially big silly yellow labs!).
I speak English as well as some French and a bit of Spanish, with sprinkles of German thrown in for good measure! I love to cook, so if you stay with us in Wisconsin you might just get a great meal as an added bonus! Our hosting style is as involved or as "hands off" as you like--you choose!
We hope you will enjoy your stay with us. We look forward to meeting you!
