We upgraded to high speed satellite internet and provide free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV, and a DVD player with some movies. There is a washer and dryer in the kitchen area. The cottage is heated/air conditioned and has a wonderful walk-in tile shower in the full bath. The cottage has a very comfortable king-sized bed with high quality linens and comforters. Relax with a massage during your stay at The Garden Cottage. Wayne is a licensed massage therapist (LMT) who has been helping clients since 2009 in our home as well as in office and chiropractic settings. Sessions take place in our home. The room is large and comfortable with beautiful views. Wayne practices an integrated approach to massage - combining deep tissue and trigger point release with relaxation in each session. He believes stress relief is equally important and hopes that each client leaves with a profound sense of peace. There are great hiking trails, world-class trout fishing and two wineries within just a few miles of the cottage. We are in the Bad Axe watershed, not far from the north and south forks of the Bad Axe River and Springville Creek, and a short drive to Timber and Spring Coulee trout streams. There is a large Amish community a few miles west of us with shops open to the public. Viroqua has a number of interesting places to eat or shop, and many local activities and events. We look forward to meeting you and sharing all this area has to offer. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: WILICENSECDRY-9WNP9XMore

About the neighbourhood
Vernon County is known for world-class trout fishing, with miles of public access and habitat improvements on the cold-water streams. Meadowlark Ridge is close to fishing on the Bad Axe River and Springville Creek, and a nice drive to the famous Timber Coulee Creek near Westby, Wisconsin. The Garden Cottage is perfectly suited for turkey hunters, trout enthusiasts and bikers. The area is also known for an extensive organic food culture, with Organic Valley headquarters in nearby LaFarge, and many small-scale organic farms in the area. Visitors often seek out home-made items from the large Amish population. There are great shops in Viroqua that cater to many interests, including books, bikes, fly fishing, fiber, antiques, art and music.
How to get there
We provide driving directions from Viroqua a few days before our guests check in. The cottage is easy to find and just a few miles from Viroqua.
