There are two private bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other a double and a twin. Plus, there's a large sleeping loft with a queen size bed. We added a half bath upstairs to serve those 5 beds. Downstairs, there is one queen bed and a day bed with trundle. The bathroom is newly remodeled, and clad all in cedar. You'll love the outdoor living space. Relax on the deck which offers fantastic views, or in the screen porch. Outdoor grills are provided.

From the misty morning sunrises to the blazing fires at sunset, this has been a wonderful retreat. We enjoyed the openness of the cabin and the land. Close-by trout streams and farmers market in Viroqua were highlights of our stay. This has been a place we hope to return to! ----D & B, Chicago, IL

About the Owner/Manager

You’d just like to get away for a couple of days with your sweetheart. Or you want to take your kids on a special vacation, in nature, by the water. Or you are taking off with a buddy or three to fish for a few days, or with your gal pals to catch up – and maybe catch fish, too. Is this you? Then one of the three facilities at Nature Nooks Retreat will be perfect for your get-away. Got a bigger group? Family reunion being planned? Researching for a retreat spot or business meeting? The space and kitchen in Kinship Place is a dream for serving a group, and the meeting space is a place to help GOOD things happen.

Here at Nature Nooks Retreat, we have lovely well-appointed cabins – The Lodge, Little Barn Cabin, Kinship Place - all with full kitchens, AC, woodstoves, the works. You will see photos and video of this 87 acres of habitat – from each deck, and from the mowed trails, you’ll be immersed in restored prairie, pollinator habitat, improved streambanks of the Class I trout stream, preserved and constructed wetlands. Nature calls!

Tom and Pam live on the property, and are available to answer questions, or even go on a walk-about or a float with you. We love to tell the story of this property, from the 12,000 years of human habitation, right to the present, as we continue to improve the stream banks, establish and maintain prairie restoration, and create wetlands. OUR CHARTER is to protect and enhance biodiversity and carrying capacity, and to create a means of sharing both an appreciation for and a profound sense of belonging to Nature.
