Spacious with a cozy home comfort

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed our stay in New Glarus. We felt well cared for in the Duerst Guest House. One thing we would have enjoyed was a larger selection of board games for adults or all ages. We would recommend this home to any friends wishing to stay in the area.

We will be back~

  • 5 of 5

Came here with high school girlfriends for our birthdays. We were blown away at how charming the Duerst House is. It was clean and cozy. We loved sitting around the kitchen table chatting and eating (a lot of cheese). We had a bonfire out back. It was the perfect place for the five of us to stay. I would highly recommend coming here. We walked into town and ate some great food and visited quaint shops. You can tell the owner of the Duerst house takes a lot of pride in this home and it shows. Already looking at planning a trip back in the fall.

Best equipped VRBO house EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

Six girlfriends enjoyed this house . Plenty of room for everyone - comfortable beds and plenty of them. We found more excellent quality towels, pillows and coverlets than all the houses we've stayed in combined! Kitchen had everything, including Keurig coffee and sweetener and creamer. Bathrooms were stocked with soap and shampoo and plenty of toilet paper. Nice big flat screen TV. Very efficient central AC was really appreciated on a warm weekend. Location is amazing - walking distance to town, restaurants and the Sugar River Bike Trail (it was a real treat to walk there on beautiful mornings filled with birdsong!). Even had the rare pleasure of meeting Jane, the delightful owner. We are pleased to highly recommend this fabulous house to anyone visiting the New Glarus area!!

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 women spent 3 nights here and we all loved the house. It is large enough that we all had our own private spaces. Our first stop in town was the New Glarus Brewery to stock up on our favorite brews. We went to Spring Green the next day and toured Taliesen and House on the Rock. We were intending to head to Madison the next day but a spring snowstorm persuaded us to spend the day exploring the local shops instead. The big kitchen table was great for games and socializing in the evening. We also watched a couple movies in the comfortable parlor. It was very handy to have the exercise room downstairs and to have 3 full bathrooms. I would love to return in warmer weather to enjoy the front porch. This is a real gem!
