About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Relax in the comfort of a full-size 2 bedroom, 2 bath luxury 2nd floor apartment with separate entrance for your convenience and privacy. Enjoy the quiet country life with panoramic views of Big Creek Valley from the bay window in your living room, or sip a favorite beverage on the spacious balcony adjoining the King room. Feel free to enjoy our large lawn, take a walk through our woods or enjoy an evening fire in the fire pit. (Large deck attached to main house is available to guests on request.)

Our home is situated on the side of a small hill overlooking an active dairy farming area with farmers fields and pastures giving way to rolling wooded hills in the distance. Enjoy a bicycle or motorcycle ride or quiet drive along (paved) country roads, or relax in the yard or on your balcony with a good book and a glass of wine.

Wintertime sports activities are nearby with cross country and downhill skiing, tubing and snowboarding at Fort McCoy, cross country at the golf course in Sparta, and downhill at Mount La Crosse. Snowmobile trails abound! You and the kids can enjoy sledding on the mild slope of the hill right behind your apartment, build snowmen in the yard, etc. Try your hand at ice-fishing on Perch Lake or Lake Neshonoc or skating at the Sparta Hockey Rink or one of the outdoor rinks at Memorial Park in Sparta... or just snuggle in and stay warm by the electric fireplace in the apartment.

The apartment is attached to our home with a separate entrance for your convenience. Sound buffers between our living spaces mean we can't hear you and you can't hear us.


A few years ago a storm blew over an enormous elm tree I climbed as a kid. It landed on the corner of an early 1900's granary. The owner chose not to repair it and allowed us to take it down for the salvaged lumber. You'll find that reclaimed lumber throughout the apartment. Wooden floors were reworked from the granary flooring. Wainscot, trim and wood ceilings were made from the siding. Shelves and benches that adorn the apartment were made from refashioned roofing boards. Table, work station and vanity tops were made from wall studs and beams. Nail holes, knots and blemishes remain visible in the wood giving the finished pieces a unique and beautiful character.

Keywords: Luxury Suite, large yard, woods, reclaimed wood floors, close to Elroy-Sparta and La Crosse River bike trails. Day trips to Bluffs, Amish Country.
