About Pete Holte

I am the second generation owner of my family farm originally purchased in 1947. Through the years it has evolved to a hobby farm with large lawn area, hiking trails through the woods and a small vineyard. The Villa was built after the flood in 2007 to provide office space safely away from floodwaters and to provide a vacation space for those who like to escape to the countryside and enjoy nature or simply to relax and enjoy time with friends and family.

Pete Holte purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Pete Holte chose Coon Valley

I have always enjoyed this property because of its fairly unique setting that includes 2 valleys with lots of hillsides and trees for wildlife habitat and trails throughout for a variety of hiking opportunities. The farm also has numerous springs and streams that provide a place for natural trout reproduction and a relaxing waterfall sound. I guess I have always wanted to share this with other people so that they can enjoy what I live with and with their feedback always enjoy it myself and never take it for granted.

What makes this cottage unique

The setting here is very appealing! The property is surrounded on several sides by running water. Several Waterfalls are on the property and the immediate scenery is incredible throughout the four seasons of the year.

Pete's property is very well maintained and very clean.

And he is such an accommodating and personable host.

Pete not only allowed us to bring our dog, he was fine with us having a few local friends over for dinner (we did check first though!).

He even made sure there was wood in the fire pit for a Saturday night bonfire.

My husband, who is a picky sleeper, said that the mattress in the upstairs bedroom is the most comfortable that he's ever slept on! Wished we would have thought to look at the tag ;)

Highly recommend this property...we would love to visit in the fall, but we are 'late to the party' on finding this gem as Pete is already completely booked for fall of 2018!

Greatest Place We Have Stayed

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have stayed at The Villa and this times for a six week period. That says something in itself and we have already reserved a six week period for 2018. The house is comfortable, the waterfall across the road a nice place to relax and just enjoy the scenery and nature. It's close to town, there's a great park with a walking path, trout stream and it's close to La Crosse. Pete, the owner is so nice and personable. The best place we have stayed yet.
