Overview

About the property

Homestyle Log Cabin in God's Country where you'll find natural peace and quiet.

We are 5 minutes from Wyalusing State Park and 15 minutes from Prairie du Chien.

We especially like to cater to nature lovers, bird watchers and people who love the country life.

"It's all true. All the compliments I'd read about Kathy & her cabin before making this choice are well deserved. Our little family reunion enjoyed the ideal environment for lasting special memories. The setting felt remote & private whereby we could delight in nature right out our door, sitting on the deck in the eve, watching the moon rise, while being entertained by twinkling fireflies as their cicada cousins harmonized in the nearby woods. A different night, by the campfire, our ears perked to the sounds of coyotes, cows, goats & even a donkey who had a brief solo part in the performance.. all treasures for our senses as we caught up on family conversation. On the flip side of nature on yet another eve after a hot, steamy day, we witnessed the stillness give way to a rush of wind stirring the trees off in the distance, the sound intensified as we watched the force bend the trees nearer & nearer until pelting rains forced us to slip through the patio doors into cool comfort. Sweet deal! Our days found us at nearby Wyalusing hiking the trails that'd been inaccessible during a previous visit - Wow, the Treasure Cave! Or kayaking the peaceful backwaters spotting 3 eagles tolerating us as we paddled ever closer. The Iowa parks claimed several hours of our time too with a beauty & history all their own. After day trips to the parks or visiting sites in PDC we refreshed & renewed back at the cabin, a beautiful, amazing & unique structure which was far more spacious than expected & with comforts way beyond necessities. A place Kathy made us truly feel was our home away from home!"

2016 Writing in the cabin journal-"Mrs. Kathy, I think I speak for all of us when I say this place is amazing. It's such a beautiful cabin that just feels so welcoming. Impressed with the beautiful "twin falls" waterfalls with soothing trickle! Didn't see the TV on once. Thanks!"

Our two bedroom custom built log cabin is 12 years old and nestled in the bluffs 3 miles from Wyalusing State Park. The cabin is on a private lane on our 40 acre property. It is set on the edge of the woods, secluded and peaceful. We invite you to take a walk to our springs and waterfalls during your stay. The Bagley Cabin is a clean and comfortable cabin where you will find the relaxation that you long for in a peaceful, natural, park like setting. It is very simply furnished, not high end style, but I think you'll find it very charming.

The main floor has an open floor plan with the kitchen to the west and the living room toward the east. The cabin has many sets of windows and patio doors that open to a deck. The bathroom with tub and shower is on this floor.

This log cabin is 5 minutes from Wyalusing State Park and not more than 10 minutes from Wyalusing Beach and the boat landings either at Wyalusing or Bagley. If you need a little more contact with the outside world, we are about 12 minutes from Prairie du Chien and 20 minutes from the shops in Marquette or Mcgregor.

The cabin is very clean and comfortable. It is nestled in the trees and from the windows in the open kitchen and living area you might see deer, turkeys, squirrels and birds. The cabin has a furnished kitchen so you can do your grocery shopping before you get here and settle in for a few days. A TV, (no cable), and DVD player are in the living room area with a selection of movies for those that would just like to curl up on the couch and enjoy the solitude. There are plenty of blankets and pillows in the living room for nesting.

The bedrooms are in the lower level which are a stairway away from the bathroom. Both of the bedrooms downstairs have queen beds. This quiet cabin in the woods is just the place to get a welcome rest.

There is a campfire ring where you could relax with a fire in the evening. We will provide the wood. It's very possible if you're quiet you will see deer stroll through the woods as the sun goes down.

We keep a horse and pony, a few sheep,some chickens and a couple barn cats on our little acreage. I would be happy to share some farm fresh eggs for your breakfast.

Our cabin would be a great place to make your home base for a relaxing vacation in the Bagley, Wyalusing, Prairie du Chien, Marquette, McGregor, Lancaster, Fennimore and surrounding areas.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin was built by Michael and Jason Udelhofen from Cassville, Wisconsin. They take great pride in their work and are artists when it comes to cabin building. This cabin was a small undertaking for them but it has touches of their creativity all through it.

It sits on the edge of the woods and there is always wildlife on the property. It is secluded and private, yet easy to get in and out on the short driveway off Cooley Lane. You will feel close to nature out here.

This cabin was a gift from God and so we want to bless others by sharing the peace and quiet out here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I sit here on our 3rd morning at this peaceful cabin and it's time to go home. :( If it wasn't booked right after us, I know we would stay another night. We have really enjoyed our stay here. It is so pleasant and quiet. I wish we had just 1 more night and tomorrow I would say just 2 more nights, the next day 3 more nights, etc.

The only time we left was to visit the waterfalls and introduce ourselves to Kathy and Dick, very nice people. I wish they were our neighbors for more than 3 days.

Otherwise we stayed here to just relax, read, watched a couple movies Kathy had cooked together and caught up on some much needed alone time. (Yesterday was our 34th anniversary) Seriously the secret to the perfect spouse started long before 34 years ago. You pray and ask God to lead you to the person He wants you to marry.

It's time to get packing up for home and back to our hectic lives, work, children, elderly parents. Thank you Kathy and Dick for a great time.

Beautiful private location

  • 5 of 5

This is just what the doctor ordered! This cabin is very spacious and private with an abundance of wildlife. Spend a day exploring the beautiful bluffs and surrounding areas and come back to a quiet and relaxing cabin. OR spend the time here listening to wildlife, reading, or sitting by a camp fire in total peace. This cabin will meet the needs of anyone wanting a getaway! I highly recommend this spot! Not to mention Kathy and Dick are amazing to work with. They are both very friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make the stay enjoyable.

Clean, Beautiful, and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I went to Wisconsin for a mini vacation where we were looking to hike and kayak. This cabin was the perfect location. It's very close to the state park where we were able to do lots of hiking and it also had many river access points close by where we could put in kayaks. The cabin is also just a short 15 minute drive from town. We would definitely recommend staying here, thanks Kathy!

Unplug and Relax

  • 5 of 5

Kathy,

Thank you for sharing your property. The cabin was just what we needed to unplug and relax. It exceeded our expectations. You and Richard are truly blessed with the gift of hospitality. The cabin is warm and welcoming and your efforts to make our stay enjoyable were appreciated – and we learned that vanilla keeps gnats away!

Don’t be surprised if we’re back!

Beautiful Cabin in the country

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this cabin. We only stayed 2 nights but it was so relaxing that it felt much longer. It was delightful to barbecue our dinner and eat on the deck, watching the birds and rabbits and deer. We saw so many types of birds. The cabin was clean and comfortable and Kathy has it decorated so cute. The kitchen is well appointed and even furnished with fresh eggs from her chickens. We spent a day at nearby Wyalusing State Park - such a beautiful view from the trails through the bluffs overlooking the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers. We didn't want to leave. Definitely my kind of "camping".

Peaceful and cozy

  • 5 of 5

This property is a charming cabin away from the crowds and noise of town. It sits on a beautiful pastoral piece of land that is meticulously maintained. Kathy is a wonderful host, answering all questions in a timely manner but not being intrusive at all! She welcomes guest with farm fresh eggs in the fridge and coffee to get the days started. The cabin itself had everything you'd need to feel comfy and secluded. Lots of light and windows for bird watching and plenty of blankets are there to wrap up in while you read a book or watch the birds. There's also a nice firepit with plenty of wood to make a lovely bonfire in the evenings. Loved this clean, cozy little cabin!

Owner's Response: Chris, I admire your positive attitude! It rained both days of your visit, which was to be spent out of doors, you created plan 'B' and I love that you had a good time at the cabin. I hope you get a chance to return. You are welcome here anytime! Kathy

Our “Go To” Place when in the area!

  • 5 of 5

We love this little, secluded hideaway. Both years we’ve stayed we’ve been greeted by Northern Orioles, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks (9 males this year), Cardinals, Hummingbirds and more! Nice kitchen appliances and comfortable mattress. (Or maybe I was just dog tired from hiking). Speaking of hiking, make sure you take the short hike to the waterfall. It’s lovely!

No internet for my iPad but got along fine using the smartphone. Thanks, Kathy. We’ll be back.
