About the property

Unique Carriage House nestled in the woods within the Driftless Region

Located in the Driftless area of Southwestern Wisconsin, “The Carriage House” is the ideal vacation get away for you to get off the grid, and become one with nature. Our Guest House awaits you. Check out our Guest Reviews and Book Today!

For fishing, we have world-class trout streams. You can don your waders and hope to outwit a brook trout on a cool foggy morning on The “Big Green” river. Just over the river in Iowa, Pikes Peak towers over the junction of the Wisconsin and Mississippi river. The view from this vantage point, is breathtaking, and exhibits some of the most unique topography in the Midwest.

The Driftless area is part of the Mississippi Flyway. Many birds fly over the river in large flocks, going north in spring and south in autumn. The great diversity of the Driftless Wisconsin area means something to suit the taste of every visitor. You can simply enjoy the peace and beauty of the countryside with a good book, a cup of coffee from a local roaster, or a glass of wine from a local vineyard. You can get on your bike and wind your way through magnificent scenery. You can shop for art, antiques, handmade furniture, artisan cheeses, or locally-grown foods.

About The Ridge Rental, LLC., Wayne & Tammy, Managing Members

We are a family owned business and want to share our passion for nature, art and hospitality. We believe that “time off the grid” is vital to well being. Living our values is important to us and we want to share it with you.

Why The Ridge Rental, LLC., Wayne & Tammy, Managing Members chose Woodman

Having traveled the Wisconsin and Mississippi river basins many times, we have always liked the feel of this area. This property provides our family with a unique country getaway. Many memories have been made here. We are secluded in a natural setting with easy travel to unique small towns.

What makes this guest house unique

Through our love of Nature, Landscape Architecture, Design and Sustainability we created “The Carriage House”. We used reclaimed wood from a late 1800’s barn and reclaimed wood floors from homes built in the states capital. This creates a warm and visually relaxing atmosphere. Relaxing in the window seat has been one of our favorite past times. Also, gazing at the stars through the skylights at night has been a traveler favorite.

Outside, the topography of the area is considered the “Driftless area of

Wisconsin”. This unique landscape features many ridges and valleys that is perfect for wildlife habitat, hiking, boating, fishing, biking etc… our property has a perfect blend of trails and wooded areas. The closeness to the Wisconsin River and the Mississippi River junction has made venturing off the property equally rewarding.

Wonderful cabin in the woods

Weekend stay for our family was wonderful. Charming cabin and great property. Kids loved exploring in the woods and finding the frozen waterfall and stream.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Great place for an escape. Bring your own food....the places to go out to eat are limited. That does not mean it was not nice. It is an amazing place however we would have been better off if we planned our meals before we came. The amenities are plenty with all the kitchen utensils provided. The place was clean and well decorated with awesome architecture. We would definitely come here again.

Cozy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I came for a weekend and wished we could have stayed for at least a week! The carriage house is a wonderfully cozy space -- elegantly rustic. We could not have asked for a better space. The bed was super comfortable. The kitchen had all of the basic cooking/baking utensils/pans we needed to cook the meals we wanted. The Wi-Fi was a bit spotty during our visit. We told the manager, and after he fixed it, it worked for a few hours before cutting out again. However, at that point, we were ready to play games anyway. We played Battleship, Mastermind, and Trivial Pursuit, but ran out of time before we could get to Boggle. So many good game options, and we would have started one of the puzzles if we'd been there for more days. We also missed out on using the grill and fire pit, but we were so excited that these were possibilities. Absolutely a magical weekend!

Perfect anniversary getaway home base

  • 5 of 5

The Carraige House was perfect for our anniversary weekend getaway. We had a couple questions on arrival, and the owners responded quickly. We had complete privacy, but knew we’d be taken care of if we had any issues. The house was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. We spent the days hiking in Wyalusing and Pikes Peak Park in Iowa- Iowa parks are free! Check out Promise Land winery tasting, as well!

Relaxing, Peaceful, Romantic, Reinvigorating!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Carriage House! We stayed there for 10 days on our honeymoon, and enjoyed every moment!

(1) We appreciated the setting in the woods and country. There were plenty of cornfields nearby. We enjoyed walking/ running on the gravel roads and the hiking trails on the property. The house itself is tucked in the woods.

(2) We also loved the interior decorations, including the old barn wood trim, the window seat, the island, and the rustic barn style.

(3) The kitchen had all the appliances and cooking ware that we needed. We also ate quite a few meals on the back deck and used the grill once.

(4) The caretaker was available the few times that we needed him, but kept to himself otherwise.

If you're looking for a quite, relaxing, and peaceful getaway, you should definitely consider the Carriage House.
