Overview

About the property

1100 square foot, 3 BR Amish log cabin on 2 acres hidden away in a quiet valley

Whether you enjoy the solitude of the quiet valley, relish listening to babbling brook that you drove through on your way into the property, or are relaxing in the outdoor hot tub, this private cabin is the best getaway in the Driftless Area.

Guests can simply enjoy the quiet valley, bird-watching, and relaxing. Or they can venture over to the Mississippi River to watch eagles soar, enjoy world-class boating and fishing. You may want to visit the 2500-acre Rush Creek Natural Area or explore one of the many small towns for local festivals, antiques, or natural beauty. Take a trip down the Great River Road to see the majesty of the Ole Miss.

After a busy day of exploring and enjoying the area, guests can relax around the outdoor fire pit, soothe away the day in the outdoor hot tub, or simply enjoy the sights and sounds with a cold beverage from the front porch.

About Brent Foss

My wife and I bought our cabin for a peaceful retreat from our busy lives. We really love the setting and the space. This is our personal cabin - not a timeshare or commercial venture. It's well-appointed with our books, movies, music, art, and personal touches. We think it's a special place in a very special region of Wisconsin. We can't wait to share it with you.

Brent Foss purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Brent Foss chose De Soto

The Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin is simply amazing! The rolling hills and secret valleys hide small streams, abundant wildlife, and local folklore. Come visit and learn why we think this area is one of the most beautiful in the Midwest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a perfect place to spend a girls bachelorette weekend. We came in from Chicago, Ames, Paulina and Decorah Iowa. Despite plans to go out, we couldn’t resist staying in and making good food, drinking Moscow Mules on the porch, lounging in the hot tub, laughing and telling stories. What a relaxing getaway! Our random Saturday adventure led us to a market along the road and a recommendation to hike the Mississippi River Conservancy where we had a lovely picnic overlooking the River Gorge. Wine tasting at Sugar Creek winery and a swim in a “no swimming” zone before coming back for the evening. Thanks for sharing your beautiful place with us.

Beautiful place for a secluded getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to get away from the big city for a relaxing weekend and this was the perfect place! The property was beautiful and we enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub, building fires in the wood stove, and hiking with our dog. I highly recommend this cabin for anyone who is looking for a peaceful retreat!

Relaxing Winter Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was pretty much perfect for a relaxing winter weekend. The fireplace really keeps the cabin toasty, and sipping coffee in the hot tub while the snow is coming down was a great way to start the day! Its a picture perfect cabin in an ideal wooded setting. We are already talking about a return trip in the summer

Went on a duck in Wisconsin

  • 5 of 5

Me and 3 of my friends went on a duck hunt on the Mississippi from Connecticut. Long drive. We stayed here at Secluded Cabin in the woods. What a great place. Clean and quiet with wood burning stove. Just like a hunting camp with all the luxuries of home. While the duck hunting wasn't so great the cabin we stayed in was awesome.
