This Wisconsin Ranch Is The Perfect Place To Get Away From It All
The Driftless Region of Wisconsin is one of the most gorgeous and underrated spots. The rolling hills and stunning scenery make it a perfect place to sit back and relax. There are tons of small towns just waiting to be explored and this amazing Wisconsin ranch is the perfect place to make your home base. Near the Kickapoo Valley Reserve, the ranch is surrounded by 8,600 protected acres of gorgeous lands for you to explore. With horses and llamas on site and wood cabins with large porches that invite you to linger, it’s easy to see why the owners call this their sanctuary.
The owners decided to start this ranch after a trip out west. Having grown up in the area, they knew the Driftless Region was the perfect spot for a Midwestern ranch. They quit their 9 to 5 jobs and at first, this was just a home to horses and really, really good cookies.
Eventually, the cabins were built and this ranch became everything you could want in an escape from the city.
They created something magical here in this wilderness of Southwestern Wisconsin. Folks who came to stay talk about the peace and quiet and feeling rejuvenated after just a few days. They talked about renewed spirits and being able to reset.
It's not difficult to understand the draw of this ranch. Everything here is intended to be the antithesis of life in the city.
Sit on your porch in the provided rocking chairs and be unplugged. Turn off your phone, forget about real life for a few days, and let nature soothe your mind.
With so many vacations planned to see and do and fit as much in as possible, Kickapoo Valley Ranch aims to do the opposite.
The rolling hills, the stunning vistas, and even the farm animals are all here to make your stay as relaxing and rejuvenating as possible.
It's near impossible to be stressed or upset in the face of the llamas and horses that call the ranch home.
The owners joke that the ranch offers "a whole lot of nothin'" but that doesn't apply to the cabins. Sure, there's no pool or playground, but there are spacious, welcoming, beautiful cabins with big, comfortable beds as well as sitting areas. It definitely is a place to get away from it all, but it could also be a stellar writers' retreat or weekend away with your knitting group. It's the relaxed pace that's important here.
One of the owners is famous for his baking, so much so that his cookies are one of the reasons people kept coming back. Now they're available for sale here on site and he has a bakery in Viroqua.
I feel calmer even just looking at the pictures of this beautiful ranch. But words and pictures really can't convey what a weekend away at Kickapoo Valley Ranch is truly like.
Wake up with the sun and a cup of coffee on your deck porch and while away the hours soaking in the peace and quiet of nature. Kickapoo Valley Ranch is a truly lovely and charming little spot nestled down in the Driftless Region that you just have to experience for yourself.
Kickapoo Valley Ranch is located at E11761 Co. Rd. P, La Farge, WI 54639. For more information and to make reservations, check out
