The Garden Cottage at Meadowlark Ridge

Located on a secluded ridgetop, Meadowlark Ridge is just six miles west of Viroqua, Wisconsin. You'll find everything you need for a comfortable stay in this one-room cottage, including a king-sized bed, small kitchen, flat-screen TV, DVD player and walk-in tile shower. The Garden Cottage is located next to the owner's home, yet it is still private and quiet, with beautiful perennial gardens around the house and cottage and a raised-bed veggie garden. With 360 degree views of the skyline and set between two valleys, you will love the quiet location, dark skies and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Our cropland and all surrounding land is farmed organically.  

The cottage comes with quality linens, towels and soap; a kitchen with two-burner stove, microwave/convection oven and refrigerator; all utensils for cooking; coffee/tea; free Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV with a DVD player and streaming Netflix. There are several good breakfast restaurants in Viroqua.

The cottage is air conditioned and has a large walk-in tile shower in the full bath. There is a comfortable king-sized bed with high quality linens and blankets. The cottage is 13 miles from the Mississippi River at Genoa, and close to several county parks and trout streams. We are located near several Amish communities that welcome visitors to their homes where you can buy homemade furniture, baked goods, maple syrup, greenhouse plants and quilts. There's great hiking, bird watching, biking and canoeing/kayaking within a 10 to 45 minute drive.

Relax with a massage during your stay at The Garden Cottage. Wayne is a licensed massage therapist (LMT) who has been helping clients since 2009 in our home as well as in office and chiropractic settings. Sessions take place in our home. The room is large and comfortable with beautiful views. Wayne practices an integrated approach to massage - combining deep tissue and trigger point release with relaxation in each session. He believes stress relief is equally important and hopes that each client leaves with a profound sense of peace.

The Garden Cottage is licensed with the State of Wisconsin. Nightly and weekly rates include 5.5% state tax.  Guests can read reviews and book the cottage through, or, or contact us through our website.
