Located on a quiet ridgetop, The Garden Cottage at Meadowlark Ridge is just six miles west of Viroqua, Wisconsin. You'll find everything you need for a comfortable stay, including a king-sized bed, kitchen, gas grill, large bathroom, walk-in tile shower, a flat-screen TV with a DVD player & movies, and now with high speed internet. All linens, soaps, coffee, tea, and kitchen utensils are provided. The cottage is perfect for couples, as well as persons coming to fish the nearby trout streams.

The space

The Garden Cottage is located next to the owner's home, yet it is still private, with beautiful perennial gardens around the house and cottage and a raised-bed veggie garden we share with guests. With amazing 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.
We provide everything you need for a comfortable stay in this one-room cottage - quality linens & towels; a kitchen with stove, microwave/convection oven, coffee maker, tea pot, toaster and large refrigerator; all utensils for cooking; coffee/tea; free satellite Wi-Fi; a flat-screen TV and a DVD player with a selection of movies. There is a new Weber gas grill on the covered porch. Guests are welcome to use the washer and dryer in the kitchen area.
The cottage is air conditioned and has a large walk-in tile shower in the full bath. There is a very comfortable king-sized bed with high quality linens and blankets. The bed has a heated mattress pad so you can enjoy a nice warm bed in the colder months.
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. You may accompany your partner while they receive a massage, relaxing with a book if you choose. 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. Sorry but we have a no-pet policy. The cottage is perfect for two adults; we cannot accept guests under 18 years old.

Guest access

Feel free to roam around our 9-acre property and enjoy the views and extensive perennial and vegetable gardens. In the summer we share our fruits and vegetables with guests.

Interaction with guests

Didn't end up staying because location was too hard to reach and no cabs in the area ran after 9, but very clean and beautiful.

Response from Wayne:
Kristyn, our cottage is very accessible, just one paved mile off the main highway six miles outside of Viroqua. Since you drove here in your car, we have no idea why you needed a cab. We are sorry that, like you said, you didn't plan ahead for your need to have late-night cab service to your lodgings. We tried to help, but we're sorry that we could not accommodate your needs.

Great hospitality. Very beautiful surroundings with hills and trees and wildlife. Very quiet and away from it all. Wi-fi works well, but not every cell service works in the area as one would expect in a secluded setting. Kitchen has all you will need; microwave, stovetop, full size fridge, utensils, pots, pans, dishes,etc. Well equipped. Has a nice porch setting overlooking hills and silence but for nature. It may be off the main path, but if you're looking to get away from everything, this is the spot to go. Unless you hate hummingbirds!

This cottage is absolutely wonderful. It's very new, very clean, and plenty large enough for two. One can sit on the front porch and have coffee as the sun rises over the distant ridge. It is a very short drive (or bicycle ride) to Viroqua, a lovely town. We were very please will our experience, and plan on returning.

This cottage is set away from any noises except the voices of nature. Wayne and Sherie respect your space, but when you get an opportunity to share with them, you could not find nicer people. Just a few miles from Viroqua, we stopped at the coop for all our meals. We motorcycled some of the finest roads in the country, ( I am an avid motorcyclist) and never was more than 30 radius from the cottage. My partner Anna, and myself will not rent anywhere else if we are in the Viroqua area.

This was the second time I stayed at Wayne and Sherrie's cottage and it felt like home away from home. Sherrie and Wayne have always been very helpful, but also allow you to maintain your privacy if you want. The cottage is just big enough that you have room to move around and not trip over furniture, while feeling very cozy. It has a kitchenette that is fully stocked for cooking and dining. And the bathroom is very modern and functional. Thanks again for helping me have a relaxing weekend. Maybe next time I'll finally experience a weekend without rain! :)

Response from Wayne:
Hello Brett. Thanks for the nice review. Yesterday Wayne had a hard time connecting the cottage DVD player to the WiFi. It's a new player, but he had to reboot our router to get a connection. We probably have to replace the DVD player, but we really appreciate your private message about it. Let us know of any problems while you're here and we can troubleshoot the issue. The DNR is flying low in a bright yellow plane, spraying for gypsy moth, just above the tree tops. So much for planting my garden this morning . . .

Wayne & Sherrie opened The Garden Cottage in June, 2015 after retiring to Viroqua in 2014. They had been vacationing in Vernon County near Viroqua for 15 or so years and decided to make it their retirement home. They are excited to share the natural beauty of the area with you by offering their cottage and access to their property.
