Hidden in the Wisconsin Driftless lies your 27-acre off-grid paradise, less than an hour from Madison’s west side via Hwy 151. Find peace in your quiet cabin, surrounded by nature that thrives on this spectacular mix of forest, meadow, creek, wetland, and tillable (currently rented for crop income).
Watch birds and grazing deer while you sip coffee on your sunny three-season porch, overlooking the creek. Walk your woods, pasture, and meadow on over a mile of cleared foot trails that wind through vibrant prairie grasses, wildflowers, and a diverse forest with hickory, oak, walnut, and apple trees.
The spacious cabin is comfortable and inviting with lots of windows and natural light. A propane refrigerator, cookstove, and heater provide simple conveniences and the cabin is fully wired, ready for your generator. The bedroom receives ample morning sun and there’s room for guests in the large sleeping loft, overlooking the main room below. A steel roof and good insulation protect the cabin from the elements and the Danish-made wood stove kicks out plenty of heat to comfortably sustain you in the cold months.
Hunters will love the deer, turkey, pheasant, and small game, while wildlife enthusiasts will marvel at the songbirds, raptors, and other fauna who flourish in this unique sanctuary. Bordered by land belonging to dedicated QDM hunters, this parcel is a thoroughfare with good cover for a thriving local deer herd that forages here for seasonal food and often beds down in the tall grasses.
You’re only a short drive to nearby Mineral Point, named by Smithsonian Magazine as one of the 20 best small towns to visit. Known for its thriving arts community, Mineral Point is home to numerous historic sites, art galleries, painter’s and sculptor’s studios, an opera house, a selection of terrific restaurants, a unique microbrewery, and the lively arts education center known as Shake Rag Alley.
Find refuge in the peace of nature. Take spring walks under a canopy of apple blossoms. Fish the Pecatonica River, just 1/3-mile South of your front gate. Doze peacefully to the creek’s slow trickle on a calm, summer afternoon. Gather hickory and walnuts, wild raspberries, and morels while an orchestra of birds serenades you. Enjoy warm campfires as you marvel at the curtain of endless stars overhead. Hike the trails under majestic trees, ablaze in vibrant, fall color.
This is your private sanctuary, away from the bustle of the world.
