Crawford County is located in southwest Wisconsin in the heart of the unique Driftless Region. This small area that includes portions of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, and Illinois was bypassed by glaciers in the last Ice Age. As a result, the area avoided the flattening effect of glaciers on the land. Glacial runoff created many river valleys, steep hills, and limestone bluffs throughout the region. The county is bordered on the west by the Mississippi River, the Wisconsin River to the south, and the Kickapoo River divides the county north to south.
Whether you bring your family, have a girls weekend, or come with friends you are bound to enjoy some cowboy life.

Cowboy retreat! Hot Tub Horses Hike
Comfy lodge & land rich in history
Cody Ranch is a beautiful piece of property nestled in the gorgeous Driftless Region of Wisconsin. Ed was a friendly and attentive host. I enjoyed learning the history of his multi-generational farm. The lower level of the Bunk House was very spacious and clean and would comfortably fit a crew much larger than ours. Beds were large, comfortable, and had nice linens. We appreciated the full kitchen with ample cookware, dishes, and applicances - and we were able to make full meals during our stay. The fresh eggs from the Ranch's hens were an added bonus. Everything was very homey. We didn't get a chance to hike the property due to other events we attended, but it looks like a really nice area to go on a hike. We brought apples from home to charm Hot Rod the quarter horse and his sidekick donkey, Charlie. They were sweeties to hang out with. We visited Apple Fest in nearby Gays Mills. I highly recommend visiting this part of beautiful Wisconsin and lodging at Cody's Ranch. We had such a nice trip to this area, we are likely to return.

Cowboy retreat! Hot Tub Horses Hike
Comfy cabin with a view
This is the best get-away! Cowboy Cody is an awesome host and so friendly and generous. Beds are comfortable. Beautiful view and nice rockers on the deck to enjoy morning coffee. The fire pit had plenty of wood and comfy chairs. The hot tub was convenient and luxurious. Two clean bathrooms and a stocked kitchen.
