The vibe at Log Cabin Retreat
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
When we arrived we met with Penny and Phil who showed us around the farm including the campsites and the cabin suite that we stayed in. The farm features a cornucopia of flowers, chickens, an amiable dog and a fine horse-tire swing named Albert. We spent most of our time hiking through the pine forest, perusing the many flower varietals and swinging my 4 year old daughter under an ancient oak tree that Penny delightfully named Victoria (partner to Albert the horse-tire swing).
For this stay we stayed in the Log Cabin Retreat. In our space we had a spacious bed, private bathroom, mini-fridge, microwave and access to the basement great room. It was a great escape from the heat and humidity of a Wisconsin summer's day.
We spent the early evening lounging at campsite #2 where we cooked a feast amidst the forest. We definitely want to come back to experience a night out in the woods next time we're in the area. Phil and Penny left us to our devices until sunset when Phil lit an epic bon fire where we enjoyed each other's company.
A highlight of our stay came the next morning. After we slept the night in our spacious bed, we woke and cooked breakfast on the big table under the green house-turned trellis. While we were enjoying our oats at the farm table, Penny and Phil rolled in on their tandem bicycle. They proceeded to harvest flowers for celebrations in the area.
P.S. You're just a short drive from the famed New Glarus Brewery. Make sure you stop by. Enjoy a few beers and bring some back for your delightful hosts.
We stayed for two nights in the log cabin while attending Canoecopia in Madison. We enjoyed a very clean, quiet bedroom, bathroom and living room in the basement of the cabin. Penny was very helpful providing recommendations for restaurants.
