We booked our stay at the Emerald Cabin at Stone Light Retreat just days before we were set to stay. We already had a night at another Hipcamp a few hours away and we thought Stone Light would be the perfect place to stay on our way back to the Twin Cities. Steve, the camp host, was flexible enough to get our cabin ready in short notice.

First, we love the Driftless Area. This unique place amongst the generally flat Upper Midwest is a charmer. The drive from the east to Stone Light was no different. As you get closer to Viroqua the rolling hills and endless farms turn to an undulating landscape. A Midwesterner might mistake them for mountains. It's simply one of my favorite landscapes in Wisconsin.

Stone Light's a truly unique place. Not just a few cabins and a campsite, but a space meant for a spiritual escape amidst the pristine landscape. From Merlin's Rock to Stone Circle, there is something to pique your mystical interest. With an almost four year old daughter, the wishing well and zen stone garden were the most memorable. We had to experience each multiple times.

The emerald cabin was spacious with just about everything you'd need for an off the grid weekend. The dwelling is situated atop a hill that descends towards an outhouse and fire pit. We cooked on the quaint porch of the cabin and ate dinner under lantern light. Before bed we lit a few candles and spent time as a family. Our daughter was excited to sleep in the loft space. I can say we all slept soundly in the uncomplicated space.
