A little slice of heaven near Sparta

5 on March 17, 2014

Sami, Maggie & I would just like to say we had the perfect weekend away together at your place. Staying in the Little House Cabin was cozy & quaint. What a wonderful sight to wake up to each morning, just outside our doorstep. We enjoyed your breakfast each day! The tasty meals got us started on the right foot for activity-filled days. Maggie just loved the openness of the property and the opportunity to run all over. We made it to The Rock somehow, and agreed that was worth the hike to get there. What a site! You certainly have a little slice of heaven near Sparta, and we were glad you let us share it with you for a weekend. Thanks again!

I just wanted to write you a quick note to let you know how much we loved our stay at your gorgeous farm. We had the best time. The kiddos loved your sweet animals. It is so cute to hear Bella tell her friends about Sox taking Vincents muffin! :) They loved the tubing, the wonderful walk and didnt even mind working! We devoured your delicious Granola. Thanks again for your warm hospitality. We look forward to hopefully seeing you this summer sometime!

Just wanted to let you know that we all had a wonderful time at Justin Trails. You have a beautiful property and the Paul Bunyon Cabin was cozy and comfortable. We sat outside after dinner and enjoyed watching the bats and fireflies. We could tell that the breakfast was filled with love. We really enjoyed your homemade goodies. I'm glad I snagged a bag of granola for home. It will bring back great memories of our trip there. The bacon was grilled to perfection. Everyone commented on how crunchy it was. Awesome! We will be back next year. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant. It was very nice meeting you.

Donna and Don, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you folks for your hospitality and the good time we had on our visit to Justin Trail Resorts a few weeks ago. We were so delighted to get that “end of the winter season” vacation in, with snow, and with our friends, before they had to return to Mexico. Thanks, Donna, for the personal cross-country ski lessons for Guadalupe. That helped her gain some confidence in being able to do something on skis, since she has had little luck trying to learn downhill. We hope to visit you again someday, whether it be summer or winter, in the near future. We loved everything about the Resort! I just recently finished the last of your tasty granola! Yummy!!! Best of health to both of you and your family, including all your companion creatures. We’ll see you again sometime. Take care!! Jim & Guadalupe (Aura and Jorge share our sentiments, as well!)

Innkeeper Response
I have an adult life long joy in cross-country skiing and absolutely love to teach anyone willing to try to learn this fun sport. Thank you for the kind words!


Great getaway for anyone1

We loved this place and plan to return. We both work at a B&B and because of this are pretty picky. We were very impressed. It's a great location with sleding,sking,snowshoeing in the winter and great bicycling in the summer. It's a short jaunt into LaCrosse to visit relatives although we really didn't want to leave. The breakfast was exceptional, loved the animals and the owners.. Donna even ran out to our car with some muffins for my Mother we were visiting in an Assisted Living facility (she loved them) The set-up is great for families and small groups. We plan on bringing friends back where we can visit in a sitting room/dining room area yet each have our own private suite to retire to. Highly recommend!!

Innkeeper Response
Your kind words are music to my ears! I look forward to visiting your inn soon.
