The Inn at Lonesome Hollow is situated on 160 rural acres in Southwest Wisconsin's Driftless Area - a rugged, hilly part of the upper midwest that was unglaciated during the last ice age. Lonesome Hollow contains a completely private valley surrounded on three sides by hills that rise 300 feet above the valley floor. Part of our property extends up onto a ridgetop and offers almost two miles of private hiking trails. We are surrounded by hardwood forest. Wildlife abounds. The Inn contains three deluxe rooms, two large two-bedroom suites, and a modern two-bedroom cabin. All units have private baths and gas fireplaces. Four units have whirlpool tubs. Our area is very rural and has a growing Amish population. It is an area of rivers, streams, and forest. Hiking, biking, canoeing, bird watching, antiquing, and Amish shopping are popular area activities. We offer deluxe accomodations in a haven of natural wonder. We look forward to sharing Lonesome Hollow and this spledid area of Wisconsin with you.

Wonderful experience. Pete and Nora were the best in explaining the area and letting us know what to do and where to eat. Room was immaculate and every comfort was thought of. We are already planning our return visit. Thank you to Nora and Pete for a wonderful weekend.

This B&B sits on a beautiful piece of land, nestled in a collection of steep hills. We had a blast snowshoeing up and down the hills and all around the valley. The cabin we stayed in was very comfortable. Pet and Nora are great hosts, and Nora is a wonderful cook. We took one of her recipes home with us. Looking forward to my next visit.

I find myself in the area a couple of times each year. Whenever I'm coming this way I enjoy visiting Pete and Nora. As I turn onto Vance Road I find myself relaxing and by the time I reach The Inn I've left the world behind.The Garden Hideaway is my favorite room. It is at the back of the house with a private garden view. I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian and they easily accommodate my special diet. On my most recent trip I had the most wonderful breakfast. The main dish was an apple and cheese omelet. They also served a fruit plate that included oranges and berries on a bed of what appeared to be custard (but wasn't), sprinkled with pomegranate seeds and drizzled in chocolate. The pomegranate seeds added an unexpected burst of flavor. They have the gift of taking a regular dish and adding something unexpected. The views are beautiful and the setting is relaxing. The rooms are spacious and always clean. It's a great place to stay when traveling for business or just to getaway. I highly recommend a visit with Nora and Pete.

This is our third stay here in a year! We love the surroundings, the house, the breakfasts, and this time the cabin. It is so relaxing here. This time we brought a guest with us for their birthday, and drove the scenic roads in the area. Our guest loved it, too. We are seasoned B&Bers, so it takes a lot to impress us, and Pete and Nora know how to do that! Thanks for everything.
