Vireo Cabin

Vireo – named for the warbling vireo that nested on the porch – is the most spacious and home-like cabin at Driftless Creek. Vireo is a private modern cabin in a wooded setting, with hiking trails on-site, close to Viroqua. Vireo features furnishings in aqua-blue, lime green, and shades of gray. Highlights of Vireo include ample seating around a wood stove, a piano, porches on 3 sides (one screened-in), and a fully equipped kitchen with seating for 4 at the kitchen bar. Vireo sleeps 7.

 

The space

Driftless Creek offers light-filled, clean-lines, full-amenity modern cabins, each private from the other, nestled in the woods 15 minutes from Viroqua. Down a scenic dirt road, and up a steep private driveway, you will enter our 75 acres of ridgetop forest between two spring-fed streams. We offer 2 miles of trails on property for hiking, mountain-biking, or snowshoeing. Adjacent state natural areas on 3 sides enhance the remote wilderness feeling.  The quiet is restorative and the dark nights are perfect for star-gazing. This really might be the place where you pick up a book or a well-maintained ukulele or guitar we provide, or let the hours go by in a hammock on the screened porch.


We are known for top-quality comfort, including memory foam mattresses with 100% cotton and down bedding, glass and tile showers with a heated bathroom fan, Jøtul wood stoves inside and fire rings outside with seasoned firewood at the ready, and heating and cooling options that keep you cozy no matter the season. Our wifi is commercial grade. Our water is sourced from a deep well and filtered. And our kitchens are stocked with everything you need, including a dishwasher, coffee maker, coffee grinder, and local coffee beans. Our cabins are sparkling clean and we guarantee that everything on premises is fully operational.


Driftless Creek offers a place for you to gather yourself, your family, your friends, and even your pets, surrounded by the abundance and peace of nature and all that the area has to offer. Whether it is the beautiful rolling hills, the trout streams, the inspired food offerings, or the charming towns, we look forward to hosting you in the Driftless area of Wisconsin.
