Absolutely Charming, Beautiful Guest House

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to say enough about this beautiful home. It is beautiful and meticulous. Everything is indicative of a bygone era. The entire home is tastefully decorated and super clean. I traveled here with three girlfriends for a long weekend get away. As we pulled up we knew right away that we had chosen the perfect accommodations. We had a great time walking into town to shop and eat but I think our most favorite part of vacation and the Deurst Guest House was that front porch you see in the picture. We spent HOURS every day sitting on the porch, talking and laughing, eating and drinking. We cannot wait to go back! Thank you, Jane, for sharing your beautfiul home with us. It will be added to our favorite memories list!

Absolutely the best!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what an amazing home! This was our 9th annual Siblings Outing and we all agreed the Duerst Guest House is the best we have stayed in. This home has charm and character and makes you feel like a trip down memory lane. One of the first things we all noticed was how clean it was and all the kitchen supples. Jane goes the extra mile to make sure your stay is one you will talk about for years to come. She stopped to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. We assured her that everything from the large amount of fluffy towels and linens to the well supplied kitchen, plus all the comfy beds and nooks for family visiting were perfect. My favorite was the front porch! She graciously answered all our questions about this amazing home's history and the beautiful way it is decorated.I could go on all night, but I think you can figure out that 4 Sisters and a Brother think that Jane and her beautiful home are a dream come true for anyone looking for the perfect place to stay!

Spacious with a cozy home comfort

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed our stay in New Glarus. We felt well cared for in the Duerst Guest House. One thing we would have enjoyed was a larger selection of board games for adults or all ages. We would recommend this home to any friends wishing to stay in the area.

We will be back~

  • 5 of 5

Came here with high school girlfriends for our birthdays. We were blown away at how charming the Duerst House is. It was clean and cozy. We loved sitting around the kitchen table chatting and eating (a lot of cheese). We had a bonfire out back. It was the perfect place for the five of us to stay. I would highly recommend coming here. We walked into town and ate some great food and visited quaint shops. You can tell the owner of the Duerst house takes a lot of pride in this home and it shows. Already looking at planning a trip back in the fall.

Best equipped VRBO house EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

Six girlfriends enjoyed this house . Plenty of room for everyone - comfortable beds and plenty of them. We found more excellent quality towels, pillows and coverlets than all the houses we've stayed in combined! Kitchen had everything, including Keurig coffee and sweetener and creamer. Bathrooms were stocked with soap and shampoo and plenty of toilet paper. Nice big flat screen TV. Very efficient central AC was really appreciated on a warm weekend. Location is amazing - walking distance to town, restaurants and the Sugar River Bike Trail (it was a real treat to walk there on beautiful mornings filled with birdsong!). Even had the rare pleasure of meeting Jane, the delightful owner. We are pleased to highly recommend this fabulous house to anyone visiting the New Glarus area!!
