About the property

Secluded, Romantic, Family Friendly And Cozy, Last House In The Valley.

Enjoy the privacy of the outdoors and be close to La Crosse for convenience!

Here you can 'get away' from the world and enjoy the cozy and secluded comfort of the country. This is the last house in the valley and offers a serene view of the coulee. Deer and turkey will find their way to the field below the house and you will have the perfect sitting area to watch them feed and play.

In the winter, pack your cold weather wear and go for a walk along the creek or up the logging trail for a view of the coulee below. Bring your snowshoes for a winter walk. Or if you prefer, go sledding on the hill in front of the house. (sleds provided). What ever you choose to do, even if you stay indoors, you will enjoy the serenity of the valley.

If you like to ski, we are located just a few minutes from Mt. La Crosse.

If you are snowmobilers, the state trail is located less than a mile from the house and you can drive your snowmobile to the trail or drive your trailer to the trail, park and hop on from there.

In warmer weather, you can enjoy walks along the creek looking for fish and beavers or take a walk up the logging trail and see if you can spot a deer or other wildlife. Pack a picnic lunch and sit down by the creek and enjoy the sounds of water flowing over the rocks and the other sounds of nature.

At night, sit around the fire pit to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

If you want to venture out, La Crosse, Coon Valley, Westby and Viroqua are just a few miles away and offer various fun activities, dining and unique shopping. Or if you are looking for a drive and shopping through Amish country you are close to that as well.

Historic downtown La Crosse also offers a wide array of dining venues, theatre, live music, art galleries, shopping and bars.

Our home is nicely located close to the city whether you’re coming for a getaway, to meet family and friends, or to enjoy one of the local events or festivals such as Applefest, Riverfest, Oktoberfest, Irishfest, Syttende Mai, Norskedalen, The Beer, Wine and Cheese Festival, The State Track and Field competition, Westby Ski Jump , or to visit Family and Friends at UW-La Crosse, Viterbo College, or Western Wisconsin Technical College, we are just a short drive into town.

We are excited to announce that we added a new Bedroom and a beautiful new bathroom in the lower level. The total for our home is now 5 Bedrooms with 2 King and 3 queen beds, and also, a queen size pull out sofa bed in the lower level. There are three bathrooms, one on the main level, one in the master bedroom and a spacious new bathroom located in the lower level.

Why Joan and Jerry chose Stoddard

This property is located on Joan's original family homestead. Joan's great, great grandparents came to Wisconsin from Germany and moved into Chipmunk Coulee in the late 1800's. Her Great Grandparents farmed this land and lived in the coulee, raising 7 sons. The historic hay barn that is located next to the house was built by her great grandfather and a neighbor in the early 1900's. The 10 acres of property was originally part of the family land and we are happy it can stay in the family! This land has been in the family for years and has provided us all with a lifetime of memories! We look forward to sharing the magic of Chipmunk Coulee with you!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

What is unique is that our last name is Unser, which in German means 'our'. We hope you enjoy your stay at Unser Haus!

Beautiful, well-kept home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 days with our son, our daughter and three grandchildren. They loved playing on the huge lawn and roasting marshmallows at the fire pit. The kitchen was well-equipped for cooking, and we also made burgers on the gas grill. The house is large enough that we could all have our own space. Thank you to the owners! We would definitely recommend this home!

comfy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the beautiful property. We used every bit of the place from the lawn, trail, grill, puzzles, barn patio- fire ring, to even the soccer balls! We hope to get back soon! You'll love it, too!

Breathtaking view, spotless home

  • 5 of 5

We spent Memorial Day weekend at the Rock Inn. The space was perfect for our group. Joan suggested the fish fry at Fox Hollow golf course and it was superb. We enjoyed a boat tour on the Mississippi and the children's museum. Such a short drive to Lacrosse. The a.c. kept up despite the 95+ temps. We also went swimming in the Mississippi at a nearby county park and really enjoyed that experience.

Best annual cabin trip thus far!

  • 5 of 5

There are 6 of us who meet up annually in the area every year. My brother and four of our friends all gather to catch up and have a week relaxing. We are from Minneapolis, Milwaukee and Chicago. By far, this is the best location we have rented. Spacious, comfortable, beautiful scenery and open spaces. The hosts are friendly and incredibly accommodating. I would recommend this location any time. Thank you!!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee AU$33.98
Additional Guest Fee AU$27.19 per person per night

During the major holidays, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Christmas, New Years, Easter, 4th of July, we require a 3 nights stay (usually being Friday through Monday). This allows for us to have time with our own family.

We have had several large gatherings at our home/property. If you are planning a large gathering or special event at the house, there will be an additional fee. We must be notified about the gathering at the time of booking, and also need to know the number of people that will be attending. Also, depending on the size of the group and due to the house having a septic system, we may ask you to rent a porta-potty for your event.

Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in staying only one night during the week!

If you cancel your reservation 30 days before arrival, you will be credited the entire amount minus processing fees.
