About the property

4 Bedroom fully remodeled Farmhouse on 117acre Organic Farm - Full of old Charm

Ridge Top Hideaway is a secluded 117 acre organic farm with amazing ridge top views in all directions. It has been my childhood dream to own this farm and to share it with my family and friends. When you drive down the 1/4 mile long driveway, you are being transformed into different time, when life was simpler. You can just feel peace, quiet, total serenity in the air when you arrive. I can't fully explain it, you just have to experience it. If you are looking for a great place to kick back and relax, you have found it. Sit on the large covered porch and watch the sunset, sit on the paver patio and enjoy a meal and a fire, or take a walk through the 2 1/2 miles of trails in the woods or down the country roads. If you enjoy wildlife watching, the farm has many Whitetail Deer, Wild Turkey, and Birds. We have totally remodeled the main farm house, updating everything while still keeping that old farmhouse feel. The house has 4 bedrooms; 1 with a Queen Bed, 1 with a Full Size Bed, 1 with a Twin, and 1 with 2 Singles. Then we also have a little room with a single and two sofa sleepers, 1 queen, and 1 twin. The house has all stainless steel appliances, washer and dryer, and is fully furnished with all of your kitchen and bathroom needs.

About Chad Williams

Hello, Visitors! I'm Chad Williams, a 38 year old, self employed Landscaping/Excavating Contractor. I have been in business for myself for 18 years. I have lived in the Viroqua area my whole life. I have four wonderful little boys, Carter, Conner, Carson, and Caden; along with their wonderful mother, Kristi. It was my childhood dream to own the farm that Ridge Top Hideaway is located on. I worked on this farm since I was 10 years old, milking, haying, and brush hogging. In 2013, my childhood dream came true and I was able to purchase the property. I have hope that you all will enjoy this farm as much as my family and I do.

Chad Williams purchased this farmhouse in 2013

  • 5 of 5

The kids loved our hike in the woods, saw frogs and birds and even a coyote! Cooked s’mores

On the paved patio and ate outside after grilling. Beautiful property and updated house. Close enough to the cute town of Viroqua and lots of trout streams.

Overall very nice stay and we will stay here again on our next trip to the driftless!

Beautiful home and property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful last-minute family vacation and Chad was very accommodating and quick to respond. The house is lovely and the kids enjoyed watching the ducks! There is so much to do within a short distance, as well. We hiked two long days in Wildcat Mountain State Park and the Kickapoo Valley Reserve - just gorgeous! Hoping to make a trip back to canoe the Kickapoo River soon. Highly recommend Chad's farmhouse for a respite from daily life.

Beautiful, comfortable location for family get-together

  • 5 of 5

The location is gorgeous. The renovated farmhouse is beautiful, homey, comfortable, very clean, and well equipped, so that we were able to find virtually anything we needed. Chad and those assisting him went out of their way to welcome us and meet our needs. All of the above made our family get-together comfortable, easy, and pleasant. One thing to be aware of is that the bathroom is on the first floor and the bedrooms are on the second floor, at the top of a slightly steep staircase (unlighted unless you leave lights on in the hall and downstairs) that takes a sharp turn in the middle (with good-sized triangular steps at the turning point). However, if there's anyone in your group who can't navigate the stairs, the living area/office area on the first floor has two pull-out beds, a queen and a twin, with sliding pocket doors that can close off that area for privacy. We didn't see recycling bins in the kitchen and thought of taking our recycling home, then decided to put it in one of the outdoor trash cans for the owners to recycle in whatever ways are possible in their community. Really we had a wonderful stay--many happy memories--and would rent the house again in a second.

The Viroqua, Vernon County, area (also known as the Driftless Region) has much to offer. Just about every weekend, within a 45 minute drive from our location, there is a festival of some sort going on. Some examples are: Moral Mushroom Festival, Butterfest, Applefest, Cranberry Fest, Fall Fest, Wild West Days, Vernon County Fair, Westby Ski Jump, and that just names a few. We would be more than happy to provide you with a full list of events and theme dates. If wine is your thing, we have local wineries that offer tasting rooms and tours. The outdoor farmers market is always popular. It runs every Saturday from 8am-12pm, May through October. After the market, you can have lunch at one of Viroqua's fine restaurants: Dave's Pizza, Viking Inn, Blackhawk Grill, Driftless Cafe and the Viroqua Food Coop to name a few. We are in the heart of Amish country, so drive down just about any country road and you can find small road stands where you can purchase furniture, produce, and baked goods, all made by local amish. If you are up for a great evening meal, be sure to check out some of the area's fine dining: Old Towne Inn, Viking Inn, Kickapoo Inn, and my personal favorite, The Driftless Cafe where the Tenderloin Steak is to die for (along with everything else on their menu!) Chef Luke Zahm prides himself on using all local & organic ingredients. You will not be disappointed. Did someone say fishing? We have a few small lakes, the Mississippi (30 miles), and some of the best trout streams in the nation. This area was named in the top 5 in the nation in Trout Fishing Magazine. Hunting your thing? There are a lot of public hunting places nearby for small game, white tail deer, and wild turkey. After all of these activities, many people want to stay right at our farm and relax. When you are at Ridge Top Hideaway, it is like you are stepping back in time to the good old days when life was simpler. We have a fully remodeled four bedroom farmhouse with a large covered porch, 450sqft Paver Patio for grilling and enjoying meals outside. We also have about 2 1/2 miles of trails cut through our 47 acres of woods. This is great for a realizing walk, viewing wildlife, or cross country skiing in the winter.
