About the neighbourhood
Vernon County is known for world-class trout fishing, with miles of public access and habitat improvements on the cold-water streams. Meadowlark Ridge is close to fishing on the Bad Axe River and Springville Creek, and a nice drive to the famous Timber Coulee Creek near Westby, Wisconsin. The Garden Cottage is perfectly suited for turkey hunters, trout enthusiasts and bikers.
The area is also known for an extensive organic food culture, with Organic Valley headquarters in nearby LaFarge, and many small-scale organic farms in the area. Visitors often seek out home-made items from the large Amish population.
There are great shops in Viroqua that cater to many interests, including books, bikes, fly fishing, fiber, antiques, art and music.
