Come to enjoy a quiet retreat with wildlife, creek, prairie and woods. It is 10 miles to Wisconsin Dells, 7 miles to Portage, 35 minutes to Madison. It is 25 miles from Baraboo, the Big Cat Sanctuary, International Crane Foundation, and ten miles to Cascade Mountain skiing resort.

This is Bonnie Oaks, on the National Historic Registry for its artistic and literary history.

My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).


Bonnie Oaks has 72 wooded acres with 8 acres of restored prairie. It has a barred owl population and throughout the year, downy and red-headed woodpeckers, migratory indigo buntings, grosbeaks and the occasional scarlet tanager. This property belonged to the International Crane Foundation for ten years and was a study area for some of the first sand hill cranes in the state. The property has a creek running its length ( where canoes and kayaks can be launched) and is sanctuary to deer, turkeys, groundhogs, raccoons, black and grey and red and sometimes flying squirrels. I have had coyotes singing in the woods, but have never seen them or had them disturb any pets. What attracted me is the diversity of landscape - prairie, creek, woods, open space. I am hoping the little foxes return this spring to have their family in the woods.

Dostupno gostima

Guests can walk the woods and prairie. They can launch canoes and kayaks into Neenah Creek ( which is more like a river ). Since hunting and trapping seasons last from mid-September through mid-April, I prefer that people do not bring dogs here, as they scare the wildlife into harm's way. Also, with a wooded property, the chance that dogs could bring in ticks is a concern in Wisconsin.
Guests are welcome to walk on the trails. The log house has a screened porch that looks over the barns and open space to the creek.

I will be available as needed.

Ostale napomene

There are great restaurants in Wisconsin Dells. I am most familiar with The Cheeze Factory in Lake Delton which is famous for its food. Nearby, a mile north on the way to the Dells, The Pheasant Inn in Briggsville is a favorite.

No weapons of any kind are allowed on the property. This is a respect for all life property so no harm to any being here ( except mosquitoes ) and no take of wildlife or vegetation.

I discourage bringing pets of any kind for the security of the wildlife, the houses and the pets, themselves. This is hunting season, and the raccoons and coyotes who transit this property may get in conflict with a curious dog.

An option for dogs is boarding and grooming facility a walk down from my driveway, across the street. $18/night. It is called Precious Paws and has great indoor and outdoor exercise capabilities, and can be found online by putting their name into a search and Wisconsin.

At the request of some guests, I have instituted a new policy for recycling. I am providing 3 plastic bags for guests - the large black one in the waste basket for recycles. Please rinse plastic, metal, glass recycles and those can be mixed with paper recycles in the largest bag. The smaller bags are one for compost and one for actual garbage that cannot be recycled. This will help me extricate recycles from the rest and help the environment here.

There are trails through the woods for people to enjoy and woodland tree frogs and owls, deer and turkeys to keep you company.

It was wonderful to see women taking time together to enjoy each other's company. A woman who came here for the first time from Waukesha in April, and who has returned many times with her family, will be holding healing yoga retreats here starting in November if that interests you. Hope to see you all again - you were great guests!

The cabin is very nice. It is in a private area and the nature surrounding the cabin is wonderful.

The loghouse was just amazing and we had a very comfortable stay. The best part was the location and surrounding. And of course watching dears coming right to your doorsteps was another experience altogether. We will be back there for sure.

We brought our kayaks and spent our days on various nearby waterways. The log house was a perfect place to kick back in the evenings and enjoy the sounds of the woods. Deer crept up to the house at dusk to feed, in the morning a family of turkeys did the same. We also saw cranes. Patricia is very dedicated to nurturing all the wild animals on her acreage, and was a very sweet host. We had a lovely time.

I am a journalist, artist and wildlife / living earth activist. I write the Madravenspeak living wildlife column for the Capital Times online newspaper. It is published every other Sunday online and the entire archive of five and a half years of columns can be found on the Capital Times web site by putting Madravenspeak into the search box.

I am a poet, painter ( oils ), writer, and progressive activist for justice, peace, and respect for all life.

I have traveled to Europe many times, hitch-hiked across north Africa, visited Czechoslovakia, Hawaii, Mexico and Canada.

I cannot live without respect for farm animals, wildlife, pollinators, amphibians, and a climate that sustains life. I cannot live without healthy oceans, GMO labelling and an end to trapping and killing wildlife for recreation. I cannot live without bears, wolves, coyotes, cougars, jaguars, elephants, rhinos, lions and tigers. I cannot live without a healthy web of life that supports all life.
