Round-Up: Farm Cottages

 


About this time every year, when the leaves are just starting to turn, I get a clockwork urge to spend a weekend on a farm. I’m not too picky about the particulars–chickens or cows, a sprawling apple orchard or tidy rows of vegetables–as long as there’s the possibility of a farm chore or two and plenty of pretty acreage to explore, leaves crunching underfoot. We stayed at Folsom Inn (#2 below) in the spring, and loved watching the sheep amble across our bedroom window.

  1. I stayed at the amazingly beautiful Little Sugar River house last fall, when the colors of the prairie looked exactly like they do in the photo. Perfect. Best of all the bike trail that runs along the river and by the house leads directly to New Glarus Brewery!

     

  2. Matt: Good to know. It’s been on my list for awhile, but now that I’m not in Chicago as much, not sure when I’ll make my way over there. But a brewery and cheese bike tour is tempting!
