This was a bit of heaven for me and its like going back 2 my childhood days staying on the farm in Barnum. I manage to purchase a Kerosene Lantern and pretended I was back in the settler days along with a good book to read as well and cooked over on the fire pit \with my Marshmallows. I ate lightly. I wasn't there to eat just to relax and enjoy 'fresh country air'. I came in on late Wednesday evening airplane flight out of DBQ and with the basic backpack amenities. I was only at the Cabin for (2) nights and I didn't see that 'outside electric outlet' till I was leaving the coming next morning. Otherwise, I would have "purchased a very long extension cord" 4 a lamp too see by as my eyesight is poor.
Will I come back? Of course, in 2016. I slept good and I did hear those 'Coyotes' like as if they were under my window and saw Deer in the early morning of my departure of day 3.
I was on a mission to visit the Boscobel Cemetery for my days in Wisconsin. The closing of my stay a sad Friday morning I sat and chatted with seven Horses and we 'ate' popcorn and then sat on the back steps with the house dog we 'ate' popcorn. The owners were not in present. My departure ~ " I left a Thank you note of appreciation." And I left the Kerosene Lantern at the Cabin too.
Now as for those stars at night one can only see those type of stars in the openness of the sky in the dark. I manage to find the 'north star' and talk to my mom at 10:00 p.m. One thing though, I could 'hear' my own heart beat while I was out there in the country. The country has always been 'HOME' for me and I love that corner of the State of Wisconsin. It is God's country by far. From ~ "The old one."

I needed an escape from the big city to work on my dissertation and this cabin delivered. It is isolated: you cannot see any neighbors from the cabin area; you don't hear cars; you can avoid meeting people entirely if you so wish. I went for runs with my dog and met some local folks (including a truck driver looking for his missing sheep...). Everyone was extremely friendly. Also, there is easy access to two towns (around 8 minutes away) which have grocery stores and shops with essential products. This is not a place for people who want luxury accomodations (there is only one electrical outlet; there is not a refrigerator; the stove is a wood-burning one and thus not usable in summer). But for those who like it a bit more rustic (hunters, campers, writers, etc.) this is a great getaway. Highly recommended (also Sherri was very helpful!).
