Traveling through southern Minnesota, we finally made it to our destination where we had rented a cottage through Airb&b called the Northshore Cottage on Lake Onalaska. This is the second time I’ve used Airb&b and it has worked out great. (Have you ever used them before?)
Our cottage had a view of a bay off of the Mississippi River. It looked beautiful to me but my husband said there was “scum” in the water. Well, if scum can be beautiful then this was it. Kind’ve an olive green, no?
Here’s another view.
We sat on the bench and watched the sun go down one day. It was magnificent!
The cottage had a view of the water from the deck and one of the bedrooms.
The inside of the cottage was quaint and comfortable. I like when the wifi works with no glitches.
I was really impressed with the mother/daughter team that rents this cottage out. They were proactive in getting in touch with me and checking to see if we needed anything. The cottage was quaint and clean.
The restaurants nearby had really good food. I was especially surprised at how good the food was at the Red Pines Bar and Grill in Lacrosse, Wisconsin which was nearby. They even knew how to make sweet potato fries that weren’t greasy! Yum!
Across the street from the cottage we were able to take a trail through the National Wildlife Refuge. And for the first time in my life, I can say that I walked through a trail of grasshoppers. I don’t know why there were so many out but as we walked the grasshoppers on our path hopped out of our way. Very very odd.
This is definitely an area that I would like to visit again.
