We very much enjoyed our trip. Our hosts were great. The hiking trails were enjoyable for both us and our dog. The included breakfast was lovely. The accomodations were very nice for "glamping".
We had a wonderful time. Nice accommodations, Donna is fantastic. Dawn is an excellent ambassador for things to do in Wisconsin. One of our group brought a pet dog who also signaled appreciation for the time away from home. I recommend Justin Trails Resort.
The Fall Colors were in full bloom. The setting is picturesque, relaxing. You feel like you're living in a Hallmark card. Donna makes homemade breakfasts every day and it really could not have been a nicer time for our Anniversary. I hate to give too good of a review, but I really can't make any suggestions for their improvement. We lived in that area for 15+ year and enjoy coming back every year for a visit. Now we know where we want to stay! It is simply a charming place to stay.
Our Fall getaway to the Wisconsin Driftless Region was highlighted by our stay at Justin Trails Resort. This was our first time visiting this region and Justin Trails. Dina rolled out a warm welcome to us and Donna went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and needs were more than met. Donna’s wonderful hot breakfast buffet each morning was delicious and reflected the bounty of the region. We enjoyed conversing with Donna and the other guests during breakfast each day. Donna shared her expertise of the region and provided us with suggestions for areas we should visit from the beautiful drive along the ridge to Grandad Bluff in Lacrosse to Warrens for a cranberry bog adventure. Awesome sunrises, sunsets, stargazing, and serene trail walks with our dachshund are just a few of the activities we enjoyed at Justin Trails. We will definitely return!…
I visited the resort as part of a birthday celebration for a friend in Wisconsin. Being from Texas, I sometimes forget how beautiful other parts of this country are! The staff was awesome, the accommodations (from tent camping to farmhouse suites and cottages) were clean and lovely. The proprietor made you feel like you were visiting their home… which I guess you are. Beautiful trails and fire pits. From friends and family to a romantic getaway to the cool barn venue, Justin Trails has it all.
Donna was an excellent hostess. twice a day she inquired if we needed anything for our cabin. The grounds were amazing, 200 acres for hiking or disc golf. Trails were cut and gardens around cabins beautiful. I loved our"Cottage". It had everything we needed, comfortable bed, a two person spa tub and lots of huge bath sheets. The added bonus.... she cooks an amazing country breakfast for her guests, price included. I loved the location, out in the country, lots of area to hike or sit to enjoy the scenery, no highway sounds and lights. If you like night life this might not be the place for you.
Justin Trails is a bit of a magic kingdom waiting to be discovered. The setting is idyllic, nestled in a valley farm and sheltered on 3 sides by hardwood forests it feels like a hideaway. Our large party stayed in the Paul Bunyan and Sunrise cabins. Both were impeccably clean with amazingly comfortable beds and sheets with a fantastic thread count. I wish we could have stayed longer. The host family is friendly and helpful in every way and the farm breakfast was perfect for kicking off a day of cycling on the Sparta/Elroy trail. I wish we could have stayed longer!
I can't give enough kind words for how Justin trails staff and grounds are amazing. Even if you don't disc golf, the course is amazing. The cabin was very cozy and perfect for staying in several nights. The night time skies are as beautiful as the farm. There are tons of activities for everyone young and old. I'm most likely coming back for another visit.
We originally planned and made arrangements with the host to stay 5 nights because of our son’s wedding was taking place at the resort. Before arriving we changed it to 2 nights since we decided to a camp closer to Ft. McCoy where our son is stationed. The venue is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, breath taking really. The host and family however left a bad taste. Our stay was not what we had hoped, and we will not return to this location. First, Donna, the host was not very welcoming or friendly when we arrived. Anytime we went into the giftshop, no one was around if we wanted to purchase anything. There were signs inside about prices for everything… Be prepared, they charge for everything, even independent (unguided) hikes on their trails. After the wedding Dawn, and I mean right after… like during the reception, the host’s adult daughter approached our son, an NCO in the US Army, and asked if he were some kind of general or something due to all the ribbons and medals on his dress uniform. My son told her these medals and ribbons are earned in service, many were combat related. Her response was along the lines that she wanted to make sure she was giving him proper respect IF he were a general or something. We have family both enlisted and commissioned that made great sacrifices to serve our country. I don’t know about you, but if you have served … you deserve respect. If you’ve been deployed and risked your life… you deserve respect and gratitude. The host was not very accommodating to the day of even coordinator who was managing the ceremony location and the reception in the barn. Immediately after the wedding ceremony, WHILE PICTURES WERE BEING TAKEN, Donna started removing chairs. I was horrified that she even started removing chairs and décor while pictures were being taken. She didn’t even give the coordinator a chance to get the guest settled in the barn and return to take care of this….THEN CHARGED my son and is bride over $250 for having to remove the chairs. This was only one of the additional charges. As the reception was ending, Donna asked my son if they wanted to park their Harley’s (his and his bride each have one) in the barn to protect them from the storm cell that was approaching. I thought… “hmmm, this is very kind and thoughtful”. She moved rubber mats inside the door to park each bike on. Meanwhile, no mention of fee or charges…. yup, there was a charge the next day for parking the bikes in the barn. They have cabins and rustic camping available. Most of the grounds are well taken care of but more attention around the cabins is needed. The entry walkway for the cabin my son and his bride stayed in had a very unsafe pathway. What looked like carpeting was put down over uneven ground and the vegetation was growing over the path. Unfortunately, my new daughter-in-law’s mother fell, nearly hitting her head on the doorstep immediately after the wedding as we retreated to allow guest to vacate to allow for after wedding photos to be taken. There was a back patio on this particular cabin that we couldn’t use due to the wasp and nest there. So here’s the low-down, if you’re staying for one night, the farm is beautiful. They have a large gravel parking area and pretty much allow you to park in any direction you desire. If you decide to enjoy the farm… they charge for everything. If you’re looking for a venue to host an event like our son and his bride did. Get EVERYTHING in writing first, they were charged HUNDREDS of dollars in additional fees on top of the contracted agreed upon charges.…
It has everything we need such as excellent breakfast, cozy room, hospitality, quiet location, disc golf, hiking trails, hot tub/whirlpool, friendly hosts/hostesses, nice restaurants and well-known biking trails nearby.
