our tourist rental home, once a small, thriving dairy farm, waiting for
you to come out and enjoy its natural surroundings. Whispering
Creek GuestHouse is located 10 miles north of Sparta on Highway
27, outside the unincorporated village of Cataract. A stroll or bike ride
around the "block" of the guesthouse measures 3 miles. Cataract
boasts two small rural churches, two taverns serving meals and a gas station,
all within a short walk.Recreation abounds in the surrounding area. If
you enjoy fishing, the Mill Pond is located on the
north side of town. State land runs a few hundred yards north and is abundant
with wildlife, flora and fauna. The Sparta-Elroy Bike Trail
is located 10 miles to the south and fifteen miles north is Black River
Falls, which has many miles of cross country ski
and ATV trails. Melrose, 10 miles west, offers canoe
trips down the Black River. Amish tours are available
in nearby Cashton.
Whispering Creek GuestHouse is a
small white bungalow with an English Cottage feel. Surrounding the house
is a wrap-around garden landscaped in flowers, herbs, vegetables and sunflowers
planted for our guests enjoyment. A large pumpkin patch out front
along with watermelon and cantaloupe offer good eating if the weather
cooperates and your stay is during harvest time. A working windmill provides
water for the many gardens and is home to a few happy fish.
