Beautiful, secluded location for a reunion gathering
I met 10 college friends from all over the country at New Haven Manor the weekend that went from May into June. We found New Haven to be an excellent fit for what we had looked for. It was very secluded (so we didn't worry about our talking and laughter late into the night). There is a nice porch, grill, and fire pit outside. Inside we appreciated the large kitchen, separate dining area that could seat all of us, and plenty of beds for us to individually sleep on. There was also a nice circular table adjacent to the kitchen that worked well for our games of sheepshead. Although there are some half-steps that are easy to miss or forget about, they only created a few stumbles/chuckles for our group. Also, internet access is much slower than most people are used to these days (but that was near the bottom of our list of priorities).
We found New Haven to be plenty close to the Kickapoo for a kayak outing on the beautiful stretch from Rockton to LaFarge. Amy provided plenty of information about the place and her expectations for guests in advance of our stay. I highly recommend this property to large groups/families who would like to stay in a very nice and clean place in the Kickapoo River Valley area.
large, secluded, functional, beautiful
What a beautiful property! We went in the middle of winter (just last weekend) and enjoyed seeing deer in the yard and sledding on the hills. The other thing we enjoyed is each others' company! We had 23 people there one night and 12 of them were kids. But with so much space, it honestly never felt crowded. It was wonderful! Three bathrooms w/ showers and tubs (amazing), plus two eating spaces, plus a huge, open kitchen area, plus two tv's with seating. We played a slideshow by hooking my sister's laptop up to the HDMI port on one of the tv's. It was for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, so there was literally a lifetime of photos (.jpgs) to go through. It was so fun to sit around with my siblings, parents, and kids/ nieces/ nephews. We played board games and card games, ate Girl Scout cookies, drank hot chocolate, did some sewing with Grandma, and talked. And laughed! As others have noted, the Wi-Fi, while present, was extremely slow. That didn't bother us! We weren't there to live on our devices. :) It was a great location to spend quality time together. My one caution is what others have said: it is hilly and rural and getting in and out of the property while it was snowing was a bit of a challenge for the folks with cars without 4-wheel drive. It was fine-- everybody made it-- but be prepared with things like salt / sand, floor mats, and use some good common sense. Have fun!
Beautiful home in a rural area
We had a wonderful time with our family at this beautiful home in Norwalk. Owner was extremely responsive and very easy to work with!
We stayed in this home for an extended family vacation where the main goal was to relax and enjoy each other's company. This house allowed us to do just that.
The bedrooms were comfortable, the house was spacious and the kitchen was well stocked (making it easy to cook for a large group!). There were plenty of games, books and DVDs to use - our kids were even excited to see many games they enjoy! There is plenty of space in the house to get away and have some quiet time, but plenty of space for kids to run around and play.
We arrived the night of a snow storm and would definitely caution you to bring a good vehicle that can handle snow on rural roads. The owner does a good job including that information in her welcome packet ahead of time - but we saw first hand why it was so important. As it is out in the country, the roads are not plowed immediately. But the plow came through early enough in the morning that we were able to get out and head to Fort McCoy for some tubing! Everyone loved our weekend here - would highly recommend it!
We had a wonderful family weekend at New Haven, again!
This was a return visit for our family gathering, and we had a wonderful time again! Everyone wants to make this an annual visit, as the house works so perfectly for our large family! Plenty of space for the grandchildren to run snd play, and quiet corners for those who want to relax or rest. Our family has grown since the last visit, and 23 of us (including 2 babies) had places to sleep, eat, bake cookies, play games and just enjoy being together. Sledding on the hills and star gazing at night were big hits! Everything in the house was perfect, clean and ready for us when we arrived. Thank you for sharing New Haven! The kids are already asking when we are going back to the big house!
New Haven was a wonderful place for our extended family of 16 to be together for three days.
This large home is situated in scenic Amish Country. The spacing of the rooms allowed for many groups to participate in different activities without distracting others. The youngest members of our family took over the great room, the adults gathered around the fire place, and we all spent time together in the spacious kitchen and living room for meals and games. We were delighted to find out that the large home was evenly heated and felt very cozy. It was also surprisingly sound proof. The owner was easily accessible and very helpful. We all enjoyed our stay in the New Haven Rental.
Great place for my nephew you run around in. Quiet and peaceful place. WiFi is not the best. Space was perfect for our family. Beautiful area, lots of area to walk even in the winter months.
The map above does NOT display the correct area. This property is located in a large Amish community. Approximately 5 minutes from downtown Ontario, WI and Wildcat State Park.
Lots of Amish bakeries, shops and tours.
