Speaking on behalf of our entire group, (11 of us), I would like to say thank you for accommodating our stay at the lodge. Never has quiet been so quiet or dark so dark at night… and the view of the stars amazing. We were able to see the white deer every day of our visit… two bucks up the hill as you described and the doe to the west of the lodge as well as a fawn no more than 150-200 feet from the kitchen window. It was a biking trip for our memory books. Bike loops were easy to drive to and the loops themselves a challenge for even our most seasoned riders. We found everything in the kitchen needed to prepare our meals, were thankful for the ice machine given this week’s hot, steamy weather. We had plenty of sleeping areas and blankets and pillows to accommodate the comings and goings of our group throughout the week. Thank you for building and sharing this peaceful retreat.

How wonderful and relaxing the White Deer Lodge is for us. We love our nightly drives looking for deer. The first night we saw a really big white albino buck, he was beautiful and a very nice rack – all in white! Then completing our first night drive, we were welcomed back to the lodge by a little white albino fawn! She just stood and watched us – then ran to her brown mommy on the hill by the kitchen window. So cute! Again we saw lots of deer and a few huge bucks (12 pointers). We had such a great time staying by the lodge and hanging out.

This is a beautiful place. We came from Ireland and really enjoyed our stay. We saw deer everyday. The white deer slept in the grass on the hill outside.

What a beautiful and serene get away! Ten of us enjoyed each other and every moment of this delightful lodge. The knotty pine combined with the soothing greens and cozy furnishings was so welcoming from the moment we walked in the door. It was just what the great physician ordered for we weary city-folk. Your labors have not been in vain. God bless you and prosper you in every way.

Thank you again for the lovely, relaxing vacation – coming to White Deer Lodge is our very favorite vacation. We feel right at home; in fact, wish it was our home! We headed for Winona first then back to Fountain City to the winery. Yesterday we had a picnic in Merrick Park. For the 4th we headed to the celebration in Buffalo City for great food and a fun parade! The fireworks display in Waumandee, only a couple miles from the lodge, was awesome! It’s time to go back to the real world. We hope to come back soon.

I have been looking forward to this place sense finding the brochure at Nelson Cheese Factory. It is so peaceful and quiet here – no traffic noise or trains – just birds and country sounds. Lodge is beautiful inside and out. Plan to come back and enjoy the different seasons as soon as possible. This is my kind of vacation!

You have such a beautiful place here – it is heaven’s oasis. The wildlife is amazing! We saw deer every night across the way on the hills. Last night we saw the mother deer with 2 fawns and the albino fawn in the woods behind the lodge. It was really amazing! Thank you for opening up your beautiful lodge. It was a treat to be here.

Thank you for renting out this awesome lodge to people like us that respect others and the beauty of nature. My wife and I biked the Cannon Valley Trail from Red Wing, MN to Cannon Falls. It is also nice to be so close to the river towns on both the Wisconsin and Minnesota side. We will be back soon as we only have a two hour drive back to the city. We told our neighbors about this place and they want to come with us in the fall to see the trees change color and tour the vineyards. My wife and I will be back soon as we like this area to motorcycle ride and snowshoe in the winter. May God bless this lodge!!

This is our 2nd time here. We celebrated our wedding anniversary #39. What a peaceful oasis, the quiet calm idyllic scenery - the white deer – as well as numerous tawny cousins. We will be back. Beautiful, heavenly, welcoming, restful… Thank you for the gift of paradise.

Any weather, anytime – wonderful, wonderful. Thanks for the memory. I am in awe of the possibilities here, from sunrise to sunset. I am so happy to have shared White Deer Lodge with my dear friends. We have had two wonderful days of laughter, games, good food and wine. Being here, sharing meals and enjoying the view has been and will be memorable. Thank you
