We were really surprised with the peace and solitude of the place. It had everything we needed for cooking, laundry, and relaxation. We had a private tour of the old Norwegian homestead which was very interesting and unexpected. We would highly recommend this accommodation and would be happy to stay there again when visiting the area.

The cabin was just what our family needed for a quiet weekend away. The cabin was clean, comfortable, and cozy. We came with our two daughters (ages 3 and 8). We had so much fun exploring on the trails, as well as, the historic buildings on site. It was an easy trip over to La Crosse for a fun day trip too. The kitchen is fully equipped (but you will need to bring ALL food needed to prepare a meal...salt and pepper shakers are the only thing available). One thing to note: if stairs are really a challenge for you, the bathroom (clean and modern) is located in the basement. The upstairs bedroom is only reachable with steep ladder-like stairs as well, but there is sleeping available on the main floor. This was a GREAT stay. I hope to be back soon!

Set on a 400 acre property with historic buildings, the cabin's surroundings are beautiful. We enjoyed close access to the trails and river, as well as seeing the 19th century buildings and learning more about the Norwegian settlers. The cabin is rustic and could use a refresh but easy access to the outdoors (including a fire pit and picnic table) made it work for us. The entire driftless region of Wisconsin is a hidden gem and shouldn't be missed.

This is a great place to stay when you want to escape your electronic gadgets and spend time with family and friends or just a romantic few days with someone special. We woke up each morning to birds singing, a doe and her fawn, a rabbit nibbling on clover and a raccoon scurrying off into the woods all in the privacy of the backyard. The flora and fauna more than made up for the lack of a freezer (only a fridge).

Great place to get away and relax with family and/or friends. We enjoyed the quiet, private time and sights to see in the surrounding communities.

Norskedalen has been built by volunteers over the past 40 years who believe that remembering their heritage is the best way to pave the road to the future. Since Norskedalen is not about me, but about those who built it and those who will keep it growing, what I share with you here is reflective of Norskedalen and it's members.

Buildings were moved to Norskedalen from a variety of surrounding farms. Each of the buildings were lived in and/or used within 10 miles of where they now stand. The Homestead is built in traditional Norwegian style of a 'tun', or U shape. A tobacco barn resides at the top of the hill behind the homestead, reflecting the significance of the tobacco farms in this area. All of this work was done by volunteers on weekends and evenings, with no paid staff, no budget, no funding. Just the belief that preserving the history of this area is important for the future. Tremendous friendships have been built during the building of Norskedalen!

The Paulson Cabin was built in the 1840's. The kitchen and basement were added to make it modern, but otherwise what you see in the living room and upper level is what the Paulson family lived in.

Your rental of the Paulson cabin includes access to Norskedalen grounds; stop in the Visitors' Center for information on events, hiking trails, museums and gifts shops.
