The artisan-renovated farmhouse, with thoughtful, restorative amenities, sits perched on a small hill overlooking a gentle valley. Visit our website for a closer look at Hidden Hollow (www.) — hiddenhollowacreage

When you arrive, you will find a locked gate, and a key box. We'll send you the access code in advance. Please lock the gate behind you when you arrive, and keep it locked during your stay. The lane leading up to the Farmhouse if 1/2 mile long, and winds through rocky creek beds. Please drive slowly, and use caution when crossing the creek beds.

There is no official driveway leading up to the Farmhouse. We ask that you park down in front on the gravel. Please do not block access for other vehicles in case of emergency. If you would like to drive up to the Farmhouse to unload your vehicle you are welcome to do so.

I am available any time day or night for a phone call or text. I live in Decorah, about an hour away. If you need assistance during your stay, the Caretaker lives in the second house on the property. If he is unavailable, our neighbor can help you with any emergency that may pop up.
The Caretaker will be in residence if you have any questions or concerns. We want you to enjoy as much privacy as possible while you are here, so the Caretaker will accommodate you as much as he can.


We have a $200. damage fee in place. You must sign a liability waiver to stay at the property.

Because there is a pond, hiking trails, an outdoor fire pit, and wood burning fireplaces, guests must sign a contract for their own welfare and safety, and a Do-No-Harm to Hidden Hollow. We will send you the contract via email, and you can sign it electronically.

Hidden Hollow is a great place to bring your dog. We let our dogs run free without concerns of cars. There are three dog dishes, and two large comfy dog beds available, as well as a dog gate and mudroom equipped with 'dog towels'. There is also a poop can behind the house, pooper scoopers, and small bags to take on hikes. Please pick up your dog poop - even on the trails. This makes it much nicer for the next guest who comes along. No dogs allowed on any furniture. Please prevent your dog from jumping on window ledges and screens. Your dog is free to run around and explore! However, we are not responsible for any harm or injury. If you need to wash your dog, please use the exterior hose. No dogs in the Bathtub! Please be sure that your dogs are up on all shots, and heartworm and tick medication.

We have a beautiful indoor fireplace in the FarmHouse, a small woodstove in the cabin, and an outdoor fire pit which we hope you use! If you are not that familiar with building fires, please read the guide in the Farmhouse. To ensure that the fireplace vents properly, please refer to the guide before using - we don’t want to fill the room with smoke just before you sit down to dinner!

We welcome you to enjoy the pond! In the early summer it’s wonderful for a swim, (skinny dippers welcome!), and throughout the warm months it’s perfect for exploring and taking out the kayaks. You must supply your own lifejackets. Please do use extreme care when enjoying the pond. We are not responsible for any harm or injury or accident that may occur.

We welcome you to explore Hidden Hollow. The trails are beautiful for walking or snowshoeing. Be aware of sunburns, ticks and mosquitoes. We have sunscreen and insect repellant available.
