Inn at Wawanissee Point
We're located atop the Baraboo Range in Sauk County, an ancient rock outcrop blanketed by the largest block of mostly unfragmented deciduous forest remaining in Wisconsin and the upper Midwest. The Baraboo Hills span 25 miles, providing habitat for 135 breeding bird species. Our 42-acre estate has several miles of wooded and prairie trails for birding and adjoins the Parfrey's Glen State Natural Area where you'll find the state-threatened Cerulean warbler and Acadian flycatcher. Hike seven state natural areas, three state parks, including Devil's Lake State Park, and several preserves a stone's throw to 30 minutes away to find birds like the wood thrush; scarlet tanager; red-eyed and yellow-throated vireos; wood pewee; crested flycatcher; redstarts; Cerulean, hooded and Kentucky warblers; veery; hermit thrush; bald eagles (winter here); turkey vultures; blue herons (a rookery at Devil's Lake) and many others. Sandhill cranes nest in the marsh across the road from us. Bird from your car by driving past several of the 26 state natural areas in Sauk County and from rustic roads Orchard, Schara and Ruff in the heart of the wooded hills, and Levee Road along the 16,000-acre Leopold-Pine Island Important Bird Area along the Wisconsin River, 11 miles northeast of us. The International Crane Foundation in Baraboo is 20 minutes from here. We're in the southern savanna region of the Great Wisconsin Birding & Nature Trail; www.wisconsinbirds.org/trail has more details. We provide directions, and have binoculars, a spotting scope and field guides at the Inn.
