The best Wisconsin bed and breakfast
for winter recreation

Brambleberry B&B offers snowshoes to our guests.

Snowshoeing is a fun, low-cost way to enjoy the winter weather. We have four pairs of lightweight aluminum snowshoes that fit over your own warm winter boots. While snowshoeing is great exercise, it is more challenging than you might think!

Winter enthusiasts will feel right at home at Brambleberry Bed and Breakfast. Whether you enjoy snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice-fishing, sledding or even scuba diving under the ice at Lake Wazee, this is the place to stay. No matter what your winter sport is, you can return to a crackling log fire in our warm and inviting lounge and thaw out with a warm drink or a glass of wine.

Along with snowshoes, we also have sleds and a tobaggon at our inn with hills perfect for sledding.

Jackson County has more than 300 miles of groomed snowmobile trails which connect to 500 miles of trails in surrounding counties. There's an easy trail connection about a mile from our B&B.

Connections can be made to every trail in the state. The trails offer the unique experience of varied terrain. On the west side of the county, the trails wind through forest and agricultural land. The rolling landscape is quite steep in places, which is characteristic of the "Coulee Country" of western Jackson County and certainly adds to the challenge. In eastern Jackson County the trails meander through heavily wooded areas and a gentler, more level grade. Choose your path - the scenery is excellent and you will be sure to find well maintained trails which are groomed frequently, including weekends.

The Jackson-Trempealeau County Ridgerunners has 275 members and takes care of grooming 89 miles of state funded trails and 15 miles of club trails.  Trempealeau County is the setting for 29.5 of the state funded miles and beautiful Jackson County has the remaining 51.5 miles. 

The trail system takes sledders through Beaches Corner, Blair, Ettrick, Happy Hollow, Hixton, Northfield, Taylor, and York.  The grooming superintendent and operating crew are grooming the trails 2-3 times a week ensuring the best trail riding conditions.  Snowmobile enthusiasts believe these trails are some of the best in Wisconsin.
