Spring ephemerals blooming in nature lovers paradise
In the midst of a splendid countryside outside Sparta Wisconsin, at 7452 Kathryn Avenue, you’ll find Justin Trails Resort…a nature photographer’s dream. Innkeepers, Don and Donna Justin welcome guests with a passion for the outdoors year round.
There is plenty of room for privacy in 2 separate Scandinavian Full-Scribe log cabins and a cottage. Three suites in the 1920 foursquare farmhouse feature whirlpools and fireplaces.

Placing special emphasis on the environment we create an organic “green” eco-friendly resort by upcycling buildings, reducing waste, growing and buying local produce for your breakfast. Farm land is leased to an organic farmer growing alfalfa, corn, and winter rye. 1.5 acres are rented to The Gardeners, a Hmong couple who grow veggies for a farmers market. One hundred thirty-five acres of woodland is being carefully tended to remove exotic species to enhance the oak savanna, oak forest, prairie and goat prairie remnant. The Justins are members of The Prairie Enthusiasts and love talking prairie with guests, working prescribed burns and hosting their own burns.
Join us for “Redneck TV” (watching the fire)…we’ll provide the wood.
