Farm Lunch


Thunder Valley Inn

For some of us, Wisconsin Dells means Noah's Ark, Tommy Bartlett's, or the Original Wisconsin Ducks. For others, it summons up images of camping and canoeing on the magnificent Wisconsin River. But for the lucky guests who've found Thunder Valley Inn it means a very special kind of Norwegian farm family hospitality!


the Nelson family

Thunder Valley Inn is a 130-year-old farmstead located just one mile from the historic Dells River District. Though minutes from all Dells attractions, Thunder Valley Inn offers something unique to visitors-a slice of old-fashioned farm hospitality! Anita Christopherson Nelson and her daughters, Kari and Sigrid, share their sincere, warm welcome with every guest. Whether visiting the charming bed & breakfast inn or dropping by the farm restaurant for a homemade meal, the Nelsons will help you feel at home. You'll find sumptuous made-from-scratch food, servers in Scandinavian dress, and strains of fiddle music in the air. Also check out the farmers market we host on Sundays in the summer and fall for fresh, local produce and crafts.
