Our Barn:

125 Years in the Making

Driftless Barn Inn is housed in a 125 year old barn. In the past, the barn has been used for agriculture and livestock. In 1997 Dan & Signe Buege opened Our Tara Nursery & Garden Center and later Tara Erosion Control, using the barn for retail and office space.

A decade later they opened Our Tara Inn. Leaving many of the beams exposed, they created a space that hints at the barn's rustic beginnings. Dan and Signe both passed away in 2020, leaving their daughter Kari and her husband Ryan to take up their legacy.
