Kick back and get away from it all. This unique beachfront cabin takes on many different personalities depending on which season or even the time of day. Summertime, it is a beachhouse, Fall ,it gives the feel of a cozy cabin nestled in a deep valley at the base of a bluff. The Fall foliage contrasted with the river reflecting the blue sky can be striking. Wintertime ,the stark contrast from the white snowscape outside to the warmth inside really adds to the cozy feeling. Downey Woodpeckers and other wild birds hang out at the feeder. Shopping in Dubuque is a scenic 20 minute drive on paved roads. The Master bedroom is a great place to start the new day. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the bedrooms deck and watch the river light up with the morning sun. The Master queen and double twin bedrooms share a toilet and pedastel sink. Downstairs is the bunkbed bedroom with a full size on the bottom and twin on top. The main bathroom features an oversized shower with a tankless water heater which provides for long showers, Two foldout cots with self inflateing air mattresses can be placed where needed.

Why The Owner chose Dubuque

There is not another place like it. Beach, harbor, and cabin with spectacular view on 2 acres is unheard of. Plus it is totally remote yet 15 minutes from shopping.

What makes this cabin unique

Next door is Dubuque County's, Finleys Landing Park . 120 acres of rugged hiking. Climb the 150 foot river bluff for a spectacular view of the Mississipi River valley. For those non-hikers try a 15 minute drive to Balltown, the view from the viewing area is spectacular. While in Balltown check out Breitbachs Country Dining for a meal or drink. It is the oldest tavern in Iowa.

Awesome and memorable experience!

  • 5 of 5

Dan's cabin is in a breathtakingly beautiful location - not to mention that the cabin itself was immaculate, well-stocked, and the property was in extremely well-maintained condition. We were blown away with how nice and clean everything was. We had a great girls weekend and I will definitley be back to this cabin sometime. If my husband is lucky he will get to come next time! HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend staying here for a wonderful ambience and memorable get-away. Thanks Dan!

Guys Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Booked this destination for a winter guys weekend with some old college buddies. Secluded, peaceful, easily sleeping 6, we really enjoyed hanging out and catching up. The fireplace was a big hit with us. You could tell the location was a bit more ideal for summer months (to take advantage of the beach), but it was nice in the winter too to get away from it all. We appreciated that the kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals.

Cozy by the fire

  • 5 of 5

A relaxing weekend. Plenty for the kids to do inside and outside.(age 11) They built snowmen on the beach, climbed and I think they played every game that was found on the shelf. We had brought our own coffee, but was impressed to find some in the cabinet. It was so nice not to have to bring towels, bedding and kitchen ware. We definitely see ourselves coming back!

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great get away place! Nice place along river, quiet and peaceful. Was well furnished and supplies were wonderful! Nice not to have to pack coffee pot, towels and sheets! And still have the enjoyment of a cabin and not a motel! Very nice beach! The fishing could be better. The playground area was great for little ones. Enjoyed the humming birds and the geese flying over in the morning. Short trip to town to sightsee.

AMAZING PLACE

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. It is very well maintained and the property is so peaceful and it felt like home. Dan was very helpful with everything and even met us at the property to make sure everything was ok. We live in California and hopefully will be coming back to stay at this wonderful home. Dan thank you for everything (you know what that was). You were great.

Fantastic area/cabin for boating, fishing, hiking

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we have come back to the cabin and bring all the family and the Grandkids. They love the sand beach and we love the proximity to the river and access to it nearby. Beautiful yard with fire pit is relaxing. All the amenities we needed. Very clean and great space for us 8. Dan was very helpful and nice. Thanks. We will be back
