Charming Keokuk Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Julie has a charming home to share. We had all we needed and wanted and were very comfortable. The kitchen is convenient and there are plenty of sleeping spaces. There are also many spots to sit and visit, inside and outside. It felt like home. There is a lovely yard to explore with perennial flowers and bushes. We saw deer and songbirds and heard bullfrogs. Got to see geodes being split. Enjoyed the night sky from the front deck. Got to see and hear daily freight trains. Whoever heard a train would yell "Train, train" and we'd all run to watch. Didn't wake us at night, though. The view of the Mississippi is outstanding. Could sit and look at it all day. Enjoyed exploring Keokuk, too. Direct route to get to Rand Park, Grand Ave., Main Street and Victory Park. Lock and Dam 19 is very interesting. Saw barges and a towboat going North through the Lock. The George M. Verity River Museum is a must to visit. A great tour and gifts to buy. A memorable trip for all four of us. Would love to stay again sometime. Thank you Julie.

Comfortable, pleasant and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay. The bed was very comfortable and the scenery was so peaceful and beautiful. Sitting on the deck and enjoying everything was wonderful. The birds singing, the ducks waddling around and the deer (doe and two fawns) coming out from the trees to look the place over all added to our enjoyment.

Great location for fishing sightseeing and wildlife encounters.

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was quite cozy and well equipped. All we needed was food for the fridge and some condiments. Cooking utensils, dishes etc were on hand. Julie and her family were most gracious. Had a great time and will stay there again if I ever get back that way. I can without reservation give this cabin two thumbs up. Julie is good people and she has a very talented dog!

Beautiful view from a cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Missippi Hillside home! Breathtaking view all around the home. The house was the perfect size for my family of four. Julie was amazing and made us feel at home. The house had everything we needed plus so much more. The house was perfect for a much needed vacation. We loved sitting outside on the balcony connected to the master bedroom. It was so peaceful to hear the animals nearby and look at the stars and river. We are looking forward to staying again next month and many more times in the future.

Owner was very nice and friendly. Cabin was unacceptable.

  • 1 of 5

The smell of Fabreeze and the 3 fans going when we arrived should have been a clue. Bad mold smell. And very dirty. We understand restic but this place is just old and needs much TLC. Will never stay again and will not recommend. Julie the owner is wonderful but place is not good enough to ever rent again.
