Whether you are seeking a serene place to read a book or an exciting hike in the woods, Horn's Ferry Hideaway is your place! We are located just steps from the 23 mile Volksweg Trail where you can bike, hike or walk; next door to Ivan's Campground, making us a perfect destination for large group gatherings and moments from Lake Red Rock, Iowa's largest man-made lake where you can boat, fish, or swim until your heart's content. Horn's Ferry Hideaway is also adjacent to the 32 acre Gladys Black Bald Eagle Refuge - making for outstanding bird watching.

Historic Pella is a treat to visit any time of year with countless charming shops, dining options, and historic points of interest. Golfing is always a fun alternative!
We look forward to your visit, and the opportunity to create just the experience you are looking for - a romantic getaway or action-packed vacation!
Hello Potential Guests! My wife and I, Hugh and Tracy Howe, own and operate Horn's Ferry Hideaway. We are a small Ma and Pa type business that takes pride in the comfort and details of your stay with us. We have made it our mission to provide the best accommodations in the area for couples, families, and sportsmen to getaway from it all and connect with each other and God's creation. We often hear our guests tell us the cabins and property exceeded their expectations. This is why we have so many repeat customers. Be prepared for a pleasant surprise when you arrive and an unforgettable experience at Lake Red Rock, Iowa's largest lake and public land.
Hugh and Tracy Howe purchased this cabin in 2014
This place is magic! This is our first time here, but it won't be our last. We spent good times with family and with the outdoors. Did our first experiences with geocaching (loved it!) and took several "roads less traveled" through the woods. "Haven" is the perfect word. Thanks and thanks again. We'll be back!
We enjoyed our stay very much. Owners very accommodating. He thought there was going to be a problem with the water heater and was on top of the situation immediately. It was all taken care of before we arrived. Loved the cabin. Enjoyed the bike trails nearby.
Nice cozy cabin! It was great going out on the lake and shopping in Pella.
Very friendly owners that were more than happy to provide info about that area!
Excellent stay overall!
This is our 4th year coming to "the cabin." We enjoy the solitude, wildlife, serenity and top-notch modern cabins. The things to do span the spectrum of active vs passive. We usually just read, write and draw (and of course EAT). However, there are a multitude of activities ranging from social (e.g., tours in Pella) to private (nature hikes, preserves, etc.). We LOVE the eagles in January!
My husband and I have been coming to Horn’s Ferry Hideaway for several years now. The first couple years we would come just once a year in November, and this past year we have come to our “home away from home” five times throughout the year. It is our favorite place to go to relax and get away from our everyday busy lives. The cabin is always very clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated which makes it feel like home. It has all the amenities anyone could dream of. We love to cook and grill out and they always have everything we need. Hugh and his wife are extremely accommodating and are excellent to work with when booking and making our stay as care-free as possible. There are so many trails and outdoor activities to do around Lake Red Rock, which are all within walking distance from the cabin. We have explored numerous walking trails, canoed and kayaked in some beautiful places, and have caught some great fish in the lake and river. There are also great bike paths for all levels of riders. We also love to go uptown Pella and visit all the unique stores, and of course the bakery! We have research and visited many cabins in Iowa and there is just nowhere around that is as great as Horn’s Ferry Hideaway!
We stayed in the cabin/s for 2 nights and had an amazing time! We stayed in 1 cabin and my in-laws stayed in the other, worked out PERFECTLY!! Very cozy and clean cabins. The cabins had everything we needed, plus more! Very private and peaceful. Very spacious inside and out. Amazed that the TV's even had cable!! Great location too. We can't wait to go back... already!!! (You should maybe add another cabin or 2 since your dates fill up so quickly!?) :) :)
One thing that would have been nice or a suggestion I have for the owners, picnic tables outside by the fire pits would have been perfect! :)
Amazing cabin's and the owners were extremely professional and nice!!!
Just got back from our 2nd stay...this place it totally awesome. I don't know why anyone would stay in a hotel when you can stay here...it has everything. You see deer, eagles the scenery is the best...Thanks for letting us reconnect!
