About the property

one bedroom log cabin near meramec river

Jack's Little Log Cabin offers log living in a peaceful wooded country setting 4 miles from Steelville and 12 miles from Cuba or St. James. Come on out, relax and enjoy some rest and restoration on the property or take on some of the many adventures of the nearby area. There are nearby outfitters offering canoes, rafts and kayaks or you can just play on the gravel bar, little over a mile from the cabin. There is adequate parking at the river. Other exciting activities would include sight seeing, hiking, wine tasting, or try the new zip line at Meramec Caverns. Whatever you do during the day, you can plan on coming home to enjoy your barbeque grill, fire pit with wood and of course, your own private hot tub.

The log cabin features a full front porch looking out over the valley, a large rear deck with a lower hot tub level, private bedroom with queen size log bed, private 3/4 bath, kitchenette, and living room with a flat screen TV offering satellite or DVD player with a library of movies. There is an electric fireplace in the living room for ambiance and provides heat for the cold winter months. You can also operate it without heat if your just wanting to enjoy the flames.

If your looking for a larger log cabin or Jack's is booked on your dates, go to Ellen's log cabin # 618237 here on VRBO. Ellen's is our new 3 bedroom log cabin. You can rent this cabin as a couple and you get the main floor plus loft and access to the hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you and your family so very much for providing such a perfect place for us to get away. In today's busy busy life sometimes we forget to take time for each other. The breakfast was so delicious and privacy was just what we needed.

What sets us apart from many other vacation rentals is, we only have two log cabins. You are not sharing your getaway with hundreds of strangers. The two cabins are located approximately 200 ft apart and we are always working on creating even more privacy between the two. We understand that it is important for your getaway. The two cabins together would accommodate a large group. Between the two you would have five private bedrooms plus two living rooms and Gill Ridge all to yourself.

Get-a-way Girl & her Guy

  • 5 of 5

Jacks little Cabin exceeded our expectation. Was the perfect get-a-way retreat for my Husband & I.

The listing was very accurate, the photos were right on target, the property was Very clean -Well Maintained & Welcoming, our hostess was very helpful w/any questions or concerns we had & not only would we recommend this property but we are already checking our Calendar for a return visit.

On our way down we stopped for a wine tasting at Belmont Vineyards and after having dinner in Steeleville at The Mo. Hick South...we return to the cabin & enjoy a very relaxing evening in the Hot Tub w/a glass of wine. Perfect way to unwind! The next morning we were greeted on the front porch by Sunny (the resident lab) who joined us for a stroll in the country side. Afterwards we headed down to Scott's Ford & spent some Quality time enjoying the very cool- beautiful Meramec River. We actually had the river all to ourselves until about 2 PM (which was rather nice.) After a quick clean up we headed into Steelville for a Sundae at The Soda Fountain then took a nice drive out to Dillards Mill (another Beautiful place to visit) where we explored into the early evening. When we arrived back at the Cabin we enjoyed some Cheese & crackers for a lite Dinner and then another sit in the Hot Tub before bed. The next morning we enjoyed our coffee & leisurely took our time packing up. It was actually hard to leave this Wonderful little piece of Paradise.

Perfect Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place close to home, but far enough to "get away" and this little cabin was perfect for us! We were able to cook a few meals at the cabin which was great! Our 6 month old was with us and his pack n play fit perfect in the living room area and bedroom. The cabin is in a great location. Super quiet place, but town was not far at all. We will definitely visit again in the future. Thank you!

Not too big, not too small, but just right.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic. It's an adorable little cabin with just the right amount of space and privacy. We enjoyed soaking in the spa on the back deck, cuddling in front of the faux fireplace, and listening to the cows across the road. The 3 friendly doggos that came by every once in a while to say hello made it that much more enjoyable. 10 out of 10 would recommend to a friend. If we're ever back in the area, we'll be renting from Gill Ridge again.

Idyllic getaway in Missouri

  • 5 of 5

Well-maintained, clean, home away from home. Star-gazing on clear nights from the warmth of the spa was amazing! Will definitely return.
