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.

I'm a licensed Massage Therapist offering therapeutic massage on site. $45. for a one hour massage

I offer breakfast delivered to the cabin $30. for two. If you would like breakfast I will send a menu for you to choose.

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.

Get-a-way Girl & her Guy

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.

Nice cozy stay

We used the property next door last year and wanted to try this cabin next. It was a real cozy setting and weren't disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

This is exactly what we needed! Our dog got to come along, the hot tub is magnificent. It was very easy to enjoy our time to the fullest. It was absolutely the perfect size for 2 and everything necessary was there! I'm completely satisfied with the experience in its entirety! We will be back again for sure! Anyone looking for a little time away needs to check this place out! Affordable, more than accommodating, and not to mention beautiful! Thank you Jack's Little Log Cabin!

Charming cabin in a cozy setting.

  • 5 of 5

We came for the weekend to get away from the city. We enjoyed the cabin. It's very cozy and the cows across the street are quite charming. It's not completely alone there are several cabins nearby, but no one bothered us. It's close to Steelville which was a nice place to go and walk around. It was also close to Dillard's Mill for a nice day trip. The hot tub was awesome, the cabin was clean, and the DirecTV was a plus. Make sure you take a quick shower or the water turns ice cold! I would recommend this cabin and I would also come back to it someday.

Nice solitude, wonderful cozy house and great owner

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little cabin, loved to moo cows across the road (yep I'm a city slicker). When it was time to leave dummy me couldn't find my keys (thought I dropped them while looking at said cows). Cindy had Don come out and help me look for a needle in the haystack for an hour and a half. Then he didn't kill me when I found the keys in the door of the car.

Beautiful cabin and setting.

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this property and the owner. We arrived on 1/11/17 and everything was so perfect about the property and the cabin. Thursday morning we had breakfast delivered promptly at 9am in this cute picnic basket - the food was delicious. I highly recommend taking the owner up on this offer. We did have to cut our stay short by a day due to the impending ice storm but Cindy had everything ready should we stay, from ice melt to candles and a generator should the power have gone out. Great get away, we will book again.

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.
