The cottage is a river cabin, right on the Rock River in Rock Island Illinois in the Quad Cities. Drop down the lane and you are in the country.

The cottage has a full kitchen, living room with french doors out to a large deck that over looks the river.

About Jeff and Rosanne Puck

My husband and I were always taking our 2 sons as they were growing up on the Rock River and the Mississippi boating, skiing, tubing, and just having fun on the shores. We lived in Davenport, Ia and always looking for a place on the river to make our home. That finally came true in 1999. We love it here and want to share it with all of you! We had rented several vacation cabins/houses from Estes Park, Colorado, Okoboji, Iowa, Minnesota, Canada to Florida. We realized we have just as nice vacation area right here. Please come and enjoy!

Right on the water and relaxing as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. We had great weather all weekend. Brought our dogs and wanted to really wear them out. There is a great 10 foot sandy beach that leads into the river so we were able to throw the dogs ball in the river and sllow them to get in and out without jumping off a dock. Outside of that there is also a huge yard. We lucked out because there was no one in the house next to us so the dogs ran wild. We utilized the great deck as well as drank wine by the fire pit at night. There was nothing at all we were left wishing we could have done. The Puck's are great people as well!

Nice river location including dock

  • 5 of 5

This is a rustic cottage right on the river. It works very well to combine with the rental next door to have a family reunion. Roseanne and Jeff give top notch service and think of everything to make your stay great! This location is close to so many things. The water ski show is just down the road. Be sure to take your children to the John Deere Pavillion. They can climb on all the large equipment there.

Cozy & Comfortable Cottage by the River

  • 5 of 5

This review is long over due. Our family has been coming to Rock Island for the past 2 years, for roughly a week to 10 days a month for work. This little gem was a real find. Neat, clean, cozy and comfortable. The 2 bedroom, 1 bath, fully furnished cottage offers everything you would find in your own home. The full sized kitchen is fully loaded down to the cutlery...so it's perfect for extended stays. My husband works nights and has to sleep during the day. The cottage is peaceful and quiet and you feel like you are in the country with all the greenery and river views before you...and yet it is perfectly situated...only a 4 minutes drive to Trinity Hospital, 3 minutes drive to a shopping plaza with HyVee, Kohls, Target and others....and only 12 to 16 minutes to larger shopping areas in Moline. When the cottage is not available for the dates we need we've had to stay in hotels and it's just not the same. To top it all off, Roseann and Jeff Puck are the most amiable hosts we've ever had the good fortune to rent a vacation rental from. They are kind and friendly, helpful but not intrusive, and so very accommodating. We always try to stay at this cottage when we have to come to Rock Island. It's become like a second home to us.

Great experience. Our hosts outlined our stay from arrival to departure, all went as planned. They live right next door, they conversed but kept their distance! Nice accommodations, nothing fancy, but clean and roomy! Walking access to dock to fish or sun! Easy driving to groceries, has, restaurants. Everything we needed from toaster to coffee pot and dishes ! Comfortable beds! Love the nice touch of the never ending supply of water in the water cooler!

The cottage is right on the Rock River next door to our 'Vacation Cabin' that some of you may be familiar with that we have been renting since 2009. So, if you and another family are interested in more space, we now have it! When you step outside, the yard extends to the river and you can walk right down to it. There is a wonderful large deck to view the river and the wildlife from. Just up river, you can see the Backwater Gambler's Ski Show every Wednesday and Sunday nights. There are plenty of other things to do and the Quad Cities Convention Bureau site can tell you what is going on during the time you are vacationing. There are several golf courses, bicycling, the zoo is very nice, Celebration River Cruises and the Catfish tour boat stopping many places for you to get out and sight see, shop or eat on the Mississippi River. Lots of live entertainment, and The Rock is a Restaurant/bar that you could walk to that has live entertainment every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night, and Sunday afternoon. I-Wireless Center has big name star concerts almost every weekend. If not concerts, they are home to the Quad City Mallards Hockey team, Basketball, rodeos, demolition car derbys, circus, and on-and-on.
