About the property

New 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath authenic log cabin with large covered front porch

Ellen's log cabin is 2 and a half story's. It starts with a large covered porch that looks over the valley, a great place for your morning coffee. Walk into the living room with a cathedral ceiling and stairs that lead to the loft. The loft is where the master bedroom is located with an en suite bathroom. Back to the first floor is a full kitchen with a large walk out deck that is actually in the trees. This deck has a large table for outdoor eating and BBQ grill for grilling. The lower floor has 2 bedrooms, family room (which doubles as another private bedroom) and full bathroom. From the family room you walk out to a private lower deck with a hot tub and seating. A fire pit is in the back yard surrounded by woods, very private. Do not worry about where to buy the wood for your fire, we provide it with your cabin.

We rent Ellen's by the bedrooms needed. The rate you see here is one of our seasonal rates for a couple. Additional guest is $25. per guest per night. We offer the couple rate so, a couple can come and stay without paying for all the bedrooms.

Wonderful time in an idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic place to "get away from it all". "Ellen's Cabin" is bigger, prettier and cleaner than the pictures can convey. We were over the top happy with our gals getaway. I can't think of a single complaint about anything! I definitely want to come stay here again. Thank you, Cindy Gill!!

It is always relaxing and a joy to spend time at Ellen's cabin. The property is beautiful and always relaxing, seems like our stays are always too short.

A great place to get away

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Ellen's Log Cabin. The cabin is very clean and cozy, and well secluded yet not too far outside of Steelville. The bed is very comfortable. The hot tub is fantastic -- it is very relaxing by itself but the mineral system makes it that much better. The whole stay is just great, and it has become one of our favorite trips of the year. Looking forward to visiting again next year. If you're looking for a place to get away from everything for a while and just unwind, this is a great choice.

Wonderful Fall Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was in a lovely wooded setting with neighbors not too close. The furniture was comfortable and the home clean. Firewood was provided for the fire pit. It has 2 decks with a hot tub on the lower deck that was enjoyed by guests. A half bath is located on the main level. There are no bedrooms on the main level which presents a challenge to those with limited mobility and the stairs leading to the upstairs are exceptionally steep ruling this bedroom out for those having trouble on the stairs. The stairway leading down to 3 bedrooms/family room is of a normal pitch. The beds are all very comfortable. Fortunately the downstairs bathroom has a walk in shower. Because the shower floor is slippery, I would recommend a shower mat and installation of a grab bar. Better outside lighting on the lower level would make is safer to negotiate the stairway into the yard after dark. Everyone in our party enjoyed the surroundings and spaciousness of the cabin which is a short drive into Steeleville.
